Despina was our tour guide and she was amazing! She loves what she does and has passion for food, tourism, and Greece. The food was amazing. We had Loukoumades, a honey and nut covered doughnut, which was amazing. We also got a gyro, feta cheese and thyme infused honey, morning sesame bread, Spanakopita and Bougasta which are sweet and savory pies. Despina also showed us an amazing local tavern to eat where we sampled some amazing cooked beans and some house wine. She showed us an Orthodox Church, explained the Greek flag, told us about the trees around town, and showed us the fish and meat market and the fruits and vegetable market. The tour was amazing and worth the time and money!

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.
