Duration: 07:30 (Approx.)

Taste as you Walk!

A scenic and easy paced walking tour through some of the most delicious and historic neighborhoods of Athens as your guide provides you with expert insight on the culinary heritage of the Greeks but also of the cuisine we have all come to know as Mediterranean.

An “off the beaten track” tour

Seize the opportunity to taste a wide variety of Greek food ranging from the mouth-watering sweet and syrupy “loukoumades” to traditional “bougatsa” or souvlaki with pita bread or Feta cheese and the famous Greek Kalamon olives and many more! Enjoy this unique tour, in the non-touristy area of Athens and acquaint yourself with Greek cuisine in the company of your food specialist guide.

Discover culinary Athens

Discover another side of Athens which lies in the shadow of the famous Acropolis where a kaleidoscope of colors, smells, tastes and textures await. Your expert and totally passionate about food guide will lead you past produce stalls bursting with color, intoxicating spice shops, enticing sweet shops, bakeries and of course the bustling central food market of Athens.

Food and Beverages sampling

We will visit various specialty food shops, colourful and alluring delicatessens, aromatic sweet shops, restaurants, dairies, spice, grocery and pie shops where you will sample and taste the most traditional Greek food and not necessarily the Greek food stereotypes such as " Greek salad “or moussaka". A genuine Athenian food tour would not be complete without a visit to the vibrant central Varvakeios food market, with its bustling energy and loud bargaining; this dazzling galaxy of fruit and spice, meat and fish will enchant you. At all places visited you will have the chance to taste a variety of traditional greek products.
Join us as we embark on a culinary journey and a delightful world of the five senses and culinary Athens will be revealed to you.
