We were led by the highly entertaining and skilled Sofia (and her sidekick Nicoletta) in an action-packed 4 hours of cooking delicious Greek food. Apart from doling out clear instructions, Sofia gave care to share personal stories of the dishes and histories of the ingredients. I feel like I learned so much behind each individual piece of even a Greek Salad- no bite will ever be taken for granted!

Sophia was the perfect hostess and teacher in our cooking class. By the end of the evening, we had definitely made a new friend in her! She gathered us around the table and shared with us all the details about how to make a Greek dinner - just like her grandmother had done for her. We make Greek salads all the time at home now, and we know how to slice the tomatoes into little “pyramid,” thanks to Sophia! This was one of the best experiences we had on our Greek vacation.

'Perfect hostess' is what we love to hear, dear Amy! We are glad you got a real taste of Greek hospitality, and the unparalleled sense of sharing that accompanies a Greek dinner table. Nevertheless, for us the best part of your amazing feedback is that you carried a piece of our country in your own kitchen at home; Sophia couldn't be happier! We will be delighted to host you again, and until then, stay safe and keep on sharing wonderful experiences!

This was our favorite part of our trip to Athens! Sophia is PHENOMENAL! She makes cooking a lot of fun and very personal. You really connect with traditional family cooking for a Sunday dinner through Sophia and her experience learning with her grandmother. The meal you make is sublime and eating it together with the view of the Acropolis at sunset is something that can’t be replicated. I have already made plans to go home and cook the recipes with my friends!

I/we had the most amazing cooking class with Sophia and Lucia. I brought a group of 26 people (students) in total, and they managed to make everyone feel seen. They even made the effort of trying to learn and remember all of our names. They did everything splendidly even though we were such a large crowd. We had a fun afternoon and night and cooked a lot of delicious Greek dishes. Will definitely recommend this to everyone looking for a fun and meaningful activity in Athens!

My girlfriends and I went to Athens for a getaway trip, we really wanted to take a cooking a class, and we lucked out picking this one!
Sofia, our instructor felt like a long lost friend she was absolutely wonderful.
We were lucky enough to have the whole class to ourselves, which was probably a good thing as we were loud and laughing so much.
We learned how to make 7+ dishes and each one of them was beyond delicious. I am NOT normally a fan of dolmades, but after making Sofia's and learning some amazing tips they are now one of my favorites.
The experience is one that none of us will soon forget, the food delicious, the staff from the restaurant was wonderful and Sofia, well we all invited her to come visit us in our home countries, that's how amazing she is.
Book this now, you will not be disappointed.
Oh, and the view from the balcony was amazing!

This was one of the best things we did on our holiday trip to Barcelona and Athens. First, everything was extremely well laid out for us when we arrived (raw ingredients, knives, and other tools out on the prep table). Rena was our instructor and she immediately conveyed a sense of pride, knowledge, and passion in what she does, which got my family acclimated quickly. Rena went through the details of the importance of good food in the Greek culture, what we'd be making, and the reasons behind each step in the process. There was an assistant who was helping to clear items when we were done with them, and she was extremely attentive to requests (such as "may I have another glass of wine?").

We made stuffed grape leaves, Greek salad, lemon potatoes and lamb, spinach/cheese pie, zucchini balls, tzatziki, and a yogurt dessert. Each was fun to create as Rena showed us the proper techniques, and each turned out to taste fantastic. My kids could not get over how good everything turned out, and on the way back to the hotel were already planning to try to make them on our own when we got home.

Athens Walking Tours did a great job with this cooking class, and Rena was fantastic; the 4 hours ended way too quickly. When we left for the evening it felt like we were saying goodbye to a family friend. This outing is highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn more about Greek culture and is looking for an excellent dinner and unique experience.

My husband and I had our cooking class with the wonderful Sophia and Nikoleta on our first night in Greece. It was the best introduction to Greek food and culture we could have hoped for. Sophia was talented, fun, gave us great cooking tips, and a fantastic experience. We ate our feast afterwards and enjoyed the wine, the view, and the company. We highly recommend this class and the amazing Sophia. Make sure you come hungry!

I booked this experience last-minute and it was very much worth it. I found out about it from a new friend I made on another your and we had a great time. Sophia was an amazing teacher and she was very friendly and informative. The food that we made as a group was phenomenal and classic Greek. The dinner part of the experience was just as wonderful. I would highly recommend this experience if you ever find yourself in Athens!

My daughters and I took the cooking class with Sophia and we weren't disappointed. Sophia was EXCELLENT. She was so energetic, authentic, and really sweet. I loved the entire experience and I'm not one to cook. Sophia even had dinner w/us after the meal was prepared and assisted us with getting cabs back to our hotel. I highly recommend this class but only if Sophia is teaching the class.
