Heraklion Shore Excursion

This Heraklion shore trip allows you to see some local culture on the island of Crete. You visit a winery in the Peza Valley and then visit Archanes which is considered one of the most picturesque villages on Crete. Its a perfect Crete tour for those not interested in antiquities.

After meeting your guide you drive to the Valley of Peza which sits between the mountain ranges of Dikti and Psiloritis. This valley is the home of the wine-making industry on the island of Crete. While you are in the valley you will stop at a local winery to enjoy a tour and wine tasting.

Next you visit Archanes which is a small village which has been lovingly restored to its original beauty. It has been voted by the European Union to the be named one of the “Best Village Restoration Efforts”. The village is nestled at the base of Yiouchta Mountain, where legend says the god Zeus was buried. While you are in the village you can relax, while experiencing the famous Cretan hospitality and enjoying a light lunch (included) in a traditional Greek taverna.

After visiting Archanes your guide will take you back to Heraklion.
