Greek food tasting experience

10. Greek food tasting experience

I organize this Greek taste tour with Cretan products. Focusing on the great benefits of the spices and high quality materials that most visitors don't have the opportunity to learn about. Greek cooking offers an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the culmination of literally thousands of years of living,cooking, and eating. While each Greek meal is fresh and inviting, it is also a trip back through Greece's history. The names of foods, cooking methods, and basic ingredients have changed little over time. Bread, olives (and olive oil), and wine constituted the triptych of the Greek diet for many centuries, just as they do today. You will enjoy food and try the variety of Greek elusive tastes. Vegetarian, vegan, mediterranean cuisine is here. Different Greek plates , ‘mezedes” and desserts at the end. Everything you need for a complete vacation is here. You shall be captured by the place, perhaps because you think that time has stopped or because we welcome you with a shot of Tsikoudia with Cretan rusks and fresh tomato. Greek and Cretan dishes, Casseroles, Ladera, Mageirefta, Fava, Taramosalata, Fasolakia, Stuffed peppers, tomatoes, courgettes and Aubergines. The ancient Greeks understood that good health was tied to physical and social environments as well as to human behavior. They defined health as a state of dynamic equilibrium between the internal and external environment. In addition, they considered the physical and social determinants of health, they empowered individuals and communities through new democratic and participatory institutions and placed emphasis on health education and skill development.

What people are saying about Agios Nikolaos

An amazing experience! The boat ride to Spinalonga took around 40 minutes in total, but there is some beautiful views on the way. The announcements that the guide gave were very quiet on the boat, so we were a little unsure as to how long we would have on the island…turns out it was roughly an hour and a half that we got! You can definitely view the island in this time but it is quite rushed to get around the whole thing, so just take that into consideration if you can’t walk very fast or like to take everything in. The BBQ on the beach was beautiful, clear waters in the bay and the food was so fresh and tasty! Thoroughly looked after and would definitely recommend to anyone who is going to the area!!

Super fun day and great organisation. 1.5 hours to explore Spinalonga and afterwards a refreshing dip in the sea while they prepare the bbq. The beach was very busy, but we just sat on one of the rocks, which was fine. The bbq was also okay, just some clumsy food on a platter on your lap. The only downside I thought might be that you still had to buy tickets at Spinalonga. It would be nicer if these were already included in the price, so that you don't have to queue when you arrive on the island. Conclusion: the trip is really worth the money!

Great trip well organised with ample time ashore on Spinalonga. The cost of the entire trip led us not to expect too much from the barbecue but it was excellent. We now regard the trip as really great value for money. Our only criticism may be that there not many announcements on the boat in English. A bit of guessing was required.

Everything perfect starting from the day with sun and calm sea, perfect organization with the times and above all I was amazed at how they made a hundred people eat with astounding organization and excellent food quality. I highly recommend this experience.

Good views, and nice bbq. All in all a good day out.
