This was by far the best food tour ever! Dorela was a wonderful guide and we would recommend this tour highly. We have done food tours in 5-6 different cities and we’ve never had so many varieties. A must-do in Athens.

Good, but not sure the gourmet bit is worth it
Karl_M, Mar 2024
Knowledgable guide Tasted several local Greek foods (and drinks) , plenty to eat Only 3 stars not sure the difference between a normal and gourmet food tour, the final tasting of different olive oils & vinegars seemed a bit of an unnecessary add on And we had a daughter of one guest on our tour and they were unable to supply a non alcoholic alternative (apart from water)
Delicious from the beginning till the End!

Eirene was by far the most fun and knowledgeable person. She was super friendly, patience and kind. She took us to many spots that me as a tourist would never find. Thank you so much beautiful! My first visit to Greece was a success :D

Do this first in Athens….

This tour was so enjoyable. Learned so much about Greek food and wine. Got to sample so much. Very generous with everything. Our guide Irene was a gem. Knowledgeable Funny. Excellent story teller. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Fun way to take a tour AND eat!
Patrick_W, Oct 2023
Do not eat breakfast!!! The food provided on the tour is more than an average meal, so save some room! The tour may be a bit much for anyone with mobility issues since the tour is held on a brisk pace.
Panos is a great guide!
Peterbrehmj, Aug 2023
Our guide, Panos, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took our group around Athens to enjoy some traditional and less touristy foods that would be harder for us to find on our own. He was charismatic and funny, and also accommodating to the needs of the group! It was very hot when we went and he gave us extra bottled water to keep our group hydrated.
Wonderful event.
Andrew_B, Aug 2023
Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We got to experience so many different foods and drinks with our friends and made new friends along the way. The distance between stops was not too far and the amount of time at each stop was just right.
Tour with Irene. A++++
Christina_S, Jul 2023
Great tour, Irene was awesome, informative, funny, entertaining and responsible. We had a great time and the food, history and highlights were plentiful, delicious and interesting. Highly recommended, enjoy!
Great 4 hour lunch-time food tour
James_W, Apr 2023
This 4 hour food tour was one of the best we have ever had! Katherine was extremely knowledgeable and had the tour of the Central Market and Greek coffee tasting was very enlightening!
Great variety of foods
Richard_B, Dec 2022
Catherine was an excellent guide talking about the different types of food we were eating. The food selections were very good . Afterwards ,we had no reason to eat dinner that night. We even tried Turkish Coffee (excellent flavor). Trip was a good length without any stairs. Well worth the cost!
Fabulous Experience
Lisa_R, Aug 2022

Eat like a local
Marvin_M, Jul 2018
This tour is a MUST! We were able to see, touch, and taste a bit everything! Not just the tourist area but outside of it as well. I loved doing my favorite thing... EATING! I absolutely loved the speciality market called Panteopolion located in Sofokleos 1. We got to taste olive oil, vinegar, cheese, wine, Greek yogurt with honey, and then made a salad. Best vinegar I’ve had in my life!!!! We also got to walk through the local meat market, fish market, and farmers market. Loved seeing all different spices and nuts. The Greek coffee was an awesome treat, as well as, the charcuterie and yummy desserts. Ana was our tour guide and she was fantastic. There was just so much to see and I have a piece of Athens with me forever.
