What you can expect?

With the untamed beauty of the Cretan landscape as your background, you will have the opportunity to visit the working farm of a local shepherd. There, you will wander around the paddock and, with the help of the shepherd, you will get to milk a goat and try to produce your own cheese. If you’ve never tasted fresh cheese before, consider one more thing ticked off your bucket list. Along with a shot of the traditional Cretan spirit of raki, it will be a delectable meze.

After the cheese-making, you will be introduced to traditional Cretan music being played live by local musical instruments as you sip a glass of luscious wine and chat with the locals.

Having worked up an appetite, you’ll be ready for the delicious dinner ahead. Try a variety of traditional, homemade Cretan dishes and first-rate local wines to get acquainted with the culinary culture of Crete

With the starry night sky above you, the soft tunes of Greek music in your ears, the company of the friendly locals and the mouthwatering delicacies before you, ‘perfect’ would be the only way you could describe your evening!

Reviews

  • It can't get more authentic Greek than that! The dinner with a local shepherd accompanied by traditional Greek music was a dream come true. The company of the locals was excellent the dishes delicious and the local activities, such as the milking of the goat, something I've never done before! All in all it was a terrific experience!
