Athens Small-Group Food Tasting Tour
From US$78.78
Overview
Let your taste buds do the exploring on this 2.5-hour small-group tour focusing on the best of Greek cuisine. Led by a local guide, you’ll set out on foot to sample such classics as creamy feta, rich olives and olive oil, and sesame seed-crusted ‘koulouri’ (bread). Wash it all down with a glass of strong, licorice-flavored ouzo. Your guide will even take you to a local delicatessen, where the owner will divulge the secrets to Athens' best eats. A small group limited to 12 people or less ensures a more intimate, personalized experience.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at Kotzia Square and then set off on foot to discover Athens’ authentic foods in Central Market. As you stroll, admire the intricacies of the 18th-century neoclassical buildings contrasted with wondrous ancient ruins.

On arrival, discover traditional Greek foods, such as feta and olives, then try delicious yet simple koulouri (a round-shaped bread with sesame seeds), elegantly formed pastries and ouzo, a classic Greek liqueur. Next, indulge in the potent warmth of Greek coffee, or refresh yourself with the iciness of a frappé during Athens’ warm afternoons.

After working up an appetite, stroll to a classic Greek deli and taste some local fruit, meat and cheese. Enjoy light banter with the shopkeeper and watch close as patrons decide on the best offerings. Perhaps order some seasonal specialties for a snack later.

Finally, cruise to the stony streets of Monastiraki Square, where your tour ends. Feel free to ask your guide for tips on Athens' popular restaurants or for directions back to your hotel.
