We took this tour on our first full day in Athens with our guide Kostas. We had a great experience by learning the local foods, customs, and pronunciations. We enjoyed stopping in eateries where foods were made by local residents. The tour gave us a good sense of the layout of Plaka and surrounding neighborhoods.

What an amazing experience! My mom and I thought this was one of our favorite experience while in Athens. We learned about the people, culture and history. And all while sampling delicious food from all parts of the city and getting a bit of exercise via walking - the meant and fish markets and fruit and veg stalls, the coffee house, the all of it was fantastic. And the LUKAMADES. Heavenly!! I can't recommend this tour enough.

Had an absolutely wonderful time. Next week when I rent a flat for 14 days in Plaka, I will be going to those places we went. I would do it again, and I will definitely recommend the tour and tour guide to others.
Ευχαριστώ πολύ, Kostas!

This tour was a high point in our stay in Athens. We Our wonderful guide, Anna, took us off the tourist track and showed us aspects of Athens that we would probably have missed otherwise.

This was the best for tour we had got. Our food guide Ana was amazing. An Argentinian living in Greece for 5 years, Ana knew the Greek food in good detail and was also able to give an outsider and #39;s perspective. The choice of places gave us a good feel of regular and off beat food and drinks. Try it out!

This tour is well worth the money. Our guide, Constance, took us out of the tourist areas to try places we never would have found without him. We got to try some coffee, desserts, meats/cheese, and walk through the local markets. He made us a traditional greek salad from local ingredients, while we enjoyed a glass of wine. Constance also gave us a brief background on all of the areas that we were walking through. I was not able to eat the rest of the day because I was so full when the tour was over. Come hungry folks!

Best tour we've ever taken, and we have done 25 tours in multiple European cities. Costa was our guide, and also the owner of this tour company. We two American couples, ages 60-something. Costa delivered as advertised, and a whole lot more. We toured small restaurants and specialty food shops, sampling plates of food at each stop. Also toured the meat, fish, and farmers markets - a very visual and local experience. What made this tour so special was Costa's world experiences and knowledge of foods, peoples, history, and cultures, which he wonderfully worked into his commentaries as we walked about and/or sat and talked while eating. His tour price included the cost of all foods sampled at the half dozen or so stops he paid at each stop. If you can only fit in one tour while in Athens, this is the one to book!
