Unbelievable food tour!
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!

Best night of our visit to Athens
If you’re thinking of taking this cooking class, think no more: you HAVE to take this class! Stam was our instructor. He was fun, personable, intelligent, and helpful. He helped us learn prepare to prepare multiple delicious dishes. Everything we made/ ate was so delicious, I wish I had more room in my stomach to eat it all! I can’t wait to go home and make these things for my family and friends in New York. It’s special to be able to bring a taste of Greece home with you, and that’s exactly what you get when you take this class to learn how to make these dishes.the view on top of the building at night is phenomenal; truly a sight to be seen. Stam is an ambitious and amazing chef; you’ll be lucky to experience his class. Happy to call him a new friend! Thank you for the experience.

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

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!

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!

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 Experience
The food tour was one of the best parts of our trip! Marina was really wonderful to spend the day with and she had the best food spots in Athens for us to try. Overall a very awesome experience!

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).

A highlight of our time in Athens!
My friends and I signed up for this tour somewhat last minute and were SO happy we did! Marina met us at a convenient location not far from where we were staying, and took us on an incredible walking journey through Athens' food culture. We sampled all kinds of Greek specialties -- things we never would have known to try (or known how to even order/ask for!) had we not gone on this tour. And we visited neighborhoods that we may not have seen otherwise. Come with an empty stomach, because you will want to eat and drink everything at every stop! Marina has a very warm personality and it was easy to spend hours walking and touring with her as she shared insights into the history and culture of Athens, and Greece generally, and the origins of some of the food we were trying. As we continued our travels through Greece after leaving Athens, we kept referring back to our tour with Marina - saying things like "that's that pastry we tried on our food tour in Athens" or "that's the fava that Marina was telling us about!" Very highly recommended - you won't regret it.

Taste of Athens
Tour sounds far too impersonal – our experience was much closer to meeting an old friend who took us on a private adventure in amazing Athens!

Marina first met us at a location near our hotel where she catered our journey exactly the way we wanted – this equalled getting food first as we were starving! Lol Aside from that, we totally lost track of time and the fact that we were even on a tour. Marina felt like an old friend catching up with us, explaining – in detail – the city she loves.

My only criticism would be to change the name of the tour. Marina absolutely took us on a route that introduced a number of gastronomy focused establishments, but she over delivered with deep and interesting knowledge on the history of Athens, politics, economy and a number of amazing conversational pieces that really competed our 10 day journey in Greece.

Marina became our friend and her tour completely overshadowed the overpriced Acropolis bus tour we had the day before.
5 STARS from us and we 100% recommend this tour!

Exceptional
We actually have 2 tours in one day. We made the Acropolis in the morning and area Walking Street organization that night. Nikos was wonderful that morning for the trip to the Acropolis. That he knew so much story and my husband really enjoyed it and he has a great enthusiast of history. Elina was our nighttime street guide and it was so much a breath of fresh air. It was like entering a friend. We really got to hang with the locals and when we stopped eating we had a wonderful conversation and we learned a lot from both sides of the Atlantic. More than he would ever have learned with a huge organization. I felt very personal. She is so young with all her knowledge was amazing. My husband has been studying Greek history for years and was really excited to find someone who could teach him something new. Left el. a stone - activated. I would definitely recommend it to the lovers of history. Be sure to bring walking shoes together.

Great Intro to Athens
We loved our tour with Marina!!! Fantastic way to get to know your way around while truly enjoying the local feel, taste & smell of the city. She provided good company & a wonderful knowledge of what was offered in this area.(Lots) Marina showed us great food & history she supplied us with many places. We liked that you order & pay after she makes a few recommendations. After several good food stops you could actually map location & places by the feel , taste & smell of whole downtown city! We were only there one day & hate we couldn’t do one of the other tours with her also.(next time) Thankfully this tour provides a wonderful start & opens the door to not only great food , history but good company .Its a wonderful Intro to the navigation of this city. Follow your nose😋 * Highly Recommended
Thx Again,

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.

Terrific Tour
Our tour with Eleni was fabulous. We loved seeing parts of Athens we would never have found and tasting authentic Greek dishes. Eleni was a perfect host, so warm and interesting. She was an excellent ambassador for Greek cuisine and gave us a glimpse of how Greeks live outside the tourist haunts. We were very pleased to receive a follow-up email with notes from our tour, some favorite recipes and even her suggestions for food in our upcoming stay in Santorini. We try to do food tours in cities we visit and this was an excellent choice. One of my favorite discoveries in Greece was the drink Maotixa. We bought a bottle at one of Eleni’s stops and smiled every time we had a drink. I only hope I can find it in the US. Eleni and GreekingMe Food tours were a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Athens.

BEST PART OF OUR TRIP
When you first land in Athens you realize it’s a pretty run down and dirty city. We did our time at the acropolis and did all the temples but the 4 hour tour with Marina completely turned our experience around! She showed up parts of the city that were interesting and fun and even showed us some really fun and cool things near our hotel. We had been walking by these places for three days and never knew what they were. If you want to see Athens, you need to do it with a local and a local like Marina was a BLESSING!

Do yourself a favor and definitely take this tour specifically with Marina. My friend and I didn’t take the food walk tour till our last day in Athens, and that’s something we regret the most about our trip. Marina gave us a deep appreciation for the city and for that we are thankful.

Excellent Customized Private Tour By Marina
I have been to Athens at least 5 times previously. Marina did a fantastic job emailing me about my likes, where I have been, what we like and don’t like and many other questions which was great as she was understanding likes and dislikes.

She really hit a “home-run” last night. We simply spent the evening at a wonderful deli in a suburb south of the Acropolis owned by two gentlemen who are passsionate about Greece and about the food and beverage they serve.

I could not ask for a better prepared evening. My conversation with Marina was wonderful. She understands American and English cultures very well. The best time and investment I have made in the 5 times I have been to Athens.

Please contact Marina as she will organize any type of personalized tour you and interested in.

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!
