If you are looking for a genuine cultural experience that the whole family will enjoy, this tour should be your first choice. We will take you for a drive through the Cretan countryside, where you will visit traditional villages in Crete, each one with its own personality and uniqueness. You will also be invited into a Cretan home for lunch, where you can enjoy homemade food, and learn about the local culture, customs, and history.
This four hour tour gives a taste of Cretan rural life, and is a fun family-friendly activity suitable for people of all ages. It passes through a number of villages, which include Vatos, Spili, and Lambini where you can take a glimpse at all parts of Cretan culture, from the coffee shops to the local schools, from the churches to distilleries.
Food plays an important role in Cretan culture, and so it also plays a central role in this tour. You will begin by learning how to bake your own bread, an activity the kids are sure to love! You will also have the option of tasting local products such as honey, olives, and raki. The final part of the day is also centred around food, in the form of a delicious homemade lunch. You can enjoy this in a local’s home, where you will be warmly welcomed as only a Cretan can.
This family experience gives a unique insight into life in Crete, and is a tour that adults and kids alike will remember for a long time to come.
