My boyfriend and I joined the tour right at the beginning of our round trip of Greece. This way we learned interesting things about the Greeks and their food. Otherwise we wouldn´t have known Mastic or the difference between Raki, Ouzo and Tsipouro etc. We have participated in food tours before in Asia and I have to say that these... More

My mom and I recently did this food tour and we really loved it. It was a great way to sample some of the Greek food and the culture, as well as have a nice walk around Athens. We didn't have any issues with the efficiency as some other reviewers had- we went from place to place smoothly and while... More

We had a great time with this food walking tour and it was a nice break from museums. Our guide was Artemis and we found her knowledgeable and friendly! However, I will echo another reviewer...our time was mostly taken by what I think is lack of efficiency. Better care should be taken to amount of people attending or organization at... More

My family and i recently went on the basic Athens food tour while our cruise was in port. 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

Wonderful morning walking through Greek everyday life. Artemis engaged with both adults and teenage children beautifully. There was a sense of positivity that pervaded the whole tour . 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
