Overview
Touring Athens’ food scene on your own, you probably just skim the surface of the city’s cuisine. Get a taste of local flavor with a guide who takes you to food destinations beloved by Athenians. Taste loukoumades (donuts), sample Greek coffee, and peruse the central market with your guide’s tips and pointers. All tastings included for added value, and because it’s a private tour, you get plenty of personal attention.
Highlights
  • Explore the flavors of Athens on a private food walking tour
  • Tour shops and markets to discover local foods you might otherwise miss
  • Try cold cuts, loukoumades, and more, and visit the central market
  • Personalized attention from private guide, with tastings and drinks included
What to Expect
Greet your guide at your central Athens hotel on foot or at a convenient meeting point, and set off to explore the city’s culinary scene. As you walk, learn how Athenians are passionate about food, and hear about their daily cooking routines and favorite ingredients, techniques, and recipes. Delve into backstreets for an authentic take on the local gastronomy, and visit bakeries, specialized food shops, and more to taste sweet and savory delicacies. Chat with artisans and vendors for insight into their creations, and visit the central market to peruse wares from across Greece. Plus, tap into your guide’s local knowledge for ideas on tasty souvenirs to buy. Dishes you may try include straight-from-the-oven pies, souvlaki (meat skewers), loukoumades—honey-soaked mini-donuts—and cold cuts. Stop for a traditional Greek coffee and local spirits that are part of the fabric of life here. Your tour concludes at a central location.
