A very enjoyable morning spent walking around the Psiri neighbourhood and learning about so many different Greek foods and the culture of this amazing city and country. Our guide, Artemis, was fantastic and took the time to give detailed information about the origins of all the food we tried as well as details about different things we saw and Greek... More

I traveled to Greece with a group of friends for one's 40th birthday. The birthday girl and I are "foodies" in the sense that we like good food and drink, although we aren't snobs about it. She thought that a food tour was a great diversion from the usual "rocks" and I agreed. Our guide was Despina who started talking... More

Booked this fun tour through Viator and Dorina our delightful and personable guide was very knowledgable about the neighborhood, the vendors, and the specialities that were offered for sampling, which included the Greek snack Koulouri, olive oils, honey, feta cheese, olives, Loukoumades doughnuts, Bougatsa, and delicious breads, among others. The central meat and fish market was amazing, and the fruit... More

Artemis was our guide for 10 adults. This tour and Artemis were recommended to us by friends. The tour was a great informative introduction to Greek foods. We ended the walking tour at a restaurant recommended by Artemis. The food was yet another taste of typical Greek tastes.

I loved this tour! Artemis was an excellent guide and we couldn't have asked for a better day (the rain held off on us until our very last stop)! I loved each place that we stopped at and I felt like we really got a true insiders look at the food in Greece. The tastings at each place are more... More

The Athens Walking Food Tour was the perfect way to begin our vacation in Greece. Our very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, Artemis, started by educating us about which foods are truly Greek and which were influenced or claimed by other countries. It included a combination of food stands, shops, markets, and restaurants. It lasted a little longer than scheduled, but... More

We had friends recommend this tour and were so thrilled that we followed their recommendation. It was informative, fun and full of delicious Greek delights. Our guide, Artemis, provided us with so much information and made it fun at the same time. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens.

I was on a cruise and visited Athens. I did not want the typical cruise excursion and I also wanted a unique experience. Well, this tour delivered. I was picked up from the cruise port and transported to a central location to meet the group. The tour started with the guide telling us what is and what is not Greek... More

We booked not really knowing what to expect. Our guide was Despina, who combined a knowledge of the origin of Greek food, with history and an insight into Greek culture. The walking is easy. You sample many things, donuts, olive oils, cheese etc. the shops you go into to sample, you would probably never find on your own, and you... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
