GREECE

 

Francesca Muir
Crete

Francesca Muir takes small, culinary and cultural tours to Crete Greece, where for two weeks you’ll explore the island and experience first-hand authentic Cretan hospitality. You’ll visit traditional villages where the locals live as they have for centuries, and travel across Crete to see snow-tipped mountains, deep gorges, fertile valleys and sublime beaches snuggling up to azure seas.
Having lived on the island for many years, her tours are designed to give you a very personal insight into the island that lies at the heart of the Mediterranean Diet and the cradle of civilization thanks to the ingenuity of the Minoan Civilization. So if you are looking for an authentic tour with a difference this is for you. You’ll learn to cook delicious healthy dishes using fresh, organic produce from the famed Cretan Diet; discover the secrets to the island’s ancient olive oil and wine industries; experience a Minoan feast slow cooked according to Minoan traditions; swim in peacock coloured waters and much, much more.

UNCOVR - The Mediterranean Lifestyle
 

UNCOVR TRAVEL

From the paradisiac coastlines of Portugal to the countryside markets of Italy, a new approach to eco-friendly, socially conscious luxury travel beckons. Born from the myriad journeys of founder Jason Wertz, UNCOVR Travel hosts small group tours brought to life by local co-hosts - chefs, designers, vintners and artists – who allow travelers to truly uncover hidden gems not found in the guidebooks.

Through a lifetime of travel, Wertz met extraordinary individuals who made the places he visited authentic, exciting and memorable.

Taste Hopping - The Mediterranean Lifestyle
 
 

Taste Hopping
Greece

Taste Hopping is a platform that aims to celebrate the Greek islands and their local cuisine. Though the island groups share certain characteristics, products, and recipes, we want to showcase how individual each and every island (even the most remote) has its own set of local delicacies, culinary traditions, and ‘secret’ ingredients. 
If you are visiting or planning to visit one (or more) of the Islands, we are here to guide you. Be it straightforward suggestions on what and where to eat, to creating unique culinary adventures especially designed for you, consider us your Hosts.

As your hosts, we are beyond delighted that you have found your way to the Greek Islands, albeit virtually. It is here beneath the extraordinary light, on these little specks of land scattered throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas that culinary magic takes place. It is here, through food, that we will assist you in connecting to the land, to the sea, with the rich culinary heritage, and the locals. We will share with you what the islanders, without hindrance, have shared with us.

MONTENEGRO

Montours - The Mediterranean Lifestyle
 

Montours
Montenegro

Montenegro, also known as the pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, unique in many ways, is situated in the south of Adriatic. Nowadays this hidden secret of Balkan peninsula is being discovered everyday more and more but it still succeeds to leave breathless every visitor that comes across this small country. Nowhere else in the world could you find such a small territory with such great combinations of different ecosystems that were a theme of dozens of articles and books by foreigner authors for the past few centuries. Natural wealth, untouched wild beauty, long beaches, clear lakes, fast rivers and high mountains in a such compact area intertwined with traditional, rich historical and cultural heritage is a rarity, not only to experience but to describe with words.
Just imagine, you can start your morning with a cup of hot coffee on a cottage in the mountains covered with snow, and in just few hours you can sunbathe and take a swim in the big blue sea. Sounds like a dream? Well, that’s why we are trying to bring you close to this idea, to this experience, because we all know too well that happiness is real only when shared.

The Hellenic Odyssey
Greece

Our tours are designed for a unique kind of traveller – you. You’re seeking something more than hectic schedules, long wait times and the anonymity of a large travel group. Our small group tours and inclusive itineraries are about creating a more personalised travel experience at a more relaxed pace giving you time to connect, so that you feel more like you’re travelling with friends. As Greece is our heritage, we’re showcasing Chania through a cultural and culinary lens incorporating experiences with a ‘live like a local’ focus: what the locals do, where and what they eat, and how they live and socialise. 
We’ve researched extensively and personally participated in the activities included in this tour, to ensure they align with The Hellenic Odyssey’s values. We’ve selected the ‘best of the best’ experiences and created an itinerary that keeps travel time to a minimum (where possible) and provides the opportunity to discover Chania, its people, its culture, its cuisine and what philotimo truly means, without compromising on the experience of slow mindful travel.
