DETAILS OF YOUR TRIP

Tour 2. Explore the Secrets of Wine and Olives

Starting our Day trip Safari to Cretan culture we visit an Olive Mill and then a winery for an informative tour in the Cretan secrets for a long life! We visit an ancient olive tree which is 3000 years old and an exhibition on the history of olives. Working up an appetite we arrive at a small village tavern, where we introduce you to Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Cretan hospitality. On the way up to Mesavlia we cross the gorge of Deliana with its picturesque creek nestled amongst lush vegetation. There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos of sheep and goats on our way to the cavernous chapel of Ag. Paraskevi, where we will make a short stop. On the way back we pass through Cretan villages and Olive grooves.
