Giota led us on a wonderful walking food tour of central Athens, in which we got to stop at 5 different local street food restaurants. The food was delicious and the tour was excellent. She was full of knowledge and connected the food to Greece’s history, and great us advice for exploring the rest of Athens and other cities in Greece. Definitely recommend!

Best Street Food Tour
Kim_L, Feb 2024
This tour was top-notch & Antonia was amazing & knowledgeable. She took her time & explained so much about Greek food, cooking & its roots. We learned so much & she was especially generous, giving us info & recommendations for the remainder of our trip to Naxos & Thessaloniki.
Tasty introduction to Athens street food
James_P, Jan 2024
This was a wonderful tour. Our very friendly guide, Fotis, spoke passionately and insightfully about each aspect of Greek cuisine we encountered. As a bonus, he also discussed other relevant points of local culture, with plenty of humour thrown in. It was a great way to discover authentic local dishes with great company.
Great tour!
Susan_F, Dec 2023
Lovely selection of food and interesting, enthusiastic guide. Nice pace, but totally full by the end. A little hard to hear the guid at times, maybe earphones next time? Though there was lots of time to chat with other guests.
Awesome food tour and guide

Very entertaining your experience!
Chris_D, Nov 2023
Phostis was an excellent guide! Extremely entertaining, funny, charming, and knowledgeable on the food scene. The food itself was decent but not memorable (you get what you pay for kind of scenario) so don't expect fine dining at a $50 price point. What you're paying for is the entertainment and walking tour insight, and that they indeed delivered! Next time, I would opt for a more expensive tour for better food options but I would still rate this experience 10/10 for the entertainment factor. If you don't know what to do at night and need a fun and less expensive option, this is it!
Great food tour in Athens!
David_Z, Oct 2023

Amazing value for money
EuniceAnne_I, Oct 2023
We were a small group and it was fun. All the food was delicious and our guide, Marina, was very knowledgeable and related history on many things.
Spectacular!
Kristine_Y, Oct 2023
Fotos (SP) was our guide for the food tour. He was very knowledgeable of the area, history and the food. He has a great personality and made the entire tour fun and informative. Besides all the great food we got to see many parts of the city that we otherwise would have missed.
Great food experiences
Jacquelyn_C, Oct 2023
We loved all the food stops, and EMI was a true Greek Goddess. She did a great job of sharing the true Greek food establishments as well as history of the area within Athens. The blend of savory and sweet was wonderful. Whoever gave a review that there wasn't enough food was very mistaken. All on our tour had more than we could finish.
Ideal start to your Greek experience
lynnemilford, Oct 2023
A great and valuble introduction to street food in Athens but with a fun filled and warmth that made us see how the food was part of the culture and Greek way of life
Fabulous Fortis Food Tour
Paul_C, Oct 2023
We did this on our first night in Athens and had the excellent Fortis as our guide. Knowledgeable, humorous and ensured everyone was looked after during the tour. Food choices and venues were spot on and the food! Well you'd better come hungry that's all I can say! The food tour was much more than any description could do justice too and Fortis provided not just the food facts but also the history and context for what you are sampling. If you enjoy food tours you already know how great they can be and this one is top notch. If you haven't yet discovered the fun food tours can be then stop reading and book this tour. You will not regret it. Fortis, ThankYou so much.
Fun, Tasty & informative!
Gianna_M, Oct 2023
Giota was a great guide. She took us all around Athens trying great classic Greek foods. The tour was prefect because we got to try a little of everything, that we probably wouldn’t have on our own. The portions were also very good size and we left the tour feeling very full. We also got to hear great stories and tales of Greek food and history. Highly would recommend this tour!
Great guide complimented by great food.
Richard_P, Oct 2023
Emi did a wonderful job of connecting Greek history w/the food being tasted. The food was excellent and there was more than enough for everyone.
The greek „pizza“ place...
Gabriele_N, Sep 2023
The greek „pizza“ place was very nice (and actually something new for us), the souvlaki place I didn’t like so much though. Guide was very nice and chatty Allover a nice experience, specially when you’re new to Greece
Great experience
Jennifer_P, Sep 2023
The guide was informative of the surroundings in Greece/Athens plus its history and culture. The tour guide explained each food and drink in detail. The guide was patient and excellent. I highly recommend it so one can learn some of foods in the Greek culture.
A highlight of our trip
Kathy_K, Sep 2023
Jenny was an amazing guide and her love of Athens and its food was clearly visible. We learned a lot from her and got to walk through several neighborhoods with her. We not only learned about food but also the culture and history of Greece. The tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend the experience.
Awesome
