After meeting your experienced, food-loving guide, set off on your exploration that will introduce you to the local culinary scene. In this 4-hour experience your foodie expert guide will share with you insights about the enduring history of Greek food and the local culture.

Starting your day with a traditional stuffed phyllo pie from a family-run place since the 20’s, you will be lead to hidden culinary gems inside the city that only locals know about. We will visit many different food and pastry shops, off the beaten path taverns & traditional restaurants and also explore Athens Central Market, the center of Athens commercial life.

Traveling with an expert local means nothing will get past you. You'll learn why food is a special element of Greek culture; the different fresh and pure ingredients that the Greek land provides us during all seasons; how different spices have different uses and what makes Greek cuisine so special. Featuring 15 delicious tastings like dolmades, pastourma, feta cheese and Greek rice pudding, you'll get to escape the crowds and taste the best of what Athens has to offer.

Unlike many Athens food tours, you won't just be sampling mouthfuls. "Athens food tour" is a 4-hour Greek Gastronomy Tour where you will taste traditional Greek recipes such as stuffed tomatoes, , moussaka, mageiritsa (what a strange name for a traditional Greek recipe!), soutzoukakia (Greek Smyrna meatballs), the dessert of the winners of the ancient Olympic Games and more.
