My friends and I joined the Walking Food Tour on our first day in Athens. Our guide was Vicki and she had another person along for the tour named Sophia. Despina did our booking. This was a fantastic way to experience Athens. As other reviewers said, we learned history while trying several excellent Greek foods. The guides were very friendly... More

Being of greek Cypriot background I wasn't sure whether I would learn much from it but my partner was very eager to go so we did. I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I've had on a holiday. Despina our tour guide made us feel welcome and the tour was not short of a few jokes... More

The tour took us around the centre of Athens - different markets, restaurants etc. Along with the different foods sampled, Despina added cultural and historical information to make this tour exceptional. My daughter and I enjoyed the variety of experiences and were so glad that we included this in our short visit to Athens! An excellent way to experience more... More

Highly recommended!!! Our guide was fabulous and really knew her Greek food and history! A great way to introduce yourself to the heart of Athens, the flavours and the smells! I would absolutely recommend to all! I can still taste the flavours! Be open and have fun!

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Despina, was great and knew her food history. She was able to relate it in a very entertaining way. I agree with some of the other reviews I read that this tour should be one of the first you do when you arrive. Well worth it!

We took the Chania Food Walking tour with Maria back in late October. We arrived at the designated meeting spot to find out that we were the only two that signed up for the tour, so we were able to get our own private tour of the island for the day. Maria's hospitality throughout the entire tour was nothing short... More

If you want to navigate Athens at a more intimate level this is a tour for you. My wife is a foodie and I tagged along because it is so fun to see her happy! I found myself really enjoying the tour as I learned the different themes around the city. The host was enthusiastic and we ate everything with... More

I appreciate Despina's passion for her work, it clearly shows. She was knowledgeable about this subject and I learned a lot from her. I love seeing the non touristy side of Athens, and this tour accomplished that. Come hungry as you literally will eat your way through the tour. I cannot recommend this enough.

Despina was a fabulous host. She spent time explaining the try origins of the various items found in traditional Greek cuisine. She took us to the markets, a great gourmet food shop, spice store, restaurants, etc. All of this staying away from the more touristy Plaka/Old town area. This is a must do for any foodie and anyone really interested... More
