The Manousakis vineyards are world-renowned for their extraordinary beauty, and of course, savory wines. This comprehensive Chania shore excursion takes you through the gorgeous Manousakis Winery for a behind-the-scenes look into wine production. Wine tasting is included; prepare for a delectable day!

Begin your safari tour with a visit to Vatolakos Hill, where Manousakis vineyards will impress you with stunning natural beauty. An exciting off-road trip route takes you up the hill to an altitude of 660 meters. From this magnificent location, enjoy breathtaking views of Crete's northern region, the surrounding vineyards, and rejuvenating fresh air.

Continue your tour to the Manousakis Winery for a professional guided tour, starting from the traditional old Manousakis family residence, proceeding with a relaxing walk to the gorgeous garden near the winery. At the wine production facility, learn about the wine-making process and visit the cellar where wines are kept and aged. You'll also see a bottling line and sample available wines. After the tour, enjoy a full Greek-styled lunch with accompanying wines.

Book this comprehensive Chania shore excursion for a wonderful day spent in Greece's best winery. Your eyes and taste buds will be forever grateful.

Reviewer: Amy Jane
A more perfect day, I never had! This was, undoubtedly, one of my favorite excursions on my cruise. We were met immediately by our tour guide upon exiting the port. Our trip to the Manousakis Winery was idyllic and picturesque. Lunch was delicious and we sampled between 6-8 different types of wine. Perfect company, great guide, wonderful hosts, perfect Cretan day. You cannot go wrong here.
