Overview
Explore 3 amazing locations in a single day! A hidden herb garden with stunning views, a major natural attraction for a photo opp moment and explore a famous winery, which includes lunch, wine pairing and wine tasting. The tour’s first stop is an organic herb farm. Start by learning about the precious herbs of the land by a professional agronomist. Harvest mountain tea and botanicals to make your own tea blend! A short walk away is the picture-perfect entry point to Samaria Gorge, Take in the stunning panoramic views and snap some photos. After identifying aromas and tastes of herbs it is time to discover their influence in the wine. The next stop is the famous Manousakis winery to enjoy a wine and lunch pairing in their lush gardens. The produce is farm to table and the winery makes some of Crete's more famous wines from indigenous and international grapes organically grown in the Manousakis vineyards.

We had such a great time experiencing Crete and Chania through Herbs and Grapes. It was the great outdoor experience that we were looking for to feel like we really saw Crete. Our host Helena was just wonderful, professional and full of life and passion.
