Overview

Best option for families with kids, groups of friends or colleagues, but most of all, street food addicts. 

Hunt down Greek street food classics on this 3h. small-group street food tour (max.10ppl) around the tastiest food haunts of Athens.

As a European street food mecca, Athens never disappoints. From sweet to savoury, early in the morning or late at night, the city offers endless options to taste Greek flavours on-the-go.

Start your food tasting tour at a pie shop that honours a culinary tradition dating back centuries. Traditional Greek tiropita (creamy cheese pie) and spanakopita (spinach-feta filo pie) are made every day right on spot with much love and the freshest ingredients. 

No Greek food tour in Athens is complete without tasting the original souvlaki or gyro at a local street food joint. Chunks of pork or chicken wrapped in warm pita bread, juicy tomatoes and a dollop of tzatziki sauce made with Greek yogurt, this is a local treat made in heaven! – Vegetarians, we’ve got you covered.

Time to take a break. Move your feet around the shopping district of Ermou str. and marvel at the magnificent wonders of the city, till you find your way to the next Greek specialty. It’s called peinirli – a delightful boat shaped pizza baked with a cheesy, buttery filling and traditional cold cuts or vegetables on top.

Walk around the central Athens food market to discover an old pastry shop growing up to be 100 years old. Satisfy your sweet tooth with the best Greek donuts, or else loukoumades, topped with honey syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon.

Meander the streets of colourful Psyrri, an old Athenian neighbourhood full of artistic and creative power. Enjoy the most beautiful street art in Athens, along with vintage shops, Greek designers stores and cute cafes.

Enter Psyrri’s most famed bakery to grab your koulouri. This is our traditional sesame bread ring found on street vendors in Athens, but here it’s the source of koulouri, baked fresh and warm, almost 24/7. Watch the locals pass by for their daily breakfast or quick snack, just like New Yorkers enjoy their bagel.

No Greek food tour in Athens is complete without a mouthful of scrumptious baklava, topped with golden syrup and sweet spices. Take a bite of its numerous crunchy filo layers, while your food expert shares an easy baklava recipe to make back home.
