All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The tour did not only include food tastings but also a little background of Athens and its buildings as we walked through the streets. The tastings were delicious and informative. Our tour guide Anna was passionate about her subject and Athens. As it was my birthday as well Anna organised a “birthday cake” for us to celebrate and let me feel special.

Our guide was so friendly and took us to so many amazing places so we could experience authentic Greek cuisine. The tour group was also a great way to meet other travelers- great for solo travelers or pairs/small groups. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone staying in Athens- and do it on your first day so you’ll know what to order at restaurants if you’re new to Greece!

Our guide Eirini was fantastic. It's a great way to see that part of the city and understand some of Greek food and food cultures from a local. Also included a lesson on Greek wine! We had lots to eat and drink so don't eat before coming.

Wonderful experience with an excellent sommelier! Beautiful restaurant. Had dinner after outside looking at the Acropolis. Definitely recommend!

Excellent tour and food. Very knowledgeable guide. Recommend starting your trip here first.
