We were able to spend a very instructive and wonderful day in Apollona. Aside from tourism, we were able to taste numerous local sweets and delicious wines. The highlight of the tour was the cooking class. Here we tried, with professional support, traditional dishes that were then served for lunch. Finally we got an insight into the past of the island in a historical museum. A big thank you also goes to our guide Maria, who guided us through the day with lots of information. The tour is an absolute must if you are not only interested in sun and sea but also in the country, which has a lot more to offer. Definitive recommendation for this tour.
