Spring 2015 Herbs and Cooking Tours

Wild Crete Travel

Cooking with

Wild Mediterranean Herbs

May 4 to 9, 2014

Patricia Kyritsi Howell joins celebrated Greek chef and author, Aglaia Kremezi, for a five day cooking class on the Greek island of Kea. 

Inspired by our love of Crete, our tours offer you an authentic experience of life on this magical island that will enliven your senses and inspire you long after you return home.

Through hands-on activities such as cooking traditional dishes and foraging for wild foods, personal interactions with the people you'll meet, and a relaxed pace that allows you to sink into the landscape, our guests experience Crete in a way that few visitors ever do.

And we now offer tours on other Greek islands, see below for more!
