Full description

Skip breakfast and join your guide with an empty stomach as you set out on a foodie adventure in the food market district of Athens. Benefit from a small group size and enjoy a personalized, flexible, and safe experience.

The first stop on your food tasting tour is a local bakery. Sample delicious spanakopita and learn how traditional Bougatsa is made. Watch Greek coffee being made on hot sand, a ritual dating back to the Middle Ages.

Sample authentic Greek yogurt and eat it like locals do, topped with a dollop of sweet jam. Learn about feta cheese, olives, and Greek olive oil and try some special and surprising local delicacies.

 

Break for lunch and eat like an Athenian as you enjoy a selection of Greek tapas. After lunch, head to the Athens food market to discover the selection of food on offer here. No trip to the food market is complete without a visit the spice street.

A food tour not to miss! One of the BEST ones I've ever done - a great introduction to Greek cuisine and the city. I tried a variety of traditional tastes, all of them of very good quality. Our group was small and our guide was fun and very knowledgeable. Such a great day! I would highly recommend.

Absolutely amazing. The food was quite enjoyable. I was so full by the end of the tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and made the tour fun by adding in little games we could play to increase our knowledge. I highly recommend this tour!!!
