Elena was an excellent guide on the food tour. Her knowledge of Greek history and Greek food recipes was outstanding. I tried food that I normally wouldn’t try on holiday and enjoyed everything. This is my first time visiting Greece, I will be back. Regards, Rob Mann

Great food experience with Elena
Elena was an excellent guide on the food tour. Her knowledge of Greek history and Greek food recipes was outstanding. I tried food that I normally wouldn’t try on holiday and enjoyed everything. This is my first time visiting Greece, I will be back. Regards, Rob Mann
Fantastic!
We got to experiment Athens like a local. We really felt our tour guide did an excellent job of introducing us to amazing Greek food while explaining the origin behind it, one of the best things she said was ,”I wanted this tour to be something I would take my friends or family to if they were visiting”. That’s exactly how we felt! We went to neighborhoods and restaurants we would have never found on our own. We absolutely loved it!
Thank you!

Authentic Greek Cuisine food tour - Not to be missed!
This food tour was my favorite experience from my recent trip to Greece. The walking tour began in Syntagma Square and ended in Psirri, stopping in several neighborhoods over the four-hour tour. The tour purposely avoided obvious selections (Gyros, Souvlaki), providing samples of Greek cuisine from places our guide, Elena, visited as a child and continues to visit as an adult. Most places we stopped had been operating in that location, specializing in one food item, for generations, now operated with children and sometimes grandchildren of the original proprietor.

Our tour group was small; there were only 3 of us. The portions were extremely generous and there was never any pressure to purchase the products we were sampling. The tour moved at a leisurely pace, but make sure you are wearing good walking shoes. There are plenty of opportunities to sit down, talk with each other while savoring each morsel. But that wasn't all. Later that night, Elena sent each of us a personalized email listing all 10 stops, their addresses and the name of what we tried. I highly and enthusiastically recommend this tour.
