South Crete Tour

On a bespoke tour to southern Crete, find yourself in a sacred cave that produces holy water for pilgrims. Journey to the storied city of Gortyna, and allow your personal guide to introduce you to the island’s archeological heritage. 

Spend time with passionate winemakers at local wineries and sample the exquisite taste of old-vine wines. Then make your way towards a Byzantine monastery famous for its 15th-century frescoes.

Wrap up your day at the Matala beach, and marvel at the bizarre caves holed in the gigantic headland. Here you can interact with the locals at the nearby village, before tucking in to some of the region’s freshest seafood.
