So much great food! Our guide was able to adjust based on our preferences. She included a long walk which was necessary to gain an appetite for the next stop. This was my 4th culinary backstreet tour; they never disappoint!

This is now my fourth tour with Culinary Backstreets and the Athens version was just as excellent as the others. The tour guide, Constantine, was friendly, personable, and very knowledgeable about Athens, its history, and of course, food culture. I took the Moveable Feast tour and it was a great way to see a typical Sunday in Athens. I enjoyed walking through the different neighborhoods around Monastiraki Square, even ones that a typical tourist would not venture in to. The food at each of the stops were delicious, high quality, and authentically Greek. The tour was also perfectly paced as we went through all the stops within about 6 hours. There was some walking up hill but it was very much manageable and not strenuous. Overall, another fantastic tour by Culinary Backstreets!

Carolina was fantastic: She was very generous with her time and her expertise and she showed us aspects of Greek cuisine that tourists rarely experience. We ate incredible food and incredible amounts of food: some of it delicious, some of it interesting (and even challenging), all of it fascinating and so plentiful that we thought we would explode by the time restaurant number 4 (and 5, and 6) came by. The tour lasted much longer than promised because Carolina walked us all the way to our apartment. She also offered a great deal of advice beyond the tour about her favorite restaurants in the region. We learned so much and consider ourselves so fortunate to have taken this tour.

Wonderful exposure to the backstreets. Carolina knows the food, the people, the stories and the vibe of her city. She gave us an appetite for the delicious Greek specialities and a wealth of information on how the products come to your plate.
