This tour was one of the best food tours we have taken! Eirini, our guide, was fantastic, funny, knowledgeable and informative. She made the walk really great with local information and she even prepared a traditional Greek salad for us. We highly recommend this tour and Eirini, one of the best. We felt we learned so much and appreciate Greek cuisine even more alter this tour.
Eirini was awesome! She was promptly on time at the meeting point. She was very knowledgeable about Athens and the food it had to offer. She took me all over the area and we tried many different dishes. From cured camel to freshly made Greek salad to souvlaki and many other dishes. One thing that was really cool about Eirini was that she really wanted to get to know me as a person and that made a big difference in my awesome experience with her. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and highly recommend this tour!
My wife and I had a great tour with Irina, who was super knowledgeable and personable. Although some places were closed due to the Easter Holiday, she adapted the tour and we had a great time. Highly recommend!
An absolutely fantastic tour! Cured meats, olive oil, fish and meat market, wine, sweets and more! This tour had it all! Every member of our family loved it (two adults and two teenage girls). I cannot recommend this tour enough. It is a great way to get introduced to a cool part of Athens and great Greek food!
We, party of six, took the Athens Gourmet Walking tour with a lovely host, Anna. It was extremely informative about Athens food, culture and traditions. We all absolutely ecstatic after the tour because it was so enjoyable with a lot of diverse food options. We rate this experience as awesome and extremely enjoyable and all agreed it was a great start to getting to know the city. Do not hesitate, just jump on board, you will not regret it one moment.
Dorella was a great guide! My husband and I did this tour on our first day in Athens and it was perfect! We got to see the city and get an idea of where everything is located around the central part and where to come back to try more! There is a TON of food. Most food tours I've been on are kind of stingy with the amount of food but not this tour! Absolutely worth the money! Dorella was very open about answering questions about greek culture. The traditional greek coffee making was so cool to see! The loukamades were soo good!
The tour was enjoyable and relax. However, it is too expensive with the type of food tasting offered. You can easily have the same food or better for a small fraction of the tour price and they are not difficult to find in the old town area. Disappointed.
Have you ever done a walking food tour where the guide actually preparers food for you?! Not only did we visit bakeries (spanokopita and baklava) and coffee shop and delicatessen, but best part was going to the vegetable market where our guide bought fresh tomatoes and then to a shop where she prepared Greek salad with fresh feta and we did olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. Well worth the cost and lots of fun. Definitely recommend.
The perfect food walking tour! Ireni was the definition of know how and hospitality. The Greek salad she created for us in the surprise deli has altered our definition of what a Greek salad should be. The food we sampled was the best that Greece has to offer. Do not miss this opportunity to learn so much about Athens and its exciting culinary treats. Hugh and Judy
