You will also participate in a delicious wine tasting as you learn first-hand the traditions and customs of this beautiful country.

Your walking tour will allow you to view up close and personal this scenic port where old buildings, museums, churches and shops are all built close to the panoramic harbor.

Beautiful Harbor city
January 27, 2020
The guide stated the tour at a coffee cafe over looking the bay - fantastic views. Then off to the wine tasting before visiting the old city on our own. It was very interesting. We finished with a 4 course meal at a local restaurant which was out of this world. Didn't need dinner that night. The guide was great and it was a wonderful tour.

I recommend this tour. The driver was punctual and courteous and made every attempt to make the tour pleasurable. The wine lecture and tasting was one of the best I have attended. The Greek lunch was more of a dinner than a tasting. Excellent food and service. We ended the day with coffee at a sea coffee house Thanks

It was our favorite tour on our vacation. Nasos was so informative and chose a great restaurant for our lunch. The wine tasting was a great treat as well. Don't miss this tour.

Nasos is an excellent tour guide. This was a relaxing and informative tour. First stop at the hilltop restaurant provided a spectacular view and wonderful refreshments. However, in the tour details it outlines we will go to a dozen places - we went to three. The write up should be changed to reflect this fact. Food was great. Crete was great. Nasos was great.
