This was, by far, the best culinary walking tour I've ever done. Our Guide, Despina, was OUTSTANDING, and you could tell her years of experience doing this tour, plus the thought and time she put into it, set it apart from the rest. She explained every aspect of Greek eating as we sampled a traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner. Explained the origins of food and herbs. We sampled vinegar and oils, liquors, spices, meats and deserts and heard the history of each. But best of all she had an amazing way of getting each of us to relate to everyday life, and eating, in Greece. I rate it: 5-star. If you have an interest in food, cooking or history (I love all 3) - don't miss this one!
Very informational about local cusine and the visits to the markets were awsome.
