We believe in experiencing and feeling the authentic vibes of every place. We have been born and bred in the South Crete (in Messara Plain) for more than three generations. So, the Cretan lifestyle & diet runs in our veins. Along with my grandmother & my mother, we would love to immerse you in Cretan culture and spirit! We would love to do that by showing you how we used to cultivate olive groves and how we do now, how you can see if an olive oil is extra virgin or not, how we harvest olive oils. Moreover we will guide you in our family's greenhouses and show you how we cultivate them. And the best part come in the end...We will have a traditional picnic under a big olive tree, where my grandma will show you how we make cheese, you will have the chance to taste warm mizithra (kind of cheese) and a variety of local meze and raki! All in all, we want to make you feel like a local Cretan. Smell, taste & feel our tradition, through a unique food tour experience!

Wine - Beer - Olive Oil Tasting Tour

The first references of wine and olive oil in Crete date back to 5000BC during the Minoan civilization. 7000 years later, Cretans produce wine, beer and olive oil on the same land, with the only changes the enhancement of production through technology and the optimization of crops. In this tour we will visit a winery, a beer and an olive oil factory. All three have high standards of production, marrying the old traditions with modern technology and processing. In each location we will spend around one hour touring the facilities and tasting. We can be flexible and eat in a local restaurant, visit a 5000 year old olive tree, nearby monastery, Maleme airfield and the WW2 military cemetery. Tour times in each location can be modified depending on the travelers' starting time and the date. Before confirming each tour, I have to double check that the tours will be available. Each location has 3-4 time slots available.
