Had such a great time on this tour. First of all Nora was absolutely fantastic and her knowledge of Crete is also amazing! The olive oil tour and tasting was great along with the beautiful scenic wine tasting. The village lunch is also lovely! Make sure you're hungry as there is certainly a lot of great food :D This tour is well worth it and was a highlight of our trip. Alex and Lindsay xx

This experience was by far one of the best tours we have ever done anywhere in the world! The most engaging, informative and helpful guides, not just for this tour where we learned a lot about olive oil and wine but also raki, but also with all manner of information about Crete in general and Rethymnon in particular. We felt like we had spent the day with good friends and learnt so much at the same time. These guys went way beyond anything we could have expected and are simply the best. Highly, highly recommended!!
