What you'll do

The main idea is doing things your travel agency cannot provide. From a dinner cooked exclusively for you (Cretan dishes) to having local wine (unlimited) white or red, over music by a lyra and laouto the traditional instruments of Crete.
Dakos, Greek salad, and more in the menu and then listening the traditional Cretan and also Greek songs. So take your seat in the real Creta traditional night. Be a part of the culture and locals by listening the sounds of traditional Creta music that will have you on your feet in no time and maybe we brought you some plates to brake for enjoy. Having a time like this in a wonderful and safe enviroment is not about hosting, it is actually about making new friends!!! Also we can come on your place! If is outside of Heraklion city there is an extra cost. Let us know after the reservation!

Alex and Marina went above and beyond in their effort to provide an authentic Cretan Night. They happily accommodated our desire to not drive back across the island in the middle of the night and found us a place to stay near the venue. The food and drink were authentic and the music was fantastic. The musicians enthusiastically played and sang both traditional and contemporary Cretan music extremely well. This evening was the highlight to our trip to Crete.

This countryside experience with Alex was pretty unique. If you choose this experience, be ready to enjoy a nice traditional evening full of flowing drinks, amazing local home made food and friendly companion… but wait… there’s more: the best part of this memorable night is the musicians. These two masters of acoustic Cretan instruments and singing gave the night so much Energy and dancing inspiration.

Words cannot describe how much this experience meant to me. Alex from beggining to end went out of his way to make us feel safe and beyond that made me feel like a had a real friend here in Greece- when I really needed one. Before we arrived he messaged via WhatsApp, asked if I had questions, assisted with the million questions I did have about Heraklion and helped arrange transportation to my hotel. Eddie his driver was there when we arrived with a huge smile and sign with my name. He also gave us insider tips on how to make sure we were being charged fairly. The night itself was filled with amazing authentic food that he prepared. The musicians were charming and talented. And we felt like we were surrounded by friends vs strangers. During the experience I got a text message that my older brother passed away. Alex rubbed my back while I cried. Asked me how he could help. Checked on me the next day. I will forever be indebted to him for being a warm person when I felt very alone in a new country away from my loved ones at the time. Trust me- this is the experience for you.
