You visit where the locals eat and shop. Food was very tasty
Delicious! This is a great option for your second day or second visit to Athens. We visited several local stores and tasted a wide range of Greek foods. Focus was on the true local businesses and we felt very off the tourist track. Our guide was absolutely perfect - full of knowledge and able to answer all our questions, but also took very good care of our group. Five stars for sure!
One of the best food tours we've had, including several in Paris. The group was small about 15 and we ran the gamut of 10 worthwhile stops along the way. We sampled at each one and ended at a Taverna where we had tasty gyros. Our guide was knowledge, friendly, and overall superb. I highly recommend this food tour. It was one of the highlights of our visit to Athens.
N.B. The stops include brief visitd to the meat and fish markets, which may be a bit much for those who are squeamish or uncomfortable with unpleasant odors.
Fantastic tour! Would highly recommend this Athens small group food tour. Our wonderful guide, Artemis, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited the seafood, meat and fruit and vegetable markets, small delicatessens and various shops where Artemis explained about the different items. We got to try many different foods, olive oils, Greek yoghurt, cold meats, liqueurs, sweet and savoury pastries and many other delicacies. There was an opportunity to purchase many of these items. There were about 10 people in our tour so a perfect size, it was easy walking pace and took about 3.5 hours and finished with a delicious souvlaki lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour and would look to do a similar food tour in other cities when travelling overseas. It was one of the highlights of our time in Athens.
An excellent introduction to Greek food and drink. The guide was very pleasant and informative and there was no pressure to buy any items if you chose not too. Very good value for money.
This was one of the best experiences I had during my entire trip! Diana/Artemis was a truly fabulous guide. She was very well informed, funny, energetic and overall wonderful. The food was delicious, I learned a lot and I would recommend this to anyone going to Athens.
One of the most memorable tours of our entire 3 week trip to Greece! Our knowledgeable guide took us around a real Greek neighborhood delivering a movable feast! A great introduction to the mouth watering foods of Greece. This knowledge helped us read menus throughout the entire rest of our stay in Greece. Don't miss this wonderfully tasty and satisfying tour!
Fabulous! Armetis, our leader was fantastic. We went to different neighborhoods and tasted a variety of food, plus lunch! Totally recommend this tour above all others!
Artemis was a great hostess! I loved the Cretan shop and the full disclosure of what's real Greek food and what has been acquired from other places. I felt like it was a great deal with all the samples, including the drink samples. I would definitely recommend to others!
This was a brilliant tour, we were taken around Athens and tasted many things I would not have tried. We were also advised the history of the food we were trying - amazing!! We were also given a map of where we were going and the names of the stores. This was great as I went back and bought some of the products we tasted to take back as gifts. Highly recommended!
This was a great tour to see Athens and learn about its food and culture. Our guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the foods and the businesses we visited. I learned a lot about Greek culture and history. The food was delicious and varied. I would recommend it highly!
All the family, including my two teenagers, enjoyed this one! We started our week in Athens by taking this tour and it really gave us a flavour of the city as well as a couple of places we went back to on our own later for meals - the guide was friendly and got the whole group engaged in the places and things she showed us. Make sure to have a light breakfast to leave room for the samples of local foods that you get to taste as part of this excellent experience!
Guide was knowledgeable and provided very useful information. Had fun and learned a lot. Enjoyed trying new food items. Definitely recommend.
I had a great time! It was a lot of fun walking through Athens, seeing the markets, vendors and shops, and experiencing Greek culture. Our guide was superb sorry, I don't remember his name and the food was delicious!
The food tour gives some fantastic insight into the eating habits of the Greek people, and really explores some areas of Athens you wouldn't necessarily explore on your own, such as the meat and fish market. A great tour!
Tour guide excellent, good range of samples of food, would have preferred more savoury and less sweet, was good to get into the less touristy area, great group - it was a good idea for us all to introduce ourselves at the start, it opened it up to us talking to each other. Really enjoyed the whole tour.
Fantastic and a must do!!!!i ate so much and learned alot that helped me throughout my trip!
Wonderful tour. Artemis was a delight. She was personable, intelligent, and made sure everyone has a great time. I would highly recommend taking this tour.
ARTEMIS BROUGHT US IN THRU THE BACK DOOR OF ATHENS TO ITS HEART. WE ENJOYED HER PERSPECTIVE AND APPRECIATION OF GREEK FOOD , IT'S HISTORY AND EVOLUTION. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TOUR TO EVERYONE FOR A WONDERFUL, SENSUAL AND INFORMATIVE TOUR OF ATHENS
This might be the best tour that we have ever been on. Not only was the food great, but we had the best tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and fun to be around!! We had a great time and had the opportunity to try a bunch of different types of foods! Definitely a must!
Great tour of food areas of central athens. Despina was extremely personable and knowledgeable and incorporated food history into the tour. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in authentic greek food.
