Overview
Discover Athens' food without having to guess your way around its markets and menus on this half-day walking tour. Find and taste treasures such as organic olive oils and pastries easy to pass over if alone, and discover artisanal stores and eateries mostly only known to locals. Plus, as you talk and taste, hear background and snippets you could only get from a guide. A choice of departures provides flexibility.
What to Expect
Explore the food markets of Athens on a 4-hour walking tour and taste some of the delicious treats on offer. Visit local stores selling the "Green Treasures" of Greece, such as olive oil, wines, mushrooms, herbs and traditionally made pastas and salamis.

Start with a traditional Greek breakfast of koulóuria (sesame bread rings) in a century-old café, and then make your way to a tiny pastry shop to sample loukoumades (Greek donuts) and custard-filled filo squares.

Enjoy local pies and cheeses at authentic Greek bakeries and cheese stores.

Next, wander through the meat and fish market, the living monument markets of the city. Try some home-grown and roasted coffee, and visit specialty shops to purchase fresh fruit, olives, cheese, ham and other deli produce. Enjoy some local wine, organic produce olive oil and honey, seven years old aromatized vinegars and the world famous Greek yoghurt produced at family farms, at a small shop that sells awesome gifts for your friends back home.

Wander down Evripidou Street, scented by herbs. Try organic olive oils at a small shop that sells awesome gifts for your friends back home. Then end your culinary exploration at the deli stores of the historic city center where your guide will make you complimentary gifts to take back home.
