Overview
Crete produces some excellent wine, but many mountain wineries are remote and hard-to-reach without a rental car. This small-group tour from Heraklion makes it easy to enjoy a day of wine and olive oil tasting, with a driver and guide to handle the roads and arrange a private tasting session just for the tour group at a local boutique winery. Sample more than different varietals while learning about the island’s terroir, then round out your palate with a traditional “meze” lunch at a village restaurant.

The guide was very laid back and accommodating. I admittedly don't know much about wine, but he was very patient and answered all my questions. This is a great tour even if you are just getting your feet wet with all things wine.
