Delicious Walk in Athens
This tour was a fantastic introduction to Athens. Konstantinos was an amazing guide. During a heat wave he was extremely accommodating to our large group of 10. Every stop was unique and delicious! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in Athens.

Exceptional Foodie Fun
Aug 2021 • Friends
This experience was exceptional! A stop in Athens would not be complete without Konstantinos and this wonderful food tour. It was extremely well paced for our group of 10 and Konstantinos really accommodated not only our group size but a record heat wave to make us as comfortable as possible. We thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend this experience.

Athens Food Small-Group Walking Tour with Konstantinos Pesmatzoglou
Jun 2021 • Couples
I visited Athens with my family on June 24th and 25th and took the Athens Food Small-Group Walking Tour guided by Konstantinos Pesmatzoglou. It was a superb introduction into the food atmosphere of Athens and Konstantinos was very accommodating with frequent breaks due to the extreme temperatures. Our tour was such fun we asked for him to guide us around the Plaka/Psirri area the next day. Since we left Athens for our charter to the Cyclades he has emailed several times to see how our Island Trip is progressing. Our family found a life-long friend in Konstantinos. Do not hesitate to take this tour!

A truly great experience
This tour was a delightful experience. Konstantinos has put together a great itinerary, he is polite, kind and extremely knowledgeable. It was a privilege to spend time with him and learn about the history of Athens street food and related customs. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting an insight into Athens not normally available to visitors.

Highly recommended if you want an authentic Greek food experience.
Jun 2021 • Couples
The food was amazing. Our family of 8 picky eaters all enjoyed the places our guide Konstantinos took us. In addition to having us try the most popular traditional Greek foods, we had a wine tasting and olive oil tasting and loved both. Having a guide to explain the food and translate when needed was important to us and he took the time to do that and move at our pace. He was well prepared to handle anything with us. We definitely would not have had as good of an experience without him.

Perfect experience. Trusted our guide immediately to take us to the places we wanted to see the most.
Jun 2021 • Couples
We had our guide for 2 whole days. Our family of 8 immediately felt comfortable with our guide Konstantinos. He went at our pace and explained the history and significance of everything we saw and more. He felt like part of our family from the start and has checked on us since to see how the rest of our vacation is going.

Customized food tour was great.
Jun 2021 • Couples
The food tour was a great time. We stopped at several different restaurants and tasted most of the popular local cuisine. My boyfriend is vegetarian and they accommodated us everywhere we stopped. The tour guide was knowledgeable, on time, and very helpful and friendly.
