Detailed description

Guided tour with tastings in Heraklion: experience the city like a local

Already in ancient times Heraklion, at that time still called Kastro, was a melting pot of various cultures and a large trading centre. Grown under the many influences, the metropolis on Crete is a unique specimen in which a guided sightseeing tour is worthwhile. Heraklion offers a colourful mixture of different interesting stories, from which your English speaking, professional guide selects the most beautiful ones and brings them closer to you. Meanwhile, he accompanies you through winding alleys and sun-drenched promenades.

The guided sightseeing tour in Heraklion on Crete starts at 9 am on Eleftherias Square and shortly after the welcome the tasting tour starts with a freshly brewed coffee. Through typical neighborhoods in Heraklion you will go together to the market where you can taste many local delicacies: Rusks, olives, cheese and soft drinks are just a few examples. Have short conversations with the shopkeepers and stroll through the picturesque streets away from the main tourist routes.

The sightseeing tour in Heraklion shows Crete from its historical side when you enter the Venetian fortress wall, the longest preserved ancient wall in Europe. From the mighty archways you have an incomparable view over the whole city and the impressive separation of old town and newer districts. You will also pass the tomb and monument of Nikos Kazantzakis. After the march over the pedestrian street "25 August" with the cathedral St. Titus and the Morosini fountain the approx. 4-hour tour for maximally 12 persons ends in a butcher tavern with a butcher plate and Raki or Tsikoudia.

Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

Die Tour kann man leider nur auf Englisch machen. Wir haben es gewagt und haben es nicht bereut.
