I thoroughly recommend this excellent tour. Despina was a great tour guide, answering questions and proving information on a range of topics, not just food. We were given a broad and very generous range of samples from many different outlets, with no pressure to purchase (though members of the group willingly did so in some places). The map and list of places visited was very helpful, for returning to excellent places later. As we were self catering for a week, it was very helpful getting advice on how much and how to buy at at the markets (very revealing to some of the younger members of our group to see whole carcasses with heads attached in the meat market!). We were a group of 10 which was manageable, and Despina took good care of us when crossing roads etc. A walking tour like this gives you such a great feel for the city, and gives you the confidence to go beyond the normal tourist cafes and shops.
