Embark on your very own intimate foodie adventure as you discover the flavors of Crete. Avoid the tourist traps and enjoy your food experience at locations that locals prefer. Walk around the bustling city of Heraklion and taste the best cream pie in town, the famous “bougatsa”. Follow your taste buds to the old market of the city and visit the best place to devour different kinds of Cretan cheese while learning all about the traditional ways of preparation.
You'll then head over to a charming small honey shop to get introduced to the art of beekeeping where you can taste two different kinds of local honey full of Cretan aromas!

Meander through small laneways around the Heraklion food market and discover traditional bakeries where you'll have time to indulge in delicious Cretan pastries, such as 'kalitsounia', and the famous Cretan biscuits, 'ladokouloura'.
Continue your culinary experience with 'loukoumades', a traditional doughnut-like dessert drenched in honey or chocolate, and traditional pie-bites.

After wandering around the beautiful city, hit a cozy restaurant by the Venetian Harbour of Heraklion, and relish local dishes, such as 'Dakos', 'Dolmadakia' and first-class seafood! Ending on a high note, traditional dessert and raki will be served!
