Q: Are meals included in your tours?
Breakfast is generally included each day. Some meals are included, especially the ones after a cooking class but we prefer to keep also some lunches and dinners free to allow travelers to see how they feel each day and what type of Greek dish they desire. We make advance restaurant reservations when requested, and we provide detailed lists of recommended restaurants in each location. 
Q: I had a look at your site and I discovered that you only do packages for groups between 2 to 8 persons. Very personalised groups. I belong to a Greek cooking association in Vienna Austria and I would like to follow your culinary program coming with all the members of the association who are around 41. Am I asking too much?
A: No it is alright. Our pecific gastronomic programs can only have from 2-12 participants indeed. But we can make a new tailor made itinerary for your large group still based on quality culinary moments. We have really good cooks, guides and helpful hotel staff so that we can offer tremendous service even for a big number of participants as long as the program gets modified.
Q: Your itineraries look amazing. Is it possible to make changes to the itineraries?
A: Yes, our specialty is customized travel. We are happy to modify any of the tours on our website, or to start from scratch and custom-design a new tour altogether.
Q: We have our own hotels and only need a day or two of private touring. Can you assist?
Aegean Flavours can arrange private tours that are inclusive of comprehensive services (accommodation, private touring, and private transfers). A minimum tour length does apply and varies by destination.
Q: I am considering one of your tours. What's next?
Please contact us by telephone, e-mail once you are considering a trip. At that point, we can answer any questions regarding your wishes. Then we tell you how the reservation proceeds ahead.
Q: How far in advance should I book my trip?
This depends how far in advance you prefer to plan. We book last-minute trips all the time, and we also arrange tours that are planned years in advance. Major considerations are visa requirements, holiday and festival availability, and seasonal demand.
Q: Are visas arranged by Aegean Flavours?
Visa requirements vary by country, and many of our destinations require tourist visas to be obtained in advance. We do not arrange your visa.
Q: What is travel insurance and medical evacuation insurance?
We strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance and medical evacuation insurance. If you do not have travel insurance and you cannot take or complete your tour for any reason, you stand to lose the entire amount you’ve paid for your trip. Travel insurance offers protection against such circumstances, including trip cancellations, interruptions and delays, baggage loss and delays, medical emergencies and other problems. Medical evacuation plans offer additional protection: in the event of an emergency, our recommended affiliate will fly you on their ICU-equipped aircraft to the hospital of your choice.

We always provide the best available vehicles in each region: safe, comfortable, spacious and air-conditioned. For families or for larger groups of friends traveling together, we provide luxury mini-vans or coaches.

Q: What is there to do during ‘leisure time’?
Our clients are savvy, sophisticated travelers who want the convenience of guides and our expertise, but want independence as well. There are plenty of things to do when you are not touring with your guide. We can provide you with other options for sightseeing or you can enjoy hotels’ facilities, such as pools and spas and, when available, beaches and gardens.

We provide our clients with extensive restaurant recommendations and are happy to make advance dinner reservations. From haute Mediterranean cuisine to local favorites to traditional dinners in private Greek homes, we know all the best places to have a variety of dining experiences.

Q: I love to travel and want to apply for a position at your company. How do I do so?
