Perhaps the best food tour I have been on. Irena, Our guide, was an absolute gem. There were 8 or so stops along the way in food places I would never see or visit as a tourist. Food choices were excellent, reflecting the true culture of the country. Advise to those who come on a cruise: Tour organizers can arrange for transportation to and from the port. Highly highly recommended.

This was the highlight of our Athens trip! Great food and culture, and a fun way to see the city. There were many different foods to try, and the tour was well valued. Irene was an excellent guide. Highly recommend.

Excellent trip, lots of wonderful food and drink with a really friendly and knowledgeable guide Eirini.

Delicious and interesting, we really enjoyed this way of tasting so many Greek foods in a short time!
