The food tour of Athens was a highlight of our trip to Athens. The group was small and the tour guide interesting and well versed in Athens history. The food was excellent and we had plenty of time to walk the calories off. After the tour we had time to visit the new Acropolis Museum which is a must to see. You walk over the excavated market area of Athens on glass floors a real experience and quite exciting.

This was an excellent, walking tour. You will get plenty of food and information. It was first thing in the morning so I suggest you don't eat a big breakfast. There is a lot of walking on this tour.

This was a fantastic way to see a new city from a different perspective. Despina our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Greek food and drink and how it was interwoven with other more recent cultures. Our tour group was nice and small and ranged in nationalities from Europe to Asia. We would strongly recommend this tour and will definitely use this tour company again.

We had a wonderful time on this "Shore Excursion." We were on a cruise ship and did not want to do the "typical" tour of the Acropolis, etc., so we found this Food Tour online and booked it right from the ship. They were waiting to pick us up right from the port and after a slight confusion about which tour we were on, we met our guide, who took us on a fabulous tour of Greek food. The guide (Artemis) was really great and it was fun being with a local for the day. It was great seeing stuff that the typical tourist would probably miss. Although I was somewhat nervous about getting back to the ship on time, our ride back met us at exactly the precise time we were told, so it was a wonderful day in Athens!!

Our guide Artemis was outstanding-funny, knowledgable, perceptive. She took us to a wealth of hidden culinary gems, which , I would submit, very few people would stumble upon on their own. My only request would have been to spend some time in the sausage and cured meat store sampling some of their wares. I have been recommending this tour to everyone I had met on Holland America's Rotterdam cruise, if for no other reason than to be led around by one's "nose' to sample some of Athen's food treasures by a larger than life guide reminiscent of the lead actress in " My Big Fat Greek Wedding "! A raving success, and one of our most precious memories on a trip chock full of them. cordially, David and Dorene Cohen

Sophie was an excellent guide and gave our small group of 8 an in-depth tour of a local part of Athens. Of the 12 stops we had tastings at eight so don't overdo breakfast before you go. We also learnt much about social history, current economics and a little politics so came away thinking it was money very well spent.

This tour is a fantastic way to see a more local area of Greece. Market visits and tastings at local shops are fabulous. Our guide was very knowledgable and accommodating. Although there are no meat tastings included, there isn't room for more food once you are done. Would highly recommend for someone who has already taken in all the typical tourist sights.

The taxi driver picked us up on perfect time. But he wasn't clear about where we were supposed to meet our tour guide, so we sat in the metro square for an hour and 15 minutes. Finally we called and were reunited. Our tour guide was positively charming! So knowledgeable and fun. This was one of the definite highlights of our two-week trip! I have told so many people about this delightful day in Athens, seeing another layer of the city because we had already visited the acropolis. Can't recommend her highly enough! Much better than any shore excurisons the ship offered. Big win!

My friend and I were on a 12 day cruise, hitting 10 ports of call. Athens was my favorite port all because of this tour. It was a wonderful experience, especially getting to see the non-tourist areas of Athens. The food was amazing and Despina was the friendliest, most knowledgable tour guide of our entire cruise. I would definitely do this tour again, or any other tour that Despina was leading!

Great way to spend limited time in Athens.

A very interesting way to understand the ways of Athens! The fish market, the meat market and the fruit and vegetable market were an impressive background to the actual food sampled. Good food seems to come with enthusiastic cooks and interesting people!

We had a great time. If you have seen all of the historical sites and are interested in seeing some of the "real" areas of Athens I would recommend this tour. We walked away stuffed and with the knowledge of how the Greek people really eat.

We really enjoyed this Tour. My Husband was not impressed when I told him I had booked this tour. He thanked me at the end!

My mother is 67 and not very physically active, but was able to enjoy the tour with no problems. She was extremely pleased with the guide, Vangelos. He was very professional and informative, and went to great lengths to ensure she made it back to the boat in time. Vangelos alleviated any fears my mother had of getting lost by personally escorting her to the place she needed to be in order to get back to the ship. She tasted breads, cheeses, fruits, pastries, juices and wines. The walking was reasonable (about a mile), with the biggest challenge being the cobblestone. The guide was very good at trying to keep them in the shade, which was great since the temperature was a balmy 90 degrees (f). Recommend a shopping tote since there was time for shopping on this tour, and wear casual clothing with comfortable shoes.

I was disappointed. First of all, this was suppose to be a food tour. Our first stop a small church where we spent a 45min talking about family and how it affected are eating habits. Then we walked a brisk pace there the city. She never looked behind see if we had left anyone behind. Finally one of us told her to
slow down.In fact one of the person on the tour tripped and fell. We maybe at the most visited 6 vendors.
Didn't really taste that much of the local foods. We stopped at a cafe for green beans and wine. I was expecting more for lunch. Then went to a gyro place later. After the tour she showed on the map where we to meet our returned transportation. We weren't even allowed time to browse thru a food store that
had unique olive oil, relishes, etc that she demo. Boy, did she take off after our tour was over as if she
didn't what to be here. Had much better food tours than this.
