Athens Street Food Tour Overview

This is the best option for families with kids, groups of friends or colleagues. But, most of all, this tour is perfect for street food addicts. Everyone in the know already understands that the best food in any city isn’t found in the fine-dining establishments. It’s found on the streets! 

Hunt down the best street food in Athens on this 3-hour 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. For more options, consider our Athens night food tours and our taste of Athens walking food tour.

The Best Street Food in Athens!

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. This is Greek street food at its best!

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, enjoyed with a local, cold beer! And don’t fret, vegetarians, as we’ve got you covered with the nicest vegetarian kebabs you’ve ever tasted.

Food Tour Around Athens’ Shopping District & Food Market

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 street food 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 that is almost 100 years old! Satisfy your sweet tooth with the best Greek donuts and loukoumades topped with honey syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon.

The Food Tour Visits the Streets of Psyrri

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 daily bagel.
Finish your foodie day with a mouthful of scrumptious local desserts, topped with golden syrup, sweet spices and a special flavoured ice-cream.

Best Choice!

My husband and I participated in the afternoon street food tour and it was excellent! Being from Greece, Marina shared all of her knowledge on not only the food, but how different countries and cultures play a role in the food life here in Athens. She was a wonderful communicator, always smiling and wanting to answer whatever curious questions you have. No question was considered dumb! Thank you Marina. The food choices were delicious and the perfect fit for this tour. Thank you!!

A brilliant way to spend an evening. Marina was great and showed us the best spots for local food and a real Athens experience - even taking the time to run the tour when we were the only people booked in on a cold and quiet January evening. The food and drinks were fantastic and we discovered new parts of the city that we wouldn't have otherwise found. I'd recommend the tour for anyone looking to experience a bit of Greek culture with an informative and easy-going tour guide!

Perfect for the first night in Athens!

A perfect experience for the first night in Athens - even with our three kids! We are impressed by the vivid nightlife, the variety of urban districts we wandered around and the vast number of restaurants, bars, cafés, places to visit. Marina an her team welcomed us like friends in their city, we got an insight not only into the typical street food an its provenance, but also into the culture of Athens. We can highly recommend this tour

Come hungry

We were hungry but were fed more than just food! Marina took us on a culinary food tour and we loved all of it, including her explanations of the history of the dishes and of Athens itself. Yuuuuuuum!
