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.
Greek Cooking class with an Acropolis view
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
The most exciting way to see Athens
If you want to get under the skin of a city, tasting and smelling is, without doubt, one of the most fascinating, fun and magical way of doing it.

Greek food has such a strong presence all round the world that I wasn’t sure how much I would learn (I’m just greedy, so I thought it would be a yummy day). What I hadn’t expected was the breadth and depth of knowledge our guide had, and - by contrast - just how little I actually knew! Greek salad in London (or anywhere else) has very little resemblance to Greek salad ...

Tiama took us from breakfast to dinner, from everyday peasant food to street food to elegant food, from savoury to sweet, from Greek coffee to mastika. We salivated over sesame bread, swooned over pita, breathed in the giddy smells of the spice market, crushed basil leaves between our fingers and learnt about herbs, ate olives so meaty I could almost go vegan if I had those in my life, went dreamy-eyed over thick Greek yogurt drizzled with thyme honey, and feasted on moussaka.

But it wasn’t just the food. As we walked round Athens, she wove the history of the city, its buildings, its traditions, its family life, its culture into the food we ate and tasted.

All this in just four hours. I could have read a book on Athens and not learned as much. I could have spent five days marching round with a guidebook and would not have learned as much.

I wanted another four hours, and then another four days of it! Tiama is absolutely superb as a guide. Her English is brilliant, she is funny, witty, brilliantly clever, and a lovely person to spend time with.

Thank you. Worth every single penny.

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.

Terrific Food Tour!
My wife and I and another couple took the Athens For Foodies tour. It was by far the best food tour we have ever taken. I can't say enough good things about this tour. For over 4 hours we walked around Athens, visiting bakeries, cheese shops, butcher shops, local restaurants and the famous Athens Central Market. We got to sample over a dozen delicious food items and beverages. And by sample, I don't mean one tiny bite per person. We had very generous servings at all of our stops. They are not kidding- you can skip breakfast before the tour, you definitely won't want to have lunch after the tour, and you may even think twice about having dinner that day! Anna and Nikos were perfect tour guides- extremely friendly, very knowledgeable about Athens history and Greek food and they are obviously foodies who love what they do. You may think that the cost is relatively high for a food tour, but it is worth every penny and you won't go away disappointed (or hungry)! Highly recommended!

A Real Highlight of our Time in Athens
We scheduled an Athens for Foodies tour for four of us. Elena our guide met us in Syntagma Square, which was very close to our hotel. We really enjoyed this tour and it was obvious Elena was very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing with us the food and history of Athens. Her personal observations were enlightening and we toured amazing areas of Athens we would never have experienced without her.

We enjoyed a wide variety of foods, meats, cheeses, olives, sweets, pastas, traditional Greek foods like moussaka and dolmates and Greek coffee in many different establishments. We so enjoyed the food we returned to some of the restaurants again! Elena also sent us her favorite recipes of some of the delicious items we sampled.

Scheduling with these guys was easy and they were very prompt answering questions we had during the scheduling process. This was a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience and I would suggest it to anyone going to Greece.

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.

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.

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!

Fabulous Food Tour
Got to experience the food tour in the night thanks to my friends who gifted it to me and my wife. We had no idea what to expect but by the end of the tour we decided that for all our future trips we will start with a food tour.

Elena was fabulous in taking us through the various options of Greek cuisine and that set the tone for our wonderful two-week trip. We had this on the first night in Athens and thanks to Elena's tips we visited a few more restaurants in other places across Greece. On the night we were back in Athens we went back to one of the restaurants (Ergon Deli).
We will definitely recommend everyone who visits Greece (especially Asians) who are not familiar with authentic Greek cuisine to signup with these guys.
Thanks for the experience.

Amazing Food Tour Experience!
I could not have asked for a better experience than the "Get a Taste of Athens" tour with Pascal. Not only did I taste an incredible variety of foods, but I also learned much about the city, the culture, and the history of Athens. Getting to spend an entire morning with someone as knowledgeable as Pascal is a once-in-a-lifetime treat. I left with a full belly and tons of great photos to share with friends and family. My only regret is that I didn't book the tour sooner! He gave us so many great tips for ordering coffee, where to have dinner, and neighborhoods to explore. It would have made my Athens experience so much richer to have done the tour at the beginning of my trip rather than at the end. Don't miss this tour!

Great cooking tips
We are two Italian chefs and cooking instructors and we had a very interesting cooking experience with chef Stem at the bakery where he works near Monastiraki. We have worked in the upstairs laboratories, which were not spotless at the end of the working day. Nevertheless we got great tips from a very nice and knowledgeable chef even on simple traditional Greek recipes like spinach pie, tzatziki, Greek salad and sauté chicken. On the rooftop there is a great view of the Acropolis but, due to bad weather, we had a nice dinner in the inside restaurant together with our fellow foodies from New Zealand. In conclusion we were favorably impressed by the overall experience and we suggest it to any foodie.

Highly personalized and insightful foray into Greek Cuisine
Elena, our guide took us (my husband and me) through a lovely night time stroll through the Syntagma, Monastiraki, Plaka and Psirri. She took us to a variety of places from chic cafes to family-run tavernas. We loved just about every dish we sampled and learnt so much about the cuisine, it's influences and the history. We did the tour on the first day of our 2 week holiday and this set us up so well for the rest of our trip. We knew what to order going forward and were not stuck to eating Sovlaki and Gyros for every meal. Elena gave us helpful suggestions about restaurants to visit in Santorini and Nafplio as well. Thank you GreekingMe and Elena for this wonderful experience.

Greek Food Tour
This is a great Greek food tour! It included around 10 different stop as places frequented mostly by locals. Some of these places had been in business since the early 1900s. The food was excellent and were were able to sample many different types of Greek food. Also, we went to the main market and had a chance to look around at where the locals before eating in small restaurant located in the market. . We went on this tour with our 2 children ages 13 and 10. They enjoyed tasting all the food and said to tell everyone "not to eat breakfast before you go on this tour".

TOP food tour in Athens
We booked the Athens for foodies tour in August 2016 and it was the best part of our trip! Christina, our guide was very fun and took us to many different shops around the city. We tasted so much traditional food, savory and sweets and visited local places where we couldn't have found on our own. It was very educational about the food tradition of Greece and at the end of the tour we were so full we couldn't go for lunch! It was so fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see the real Athens and taste the delicious Greek food!

Fantastic Experience
We have taken many cooking classes around the world and this was one of the very best. Under the capable direction of chef Stam, we made chocolate mousse, tsatziki, spanakopita, Greek salad and chicken in tomato sauce. The class was hands on and we learned many new tips on making these delicious dishes.
The class ended with an amazing rooftop dining experience complete with a night view of the Acropolis. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Athens. Chef Stam was outstanding.

Greeking.me Tour
Great tour. We had a very knowledgeable guide who gave us the historical background behind the foods we tasted.
We were introduced to a wide range of delicious foods, ranging from savory to sweet. Since there was a heat wave at the time, temperatures were very high, but thankfully the majority of the tour took place in air-conditioned restaurants/cafes, and also the walks from one location to the other were thankfully mostly shaded.
In general, excellent experience and introduction to Athens.

What a food tour!
We enjoyed an amazing Athens food tour with Greeking.me last week. Our guide was really knowledgeable and she had also prepared a file with photos in her ipad, in order to show us the Athens as it was in the past! The tour lasted about 4,5 hours and we tasted many different greek foods, visiting some traditional shops and restaurants that a visitor can't find.

It was the highlight of our trip as we learned so many things about the greek gastronomy. No need for lunch and highly recommended!
