It made our trip! We had the best time on this tour! We were a small group of 8 people from England, Australia and Malta and thankfully we got along so well! We were picked up in convenient locations and driven to a serene house in the hills where we cooked multiple dishes, fed goats and sheep, did wine tasting with some cheese, had a tour of the family relics and learnt the history of Crete sitting on a gorgeous balcony as it was getting darker. We then all sat together outside to enjoy our meal with some more wine and a yummy dessert. It was such good value, and a fantastic experience.

A sok választható kirándulás közül, ezt mindenképp érdemes megnézni. Érdekes, látványos dotto utazás a hegyek között. Aranyos autentikus települések, kedves emberek, narancs-, citrom és olajfák, hangos kabóca 'zene' mindenütt.

Great way to meet and share a meal I love to cook & try the flavours of places I visit. As I'm travelling solo I thought this would be a great way to learn something about the food culture of the area and meet people at the same time. The hosts were so gracious and much thought went into giving the group a wonderful time, keeping things running smoothly. Andreas the driver was very knowledgable (on all subjects!) and attentive to the group - on full time translation duties, keeping everyone engaged. The group was a mix of adults, children, teens. Taking account of the mix of ages, food preferences etc the experience is more about preparing food rather than cooking as such. The food we prepared and ate together was fun to do and delicious to eat, all vegetarian, which reflects the predominant way of eating here, using mainly local seasonal, fruit and vegetables. There was also a touch of wine history & tasting, a brief history of Crete, rural cultural artefacts & feeding goats all included. I met some really nice people and had a wonderful time. Really appreciated all the effort and thought from the hosts and Andreas that went into making it all happen. A delightful way to spend an afternoon and evening. Thank you

Description

This will be an unforgettable tasting day for you and your friends exploring the mainland of Chania and discovering the non-touristic locations of Apokoronas province. In a few hours, you’ll have the chance to meet the local producers and taste the pure and authentic delicacies of Crete.

The tour will start from a local olive mill where you will observe the olive oil production and learn the secrets of the finest quality of olive oil, the extra virgin one. Analytic descriptions will make you understand everything about olive oil from harvesting to your palate—exquisite tastes and flavours. Then, leaving the olive mill, you will get in touch with “Tsikoudia” or “Raki” production, the most famous Cretan spirit, by visiting a local distillery in a traditional village. The old conventional distillery tour and the new professional one will give you an idea about “holy water’s” production, and a tasting will follow.

Through a fantastic route passing by villages of the province, you will arrive in the White mountains’ foothills. In the village of Embrosneros, you will first stop to a bakery to taste the local bread, cookies & biscuits and then to a traditional cheese factory. The secrets of “Graviera”, “Anthotiros” and “Mizithra” cheese will be revealed in front of your eyes. After explaining each cheese’s production, you will taste them combined with local honey and rusk (dry bread).

The last stop will be in a local coffee shop (“Kafeneio”), where the Cretans are also enjoying meals. Incredible flavours and traditional recipes are waiting for you in the charming square of the village of Fres. The traditional lunch will introduce you to many elements of Cretan cuisine and gastronomy. People say that taste is our best sense. After this tour, your tasting memory will be increased and full of new flavours!
