Hello!We are a family of beekeepers ,located in Crete .Our story starts back in 1982 when a young mathematician (our father) bought his first hive as a new hobby “a moment is enough”. The hobby had become obsessive! Since then, the bees have increased to hundreds hives in numerous bee yards across Crete, producing many different types of monofloral honeys. Nowadays the legacy continues as the next generation ,Yianni & Elena continue the excellence in honey production by implementing fresh ideas. Me as an agronomist and my sister as honey expert ,we will create a mind-expanding life experience.

Wir sind begeistert von dieser tollen Unternehmung, der Gastgeber ist Bienenhalter mit Leib und Seele das merkt man sofort. Wir haben sehr viel über Bienen und Honig gelernt und es war sehr spannend denn Bienen Mal so nah kommen zu können und anschließend auch noch den Honig auf der liebevollen Produktion von Yiannis Familie zu verköstigen. Wir hatten einen ganz tollen Nachmittag. Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit!

Really interesting and educational. Especially for people who are afraid of bees, Yannis proves just how soft these animals are. The location and viewpoint was really nice and we tried different kind of honeys.

A perspective transforming experience with Yianni, a passionate but not preachy expert of bees. The location was magical, showing the diverse and beautiful landscape of Crete. Surrounded by an olive grove we perched with two hives atop a hill and listened intently to Yianni explain about bee life. Yianni was so accommodating with the barrage of questions from two intrepid bee fans. He couldn’t have been happier to interact. We were so lucky to hold one of the plates in the brood box and study the bees up close. We saw two broods being born which was incredible. Finally we got to taste a range of honey which totally changed our perspective on what constitutes good, tasty and sustainable honey. Do not hesitate to book this generous and fascinating experience. Thank you Yianni!

Yianni is easy to communicate and is passionate about his work! There was a misunderstanding based on the advert, but he made it right and we walked away feeling much better and were able to have a wonderful memory!

This was an amazing tour. I never thought the topic of bees would be so interesting, but Yianni is so knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Not to mention the honey, tasted so good. If you want a unique and fun time, please take this tour.

Great experience getting up close and personal with friendly honey making bees – no stings anywhere in our group, not even on our brave and amazingly well informed beekeeper Yianni who for some reason chose to dress in shorts and a t-shirt unlike the rest of us more reassuringly kitted-out in the full and proper beekeepers kit provided. Opened a hive myself under Yianni’s supervision and took out several frames containing honeycombs and bees. Really interesting and strongly recommended as something a bit different. Got to taste various flavours of local honey each infused by the bees with a different taste – sage, thyme, carob and unexpectedly for Crete, wild heather. Would recommend to anyone interested in bees, honey, Crete or sunshine!
