What people are saying about Central Greece

Zefi was a fantastic guide. She really made sure to customize our tour to our tastes. Portions were plentiful and we definitely left with fully bellies! Our group of four consisted of ages 13, 15, 42 and 67. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Highly recommend!

Our tour guide was AMAZING! Filos(?), he was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and kind. We all left so stuffed we could barely walk and got to see around the “commercial triangle” of Athens. Highly recommend for the most bang for your buck.

This was the highlight of our Athens trip! Great food and culture, and a fun way to see the city. There were many different foods to try, and the tour was well valued. Irene was an excellent guide. Highly recommend.

Antonia was very friendly and guided the tour wonderfully. We were able to try great Greek specialties and were able to taste a lot of everything. It was a lot of fun, anytime again.

Excellent trip, lots of wonderful food and drink with a really friendly and knowledgeable guide Eirini.
