Begin your 4-hour walking culinary tour with traditional sweets and finger food like the koulouri (a circular bread encrusted with sesame seeds) and the famous bougasta (a pastry consisting of either semolina custard, cheese or minced meat filling between layers of phyllo). Head to the Athens Agora and see the amazing range of spices, cheeses, olives, meat, fish and fruit on offer. Here, find a plethora of traditional tavernas. After your visit to the market, enjoy a brief break for a cup of traditional Greek coffee in one of the oldest coffee shops in Greece. Next, visit a folklore art shop and the beautiful Kotzia Square, situated just outside the ancient Archarnian Gate of Classical Athens.

Fantastic Experience

What I like about food tours is the ability to receive a great deal of historical insight while experiencing the culture through the foods sampled. This food tour delivers all of those elements. Our tour was purchased through this German Company who contracted a local Athens business to conduct the actual tour. Conducing the purchase of the food tour through the “Get Your Guide” website was a bit challenging from the U.S. due to built-in, anti-fraud website features which did not like the type of credit card that I was using (Mastercard). However, I called the website help number, a person in Germany immediately answered at 11 pm his time, explained to me what the issues were and successfully walked me through the purchase over the phone. Prior to the food tour, the company provides great e-mail communications, transmits purchase invoices, food tours vouchers and meet-up location instructions with a picture of the meeting site. Overall, this was a first-class, professional operation!
