Personalized tour of rural Chania, including olive oil, wine tasting and custom dinner prepared by locals.
Dec 2019 • Couples
I can't recommend this experience enough! My husband and I reached out to Rebecca for a customized tour of Chania including a tour of an olive oil press and local winery as well as wanting to learn how to cook traditional Cretan dishes (and hopefully eating them, too). All I can say is that she delivered 110% in organizing exactly what we asked for and more. She welcomed us into her parents' home in a rural town(population 3) in Chania where we met her parents and husband, watched her father tend to his sheep, and learned about her mother's childhood growing up in a WWII-influenced Crete. Thanks to our tremendous tour guide, John Flaneur, we learned all about Chania. He also taught us how to make dolmas and a Cretan dessert. If you have the ability to take a tour with John, do it! He is so knowledgeable and loves what he does! All in all, this part of our trip is something that we will always remember. As my husband said after the tour, "that's the best experience I've ever had on a vacation."
