Further down the road, we stroll the streets of bohemian Psyrri, dazzled by its mesmerising lights and lively atmosphere. Your local food expert takes you to on of Athens’ hidden food gem: a no-frills mom-and-pop restaurant to savour authentic, comfort Greek cuisine, served with a local  drink in a cosy environment. This is authentic Greek cuisine like you won’t find in the guide books.

Marina, the tour guide, is everything a guide should be: kind, patient, and passionate about what she does. We not only tried street foods of Athens, but also had a full meal at a family run taverna. There were a total of five stops and by dessert, I could only manage two bites as I was so full. I would highly recommend the Athens Evening Food Tour- worth every penny! You not only experience amazing food, but you also get a guided walk through the streets of Athens!
