    We spent a wonderful morning with Zefie our hostess who made us discover tasty places. Everything was so authentic and delicious. What delicacy within reach of the mouth!! Zéfie is adapted to our culinary tastes to bring us the maximum pleasure. Sweet, salty everything was a treat. Thank you for this moment of sharing and conviviality. Annie Marine Didier

    We had a really great tour with Konstantinos. He showed us many hidden possibilities to eat very well and, above all, traditionally. What was a great added value for us: He always brought us closer to the history of the food. We also received a lot of information about the preparation. The greatest thing, however, was that he gave us a great insight into Greek life. Please don't miss this tour if you are in Athens. It is best to do this tour at the beginning of your stay. Efcharisto Konstantinos! Stay the way you are.

    Anna took us to food places that non-locals (and perhaps even some locals) wouldn’t know about without the intimate knowledge of a guide. From meat bougatsas to various cheeses to different mezes at the end, the experience allowed us to explore Greek gastronomic delights. Anna was a great host, and I highly recommend this tour.
