Full description
Prepare yourself for a mouthwatering journey to discover the secrets of world-renowned Greek cuisine. This 4-hour experience will take you through picturesque neighbourhoods and local food shops offering secret culinary treasures. During the tour, your food-loving guide will share stories about Greek gastronomy and local culture. You’ll taste 15 different types of Greek culinary excellence, including a traditional filo pie from a family-run place that has existed since the 1920s, the dessert that was given to the winners of the ancient Olympic Games and Greece’s most famous street food! You’ll also discover the answer to the great debate: Turkish or Greek coffee? Unlike many Athens food tours, you won't just be sampling mouthfuls. This is a 4-hour Greek gastronomy tour where you will enjoy traditional Greek recipes such as stuffed tomatoes, moussaka, soutzoukakia, the dessert of choice for the winners of the ancient Olympic Games and more.

    Few walking tours on earth offer this many stops, unique tastes, and insider stories as this one. Do NOT eat breakfast before this tour! You’ll be treated to everything from local treats and pies to handmade liquors and generous cheese and meat plates. Olives? Yes, please! Honey tasting? Yes! Local cookies and baked goods! Keep the incredible food coming! In our opinion, this is the finest foodie walking tour in Athens, in no small part due to Penelope’s smart guide services and her good standing with each place we visited. Highly recommended.

    Beyond excellent!

    This was the BEST food tour I've ever been on! Our guide, Penelope, was amazing! We had so much fun exploring Athens and eating different foods while Penelope was explaining their history and origins. It was the perfect introduction to the city and the small-group tour was a much more intimate experience. We felt we saw the real local life, away from the touristy places. If you can only choose one tour to book in Athens, then choose this one! And definitely skip breakfast as you are going to be FULL afterwards!
