Activities in Crete

Dear Traveller,
We invite you to come with us to Greece to spend from one day to as much as you like, exploring this unique country, its ancient history, art, food, traditions, culture and people.

Our special tours

These itineraries include archaeological interest, famous sites, as well as little-known treasures. It covers art and history of the places as well as the culture and nutrition. We believe that the most authentic way to experience and understand the heritage of Greek Culture/ Nutrition / History/ Way of life and its People, is in the company of a local scholar, walking through streets which are alive with art and history, learning about the life, traditions, and customs of Greek people, past and present.

You will sample some of the finest meals as well as fruit and vegetables in the world. You will drink selected spirits (ouzo – tsipouro – raki) and wines that will elevate your spirit and help you relax, and relish the excellent traditional cooking in some of the less obvious restaurants that we will point you out. You, also, can learn dancing, icon painting, wood sculpturing, cooking or spoon sweets making vegetarian and non-vegetarian lessons. We can promise you we will not be part of any tourist trail. Our aim has always been to offer quality not quantity. We are in this business because we do love our land and its culture. Our work consists of sharing our passion and knowledge with others: Our guests!!!

Have evolved over the past ten years with no two tours being exactly the same, and all of them straying off the beaten tourist track. Although we have named each tour in a different name, it’s really the Greek people and their willingness to share a bit of their lives that makes these trips unique and special. Being under the Mediterranean sun, the Cretan and Greek flora and fauna has developed a unique character. Some of the native plant species like “sideritis_syriaca” "Cretan mountain tea” are found nowhere else; they are the Cretan Endemic Flowers. Through a shared passion for history, art, exploration, plants, we’ll meet a number of wonderful hosts and learn more about their lives. Our trip professional drivers - guides – archaeologists as well as local farmers – shepherds – cooks – chefs and other experts will share their knowledge of this rich historical – cultural and natural heritage with us.

For many people our tours are a trip of a lifetime! Others have returned again and again. Our itineraries are designed for real people sharing their interests and passions around the world. Great ancient sites, fine Local Mediterranean fresh – healthy food and wines, lots of laughter, and of course a sense of a difference are all part of traveling down under with our special tours. We hope you’ll leave the daily stresses behind and join us on one of our special tours.

We don't rush, we take our time - the timetable is our own. We like to spend time in an area - have a good look around. We are always looking for new spots, new tours. We like to get off the main highway. The tours are fully priced, no hidden surprises.

Nymphes provides the ideal surroundings to relax and relieve the stress of modern life.
