Jeff_G, Dec 2023
Loved the food choices. Our guide was personable and energetic. She provided a lot of information about Greek food and also history and culture. We had the opportunity to meet people from other countries that were part of the tour and enjoyed Greek hospitality for an afternoon. Well done!
Must do
Brad_S, Dec 2023
Amazing and fun interactive way to taste the food and explore the taste of Greece. The guide was amazing and fun she made the night.
Our family of 10 (ages 23-77) all enjoyed this food walking tour.

I thought Yoda (sic) was a great tour guide. She is passionate, entertaining, and polished. Our family of 10 (ages 23-77) all enjoyed ths food walking tour. The other thing we liked about the tour was it familirized our famiyl with the areas outside of Plaka.
Yummy and informative tradional Greek food experience!
Maureen_L, Nov 2023
Our guide provided the most delicious education of authentic traditional Greek food that one could hope for. We tasted and ranked olive oils with an olive oil Somalia, experienced the food and were provided Greek history and cultural insights from a local who not only loves her country but especially Athens. Thank you Antonio for an unforgettable experience!
Come prepared to feast
Rachel_S, Nov 2023
This tour was perfect for anyone who loves to eat and wants to try local bites. We had so much food and loved everything we tried - especially the tapas spot and olive oil lesson with Erika. Our guide, Goti (spelling?), was so sweet and knowledgeable. We loved her bonus information about the city and its history mixed with the food recommendations. We especially loved that she let us try (a couple times!) her favorite shot with Greek liquor and honey. There is a lot of food especially on the back end, so come prepared to great!
Yummy food walking tour.
Brenda_R, Nov 2023
Yota was delightful. What an experience. So much food. Best way to get familiar with the local foods. And was so much fun meeting new people. Group was small which was very nice too.
Fabulous food walking tour!!
Heather_P, Oct 2023
Such a fabulous night of food, history, and an experience provided by our Excellent guide! Fotis is likely not how we spell his name but pronounced similar! He was entertaining and we enjoyed him immensely!
Best Food Tour!
Sheryl_O, Oct 2023
This is the best tour I have ever been on. Antonia is so passionate about Greece. Telling us about the streets, areas and history. The food places were amazing. She easily adapted to find another restaurant when some guests didn’t want spicy food

A great time spent eating a variety of different Greek cuisine. Got to try desserts, alcohol, snacks, and entrees. Left feeling full. Would recommend if you want to try different local foods and are short on time or don't know where to start.
Seeing, eating, walking and talking through central Athens
Robin_V, Oct 2023
Our guide Yota (spelling?) was very energetic, informative and enthusiastic. The walking was comfortable and we tried a good variety of Greek snack or lunch type foods. I was absolutely full before we made it to deserts.
Carefully Consider Tour
Jane_M, Oct 2023
The guide was great. However, do not take this tour on a Saturday or Friday night because it's large group (12+) and crowds are huge -- we could not hear what guide was saying 90% of the time. Also, because crowds both inside and outside restaurants were extremely large, it was very difficult following guide because she wore no distinguishing clothing or hot and did not carry a flag. It was easy to get lost. Tour starts at 6:30pm and is 4 hours. Therefore, if you're traveling )as most people were on the tour) it makes for a long night, especially if you need to get up early the next day. Finding a cab back to where you are staying would also be a serious consideration at 10:30pm. Lots of walking and does not end where it began. We would not do this tour again but would consider an afternoon tour.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your review. Our group size (not more than 10- 12 ppl), as well as the starting time 6.30 and ending time 10.30 pm (duration 4 h.) both are mentioned before you make the reservation, so that you are fully aware in advance. The ending point is not the same as the starting point which is also mentioned in advance. The ending point is very centrally located and there is a taxi stand. You can ask your tour leader for instructions, all of them are always more than willing to help. Athens is a city that stays up till late, so even after 10.30 pm there is no issue finding a taxi. For travelers who consider 10.30 pm a late ending, we would recommend instead our street food tour https://www.viator.com/tours/Athens/Evening-Street-Food-Tour/d496-150768P8 that ends at 9.30 pm and lasts 3h. or our afternoon tour https://www.viator.com/tours/Athens/Taste-Athens-Food-Walk-Market-Visit-and-Delicious-Meals/d496-150768P1 . We do many stops on our tour both for food and in between them around the city, so that our tour leader makes sure everybody is following. Please make sure that you stick to our small group. Especially in crowded places on a Saturday night you can easily get distracted, eg in case you would like to take any pictures or need to make a short stop, please always ask help from your tour leader.
Food, food, food

Best Experience in Athens!
Stacey_S, Oct 2023
This was the best thing we did in Athens. We got to try so many foods and our guide also told us a lot of history about the areas we visited. The olive oil tasting was my favorite part. I learned so much! All of the food was amazing and our guide was friendly, helpful, and entertaining.
This tour is an Athens must!!!
Lisa_K, Oct 2023
Giota (Yota) as amazing and so full of knowledge. She was fantastic! The food places she and your company chose were outstanding.
Fabulous Greek Food Tour!!
Judy_S, Oct 2023
We had never been to Greece before and wanted to experience some truly authentic Greek food. Jenny was an excellent tour guide and explained everything in great detail. She was fantastic.
Highly recommended
janawati, Oct 2023
This small group food tour was exactly as advertised. The food wad excellent and there was plenty. Potos was amazing. He took us around 4 neighborhoods in central Athens where we stopped at different places to taste various dishes. He even taught us a few Greek phrases. There were only 9 people on the tour therefore we had lots of attention from the tour guide. We felt safe, the tour guide was professional and full of energy, we learned lots and finished the tour happy with full bellies.
Book now thank me later
Jennifer_M, Oct 2023

Amazing food your in Athens!
Roberto_M, Oct 2023
The Greek good tour was a highlight of our trip to Athens. Our tour guide Fotos was amazing! He was truly the best part of the tour. The food was increíble and we would totally do this again. Highly recommended
Make sure your meeting place is well-defined.
Virginia_G, Oct 2023
Our instructions for the meeting place were very vague and as a result we missed the guide. We had a terrible time trying to get the name of the second restaurant stop because the representative on the phone was extremely rude. But the good news is, we were able to meet up with the group at the second restaurant stop. The guide was extremely nice, knowledgeable, fun, and entertaining. She even brought us food from the first stop that we missed. Great time!
