This was a fun way to see some of the sights you might not otherwise see. The tour takes you through local Greek shopping areas that you might stumble across yourself, but the tour allows you to have a more complete experience of them. My tour guide was very pleasant to speak with and in fact, all of the tour guides in greece that are licensed had to go to a 3 year school so they all are pretty solid and can handle a wide range of questions on Greece and the topic that you are there for.
Be sure to bring cash with as many of the shops would not accept credit cards, and it's a good way to get some tasty souvenirs to bring home.
This was a fantastic tour, especially in the off season. My guide, Costas, tailored the tour to avoid the places where I had been already in Athens in order to show me new things while following the same basic planned path. He made the tour feel special by showing some of the lesser seen areas of Athens by tourists - places where you would unlikely ever go without a knowledgeable guide. I felt that the title is accurate, this was a 'hidden' walking tour and a lot of fun.
This was a fun cooking class. I learned a lot about the Greek style of food preparation from the delightful host of the event, Maria. She distributed recipes of the items we prepared afterwards so that we can make the dishes at home. She is very knowledgeable about the interactions of the ingredients and the effect of the cooking process on the recipes and articulates all of that in a fun and engaging manner. The best part - though you are strangers when you walk in, she makes all those present feel as part of a big Greek family relaxing and making food together.
