    The food tour was great. We just parked the car and walked to the local eateries and had fabulous local Greek food. We tasted so many interesting dishes. Our tour guide was very nice and accommodating. He even picked us up at our hotel so we didn't need to meet him at a specific location.

    I loved the friendliness of the host Dmitri . The greek coffee visit was fantastic and walk through diferent areas be it the sweet shop /markets visit to the local eating house etc was very nice, however at the end of the tour i was left wanting more in terms of quality for the money paid .but again the guide Dmitry was wonderful person.

    Ariadni was on time at the assigned location, knew the area well and brought us to sample wonderful tastes of Athenian food. She walked at our slow pace, and apologized that it was Sunday and the market was closed

    While this tour af Athens was very good, the Vatican tour we booked thru them was nothing short of a nightmare. We were supposed to meet at 2:30, and go on a 3hour tour with 12 people. They didn’t bring us to the meeting spot until 3:30, and our guide didn’t meet us until 4. She rushed us thru, list half our group, and left us at 5. I asked for a refund, and they won’t even consider it. Stay away from this company.

    Dimitri, our guide was really great. friendly, professional and a lot of fun. He knows the city really well, and shared with us Athens history, tips and stories. we loved our food tour. We even contacted him later during our time in Athens for recommendations and he answered us every time. thank you so much.

    My friend, mom and I selected this tour and was very happy that we have. We chose a time of day that turned out to be the best to navigate. We had a traditional breakfast pastry followed by absolutely amazing coffee done in a traditional style. We visited the meat/fish market, produce section and enjoyed a sampling of fresh strawberries. We then saw a spice seller and ended up having light appetizers and wine at a small shop. The conversation was great and we ended with traditional Greek donuts. This is the best way to see how locals eat and live. I recommend this to anyone!

    Irini was our wonderful guide who not only showed us some of the best food in Athens, but also explained the history of the town and had fun anecdotes along the way! She took us through the meat market and by spice shops so we could see where all the food was bought by the locals before we tasted the end product. The food was great and Irini was very friendly and knowledgeable I highly recommend this tour on your trip!
