The knowledgeable guide took us on a walking tour of areas that were safe but though which I would have never ventured alone. We strolled through the giant food halls meat, fish, fruit. Our guide then took us to many small shops for sampling of various commonplace Greek food, including olive oil tasting. This tour was one of more interesting tours of my entire cruise/land experience. You do not have to be young to take part, just young at heart and able to walk well over uneven terrain of Athens city for a few hours. We also got a food/history lesson along the way.

Well worth it! The whole family enjoyed this tour. Went to local restaurants and shops representing a range of Greek food. Feel like we got the BEST representative taste of everything. Guide provided a nice mix of history and cultural background about the foods we were tasting. Full at the end!
