A great evening. Places were lively, food was terrific, and our guide was a lot of fun. A memorable Saturday evening in Athens!
Really fills you up

Our guide was Anna and she was amazing. Giving the history of food evolution and mixing of cuisines across different timelines. Come empty stomach and enjoy the wholesome food on this tour
Food tour… also intro to Athens city center
Maylin_T, Dec 2023
Eleni our guide was really nice. She was very knowledgeable about the city. The food offerings on the tour were good and a nice variety. We did the tour on the day of arrival. I am happy we did it then. It give us a good intro to the city.
Great tour

Christina was very nice and showed us around with samples of different Greek cuisine. It was an appropriate amount of small portions to last throughout the tour without feeling overfilled. She was also very kind to send us suggestions as to what to do/visit/eat in Athens for our remaining stay in Athens.
Remarkable Experience
Marvin_W, Nov 2023
Omg it was outstanding! Our guide Christina was so professional, fun and knowledgeable about her roots in Athens. She even gave recommendations of what more to do while in Athens. I would recommend her to anyone that comes to Athens, Greece. She was magical.
Great food in Athens
glenn_f, Nov 2023
She took us to places that we never would have found on our own. She was also very personal and related to us what it was like to grow up in the region. Thank you. Zeffi.
Great night in Athens
Brian_F, Nov 2023
Anna was very knowledgeable about the different districts we went to and the food for each and there originally.
Delicious, not-to-be-missed Evening Food Tour!
George_G, Nov 2023
I have had great success finding really great tours through Viator and this great Athens evening food tour was no exception. The instructions on where to meet were really specific and put me at ease. Our guide, Eleni, was so wonderful and personable. It felt more like spending the evening with a friend than taking a tour. Eleni was passionate about food and Athens. She was terrific with questions and really paid great attention to everyone’s needs. My group was a family of five plus me, a solo traveler. What a great group of people. We bonded early and really enjoyed each other’s company throughout the evening. We made five (I think) stops in our evening and sampled traditional Pork Gyros, Spinach and Cheese Pie, Peyniril (greek pizza), a full sit down meal with a dozen or more options (I chose the stuffed tomatoes), and ended up our evening enjoying Loukoumades (Greek donuts with honey and cinnamon). It was a lot of food. I’ve been on food tours before in other cities and while you get to sample a lot, I often am hungry at the end of the tour. That wasn’t the case with this tour. We had more than enough to eat and the evening was well-paced, informative, and really very fun! If you take this tour, you’ll be very pleased. And if you are lucky enough to get Eleni as your guide, you’ll come away feeling like you’ve made a friend before the night is done. Eleni set me up to have a terrific trip. I booked this tour on my first night in town and these recommendations were a great introduction to foods I would try and places I would return to throughout my trip. I highly recommend this tour and, especially, Eleni.
So glad we did this!!!

Fun walking food tour with a small group. We tasted several local specialties, and all were good. No shortage of food to be had.
Evening food tour
Irene_C, Oct 2023
Our tour guide was amazing.. very energetic and gave us lots of history on Greece and the foods we were tryiing.. maybe after the meats, cheeses, olives, and wine.. the ‘sweet snack’ could be a little smaller, so after the pizza.. there is still room for dinner and dessert.. it was one of our favorite tours.. everything was delicious!! Thank you for an enjoyable evening!!
Ate so much, but all was delicious
Gina_C, Oct 2023
By the time I took this tour I had already been in Greece for over 3 weeks. What I enjoyed most about this tour is that it brought understanding to what I've been eating. I highly recommend taking this tour early into your Greece visit so that you can better understand what you are eating and inspiration to explore other authentic food choices. the tour guide was knowledgable and fun to be with.
Food and wine evening/ tour out with colleagues
Alison_W, Oct 2023
Our guide was excellent - he understood exactly what we wanted - time with each other and a food and drink experience .
Compared to other food...
Paul_G, Oct 2023
Compared to other food tours we joined during a recent European vacation, the Athens evening food tour was mediocre, at best. There did not seem to be any advance preparations with the restaurants that we visited, requiring our guide to try to obtain and to put together tables sufficient for our group only upon our arrival. The organization was haphazard, a factor that detracted from our overall experience.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Dear Paul, Thank you for your feedback. To my understanding, it seems that the only thing that bothered you is that our guide tried to accommodate you the best way possible by setting the tables for your own convenience. Please note that we make reservations wherever possible, however some places don't accept bookings. Also, they may be quite busy the time we visit them therefore we always advise our guides to make all necessary arrangements once they get there so that our guests have the best service possible. And that includes arranging the tables, if necessary, since this way you and the rest of our guests won't have to wait longer. I am sure you must have been in busy restaurants waiting for a table and we all know that it can be a quite unpleasant situation. So, we try to avoid that by helping the restaurant staff. In most of the cases our guides efforts and service are highly appreciated by our guests. But obviously in your case it wasn't. Kind regards, Pascal

Dimitri was great - he gave us interesting information but also understood that we just wanted to spend time sometime chatting with each other - we were a group of work colleagues who had been at a conference
Wonderful food tour!
Ansley_M, Oct 2023
Great food tour! Dimitri was a fabulous tour guide. Great way to see the city of Athens. Food was delicious, and at each restaurant experience we had a nice table reserved for us.
Fun night and delicious food!
Elyssa_S, Oct 2023
My boyfriend and I only had 2 nights in Athens and wanted to make the most out of it. This tour did not disappoint! Our guide, Dimitri was awesome and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and the spots we went to were cool. Accommodating for us as pescatarians too. Definitely come hungry!
Wonderful cultural experience!
