Private Cultural Full day tours

We believe that the most authentic way to experience and understand the heritage of Greek Culture/ Religion/ Nutrition / History/ Way of life  and its People, is in the company of a local scholar, walking through streets which
are
alive with religion, art and history, immersing in the architecture, learning about the life, traditions, and customs
of 
Greek people, past and present.
You will sample some of the finest meals as well as fruit and vegetables in the world.


You will drink selected spirits (ouzo – tsipouro – raki) and wines that will elevate your spirit and help you relax,
and 
relish the excellent traditional cooking in some of the less obvious restaurants that we will point you out.


We can promise you we will not be part of any tourist trail or the “sheep following” mentality.
Our aim has always been to offer quality not quantity
We are in this business because we love our land and its culture.


Our work consists of sharing our passion and knowledge with others.

Our guests!!!

Thank you for your time
