    The tour with Anna was absolutely great. It was really nicely structured and of course very delicious :) Anna knows a lot about food and traditions of the area. So, it was very informative as well. I'll certainly return with my friends to repeat this experience, once this corona pandemic is over. One piece of advice to those, who plan to do this tour: do come hungry! :)))

    Do not eat beforehand! We spent an amazing (but hot) afternoon with Anna guiding us through central Athens visiting local vendors. Key point: broad range of delicious food - all from from specialist regions or authentic manufacturing processes! There's time to sit and enjoy some tapas dishes at the end to feel like a local.

    we did our tour in March with a German speaking Giude. It was very nice, we tried many different specialties. From typical breakfast dishes such as yogurt with honey and nuts and loukoumades to locally made feta from the barrel, various meat specialties, Greek coffee and more. Our guide always tried to answer all questions and respond to individual requests. Overall it was a nice afternoon.
