Definitely the BEST food tour I ever took (an I took a few for my vegan travel blog). Despina was our guide, what a lovely experience I had with her, a woman with so much knowledge about food & culture. I didn't learn only about the typical foods of Greece, but also about the culture and mentality of our Greek... More

I highly recommend this activity as a great way of touring Athens and learning about Greek history and culture. Evangelos was an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. It was a delightful experience, I thoroughly enjoyed sampling traditional Greek food, both sweet and savoury, although I probably could have done with more food!

My husband, son (17) and I had a three and a half hour walking tour of the food shops cafes, restaurants and markets of Athens, with the lively and very well informed Despina. It was February and so rather cold but she held our attention with ease as she threaded her way through the busy streets around the Flea Market.... More

We took the Food Walking Tour with Despina. This was the second time taking the tour - this time, with my husband who thoroughly enjoyed the insightful and personalised tour (small groups make it really personal). Despina's knowledge and understanding of Greek food, its Greek and 'other' origins and her excellent choice of places to sample food and products gave... More

My daughter and I enjoyed this evening so much last year, I brought my husband on our return to Athens this year. He said that this evening was the highlight of our visit in Athens - closely followed by our Walking Food Tour and Acropolis Tour/Museum tour. Ilia is a fantastic cook and a marvellous teacher who walked us through... More

We spent a wonderful evening learning to make traditional Greek appetizers, salads, and a main course of lamb/potatoes. We enjoyed cooking, drinking wine, and having dinner with families from other countries. Warning: The class lasts 6 hours. We began at 5:30pm and didn't leave the restaurant until 11:30pm. The tour description stated 3 hours - but it was closer to... More

My partner and I went on the Athens Food tour in October with Despina as our guide. Despina was extremely informative and very passionate about both Athens and its history, especially from the perspective of its culture and food. Our group was small which was a bonus and covered a few different nationalities. We would definitely recommend this tour in... More

We loved the food tour in Athens that was led by Vicky. Vicky gave us a real taste of the local food and culture. We visited many small places that we would never find ourselves and we also had the opportunity to hear about the special traditions. Vicky was very knowledgeable and it was a real pleasure to discuss with... More

My husband and I did a food tour with Artemis one of the two days we had in Athens. She was so knowledgeable and personable, and the food selection was on point. We made several stops that we loved so much we bought things for friends and family, and it was all affordable and genuine. It was a leisurely walk,... More

Here's a great way to get a behind the scenes tour of Athens... The guide takes you to a nice mix of markets, shops, deli's and restaurants. Very interesting and fun way to get a non touristic perspective and taste the spices, fruit, olives and oils that form a foundation of Greek food.
