Rhodes for Foodies: Meet the Locals Food Experience

Get a taste of local life! Take a journey through the culture and flavours of Rhodes on our Rhodes for Foodies: Meet the Locals food experience.

Greece is paradise for food lovers. But Greek food also plays an integral role in local culture and daily life. So one of the best ways to really get to know the country is by exploring its culinary heritage. The strategic position of our island, Rhodes, has led to a variety of invaders and colonisers throughout its history, all of which have left a unique and delicious legacy in Rhodian food.

Rhodes Experience invites you on a culinary journey through Rhodes, as we introduce you to local food producers and share the secrets of our delicious cuisine. Our Rhodes for Foodies: Meet the Locals food experience is led by an English-speaking guide (who just happens to also be a passionate foodie). Together you’ll eat your way around the island, while learning the tastes, stories and background of our cuisine.

The tour includes a visit to a village home in Salakos, where you’ll learn how to make giaprakia, the famous stuffed vine leaves of Rhodes, before tasting these and other delicacies in the garden.

You’ll visit the Bee Museum and neighbouring Melissokomiki to discover the importance of Greek honey and enjoy a tasting, and stop in a traditional village kafeneion for ouzo and meze, followed by Greek coffee and dessert.

Make sure you leave room for lunch though, as we have a treat in store! You’ll dine in one of the island’s best restaurants, Paragka in the village of Apollona, famed for its authentic food and fantastic Greek hospitality.

Our Rhodes for Foodies: Meet the Locals food experience last for approximately six to seven hours, and runs on a private basis for up to ten people. Don’t eat too much breakfast though – you’ll want to save room for all this delicious food!

Rhodes - The Jewish Aspect We were a small group of four on this private tour with Nikos. He's a terrific guide and an archeologist as well. Nikos is very knowledgeable about the history of Rhodes and its Jewish community. We learned about the impact of the Shoah on the community and visited the synagogue and saw where the community had lived. We also visited the Grand Master's Palace which is an eclectic rebuilt palace with amazing artifacts brought there from neighboring islands.I highly recommend this tour and Nikos.Matty MonheitRaanana, Israel

You must use them when in Rhodes! We were a private group of 18. Daffy of MBC/Rhodes Experience was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and flexible as he designed a tour that met our group's unique needs. He then provide us with a great driver (Yannis) and an absolutely fantastic tour guide (Sifi). Sifi got to know our group's needs and, with great flexibility and expertise, adapted the planned itinerary to meet our needs. She has tremendous knowledge of Rhodes, its history and culture and imparted that knowledge to us in a clear and entertaining manner.

Fantastic experience We arrived on a cruise and were limited in time. Rhodes experience arranged a minibus for our group with an experienced driver (Giannis) and possibly the best tour guide (Sifi) I have ever been guided by. She adjusted to our requests and made sure we saw the highlights of Rhodes. She had a constant smile, great sense of humor and extremely knowledgeable of the area. She constantly provided new and interesting information during the entire tour. I wish we could have have spent more time with her.

A definite must We were so impressed with the knowledge and charming personality of our guide. She was accommodating and fun to be with and had many great suggestions for us. We highly recommend this tour which we adapted to our own interests and they were always so accommodating
Amazing - don’t miss this place! Friendly, knowledgable and amazing surroundings. If you’re in Rhodes this is a place to try, not only are the wines great but you need to try the cocktails! The only thing that would make this experience better would be an option for food however not a deal breaker as the place is surrounded by many restaurants.

You have to try it! Wow! We dis not know what to expect, but the visit was so nice. The place was like a hidden pearl, and the workers where very friendly. Our «wine-guide» let us taste wine we never would find any other places and told us about all the family secrets for each product. He also recomended wine-yards to wisit all around Greece (for next years holliday!)😍 You may think, why wine-tasting in Greece? Well, they have their own way of making wine that can not compare to Italian/french og Spanish wines. As people of «true red wine lovers», we ended up beeing true white wine lovers from Greece. Thank you guys so much for opening up a whole new world for us!
