1. Rhodes: Cooking Lesson and Wine Tasting with Lunch

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 was the best tour I've done in Rhodes! You will be met by the guide in the morning and she will take you to the location. During the trip to the location, she also tells you a bit of history about everything you drive past and indicates where you can do fun activities. Once you arrive at the location, you will do all kinds of fun activities. Cooking, tasting wine, drinking Greek coffee etc. I really liked the choral part even though I wasn't very good at it. It was always shown by a cook how to make the dish and we had to imitate that. Then you will eat what you have made + dishes that the cook has made. I also really enjoyed the wine tasting. You also get things to eat & afterwards you can choose to buy something else. You can simply pin! Finally, the guide was really great!! Super nice and knew a lot about the island.

We were able to spend a very instructive and wonderful day in Apollona. Aside from tourism, we were able to taste numerous local sweets and delicious wines. The highlight of the tour was the cooking class. Here we tried, with professional support, traditional dishes that were then served for lunch. Finally we got an insight into the past of the island in a historical museum. A big thank you also goes to our guide Maria, who guided us through the day with lots of information. The tour is an absolute must if you are not only interested in sun and sea but also in the country, which has a lot more to offer. Definitive recommendation for this tour.

This was such an amazing experience. the town of Apollona is so beautiful. The wine was amazing and the food that we prepared was fantastic. I left with a full stomach. Our guides were amazing with information about Greece along the way

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!

We had a great tour which was well organised and fun. Lovely walk through the village from the bakery to thw wine tasting and then onto the restaurant for the cooking lesson and lunch.
