We thoroughly enjoyed this experience during our 3 day stay on Naxos! Extremely fun, and a great way to get immersed in the culture! Host is super kind, and you can tell how much passion she has for teaching, and her guests! The family welcomed our group in like we belonged! It was a wonderful time! The food was delicious at the end, and we enjoyed the little hike as well, and dancing! Highly recommend!

An amazing, authentic experience that I cannot recommend enough! Anna and her family truly make you feel like family. From picking fresh produce out on the farm, to learning Greek dances and shattering plates, this is an amazing activity for groups small or large! We were stuffed from how much food we prepared and the family prepared for us (not to mention, the wine!).

David and Nick were the best possible guides for showing us the beautiful coast, sea caves, hidden beach and more around Apollonas. They were so nice and easy to get along with, we felt like we were kayaking with friends all day! Lunch afterwards at the local taverna was excellent too.

Great experience with great people. The wine flows freely, so best to book a ride.

Enjoyed chopping, chatting, dancing and a hike by the river.
