It was a fantastic tour. Our guide obviously loved what he does. He was so passionate about The Acropolis and It resonated. It was a lot of information to take in, but was very enjoyable. He spoke excellent English.

Acropolis Skip the Line Afternoon Walking Tour
What a great way to see this beautiful monument! The afternoon tour was fantastic because it was a lot less crowded. Our guide, Dimitri, is a history professor and a wonderful storyteller; please ask for him! They provide you with water and a snack before you go, which was an unexpected and thoughtful surprise. We learned so much about not only The Acropolis, but also about the history surrounding it. Highly recommend it!

Greek Cooking Class and Rooftop Dinner with Spiros
This was an amazing evening. We met Spiros in Monasteraki Square and introduced ourselves to the other couples from USA and Mexico who were enjoying the evening with us. We headed to Meliartos, the coffee shop he works in and headed up to the kitchen area to start preparing our meal. We started with a chocolate mousse dessert then prepared a spinach and ricotta pie, Tsitsaki dips, a classic Greek salad and a chicken and vege dish. We did pretty well but the finale was to head to their rooftop overlooking the Acropolis to enjoy a relaxing dinner of what we had prepared.
We sat next to a building with a commercial rooftop restaurant and I'm sure our food and ambience was better that their's.
Spiros was very helpful and informative giving us a great insight into Greek culture and the effects of the global economic disaster on his life. Good luck with your musical ambitions,Spiros.

What a wonderful tour!
Dorella (I called her “Doe” because I can’t roll my “R’s” very well) was our guide and her knowledge of the area and cuisine was amazing! She was born and raised In the area we toured and offered an education in all aspects of cuisine but also any other subject we inquired about. Her smile and enthusiasm was contagious and brighter than the Greek sun that day. We definitely received a fantastic overview of Greek food and it’s history all the while sampling said history. We will definitively be back to do the tour again with Dorella - but we might have to back off eating so many delicious Loukoumades! (Beware the warm sweet fluffy crispy Loukoumades, they come early on in the tour and it’s a marathon not a sprint! ) Our best food tour to date in our many travels. Well done!

Great fun
We had a superb time on our food tour. The guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. You try so many flavours, textures, food and drink its unbelievable. No one in the group realised there would be so much. The tour lasted 4 hours but flew by and was over too soon. Highly recommended indeed.

Wonderful Food Adventure
We enjoyed every minute of our food tour. Dorela made the experience enjoyable with her knowledge of food, locations, and sense of humor. She was honest with her commentary and her interactions with the the tour group was filled with great energy. The food was amazing, next time we are in Greece we will definitely book with her again.
