What people are saying about Naxos

Absolutely amazing tour! Natasha was the best tour guide as she was so knowledgeable and friendly!! She was so accommodating to my mother who needed a little extra help. The food was excellent and I couldn’t believe the amount we tasted. From donuts, to wine and cheese, olives and capers, to a full sit down meal that we shared. It was one of the highlights of my trip and I would recommend to anyone.

Can't say enough about Maria Daphne as our guide. Her combination of friendliness, warmth and thorough knowledge of Naxos made our food tour through the town a delight. Not only does she know about the food (and the places that serve it) but her ability to weave in history and culture made this an unforgettable experience and the highlight of our trip there.

Our guide was fabulous in sharing the history of the food such as the way cheese was made as well as the area we were walking in. She was such a pleasure to have as our guide and made the experience more meaningful.

It was wonderful, great stories and histories from Maria. Thank you!

Great value, excellent variety of locations, and history throughout.
