This was a great tour. We got to sample so many foods and ended the tour with an understanding of authentic Greek food. We also had some restaurant's names to try out and they were delicious. The guide not only shared information about food but also the culture. We like to take food tours of every city we visit since sampling local cuisine is one of our favorite things to do when we travel.

Lots of fun ! We were taken to areas of Athens that we probably wouldn't have discovered on our own. Doreena was an enthusiatic and very entertaining guide.
