Crete’s history goes back for more than 5,000 years, and pieces of that heritage can be found in the island’s artwork, food and products — but you have to know where to look to find the best treasures! On this Heraklion tour we will take you to shops and galleries you’d never find on your own, and connect you with the people it’d be impossible to meet without a local guide by your side. From traditional to modern designs, the surprises you’ll find will make for the ultimate shopping experience!
