    This was a great way to explore Monastiraki. Penelope was awesome and engaged with everyone while showing us all the sights. The food was delicious!

    Absolutely brilliant. Great tour with a great guide Nikki.
    A wonderful over view of Greek food and customs. Nikki gave us a real sense of Greek food culture in a several authentic settings. Excellent value for money. Have a small breakfast before you set off as lots of food on the tour !

    Our recent Athens food tour with Pavlina was extraordinary, elevating our Greek trip into a memorable adventure. Pavlina's infectious enthusiasm for Athens' culinary history and neighbourhoods was evident from the outset. As a true connoisseur, she led our small group of ten on a journey of deeper connection with the city, its stories, and, most deliciously, its food.
    What made this tour exceptional was its perfect fusion of history and cuisine. As we meandered through charming Acropolis neighbourhoods, Pavlina effortlessly intertwined tales of the city's past with its vibrant gastronomy. It felt like walking through living history, with each corner telling a unique story conveyed through delectable dishes.
    For us, a culture's essence resides in its cuisine, and this culinary voyage delighted. Pavlina guided us to authentic specialty food stops, each unveiling a layer of Athens' culinary heritage. These meticulously chosen spots, steeped in history or known for local delicacies, provided treasures at every turn.
    One moment, we savoured spanakopita in a cosy, family-owned bakery; the next, creamy tzatziki in a nostalgic taverna. It was a treasure hunt of culinary gems.
    A pro tip? Arrive hungry! We chose the morning tour and wisely skipped breakfast, allowing our taste buds to dance through a spectrum of dishes, leaving us thoroughly content.
    Pavlina, our guide, was not just an encyclopaedia of Athens and Greece but also warm and accommodating. Her willingness to answer our random questions transformed the tour into an educational culinary journey.
    In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend this tour if you're in Athens. It's a unique and immersive way to delve into the city's history, culture, and, most importantly, its delectable cuisine. Our heartfelt thanks to Pavlina for crafting an unforgettable Athens adventure. Embark on this culinary odyssey; you won't regret it!

    Excellent food tour. They warn you not to eat within 3 hours of the tour starting and there's a reason for this. There is so much food! You must pace yourself through the tour as otherwise you would be too full to try everything.
    There was such a great range of food to try from desserts, peanuts, olives, coffee, to a selection of Greek tapas, souvlaki and wine.
    Our guide (I think its Durella?) was excellent. She explained why we were at each stop and answered our random questions about Athens on the way.
    Would definitely recommend booking this tour - you would not be disappointed.

    This was an AMAZING tour. There were 4 of us on this tour, and we all have different food tastes and preferences. All 4 of us came out of this tour amazed by the food and drink, completely and pleasantly full and satisfied, and so happy to have met our guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable, and gave us great insight into the city. It was like we spent the time with a good friend. Lots of laughs and fun while still learning about the city and its food. Great choice for a food tour.

    My husband and I had the best time with Ilias. We were with a group of 3 people plus Ilais and it was an absolutely perfect size! He was a wonderful guide and gave us an authentic Greek experience. We visited quaint restaurants that we never would have visited if it wasn’t for him. Ilias was fun, nice, and personable. We had the opportunity to eat/drink coffee, pastries, seafood, beef and more! We have never been on a food tour and would highly recommend.

    Such an amazing tour!!!! We went last summer and we still brag about it. Coming back again this summer and hope to be able to get another tour. I tell all our friends that Irene made us feel like hanging out with a new friend. I have family in Athens and Irene took us to cool, unique, traditional places that they didn’t even know about but want to go. If you want to enjoy a an amazing fun night out discovering Athen, book this tour. Everyone could book a reservation at a popular Instagram place but Irene will show you an evening of discovery, tradition, history, contemporary, cool and lots of fun. Yes, I promise all that will be on the tour.

    We absolutely loved our tour! Natali showed us hidden gems around Athens while giving us detailed history of the city and answering our (many) questions! We stopped in places we would have never found on our own and were impressed by the amount of food included! This is a must-do while in Athens! Come hungry!

    We started our Greece trip with Anna's foot on foot tour and it was amazing! It was a perfect way to learn about the best foods in Greece and take that knowledge on the rest of our trip. I happily and confidently ordered the custard bougatsa every chance I could after that. It was also a great introduction to Athens, learning our way around the city and a little bit about the history. We loved picking out spots to return to on our day in Athens before returning home. Anna was a great guide and we had a great group of people to explore with.

    We had a larger group so we had to divide into two groups of 10 but both hosts were very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. We went to 3 different places for food which was much more than I expected. All places were delishis and everyone was so nice.

    Turned up expecting 10 to 12 participants - ended up with a informative and lesuirely "private" food tour with my wife and Spyros as the guide. Spyros took as to areas that we would just not have stumbled across and provided great insight into Greek food and culture. Food tastings were varied and filling and my wife enjoyed her first ever coffee (Greek). Give breakfast a miss if you plan to do this tour.

    My mom, her friend, and I had the best time on the small walking wine tour. It was the first activity we did after arriving in Athens that morning. Even jet lagged we had a great time. The wines were delicious and the walk was very pleasant (even during a heatwave!). I particularly enjoyed our first stop where the sommelier gave detailed instructions on the process of wine tasting and what characteristics to look for and also history of the grapes. Our guide, Telis, was fun, personable, and provided suggestions for the rest of our stay. It was easy to tell he has a wealth of knowledge and was eager to share. If we had time, we would join their other activities.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it was a great chance to see areas of Athens we may not have visited, and the variety of food was perfect. Lucia was such a wonderful guide! Extremely knowledgable about the area and its history, as well as catering different dietary needs. Would highly recommend!

    Guide was super nice and friendly but we didn’t get the tour we thought we signed up for. We thought we were getting advice on local drink specialties, but the guide simply asked US where we wanted to go and what we wanted to drink. We didn’t realize until late in the tour that he was just showing us nice locations and leaving the drink/food selection up to us. On prior tours in other countries the guides had complete plans and arrangements at establishments for the food and drink emphasizing local specialties.

    It was my first food tour and I really liked it. I enjoyed many different foods from the country, ones I might not have eaten on my own. Natali, our guide was so much fun and gave us a great tour
