... and you will discover the long-kept secrets of wine and olives and Cretan tastes as you travel through Cretan villages in a semi-private group of 6-8 persons in each vehicle.

This day safari in the secrets of the Cretan tastes and culture begins with a visit to Klados winery in Panormos. There we will be welcomed by the Owner of the winery for a wine tour and a mouthwatering wine tasting experience unraveling the secrets of high longevity in Crete.

Continuing our day we follow a route through traditional villages of Milopotamos (Dafnedes, Apladiana, Agridia) and areas with dense vegetation, fresh aromas, and unique views until we reach the historic Halepa Monastery, that used to be a refuge for Cretan rebels during civil wars.

The unique view of Psiloritis and Mylopotamos area from the monastery will inspire you to take pictures combining the highest mountain top of Crete with the beautiful valley.

Afterward, our amazing off-road route continues with panoramic views that will take your breath away. If we are lucky, we will get to marvel up close at some wild eagles and goats and take some photos. Continuing our route through picturesque villages nestled amongst lush vegetation we will have plenty of opportunities to take photos of picturesque chapels, sheep, goats, sprawling vineyards, and gorgeous olive groves.

An asphalt route will lead us to a traditional and modern olive mill in Melidoni village in Rethymnon. There you will have the chance to be guided in three different olive oil factories (ancient handmade production, with the help of diesel engines and modern production with a centrifuge) learn everything about the olives harvesting, olive oil production, and taste some local olive oil.

Working up an appetite we arrive at a small village tavern in Melidoni, where we will introduce you to the Cretan cuisine with plenty of Cretan delicacies and let you feel the very essence of the renowned Cretan hospitality.

On the way back we will follow an easy asphalt route through the national road before we reach back in Rethymnon town.

A unique wine and olive escape, an exciting adventure to embrace the renowned Greek hospitality, enjoy the sights and professional yet relaxed service!!!
