This tour was absolutely AMAZING. George was extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate about Cretan history and it's wine making over the years. The wine and food was incredible and the experience was totally a highlight of our time in Greece. Worth every penny!

We had relax tasting at two of innovative local wineries. Plus wine tasting lunch at excellent local Tavern. This was a wonderful sampling across the breadth of modern Cretan wines. We got to sample completely organic wines to classic wines. We were very fortunate to have clear weather in November and the vineyards were magnificent to look at. Georgios is very knowledgeable with wine, Cretan history, and food. Ask anything and you get a detailed answer. He is patient and he allowed us to go at our own speed. Thanks to Georgios, this wine tour became a cultural experience.

We went on the Georgios wine tour near the end of September. The time went by so quickly. It was one of the best tours we have done. Everything you see in the reviews is true! So happy that we took this tour.

We cannot recommend this tour enough. Georgios was a great guide: very knowledgeable not only of the region's wines; but also of its general history. Both wineries were just lovely and we can honestly say that lunch was simply superb. This was a fabulous experience and we can say that a highlight of our trip.

I had the very great pleasure of participating in the Peza Wine Roads tour and the Heraklion Eat and Drink Walking tour run by Georgios on a recent visit to the Heraklion area, and I cannot recommend these tours highly enough. I have visited the beautiful island of Crete a number of times, and thought I knew a fair amount about the island's food, wine and history, but I learned so much from Georgios - all of it conveyed in a very interesting and engaging way, and in excellent English that would put most native speakers to shame. I loved the wines we tasted and the food, both at the lovely restaurant in Archanes and at the 'Cretan fast food' restaurant in Heraklion, was wonderful. As so many others have said, excellent value for money and the highlight of my holiday!
