Your private day trip will begin with a visit to the Crete Knossos Palace (King Minos/Minoa Palace). Your private local guide will customize bespoke itineraries, visiting ancient Cretan villages, connecting with the locals and their unique lifestyles. You will also have a coffee break under an old plane tree in the traditional village of Krasi.

You will continue your journey deep into the heart of the ancient fertile Lassithi Plateau. On the way to the entrance to the Cave of Zeus (Diktaean Cave), you will have the opportunity to reach the cave on donkeys! On the way back, you will visit a traditional family ceramic workshop and a Byzantine monastery, famous for its beautiful frescoes and the unique “miracle” icon, where you will experience the history of Byzantine Christianity deeply.

Finally, get your local guide's best recommendations for a delicious traditional lunch in the mountains.
