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 side of Crete, the monasteries, the old traditional villages,visit an olive oil factory, old wind mills, Lasithi Plateau the biggest one in Crete, Zeus Cave where the king of all the Greek gods was born. We were born and grow up in a village so we love nature and this tour gives us the opportunity to show you the old traditional villages up on the mountain with amazing views, the cave of Zeus ( we hope he will be there this time because last time we were there we couldn’t find him).. We will enjoy Cretan traditional lunch up on the mountain at a family restaurant but of course this is optional . After lunch it’s time toh it the road and get back home… probably drunk and singing…(drunk we don’t mean the driver )

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✨✨✨✨✨

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!

    yesterday we took the experience the real crete tour. Highly recommended! We have seen a lot and we have been told a lot. Also been to less touristic old villages. We had a fantastic hospitable and enthusiastic guide, Stavros. Small company. Delicious lunch, but nothing is forced on you along the way. Value for your money!
