My girlfriend and I absolutely loved our experience. We got to see original streets and shops, and really enjoyed the salty and sweet treats. The best part was our guide, Aliki. She was cheerful and helpful. Note that you should book this tour when getting to Athens since you earn some rewards at the end of the activity (ie. museums and shops discounts). Thank you so much, we had a great time !

Such a pleasant experience! While exploring a vibrant neighborhood in Athens you learn a bit about the history that you would otherwise clearly overlook - and the experience does not only enrich your knowledge but you are also going to taste some local specialties. The hunt is nicely put together and the masterminds behind the tour turned out to be outmost charming guides at that. So we felt quite lucky throughout the tour and look back at what we perceived to be a very unique experience. Highly recommended! Practical recommendation upfront: In case of vegetarian preferences let them know. But be warned: You are then going to miss something REALLY special:)
