    This was definitely worth it. Ed did the food tour with Rena. She was friendly, animated, knew a lot about food and area culture, and obviously enjoyed her job. We tasted food at 5-6 places. Each one different and each one was REALLY good. The amount of food was almost too much. Loved everything about it and highly recommend it.

    We did our food tour on the 26th of March. Our group was small and the people were very nice. We visited different markets and got the chance to taste many delicious Greek dishes. The highlight of our tour was our passionate and professional tour guide Giorgia; she explained in great detail the Greek food culture, even including the etymology of words, showing us the real Athens. Thank you for the great experience!

    We enjoyed this tour thoroughly. Georgia was so pleasant and helped us with so much information about the food and local cuisines. All the tastings were good and for a first day in the city it was a perfect way to start. Thank you Georgia

    This was a fantastic tour in spite of a rainy day in Athens. We ate street food, sampled different foods in small shops, ate pastry in a friendly café, and topped it all off with a huge gyro in a cozy restaurant. At the start of our tour there was a difference in the pick up time at the end and the time stated in our voucher but it was worked out with our tour guide and our taxi driver and at the end of the tour our driver was exactly where he promised to be to pick us up.

    Great tour! My only advice would be do NOT eat breakfast! You will get TONS of food throughout the tour and then end with a Gyro lunch... so come hungry!
