Enjoy meat (or vegetables) wrapped in pita bread, juicy tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce at a local joint away from the crowds. Walk around Athens’ shopping district and find your way to a delightful boat-shaped Greek pizza place.

A great tour. Fotis was quite fun and knowledgeable and took very good care of us. The food was very tasty and we had a lot of food. I highly recommend the tour for anyone who wants to get a taste of the local food and the city gems! You should come hungry though

Antonia was absolutely lovely and awesome! We are incredibly thankful for her attentiveness, knowledge and being so engaged with the entire tour group. She was like a mother to us, and was extremely accommodating to other families in our group who had children and food allergies my girlfriend has. Antonia later emailed us after our request for local restaurant recommendations and they were perfect! We went to dinner at I Kriti and the food was so tasty! Antonia even went out of her way to give me information about neighborhoods as well that I was able to give to my brother who is moving to Athens at the end of January. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to try a large variety of traditional Greek staples and engage with Athens, its history and its amazing culture. Greekality was amazing to us :)

Amazing. All the food was delicious. Of all the food tours I’ve done this own is my favorite. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the food and she also knew so much of Greek history in relation to the food. Beautiful tour. I expected nothing less from Greek culture.
