Not a bad tour but 3 main issues... 1. Far too much focus on history and architecture for a food tour 2. Too few tastings for a food tour 3. During a pandemic, it might not be prudent for the guide to eat from the same plates as the guests

Response from EcoEventsR, Owner at Rethymno Gastronomy Tour
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Dave536, 1) The tour is held in one of the most historical cities of Crete. During the 3-4 hours walking in the narrow streets of Rethymno, of course we will focus on history and architecture as much as in gastronomy. 2) We do not really know which date you had the tour, but whichever platform you have booked this tour from, the description is very precise: -- Stop at a kafeneio for Greek Coffee and sfakiani pita -- Stop for baklava / kataifi at Chatziparaschos -- Stop for Loukoumades at the bakery of the town -- Stop for honey tasting at a local shop -- Stop for (pretty much full lunch) at a local taverna where more than 5 plates are coming to the table What I want to underline is not the quantity, but that you knew exactly what you were buying. 3) In Crete "mezes" is served at the middle of the table and all the friends / company eats together. We believe that our guides are more than friendly. If you had an issue (because of the pandemic) why didn't you just tell them? Making reviews it is easy... but making no remarks, saying that everything is ok and later on writing a bad review, does not give us the opportunity to correct anything that makes you feel bad during the tour. Next time, I would strongly advise you to just speak with our guide the moment you have an issue... you will be surprised by the flexibility and the kindness they have. They could have changed everything you didn't like on spot, and you would have had a more than 2-star experience (after all, that's why, until now, we've had only 4-5 star reviews). Best Regards,

I try to do food tours everywhere because I feel it’s a good way to get to know a culture. It ended up just being me on the tour, but Hara and I had a blast together! She was so much fun and the food stops were really good (as well as some history thrown in there). Highly
