Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $99 USD / Adult
Experience Cretan culture, flavors, and history on this adventure to two Cretan villages. Go ashore by tender and join your coach for a day in Crete. Step back in time at the traditional village of Gavalochori. Enjoy the village’s interesting and well-preserved folk architecture. Afterward, make your way to the fishing village of Georgioupolis, traveling along the coastal highway with beautiful views of the Bay of Almiros. Pass through a lush landscape with views of the mountains. In Georgioupolis, stroll the village’s pretty town square and visit Agios Nikolaos church, a white church located on a pier. Continue to Syrtaki Taverna where you’ll enjoy a scrumptious Cretan cheese pie and sip a special alcohol beverage called raki. Explore this charming hidden gem before heading west to Chania Town. Take your tender back to the ship, or, if time permits, wander the streets of Chania Town on your own. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
