In the morning, we will pick you up from select spots around Chania with an air-conditioned luxurious bus and head towards our tropical destination. We will pass through Rethymno, making our way to Damnoni beach, where you will board the boat to Preveli.

One of the most famous beaches in Crete, Preveli has been a famous attraction since the 60s, when it served as a haven for the Bohemian youth of the era. It is located at the exit of the Great River, whose banks are lined with palm beach trees thus giving the beach a distinct look for the Mediterranean. Because the river flows through the Kourtaliotis gorge, it forms a small lake, before emptying into the sea, which has earned the beach the nickname of Lake Preveli. You can walk along the river, under the shade of palm and other trees, and start ascending in the beautiful canyon, or even take a swim in the cold ponds formed in the gorge. Be sure to check out the heart-shaped rock formation on the east side!

After spending plenty of time in Preveli, we will proceed to the village of Plakias, where you will have time to explore, pick up some souvenirs or grab a quick bite and sample the delightful Cretan cuisine which combines Mediterranean ingredients and Oriental spices.

On our way back, we will stop at Kourtaliotis gorge to take pictures. The gorge is an important biotope, since rare species of birds of prey live in the caves formed on its slopes. After you have taken enough shots to make even your most well-traveled friends jealous, we will hop back on the bus and return to your drop off points around Chania.

There is no better way to experience the real side of Crete, than to set foot on the island's unspoiled soil, swim in its crystal waters and stroll down its traditional villages. This family friendly tour of the Samaria Gorge and surrounding villages will give you the opportunity to do all three.

A National Park and World's Biosphere Reserve, the Samaria Gorge is a scar on the spine of Crete, but one so uniquely beautiful that you wish it never goes away. Extending 13 km long (8 miles), the ravine is home to several endemic species, with the most prominent being the goat Kri-kri, which can't be found anywhere else in the world.

Early in the morning, you will be picked up from designated spots around Chania via a luxurious bus and reach the starting point of your tour in Omalos Plateau around 7am. The panoramic view of the gorge from the plateau is a photophile's delight, so after short stop for pictures and/or breakfast, you will hop on the bus and depart for the traditional village of Sougia. It is there that you will hop on a boat and sail along the coast of Crete till you reach Agia Roumeli.

With ample time on your hands, you can start a short hike inside the gorge up until the Iron Gates, the narrowest part of the canyon, at only 4 meters (13 feet) width. Alternatively, at the beach at the end of the gorge, you can take a swim in the warm Libyan Sea and even enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch!

At around 16:30 you will meet again with the rest of your group as well as your hiking escort returning from the hike of the gorge and board the boat back to the village of Sougia, where you will start your trip back to the place where you were picked up from.

Surrounded by a wall that still stands today, it has a rough triangular shape and is rumored to house hidden pirate treasures from the previous centuries. It is well worth the 10 minutes hike it takes to get there.

You will have plenty of time to explore the island and swim in its coast before we board the boat that will take us to the Balos lagoon.

After your pick-up from your hotel, you will be guided to Monastiraki Square, an imperative stop in any tour of Athens. Home to ancient rivers, massive libraries, thousand-year-old churches and mosques, Monastiraki square is arguably a place of wonder. Crossing the square, you will find yourselves in the shadow of Acropolis and closer to the Ancient Agora of Athens (also known as the Athenian Forum), which during antiquity was unmistakably the heart of the city and birthplace of democracy. The Agora was the focus of political, commercial, administrative and social activity as well as the religious and cultural center and seat of justice. Nowadays it is one of the most important archeological sites in the city of Athens. You will not only get to see the Temple of Hephaestus, one of the most well-preserved classic temples, but you will also step in a Stoa (portico) that houses the findings of the site today. Reconstructed back in the 50s, this Stoa is one of the most fascinating buildings-museums in the capital!

Further down on Evripidou Street, you will relax at the well-known ‘Miran’ charcuterie, to taste some ‘tsipouro’ or ‘ouzo’ with pastrami, delicious sausages and smoked pork from the north or the south of Greece. The tour will conclude at around 13:00, when we will start heading towards your hotel.
