Full description
Start the day with a traditional Greek coffee after meeting with a local food guide in the square of Firostefani village (next to Fira). Be prepared to have your breath taken away by the unbelievable views. The tour starts with a walk towards the famous blue domed church of Santorini (the perfect spot for photos) followed by a sampling of local mezes in a traditional tavern.

Walk on towards Fira on a footpath right on the edge of the caldera which gives more stunning sea and volcano views. Then a glass of cold local beer will be the perfect welcome to the capital of Santorini. Follow your guide through the historical alleyways and hidden paths of Fira with several stops for samplings of local treats, including an olive oil tasting and a quick bite of souvlaki - the ultimate greek street food.

Visit the daily market with fresh fish and vegetables before you try some organic honey. Then enjoy a midday meal in a tavern with views of the caldera. Loukoumades, the Greek doughnuts, will put the sweetest stop to this fun filled tour. This tour gives an introduction to Greek cuisine in a fun and informative manner from the local standpoint, showcasing not only the flavors and ingredients of Mediterranean cuisine, but also the beauty of Santorini as a world-famous destination. Local people, from the tavern owners to local farmers, souvlaki griller to honey producers, are all a part of this tour. They will be happy to share their hospitality and knowledge with you.

This was a wonderful way to explore Santorini and Aris was an amazing guide throughout the tour! He was excellent at introducing us to a variety of local foods and was able to make substitutions as needed as I do not eat meet. Overall would recommend this for anyone interested in exploring Fira and trying out lots of delicious foods! Be sure to come hungry.

This is a terrific way to enjoy Santorini for 4 hrs. Ari (Aristotle) is your host and he is just so wonderful, friendly and will share with you his outstanding knowledge and experience of Greek food, drink, culture and history as well as the geography of Santorini. Your walk is gentle stopping at various stops to try delicacies. We loved the different olive oils, zucchini fritters, sun dried tomatoes, capers and a chickpea paste on pitta, after sampling a traditional Bougatsa creme and spinach and fetta, many more including sweets and fine wine and beer from the region. With a tour of 8 people it is really intimate as you get to know other people from across the world! Highly recommended!

Santorini Food Tour is the best in class!

Aris - our excellent tour host - has struck gold with this idea! What's not to like about walking around beautiful Thira, sampling some of the finest examples of Santorini cuisine and sipping some alcoholic beverages in the middle between. The tour was great fun or even hilarious and I also gained some interesting info about the island, its history & culture. Don't miss this tour if you visit Santorini, it's worth every penny!
