Well planned tour! Gave us great insight into the history and traditions of local foods. Our guide Nikitas was exceptional. He is knowledgeable with a great sense of humor and incredible relationships with local food vendors. The trip was well planned covering many locations without rushing us. We did not have plans following the tour so Nikitas spent extra time with us in the Food Market. We completed 3 Context tours in a 4 day stay. Each one was exceptional.
What a fantastic food tour Nikitas designed for us today! Not only did we walk through local food markets, and herb shops, tasting items of interest from vendors, we also stopped three times to sit and eat authentic dishes that were absolutely delicious. Nikitas taught us about the seasonal favorites, beloved combinations of food and spices, and even some important ideas on how local people and families value their meals together. After the tour, my husband and I put his teaching to work — selecting a restaurant at dinner that served many of the dishes he had shown us. We are so grateful for his time and thoughtfulness and for another memorable Context Tour.
You did everything right. This was a beautiful tour, and our host, Nikitas, was the best tour guide I’ve ever had. I would recommend this in a heartbeat. There’s nothing you need to improve.
