Great for foodies! Sample popular and lesser-known Greek delicacies and visit a bustling local market where you can stock up on the spices that locals use.
Dorina Katsadorak was the tour guide. She walked us along streets and places we would never have seen if it hadn't been for her. She gave much interesting information. Besides the shops displaying their wares, we stopped at an old church and rested in a park. Could not have asked for a more enjoyable esperience.
What a great food tour! Our tour guide, Despina, was fantastic-incredibly knowledgeable and informative about Athens, its history and food culture she displayed a real passion for good food and its place in Athens life-which was both irrestible and infectious! As always, the tour was a great way of getting an introduction to a new city and to meet interesting people from around the world. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
Highlight of my Mediterranean trip! So much fun poking around the local markets, bakeries, spice shops and learning about the Greek way of life off the beaten tourista track. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and super pleasant. Picked up some amazing local ingredients to bring home including some amazing saffron and Greek Mountain Oregano and sampled so much food and drink! Only thing I would recommend it opting for them to pick you up instead of meeting the group - I missed that option when booking and had one heck of a time getting from the port to the meeting place on time!
We were in Europe for about 10 days, and this food tour was easily one of the highlights. Dorina was incredibly knowledgeable, spoke English very well, and provided fantastic insight to the history and culture of Athens. The food was great, the drinks were great, and length of the tour was great. We even brought home some of the things she had us try!
The knowledgeable guide took us on a walking tour of areas that were safe but though which I would have never ventured alone. We strolled through the giant food halls meat, fish, fruit. Our guide then took us to many small shops for sampling of various commonplace Greek food, including olive oil tasting. This tour was one of more interesting tours of my entire cruise/land experience. You do not have to be young to take part, just young at heart and able to walk well over uneven terrain of Athens city for a few hours. We also got a food/history lesson along the way.
Well worth it! The whole family enjoyed this tour. Went to local restaurants and shops representing a range of Greek food. Feel like we got the BEST representative taste of everything. Guide provided a nice mix of history and cultural background about the foods we were tasting. Full at the end!
This tour was amazing!
Our guide Doreena was great. Informative, friendly and professional. We loved the tour eapecially all the markets. Souvlaki was great too. A terrific way to spend a morning in Athens
We loved this tour and it really mad us appreciate Greece in a whole new light. Our tour guide was interesting, approachable and was really warm. She made us love Athens, the food, the people and the culture. We tasted olive oils, yoghurts, feta, spoon swets, olives, typical lunches, yuros, and much more!
Perfect to startany trip in Greece
