About
On this walk we will explore the culinary backstreets and secrets of downtown Athens, in search of the soul of this historic yet always vibrant city. We’ll visit an old-school dairy bar and a hidden gem of a loukoumades joint. We’ll sample souvlaki, and a kebab made according to a recipe brought to Athens by refugees from Constantinople. The walk will explore the hidden seafood eateries of the stoa, the arcades that are among downtown Athens’ most unique architectural features. There will be a few sips of homemade spirits, accompanied by an unforgettable bite in the center of the main fishmongers’ market. At once rough and beautiful, ancient and modern, the culinary backstreets of downtown Athens live on and tell the story of this city in a way few other landmarks can.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot more highly recommend this tour. My wife and I happened to be the only people who booked and we had an absolute blast with Constantine. We learned so much and the food was incredible. A crucial note: we do NOT like tours. Culinary backstreets is the only tour we ever go on and we have never been disappointed (this was our fourth country using CB). And if you’re going to do it, try to do it early in your trip so you can return to some of the amazing places.

Carolina was an amazing guide and shared with us great food options and much knowledge of Athens and food. Selecting fish and eating them in the fish mongers market was a memorable experience. This tour was a highlight of our stay in Athens.

Constantine was fun and knowledgeable. He not only introduced us to many Greek foods but included Greek history and fun facts about Athens and Greek life. We tasted and learned about many foods going to several local places. Culinary Backroads never disappoints! I highly recommend this tour.

This was an excellent tour and well worth the price. We ate a ton of delicious food and got to explore Athens in a unique way. Our guide, Carolina, is passionate about Greek cuisine, and very knowledgeable. We simply had fun, saw some amazing historical sites, and ate a lot of delicious food. Not a bad way to spend a day in Athens!

An excellent experience as always with Culinary Backstreets. We learnt so much, tasted great food and spent time with new people. I 100% recommend doing a Culinary Backstreet tour. Do it earlier on during your trip as possible because then you have loads of time to try out other places and have a good understanding of the history and food of the place.

Constantine was an amazing host, very knowledgeable of the history, culture and foods of authentic Greece. We visited many of the finest and unique family owned restaurants and food stands Athens has to offer.

The company consistently offers high quality tours and experiences. The Plaka walk was no exception. It offers plenty of stops to experience fresh baked goods, street food, olive oils, and sweet treats.

Great tour, incredible guide. We enjoyed the cultural background as much as the food. That being said, this may not be the best tour if you do not have some familiarity with Athens and Greek food in general. It becomes much more enjoyable if you are familiar with the basics (so do the plaka tour first and do this for example:).
