We did the tour and it was ok. The guide was friendly but every time we stopped somewhere he spent more time talking about the prices and what we could buy at each place rather than the the food we were actually eating.

We had a fantastic time as part of a small group. It was a very full morning through lunch excursion and our guide, Marianna, was the best! She was not only energetic and personable, but her attention to us, our questions and her explanation of the food was outstanding! She had an excellent command of English and her inclusion of...

My husband and I booked this Food tour. Our guide was the owner/creator of the tour. She was very lovely and very knowledgeable about food. It was a very interesting tour, and we loved learning about the Greek food and the way Greek people cook. However, for the price paid we felt it was on the expensive side. With a... More

This late October tour is still aggravating me. It could have been a great tour. The guide was knowledgeable, the group convivial, the places we went were interesting, the food shared was very good but the guide raced from place to place.

The tour was great! Vicky was our guide, and she really gave us a lot of great information about Greece and its relationship to food. We hit a lot of great spots, and had lots of wonderful food. Very pleased with the experience, I highly recommend it.

This was a very interesting way to spend a few hours in Athens. We had a group of about 10 of us with our guide. She pointed out various landmarks as we walked through different areas. We tasted local foods, drank local wines, and visited the open air markets. This was definitely a worthwhile experience.

My partner and I went on the Athens food tour in September 16. We had a great morning sampling a variety of beautiful food from a range of locations.

Vasiliki took our group around the hidden spots of Athens, giving us a locals view of the city and sharing great foods at the locals (non-touristy) spots.

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
