Artemis was amazing! We really enjoyed her perspective as a native Athenian. We got to know some unique aspects of Greek cuisine and just had allot of fun. Couldn and #39;t recommend this tour more, especially just to get acquainted with the city!
We did this tour on our full first day in Athens and thought it was great! We learned about local foods, tried things that we may not have tried otherwise, and went back to the places later on in our stay. The tour was great! Highly recommend doing this and doing it early on in your stay.
What a great surprise!!! I had visited Athens before and wanted to try something new...the great news is that the tour was over the top, the slightly bad news is that I did not tell my Boyfriend ahead of time, that I had booked this tour. Cranky at first, He was raving about it by the end of the day....a true testament to a 5 star tour.
The walking tour of Markets, Spice houses, Bakeries, Traditional Specialties, and stories of the food as it relates to the culture of the people was so amazingly interesting. There were fantastic tastings, maybe too many by the end of the afternoon, but everything was so memorable......our group of three couples on the tour made it great fun for everyone :
The tour was great and well organized. The ladies who ran the tour were welcoming and knowledgeable. The place we met in the morning was easy to find. We wouldn't have known all the places we visited on our own for sure. The tour ended near the flea market, which we spent a little time there after the tour. Overall, highly recommended!
This was a great experience and a nice break from looking at all the ancient edifices. We were a small group of nine and our guide, Vicky, able and expertly led us through interesting parts of Athens that we'd not have found on our own. We visited a lot of wonderful markets and shops and had lots of tastes of a lot of items that help make up Greek Cuisine. Vicky was charming, informative and had a good sense of humor. I would highly recommend this tour!
Great tour , great guide. Saw many interesting markets and learned a lot.
Fantastic experience, for kids and adults both. One of our highlights in Athens. Loved Dorina, our guide.
We had a blast on the food tour. We went places that we would never have found on our own. We ate things that we might never have tried. This was our last activity in Greece. It was a great way to end our vacation!
Wonderful tour! The ladies were very welcoming and I would def go again! Great time and great food!
Vicky was our group's guide and she was excellent. We experienced a fascinating morning filled with Greek foods, markets, and culture. Lots of samples and sights! I was thrilled to be exposed to unique flavors and ideas and although I bought some things, I never felt obligated to buy. You can participate without spending extra, but you may want to. :- I especially enjoyed discovering some of the medicinal herbs/oils. Later I took my husband back to many of the places using the tour map and we enjoyed them all over again. Wonderful experience with an outstanding and sweet guide. Highly recommend.
Artemis was our guide in this food tour and she was enchanting. She introduce us to the real Athenians food. we loved this tour.
An excellent tour with Vicky. Her knowledge is second to none and the importance of Greek cuisine in society became very obvious. The selection of places we were taken and the wide variety of foods we tried were amazing and I thoroughly reccommend this tour if you have any interest in seeing an authentic side of Athens. There's history and politics involved as you learn how food is central to Greek culture and you'll see places that you might not otherwise visit as a tourist, but which certainly warrant a reurn trip at lesiure to sample their products more widely.
Please note, you WON'T need breakfast and you may want a snooze by the time you've finished! A perfect Saturday morning...
The tours gives a different perspective to the history of Greece through the cuisine, traditions, changes, influences of different important events. Despina is very knowledgable and makes sure every traveller is treated with care. Food tasted has been delicious.
AMAZING!!!! Best tour ever. We visited so many interesting and tasty places, and learned so much about the food. It was an easy walk, even in the cold, and the food and guide were outstanding! Our guide was Dorina Katsadoraki and she was superb!! She told us interesting facts, took us to interesting places, and gave us time to shop or by things at places we visited --such as the amazing spice shop and little grocery. Well worth the price! Make sure you do this tour when in Athens.
This tour was terrific! We only had six in the group. The guide was very knowledgeable and we saw shopping areas that we would have never discovered as tourist. We had great samples of foods as we moved from one location to the next.
We loved our small group food tour. This was one of our favorite days we spent in Athens. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this tour.
Dorina was a very spunky and knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed every second and every bite of this tour. As with all food tours we have done so far: It is a lot of food. Come hungry :
Great walking tour took me to places, tastes, and insights that I would have missed. I'd gladly go again.
excellent tour. The guide was really interesting and well informed. Lots of tasty treats
Thanks Lyn and 3 others
Food tours are on of the best ways to get to know a city. We really enjoyed our time with our guide, Artemis. She was very personable, and knowledgeable about Greek foods and their origins. We were able to sample many foods, treats and drinks, and walk around some local neighborhoods. It was a great way to get a local flavor of the big city of Athens.
This was a great experience, really unique, fun and interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are in Athens.
Excellent way to see the non-tourist version of Athens' food scene. Convenient meeting spot outside the subway station. A very interesting and fun experience.
We had a great time! We loved the variety of the stops we made, from the corner vendor, the spice shop, the meat and fish markets, the store where we learned about a variety of Greek specific food to the wonderful restaurant where we finished with an amazing lunch. We would recommend this tour to all of our friends who want an authentic look at Greece and it's food. Our tour guide, Artemis, was wonderful. She was very informative, had a great sense of humor and seem well liked by the shop owners of the places we visited. Kudos!
