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 !!

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.

We really enjoyed this experience. It was in a beautiful setting with a very knowledgeable guide who was very passionate. Ioannis definitely knows a lot and you could ask him many questions about Crete, not just about food.

This was one of the best tours I have ever done! From the gorgeous ride up the mountain, to the scenic mountain views, to sharing a delicious meal the entire group helped create. Everyone should do this tour!

Fantastic tour, our guide was very knowledgeable, the cooking was great fun and wine tasting a bonus. The whole family loved it.
