I can only agree to the last review! Had a great time with Tassos! He was bubbly, knowledgeable and generous - simply fun to be around! It actually was more than “just” a food tour. He really took his time and also stopped at places, told stories and dropped interesting facts that go beyond culinary culture. He also adapted to my dietary preferences (vegetarian) which I really appreciated! Thank you again for a great experience. Highly recommend! :)

This tour was AMAZING! Tassos was INCREDIBLE! We could have walked around with him for 4 more hours! He was so friendly and had so much to offer; stories, history, friendship. We sat and exchanged stories, ate AMAZING food, and learned SO MUCH. He is so proud of his city, as he should be, and it shows! We had olives, and Raaki, and bread, and souvlaki, and nuts, and meats, and cheeses, and so many delicious things I can’t even remember! And there’s no pressure. You try it and don’t like it, no worries! Tassos just wants you to have the best experience. You won’t be disappointed and you won’t leave hungry or uncomfortably full. Cheers Tassos and thank you!!!
