Went for Cretan Mountain tours as it seemed to have everything we wanted to do in one day. It was very authentic and this was as much a cultural tour as Cretan history lesson. We had cheese, olive oil and wine tasting along with a gorgeous Cretan lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and the guide and would highly recommend them.
