Flavors of Athens private food tour
From US$69.61
Touring Athens’ food scene on your own, you’ll probably just skim the surface of the city’s cuisine. Get a taste of local flavor with a guide who takes you to food destinations beloved by Athenians. Taste loukoumades (donuts), sample Greek coffee, and peruse the central market with your guide’s tips and pointers. All tastings included for added value, and because it’s a private tour, you’ll get plenty of personal attention.
What to Expect
Greet your guide at your central Athens hotel on foot or at a convenient meeting point, and set off to explore the city’s culinary scene. As you walk, learn how Athenians are passionate about food, and hear about their daily cooking routines and favorite ingredients, techniques, and recipes.
Delve into backstreets for an authentic take on the local gastronomy, and visit bakeries, specialized food shops, and more to taste sweet and savory delicacies.
Chat with artisans and vendors for insight into their creations, and visit the central market to peruse wares from across Greece. Plus, tap into your guide’s local knowledge for ideas on tasty souvenirs to buy.
Dishes you may try include straight-from-the-oven pies, souvlaki (meat skewers), loukoumades—honey-soaked mini-donuts—and cold cuts. Stop for a traditional Greek coffee and local spirits that are part of the fabric of life here.
Your tour concludes at a central location.

One of the highlights of our trip!

We were not looking forward to traipsing around Athens, (the Plaka, we thought) especially with my wife having a sore foot but how wrong we were. This was one of most memorable afternoons of our 14-day trip to Greece. Yorgos (George) was so knowledgeable and...More

Best food tour

George was fantastic, probably the best tour guide we ever had. On our cruise from Venice to Athens, we had a private tour in every port, by far he was the best. Personable, funny and very knowledgeable.
