This enchanting tour takes you into the heart of rural Crete, through traditional villages and around steep mountains. Even though Crete’s ancient story is rich, the island’s modern history is worth exploring too; on this tour, visit the National Resistance Museum and brush up on the 1905 revolt that shaped modern Crete. While you explore at your own pace, your hosts slowly cook a traditional clay pot meal, offering a genial end to the day.
