Culture, tradition and legends of Crete...If you would like to experience the real Crete, then this trip is for you. In the capable hands of our expert Tour Guide, Crete’s magnificent heartland and people, craftsmen and traditional rural life will be brought alive for you. The first stop on our tour is a local pottery, in Anopolis where you can watch and learn the skills of a local potter. Crete has a tradition of pot making which dates to Minoan times. The master potter will be happy to demonstrate his art and you will be given a guided tour of the workshops.  You may also try your hand at making your own work of art. Once again you will benefit from buying from the source, as he runs a ceramic shop where you may purchase from a wide variety of ceramics, urns and souvenirs. Later, we continue through the most beautiful countryside. This is wine country and these vineyards have been producing wine for many centuries. Here we have the opportunity for some wine tasting, and you will be given an informative tour.  At the winery you will have the chance to do your wine shopping, so your holiday will stay alive long after you’ve returned home. Get your wine at excellent value for money. Our next short stop will be at Vathypetro area, where you will have the opportunity to take pictures of the beautiful and wild nature and see from afar, a Minoan Farmhouse. Part of your discovery of the Unknown side of Crete is enjoying a traditional lunch. Locally produced food and wine is prepared for you in a family run tavern in the beautiful village of Archanes, where you will taste local specialties, soak up the atmosphere and in time-honored tradition, complete your meal with homemade Raki – it helps your digestion! Also, after your lunch, you will have the time to enjoy your coffee under the shadow of plane trees in the beautiful square of the Archanes. If you really want to get to know Crete, don’t miss this wonderful trip.
