very pleasant guide

We were able to taste excellent local specialties our guide spoke French (to be checked when booking) very friendly, gave us very clear explanations, told us about grandmother's cuisine, and advised us on shops where to buy very good Greek products and typical places to eat with some explanations of the sites we crossed; a great nice moment

a nice way to know the neighborhoods of Athens and find out about places to go for dinner/drinks. Our guide was really knowledgable and gave us lots of insights on where to go

Tour guid Dimitris is amazing - funny, smart, easy going. Really enjoyed his company. But the food tasting was poor and low quality. Instead of 10 tasting that was mentioned in booking, we had 3 - orange pie with coffee, pita with meat and some sweet staff like donates. Total cost of food was less than around 15 euro with tour cost 90. Waste of time and money. Not recommend at all.
