Join this food and wine tour of Heraklion that will treat your taste buds to authentic Cretan dishes and local wines! During your three-hour walk, you are introduced to the best food that Heraklion has to offer. The Cretan cuisine is one of the healthiest and tastiest diets in the world, and the base of the Mediterranean diet, and you’ll find out how Crete’s culture, history, and geography have all helped to create the region’s unique cuisine. On this Crete food tour, you take a stroll through Heraklion’s local neighborhoods as they share with you your passion for food and discuss local culinary traditions.

The Cretan diet is recognized by the international scientific community as the most characteristic and high-quality version of the so-called Mediterranean pattern of eating.

The Cretan cuisine, one of the oldest and most palatable culinary traditions in the world, with its variety of delicious and aromatic delights, is correctly considered one of the healthiest going. The richness and the quality of the island’s products down the centuries have produced a cuisine with a unique flavour – fresh and unadulterated. Nature in Crete contains all this diversity of the necessary raw ingredients as well as the human know-how to create unique tastes which are tied to the seasons’ cycle and the natural environment of the island.
