This is the best activity we did in Greece. Sophia, our teacher, was phenomenal! The cooking was divided amongst the group, so depending on skill level, you could easily do what was needed to make the food. And the food! It was SO good. We also had the pleasure of trying a few wines with a sommelier, and he really knew his wines. They were some of the best we had tasted, and not just in Greece but anywhere. Between Sophia's charm and excellent teaching, the delicious food, and the incredible wine, this was one of the best activities hands down.

Our chef Stamios (I’m not sure if this is how you to spell it) was extremely personable, helpful and friendly. We made a lot of different foods and it was all really tasty! We had enough for breakfast the next day!

It was an amazing experience! The staff were friendly and included everyone in the cooking experience! Love the meat/fish market! The food we cooked was amazing! I highly recommend them!!

Fabulous experience - From the market visit to our charismatic teacher Vasia to the digestive and fun lesson to the delicious food, this was the highlight of our trip.

Sofia's class was delightfully energetic, approachable and educational. Bring an appetite!
