Rhodes: Cooking Lesson and Wine Tasting

1. Rhodes: Cooking Lesson and Wine Tasting

Immerse yourself in the culture and gastronomy of Rhodes on this all-encompassing tour. The fun begins as soon as you board a private minibus for a scenic and picturesque journey away from the island's coast to the small, unspoiled mountainous village of Apollona nestled in the foothills of Profitis Ilias. Stop for a quick tour of an agricultural co-op and learn how these proud, resourceful women run their enterprise.  From there, head to the folklore museum and discover what life was like for locals in the centuries past. Admire the traditional costumes, architecture and more as you learn how the people lived and worked as well as the industries of the time such as the inner workings of an olive factory. You will also visit a winery and learn about the various grape varieties. While here, sample a delicious glass of wine and learn how Rhodes produces some of the world's most award-winning wines. Finally, enjoy a personal cooking class from a mama cook in the village who will teach you how to make traditional, famous Greek fare including tzatziki, pitaroudia (vegetable fried balls) and the ever-popular Greek salad. Learn how to make gemista (stuffed peppers with tomatoes and rice), dolmadakia and many more delights. Conclude your time in Apollona by sitting down to enjoy the fruits of your labor over lunch.

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.
