Overview
Taste your way through Athens on a small group tour. Let your guide lead you through the twisting streets of the city to 10 carefully selected specialty food shops, and sample the finest olive oil, cheese, cured meats, sweets, spices, tapas and Greek souvlaki. All tastings are included. Discover the flavors of Athens, one bite at a time.
Highlights
  • Visit at least 10 specialty food stores in Athens and taste their wares
  • Sample Greek favorites, including honey, olive oil, cheese, and coffee
  • Taste traditional “souvlaki” (kebabs) and "baklava" (nut pastries)
  • Discover off-the-path neighborhoods and local markets in a small group
What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group in central Athens and stroll through the residential area like a local. Discover the foods Athenians love on a visit to no fewer than 10 curated stores. Taste local cheese, honey, olive oil, coffee, and more, and learn about the herbs and spices that underpin Greek cooking.
Stroll through the bustling lanes and byways of the busy Central Market. Visit bakeries and pastry shops, and sample the legendary baklava as you hear about Greek culture from your guide. After trying traditional "souvlaki" kebabs, your tour finishes in central Athens, where your guide can direct you to the metro. Thanks to all those tastings, lunch is not required.

Our guide Antigoni was a joy, the food was plentiful, the walk introduced me to new areas of Athens, and my fellow travellers were full of interesting and intelligent conversation. I had a blast. Fully recommend.

Yes! A lot of non-meat options. Only the souvlaki had meat and a couple of dishes at the taverna. But there was so much food, plenty of options without meat.
