As a licensed travel planner/travel agent creating awarded tours is my passion which led me to create my own bespoke company which is trusted by the New York Times and Lonely Planet! I was born on Crete and after running mainstream food tours in Crete and Athens for many years, I understood that many travelers wanted to taste more than the typical tourist dishes. My food experts team, Kiki and Aspasia and I created this tour to let you experience the best and most exclusive culinary spots in Rethymnon. We have taken plenty of food & cooking seminars and dunked deep into the history and traditions of the Cretan cuisine, but after all, no seminar and no research taught us as much as our Greek γιαγιά (grandma's) who are still our favorite chefs in the world. This is much more than a food & wine tour, this is a trip to "authentic Crete"!
Greek food: Meze platter (local tapas). pastries, traditional sweets and locally produced ice cream
Greek coffee, wine/spirit tasting, locally brewed beer
