7 Day Flavors of the Aegean: Greek Culinary Experience
The ancient Greeks are rightly celebrated for their contributions to politics, science, and the arts, but they were pioneers in another important arena, too: the kitchen. Over the centuries, Greek cuisine has evolved into one of the world's favorite flavors, blending foreign influences with classics rooted in local staples: fresh vegetables, seafood, olives, and liberal helpings of feta. You can learn a lot about a culture through its cooking. Come along on this gastronomic adventure and discover a place that's as pleasing to the palate as it is easy on the eyes.

It begins in Athens, the modern and ancient Greek capital, with a private tour of the city's modern landmarks and historic sites, including the Propylaea and Pantheon atop the Acropolis and the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games. Later, you'll gain insight into the intricacies of Greek cooking on a private walking tour through the streets and markets of Athens en route to the bustling Central Market, a local hub for meat, fish, and produce, followed by a tour of the Monastiraki flea market in the old city. Next, travel to the island of Mykonos where, after strolling the gorgeous seafront and pausing to snap a picture of the snow-white Paraportiani Church, sit down for a traditional Greek meze - small servings of olives, feta, and various dips - in Alefkandra before sampling some of the local wines. Sate your curiosity and your appetite later at a working farm, where you'll gain perspective about where your favorite dishes come from before sampling them yourself at a participator Hellenic barbecue. From there, it's on to Santorini for an insightful tour of the island's wineries and a delicious three-course meal at a lovely local restaurant.

Please note: This tour is only available from May through October.
