This was a great tour! The guide was very knowledgeable. It felt like we spent the morning with an old friend. There is no better way to experience the culture of a country than to learn about its cuisine.

Dear Knyght1, Thank you for your wonderful review of your food and culture tour in Athens with Xenia from Epiculiar! We are happy you chose this experience to explore Greek food with a local host, even more so because we exceeded your expectations. That’s such a great compliment. Thanks! Xenia was enthusiastic to share with you all the secrets of Greek specialties as well as stories about the city, the culture and hidden places. It’s amazing you enjoyed the olive oil tasting and we hope you will proudly share things you learned with your friends and family over a dinner back home.
