Discover the benefits of following a Mediterranean diet by participating in a traditional Cretan cooking and tasting experience, where you will enjoy the hospitality of your Greek host/hostess in their comfortable home and learn how to make a traditional island dish.

To work up a ravenous appetite, you will first tour some of the most picturesque white washed villages in the region, breathing in the mountain air as you hear about the varieties of regional flora and fauna. You will also get the opportunity to stroll round olive groves and hear about the process of growing, picking and pressing olives.

Then, its time for your hands-on cooking lesson, where you will prepare an authentic recipe using fresh local Cretan produce and fragrant herbs together with your host/hostess.

Finally, you will sit down for lunch to eat the delicious dish you have made and sample the locally produced wine and Tsikoudia, or Raki as it is known, a grape-based brandy liquor, served as a complimentary aperitif with fruits and sweets after a meal.

Please note:

  • Crete is Greece’s largest island so pay special attention to the location of the tours you choose.

We realize our trip was only as enjoyable as the many layers of details set up prior to our departure. We had many many transfers on our recent family trip to Greece and every driver was on time, friendly, professional in dress and demeanor, and proficient in English. Our local guides were knowledgeable and informative....and willing to tailor our excursions to our personal interests and time line. We could not have been happier with our hotel selections. Our Villa in Naxos was a dream come-true in every-way. Beautiful secure, well maintained Villa and surrounding grounds. The location provided privacy and proximity to activities, and restaurants with a staff (that became like family) on site-24/7. A overwhelmingly positive experience!!
