Private Tour: Sunset in Zorbas Land with Wine and Food Tastings

Channel the life-affirming spirit of Zorba the Greek as we explore the unique nature of the Akrotiri peninsula. Breathtaking views and pretty monasteries abound as we get off the beaten track and discover the real Cretan countryside. An organic wine and olive oil tasting in a magical monastery is followed by a trip to Zorba’s beach to watch the sunset, glass of raki in hand. The simple pleasures in life don’t get better than this; Zorba would be proud!
