Crete, Greece’s largest island is known for its truly wonderful scenery and a fascinating destination for a cultural and historical tour, offering a wealth of sites that reflect its ancient Minoan culture dating back some 4,500 years. This ancient history is a prominent focus of our tour but Crete has seen numerous invaders in its long and turbulent history so we will also discover some more recent historic periods, particularly the Byzantine and Venetian eras, which led to two of the islands most beautiful towns, Chania in the west and our base the charming town of Rethymnon on the north coast.

To book your place or for more information, please contact the Visits Secretary, Joanna Finlay
