One of the highlights of our visit. Our guide Kostas was wonderful. He engaged our daughters (ages 10 and 13) from the very start of our walking tour. We chose the afternoon tour which started at 2:00. Do not eat before this tour. Our first stop was to taste "Greek pies" Spanikopita (spinach) and also one with chicken. Then we... More

We went on this tour at 9:30am on our first full day in Athens. What a treat! Our guide, Dorina, was friendly, knowledgeable, and a joy. We tried a variety of classic Greek foods and snacks, and everyone was full by the end of the tour. We went into different shops, toured the markets, and sampled street food and food... More

Our tour guide for the Athens Walking Food Tour was Artemis and she was an amazing tour guide! She told us about the Greek foods we were enjoying, but she also helped us learn about the Greek culture. We went back to several of the places we visited on our second day because the food was so fantastic. I would... More

We’d done food tours in other cities, finding them a great way to be introduced to local cuisine. Athens Food Tours was no different, and we highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Marianna, was very knowledgeable and did a great job at keeping our eclectic group of about a dozen people engaged throughout the 3.5-hour tour. Our tour included stops... More

We did this tour with my family and everyone had a great time. My teenage children had a fun and interesting time meandering through the markets and stopping at local food/gourmet shops. There were also suitable options for vegetarians. Our guide gave us a map so we later returned to the loukoumades shop to have a final Taste before leaving... More

I enjoyed kicking off our trip to Greece with this food tour. I would recommend doing this toward the beginning of your trip so all the food is new to you. The guide was very friendly and nice and even gave a little history background as we walked around. We've done food tours in other cities before so in comparison... More

It is the Mediterranean cuisine that most Europeans don’t have an obesity problem. Fresh fruits and vegies, leggumes, cheese, olives, virgin olive oil, spices, local sweets and above all goodwill. We are so happy you enjoyed our Food tour and you are right recommending it at the beginning of the visitors' trip so they can know what to eat during... More

The food tour I participated with Artemis Olympidou was fantastic! We got to see the "real" Athens and try some unique delicacies. Very informative and enjoyable. Comfy shoes are a must!

We'd already been in Athena for 2 days before it was finally time for the food tour. The tour guide Despina was amazing! She told us all about the different origins of various Greek dishes and guided us around a local area of traditional Greek shops and the fish and fruit market. We got to try so much great food...

The guide was lovely and worked hard with the group. We had already tasted most of the foods and toured round the meat and veg marketsourselves, so very little was new. The lunch at the end was very tasty and the session in the olive oil shop was interesting. We were standing up in shops for some considerable time so... More

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.
