Walk along the historic streets of Athens while indulging in traditional Greek cuisine. This tour allows you to savor a wide variety of local delicacies, ranging from the mouthwatering, syrupy 'loukoumades' to traditional 'bougatsa,' 'pastourma,' rusks and olives. You’ll also discover Greek herbs and spices at the Varvakeios food market. 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.

My boyfriend and I had a great time on this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgable. She provided us with a bit of historical context to the food culture in Greece. We enjoyed visiting a part of the city we might not have ventured to on our own. We would recommend this tour to anyone planning to visit Athens. It's a great way to remember that despite the awesome history, Athens is a bustling city with plenty to do outside of the typical areas.

We booked this tour in October when we visited Athens after a Med cruise and we were not disappointed at all!! Vicki was our guide and she is extremely knowledgeable of the Greek culture and food which was exactly what we were looking for. The food was all incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip!!
