Your Eye Travel guide let you discover with a minibus the Cretan way of life. The first stop is at an olive oil factory where we are welcomed by the owner. He guides us through the factory and teach us all about the olive oil process.
After the olive oil factory, we continue up the mountains to a small and authentic Cretan mountain village. Your Eye Travel guide gives you a tour through the streets of the real, daily Cretan life.
After this, it's time to teach the secrets of a Cretan kitchen with fresh and local ingredients and herbs from his own garden. And we take you on a small tour of the village.
The cooking lessons are very important; what you make, you will eat, so be sure not to burn your food! This authentic day will be held at a picturesque restaurant with a spectacular view. You are then free to enjoy your lunch, after which, we head back to your hotel.
