An excellent tour with Vicky. Her knowledge is second to none and the importance of Greek cuisine in society became very obvious. The selection of places we were taken and the wide variety of foods we tried were amazing and I thoroughly reccommend this tour if you have any interest in seeing an authentic side of Athens. There's history and politics involved as you learn how food is central to Greek culture and you'll see places that you might not otherwise visit as a tourist, but which certainly warrant a reurn trip at lesiure to sample their products more widely.
Please note, you WON'T need breakfast and you may want a snooze by the time you've finished! A perfect Saturday morning...

The tours gives a different perspective to the history of Greece through the cuisine, traditions, changes, influences of different important events. Despina is very knowledgable and makes sure every traveller is treated with care. Food tasted has been delicious.
