The photogenic alleys we traveled to each eating spot made the labyrinthine adventure so fun. Trying food & drink was a fun way to get to know the strangers in the tour.

Amazing Food Tour With Ilias!!!
Rian_G, Sep 2023
Ilias really made this tour AMAZING! His love for Greece and food really makes this an experience! We explored food away from the “tourist” area and had so much fun learning about Greek culture. The food overall was ok (I’d say 3 out of 5) but talking and connecting with Ilias and the two other people on the tour really made this the awesome experience I experienced! Highly recommend this tour with Ilias!

Excellent Food Tour
RichardM_C, Sep 2023
Our tour guide, Eleftheria, was delightful! She was very knowledgeable and took us to many authentic local restaurants, which included foods and beverages from breakfast through dinner and dessert. The restaurants were easily within walking distance from each other. Walking helped digestion in between restaurants. The food was outstanding! After over 3 hours, we were stuffed! I highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Richard! We're thrilled that you had such an amazing time exploring the local culinary delights with Eleftheria. We greatly appreciate your recommendation, and we hope to welcome you on another Secret Food Tour in one of our 60+ cities worldwide.
