The excursion begins with collecting the group of all explorers from their pick up points in the morning. The bus tour will then be heading towards west Crete for a guided tour to the cosmopolitan town of Rethymno.
Rethymno, is the third biggest town in Crete west of Heraklion on the north coast of Crete. Here monuments of the archaeological, Ottoman and Venetian eras co-exist. A stroll in the alleys of the old town, a visit at the Turkish minarets and the Venetian fortresses, or a coffee at the magnificent harbor are some of what you can do while you visit.
The bus tour will then be heading to Chania, considered by many as the "little Venice" of Crete.
Chania is the second largest town of Crete on the north coast west of Rethymno. The city of Chania is divided in the Old City, with the gorgeous harbor and the New City, beyond its Venetian fortifications. The Old City is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean and is called “Venice of the East”. You can find Turkish minarets and mosques, Muslim neighborhoods, Venetian fortresses, dockyards, fountains, squares, arches, mansions, and the lighthouse. Visit the famous Agora (market), which houses traditional little shops and taverns. Here you can buy souvenirs or leather goods for very good prices.
The bus trip will then make its way to Kournas lake.
