About
Far from the crowded beaches and busy shops, beats the heart of what we locals call the "real" Naxos. There is far more to this heavenly island than what can be seen at a first glimpse. It would however be selfish to keep these hidden gems to ourselves. Therefore we created Naxian Experiences with the purpose to share our passion and love for our island with everyone who wants to join us!

This company isn't just about the cooking classes. We had the most magical day in Naxos with Kostas. I could almost write a novel about how amazing our day was.

Luckily, we met Kostas on our first day on the island when he came to pick us up from the port. We could immediately tell he was an absolutely gem and asked if he did tours of the island. We booked through Naxian Experiences and spent the day with him before we left.

Kostas was the highlight of our entire trip to Naxos. He mixed culture and food and shopping so perfectly but in a way that made us feel like we were old friends. Speaking of friends- Kostas knows the entire island. Every single person we ran into or visited, from tour operators, to ticket takers at ancient sites, to his childhood friend who owns the only pottery warehouse on the island, the women who have been making goods with a look for centuries- Kostas knew everyone. (And the liquor distillers and the olive oil makers... you get the idea). We eventually started to tease him that he should run for mayor!

Kostas speaks about Naxos from a place of pure love and adoration- he is so proud of where he comes from and his brain is filled with all the knowledge you could possibly imagine (but not in a pushy way where you feel like you're in history class).

Please, use Kostas as your tour guide. You'll be so glad that you did- he's such a wonderful man and it was really just the best day.

My husband and I had heard of Ms Juliana and wanted to try her cooking class. We had a private pickup and ended up having our own private cooking class. The setting is beautiful and the food was delicious! Ms Juliana was very encouraging and showed us how to do every step. We had so much food and they boxed it up for us to take with us. I can't wait to try the recipes!

The entire experience was outstanding. Nikko, Julianna and Husband were delightful. Food was outstanding but even better was the authenticity of the experience and the passion and love that these folks put into their food, farm and family. Learned a lot about the Naxian culture and learned there is a lot that goes into making honey.

We spent two weeks in Greece and this was by far the highlight of our trip. I know a cooking class may seem simple but what an experience. If you really want to immerse yourself into the food of Naxos and have fun doing it, I would highly recommend this.
We ate at numerous very nice restaurants all over Greece, yet this was still our favorite meal. The freshness of the food and ingredients, paired the knowledge of Juliann, really makes this a unique and mouthwatering experience.

Note: DO NOT eat before you go. More food than you could possibly eat. Also plan on leftovers. If you're staying in a hotel, make sure you can store stuff in a fridge and then possibly heat it up later. Our hotel was gracious enough to heat things up for us.

Absolutely fabulous experience! Great way to see a completely different (and still beautiful) side of Naxos. If you have the time, this is well worth it!

Everything was amazing, Mrs Juliana showed us how to make an awesome home cooked meal. Our driver Nico gave us a tour of the farm which was incredible. There was an abundance of food and plenty of leftovers to bring back to your room. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.

Here's a case where my expectations exceeded the results. This was a truly unique experience and I enjoyed the whole day of instruction, hands-on cooking, the aroma, views, and flavors. Even the cook, Julianne, reminded me of my grandmother. The only let-down was that the lamb was not grilled over the fire, and it was overcooked in the wood-burning oven . . . it came out dry and tough. This was what I was really looking forward to so yes, it was a bit of a disappointment. Plus, no red wine with the meal. I realize that's my personal preference but like I said, my expectations were perhaps too high. On the plus side, my daughter and I had a memorable day together that we'll talk about for the rest of our lives.
