Amazing tour & lovely host

Food Odyssey: A Historical Culinary Walking Tour of Chania
A perfect mix of history, culture, and food
We had a wonderful historic food tour with Mariana. She is the perfect tour guide, so knowledgeable and interesting. We liked the combination of a walking tour, meandering the streets and learning about Greek culture, traditions, and food history. And we loved the food stops - more food than we could eat! Exploring on our own now is so much more interesting, now that we know the background on some traditional food. And we loved Mariana - she a fascinating guide, answered so many questions we had, and so many more. Her passion for Greek food history is catching, we were all immersed in the stories and facts of history. And of course, the food was all amazing! Thank you Mariana for a fabulous tour!

Unforgettable experiences!
Mariana is a wonderful teacher and guide. We are 5 friends and we took the ancient Greek cooking lesson and the the historical culinary tour of Chania.
We made and ate hellenistic food cooked over a log fire in the beautiful garden with the olive trees and we baked bread in a replica of an ancient oven.
As for her wonderful walking tour, I cannot praise her enough. It is an absolute must even if it is not your first visit to the city.

Excellent!! Wonderful experience!
Mariana presented, upon our arrival, an array of Ancient Greek herbs and spices, dried grains and fruits. She served Cretian mountain tea as she showed us us how to cook flatbread, myttotos, lentils, myma, artolaganon and plakous. Cooking with fire and stones or clay ovens, we could imagine what life could have been like thousands of years ago. This was the highlight of my holiday in Chania, Crete. Highly recommended!

Wild greens and greek doughs
Mariana is an extremely knowledgeable food historian. Her classes are fascinating, this is the second class I've taken of hers and I would recommend travelling to Crete purely to meet her if you're interested in the history of Greek cuisine. We got to sit under her olive trees and she cooked a variety of dishes for us all over fire. A very special day and very different from an average cooking class.

Learned a lot, ate a lot!
Mariana was a wonderful teacher and guide. I learned a lot about about Greek and Cretan culinary history while we strolled around historic Chania talking and tasting flavorful delights. I highly recommend this tour for any foodie who wants to learn more about the history of food preparation and how different spices were introduced into the lical culture.

Cooking adventure
Mariana offers an insightful view of Greek civilization through food using replicas of ancient cooking pots and ovens and recreating ancient cooking methods. The food was delicious!!!! And what a beautiful place for a cooking class - a very old olive grove! The historical cheese making and bread baking class is the best cooking class I have ever taken!

Wonderful Experience!
My husband and I were amazed at Mariana’s knowledge in food archeology and in the ancient cooking methods she demonstrated. Her warm hospitality, knowledge and the incredible meal she prepared and served made it a wonderful afternoon. Hands down one of the best meals we had in Chania during our five day visit. A truly delightful experience!

Excellent Tour
We did this tour with Mariana recently. She was good company, attentive and very informative both about the food and history of Crete. She also provided us with very helpful tips about where to buy good quality local foods and restaurant recommendations both during and after our tour.
