We really loved this tour, our guide, Mariana (sorry if mispelling) gave us a lot of historical and local information. A beautiful and tasteful experience, in never seen places in the center of Athens. I recommend also for families with teenagers. We tasted a lot of food and drinks and saw nice places.

We really enjoyed our Athens food tour with Georgia. The meeting place was easy to find and within walking distance of our hotel. Our group of 8 want to a variety of places from a food cart to a sit down taverna, with a market, spice shop, pie shop, and deli in between. The food was varied, plentiful, and delicious. Best of all, was our guide, Georgia, who was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend this tour.

Taking a food tour is one of the best ways to experience a city culture and feel the vibes. Lucy combined history with some traditional foods to help one understand the role of food in their every day life. We sampled at least 9 different foods from specialty shops to restaurants. I enjoyed the spice and herb shop and the outdoor market—what a fest for the eyes!! Thanks for sharing your love of Greek food and life. Shirley and Lea

What a great way to learn about the culture and food history of Athens, as well as to visit some gems you’d likely not find on your own. Our guide, Georgia Kalimeri, was knowledgeable and fun to be around. 2 thumbs up!

Great tour. Annalise was one of the best tour guide I have ever encountered. The foods we tasted were explained to us as to preparation and culture influence and meaning. It was fun and the food items and walking through the markets made for great photos and people watching! Highly recommend. A high light of my Athens visit.

What a fun tour. Our guide gave us a walk through a typical Greek eating habits, whether a day of work or celebration, and where they buy their food at a corner kiosk, or at the city market. We walked through the fish, meat, produce, and anything else markets. We ate samples at kiosks and restaurants. This tour was worth the cost. You learn lots and eat lots.
