    I booked this trip for my wife for a day trip during our honeymoon in Chania. We spent six days in Ireland, then six in Chania, and this was by far our favorite day of all of them. Anna Maria was our guide for the day, and by the end of the day it felt like we had been friends

    Vasilis was a very approachable and informative host. Both the olive oil and wines were delicious and reasonably priced prompting us to buy several bottles of each. Critically, Vasilis made the wine tasting very relaxed and unintimidating, making it easy to enjoy.

    This tour is spectacular. Vasilis and Anna Maria are passionate about wine and Crete, and it shows. This is so much more than a wine and olive oil tour. We learned about the history of wine in Greece and drove all through the countryside of Crete. I felt like we saw the island

    We did the private tour with Anna who is an amazing Sommelier and a very special person. I can't say enough good things about her or the tour. From the second she picked us up, we knew we were in good hands. She told us the history of the wine industry in Crete which was very
