You can walk through the village, get to know some of the local people, study their daily habits and enjoy the local cuisine. In the evening you'll get to taste and the home-made Cretan wine and local products, all the while watching authentic folk dancers in traditional costumes show their skills accompanied by the lyre, the lute and the bouzouki. You'll enjoy dances from different parts of Crete as well as from mainland Greece and, if you want, you can try to learn a few steps yourself!
