Full description
Start the day with a traditional Greek coffee after meeting with a local food guide in the square of Firostefani village (next to Fira). Be prepared to have your breath taken away by the unbelievable views. The tour starts with a walk towards the famous blue domed church of Santorini (the perfect spot for photos) followed by a sampling of local mezes in a traditional tavern. Walk on towards Fira on a footpath right on the edge of the caldera which gives more stunning sea and volcano views. Then a glass of cold local beer will be the perfect welcome to the capital of Santorini. Follow your guide through the historical alleyways and hidden paths of Fira with several stops for samplings of local treats, including an olive oil tasting and a quick bite of souvlaki - the ultimate greek street food. Visit the daily market with fresh fish and vegetables before you try some organic honey. Then enjoy a midday meal in a tavern with views of the caldera. Loukoumades, the Greek doughnuts, will put the sweetest stop to this fun filled tour. This tour gives an introduction to Greek cuisine in a fun and informative manner from the local standpoint, showcasing not only the flavors and ingredients of Mediterranean cuisine, but also the beauty of Santorini as a world-famous destination. Local people, from the tavern owners to local farmers, souvlaki griller to honey producers, are all a part of this tour. They will be happy to share their hospitality and knowledge with you.

This was the most enjoyable thing we did on our whole trip! Aris was incredible, not only with his knowledge of local foods and drinks but also his ability to make everyone feel relaxed and that you've known him for years. He's Greek born but grew up in Australia so speaks perfect English which means that you get the best of both worlds. He not only acted as our food guide but he also helped guide us for the rest of the holiday, telling us where was best to go and provided his number so we could ask any questions we had throughout our stay. He went above and beyond for everything including helping me with my holiday tradition of getting a football shirt from every country we visit to remember our stay by (Aris of course!) and even brought an ultra's shirt to our hotel for me! This is a must do tour on anyone's trip to Santorini, if you miss this then you miss out on the real Santorini!

This was a wonderful way to explore Santorini and Aris was an amazing guide throughout the tour! He was excellent at introducing us to a variety of local foods and was able to make substitutions as needed as I do not eat meet. Overall would recommend this for anyone interested in exploring Fira and trying out lots of delicious foods! Be sure to come hungry.

This is a terrific way to enjoy Santorini for 4 hrs. Ari (Aristotle) is your host and he is just so wonderful, friendly and will share with you his outstanding knowledge and experience of Greek food, drink, culture and history as well as the geography of Santorini. Your walk is gentle stopping at various stops to try delicacies. We loved the different olive oils, zucchini fritters, sun dried tomatoes, capers and a chickpea paste on pitta, after sampling a traditional Bougatsa creme and spinach and fetta, many more including sweets and fine wine and beer from the region. With a tour of 8 people it is really intimate as you get to know other people from across the world! Highly recommended!
