Very Fun Day in Athens!
November 18, 2019
We loved this tour - we made about 8 different stops for different types of food which are typically eaten by Greeks. At each stop, we were treated very well and given lots of information about the food and culture. It was lots of fun and not as much walking as you would think for such a long tour. Just make sure you understand where the tour ends so you can get back to wherever needed. Ours didn't end in the same place it began!!

Most Amazing Culinary Tour
September 14, 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour in Athens. Our guide Sophia was great and really enjoyed talking about the local food and how best to enjoy it the way locals do. A great tour for those who have already been to Athens and seen the normal tourist sites.

Fun day, exploring Athens!
August 26, 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed this walking food tour! We enjoyed walking through the less-popular streets of Athens and eating like the locals eat! We shopped at the outdoor markets, ate koulouri from a cart, hot loukoumades donuts from the fryer, olives, olive oil, fruit sweets, mastic, cured meats and cheese from a shop, spinach pies, and souvlaki from a nice sit-down restaurant at the end. It was all delicious and very lots of great, interesting information. Highly recommended!!

An amazing tour with Georgia
July 28, 2019
We had an amazing time on a food tour of Athens with Georgia. It was a fantastic experience, from learning about the typical breakfast to the seeing the different markets, all the stops along the way to try different foods and finishing with a great lunch. Experiencing the city as a local rather than the typical tourist routes was interesting and really puts in perspective how Greeks live today. Georgia was fantastic, you can tell she loves giving the tours and her enthusiasm is infectious along with her love of the city and all the little extra information she provided to our group. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Walking food tour

Our tour guide Georgia was outstanding. She was so enthusiastic you could tell she loved her town and we immediately felt like her friends. Every place she took us ( there were many) she was met with smiles that transferred to us. The food sampling’s were soooo good and her knowledge of the way of life of the present day Athenian was extensive. Our last stop at a local restaurant for kebops also known as gyros was perfect. We absolutely recommend this our to everyone. It is a bit of a walk from the last restaurant to our bus meeting spot but it gave us a chance to go by the Acropolis and do some shopping.
