Overview

The tour starts from unspoiled mountainous village of Apollona nestled in the foothills of Profitis Ilias Mountain.

First, you will stop for a quick tour of a women agricultural co-op and learn how these proud, resourceful women run the enterprise. They will share their decisions, goals and a demonstration of local delicacy production with you.

From there, on foot, after an easy walk in the village, you will visit a local winery and learn about the various grape varietals. While here, bring a glass of delicious wine to your lips and understand first-hand why Rhodes produces some of the world’s most award-winning wines.

The highlight of the tour will be a personal cooking class from an expert local cook in the village who will share her secrets in making traditional, famous Greek fare including tzatziki, eggplant salad and ever-popular Greek salad. Learn how to make dolmadakia, Greek cheese pies and many more delights!

Finally, conclude your time in Apollona by feasting on the exceptional lunch that you and your fellow cooks have lovingly prepared.

Before you leave Apollona, you will also learn how to prepare the most traditional Greek Coffee
