You'll also learn insider tips from world traveler and blogger Angelina, as you spend an hour learning how to make traditional, seasonal and regional dishes and desserts such as baklava and spanakopita. It's the perfect excursion for the food connoisseur and tenderfoot cook alike.

Get ready to roll up your sleeves as you start your hands-on lesson in Greek-style cooking by learning how to handle filo (phyllo) dough from Angelina. Angelina focuses on making regional Myconian dishes and has been teaching Greek cooking classes since the 1990s since first sharing her love of cooking while living in South Korea. With a passion for cooking that sparked from a young age watching her mother and grandmothers cook, Angelina has years of experience cooking authentic Greek food. You'll learn how to make dishes with Myconian produce, too.

Angelina will also share a lesson on Cycladic gastronomy as you learn to make dishes and desserts like the spinach-filled phyllo pastry spanakopita, feta parcels covered in sesame and honey, and baklava. You'll also learn to set a traditional Myconian meze or appetizer table with tasty starter dishes and condiments to enhance your hand-made dishes, including local olives and kopanisti cheese. Enjoy your meal over ouzo, a Greek alcoholic beverage flavored with anise and wine.

You'll end your culinary experience by dining on the meals and appetizers you made. Angelina will also have extra savory dishes and tasty desserts for you to try, such as Revithada--a Sifnos-style chickpea dish that's slow-cooked in a clay pot. Entertain your taste buds as you laugh, eat, and dine at the meze table or around Angelina's outdoor barbecue area.

Experience a hands-on cooking lesson filled with savory and sweet Greek dishes when you take this Mykonos private cooking tour. Book your private cooking tour today and discover how to recreate authentic Greek food that you can serve at your own dinner table.

ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
