Highlight of my Mediterranean trip! So much fun poking around the local markets, bakeries, spice shops and learning about the Greek way of life off the beaten tourista track. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and super pleasant. Picked up some amazing local ingredients to bring home including some amazing saffron and Greek Mountain Oregano and sampled so much food and drink! Only thing I would recommend it opting for them to pick you up instead of meeting the group - I missed that option when booking and had one heck of a time getting from the port to the meeting place on time!

We were in Europe for about 10 days, and this food tour was easily one of the highlights. Dorina was incredibly knowledgeable, spoke English very well, and provided fantastic insight to the history and culture of Athens. The food was great, the drinks were great, and length of the tour was great. We even brought home some of the things she had us try!
