This is our favorite tour in Crete because you get to see the real Crete, the monasteries, the old villages, old wind mills, Lasithi Plateau the biggest one in Crete, Zeus Cave where the king of all the Greek gods was born.
I grew up in a village so I love nature and this tour gives me the opportunity to show you the old villages up on the mountain with amazing views, the cave of Zeus (I hope he will be there this time because last time I was there I couldn’t find him).
We are more than willing to customize this tour on your wishes and needs.
