    Experiencing Traditional Greek Food

    Constantine gave us so much information and love of the Greek Culinary Food. Enjoyed each stop and all the dishes that were served to us. He was so interesting and gave us his love of the Greek Culture. This was the best tour yet!! Loved it!!
    Fantastic family style feast!

    This tour with Konstantinos was a real highlight of our time in Athens. He was extremely knowledgeable, warm and friendly. The food was amazing and we re-visited a number of vendors that we went to on the tour. Such a great day.

    A wonderful guide shared the bountiful Greek food
    Josephine_E, Oct 2022
    I wasn't sure what to expect, but in this tour, the guide treated us to historical insights of Greek food while we ate a full size souvlaki, had olive oil tasting, and two sit down meals. There was wine and mistiha liquor in every other stop There was a bakery and unfiltered Greek coffee stop. We were happy and full especially for those of us not used to liquor. We tasted kolivo too. I did the October 21 morning tour. Our guide was the best!
