Local Life: Eye Travel minibus tour

Your Eye Travel guide let you discover with a minibus the Cretan way of life. The first stop is at an olive oil factory where we are welcomed by the owner. He guides us through the factory and teach us all about the olive oil process.
After the olive oil factory, we continue up the mountains to a small and authentic Cretan mountain village. Your Eye Travel guide gives you a tour through the streets of the real, daily Cretan life.
After this, it's time to teach the secrets of a Cretan kitchen with fresh and local ingredients and herbs from his own garden.
The cooking lessons are very important; what you make, you will eat, so be sure not to burn your food! This authentic day will be held at a picturesque restaurant with a spectacular view. You are then free to enjoy your lunch, after which, we head back to your hotel.

Brilliant day

We had great service from the moment we met Roger in the Eye Travel office! Top man, friendly informative and great fun. We left 8.30 on the day of the trip and Roger was our guide. We went to see a local olive factory and then on a scenic drive to a tiny village. The village was so beautiful! We went up the mountain in the back of a pick up so wear shorts or trousers as it’s a bit of a challenge to get in the back, but fun! Local man George took us to see his many goats and the noise of the bells as they ran to meet him was lovely! Cookery lessons in George’s authentic kitchen followed and we then ate the meal we all made with local wine and Raki. Roger was friendly, informative and fun! It was a small group of six so you soon get to know each other. It was a great day if you want to meet real Cretan people and experience a slice of their lives. Full marks Eye Travel!

Local life, wine tour and Spinalonga

We used eye travel for 3 tours. All were fantastic, the guides Sophie for the wine tour and Spinalonga and Jessica for local life were knowledgeable, good drivers and good company. The vehicles were comfortable with aircon.
Our favourite day was the local life... I would recommend all of the tours though as Crete is auch a beautiful island. We will be back. Thank you
