We did a walking food tour of Athens. Despina is an amaing guide who not only knew where to go, what to show us, and some delicious food, but she is truly passionate about her home. She always stopped traffic for us and made sure everyone stayed together and safe. She not only gave us great food to try, but... More

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip in Athens. We were so lucky to have Despina as our guide as she knows so much about everything and delivers the information so beautifully. There are so many beautiful tourist spots to visit but we were taken off the tourist grid and shown the side of Athens which is... More

We did the tour and it was ok. The guide was friendly but every time we stopped somewhere he spent more time talking about the prices and what we could buy at each place rather than the the food we were actually eating.

We had a fantastic time as part of a small group. It was a very full morning through lunch excursion and our guide, Marianna, was the best! She was not only energetic and personable, but her attention to us, our questions and her explanation of the food was outstanding! She had an excellent command of English and her inclusion of...

My husband and I booked this Food tour. Our guide was the owner/creator of the tour. She was very lovely and very knowledgeable about food. It was a very interesting tour, and we loved learning about the Greek food and the way Greek people cook. However, for the price paid we felt it was on the expensive side. With a... More

This late October tour is still aggravating me. It could have been a great tour. The guide was knowledgeable, the group convivial, the places we went were interesting, the food shared was very good but the guide raced from place to place.

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
