The absolute must-do for Athens first-timers and travelling foodies!
Join us on a delightful semi-private food tour (max. 8 ppl) around the Central Market of Athens to celebrate together our local food culture and savour delicious Greek delicacies.
Follow your food expert to our favourite local bakery. Dig into the crunchy phyllo of a scrumptious spanakopita or a tiropita with feta cheese, and watch the “dough show” of how traditional bougatsa is made – just like pizza tossing, but five times the size and ten times as thin. Wow! Your foodie adventure just started!
A perfect Greek breakfast always starts with coffee. Visit the oldest coffee roaster of Athens and engage in their daily coffee ritual of making Greek coffee on hot sand – a 500-year-old technique first used in the desert!
Skip the tourist traps to find your way to a Greek deli. Meet the warm-hearted family behind it, who treats our guests as friends. They welcome us with a glass of Greek wine or spirits, before we travel around Greece with exquisite feta, graviera, olives and cold-cuts, – this is your chance to taste a “bizarre” Greek specialty, the camel “prosciutto”.
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 the original Greek yogurt – which makes it undoubtedly the highlight of our culinary walk. Yum!
What’s up next? “The Wall of Greek Honey”. Along with wine and olive oil, honey has been feeding Greeks since ancient times. Visit a local store to immerse yourself into the sweet world of Greek nectar, taste thyme honey from the Greek islands, forest honey from Mount Athos, and… did you know there’s even bitter honey?
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 a full meal at a local eatery, the most popular hangout for the people of the market. Taste various dishes-meze style, cooked by talented women who honour traditional Greek cuisine.
Sweet memories last forever. On our last stop, we take you to a renowned pastry shop, in the hip neighbourhood of Psyrri. Famous for finger-licking baklava and decadent Greek desserts, like a unique flavoured ice-cream, made from a local product found exclusively in Greece. We might even have the chance, to get a glimpse of how baklava is made on spot and learn its secrets. How can it get better than that?
