Marina's Athens Food Tour is an Athens Must Do!!!
Marina's food tour of athens was a true highlight of our time in Athens. We were a group of older people and me, and she was considerate at all times about their wants and likes. We saw and tasted so much, and not just food, but about the history and people of Athens. It was a truly wonderful way to explore and get to know Athens better, filled with delicious treats and visual wonders too, and in particular the impact of migration, and the 1921 Greek refugees from Turkey, on the food and neighbourhoods of Athens. Marina has a wealth of knowledge and options for sweat and savoury treats, and personal relations with many of the shops, that ensured we didn't miss anything! She also could tailor it as we went along, based on peoples cravings. Thank you so much Marina for opening our eyes, stomachs and hearts to Athens. And thank you for all the assistance you gave my parents (who had been pick pocketed earlier in the day). We can't thank you enough for everything! If you come to Australia, we will repay your hospitality

Perfect memories captured professionally.
Michalis is such a wonderful and talented photographer. My wife and I and two daughters traveled to Athens, Greece during Spring Break. Although I am the type who dislikes posing for photographs, we reserved a day photo shoot with Michalis as my wife loves family photos and I enjoy city tours. Michalis took us through the streets of Athens to view the local city center and spots only local Athenians would know about. We enjoyed his company so much that we reserved a second session with him at a different location to marvel the views of the sunset. Not only did Michalis capture every detail on film magnificently, he knows the city very well and gave us some great tips on places to visit and suggestions on places to eat.

The pictures turned out beautifully. We can’t thank Michalis enough for his friendship and for capturing the most memorable moments of our trip to Athens. If you are considering reserving a Day/Night photo shoot, do not hesitate to book a session with Michalis. You will not regret it.

Try it
So, we wanted to do something different from the typical tourist sightseeing stuff in Athens. We came across this, booked it and got reply and instructions where to go and meet up.
Very polite and friendly people arranging this, absolutely lovely meeting them.
A brief history about the ancient Greek art of clay and then we got to the crafting.
It looked very easy and smooth when the instructor worked with the clay, but don't be fooled, it was not at all as easy as it looked.
Was a fun and interesting experience, I would probably go again when visiting Athens again.
Definitely recommend this for anyone

Beautiful experience & professional photos!
We have spend a beautiful time with Michalis at Athens. Our group have been visited Plaka and Acropolis hills a day before, but he took as there by such interesting and I would even say "secret" path, that we would never found ourselves.
We wanted to have both day & night photos, so we have booked double time (4 hours) starting from 18:00 to 22:00. We saw very many interesting and nice places where Michalis took very professional group, couples and individual photos of all of us.
I definetelly recommend Michalis not only as professional photographer, but also as very kind and polite guide!

Don't miss this tour with Marina!
Marina was our smartest choice in planning our visit to Athens.
The tour with her was out very first thing we did in the city right upon arrival and it was exactly what a visitor needs in a new city: a local showing her/him around while pointing out at best spots to eat (where we of course tasted different foods) and places to visit again later. all was with her fluent English and knowledge of Athens past and present day and night life.

she was kind and lovely and gave us the best welcome possible to Athens.
We highly recommend her tour !!

A truly local experience
I had a great time hanging out with Vagelis and his friend Nick. We walked around Exarchia, ate local foods, sat in an alley, and talked about life. Vagelis went the extra mile to cater a tour in line with my interests. The guys invited me to spend another evening out with them in Kerameikos, which too was very nice. As a cool bonus, Vagelis took several pictures of me -- great memories! But above all else, we made friends, which is a tremendous opportunity for me to understand the Greek life and Greeks better.
Athens Street Food Tour
Amazing experience!
Marina is the most knowledgeable, energetic, fun to be around professional foodie ever. I recommend her food tour to everyone. It was seriously the highlight of my week trip in Athens. She gave me so many recommendations and I will have enough food to try for four Athens trips!
On the tour, do try to try something new - greek food can be very different if you’re from North America or the UK. You never know if you’ll actually end up liking something that you thought you’d hate!

