Wonderful Guide, wonderful moment. Thank you very much. And above, all done also in French. Which made it easier for our young children. You will especially visit a little shop dedicated to olive Oil and other wonderful local products.

I had a geeat time, walking in a small group from one delicious secret food spot to the next. While our local and friendly guide gave us some great backgroud information, we got to try the typical basics and menus of greek food.

A great experience with many stations where there were delicious things to try. The quality was excellent and there was always exciting information about the preparation, the history and the origin of the ingredients.

Our guide, Max, was well informed, enthusiastic about his subject and very friendly and helpful. The food and drink was good too!
