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!
