I like to book food tours when I go on city trips. I was lucky enough to take the tour all by myself. November is certainly a bit quiet in Athens. The two great girls from Athens Food on Tour made time for me and did the whole tour. I had already eaten myself at the first stop. It was great and the food was delicious. I absolutely recommend it to everyone. 5 ⭐️

I had a great time on my food tour! It was fantastic to taste authentic Greek dishes and receive so much detailed background info on them. I got to discover the centre of Athens and was introduced to so many great eateries that I will definitely try to find by myself again! Thanks for the extra recommendations on where to eat and Hotspots of the evening life! Highly recommended if you really want to dive into the Athenian culture!
