Zeus Cave-Traditional – Villages – Old Wind Mills – Olive Oil Factory | Small group tour

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.

  1. This is an engaging itinerary for me to see more on Crete scenery and traditions .
    The olive oil factory is an unique learning experience .
    Most importantly , Eddie is a knowledgeable and fun person . The real experience on walnuts , almond , strawberry , apple , banana tasting are fascinating . Fruits are tasteful , all freshly picked up at the farm to eat . Really nice 👍.
    I highly recommend this Zeus Cave traditional old wind mills village olive oil factory tour✨✨✨✨✨

  2. Eddie gave an amazing tour! He showed us the ins and outs of the “non-touristy” Crete. He was personable and had a great sense of humour. Eddie loves what he does and it shows! My 82 year old mom was well taken Care of!
