Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Kourtaliotiko Gorge, Koxare to Asamotas Road, Plakias, Crete 740 60 Greece

While heading South we will first stop in Spili, beautiful Cretan village, immersed in greenery due to the abundance of fresh water. Guests can visit and enjoy a Venetian fountain from 25 sources of spring water in the main square. In this village you can enjoy a delectable Greek coffee while engaging with the friendly locals.

Then we continue our route along the most beautiful Kourtalioti gorge. We recommended to walk on foot the stone path to the mountain river Kourtaliotis, which flows into the Libyan Sea on the south coast. You can visit the church of St. Nicholas of Kourtalioti near the small waterfalls.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: The Holy Monastery of Preveli, Preveli, Rethymnon, Crete 74060 Greece

Perched in high mountains on the south coast of the island resides the imposing monastery of Preveli. In its walls you will discover a magnificent Orthodox shrine - the miraculous silver cross, decorated with gold and precious stones and be enchanted by the views over the Libyan sea.

You may also go down by stairs to Preveli beach and virgin Palm Forest for a walk or to swim.

Depending on your preferences we can spend in this location up to 3 hours.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Rethymnon Old Town, Rethymnon, Crete Greece

On the way back, we visit the spiritual and scientific center of Crete, the city of Rethymnon. The charming appearance of the city is determined by narrow streets, where the houses of the Venetian period are distinguished by richly decorated facades, elegant window arches and stone carvings. You may have a lunch in the old harbor with the view to the famous lighthouse.

I booked two private tours and enjoyed them very much! I saw places which I wouldn't have seen otherwise. The guide and the driver were very friendly and helpful. I learnt a lot about the island.
