Great experience learning how to make 3 different types of Cretan bread, and the recipes to take away afterwards. It wasn't as completely hands on as I would have liked, but I still managed to try kneading the breads too, and had some tasty food to eat afterwards, so enjoyable overall! I finished my day with a Greek coffee, cheese and olive oil in the coffee shop with my fresh baked bread. The trip also included history of Crete and how people used to live, including the museum. Not being a fan of museums I wasn't excited to do this part, but actually I really enjoyed learning about how people used to live only a few decades ago, really interesting. Would recommend this experience.
If you want a real immersive experience into Cretan culture, look no further! Loved listening to this women speak of their history and the symbolism surrounding symbols and traditions. The entire experience was like going back in time. Truly transportive! Fabulous bread and hands-on bread activity, and fantastically learned people who make you feel like a long lost relation coming home instead "just another tourist." This is a must-go for anyone in the area! And don't forget to hang out in the coffee shop with the locals!
Very nice walking tour in Heraklion. We did several stops at interesting or beautiful places. The food was delicious and there was plenty of wine and raki. Our guide Papatya was great. Very talkative and full of interesting facts and stories. Definitely recomend if you want to learn a bit of Heraklion.
This was a great way to get a wonderful feel and taste for the wine, olive oil and food in Crete. Our tour guide, Pierre, was so knowledgeable of the wine, the food and the history. Everyone involved worked together to make sure we had a great time. Would definitely recommend to others.
Eva was amazing and the choices were exactly the local options we were hoping to experience. The food was great, the history tour and discussion informative and the stroll through historic streets sublime. I would absolutely recommend it if you are in Heraklion.
