    Charismatic Christina !
    This was one of the best food tours I have done . I always do a food tour in a new destination to orient myself and this ticked all the boxes . Usually on food tours , they put in a few mediocre stops as well but every place we visited had merit. Christina was amazing giving us a blend of ancient history , culture and social commentary. She is one of those charismatic people that makes everyone feel special . If I wasn’t married and unable to speak Greek , I would have considered proposing to her 😀😀😀

    Food tour to know what Athens has to offer
    Penelope was my guide and was knowledgeable, cheerful, accommodating, and made everyone feel at home. She explained why each place was chosen and how they were special in the foods selected for us. I was solo in a group of 11 and I could not have asked for a better evening. We tried a variety of foods from street food to classic sit down family style restaurant affair. She provided a wealth of information about the history of some of the foods as well as information about varieties you might find elsewhere. I would highly recommend this tour and Penelope (if you can get her)

    Dimitri hosted a wonderful night, with fun and delicious food.
    Ok, gotta be straight up here. This was one of the best food tours we have done. And our wee family has done plenty of them, from China, to Poland to Vietnam. This was epic. A couple of reasons, but the main reason was Dimitri. His passion and personality made the night so enjoyable. Food choices were excellent and yummy. History and stories were perfectly pitched and interesting. Venue locations were also brilliant, creating a nice vibe for the tour. So yes, if you can, go on this tour, it was excellent.

    Fantastic Tour
    We did this tour on Sunday June 16th and it was amazing. The combination of delicious food, beverages, and history of the areas as well as the restaurants kept us involved and entertained the whole time. Our host was Greek and had spent some time in Australia provided a unique perspective of the food and culture as well.

    Fabulous tour led by an exceptional tour guide
    The tour was far above our expectations, made so by our guide Penelope. Charming and warm, she displayed an intimate knowledge of the foods we tasted and their ingredients. That was only surpassed by her encyclopedic knowledge of the history and archeology of Athens. She rates a 20 on a scale of 1 to 10.

    Such creative artwork
    Such a great tour! So many stories are portrayed through Art and this was wonderful to see on the side of buildings or garages. Our guide was so lovely and knowledgeable; I felt that we were kindred spirits throughout. The Ino art work was probably some of my favourite and seeing them in the city brilliant. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Athens.

    Gregoris was the best!
    Gregoris was the best host and showed us all around Athens and we loved it!! The food was the best and I don’t think we would have found these places on our own! He had lots of knowledge and even though we were jet lagged it was the best time!!! It was an overwhelming amount of food but so fabulous!

    Great Food and Great People!
    The food was amazing, Dmitri was very friendly and personable and the people we met were also lovely! We were introduced to various mezes, dinner and other foods. Dmitri seemed very knowledgeable of all the foods we were eating, knew the shop owners very well and was well versed in history as well. He even provided us some other recommendations for a separate visit. We will likely be revisiting some of the places we went to as well. Would recommend for anyone who want to be introduced to foods they would not think of and want to meet some great people.

Christina is a star! Me and my friend were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour so we had a chance to really get to know our host Christina. From the morning coffee and sesame seed ring to the lunch to end the tour we chatted like old friends and Christina certainly is full of the world famous Greek hospitality. We stopped several times on the way to see and taste the delights of the less touristy areas of Athens, a particular highlight is the 'deli' where we sat inside and shared a platter of cured meats and cheese with wines and raki, some of which we bought to take with us to eat and drink later. Another highlight was watching the skills of the pie maker as he 'rolled' out the filo pastry by hand. At no point did we feel any pressure to buy anything and all the tastings and lunch are included in the price of the tour and we certainly had full bellies. Thanks Christina.

Great experience! Chose the Athens Walking Food Tour specifically to jump start our time in Athens. My goal was to get an overview of food in Athens, a chance to see the city with a guide and meet some other people. Success…we met that objective!! My husband and I are in our 50s and have traveled a good bit in the US, Asia and Europe and have participated in a variety of tours. This tour was one of the best ones. Our guide, Pascal, was friendly, informative, kept the pace at an appropriate rate and ensured a lovely morning. The other guests were interesting and I had a chance to learn more about the world beyond the US. I felt our time and money was well spent. Great way to start out our Athens tour. Ohhhh…and it was HOT in Athens but our tour incorporated a lot of shade and wearing a mask was no big deal. We felt very comfortable.

Christina was our guide for our unforgettable EAThens tour on May 7. We have been on many city tours in different parts of the world but what makes a tour most memorable is when a guide is genuinely enthusiastic about wanting to share something special about what she loves about the place where she lives, in this case, a delectable sampling of the foods of Athens. By the way, the amount and variety of food alone on this tour is well worth the fee ! Beginning with the charcuterie sampling of meats, cheeses, olives rusks and wine, Christina explained which meats and cheeses were typical of each region as well as which were her personal favorites. On our trip to a restaurant specializing in sweet and savory pies made with filo dough, she explained that there were different kinds of filo dough for different types of baked pies. The meal at the taverna was a feast of wonderful small plates of delicious home style dishes that made us feel as if we were guests at someone’s Sunday family dinner. And in the extra mile department, Christina gave us a list of her personal favorite places to eat in Athens and responded to texted questions well after the tour. Thank you again Christina for giving us one of our most unforgettable experiences in Athens!

This tour is not what you would expect as a tourist. Pascal was an amazing host! This tour makes you feel like a citizen of athens and gets you right in the heart of the city. My wife and I had the pleasure being escorted around the city by our very friendly and knowledgeable host pascal! He took us to 5 different local, family owned, eateries that all specialized in certain specialty items. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a real feel of the city!

The BEST food tour we have taken EVER! Pascal is knowledgeable, warm and selects food beautifully. He entertains with stories, educates with history and the tour passes by in a flash. We saw meat, fish and spice markets and visited fantastic local spots. We will happily take this tour again, it is THAT delicious and fun. Do not hesitate to book this tour, it is phenomenal! A++++

Great Tour that you must experience in Athens. Pascal was a great guide! He was very knowledgeable, kind, funny, and answered every question our group had. We enjoyed all of the places he took us and provided just the right amount of details on everything we ate. The first stop was a favorite as we got to see the restaurant make the fresh Greek pies and they were DELICIOUS! Highly recommend this tour and Pascal if you are visiting Athens.

Eva was an absolutely outstanding guide. She made sure we ate enough, knew what we were eating, and even gave some history over some of the foods.
We were able to eat some favorites we might recognize, and try new things we may not have tried on our own.
Evangelia was so kind and patient, and truly has a passion for what she does. It was an incredible experience!

Thank you for a memorable experience.

We booked this tour our first day in Athens. It was a great way to get acclimated to the city. We met our tour guide, Christina, in a popular and easily accessible area. I would recommend that guides carry a sign, that would make it a lot easier to identify them in such a busy and congested area. Once started, we had an excellent walking tour, tasted many local dishes and learned about Greek culture and history.

Christina was the perfect guide and even sent us a list of restaurant recommendations for our last night in Athens.
