Tour by Agathi
Local Expert

Hello, My name is Agathi, born in 1986 in Athens and lived here since then. I have studied Statistics and i hold a Finance and Business Administration master degree. Working for many years in the family business, a small bookstore close to the city center, I have been addicted to reading but i especially love reading classic novels and books dedicated to Greek history. What really awakens my senses is Art!! literature, theater or music are the perfect ingredients that add some spark to my everyday routine. While I wander around downtown, I never miss a chance to capture any special moment that catches my eyes within the city's buzz. When i am not working in my bookstore I enjoy visiting small independent fashion boutiques spoiling myself with unique pieces of handmade art . Needless to say how much I love travelling!! and as a keen traveler myself I’ve always loved to learn about different cultures and always wanted to see each place like a local. So, if you want to see Athens through the eyes of a enthusiastic local then I will be delighted to show you the hidden, or not so hidden, treasures of my City!!

Around that area we will taste various authentic Greek tastes, such as, cheeses, meats, cold cuts, Greek coffee, lukumades (aka the Greek donut) and more! Of course a visit to the market area wouldn’t be complete without olives and nuts tasting directly from the market!
Later we are passing by at one of the most beautiful and alternative Athenian districts, with a lot of stories to tell, we will visit one of the oldest bakeries in town and taste the favorite Greek snack!
It wouldn’t be an Athens food experience without tasting different varieties of honey, traditional drinks and of course the extra virgin olive oil! Learn what makes an olive oil extra virgin and how to recognize the high quality ones!
