Misleading description
Delores_K
, Jul 2022
The Average rating was given because the information given about the cooking class was misleading. We thought we would be going to an 'actual' village, not a modern reconstruction of one. The cooking class itself was fine, but the false circumstances in which we took it spoiled the experience for us.

Great class and...

Great class and communication on pick up / drop off etc. Is in a recreated Greek Village/ living museum hotel which is a bit bizarre.

Cretian history and cooking event
Kim_S

Originally the event was for a small party, we messaged the company and they easily accommodated our party of 11. We have food allergies-no problem! The tour of the little village was interesting and informative about Crete historical life. The creating/cooking of appetizer, main dish and dessert was fun, engaging and delicious! Best part was our guide and instructor, Evie. She was so kind and patient with us and danced a bit too! A great time.
