Overview

The best choice for you to experience the Greek food culture – and do it your way! 

Join us on a private food tour around Athens’ food market and spend 4 hours savouring authentic Greek cuisine. Easy and stress-free, exclusively for you and your loved ones. 

Check out our Athens food tour itinerary and feel free to tailor it to your wants and needs: 

Follow your food expert to our favourite local bakery. Kick off your day with scrumptious spinach and feta cheese pie, and watch how the Greek custard cream pie is made – like pizza tossed in the air! Wow, what a better way to start your Greek food adventure! 

Dig into traditional Greek breakfast with a cup of Greek coffee or freddo. Visit the oldest coffee roaster of Athens and engage in their daily coffee ritual of making Greek coffee on hot sand! 

Skip the tourist traps to find your way to a Greek specialty shop. Support a family-owned business that always welcomes our guests as friends, with a glass of Greek wine or spirits. Taste exquisite feta cheese, graviera, kaseri, Kalamata olives with Greek salami and prosciutto made from a “bizarre” Greek treat, you could never guess. 

No Greek food tour can claim to be authentic, if it does not include a taste of Greek yogurt. Do you think you know the real deal? Maybe not… Most of our guests haven’t tried authentic Greek yogurt – which makes it undoubtedly the highlight of our food walk in Athens. Yum! 

What’s up next? “The Wall of Greek Honey”. Along with wine and olive oil, honey has been essential to the Greek diet since ancient times. Visit a Greek products shop to immerse yourself into the sweet world of our local nectar. Taste the immense variety of Greek honey, among others, thyme honey from Crete and forest honey from the Peloponnese.

Just when you think you’ve had enough, remember…  more than 20 tastings are included in our food tour. The warm-up is over. Enjoy traditional cooking at a Greek restaurant, in form of various meze style dishes, to enjoy local gastronomy bite by bite.

Time to create the sweetest memories with your family. Visit a famous Greek desserts shop, in the bohemian neighbourhood of Psyrri. Satisfy your cravings for crunchy fillo baklava, served with mastiha ice-cream and a local drink called mastiha liquer. If we are lucky, we’ll get a glimpse of how Greek baklava is made right on spot. How can it get better than that?

Great and tasty food toor in Athens!

Great tour of Athens with a focus on food tasting as well as learning about the food origins and customs, how other cultures influenced the food, and a bit about the greeks and how the approach food and drink. It was actually our first visit to Athens (but not Greece) so it was a great way to get to know the city a bit. Marina was a great guide, both knowledgeable and friendly. We got to eat lots of interesting foods in some of the smaller and out-of-the way establishments that we never would have found on our own. Highly recommended!
