Full description
Prepare yourself for a mouthwatering journey to discover the secrets of world-renowned Greek cuisine. This 4-hour experience will take you through picturesque neighbourhoods and local food shops offering secret culinary treasures. During the tour, your food-loving guide will share stories about Greek gastronomy and local culture. You’ll taste 15 different types of Greek culinary excellence, including a traditional filo pie from a family-run place that has existed since the 1920s, the dessert that was given to the winners of the ancient Olympic Games and Greece’s most famous street food! You’ll also discover the answer to the great debate: Turkish or Greek coffee? Unlike many Athens food tours, you won't just be sampling mouthfuls. This is a 4-hour Greek gastronomy tour where you will enjoy traditional Greek recipes such as stuffed tomatoes, moussaka, soutzoukakia, the dessert of choice for the winners of the ancient Olympic Games and more.

    Our food tour guide, Ismini, was amazing. She’s super friendly and knowledgeable and we got to experience authentic Greek cuisine. We got to walk around the streets of Athens and learn more about its history as well. She also provided us with some recommendations during our stay in Greece which was super helpful. I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the city as you get to learn more about Greek history and culture. Thanks so much for the tour Mini! :-)

    Penelope is smart, friendly and also amazing guide that took us thru the markets with a lot of insights about locals customs, old and new ones. She didnt hesitate to show us on the map where the food originated from or to tell us some mitological base for some specialities. So leave out the breakfast and hesitate no more!

    What a great tour that made our whole trip so exciting! We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the city while learning the history of the city and the food we were eating. We saw where many locals live and shop. Our guide, Miny was amazing! So patient and knowledgeable and shared so much of her own life so we could better understand the culture! We sampled over 15 different foods and went to 8 places and we were stuffed! We had an infant with us- I suggest wearing the baby or carrying as a stroller would be difficult on the narrow streets. The best thing we did in Athens!
