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.
Excellent guide who was really interested in her topic. Lots of background information about the food and lots of tastings
Lots of fun!
Excellent food tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend

Though we've already tried a few of the items that were on the list by the time we did the tour did it on our last full day in Athens, it was a great experience nonetheless because the guide was able to give us insights not only about the food we were eating but also of the area in the city where we were walking.
Despina was our tour guide and she was amazing! She loves what she does and has passion for food, tourism, and Greece. The food was amazing. We had Loukoumades, a honey and nut covered doughnut, which was amazing. We also got a gyro, feta cheese and thyme infused honey, morning sesame bread, Spanakopita and Bougasta which are sweet and savory pies. Despina also showed us an amazing local tavern to eat where we sampled some amazing cooked beans and some house wine. She showed us an Orthodox Church, explained the Greek flag, told us about the trees around town, and showed us the fish and meat market and the fruits and vegetable market. The tour was amazing and worth the time and money!
My boyfriend and I had a great time on this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgable. She provided us with a bit of historical context to the food culture in Greece. We enjoyed visiting a part of the city we might not have ventured to on our own. We would recommend this tour to anyone planning to visit Athens. It's a great way to remember that despite the awesome history, Athens is a bustling city with plenty to do outside of the typical areas.
We booked this tour in October when we visited Athens after a Med cruise and we were not disappointed at all!! Vicki was our guide and she is extremely knowledgeable of the Greek culture and food which was exactly what we were looking for. The food was all incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip!!
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.
