Our expert was fabulous. She was extremely knowledgeable in the culinary world. The walking part of the tour was great. We thought we knew our location, but we were wrong. She showed us even more fantastic places in Greece. She made us feel at home. Totally recommend this tour. It was worth every penny.

Our lovely guide took us on a wonderful meander through the streets around Monastiraki Square to sample local delicacies. It was a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a morning but be warned - come with an empty stomach!

What a fun time! 4 of us...
Melissa_F, Feb 2023
What a fun time! 4 of us did a private tour in celebration of my BIG birthday and Dorela was the absolute best guide to be paired with. She had a great sense of humor and we all walked away full of knowledge. And food. Full full.
