We run a succesful beerhouse in Rethymno and a Touristic office for more than 5 yeas now. We both are passionate about our work and allthough we have studied and travelled in Europe, finally we have returned to our origins.

Really nice food tour around the old town of Rethymno. Dina was the perfect guide, she even helped keep our 2 year old entertained.

I had an amazing time with Hara, the guide of the tour. She is funny, smart and kind, and taught me the basics of Cretan Foods. I am especially grateful since Pantelis organised a personal tour for myself since I couldn't join the general tour. He was extremely accommodating. I loved tasting so many delicacies and meeting Yiorgos Hatziparaskos, the last phyllo master of Rethymno, his wife, son, and grandson. Beautiful people!

Our tour guide was Alia. She was wonderful, friendly and made us feel special. We walked in areas of the town that would have been difficult to find without her guidance. She taught us about the culture, let us experience the pace of life, we ate delicious food, and shared stories with each other. Our time together was special, and my family appreciated her greatly. I highly recommend this experience.

Our host for the day was Hera, she was warm and friendly. Her tour of the city was exceptional and her knowledge was more than we expected. She seemed to have a pure enthusiasm for her city and its people. When we met people she knew in the city she introduced us as if we were friends which in turn had them engaging with us in a open manner. The food was delicious and the company delightful. Along with interesting bits of history and advice about Rethymnon and its people. She took us to a park shops and tavernas that were tucked away little gems, that we would not have found on our own. I highly recommend that you book a tour and request Hera. She was spectacular.
