Rural and Bygone Family Experience in West of Crete

Delve into Cretan culture with our Unknown side of Crete: Rural and Bygone Crete Family Experience. Suitable for families with children of all ages, this private tour is a great way to see parts of the island few other tourists know exists. We will explore traditional Cretan villages, historic sites, medieval towns, and olive groves. We will sample locally made produce, bake our own bread, and visit an abandoned monastery. We can also take a hike through a gorge if you wish! The day is yours to enjoy…

Leaving from either Chania or Rethymnon, we drive through the scenic countryside to a small village hidden in the hills. Here, we can enjoy a coffee at a locally important house, and listen to the owner recount tales of life in the 19th century. The kids will be fascinated at how life used to be!

Once we leave here, our next destination is the Monastery of Arkadi. It has a beautiful setting, and there are many legends attached to it. After a tour inside, we head out into rural Crete once more. After reaching a picturesque mountain village, you are invited to join in a hands-on cooking lesson. Roll up your sleeves, and prepare the organic bread you will bake in a wood-fire oven!

As the bread bakes, your guide will take you out to explore the surrounding area. Stops will include an 11th century Byzantine church, an abandoned monastery, and nature itself. Here, you can learn about some of the local plants and herbs used in food and medicine. Just as everyone become hungry, the bus will take everyone back to the farm where the bread will be ready, along with a delicious meal.

After eating, a gentle stroll is in order, in one of the most scenic gorges in Crete. The peaceful green scenery and waters are a relaxing end to the day, especially when accompanied by Cretan sweets! Finally, it is time to board the bus and head back. The family tour offering a unique cultural experience in Crete may be over, but the memories will stay forever!
