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.

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.

What a great surprise!!! I had visited Athens before and wanted to try something new...the great news is that the tour was over the top, the slightly bad news is that I did not tell my Boyfriend ahead of time, that I had booked this tour. Cranky at first, He was raving about it by the end of the day....a true testament to a 5 star tour.
The walking tour of Markets, Spice houses, Bakeries, Traditional Specialties, and stories of the food as it relates to the culture of the people was so amazingly interesting. There were fantastic tastings, maybe too many by the end of the afternoon, but everything was so memorable......our group of three couples on the tour made it great fun for everyone :
