My husband and I visited Athens this spring and we had a food tour with Fotis. He is a wonderful tour guide! The food tour was our favorite activity in Athens because Fotis offered us a rich variety of different Greek dishes. From appetizers, to greek main dishes to desserts. You will leave very full and with rich knowledge on the food and culture of Greece. 100% recommend!

Fantastic Experience!

We had a wonderful time on our evening food tour with our guides Marina and Antonia. We learned so much about the food and culture of Athens, and we felt like we got a real feel for this amazing city. Both ladies shared fun personal stories and made us feel so comfortable in their town. And, of course, the food was delicious! This tour is highly recommended!

We had a great food tour with Fotis last night. He is remarkably knowledgeable and passionate about Greek cuisine. We were immersed in olive oil, souvlaki types, a large variety of traditional dishes, and topped it off with delicious desserts. Throw in a couple shots of special Greek liqueurs and you have a well-rounded, complete food experience. It was a great way to start our trip and we highly recommend this.

Make sure you’re hungry

This is a must. We do a lot of tours when we travel and this is one of the best we’ve ever been on. Fotis was our charming and knowledgeable tour guide and we just adored him. Great welcoming personality and took amazing care of us. We were stuffed when we were done. Loved that this not only involved food but the different neighborhoods that make up this amazing city. Learned a lot of history and met some great people. Make sure you do this!

Great Value and Experience

Marina’s tour was very informative and interesting. We ate so much food - many things I would not have ever thought to order, and many things that are typical to home style cooking. The tour lasted 4 hours and we ate until we were stuffed. Marina is very warm and engaging and makes everyone feel included. I highly recommend her.

Perfect Evening in Athens

Englisch: We had a beautiful evening food tour with Marina and Fourty. It was our first food tour on a vacation. The group consisted of another 8 people. Due to the different nationalities we have agreed to speak English. Everyone in the group was very nice. Marina and Fourty really went to great lengths to ensure that everyone feels comfortable, understands everything and that the Greek traditions are conveyed. The atmosphere in Athens in the evening is phenomenal. Not comparable to that on the day. That was really great. We felt really good. We were in various small shops and pubs, were able to try a lot of delicious traditional dishes and dishes and were super full in the end. Of course, the Corona rules were also observed. Despite this, the evening was really nice and gave our vacation a little something extra. We were so excited that we will certainly book a food tour more often on vacation. Thank you very much for this beautiful evening! Deutsch: Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Evening Foodtour mit Marina und Fourty. Es war unsere erste Foodtour in einem Urlaub. Die Gruppe bestand aus weiteren 8 Personen. Aufgrund der verschiedenen Nationalitäten haben wir uns darauf geeinigt englisch zu sprechen. Alle in der Gruppe waren sehr nett. Marina und Fourty haben sich wirklich sehr sehr viel Mühe gegeben, dass sich jeder wohl fühlt, alles versteht und die griechischen Traditionen übermittelt bekommt. Die Stimmung in Athen am Abend ist phänomenal. Nicht vergleichbar mit der am Tag. Das war wirklich klasse. Wir haben uns total wohl gefühlt. Wir waren in verschiedenen kleinen Läden und Lokalen, haben sehr viele leckere Traditionelle Gerichte und Speisen probieren dürfen und waren am Ende super satt. Auf die Corona Regeln wurde natürlich auch geachtet. Trotz dieser war der Abend aber total schön und hat unserem Urlaub ein gewisses Extra verpasst. Wir waren so begeistert, dass wir sicherlich noch öfter im Urlaub eine Foodtour buchen werden. Vielen vielen lieben Dank für diesen schönen Abend!
