This was an excellent way to experience authentic Greek food. Our guide, Anna, was great. Very knowledgeable. She gave us lots of information not just about food but also Greece in general. Really enjoyed Anna and her tour.
Great way to explore Athens
Cody_C, Feb 2024
What an amazing way to see a different side of Athens! Our host was perfect. It did take the full 4 hours but every place we stopped was so good. My team loved this trip.
Wonderful Experience
Chase_W, Feb 2024
Amazing Amazing Amazing! We came to greece for vacation and thought it would be fun to try all the foods of the country. We had no idea that the experience we had with Catherine would be so awesome and truly educational and exciting. I recommend this tour to anyone if you want to get a feel of what it’s like to be a greek local for a day
You Haveta Go!!
Denise_M, Feb 2024
This tour was outstanding, and I highly it!!! You have to come hungry. Dorela was our guide who was very knowledgeable and such a wonderful person. I'd go on this tour again in a heartbeat!
Delicious and amazing food tour
Jody_S, Feb 2024
Our tour guide was amazing! Well worth every penny...or euro! We experienced food that we might have missed without the tour. When they say to come hungry, that mean it. The food was incredible.
Great food tour
Hilary_B, Feb 2024
What a wonderful tour and guide! Our guide's name was Dorelea (I hope I spelled her name correctly). She was very knowledgeable, kind, and had a great sense of humor. We stopped at several places and had a variety of food. My favorite was the stop with what I would call the Greek equivalent of charcuterie. I had 3 kinds of fish, calamari, mussels, bean salad, sausage, a type of zucchini bread with tzatziki, a feta spread, and bread. We also had ouzo. We had a sample of great Greek food at all the stops. You will not leave this tour hungry. We learned about the Greek food and culture. I would recommend this to all. It is a must do tour!
A great way to start a trip to a new city
John_R, Feb 2024
This was the first tour we took when we landed in Athens. We always try to do a food tour first, so we have the opportunity to experience the best food throughout the trip. On this tour we sampled a variety of foods and by the end we had eaten plenty. We learned about Greek eating habits, we visited food markets and stopped into shops that I wouldn't have thought about, had we not taken this tour. One tip; don't eat before this tour, you will eat a lot-or at least have the opportunity to, and you don't want to miss out.
Great tour.
Debbie_P, Jan 2024
We really enjoyed the food tour. Anabelia did a wonderful job giving the history of the food, buildings we ate in and passed by during the tour. Even though we got a little wet from the intermittent rain showers,our spirts were never dampened due to a great guide. The food was exceptional and be sure to bring your appetite.
Do not skip this!
Marlia_P, Jan 2024
We loved everything! From the delicious pies (Creme Royale), to the traditional coffee at Mokka Coffee(super tasty); from the greek donuts (loukoumades) at Krinos to the deliciously simple meze at Tis theatrou to steki to the wine/vinegar/oil tasting, everything was amazing! Thank you to Anna, our guide, who was so nice and provided us with lots of useful recommendations! I totally recommend this experience!
Great experience!
Sandra_C, Jan 2024
I've done several food tours and they are always the highlight of my travels. Anna was a wonderful tour guide, friendly and respectful to everyone. I highly recommend experiencing this cultural tour whenever you travel. One of the best values out there!
Do not leave Greece without doing a food tour!!😁
Marceline_G, Jan 2024
We booked a private tour and it was awesome! Our guide was so fun and knowledgeable. The food was plentiful and great.. there was a wide variety of food to try and we learned a lot about Greece along the way. .
Do this tour!
Tony_G, Jan 2024
Tour was excellent. Tons of food, explored a part of Athens off the tourist trail, and learned about the local cuisine. This is a “must do” as soon as you get to Athens. I felt like I was taking a leap of faith when I booked this tour, but this tour ended up being one of the top highlights of the whole trip. Our tour guide was relaxed, attentive, and mindful that everyone was having a good time.
A must do! Tour guide...
Elizabeth_W, Jan 2024
A must do! Tour guide Anna was amazing. The tour was a perfect length of time and there was plenty of food! The tour guide was able to respect our dietary restrictions with ease. Great food and culture history along the way made the experience that much better.
