This was the best and most memorable experience of all my time in Athens. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the food and culture. Pascal is extremely knowledgeable, generous, and really fun to hang out with! I felt like I was out with an old friend. And the food? Amazing. Make sure you’re hungry! This is a true food lover’s experience. I’m a professional chef and I was thrilled with the insider’s access to the real culinary Athens.

Definitely recommend this dining experience. We had a fun time tasting so many different foods! Our guide was fantastic, and really made the experience special! We think her name was Christina!
Worth it!
Jenna_B, Feb 2024
Such a special treat! We loved learning about the customs, culture and of course tasting the delicious food of Greece! Our guide was sensitive to our dietary needs and made the trip really special.
Awesome experience with a large variety of food!
Darlene_K, Feb 2024
Our guide Christina was amazing and made sure we were well taken care of! We were stuffed by the end of the tour from trying all the local favorites: loukamades, gyros, Greek salad, cheese pies, fried calamari and more, was enough for lunch and dinner!
Food tour review
Katie_P, Feb 2024
Cristina made the tour really interesting, fun and informative There was probably too much food early on- would have liked more traditional drinks such as ouzo, retsina etc. The pastry place was amazing …….got to see the man making the filo- the nut place was good too and once again shout out to Cristina
Real Food in the Real Athens
Denise_C, Dec 2023
I loved the leisurely pace of the tour. We ate a lot of delicious food at unpretentious places. Heleni was an excellent guide, doling out bits of history, fine accompaniment to our delicious bites of real Greek food. I especially appreciated the walk through the market. It was exciting to buy a few things alongside Athenians.
Terrific Tour
Jeff_P, Nov 2023
We would highly recommend this tour….Christina was fabulous and took us to so many places we would have not known to go to…we were stuffed after the tour and all stops were delicious!
Best Food Tour in Athens!
Cathy_F, Nov 2023
Christina made our food tour extra special with her extensive knowledge of Greek food and history. We made numerous stops as she really wanted to share all her favorite Greek foods with us. No one went away hunger! We did the tour on a Sunday and didn't miss not going to the market. Exceptional experience with a small group of 9. Great value for the price. We even went back to one of our stops the next day.
Good food, great guide
Carol_K, Nov 2023
Zefi was the best. I took the tour on a Sunday with pretty much everything closed but she did her best to still show us a good time.
Gem of a tour!
Edward_S, Nov 2023
We had a great afternoon with Cristiana. Her arrival was prompt and her experience and leadership were easily detected. The walking food tour was like being with an old friend and catching up with each other. It was great to learn of her neighborhood, not just the food, but street art and local life. We learn so much about Greek food and Greek daily life. We left with our bellies stuffed and our minds full of memories!
Wonderful tour, highly recommend!
KA_R, Nov 2023
Christina was our guide and we had a wonderful tour! She took us places we NEVER would have found on our own and we tried so many new foods we didn't know about. She knew the history of every place we visited and thoroughly explained all the foods and drinks we tried, along with personal stories of growing up with these foods and drinks. We highly recommend this tour, but do it early in your trip so you have time to revisit your favorites!
Delicious & highly recommended!
Zahraa_R, Nov 2023

Nancy_P, Oct 2023
What a wonderful tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about not only Greek food but the recent history of Athens. The food selection was terrific - not the usual gyro and souvlaki - but a selection of restaurants keeping traditional Greek food alive and up-to-date. Had a fantastic time.
Don’t miss this!!!!
Jamie_T, Oct 2023

Greta food and great way to see Athens. Our tour guide was super great and made a point to talk to and incorporate the whole group
Food was good, choice of restaurants not so much
Cherian_T, Oct 2023
Food was ok. The guide was very engaging and informative. One feedback would be I wish there was better choice of restaurants. One place beggars were coming up to the table and spoils the experience.
