Excellent tour
Kay_H, Jan 2022
We love taking these foodie tours. You get to experience not only different types of food but also the explanation of the different tastes. Usually these tours take you on the back streets were most tourist do not go. Our guide was excellent
Yum, Facts and Fun!

Katherine was so fun and informative! We had such a yummy and exciting day. Highly recommend for all ages. Not too much walking but just enough to burn off some of the cheese and bread calories ;)

FABULOUS tour - must do!
Emily_R, Dec 2021
Anabelia was a awesome food guide! We went to so many amazing Athens locations - she took us away from the tourist spots to where the locals shop and eat. Everything was so wonderful - and so plentiful! This was absolutely worth every penny - a must do excursion. A plus - Anabelia is so friendly, interesting, and full of information. We had such a great time...and went to bed early with very full stomachs!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Thank you so much for your feedback. It was a great pleasure to have you onboard and spend time during Gourmet Food tour. Our entire team here at Athens Walks wish you the best and hope to see you back. Kind Regards, Anabelia

My spouse and I took this tour after arriving in Athens while waiting for our room and it was the best!! We toured all the great spots and enjoyed so many wonderful dishes, even coffee brewed in hot sand. Visited the huge market and just had a fantastic afternoon! Do this one - you won't regret it. Our guide was a local lady that made it very enjoyable!

Private Gourmet Food tour- Athens
Candisie_F, Nov 2021
This tour is awesome if you are a foodie who wants to know about the history of your food. Our tour guide Eirini ( Irene) was amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. She was able to give us a history on Greece and its neighbours and then give us past and present uses of the foods we were going to try. My only negative comment about this tour was about something my brother experienced while walking through the seafood market where all the vendors seem to know the guide and was familiar with the tour. However, one vendor left his spot and came over to my brother, tapped him on his shoulder and shouted "hail Hitler". This was unnerving and unnecessary. We reported this to our guide but she didn't seem bothered which was unfortunate given the gravity of the act. My suggestion would be to ensure the vendors know that this tour is an important part of the Greek tourism product and that persons from all of the world attend so they should not only keep their hands to themselves but should keep their political opinions to themselves.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Dear Candisie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are very sorry for this incident. We have already contacted you personally and we believe that the whole misunderstanding has been solved. Again thank you for joining our Gourmet Food Tour! We hope to be able to host you again in the future! Best Wishes, Athens Walks Team
