Wonderful, well-planned foodie walking tour. We meet conveniently in the center of town and walked to various boutique food venues to sample all included! Demetrius with Crista was our guide and he did a wonderful job in customizing the pace. ALSO, he had a great depth of knowledge around Cretan food and history. I recommend this highly!

We have become food tour junkies and Crete is our newest favorite place for interesting and tasty food. Athina, our guide on this gastronomical adventure, met us at the Lion Square and commenced our food tour with the taste of fresh bougatsa at Kirkors, a family own cafe. Athinas selection of stops for our tour had the general criteria of: local family owned businesses, uniquely Cretin foods prepared traditionally and deliciously, and servings in the style of true Cretin hospitality - meaning there was more food on the table than we could eat. Throughout the tour Athina explained the importance of fresh ingredients in all the food of Crete as well as some history of the treats and dishes we tasted. Every establishment that we entered for the tour greeted us warmly and truly made us feel special. We learned a little of about the businesses, the preparation of the different foods, and how Cretins like to eat and they do LIKE to eat.
We had interesting conversations with the cheese, honey, and herbalist vendors and learned the importance of pure and fresh ingredients this island has had organic food for thousands of years. We learned that the herbs and grasses used for food and teas are gathered fresh in the wilder areas of Crete, usually by women.
A food tour is to taste and experience new foods, however, it is the guide that creates the excitement and enjoyment of the tour and Athina is a professional in accomplishing these qualities. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge about food and Crete. We enjoyed her company and tour of Cretin foods in the center of Heraklion.
