Matala & South Crete Escape with Local Food & Wine - Private Tour from Chania

Crete is an island destination that never fails to remind us of what we love about the Greek island culture. It’s an irresistible combination of al-fresco tavernas, breathtaking archaeological sites, bright blue waters, and unspoiled authentic Cretan lifestyle. Enjoy an authentic day trip with a premium chauffeured vehicle at your full-day disposal and maximum comfort like a true VIP. Visiting Matala and its ancient Roman caves in the afternoon is the best timing to experience a memorable melting sunset scenery and a relaxed guided walk in the authentic village of Matala, which is known for its unique style and freshly caught delicious seafood. Your private local insider guide will enrich your private tour by following South-Central Crete itineraries off-the-beaten-track. You will also explore traditional villages, the ancient Homeric town of Gortyna, Phaistos Minoan Palace, a mountainous Byzantine Monastery, and a local winery. In addition, you will enjoy an authentic Cretan lunch!
