Authentic Greek Food
SandraK_E, May 2023
Great food, wonderful guide, and an authentic Greek experience. My husband and I actually missed the message telling us our meeting location had changed, but Viator and Ava waited for us and gave us directions to find the new location. We didn’t miss any part of the Classic Tour. We had some mobility issues, but Ava accommodated them. Can’t miss with this tour.
More than just a food tour!

Anna gave us a very memorable experience that was surprisingly more than just a food tour! Her familiarity with Athens, traditional foods and the people who make them was impressive. She introduced us to many parts of the City as well as the food, and we were able to return on our own. The very last thing we did before leaving for the airport was walk to the place where she introduced us to yogurt with honey & nuts, and we made it our last taste of Athens before we left! Highly recommend this wonderful experience with Anna!
A good survey and introduction to Greek foods.

The Central Market covered the way meat, fish and cheeses were prepared and sold to stores and restaurants. The overall tour covered the typical examples of Greek foods, coffee and pastries. The guide was knowledgeable and caring. There was plenty to eat.
A must for food lovers

Anna was a great guide providing us with not only a variety of tastings (more than we could eat) but a detailed history of the food. She adapted the tour to help suit my dietary needs and was happy to answer any and all questions. We visited some great places littered throughout the centre, highlighting some of the best cuisine Athens has to offer. A must if your in Athens
