I was in April 2015 in Thessaloniki and experienced Eat & Walk tour. It was very interesting for me, because it was great opportunity to taste original Greek food - many types of cheeses, olives, gyros, bugatsa... I especially enjoyed tasting marmalades made of many types of fruits, and some vegetables, such as carrot! It is very delicious. In the... More

The Eat and Walk tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Thessoloniki. We started the tour by meeting at the cooking lab, enjoying a cup of Greek coffee and a little history lesson of the area as it related to food. We walked to various markets and shops sampling food all along the way. Despina gave us... More

We met Despina at the Eat and Walk cooking lab; located within walking distance of Thessaloniki's busiest shopping street. She took us to several markets places, while telling us stories about Thessaloniki's history and its people. At the market places we had ample opportunity to smell things and try things. Back at the lab we started the actual cooking. My... More

We did Tour 3 with Eat and Walk in Thessaloniki. We have done other food walking tours before, but this was by far the best we have experienced. We started with a traditional breakfast and introduction to the history of food in Thessaloniki/Greece. We then walked through the food markets and went to local speciality shops to learn more about... More

Friendly staff and fantastic food and drink. Shouldn't miss if you visit the city. Getting a historical culinary perspective in the office before the tour start accompanied by tasty bougatsa, koulouria and Greek coffee added nicely to the full experience. Thank you Despoina.

My mom and I took route 2 with Despina and had a GREAT time! It was our first morning in Thessaloniki and the food tour and history were the perfect introduction to the city. There were 4 of us total in the tour, so it was small and intimate. Despina started the tour in her kitchen/office with Greek coffee (I... More

I recently took the Eat and Walk tour, route 1, with a friend and my college-age cousin, and we had a wonderful time. We learned a lot about some of the local foods, and enjoyed sampling even the things we didn't care for (like spoon sweets). The guides were knowledgeable and spoke English well, and we even got a great... More

Thessaloniki is not only a great place to visit, it is a great place to eat in. Esmeralda, who operates and guides the Eat and Walk tours, will not only give you the insider view and knowledge of the best places to shop for food and eat -- she will also show you the city, and its history, through what...

Had a great time here! My mom and I found this place via tripadvisor and so glad we did. We chose route 4, where we actually cook a three course lunch, and so glad we did. Esmeralda, the owner, was quick with the emails which I greatly appreciated. For about $45 each, we walked around two local markets with a... More
