We will spend our lunch time here and you will enjoy Cretan cuisine and local wine.
Topolia Gorge: The wild scenery of Topolia gorge is worth seeing. Admire and take plenty of photos of wild landscape nature.
Spilia: In our next stop we visit the “Saint John the Hermit” cave to enjoy the breathtaking view from the natural belvedere.
During the guided safari tour you will be informed about life in Cretan villages, olives pick, olive oil production, Cretan wines, honey production, distillation of "raki" - "tsikoudia", and Cretan cuisine, culture, history and tradition.
