Description

Spend a day discovering some of the best Greek produce—its high-quality olive oil and the famous Cretan wine. Learn traditional processes that have survived until the present day, see olive mills, and indulge in a delicious traditional lunch at a favorite local tavern.

Your day begins with a visit to a local olive mill, where you hear about its function and see how olives are processed and transformed into consumable olive oil. See more of the history and tradition behind the trade at an exhibition and see the history that dates back to the first Greeks who started pressing olives 5,000 years ago.

Don't miss the chance for a photo at Crete's renowned ancient olive tree, which could be more than 3,000 years old. It is then time to visit one of the finest wineries in Crete, where you learn about each wine as you taste their different flavors. A sommelier explains the characteristics of different types of wine, the type of grapes used, and the influence of climate in producing the scrumptious taste.

Step inside a local tavern and indulge in a lunch of rich Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine, and hospitality. Next, move toward Deliana, cross its remarkable gorge, and see its picturesque creek nestled among lush vegetation.

Visit the cavernous chapel of Agia Paraskevi before continuing to a 16th-century Cretan house, where you can find out all about the history and production of Cretan knives.
