Overview

Appease your appetite for traditional Greek food during this half-day small-group culinary tour in Athens. Follow your guide to 10 carefully curated specialty food shops, located off the beaten path in residential neighborhoods, to taste Athenian delicacies such as honey, spices, sweets, cured meat, cheese and olive oil. Finish your tour with a taste of the much-celebrated Greek souvlaki. This tour is limited to 12 people or fewer to ensure an intimate atmosphere; all tastings are included.
  • Stroll through off-the-beaten-path residential areas with your guide
  • Visit local bakeries, restaurants, specialty shops and an open-air market
  • Taste traditional foods and ingredients such as souvlaki, honey, olive oil and Greek coffee
  • Small group of 12 people or fewer ensures a more personal experience
Meet your guide at Syntagma Square, the most central point in Athens. Your tour group is limited to 15 travelers to ensure an intimate experience, personalized attention from your guide and the chance to ask questions.

Take off walking through the residential areas of Athens, in which you will get see a true slice of everyday life. Visit nearly a dozen carefully selected specialty food stores, favorites of the locals, to taste traditional Greek foods. 

Bite into some 'pastoruma', or cured meat, and taste local honey, cheese and olive oil. Sip aromatic Greek coffee (erroneously known as 'Turkish' coffee in many parts of the world). Get familiar with some of the local spices that are the basis for Greek cooking, a multi-sensory experience for the eyes, nose and mouth. Stroll through the bustling alleys of Varvakios, the fish, meat and vegetable market known as the true 'belly of Athens'. Visit local bakeries and pastry shops serving traditional Greek sweets, including the famous souvlaki. Along the way, enjoy informative commentary from your guide on the culinary history and traditions of this ancient city.

Finish your tour with a full stomach and a better understanding of Greek culinary culture.

Maria was a wonderful tour guide. This tour is so good!!! We were so full afterwards. Maria took us around town provided us with information about the city past and present. She's professional, relaxed and kind.

This was to be a small group tour, but we lucked out and it was just us with Katerina. She was personable and informative. She did a great job introducing us to the local food and helping us get over the worry of intruding in local spots. Thankfully this was a walking tour because we ate a ton of food. The portions are generous and we enjoyed the information as well as the flavors.

Maria was fabulous. Every site we visited came with the history of the food. I felt like we were on the “best of” food tour of Athens. So full at the end and an amazing variety covering all food groups! Highly recommend!!

I loved every minute of this fantastic walking tour through Athens. Each food site was unique, locally owned, and tasty. I left sated physically and historically about the unique food history and options in Athens. The tour guide was fantastic. I recommend giving us a list of the sites we visited so we could go back. Even a little podcast would be great as this tour is fantastic.

We always do a food tour when we go overseas. We traveled through the different neighborhoods learning about the local foods and history of the areas. Good food, great lessons, and walking to work off the what you are eating. FUN!

Good guide and places to visit, but variety of food was poor

The guide was good and knowledgeable about Athens and some of the food. The locations we visited were interesting. However the selection of food was poor. Virtually everything we tried was sweet. No tzatziki, meat skewers or souvlaki. This could easily be made a lot better by incorporating some of those or other savoury greek food into the tour.

Zoey,our guide, was effervescent, knowledgable and comprehensive. She brought us to places and food tasting experiences we would likely never have found on our own.
