We loved this tour. Met our guide Artemis and then proceeded to the first stop. This store that she took us to had all Greek items. We were taken to the back of the store where they were set up for us. We tasted olive oil, vinegar, and some other items. From there off to the doughnut place, where we sampled hot, fresh Greek type doughnuts. They were delicious I might add. From there to the markets fruit, vegetables and fish. Next to the cooking school where we sampled more food. This type was cooked in a large pot and heated from a unique burner. By the time this tour was over we were stuffed. Great way to learn about Greek traditional food, plus some foods that really are not Greek. I highly recommend this tour!
Great tour. Artemis was great guide. Food stops were excellent. Would do it again with gusto.
Fabulous! Lot of fun and saw a variety of different culinary experiences. This was our favorite tour. The guide was very knowledgeable, animated and engaging.
This is an excellent way to spend a few hours in Athens, affording an opportunity to learn about Athenian and Greek history and culture in ways only food and drink reveal. It's also a great opportunity to pick up some non-trinkety gifts for friends and family -- like a little jar authentic Greek tomato paste you'll taste, or a scoop of spices or tea leaves from one of the stores you will visit.
My husband and I loved this tour! We did this on our first day in Athens, and it was a very helpful introduction to the city. The food was amazing! Our guide was Artemis Olympidou, she was interesting, energetic, and fun! Athens is a terrific city, with terrific food, interesting sights, and wonderful people. This tour was really fun!
PS. We suggest that you don't eat breakfast before the tour. Save room for the delicious and plentiful native Greek food!
This was awesome. We had a wonderful guide who knew the city inside and out. We tasted wonderful food and drink. This is out side of the normal sightseeing tours, but it was absolutely wonderful.
My husband and I really enjoyed the small group food tour. We went to 10 locations and tried lots of different things. Our tour guide, Vicky, was excellent. She told us the history behind the food. Overall it was excellent and we would highly recommend it.
This tour was one of our favorite parts of Athens. Go early in your trip and see interesting parts of the city, learn a lot, and eat! We were able to figure out what we liked and get better food cheaper. Very friendly, sweet guide.
Great tour. You get to sample all sorts of delicious foods and learn about the culture, and the guide takes you through the open markets as well which are quite an experience. Definitely worth it. Come hungry and you will leave very full - definitely won't need to eat breakfast or lunch that day outside of this tour.
Great tour guide! Tons of great tastes... it was a wonderful walk through Athens. I founds lots of fun foods to take home to the USA!
From hello to goodbye, tour guide Artemis Olympidou captured our attention and ran away with it!! She was well-informed, entertaining, a great conversationalist and passionate about her job. Not only would I recommend her to anyone asking, I would specifically ask for her if I could do the same tour again!!
Artimis was an awesome tour guide. The food was the great, and I definitely enjoyed the history and stories behind the food and areas we walked through. This trip being my first time in Greece, the tour was a great intro into the Greek culture. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone, especially those who want to explore more than what's on the main streets.
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.
Take this tour for sure! Our guide was fantastic, the routing is good and just the right pace. Every shop or cafe we visited was unique and something we would not have found on our own. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who visits Athens. It gave us a chance to see a part of the city that is off the normal tourist route, and to interact with shopkeepers and chefs in an intimate way.
This was a great tour and would highly recommend it to anyone. Artimis (Diane) our tour guide was great. She had lots of information on the history of Athens and they places we were to visit. There was a wide selection of food to eat so no one was hungry at the end of the tour. She gave us a map in case we wanted to go back to any of the restaurants and stores. And she was very patient with us as we made our purchases at various stores along the way.
I thought the tour was excellent. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We visited places we would never have found on our own by walking around.
Dorina was such a wonderful guide. She took us to an area that normally tourists wouldn't go and we got to see a whole new side of Athens. I loved the food and the people. She was very informative. Recommend all those who love to walk and want to try the goodies Greece has to offer
Despina did and excellent job with our walking food tour. What a mix of delicious foods and information about history and traditions.
This was a great tour. We enjoyed the variety large of food we were shown and tasted. Our guide was very informative and made the tour interesting. I recommend this tour if you enjoy food!
Our tour guide Vangelis was very personable and knowledgeable about the history of Greek cuisine. We had ten stops in all and each one was very different from the other. The food tasting was great and there was plenty to eat. We especially enjoyed our stops at the Tavern and the bakery that specialized in phylo treats. We highly recommend that when you visit Athens to take this tour as an introduction to the city and its food.
This was a great tour. We visited about 9 different places for tastings of the local food, most of which are not usually visited by tourists. Our tour guide was great so we were given a lot of information about the places we visited and the food we tasted. The size of the group is limited to about 15 people.
We do food tours everywhere we go- this is one of the best. Knowledgeable guide and a good steady pace. Visit the neighborhoods where the locals shop. The market is amazing!!!! Feel the energy!!!! Lots to sample. This is a must do tour.
