Zeus Cave - traditional villages- old wind mills up to eight people.
  • Zeus Cave - traditional villages- old wind mills up to eight people.

    This is my favorite tour in Crete because you get to see the real Crete, the monasteries, ( optional ) the old villages, Zeus Cave where the king of all the Greek gods was born. His mother gave birth there to hide from his father Kronos. We will see the old traditional windmills and the amazing views from an altitude of around 1000 m above sea level . Then it's off to Lasithi plateau, the biggest one in Crete . Driving through the old villages on the Lasithi plateau you feel that you are traveling back in time, like time stopped long ago.We can visit an olive oil factory ( optional ) where we learn about how olives are picked and how olive oil is made now and how they used to do it in the olden days .

      We went on a day trip to see Zeus Cave with Eddie and it was a fantastic, fun filled day. Eddie is extremely friendly and shared a lot of information with us about the sites we visited. We felt like we got a lot out of this trip. Also his suggestion of the restaurant for lunch was top notch as it was fresh authentic Cretan cuisine.
      We saw watermelon, apple, tomato and strawberry fields which you wouldn’t get to see with other tours. This was a very good experience for all of us! Couldn’t recommend Eddie more.

      It was a marvellous trip that I had never been through. Eddie cannot be described in few words, he needs a chapter if not a whole book!!!. The smile never leaves his face while he makes jokes; no one can but laughs from his heart. He always tries to make you in the centre of the events while he talks about the roads, trees, honey, crops, churches, hotels, restaurants, Greek mythology and the history of Crete all of that mingled with his own experience. He made us pick up cherry tomatos, apples, wallnuts, strawberries, lemons from the fields and eat them. It was a one life- time experience that I will never forget.
      Thanks Eddie.

      Eddie did a great job keeping the small group engaged and entertained. He worked hard and smart to steer us away from the usual crowd without missing out on what we are supposed to do. It’s an ideal experience for a light-weight family outing that combines a bit of history, local context with lots of walking and natural beauty. No doubt our best day in Crete!

      Eddie was by far the best tour guide I have ever had. He was well versed in his knowledge and history of the region and by far the most considerate and thoughtful guide in making our 8 hour tour so special. He made us laugh the entire time and guided us off the beaten path to really educate us about the culture and foods of Crete. He was with us every step of the way through the cave and there were a lot of steps. We were a group of 5 women from Long Island, NY who have traveled to many countries and all agree that Eddie was the highlight of our trip. Tell him The Fab 5 said hi when you book him.

      I had a fabulous time on this tour! I wanted to something that was small and intimate not on a coach with 40 other people and this tour was perfect. There were only 4 of us on this tour and Eddie only takes a maximum of 8 which would still be comfortable enough in the mini van (he has aircon). Eddie was a fabulous guide and clearly passionate about his homeland. He was energetic, funny, relaxed and made certain you were having fun. He had drinks available in the van and was always making sure you were comfortable. He answered all the questions I had with enthusiasm and showed a genuine interest in all his guests. The landscape and old villages we visited were beautiful and Zeus Cave was stunning. Lunch was a gorgeous spread of traditional Greek dishes and there was plenty of wine and raki! If you're looking for a smaller tour and want to see something other than Crete's beaches I would definitely recommend this tour with Eddie!
