The highlight of the tour was Artemis, she was very knowledgeable and seemed to truly enjoy sharing Greek culture with the group. Most of the food was excellent, and those foods or tasting combinations that were not to my liking were enjoyed... More

Our guide Diana did a great job of introducing us to the taste of Athens! We sampled meats, cheeses, wine, olive oil, sweets, and then had a quick lunch at the end. Best decision we made!

My wife and I were struggling a lot to find real cretan food without getting into tourist traps. Fortunately we found the food tour in Chania guided by Maria. We were really lucky when we did the tour beginning of August to be the only guests of the tour, so we got it all private. Maria is a very nice... More

She had a good knowledge of the origins of all the food we tasted and dispelled myths. Lovely way to start a holiday and understand Greek life and food. Artemis also had... More

We spent a wonderfully delectable and informative 3 hours with Devina who walked us on an incredible food tour. The food was gorgeous - we want to the central markets and some small food shops And a taverna we'd never have found on our own. The tastings were scrumptious and her cultural information was so very informative. We returned to... More
