Overview of your Heraklion tour:

Embark on a journey through Crete's storied past and natural wonders. From the ancient marvels of Knossos Palace, birthplace of European civilization, to the tranquil beauty of traditional villages like Krasi, every stop offers a glimpse into the island's rich heritage. Delight your senses with the aroma of olives at a traditional olive oil factory, and marvel at the majestic Diktaean Cave, where Zeus, king of the gods, was said to be born. As your guide, born and raised in Crete, I'm passionate about sharing the essence of my homeland with you. From history and mythology to the flavors of Cretan cuisine, I aim to make you feel like family by the end of our journey. Join me for an unforgettable exploration of Crete's treasures, where every moment is a cherished memory in the making.
