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.
A must do in Athens!!! Our tour was highly personalized and we got to see the true Athens!! Would highly recommend!!!
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.
Awesome food tour, awesome food, great knowledge and company of guide with ample opportunities to buy products you take and take them home to share with your fellow foodies. Best foodie tour we have taken anywhere.
We had a really special afternoon with our guide Anabelia. She was fun, informative and knowledgeable about the food and the area, we took in the markets and small independent retailers selling spices, sausages, cheese and organic Greek produce. Highly recommend!
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!
Kostas was the best!!! He was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, professional, funny and just an all around great guy!! We went to places that we wouldn't have found on our own. It was definitely one of the highlights of our Greece trip! :
Had an amazing food tour with Kostas and his associate Anna. Kostas was very knowledgable and took us to some amazing places where we may not have ventured on our own, but certainly would now that we have gone once. Definitely be prepared to have a variety of food for a few hours...it seems like we never stopped eating! A great tour with a great guide!
GREAT TOUR !!! Our guide Costa was the best. Really took time to explain Greek culture and food and took us to some really great places. Areas we would have never been to just as a tourist in paris. Highly recommend this tour !!!!!!!!!
Very enjoyable time sampling the culinary delights of Athens. Tonia was extremely helpful also with the history of how various foods and spices came to be popular. It was both a relaxing and extremely interesting way to spend the afternoon.
We've done food tours in lots of cities like New York, New Orleans, etc. This was by far the best tour we've ever been on and the biggest reason was Vivien Vivian?. She was AMAZING in every way. Knowledgable, friendly, eager to serve, she kept us on pace without pushing us. All six of us agreed best ever! The stops and food were very good especially the pastourma and no bad experiences or food at any of them. But, again, the difference was Vivien. Ask for her and you can't go wrong!
Had such an enjoyable time on this tour!! Vivian was probably the best tour guide I have EVER come across! She was so patient with all the questions I had. She knew her food! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for foodies who really appreciate open markets, mom and pop joints and excellent service. I was like a lost child in a sweet shop! Vivian even made us a proper Greek salad after buying the cherry tomatoes together from the local market. The personalized touch just added another level to the whole food tour of Athens. A
This was our favorite tour of our whole vacation!!! Vivian was phenomenal! It wound up being just our tour guide, and my husband and I - very exclusive tour! She started by asking about our food preferences and allergies, and then customized the tour to our likes. She made us feel so special and waited on us like a consummate host! We ate so much incredible food, there was no need for dinner later. I feel I really got to know Greece through this tour and we got a behind-the-scenes look at the Greek culture. Vivian was the absolute best tour guide we've ever had!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Vivian. It was a hot day in Athens but we didn't notice as we went from cafe to coffee shop to market to deli. Vivian was very organised and thoughtful, giving us water at each stop and telling us stories of her childhood in Athens. We definitely recommend.
This tour was fantastic.
Vivienne from Athens Walks was such a good guide.
- She took one look at our family of 4 adults and promised to feed the boy adult every 7 mins.
- She was also able to cater for the dietary equipments of the girl adult.
- She was able to give lots of recommendations for our remaining days in Athens.
- She fed us until we could eat no more.
We loved Vivienne and we loved the tour. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND !!!!!!!!!!
A fantastic tour with our lovely guide, Vivian. We visited un-touristy shops and markets and tasted delicious food that we would never have found on our own. The history of the food and its significance in Greece was just as interesting as the food itself (of which we ate an immense amount!).
Wherever we travel we always do a food tour.Costa our guide was excellent! He showed us parts of Athens we would not have normally ventured to and treated us to some great authentic Greek cuisine.
This was the highlight of our trip to Athens! Tonia while being an amazing guide, is also an Ancient Greece tutor for young students. She shared as much as we wanted to know about the food's history, the gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece and where we should eat and what we should see on our trip. She made our trip so memorable in many ways. Loved her, the food and the tour. Thanks, Tonia!
Excellent tour by Vivian!
She is well versed with the culinary delights of athens and the city itself. She also recommended several places to visit etc
koulóuria loukoumades , oils, coffee , pastirma a big food overload.
DO SKIP breakfast :
Good tip is to save some of the delights and snack on them for sunset trip to one of the hills Philopappos, lycabettus etc

We would highly recommend this tour... Kostas, our guide for the afternoon, is really passionate about Greek food and took us to some hidden, local places we would never have found on our own. For really tasty Greek food and local culture this tour is a must!
This tour was an excellent way to try many different traditional Greek foods and get an understanding of the historical and cultural context of each. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting and entertaining.
