Overview
An exclusive chauffeur-driven private tour that combines all the “must-see” world-famous landmarks of Crete Island – the iconic Knossos Palace, the mysterious Cave of Zeus and an authentic journey to the mountainous East Crete (Lassithi Plateau). You will enjoy a personal pick-up and drop-off by your private local insider guide, with a premium vehicle at full-day disposal by experiencing maximum comfort, and maximum privacy like a true VIP. You will also receive skip-the-line accesses in all archaeological areas, key pieces of information, extra-personalized attention and engagement with the Cretan local lifestyle. Last but not least, you will visit off-the-beaten-path eateries to taste traditional local delicacies and get the best recommendations for an authentic Cretan lunch!
