We had the most lovely day with Marina and Louisa. The transport van was spotless and the experience was really enjoyable. To close the day we received a very helpfully list of suggestions of where to eat and a lovely and thoughtful little gift. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to feel part of the community, gather some knowledge about cheese and wine or just want to have a lovely day out in the mountains.

Our halloumi-making day was fantastic. Our guide, Liza, was friendly and knowledgeable and Mrs Sofia's halloumi class was an experience you couldn't get anywhere else. She and her husband are such characters. The highlight of our holiday.
