Reviews

  • Communication with Dimitra was excellent and they can cater the tour for food allergies, preferences or perceived "intolerances".The sommelier was very engaging and guided us through 9 wines and accompanying food such as sea bass and octopus. It really showcased the amazing wines of Crete including 2 dessert wines.
