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!
