Description

Do you want to experience a wine tour around Greece without setting foot out of Athens? Join us on an evening stroll around the wine bars of the city and learn all about the fascinating history and culture of Greek wine.

Greeks claim a long history of viticulture and vinification, and with 220 local varietals, you would say the whole country is a vineyard! Get ready for 4 tastings in two of the loveliest wine bars of Athens.

We will meet at Syntagma, the sleepless heart of Athens, for our first wine tasting in an elegant wine bar, before walking down the busy streets of Athens on our way to Monastiraki sq. Here's where cultures, traditions, and religions mingle! An old church, a former mosque, the Library of Hadrian, and Acropolis in the background. We will walk along the Ancient Agora, just to reach our next and final wine spot in Thissio area.

Tours can be scheduled to begin anytime in the evening, upon availability.

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!!!

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

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

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.
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
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!
