Wonderful time, few too many sweets.

Our guide Maria was awesome and took us through some very cool places. I myself though there were a few too many sweet items for tasting. The food was all incredible though. The tour didn't end where it began so some people had issues with finding their way out, but Maria had a map and made it quite simple. There was a big focus on traditional foods but it would have been nice to go places that the new generation typically go as well.

Quite good, an excellent hostess with intimate knowledge of Athens

We had quite a nice time. This is a good way to spend a couple hours wandering the city in a directed but carefree way. Our hostess provided interesting historical information on Athens and Greek food in general, and was a delight to converse with. Overall, very enjoyable, and don't worry, you get your money's worth in food.

Great food. Great guide. Great Tour.

Our guide, Melina, gave us a wonderful tour of different tastes of Greek food. At one of the stops, Food of the Mediterranean Diet, we bought 2 bottles of the best vinegar, that I ever tasted( including 150 year old Balsamic). It was sour cherry, ginger, cardamom and black pepper. The souvlaki at our last was spectacular. All of the incredible reviews of this tour, are for a reason.
