  • We visited this amazing museum with my fruends and found some really interesting pieces. The staff is helpful abd keen on their profession. There are also great souvenirs.  more »
  • We went to meet Yannis in his workshop and it was a real treat! Great home with coffee, juice and cookies, many explanations on the techniques used by our request. Presentation of the work of founder, of manufacturing steps, until the patina of parts. Everything is hand made in the workshop, impressive! Yannis even offered children to engrave their names on the small parts they had bought and has agreed to change the patina of one of the small statuettes (passage of the oxidized to a nice varnish Polish State). A great experience that shows that not all Greek souvenirs are made in China! A without hesitation! Vincent

  • I visited this unique place with my family in August 2017. and found wonderful people, keen on their profession. My children (6 and 12 years old) were delighted to independently make souvenirs for themselves by ancient technology under the guidance of a great master and a man of a broad soul. Master Yannis and his assistant Gavrilis are very friendly and open-minded people who generously donate their knowledge. The tour will be very informative, especially for children of school age, reserve at least two hours. Guaranteed positive emotions, as well as the opportunity to purchase highly artistic handmade souvenirs in memory of Crete. Mr. Yannis, thank you and your team for your work.