Get lost in Athens with an Insider
It turns out I m still lost in Athens towards my last day of the trip and the tour guide Issac waited patiently for me and it also become a private tour, it cover places that I did not cover in Athens, brought me to drink coffee in one of the hidden gems in Athens... And brought me to the street art, the lovely graffiti talent of the Athenian and that lovely dog graffiti that I so wanted to see, it was indeed a wonderful trip

The best guide in town
My Husband and I had the chance to meet Marina while staying in Athens for the weekend in July this year. It was a real eye opening food tour with surprises in every corner and great food tips from our guide.
Marina has great knowledge in food and wines and shares it with a great passion. We have really good memories from our time in Athens and Marina's food tour.
If you have to do one tour in Athens, this is the one!

Awesome photoshoot in Athens by night
Michalis is a super nice guy that has an incredible eye for photography. We went around Athens at night and even with rain he was able to get some great shots and I had a fun time modelling and talking with him. He even carried around my bad of clothes as he took photos so the bag wouldn't get wet! Super great guy and a must do in Athens for some quality photos!

Amazing photos
Michalis is a really skilled photographer who knows how to work with the backgrounds and lighting. I have done a few photoshoots with other photographers, but the pictures from this shoot are by far the best I have received. Great value for money - would definitely use again and cannot recommend enough!

Great tour
Marina showed us a side of Greek cuisine we would not have seen had we stuck to the popular spots near the Acropolis; there is more to it than souvlaki and moussaka (both excellent dishes by the way). I highly recommend doing the tour at the beginning of your stay.

Great Evening with Marina
I had a great time with Marina wine bar hopping around Athens! She was very accommodating and knowledgeable. It was the perfect way to spend my first night in Athens after a long flight.

Fantastic, flexible and personal tour! Don't miss it!
This tour is a dream. Marina took us to the small spots that you'd never think of eating at (or know that you could eat at).

Memorable tour!
Especially the Mastic ice cream, youghurt shop, and the butchers shop were great stops :-)
Thanks for a great tour...
Foodie Tour of Athens
The most exciting way to see Athens
If you want to get under the skin of a city, tasting and smelling is, without doubt, one of the most fascinating, fun and magical way of doing it.

Greek food has such a strong presence all round the world that I wasn’t sure how much I would learn (I’m just greedy, so I thought it would be a yummy day). What I hadn’t expected was the breadth and depth of knowledge our guide had, and - by contrast - just how little I actually knew! Greek salad in London (or anywhere else) has very little resemblance to Greek salad ...

Tiama took us from breakfast to dinner, from everyday peasant food to street food to elegant food, from savoury to sweet, from Greek coffee to mastika. We salivated over sesame bread, swooned over pita, breathed in the giddy smells of the spice market, crushed basil leaves between our fingers and learnt about herbs, ate olives so meaty I could almost go vegan if I had those in my life, went dreamy-eyed over thick Greek yogurt drizzled with thyme honey, and feasted on moussaka.

But it wasn’t just the food. As we walked round Athens, she wove the history of the city, its buildings, its traditions, its family life, its culture into the food we ate and tasted.

All this in just four hours. I could have read a book on Athens and not learned as much. I could have spent five days marching round with a guidebook and would not have learned as much.

I wanted another four hours, and then another four days of it! Tiama is absolutely superb as a guide. Her English is brilliant, she is funny, witty, brilliantly clever, and a lovely person to spend time with.

Thank you. Worth every single penny.
Athens for Foodies: The Greek Gastronomy Tour
A
When you visit a new city, with adventure and curiosity in your soul, you have two choices in order to satisfy that need to explore new places and experiences: wander around with a guidebook in your pocket, aimlessly treading the path of some anonymous average tour guide - or pick up your camera, open your eyes to new experiences, and find a friendly, knowledgeable and generous local photographer to walk with. Whether you're a photographer or not, seeing the city through a photographer's eyes is to open your own eyes to wonder. If he's a passionate local too - even better. Vasilis of Photo Walks In Athens is just such a guide, if you're looking to see the best of the city (and beyond) in your limited time available - do it. We have so little time, there's so much to experience, get the very best experience for your precious effort. Vasilis will take you to the awesome famous historical places - but you'll get there enjoying the journey AND the destination, weaving your way through markets, and alleys, and by hidden gems such as have inspired poets and authors and artists for thousands of years.
My day with Vasilis resulted in hundreds of photos I'll keep forever, but much more importantly, memories of laughs and adventures fulfilled that have me looking forward to coming back to Athens, and walking with Vasilis again - and soon. Your Athens adventure couldn't be in better hands.
