Personal, warm and unique

We were picked up by a minibus and picked up by a German speaking guide. We found it very nice to be a guest at Jorgos and his wife's home and to get to know the Cretan cuisine better. We met new people and felt very comfortable. It was a whole new experience, away from all mass tourism - beautiful and highly recommended !!

We really enjoyed this tour. It’s a long day and you have to wait while the food cooks so there is some filler time of a small tour of the host’s home. Overall the people were amazing and the food was very yummy. It is just a long time with all of the waiting but still very enjoyable.

Diese Erfahrung kann ich jedem nur empfehlen! Gutes Essen, guter Wein, eine tolle Aussicht, nette Gespräche. Ein rundum schöner Nachmittag/Abend. Der Guide hat die Tour mit sehr viel Engagement geleitet und direkt von Anfang an für eine angenehme Atmosphäre gesorgt. Es war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis, das ich nie wieder missen möchte.
