It will be a 7-8 hours tour close to nature in an altitude up to 1400m (4600ft) and you will be informed about the Cretan History, Culture and Tradition. Heading to Therisso village you will enjoy the Therisso gorge's landscape and at Therisso village you will taste mountain tea, honey, the famous Cretan cheese named "graviera" and local olives named "tsakistes". At Manousakis winery the Sommeliers and Grape producers, as more professional in their sector, will serve you 5 wine and explain about the wine production in Crete thousand years now.

Amazing!
Oct 2020
It was an amazing and very interesting tour. Nasos is a wonderful guide, his stories were full of facts, and he made sure that we were having a good time. Our journey began with a story about Chania, then we had an amazing opportunity to walk in the gorge and after that Nasos took us to a tavern where we drank mountain tea and ate local cheese with honey. Then we went to the shepherd's hut and learned all about his life. The old man shepherd is an amazing and very kind person. The road itself to the top of the mountain and back was with very beautiful views. On the way back we had a very tasty lunch and visited a beautiful lake. Would highly recommend this tour.

Sep 2020 • Friends
We've booked this jeep safari tour to the white mountain to visit the shepherd's hut. Our skilled tour guide, Nasos, has been amazing. He drove us safely up into the white mountains through the narrow gravel roads. We got to see how shepherds live up in the mountains and know how cheese production takes place. We visited the village of Theriso where we had drinks and traditional local bites. After that we continued our journey and got to see other parts. We ended the tour with traditional lunch in a village restaurant. This tour has not only been a unique experience. It has also been entertaining and very informative. We gained knowledge about the history and daily life in Chania and we've been kept involved and entertained through a friendly quiz.
Thank you Nasos for this amazing experience. You'll not be easily forgotten.

We had a great day with Nasos, I was with my 9 and 20 years old daughters, he has been really kind and caring with us, it was a pleasure learning so many things from Creta Island, from history, culture, tradition, and visit those amazing mountains with goats and sheep, in middle of gorge, met a very nice shepherd in his traditional stone house, and taste cheese, honey and meet in an amazing tavern. Thanks again Nasos for this amazing experience in this gorgeous island. We will of course remember you every time we eat honey ☺️😊

Beautiful environment and a great guide.
Nov 2019
A great and interesting trip which we highly recommend. Nasos, our guide, was very friendly and authentic and this was overall a great experience.
We are four 25 y/o friends. Nasos is professional and the tour seems to be well thought out with the customer in first place; for example he was flexible with the tour and took us to a café he thought we would like. Privacy was respected, he dropped us off for some time so we got to walk until he picked us up 10 minutes later, and also gives you privacy to eat alone.
Beautiful environment and a super friendly guide with a lot of knowledge about the greek culture and Chania. Highly recommend :)

Another 5 Star Review
There’s a reason Nasos’ company, Chania Adventures, has all 5 star reviews- quality. Nasos cares a great deal that you not only have a first class tour, but that you have a day to remember. He loves his home of Crete and wants to share that with his guests. We had such an outstanding time on The Shepherd’s Hut Tour, that we then booked The Milia Mountain Retreat with Olive Oil and Wine Tasting Tour and again had the best time. Don’t miss out on a truly unique experience, book a tour (or two) with Nasos and then write your own 5 star review.

Amazing tour of the mountains and villages
Jun 2019 • Couples
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour up into the mountains with our guide Nasos. The Theriso gorge and Theriso village were beautiful and the views up so high in the mountains breathtaking. It was fascinating to meet the shepherds and to sit in their remote stone huts and share a drink with them.

Throughout the tour our guide Nasos shared his knowledge of the history of the area, how the unique local cheese is made and even the inner workings of the beehives that produce the beautiful honey in the region.

A unique adventure with Nasos!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Nasos is the best guide you could ask for. For a whole day we were in Nasos' very capable hands and didn't have to think about a thing as he took us from experience to experience. If you want to disconnect and get off the beaten path, this is the tour for you. After treating us to mountain tea and traditional Cretan cheese, Nasos took us into the mountains to see the metato. He is so knowledgeable and passionate so it is a pleasure to listen to him. He told us about the shepherds, Cretan cheese, olives, bees and Greek history. We came away from the tour feeling like we had experienced something unique and had learned more about the landscape that makes Greek food so delicious. This is a true learning experience and a bit of an adventure at the same time. It's a wonderful opportunity to get to know Crete a bit better. Nasos is very well organized, knowledgeable, safety conscious and determined to have his guests have a wonderful experience. He really goes abobe and beyond. Spend the day with Nasos!
