When you think of an adventure to Greece, I an imagine what probably comes to mind: ancient ruins, greek salads, feta cheese, sparkling seas and dazzling beaches. At least something like that, right? The place that has all of these is CRETE, home to some of the most enduring Greek legends, as well as some of the best modern Greece has to offer. The island of Crete is the largest in Greece, and it has a truly magical atmosphere all its own. During our 8 day adventure we will explore some of Crete's hidden corners, taste the best of its cuisine and bask in its magical Mediterranean light.
NOTE: Given the continuously changing nature of the Coronavirus, as of October, 2021, we are now requiring all participants on our tours to be vaccinated. This is to protect not only the other tour participants but also the locals at the destinations to which we are traveling.
Today we will meet at the Heraklion Airport and travel as a group to our villa, https://villamantilari.gr, an approximate 20 minute drive south of the airport, which will serve as our home base for the next 8 days. Once here, you will have a chance to unpack and explore the villa and all it has to offer before dinner. After dinner we will spend some time getting to know one another before heading off to bed.
