Enjoy a private experience of Greek Gin and Cretan wine while exploring the beautiful Botanical Gardens of Chania! The tour takes place in the incredible botanical garden of Chania. Nested right between the mountains, this hidden gem is a true paradise where you can discover the plants from 3 different climate zones. You will discover the secrets of the herbs and be encouraged to try and smell them with your wine guide who will use this opportunity to enrich your olfactive memory and wine tasting skills.
After a relaxing and magical wandering among the plants and trees, it’s now time for you to enjoy a quality label Cretan Cuisine meal prepared with ingredients coming from the vegetable garden as well as herbs and fruit coming from the park, paired with 3 Cretan wines in total.
