guide tres agreable

Nous avons pu déguster des spécialités locales excellentes notre guide parlait français (à cocher quand on réserve) très sympathique, nous a donné des explications très claires, nous a parlé de la cuisine de grand mère, et nous a conseillé des boutiques où acheter de très bons produits grecs et des endroits typiques pour manger avec quelques explications sur les sites que l'on a traversé; un super moment sympatique

a nice way to know the neighborhoods of Athens and find out about places to go for dinner/drinks. Our guide was really knowledgable and gave us lots of insights on where to go

Tour guid Dimitris is amazing - funny, smart, easy going. Really enjoyed his company. But the food tasting was poor and low quality. Instead of 10 tasting that was mentioned in booking, we had 3 - orange pie with coffee, pita with meat and some sweet staff like donates. Total cost of food was less than around 15 euro with tour cost 90. Waste of time and money. Not recommend at all.
