Cretan Olive Oil and Wine Tasting Jeep Safari with Lunch

With a maximum of 6 guests per guide, this exciting Chania Jeep tour will show you the best Crete has to offer. The fun begins as you hop into a Jeep for an off-road adventure through the picturesque landscape of Crete, Greece's largest island known for its varied terrain, which ranges from fine-sand beaches at Elafonisi to the White Mountains.

Head to Anoskeli's local winery and olive mill where you will enjoy a professionally guided tour of the facilities and learn how they produce olive oil. While here, enjoy some extra virgin olive oil with oregano and lemon juice on warm, freshly baked bread. Over in the wine section of the facilities you will discover their wine making processes and sample the results as well as a taste of a local alcohol named tsikoudia, or raki.

During the nature walk at the Deliana-Mesavlia gorge you can take photos with local mountain goats, watch as vultures soar gracefully in the air and soak in breathtaking panoramic views. The gorge is characterized by the dense vegetation around its creek and in spring is at its peak and the water flows in abundance. Near Mesavlia you will meet the cavernous chapel of Agia Paraskevi, where a feast takes place each year. The locals have a funny dispute whether the gorge is called Deliana or Mesavlia, which is depicted even in the signs of the area.

From there you will ride to the charming village of Ano Vouves to see the world's oldest living olive tree, still producing its precious liquid some 3,000 years later. Tour the small museum and learn the challenges involved in ancient olive oil production before your return ride back to port.

Your delicious lunch will consist of a traditional Cretan flavor with Cretan salad, wine and dessert.

Book this small group full-day tour today and get ready for a fun taste of the authentic Crete.

5 StarsThe BEST excursion EVER!! July 03, 2019

Reviewer: Christina Tregoning
We would be more than glad to talk to anyone who wants to hear us rave about it. We were so lucky to have G as our guide. He knew the island so well and that jeep was able to get us to places no other vehicle would have been able to go. His English was great too. The lunch experience is one we are still sharing along with the wine and olive oil factory. Thank you all to those that had anything to do with this tour. It was truly a blessing!!

Strongly recommend if you want to get away from the masses of tourists and see the interior of Crete. Excellent food and amazing scenery.

5 StarsBest excursion we've even taken in Europe!June 14, 2019

Reviewer: Christina Tregoning
This experience is the one that we have come home to talk about over and over. The guide in our jeep was so very knowledgeable. We saw CRETE, every aspect about it. He spoke beautiful English and knows all about his country of origin. The wine tasting/olive oil factory tour was awesome and tasty. The authentic Greek restaurant above the gorge, with sights to remember forever, could not be beat. All the food comes from the farm of the restaurants owners. We found it to be the BEST value of any excursion, appreciated the pace, and professionalism of it all. You are crazy not to take this tour. We feel like we found the diamond in the rough!

5 StarsThe must see—best Greek food you’ll ever eat June 04, 2019

Reviewer: Megan and Kathy
Following our departure from Santorini I wasn’t quite sure anything could come remarkably close to the breathtaking landscapes and the delicious cuisine. However, this tour of the beautiful, lush Cretan countryside does it, and well. From the world’s oldest olive tree, to the unmatched olive oil tasting, this tour and our guide Nasos gave us a world class experience. The restaurant food at Elas Thea was phenomenal and very traditionally Greek—not to mention the views from the restaurant. This tour is very relaxing, not a lot of walking and not a lot of other tourists/tourist attractions. There is a few long car rides with amazing scenery where you can stop and take pictures and appreciate the cultivation of the plentiful olive trees!! Thank you Nasos!
