Our tour guide was excellent and very personable. I recommend Dimitri anytime for such a tour. He was able to educate us on the rich Greek history of architecture throughout the city, the great good, culture, and Greek alphabet!! You can't go wrong taking the food tour with him. Every place we went was spectacular and the food was well prepared. We were in the heart of Athens and felt like locals walking around with him.

Great Experience
Stephen_M, Apr 2024
Dionysia was a great host and met us in different location just to save us time walking. We experienced the flavor of the city from the open air markets to the quiet cafe. The numerous tastings and the explanations of the food were highly educational. We highly recommend her much better than her brother’s tour. lol her brother also has tours. Great experience!
Amazing tour
Christian_B, Apr 2024
This was a great tour. Voula was our tour guide and she was fantastic! She was very friendly and personable. She was extremely knowledgeable about the food and history of the area. I definitely recommend doing this tour. You will have a lovely experience.

A good way to explore

Nasir took us to some hidden gems! He gave us lots of background information and helped us navigate the crazy streets of Athens. The food was great!
Great food and cultural information
Julio_R, Apr 2024
Manos was an excellent guide who not only shared good local food with us but also showed us the local neighborhoods in Athens. He shared a large amount of cultural background that we found very interesting and informative. That was a big bonus to the great food we experienced.
This is not a food tour.
Eilis_M, Apr 2024
This tour was advertised as ten tastings with drinks. It ended up being a walking history tour of Athens neighborhoods. We only stopped at 2 places and only meat was ordered. We are not vegetarians but more balance would have been nice. We definitely did not get 10 tastings. A total of 4 small meat dishes were ordered and we walked A LOT without stopping to eat. The second (and last) place was extremely casual street food where we waited forever for food without anything to drink. After over three hours we asked the tour guide to end it. We did not want to go on another 45 minute walk with nothing to eat or drink again. We ended up buying our own dinners after spending a lot of money on a mostly food-less tour
Worth the walk
Ali_D, Mar 2024
Great guide. Great day. Lots of food & laughter. My hubby and i loved the Deli the best. The olives where amazing
Wonderful food experience
Sema_P, Mar 2024
Our tour guide was Fitouri. He was very knowledge about the area and gave us a variety of Greek dishes we would not pick if we went our own to the restaurants. He was friendly and talkative and very engage in the group. He asked about allergies and was conscious throughout to accommodate all people. The only issue was the waiting for tables due to increase congestion and crowds from the nearby parade during the day.
Great experience!
Michael_W, Mar 2024
All great local tastings. We experienced tastes we may never have found on our own. The passion for food and cooking shown through with our guide. Fantastic experience!
Limited food options....
Tasha_T, Mar 2024
Limited food options. Seemed extremely disorganized. Guides were ok but if stops were full they were removed from itinerary.
Won’t recommend it
Ramiro_C, Mar 2024
Guy was very nice; but is not worth the price! Our tasting was fully covered in the first half an hour already!
Yummy
Carrie_M, Mar 2024
We went out with Markim, who was a delightful and intertaining guide. We started off with slovaki and Greek beer, then went for coffee in a hidden palace, then some amazing Gelato, before we went into a bakery for a whole bunch of yummy treats (peach juice with honey, baklava, cheese pies, spinach pies, and more. Overall a wonderful experience.
Walking food tour of Athens
Lewis_C, Mar 2024
Hi food, walking tour was outstanding. We had the opportunity to visit the local markets. Our tour guide was most informative and helpful. We enjoyed a myriad of taste of foods. I would highly recommend Dionysis. His knowledge of the local food scene was exceptional.
Places I'd never find as a Tourist...
Tess_D, Feb 2024
Tatialena was a fantastic guide! Everywhere she took us was family owned or very old, or both. We tried a variety of traditional Greek foods and drinks, at places the locals go. Such wonderful food, augmented by Tatialena's wonderful stories, knowledge of the area, history, and culture of Athens and Greece. She made our tour super fun and I will recommend this to everyone I know heading to Athens.
I wish there was more...
Katherine_P, Feb 2024
I wish there was more transparency about the type of food we were to have. While our guide Tatielena was amazing and very knowledgeable, it was mainly a street food tour. For her I would give an unreserved 5 stars but for the experience as a whole I would give 3 stars. We had a mezze plate to share for 3 people, a koulouri each, shared 2 phyllo (spanikopita type things), a souvlaki each, shared a loukoumades). We paid $80 per person, I suspect Viator takes a healthy chunk of the fee. Because I would be surprised if the food was even 15 Euros per person. If I had to do over again, I would find a private tour guide and not use a middle man, I would imagine that we would have experienced a better selection of food for that price point.
Reasonable
Richard_S, Feb 2024
Learning the history ancient to modern of the people of Athens was the best bit. We did only experience 7 tastings and paid for 10 ? Not the guides fault but we’d already tasted ‘Gyros’ , also maybe we should of had another drink!
Great tour, great food.
Kristine_M, Feb 2024
Guide was good. A little too soft spoken but her knowledge was great. Went to a crazy amazing place that I would have walked by, didn't even realize it was a restaurant. Would have appreciated knowing up front where we were going. Also, it seemed much shorter. Stated 4 hours, we were done in 2... not sure if it was us and eating fast or we missed something. Overall very much enjoyed and was super stuffed at the end.
A Few of Hours with a Friend in Athens
Massoud_G, Feb 2024
I took this tour to learn what locals (Greeks) eat daily, how they prepare their food, where they shop for food, etc. I got exactly what I took the tour for. Our tour guide, Ouala, made the tour so much more pleasant by explaining the history of a few sites we passed by. Experience included tastes of snacks, drinks, and main courses. Following Ouala and listening to her was such a pleasant and beautiful experience that my wife and I felt like we spent a few hours with a friend in Athens.
Fun food tour
Lillian_R, Jan 2024
Voila was an excellent guide. We enjoyed her knowledge and her sense of humor. The food was very good.
I highly recommend this food tour.
Melani_M, Jan 2024
Yorgos was delightful. He took us to special places: the only gyro place in Athens that makes its own pita. The only ice cream place that also makes its own cream filled donuts. We had fun, good food and good company! Yorgos was kind enough to let us book for New Year’s Eve and made sure we made it to every place he wanted to go before they closed. I highly recommend this food tour.
