Greentour

Tailor-made walks and holidays discovering the real Crete. Experienced guides revealing the cultural heritage and rich natural environment of Crete – Byzantine churches, orchids and flowers, and birds. Small group tours and walks organized for all.

All of our walks are individual and show you the best of the local Cretan environment together with its cultural heritage. Walk through amazing gorges with dramatic cliffs or walk to the peak of a mountain with stunning views, visit Byzantine churches or taste the local Cretan raki. We offer you a wide range of choice so you can choose the degree of difficulty that suits you best. Many walks are easy and suitable for those with little experience, or more demanding such as a walk to the peak of the highest Cretan mountain, Mount Psiloritis. We look forward to meeting you and showing you the hidden Crete.

25/07/2018 A bird-watching day with Paul
"...a fascinating day out filled with great scenery and great birding. The highlight was the Griffon Vulture colony- excellent views from virtually level with the nest."
Thank you Paul!

"Eleni and her team (Greentour) are doing something so very special and unique in their tours; they involve local people and respect their contributions to the culture and the reputation Crete has for its hospitality and generosity."

Thank you Jane!

"The highlight might just have been the food they provided...Delicious! I feel like I booked an orchid/wildflower tour and got a local gastronomy tour as an added bonus."

Thank you Sean for the nice review!

25/03/2018 Orchid searching with Sean

"I wanted more than to be just shown a field of flowers. I wanted to find specific ones, see lots of variety and spend my own amount of time taking photos. I could not have done any better than Greentour, they were perfect!"

10/04/2018 A day for fossils, birds and flowers

"The company have a genuine concern for ecology of the region and support for rural culture, We met the shepherd, witnessed feeding the sheep - and heard about age old traditions of the mountains, clearly something they want to work with in harmony."

Thank you Alexis for this nice review!

06/06/2018 Platania gorge and Amari valley
"In the morning, we hiked in Platania Gorge... We continued exploring in the afternoon and got to see two still-flourishing 2000-year old olive trees, a 5th-century chapel (with frescoes dating to the 14th century) that the villagers still use, and Arkadi Monastery, which was well worth a short visit.
For me and my husband, it was the perfect combination of hiking and culture"

Wandering in the narrow streets of the scenic hamlet of Margarites!

According to Jennifer Moody, one of the authors of the well-known book 'The Making Of The Cretan Landscape', "Crete is unusually rich in ancient and historic trees, trees over 800 years old'.

The oldest one of those is the olive tree, the Cretan tree of life.

In our tour 'The Unknown Paradise Of The Amari Valley', one can admire and come in contact with such trees, symbols of resilience and wisdom through time.

Crossing Samaria gorge is certainly a 'one of a lifetime' experience, one that a nature and wildlife lover should not miss in Crete. The experience becomes even more exciting when you can enjoy the gorge in total tranquility and solitude, in the company of experienced guides that can make you understand how this magnificent ecosystem works.

In the barren slopes mt. Ida, tiny alpine flowers show up out of nowhere, painting with bright colors the otherwise grey rocky landscapes of the mountain. Most of them are native to Crete, found nowhere else in the world.

"I laugh, warm with the feeling of welcome that I have been lucky to re-experience - after almost forty years - in this most generous and hospitable of places. Eleni and her team are trying to do something very special - challenging and very authentic: tourism where you really connect with locals and see the world through their eyes..."

From the article 'Three Days with the shepherds on Crete' written by the writer (and now a beloved friend!) Jane Turner Goldsmith.

You can read the whole story of Jane's adventures on mt. Psiloritis in the following link: http://janeturnergoldsmith.blogspot.com/

"On a clear day from the summit of this sacred (to the Cretans) peak - thousands of pilgrims make the ascent each August - you can see all the furthest points of Crete: north, south, east and west..."

Taken from the article 'Three Days with the Shepherds on Crete' written by our friend author Jane Turner Goldsmith and based on our 3-day tour on mt. Psiloritis. Thank you Jane!
