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!
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 !!
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!
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).
Amazing guide took us through Athens food heaven
We were 5 guys from Denmark walking through many different food spots in Athens. Our guide Marina was absolutely amazing and knew a lot of spots with great atmosphere and food.

The tour was not fully planned in advance and she was brilliant to meet our suggestions with her great knowledge about Athens and food. She made things happen when we proposed something.

Great Evening with Marina
for Marina’s tour (Wine Bar Hopping in Athens)
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.
Marina was amazing!!!
for Marina’s tour (Wine Bar Hopping in Athens)
I would recommend this to anyone going to Athens. I have Celiac, and the care that was taken to assure I had fun and didn’t get sick was fantastic!!! We did a private tour with Marina ( I hope I have the spelling correct) she was a blessing, and made sure the extras my friend asked for were executed. The next time I’m there I will do this again!
Fun & Educational
for Marina’s tour (Wine Bar Hopping in Athens)
Marina took us to a couple very nice wine bars and pointed out another one
We learned a lot about Greek wines and tasted a half dozen or so
We found several that we will now keep an eye out for
Marina was fun and focused on our taste
Highly recommend
