We went on Tina's Athens food tour. It was wonderful. She took us to places we would not have know about. We got to taste some things and learn about the Greek culture. Tina is very personable and fun to talk to, she shared with us and us with her. I would definitely recommend to anyone going to Athens.

Tina’s “Alternative Athens” tour was our final excursion after almost a week in Athens—and I’d honestly have to say her fun & informative tour was tied with an afternoon in the port & fortress city of Nafplion as our favorite part of the trip.

Tina is a joyful, intelligent and interesting student of culture, history, and her city--and her well-organized, professionally-paced tour reflects that. We literally didn’t want our morning with her to end, but since we had to catch a flight to Rome after lunch, it had to! With Tina we discovered the Athens we’d overlooked for a solid week, and the stories and people behind them: the back streets and bustling markets, interesting neighborhoods and graffiti artists, hidden grottoes, and—because we asked— an inexpensive boutique herb- and soap-shop for gifts to give to friends as we schlepped through the rest of Europe.

My wife and I not only loved Tina’s cute & central B&B—but also her hip & off-the-beaten-path tour through this ancient and ageless city. We'd recommend it highly! - D&L McKnight

I found this food tour on trip advisor.com and with such good ratings and I had to try and it was so worth it. Tina is a marvelous guide . You may think you know Greek food but believe me his not all about feta and yogurt . We tasted our way around the city and never getting too stuffed to not try the next tasting. She answered our questions before we made them. Not too much walking either.

Tina is a wonderfull hostess, from the moment we contacted her she was of great help, specially planning to go to the Athens Festival, she informed us as soon as the programme was available, We stayed a few days in Athens and one of our highlights was THE FOOD TOUR with Tina which is a nice way of spending a morning in Athens, walking on the old neighbourhood and getting a not so touristic feel about the city and discover many old an beautuful food stores and tasting bits of its delicious food. We highly recommend it.

Tina is a natural wonder of the world. She is so well versed in her city's history but also its recent and more unusual stories. In fact, she is a natural storyteller and we were enraptured as she glided through different parts of Athens unlocking some of its surprising gifts for us. My favourite was the fish market and an area that was the old mafia stronghold. We only had two days in Athens as a stopover but her tour gave us such a diverse look into this incredible city, we cannot wait to get back. The tour really is something special.
