What to expect

Your private day-trip will start with a visit to the must-see archaeological landmark of Crete Knossos Palace (King Minos/Minoa Palace), where you will receive all the informative highlights with highly personalized attention.

Then you will enjoy an authentic journey to mountainous East Crete (Dikti mountains). Your private local guide will customize bespoke itineraries by visiting ancient Cretan villages, connecting with locals and their unique lifestyle. Furthermore, you will make a stop for coffee under an ancient plane tree at the traditional village of Krasi.

You will continue your journey deeper into the heart of the ancient fertile Lassithi Plateau. At the entrance path to the Cave of Zeus (Diktaean Cave), you will have the opportunity to reach the Cave on donkeys! On the way back, you will visit a family-owned traditional ceramic workshop and a Byzantine monastery, renowned for its beautiful frescoes and unique “miraculous” icon, where you will experience deeply the history of Byzantine Christianity.

Last but not least, take the best recommendations by your local insider guide for a delicious traditional lunch in the mountains, and let your personal chauffeur take you to an authentic Cretan tavern, which will be away from mass tourism and big crowd buses (not included in the price.)
