Tour Details

The Most Delicious Food Tour of Athens

Get ready to bite into a sweet, cream filled, crunchy filo layered pie called bougatsa, fork into perfectly fried doughnut balls drenched in honey called loukoumades, and savor a satisfying meld of flavors from warm pita bread filled with seasoned grilled meat, fresh veggies and traditional sauce called gyros in the Athens Food Tour. In between, you’ll taste Feta cheese, Greek olives, and sip Greek wines. This neighborhood walk revolves around sampling Greece’s traditional food.

Athens Central Market and More

Our Athens Walking Tours guide will lead you through the bustling Athens Central Market, a historic food market unlike any other in Europe. Here, colorful and fragrant food stalls set the stage among animated food sellers, fishmongers and butchers whelping for sales as locals bargain them down.

Experience the Tastes of Greece

You’ll also walk the city’s quaint spice street, browse through mom-and-pop specialty shops selling local wine, olive oil, cheese or olives, and sample what’s behind the glass counters at family-run delicatessens. The aromas of fresh, out-of-the-oven savory pies, the tempting displays of Greek pastries and sips of Greece’s strong and tasteful spirits round out the food tour.

Discover Athenian Food Culture

In between each bite, you’ll gain insight into Greece’s fascinating food culture, the evolution of the country’s cuisine and the healthy nature of locally produced, organic ingredients.

Morning Hike

We enjoyed the hike which brings us to the trails behind the Monaestry. Ivan was very patient with the group as we are a little slow as some portion of the hike is challenging to 1-2 members of the group.

Trip to METEORA to see monasteries.

It was well worth the trip to see in the monasteries in Meteora. We took the train from Athens (5 hour trip one way and the train was absolutely filthy! Would not use this transportation again!). The guide met us there and drove us to...

Great experience!!!

This tour (7 people) helped us understand the history of the monastic settlement in a very short period of time. We were in the area for only an overnight. With this tour, we were taken to each of the active monasteries to see them from...

A good way to see the landscape

I enjoyed the sunset trip. Lasting around 4 hours. We were taken to several locations. Some being out of the way. The guide was very knowledgeable. Took us to some interesting sites along with some of the Monasteries. The transport was in a posh coach(small).

Excellent tour

Our group of 4 60-year olds did both the morning hike and the afternoon sunset tour. Both were excellent but if you have to choose, I would recommend the hike. Not only were the views from the trail beautiful, it just felt like a more...

Thoroughly enjoyable morning trip

We stayed in Kalasraki and were collected promptly from our hotel. The trip was well planned allowing just the right time for a visit to three of the monasteries. Eva, our guide, was very informative, pleasant and friendly and was able to answer all questions....
