Explore Cretan Life and Cookery

Tour Overview

A unique guided tour with wonderful scenery as well as a real insight into traditional Cretan life and an opportunity to try your hand at Cretan cookery. It begins with a visit to a typical village house where a Cretan welcome awaits you with tales of Cretan past, present and tradition. You will have the opportunity to pick the local produce from the garden to use in your cookery lesson. Whilst you wait for your traditional Cretan lunch to cook there is a chance to take a small walk through pretty countryside to the local “cafenion” or you can opt out of the walk and just have a relaxing drink and enjoy the panoramic views from the “cafenion” veranda. The day ends with you enjoying your lunch in the village garden.

A true taste of Crete!
