What you can expect
With a maximum of 6 guests per guide, this exciting Chania Jeep tour will show you the best Crete has to offer. The fun begins as you hop into a Jeep for an off-road adventure through the picturesque landscape of Crete, Greece's largest island known for its varied terrain, which ranges from fine-sand beaches at Elafonisi to the White Mountains.
Head to Anoskeli's local winery and olive mill where you will enjoy a professionally guided tour of the facilities and learn how they produce olive oil. While here, enjoy some extra virgin olive oil with oregano and lemon juice on warm, freshly baked bread. Over in the wine section of the facilities you will discover their wine making processes and sample the results as well as a taste of a local alcohol named tsikoudia, or raki.
Enjoy the Deliana-Mesavlia gorge view from above, take photos with local mountain goats, watch as vultures soar gracefully in the air and soak in breathtaking panoramic views. The gorge is characterized by the dense vegetation around its creek and in spring is at its peak and the water flows in abundance. To the middle of gorge there is the cavernous chapel of Agia Paraskevi, where a feast takes place each year. The locals have a funny dispute whether the gorge is called Deliana or Mesavlia, which is depicted even in the signs of the area.
From there you will ride to the charming village of Ano Vouves to see the world's oldest living olive tree, still producing its precious liquid some 3,000 years later. Tour the small museum and learn the challenges involved in ancient olive oil production before your return ride back to port.
Your delicious lunch will consist of a traditional Cretan flavor with Cretan salad, wine and dessert.
