My husband and I were in port for the day, and having been in Athens before, we wanted to do something different. This was the best choice, and so glad we did! If you arrive on a cruise ship, you need a driver to get to the meeting point.

Anna was our guide. We had so much fun with her. I can't tell you enough how wonderful all the food was from the Greek coffee, the olives, the meat and cheese, the doughnuts, the fantastic gyros (we are still talking about how amazing they were), and everything else in between. We walked through the meat market, the fish market, and the vegetable market. We also stopped in a few churches. We took our time at all the stops, never felt rushed.

Again, can't say enough about this tour and the food. Great choice and variety for all the stops.

Highly recommend this tour, and go hungry!

Anna - it took us the rest of the cruise to finish the olives! I wish we had that here!

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.

Acropolis Skip the Line Tour
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!
