Visit Phaistos, Arkadi and Rethymnon


Starting from the south ( south part of Prefecture of Heraklion – Messara plain – Sivas – Pitsidia – Kalamaki – Kamilari – Moires – Matala etc), this tour transfer is all about exploring and driving through an interesting part of Crete . We will start with the palace of Phaistos, early in the morning to avoid the heat  and after a guided tour with a professional licensed guide , we will continue towards Amari valley. On the way we will enjoy the breathtaking view of the Cretan mountains and enjoy the impressive landscape and of course we will stop for pictures on the ways but also for a coffee in one of the traditional villages along the way. The Amari valley is a must. We will continue after our short coffee stop, towards Arkadi monastery, to enjoy a guided tour of the historical monastery that looks like a  fortress. After our guided tour, we will continue and have lunch in a traditional taverna and then we will end up at Rethymnon, where we will drop you off at your accommodation.  This tour is ideal for guests that wish to avoid driving through the mountainous part of central Crete, wish to enjoy the landscape and take pictures , but also enjoy an interesting guided tour of different periods of the island of Crete , starting with the Minoan ( Phaistos) , traditional life and villages – local way of life and agriculture , monastic life and Venetian – Ottoman period.
