A Recent Review of this tour

We had a fabulous tour with Anna focused around food and wine. She took us to a an olive oil factory, a vineyard, and a walk around Heraklion so we could see how the locals live with a stops for an espresso and local desserts at a famous place, then on to a fabulous delicatessen where they were waiting for us with loads of Cretan treats from cheeses to wines. Anna was beyond knowledgeable, a joy to spend the day with. I highly recommend Anna especially if you are a foodie! Perfect day!!
