I can only recommend this experience to everyone! Good food, good wine, great views, nice conversations. An all-round beautiful afternoon / evening. The guide led the tour with a lot of commitment and ensured a pleasant atmosphere right from the start. It was a very special experience that I would never want to miss again.

Personal, warm and unique

We were picked up by a minibus and picked up by a German speaking guide. We found it very nice to be a guest at Jorgos and his wife's home and to get to know the Cretan cuisine better. We met new people and felt very comfortable. It was a whole new experience, away from all mass tourism - beautiful and highly recommended !!

We really enjoyed this tour. It’s a long day and you have to wait while the food cooks so there is some filler time of a small tour of the host’s home. Overall the people were amazing and the food was very yummy. It is just a long time with all of the waiting but still very enjoyable.
