Description

Travel off the beaten track with a food tour that takes you to hidden cafes, speciality shops, and the market where locals go to buy meat and fish. Awaken your senses to the delicacies Athens has to offer as you feast on Greek cuisine like koulóuria, loukoumades, olive oil, and wine.

Meet your food-loving guide in Monastiraki Square to set off on your tour. As you stroll the tiled streets, listen as they share fascinating insights into the culinary history of the city and chat about the treats you get to sample today. Your first stop of the day is a centuries-old café serving a traditional Greek breakfast known as koulóuria. This sesame sweet bread is crunchy on the outside, but warm, fluffy, and soft on the inside.

Breathe in the wafting smells of butter, sugar, and dough as you step inside a tiny pastry shop. Here, sample a loukoumades, a doughnut-like treat covered in sweet syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon and walnuts. Continue on to the bustling Varvakios Agora market. Take in the salty smell of fresh seafood and the colourful sights of the vast array of produce before stopping to savour a steaming cup of authentic Greek coffee.

Your guide then leads you towards a secluded speciality shop where you have the chance to sample locally made wine, organic olive oil, and world-famous Greek yoghurt. Finish your tour with a walk down Evripidou Street, known for its spice shops that send out heady scents of cinnamon and clove before saying good bye to your guide. This food tour is voted best culinary experience in Europe.

Excellent tour. Highly recommended. My guide Anna was fabulous. Engaging friendly and knowledgeable. Took me places I would otherwise not have seen and tasted foods I don’t think I would have normally tried. Again highly recommended.

Best experience in Greece. I always wanted to do a food walking tour because food can show a lot about a country culture and did not disappoint. Miss Dolera was easy to talk to and was quick to answer all of my questions. I was the only person booked for this tour so I had a personalized experience. I was originally booked for a morning tour but was unable to find my guide and the company was really great about re-booking me same day. The food was delicious and I was full by the end of this tour. I cannot fully express how pleased I was with this tour. 10/10 would definitively recommend.
