Really fantastic experience and best activity we did in Athens Three lovely local and enthusiastic ladies welcome you into their kitchen and great hosts very relaxed beautiful . We enjoyed the slow pace of making our Greek lunch with nice wine and drinks . It’s a great way to learn more about the city and most of all the welcoming , charming and great hospitality of our Athenian hosts We went at lunch time and timing was just right They also offer wine pairings and we will return to do that next time we visit Athens Just brilliant and made our holiday feel really special and memorable

A classic new teaching kitchen with natural light from the windows looking out to a balcony.. The main instructor was fun, well organized, and the food we created under her supervision was Shakespearean yummy. The lunch itself was delightful in the natural warmth of the conversation with all the staff. We have gone to a cooking school in most cities we have travelled, ONION will be at the top of our list should we be fortunate enough to return to Athens. Actually ONION is great motivation to come back.

We enjoyed our tour. We would never have found all the interesting street art by ourselves. It was a very worthwhile tour and took you beyond the acropolis-centric experience of Athens.

Exceptional guide. Full of knowledge about everything - history, culture, politics. Very special experience.

Everything was amazing! Nice guide , interesting excursion. If u like street art you will like this!
