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.

Monasteries

I didn’t realize until I booked the trip that it was 5.5 hrs each way. I almost just said “heck with it” the day before and stayed in Athens, but I dragged my tired corpse out of bed and got on the train. So glad...

Great introduction to Meteora

Our guide Jim—Greek, but named after American-born grandfather—was fabulous. My docent partner was in awe of his ability to be witty and informative for four hours. His tour of the 7c church was absolutely splendid. Loved visiting the hermit caves, too. We were on our...

Excellent Service!

A fully equipped and experienced team of professionals. An amazing experience if you find yourself at Trikala or Kalampaka. Seek out George, The Great Driver and Eva, The Beautiful Guide and you won't regret it.

To be done once in a lifetime

The guide Katerina was very nice and friendly. The trip by train was very tiring though. Should definitely opt for a first class. But the tour itself was very enriching with breathtaking views.

Watch out for ticket details

I booked this tour through GET YOUR GUIDE which I thought included the rail tickets from Athens. The company doing the tour was Visit Meteora which having a similar advertisment to about two others says Full-Day Rail Tour to Meteora. This is misleading as it...

Amazing Meteora

I visited Meteora in Dec. 2018 and booked a Meteora train2train tour. Since it's not a touristic period, it turned out that there was only me in the train2train tour, but they still organized it even for only one person. There was a whole minivan...
