After some days well spent in the sea, it’s time to explore Rhodes’ amazing villages. We will drive to Apollona village in central Rhodes.
We will first stop for a quick tour of an 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, we will visit the folklore museum and discover what life was like for locals in the centuries past. Admire the traditional costumes, architecture, and more as we take a glimpse on how the people lived and worked as well as the industries of the time such as the inner workings of an olive factory.
The highlight of the tour will be a personal cooking class from a mama cook in the village who will share her secrets in making traditional, famous Greek fare including tzatziki, eggplant salad, and world-famous Greek salad. Learn how to make dolmadakia, Greek cheese pies, and many more delights!
At the end of our lesson, we will all enjoy a homemade lunch that all of us cooks have lovingly prepared.
In the afternoon we will visit Phaethon – Rhodes Small Horses Association located in another typical Rhodian Village. We will learn about the special breed of these unique horses and help if needed the association with their daily chores.
