Kalimera Yiannis, This was indeed a very nice experience. We enjoyed our time at the Boutari Winery. We cannot think of any things that should be improved, it exceeded our expectations. Those were very nice people and like I said, we enjoyed our time very much. We also told our friends about this.Kind regards,

Kalimera Yiannis. The cooking class was wonderful. We were treated warmly and with much hospitality. Maria welcomed us into her kitchen and was very accommodating in modifying her recipes to make sure we had gluten free delicacies. Georgia was very helpful in translating for us and in providing us with information concerning the winery and the wine production and Boutari.

Hi! We had a wonderful time! It was our favorite thing we did in Greece. Our tour was great. Everything was beyond our expectations. There was nothing we can suggest to make it better. Thank you so much for creating a lasting memory for us!

We enjoyed both tours you scheduled for us. Our guide in the walking food tour was excellent. We loved the cooking lesson at the winery. The people were gracious and it was a very good experience.
