Overview
Getting to know Athens’ cuisine alone is difficult, unless you’re already familiar with the city and its gastronomy. With this private tour, a guide shows you around top food spots for an introduction to local gourmet delicacies. Visit Athens’ central market and sample cheese, wine and coffee—you’ll uncover the city’s culinary heritage with the benefit of a guide to yourself. The tour includes tastings and offers a choice of departures.

Highlights
  • Get to grips with Athens’ cuisine on a private half-day food walking tour
  • Taste goodies such as koulouria (sesame bread) and loukoumades (mini-donuts)
  • Visit the central market, and try cheese, coffee, wines, honey, and more
  • Private tour with a guide focused on you alone
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and greet your guide in Monastiraki Square. Then, hit the buzzing streets to learn about some of the Greek capital's specialities. Call at an old cafe to try koulouria, a sesame-sprinkled bread that’s popular at breakfast. Visit a pastry shop for a custard-filled filo delight and loukoumades—small honey-and-nut-drenched donuts—and then head for a bakery and cheese shop to sample a pie and local cheese. Next is Athens' central meat and fish market, Varvakios Agora, to browse the colorful stands. Savor home-produced Greek coffee and visit hidden delis to try fruit, olives, ham, and other produce. Stop at a souvenir shop and taste Greek yogurt, wine, aromatized vinegar, organic olive oil, and honey—perhaps buying some take-home gifts—and stroll Evripidou Street to relish the aromas of its herb and spice shops. After one last tasting, your tour finishes at the starting point.
