OMG this is a must-do while in Greece. I loved learning about the history of Greece and its food. We had the opportunity to try a variety of foods and visit places off the main roads that we would have never found. I loved this!!!!!

The food was good, but what really made the tour excellent was our knowledgeable and engaging tour guide, Vasiliki. Over the course of about four hours, she took us to local spots where we tried a variety of Greek cuisine. Her patience and wit made us feel welcome, and we throughly enjoyed our time. Highly recommend!

My tour guide Penelope was amazing. She has an impressive knowledge of history, culture, architecture, etc. which made the experience much greater than just a food tour. I definitely have a greater appreciation of the influences on Greek cuisine.

Irini our host was fabulous, friendly and very knowledgeable of Athens. We enjoyed all of the many food stops and suffice to say, felt more than satisfied at the end. Would recommend to all for a independent, indepth insight into Athens and all of its culinary delights.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Greek food walking tour. Irini was a wonderful guide. It’s a great way to learn about little local gems- like the lovely couple who make their own hand pies. Lots of fun and great food, too!

First time visiting Athens and I couldn't be more impressed by the local hospitality.
Vicky was an awesome tour guide! She was very knowledgeable, pleasant, helpful and seem to have a great relationship with the shop owners we visited.
Her tour seemed oriented on showcasing smaller business in the Athens area, which was awesome as I would have never found them otherwise.
Vicky was also very helpful in giving me a list of other hidden gems to try out during my stay in Athens.

We had a great time on the Athens food tour led by Viki! Saw many parts of Athens that we wouldn't have otherwise seen! Viki was very knowledgeable and super passionate about the city and it's different food shops and marketplaces which really added to the tour. Highly recommend if you want to experience parts of Athens outside of the archeological sites. We made sure to take note of the different food stops and plan on going back to eat at some of them again with our remaining time in Athens.

The tour was fantastic and our guide Tiama was wonderful. We loved how we were given options on what to do next and everything we tried was great. We especially loved the honey tasting and went back to buy some before we left Athens. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and informative tour.
