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

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

Had a great time with Despina on our Athens Food Tour. We were able to do this 1/2 day tour before boarding our cruise, so was really great to be able to fit this unique tour in before leaving Athens. Despina knows all the quaint, "mom & pop" type stores and markets so we really got a feel for how... More

It was our second time in Athens and we were looking for something different. We loved our experience! Our guide, Vicky, is a real Greek local. She is fun and knowledgeable and really interesting! She answered all our questions and much more! We were really able to take a look and a taste of real Greek modern traditions. The food... More

With our past good experience with local food tours when we travel, we head straight to a local food tour when we arrived in Athens. It did not disappoint! We enjoyed the walk around the market, the taste of fresh strawberries and the sampling of many olive and honey products from the island of Crete! Not to mention the loukoumades,... More

Booked this one through Viator and our guide Dorena was superb. Very knowledgeable about historic aspects of food as well as current Greek eating. We enjoyed the wander throught the market areas picking up some tasty snacks for later as well as wonderful visits to a spice shop (had to buy some saffron) and a boutique produce store selling products...

My first visit to Athens and what a start. Despina is an excellent tour guide who lives and breathes Greece. Not only providing food for our taste as we made our way around Athens but giving us the history of the food. I have arrived home and planning a greek lunch for my friends using items purchased on the tour.... 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.
