Family Food Tours & Cooking in Naxos

    Have a fun food day with our food tasting tours and cooking lessons in Naxos. Choose between a walking food tour or cooking lesson, and discover delicious traditional produce and tasty homemade dishes!

    Family Food Tasting Tour in Naxos

    This family food walking tour in Naxos is a great way to understand how agriculture and gastronomy are tied to the land. From the fertile western side of Naxos to the fields where cattle graze peacefully, and the mountains where olives grow, the island provides all of the essentials needed for Naxian and Greek dishes.

    Our walking tour through Naxos Town will introduce you to some of the produce used in their creation. Along the way, you can taste local cheeses, traditional dishes, and liqueurs produced on the island. Our expert guide will show you through the streets of the town, pointing out family-owned businesses who specialize in various products and revealing a few hidden gems along the way. There’s even a visit to a candy shop where the kids can find out how the candy is produced!

    The food tasting tour ends with a 20-minute short tour of the Venetian castle. This tour is ideal for families who are curious about the local food and would like a guide to show them through the streets of Naxos town. Tour length of approx. 3 hours.

    Family Cooking Lessons in Naxos

    Take your Naxos food experience a step further with a cooking lesson in one of the villages! In Kinidaros Village, we provide the opportunity to visit a traditional bakery to discover how pies and other delicious food is baked in wood ovens. After the demonstration, you can make and bake your own pie. Go for a stroll around the villages, and when the food is ready, you can enjoy a family picnic underneath the shade of a tree.

    In Kaloxylos Village, you can visit a family home, where you can learn all about local life, as well as the kinds of traditional dishes that people still cook on a daily basis. Then, you will be shown and learn how to make Greek meatballs, a traditional pie and a Naxian omelet with cheese and herbs. You’ll love how fresh and delicious everything tastes when you all sit down to sample your work when it’s done!

    • Hello, I have already contacted you in regards to another activity in Santorini. This query is about cooking with kids in Naxos but I am feeling very frustrated to be contacting you about the same issue. Why don’t you post any prices on your website? It seems like you are trying to hide something?

      It’s very annoying and frankly, I am happy to go with another company to avoid the extra leg work.


      • Hello Kate,
        I am so sorry that you have done through that. I checked and Maria Giannouli, one of our trip planners, emailed you straight after you sent the first request. I have asked her to forward the email to you once again and also resend it to you from her personal email (as sometimes emails end up in the junk/ spam folder). Regarding prices, it is impossible to publish prices as costs of tours vary by the number of kids as well as their ages. I understand that an instant booking would be easier, however, it is not possible at the moment.
        Thank you.
