The tour’s first stop is an organic herb farm. Start by learning about the precious herbs of the island by a professional agronomist. Harvest mountain tea and botanicals to make your own tea blend!
A short walk away is the picture-perfect entry point to Samaria Gorge, take in the stunning panoramic views and snap some photos.
After identifying aromas and tastes of herbs it is time to discover their influence in the wine. The next stop is the famous Manousakis winery to enjoy a wine and lunch pairing in their lush gardens. The produce is farm to table and the winery makes some of Crete's more famous wines from indigenous and international grapes organically grown in the Manousakis vineyards.
Crete day tours are a great way to explore the island with mixed activities.
