About
Getting to know Athens’ cuisine alone is difficult, unless you’re already familiar with the city and its gastronomy. With this private tour, a guide shows you around top food spots for an introduction to local gourmet delicacies. Visit Athens’ central market and sample cheese, wine and coffee—you’ll uncover the city’s culinary heritage with the benefit of a guide to yourself. The tour includes tastings and offers a choice of departures.

  • Visit the central market, and try cheese, coffee, wines, honey, and more
  • Private tour with a guide focused on you alone
What to expect
Book your preferred departure time and greet your guide in Monastiraki Square. Then, hit the buzzing streets to learn about some of the Greek capital's specialities. Call at an old cafe to try koulouria, a sesame-sprinkled bread that’s popular at breakfast. Visit a pastry shop for a custard-filled filo delight and loukoumades—small honey-and-nut-drenched donuts—and then head for a bakery and cheese shop to sample a pie and local cheese. Next is Athens' central meat and fish market, Varvakios Agora, to browse the colorful stands. Savor home-produced Greek coffee and visit hidden delis to try fruit, olives, ham, and other produce. Stop at a souvenir shop and taste Greek yogurt, wine, aromatized vinegar, organic olive oil, and honey—perhaps buying some take-home gifts—and stroll Evripidou Street to relish the aromas of its herb and spice shops. After one last tasting, your tour finishes at the starting point.

Panos our guide was excellent having a great knowledge and passion for local food and drink. We enjoyed the small group of ranging nationalities and age range.
A good variety of local food and drink establishments were visited during our 4 hour tour which represented good value for money with introduction to a diverse Greek cuisine.
Highly recommend this tour and suggest booking it at the start of your vacation as the navigation around the city was also very helpful. Yamas!!

Our Private Gourmet Walking Food Tour was well worth the cost, but the highlight of the tour was the remarkable guide, Anna. It was clear that along our food route she knew everyone and her knowledge of the Monsatariki and Plaka neighborhoods was a plus to the food we tasted. We started with doughnut and ended with a lovely bit of vinegar, olive oil and wine tasting at an elegant sit-down experience. Everything we tasted was delicious and Anna was an absolute, high energy delight.

Ειρήνη (Irene), the tour guide made the experience very enjoyable. We (my 13-year old daughter and I) booked the tour only after a little fatherly arm-twisting. However, when asked later about what she had enjoyed most in Athens, my daughter straight away said this tour had been her favorite part. It was for me too - funny, delicious and educational. Who could ask for more? You get to know a lot about a culture by experiencing their cuisine and drinking culture, and I felt that this tour rounded out our experiences, providing context and a kind of mental mortar that sort of brought everything together that we'd learn and heard visiting the other famous sites in the capital and country. I recommend it for everyone, even those with teens (and especially if you can be sure to book with Irene, who made such an effort and was so successful at including my daughter in the conversation and overall experience). Thank you for a wonderful time! Your friends from Abu Dhabi. :)

This tour exceeded expectations, thanks to Anabelia's amazing care! She walked our group of eight all around different eateries in Athens. Wear comfortable shoes and come with an empty stomach! I also recommend being open to trying the different food and drinks, even if it's unfamiliar to you. There were so many great, classic dishes and Anabelia's knowledge of the neighborhood, culture, and cuisine was outstanding! We learned so much on this tour and it was 100% worth the price and worth going!

Anabelia was an amazing guide. She made our small group of strangers feel comfortable with each other right from the start. My husband and I arrived into Athens two hours prior to the start of the tour and were ready for lunch. By the end of the tour, we were still full and didn’t need to eat dinner. Every dish we tried was delicious. My husband and I revisited a couple of restaurants Ana introduced us to before leaving Athens. This was a wonderful introduction into Greek food and culture.

Anna was a knowledgeable and personable guide. She gave us the background of both the places we visited and the foods that we ate. She took us to restaurants off-the-beaten path that serve excellent food representing the Greek cuisine. We tried foods and beverages we never would have tried on our own.

Anna allowed us to set the pace as she shared various aspects of Greek life. Her love of Athens came through with everything she said.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Anna and highly recommend her and this tour!

The walking food tour was the highlight of our time in Athens! Our guide Anna was fantastic!! She explained so many things about the food and different areas of Athens. We got to visit the meat, fish, produce and spice markets and took us to 7 different food stops where we got to taste so many different and tasty foods including gyros, spanakopita, Greek salad, olives, cheese, butter beans, olive oils, vinegars, donuts, authentic coffee, and many more! Come hungry to this tour and do not plan on eating dinner afterwards. Our tour started at 2 pm and ended at 6:30 pm and we walked about 3 miles. It was a fantastic way to spend the day. We walked through the Plaka afterwards and then returned to our hotel happy and full. The tour is very reasonable when you see all of the delicious food and various places you visit. Most all places have restrooms- I drank a lot of water (which was provided at each stop) as it was a warm day and had to go twice. Anna knew everyone we passed at the restaurants and tours. She even ran back to get my backpack when I accidentally left it behind! Anna loves her job and it shows! We were a group of 8 and enjoyed meeting the other guests. It was a fantastic end to our time in Greece and you will love this tour!

Anabelia was an amazing guide. She was knowledgeable on not only the restaurants but on the dishes themselves. She also knew the locals very well which added to richness of our experience of how locals interact.

My only regret was that I had this tour late in my visit to Athens. I recommend booking this trip first and early on in your visit so that you can get first hand experience of how locals live and eat.

And be prepared for a feast.

Such an amazing way to experience all the delicious food and drink Athens has to offer! The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and made the day so enjoyable. I left with a great appreciation for traditional Greek food, drink and culture.

I recommend going at the start of your trip so you can experience everything for the first time with the guide, learn the history behind each thing and get some tips on great places to visit for the rest of your stay.

This was an excellent way to sample some local food and drink that we wouldn’t have tried and also to explore parts of the city we wouldn’t otherwise have seen. Varied and interesting, partly because the food helps explain some of Athens’ cultural heritage. Ana was an outstanding guide!
