What are you looking forward to most on your holidays in Greece? If food is one of the first things you thought of, then you’ll already know how the Mediterranean climate works its magic every time on Greek products like extra-virgin olive oil, honey, yogurt, fruit & vegetables and the freshest seafood. So this is for all self-confessed foodies out there. You’re in for a treat.
Explore the culinary traditions of Greece
Our food & drink tours and experiences explore the culinary underbelly of Greece’s two biggest cities, Athens and Thessaloniki, visiting markets and delicatessens and taking you into the best foodie neighbourhoods. And we take you around the Greek islands, showing you how the likes of Crete and Naxos are practically self-sufficient, with amazing local produce and culinary treasures everywhere you go.
We explore Rhodes (with a fascinating mix of influences), Tinos (an up-and-coming foodie star) and many other islands. On Mykonos, we take a look at the dining and nightlife scene but also show you how Greece’s famous luxury isle has another side, visiting the farms and dairies behind so many delicious local products.
The best Greek wine regions and vineyards
Greece is one of the world’s oldest wine-growing regions, something you’ll learn all about while visiting wineries that have invested money and love into creating excellent wines as well as offering vineyard tours and wine-tasting experiences.
Discovering local grape varieties and meeting winegrowers will be the highlight of any wine lover’s holiday, especially in Nemea (the Peloponnese region famous for the fruity red Agiorgitiko grape) and around Thessaloniki and Halkidiki in northern Greece. Santorini (king of the white Assyrtiko grape), Lemnos (including Limnio, thought to be the most ancient grape variety), Crete and other destinations are highlights.
Learn more about Greece’s most iconic local products
Finally, we take you to the home of some of Greece’s most famous products, going olive oil sampling and visiting olive presses in Messinia (around Kalamata in the Peloponnese) and exploring the ouzo tradition of Lesvos and the mastic villages of Chios.
Whatever your culinary passion, we’re here for you with food and drink tours and experiences all around Greece. Just make sure to pack your appetite.
