Pickup included
Send your preferred meeting point and location by 3:00 pm the day before the tour. If you don't, pick-up is not guaranteed. Meeting points can be hotels anywhere on the island, the old port or the new port. The information necessary is either the hotel name or the name of the cruise ship you are arriving with. For any other accommodation, send a google map location to the local supplier, or let them know the name of a nearby hotel. Any delay on behalf of the client (your ride will only wait up to 15 minutes) affects the transfer schedule and disrupts the smooth conduct of the tour/activity. For nameless accommodations, apartments, houses, or villas, the company will set the most convenient location for the pickup or may apply an extra cost.

This was the highlight of our trip to Mykonos. We felt right at home, ate incredible food, learned all about the history of the island / culture, and drank delicious wine. I’d recommend this to anyone I know — from families to couples to friends. The best home cooked meal I’ve ever had!

The instructor was very nice and open. The location was very nicely decorated and we learned a lot about the island and Greek cuisine. The food was great. However, we were only able to cook a little ourselves and the transport was about 30 minutes too late (a lot of traffic). Despite these minus points, we are happy to recommend the cooking course and would do it again.

My niece and I enjoyed the cooking class at Mykonian Spiti. First, we ran into an issue with the address. So many do not have addresses. Our host provided us with coordinates, which we have used several times over the course of our stay without problem, but we were asked to meet at a location. The class is held in a private residence. Beautiful home, set up very well for entertaining. There were probably twenty of us there. It was all hands on and pretty soon we were chatting amongst ourselves as we prepared the food. We prepared several dishes, each person being given tasks. The instructions were clear. In the end we were invited to sit down and enjoy the meal we prepared as we shared conversation with other attendees. I am looking forward to making the dishes. Star deducted because we were suppose to go to the farm. There was miscommunication and we missed that part. When I followed up I was offered for someone to pick us up. I declined since it was the end of the day.
