Numbers are limited to 14 people on this small-group walking tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your guide.
Embark on a culinary journey of taste, color, smell and texture, right below the striking Acropolis in the heart of Athens’ historic city center. This food tour offers an array of colorful and enticing treats. Visit delicatessens, aromatic bakeries and sweet shops, restaurants, dairies, spice merchants, grocery stores and pie shops where you will sample traditional Greek food, including the ever-popular koulouri, a circular bread with sesame seeds.

Your licensed guide will lead you on a food stroll and introduce you to small, hidden specialty food shops. Listen to commentary about the unique and intricate culinary heritage of Greece, as well as the famous Mediterranean diet, hailed today as a model of healthy living.

A genuine Athenian food tour would not be complete without a visit to the vibrant and central Varvakeios food market. Its bustling energy and colorful world of fruit and spice stalls and meat and fish vendors truly make for a cultural experience.

We loved this tour. Met our guide Artemis and then proceeded to the first stop. This store that she took us to had all Greek items. We were taken to the back of the store where they were set up for us. We tasted olive oil, vinegar, and some other items. From there off to the doughnut place, where we sampled hot, fresh Greek type doughnuts. They were delicious I might add. From there to the markets fruit, vegetables and fish. Next to the cooking school where we sampled more food. This type was cooked in a large pot and heated from a unique burner. By the time this tour was over we were stuffed. Great way to learn about Greek traditional food, plus some foods that really are not Greek. I highly recommend this tour!
