As a licensed travel planner/travel agent creating awarded tours is my passion which led me to create my own bespoke company which is trusted by the New York Times and Lonely Planet! Apart from owning my own vineyard & farm, I have been passionate about everything around Cretan food culture and its connection to the island of Crete from a young age.
I run this experience in the diverse countryside of Crete with my local team as we love showing the best of our land away from tourist traps.
Together, we’ll explore traditional villages, admire epic sceneries, discover the Cretan culture and pamper you by trying the best "slow food", wine and raki in the region. This is a family-friendly experience and an introduction to a "slower" and healthier way of living based on our local traditions and customs.

This was a fab experience in areas of Crete you would normally visit. Each step was a joy for all the senses. The food and wine were so good. And Giannis, our tour guide was brilliant. Got to know Crete a little better.
