    This was a great way to see a new city by eating our way through it! We were introduced to lots of different Greek foods through the markets and restaurants, finishing with delicious gyros. Definitely recommended.

    This was my first international walking food group tour, and I have to say, the bar was set very high from this excursion. I participated in this walking food tour when I was in Athens back in Dec. of 2016, and I have to say it was definitely a major highlight of my trip to Athens! Despina was our guide, and she was absolutely phenomenal! She did a great job of integrating history lessons, historical and modern greek culture into the greek food, and we had plenty of chances to try real greek food, in places where local greeks, and not places caterintg to tourists, go grocery shopping, purchase a street stall snack, or even go to have an authentic Greek lunch. We even had to time purchase some food items as a shop that is family owned and sold locally grown and produced Greek products like olive tapenade, olive oi, soap, Mastic, etc. If you are in Athens, take this tour, and if you are lucky, you will get Despina. Next time I am in Athens, I definitely plan to take this tour again!

    What a fun tour! Georgia was our guide, and she was fantastic from start to finish. She grew up in Athens so she knows all the best places to go. I highly recommend this hands-on experience!

    Lucy was an amazing guide who gave us lots of history behind the food that we were trying and also introduced us to some outstanding new types of food. I would definitely do again when I go back to Athens!

    We enjoyed our food tour with Georgia. It was fun! And we had a fun group of Israelis and a Brit with us. Georgia brought us to many places and we tried various food items we wouldn't have tried otherwise. The backstreets where the Greeks shop and eat were particularly fascinating. We loved the loukoumades and the Fotsis herb store especially. It's fascinating to see the rows and rows of spices and herbs there. Many Greeks shop there for their spices, so you know it's the real deal. Just be prepared to go on an empty stomach and eat to your heart's content.

    The small group food tour actually had too many people, in my opinion. The first stop had us sampling A LOT of olive paste and olive oils with bread. The guide had to squeeze around the tiny store while we sampled close to ten different items. It was good but time consuming. We were leaving on a cruise at 2pm and we had to leave before the tour was over to get back to the hotel in time - and had to take a cab to do it because the time was that tight.
