Description

Kick-off your culinary exploit alongside your local guide with a walking tour of Plaka. Get insight into the local culture and marvel at the imposing monuments of the region that reveal the rich history of Athens, such as the Tower of the Winds, the Roman Forum, and the monument of Lysicrates.

Next up is our 2-hour tasting Greece workshop, where a food connoisseur will help you learn the origins of numerous Greek spirits and products as well as their production methods. Taste local varieties of cheese like 'kasseri', 'metsovone', and feta, kalamata olives, cured sardines, and 'sygklino' smoked ham and wash them all down with a glass of two different local wine varieties.

Learn how to pair Greek wine, 'raki' and 'tsipouro' with the most compatible cheese, charcuterie, and other PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) products, and end your tasting experience with the unique mastic liqueur of Chios.

To help you visualize each region’s produce, we give you your very own gastronomy map of Greece! Use it during your workshop and take it home with you as a memento of your introduction to products that will surely become household favorites!

Penelope, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She provided us with drawings and renditions of what the ruins had looked like in ancient times. She answered any questions we had. We walked through some great historically neighborhoods. If you have a limited amount of time, I would recommend this tour.

Xenia was a great guide. We visited all of the sites and went at a good pace. We had lunch at a small restaurant which was nice. Highly recommend this tour.

Tour is a great way to see the Acropolis and surrounding neighborhoods. The Acropolis area is stunning. The neighborhood around is bustling. Our tour guide Eleni was expert and accomodating. Do wear walking shoes, as it is a lot of walking and it is quite warm in Athens in June. Older travelers should probably do this in pieces.

Our tour with Anastasia was wonderful! We had a really great time. First of all, it was well organized; we were able to skip lines and avoid crowds (though it was still crowded, but it appeared that it got even more crowded afterwards). More important, we were all impressed by the knowledge of Anastasia and her gentleness. Her love for Greek ancient history is simply amazing, and we learned a lot from her. And the half vehicle option was appropriate for us, because both of our kids were quite tired after lunch, and it would’ve been very hard for them if they had to walk.

We absolutely loved our Best of Athens tour with Vicky. She was the best! Vicky was a wealth of knowledge and provided great background and context to everything we saw. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone curious about Greek culture, history and the origins of Western civilization.
