Excellent tour, only comment we can make is that perhaps too traditional for a Norwegian, lots of food, happy people and nice planned though
Its not only the food that made this a great choice, its the scenery, the stories, the laughs of the organizers and need to say that although I was geared up for some boring day , it turned out a hit ! Thanks !!
Much more than the cooking fellas, its the rural authentic Crete that makes the trip worth it, glad we did !
Highly recommend, four star instead of five only because of a small mix up on the pick up location point, other than that a day very well spent, the food and the mainland scenery really worth the money and the time, might do it next year too...
