Our group of 10 had the absolute best time on our food tour with our guide, Yiannis Ninos. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the local flavors in Athens. It was a highlight of the trip for everyone in our group. We tasted a wide variety of flavors that was custom catered to our tastes. We found that everything we ate and everywhere we stopped was the best example of that particular dish when we tried them other places over the remainder of trip. I truly felt the "Athens Insider" experience. We had so much tasty food and learned a lot about the history and cultural influences of each dish as well. On top of that we all had a blast with Yiannis! He was excellent and gave us great recommendations for other places to try outside of the tour as well. If you go to Athens, I recommend this tour as an absolute must and ask for Yiannis.

Our guide, George Madianos, was fantastic. We learned a ton and enjoyed a lot of great food and drink. Here's a perfect day in Athens: do an Acropolis tour in the morning; then do the food tour with George right afterwards. Best way to experience everything Athens has to offer.

I traveled with my daughter and granddaughter last month. One of the highpoints of our visit to Athens was the all day private tour to Delphi. All the details of the reservation and trip were covered efficiently by Mariliza during the planning process. The actual trip was flawless and perfect for a ten year old who loves anything and everything about Greek mythology. The description of the Divine Delphi day fit our needs perfectly and the focus on a child was very important to us. Our driver Vasilis was punctual when he picked us up at 8:00am in a spacious MB van that was outfitted with a basket of snacks and drinks. Vasilis shared information about a variety of topics as we drove for 2.5 hours to Delphi with a stop for a Greek turnover snack and bathroom break.

When we arrived at Delphi Vasilis escorted us to our private guide George who first spent about an hour in the museum covering the highlights of the collection and framing his narrative to suit a serious ten year old. His explanations were spot on! After hitting the important exhibits we ventured outside and started the scenic walk up to the Temple of Apollo. He did not belabor minute topics but painted a picture of how the site became such an important part of ancient Greek history. I think my granddaughter was able to imagine how the ruins functioned 2500 years ago. After our time with George we met up wtih Vasilis who drove us to a nearby restaurant where he had made reservations for lunch at a corner table with a magnificent view of the valley below. Lunch was a leisure break and about 90 minutes later Vasilis picked us up for the final activity of our time in Delphi.

We drove to a small park with an even better view of the valley below where we met Eleni who was the artist who would lead us through a painting activity. She we well prepared with all the necessary equipment and supplies. After a brief lesson on style and technique we each created a rough sketch of the scene. We worked at easels and with her minimal guidance we painted our version of scene below. Eleni noted differences in our interpretations and we painted for more than an hour. We also giggled and laughed as we enjoyed every minute. We signed our masterpieces and packed up for the return trip to Athens. Vasilis was an excellent driver and we arrived back at our apartment about 7:30pm. It was a very long day but we all enjoyed every aspect of the day. Everyone involved made sure my granddaughter was properly "entertained" and all logistics of the trip were perfect. It was an expensive activity but well worth the cost since the outcome was so positive.

We did a food tour of Athens with George and it was fantastic. Lasted about 5-6 hours and it was such a fun variety of foods that were able to enjoy in multiple settings. Everything from snacks, meals, treats, oils, seafood. Absolutely loved it and would recommend without hesitation.

Had an amazing "treasure hunt" experience with Nikki on our last full day in Athens. Our kids, two 7 year olds and my 11 year old, had done the 4 hour mythology Acropolis tour a few days before and liked it enough but were exhausted and a little bored by the end. I was a bit worried that a 4 hour treasure hunt walking/running around the city would exhaust them but they LOVED every second, and let me tell you my kids are not easy to please. This tour was so well done.. a great mix of interesting and fun lessons combined with games, ice cream samples and treats, Turkish coffee making in one of the oldest greek coffee restaurants, that kept them (and the adults) entertained for hours. Our guide, Nikki, was wonderful as well and completely contributed to the success of our day. I have done other tours catered to kids in other cities in Europe but this tour was by far my kids' favorite. I would sincerely recommend this particular tour to anyone with kids for a truly unique experience.
