I've heard a lot about food tours but I've never gone on one my self. Are there any popular or reputable ones in Crete? I would love to try out the cuisine and check out different local farms/wineries/restaurants etc.

Greek Food tasting experience near Agios Nikolaos Crete.

You will enjoy wine and food and try the variety of Greek elusive tastes. Vegetarian, vegan, mediterranean cuisine is here. Different Greek plates , ‘mezedes” and desserts at the end. Everything you need for a complete vacation is here.
We organize this Greek taste tour with Cretan products. Focusing on the great benefits of the spices and high quality materials that most visitors don't have the opportunity to learn about. Greek cooking offers an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the culmination of literally thousands of years of living,cooking, and eating. While each Greek meal is fresh and inviting, it is also a trip back through Greece's history. The names of foods, cooking methods, and basic ingredients have changed little over time. Bread, olives (and olive oil), and wine constituted the triptych of the Greek diet for many centuries, just as they do today.

To find a good food tour I would just ask around. That's what I did, and the tours we did was amazing, and there is no information online about it. They may not eve be doing it anymore...
 

What to do in Hersonissos Crete

Hersonissos is a great town that is located just outside of Heraklion, which is one of the main cities in Crete. The best place to visit is the Roman archeological remains, which have been left since the 7th century by the Roman Empire. The ruins have ancient burial grounds, baths and workshops. I also recommend visiting Lychnostatis Open Air Museum and Labyrinth Park, both are great places to take your family as well.

The beautiful traditional costumes of Crete

Crete has some of the most beautiful culture and costumes! This video outlines all of the pieces of the traditional costumes and what each part is used for. As you can see, many parts of Cretan culture are based in military lifestyle. Cretans are known as warriors and played a major role in defending Greece from both the Ottoman Empire as well as Nazi regime.

Where is the best place to have a secluded and romantic wedding in Crete?

My cousin is looking for some romantic and secluded wedding locations in Crete. I am wondering if any of you have been to weddings and cream, or gotten married there yourselves. The wedding won’t be religious, so it doesn’t need to be in any specific place like a church. I am open to any suggestions! Thanks everyone!

Where can I see live traditional Cretan dancing?

I would love to get a taste of the Cretan culture and see some traditional dancing next time that I'm in Crete. Does anyone have recommendations about where would be a good place to see live dancing? I've seen some tourist oriented places in Athens for dancing online that I am planning to visit as well. Thanks in advance! :)

Visit Mirambello Bay on your next trip to Crete

Mirambello Bay is rarely talked about and I have no idea why! This spot is absolutely perfect for swimming and lounging. It is actually one of the the biggest bays in all of Europe, and has very calm and clear water. There is an excellent tourist town nearby that is called Agios Nikolaos with many restaurants and shops that have an excellent view of the bay. Check it out next time you visit Crete!
