I found the tour to be exceptionally fascinating! I was blown away by the knowledge and the theories of the evolution of food in Europe that came with this tour. It brings a totally new perspective on what we consider traditional in modern days (even very recently), mostly as a result of globalization. My only reason for not giving the... More

Artemis was a wonderful guide, leading us through the streets of Monastiraki to sample all sorts of local cuisine (and debunking a few myths about what foreigners think about traditional Greek food!). We tasted local olive produce, cured meats, spirits, desserts, all delicious and fascinating! I made the mistake of having a full breakfast before the tour so I was... More

Our guide Artemis is fun and knowledgable. She shows us the street food that Athens' people love, lead us thru the meat and fish market, spice shop that you shouldn't miss, and a lot more. We have so much fun and learn a lot about Greek culture. This is a must if you plan to visit Athens. Remember, Greek people... More

This was the first European food tour we have taken and we are hooked. Our guide Artemis was charming and informative. We learned so much about local food but also about Greek culture. We had wonderful stops to taste many treats and also did a little souvenir shopping on the way. Our last stop was for a nice treat of... More

My friend and I did the Athens Food Tour at the end of our trip to Greece. It was a great way to wrap up our wonderful excursion. Eating and laughing and learning our way around Athens with Dorina! A wonderful way to spend a few hours. Definitely make time for this tour, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

I could honestly say this tour was great. My wife and I loved learning about the food culture and history of greece and found it very informative and, more importantly, delicious. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to many different food shops around athen's more 'non-touristy' areas. We left the tour having had a good time, but also... More

My sister and I did a half day Food Tour of Athens. What fun. Artemis Olympidou was a wealth of information and kept us completely entertained. The pace was perfect and we came home with some great spices, oil etc. I highly recommend this tour.

We regularly book "eat and walk" tours as we travel around Europe, and by far and away this was the best one we've experienced. Despina, our guide, was a wealth of knowledge, funny, and absolutely wonderful with children (ours are picky eaters). All-in-all, this tour is well worth the price.

My husband and I went to Greece this last September. We were recommended the Athens Food Tour from a friend and it ended up being our favorite activity while in Athens! Not only do you get to eat a lot of Greek food, you also get to see the city, learn some history, and explore local shops. We highly recommend!
