Know More about this tour

Start in Syntagma Square, the popular Athens meeting point, at 10am for your 4-hour private tour of Athens cuisine with a local food expert. With 15 generous tastings of authentic Greek food, taste Athens while getting a unique glimpse into daily life.

Begin with delicious crispy Greek pies prepared in a traditional bakery from the 1920s. Made with layers of crunchy phyllo dough and steaming leeks (or spinach, or cheese), this local treat tastes best fresh from the oven.

Over the course of the tour, taste handmade moussaka with smoky eggplant, stuffed tomatoes, mageiritsa (a traditional lamb soup), soutzoukakia (Greek Smyrna meatballs), and the dessert from the ancient Olympic Games. Visit the vibrant Athens Central Market, where fishmongers sling shiny octopus and butchers sell the freshest lamb near rows of ripe local fruit and piles of walnuts. This is the center of the market neighborhood, and the best place to see how Athenians shop.

Each dish tells a story, and your enthusiastic guide will teach you about Greek traditions and culture. The most delicious way to learn is through authentic eating, and you will experience a side of Athens few visitors get to see.
