Full description

Make and sample traditional Greek dishes with a local cook, delight your palate with award-winning wine from the Rhodes region, and visit the women’s agricultural cooperative to learn about their work on this interactive cultural tour.

Begin your tour in the unspoiled mountain village of Apollona, nestled on the foothills of Profitis Ilias. Stop for a quick tour of an agricultural co-op and learn how these proud, resourceful women run the enterprise. Hear about their decisions, and goals, and watch the production of a local delicacy. From there, on foot, you take a walk through the village and learn about what the locals grow and how they live.

Next, head to a winery and learn about the various local grape varieties from your guide. Savor a glass of delectable wine and understand first-hand why Rhodes produces many award-winning wines. Enjoy a cooking class from a talented local cook in the village who will share her secrets in making traditional, famous Greek food. Try making tzatziki and eggplant salad. Learn how to make dishes including dolmadakia (stuffed vine leaves), and Greek cheese pies.

Finally, conclude your time in Apollona by feasting on the exceptional lunch that you and your fellow cooks have lovingly prepared. Then, visit a traditional Kafeneion and learn how to make traditional Greek coffee and sample it.

This tour was great! Exactly as advertised and Maria was a fantastic guide. She even provided a restaurant recommendation near our BNB that was our favourite restaurant of our stay. Highly recommend!
