A wonderful introduction to the variety of food and drink available in Athens. Loved visiting the markets, the sequence of establishments, and the foods we got to taste--just didn't have enough room to eat it all!

Stelios was a fantastic guide! He was extremely knowledgable and genuinely excited to share his culture’s food with us. I walked away from this tour with a new understanding of Greece’s history and how it influenced their delicious food. Would recommend to any food lover!

I’ve done 3 of these tours now in different countries/cities and they are worth every penny! It’s such a great way to explore a city and try local foods that are delicious and you might not otherwise find. I’ll be doing it again!

Our Athens food tour was a fantastic way to explore the city, and Stelios was the best guide ever. The variety of the food, the interesting stories behind the artisans, and Stelios’ commentary was just 10/10. Loved it.
