My husband and I booked the private cooking class and village tour during our honeymoon in Crete. It was easy to book and the experience was well worth it! The tour guide was incredibly sweet, knowledgeable and fun to spend the evening with. We toured the villages folklore museum and participated in a cooking class where we made a variety of Cretan appetizers, main dishes and a dessert. Between the cooking class, we snacked on wine, bread, olive oil, olives, etc. This was one of our favorite activities during our Greek vacation!
