The island of Crete is the largest of Greece's many islands and one of the Mediterranean's most interesting spots. Many different powers have ruled the island over the centuries, from the Minoans, the Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman empires and of course, the Greeks, both ancient and modern. All have left their trace on Crete's history and shaped the culture you see today.
On this tour, you can step back in time to visit ancient palaces dating back some 4,000 years. Discover the stunning scenery of the island's interior, with mountains, lush valleys and the iconic white windmills and explore bustling towns and quiet fishing ports. And of course, no visit to Greece could be complete without tasting their food - enjoy a cooking class, discover all about the island's olive oil and a chance to taste local wines and food. A week of fun, history, culture and flavours you are bound to enjoy!
