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.
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
Artemis was amazing! We really enjoyed her perspective as a native Athenian. We got to know some unique aspects of Greek cuisine and just had allot of fun. Couldn and #39;t recommend this tour more, especially just to get acquainted with the city!
We did this tour on our full first day in Athens and thought it was great! We learned about local foods, tried things that we may not have tried otherwise, and went back to the places later on in our stay. The tour was great! Highly recommend doing this and doing it early on in your stay.
