    Georgia gave us a very informative and delicious tour of Athens. She was delightful and the food sampling was generous. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It was perfect!

    I need not elaborate as I see Georgia has the highest of high reviews and deservedly so. Although I do not speak Greek, she speaks English very fluently and was kind enough to assure I understood. She spent a lot of time on this tour, more than expected and knows the many shop owners we visited. Her delight with the city is highly contagious! As mentioned, the great reviews of her tour speak for themselves. Of course I would recommend this tour but only if Georgia is the leader.

    Thank you.

    A great way to spend a few hours in Central Athens. Georgia is a wonderful host, with a tremendous local knowledge and love for her city. We visited meat and spice shops, purveyors of fine olive oils and other quirky shops selling products from kitchen wares to coffee. The tour is never rushed. Theres lots of time to relax, move about the central neighbourhoods and learn about this beautiful city from a very
    charming and informative guide. Highly recommended.

    Excellent tour! Georgia was warm and personal giving us a fascinating story of the history of Greek cuisine. Any tour of Athens is not complete without it. Highly recommend it.

    If you want to immerse yourself into the Greek food and culture, this tour is a must! My tour guide Georgia met me in the heart of Athens popular flea market where locals go to purchase produce, spices, goods and textiles. This tour not only encompassed Greek food and history but art of Athens. I got the chance to taste popular bread and shop were the locals shop for spices and drink coffee with a view of the Acropolis outside the restaurant window. The tour was the totally package and totally worth it during my visit to Athens.

    On the whole, really happy with this tour. Georgia was friendly and insightful, the couple of restaurants she recommended in Athens served wholesome and real tasteful food, like you are you are feeding your body good fuel, if you know what I mean. Along the tour itself, we tried To Koyaoypi from the original store, a lovely Sary cold meat platter from Karamanlidika Τα Καραμανλίδικα-was already on my to-try list and possibly the best Greek coffee in pot in Athens-whilst covering a little Greek politics and life. The only thing I would have liked more is a bit more time and explanation in the fruits and veg. and meat markets, and maybe a map to mark the places we visitors. She also introduced me to Mastic chewing gum, Elma-thumbs up. Thank you Georgia! Elizabeth and Gary, UK.

    Georgia was a delightful guide! It was as if a friend of a friend was showing us around Athens and by the end of the three hours we were now friends as well. She knew everyone and everything about the food scene n Athens and we were introduced to many new delicacies during the tour. As good as our samples were, I enjoyed equally the tour of the meat and the fish markets. After numerous ruins, churches and museums that were terrific, this is a wonderful change of pace.

    We enjoyed this tour so much! We learned and experienced so much in 3 hours. Georgia is very knowledgeable and was able to make great recommendations to places not only in Athens, but also Santorini!
