Zeus Cave-Traditional-Villages-Old Wind Mills-Olive Oil Factory-Small Group.

This is my favorite tour in Crete because you get to see the real Crete, away from tourist areas, the old traditional villages, visit an olive oil factory where we learn all about olive oil ( CRETAN GOLDEN LIQUID) , visit Zeus Cave where the king of all the Greek gods was born. ( HE IS NOT THERE THOUGH …). Driving through the old villages on the Lasithi plateau you feel that you are traveling back in time, like time stopped long ago.
After all the exploring it’s time to enjoy lunch at a family restaurant up on the mountain where you get to taste the Real Cretan food .

We can pick you up from Heraklion - Malia - Sisi - Hersonisos - Gouves - Analipsi .
We don’t pick up from Rethimnon- Elounda- Ag Nikolaous unless it’s more than 6 people or you book the private option not the shared one .
Unfortunately we don’t pick up from Chania , Sitia and Ierapetra area .
