    Best tour guide!
    This tour was amazing! Our tour guide, Dimitris, was the most informative and captivating guide we have ever had (and we have taken plenty of tours in Europe). As an archaeologist himself, there is no question he could not answer. Since I had not been able to book our acropolis tickets ahead of time, we switched to a tour of the (nearly empty) museum at 9 am, taking all the time we needed to understand the site. The 3rd floor of the museum is a simulation of the Parthenon with the real marbles (when available). We also discovered other significant founds from the digs. Later during the day (as the sun was lower in the sky), we were able to visit the site on our own. This was perfect for our teenagers and us!

    A foodie’s experience!
    Constantina was awesome. She did a great job of explaining in detail the food that was served. The places she took us were amazing. The food was incredibly delicious. We enjoyed the olive oil, wine and pistachio butter tasting too. We highly recommend this tour!

    Don’t hesitate, sign up for this tour!
    Our foodie tour was outstanding. Niki our guide was so knowledgeable and explained the origins, cultural heritage, purpose, nutritional value and so much more about everything we ate and drank. I have been to Athens six times and have Greek heritage, so I thought I knew a lot about Greek food, but this tour taught me so much more. So, whatever your background, you will lave this tour.

    Great food tour
    Outstanding food tour with Niki as our guide. She took us to 7 places and we enjoyed numerous tastings at each venue. She provided great insights about the restaurants, the food we were eating and history of Greece. Great way to get to know Athens and tasty food items beyond the typical souvlaki or gyro. Highly recommend!

    Our guide, Nicki, made the night. It was our last night in Greece and the evening far surpassed our expectations. The tour is a bit pricy but frankly it was money well spent.

    Awesome Athens Food Tour!
    This food walking tour was fantastic! Euginia (sp?) was very knowledgeable about all the local places, the markets, etc and provided several recommendations for restaurants which we took full advantage of. We had only 6 people on the 10am morning tour which made for an excellent small group experience. Come hungry! Highly recommend this activity!

Our group of 8, (4 adults and 4 children) took the Heraklion for Foodies tour with Athina the last week of Oct 2019. We've done many food tours in all the European cities that we visit and this was by far the best food tour we have experienced! Athina's English is excellent. We went to so many small places that we would have never found on our own. The food was all traditional Cretan food and it was so delicious! We picked the fish we wanted from the fish monger's stand and they cooked it right there for us. It doesn't get any fresher than that! The local honey shop was also a favorite as the thyme and rosemary honey was different than any we had ever tasted. We visited a few different types of bakeries and came home with plenty of sweets to enjoy the next day. Don't eat before the tour. We were so stuffed! The food was all delicious and we are so grateful to Athina for sharing her love of Iraklion and Cretan food with us. :-)

Our guide Athina was amazing. She was so passionate about the food and culture of Crete, and supportive of all the local businesses, has to be highly commended. She only took us to cafe's and restaurants that are her favourite destinations, and it showed with how warmly she was greeted by everyone.
We tasted so much of the local delights we were soon full to bursting, and then more food came.
With the Cretin tradition of providing complimentary desserts and the local wine Raki at the end of each large meal, to the fascinating local herbal apothecary, we cannot recommend this tour highly enough. We love foodie tours & have participated in many all over the world, but this one is the best by far

Athina was the best! She shared her passion for all of her favorite food stops in the Heraklion Center City. From the great bakeries to the cheese stop to the herbologist to a fantastic 9 best Cretan foods at a classic locals only restaurant, we loved every minute! Highly recommend this one. You will not be disapointed!
