Tour Reviews

Highly recommended Heraklion Wine Tasting
Highly recommended Heraklion Wine Tasting

Communication with Dimitra was excellent and they can cater the tour for food allergies, preferences or perceived "intolerances". We booked a wine tasting for the following night which was held in a converted 19 th century wine bar. The sommelier was very engaging and guided us through 9 wines and accompanying food such as sea bass and octopus. It really showcased the amazing wines of Crete including 2 dessert wines.
