Vivian was a wonderful host at her tour.We feel as a real locals with visiting places where locals do.Greek traditional food is magnificent but try to explore it by professional guide as Vivian.Highly recommend this tour especially for couples who is short in Athens.Its not just about only food and drinks, it's also about traditions and history.And one more tip - do not eat before the tour!!!

I did this with a small tour group and we had the most fabulous time. Vivian is lively, vivacious and a wonderfully knowledgeable guide to Greek food. We explored little shops, bars, takeaways and restaurants: hearing the history & smelling the aromas of, then tasting a wide variety of Greek food & drinks. We were welcome at every spot with smiles and generous tastings. Absolutely everything we tried was just delicious: feather-light loukoumades, cooked just before we ate them, Greek coffee prepared in the old way with tiny individual metal pots sitting in heated sand, the very best souvlaki I have ever eaten (& I love souvlaki!), little spinach pies, some wines, a potent spirit (sorry, name forgotten) and the mastic liqueur of Greece. And when we felt we couldn't fit another bite in, we managed to of course finishing our wonderful tour at a yoghurt maker's with heavenly yoghurt with drizzled honey. I highly recommend this tour!!

A friend recommended Vivian’s authentic Greek food tours after they had visited earlier in the summer. Vivian was quick to respond and accommodate our request to arrange a tour on our last night in Greece! We love Greek food and wanted to ensure that we tried authentic Greek food on our travels, away from the tourist traps. We were lucky enough to have a private tour with Vivian and my boyfriend and I agreed it was one of the highlights of our trip! Vivian was knowledgeable; super sweet and a lot of fun. The tour was seamlessly organized and timed. We had the most incredible food and were completely full from all of the tastings! From the authentic souvlaki, the mouth watering Greek yoghurt, Greek pies, and then finishing off the tour with a drink at a bar that was on my list to visit but we didn’t get a chance, the entire tour was fantastic. Even after our tour had ended, Vivian was so sweet to take us to a store where we could buy some seasonings, honey, oil etc to take home with us! After leaving Greece, Vivian made the effort to reach out, ask about our remaining travels and share some amazing Greek recipes with me. Vivian is a gem, and I highly recommend her food tours, you won’t be disappointed!!!

My husband and I were in Athens before leaving on a cruise and we spent one evening with Vivian eating our way through central Athens. We made at least 7 stops at various restaurants and markets over 5 hours to enjoy Greek delicacies all from local businesses. There was so much food, that we had to leave at least half on our plates because we were getting so full. Vivian shared her knowledge of food and the city with us along the way. She is a pleasure to be with. We highly recommend her.
