My first food tasting tour ever and a great experience. Anabelle the guide is very very nice. You get the chanxe to visit parts of Athens off the beaten path and the food is excellent. I was too full to eat the gyros at our last stop, so I took it away as a next meal. The food tasting included best known Greek food (olives, feta, gyros etc.) but also other dishes. Highly recommended.

awesome experience and well worth the money. Anebelia was a great guide and took us all over central Athens for the best eateries. never having been to Greece I wouldn't have even known what foods to try! if you are worried about not eating enough or that it is not worth the money, Dont!. it is more than worth it.

I love to do the bike tours wherever I go and this one did not not disappoint. Our guide Kostas loves what he does and it shows. Very engaging and knew the best photo spots.

I could not recommend this tour enough. Our guide, Anabelia, was exceptional and the tour takes you to places off the beaten path.

Excellent food tour. Dorela was a great guide, funny and very detailed. I fully recommend this tour.
