The tour took us to cafes and restaurants that we would never have found on our own and try food we could not have ordered on our own. We came away feeling like we had experienced a little bit of authentic Athens. We toured on Saturday morning and several of the stops were crowded with locals simply going about their regular routine. Our guide Laura was patient and terrific as she got us from spot to spot and seated and served. At each of the stops we were a little in the way but Athenians were very gracious as we listened to Laura provide history, culture and fun along the way. We did this as a family and feel the tastes,sights and sounds from the tour will be long remembered. Marcia, USA.

Elizabeth Bargue was an amazing guide. She had a wealth of knowledge about Greek food, customs and history. We stopped eight places, each was an introduction to real Greek culinary culture. I loved the authentic venues and the relationship between Elizabeth and the vendors. elizabeth was a considerate guide, she always made sure everyone could hear her and each person was included BarbGag, Canada.

This was, for sure, the best tour I've made during my backpacking in Greece and in Athens. For food and culture lovers, this is a must when you visit Athens. During 3 hours, you walk around the city, try and understand the story of a lot of Greek food, but also has a brief cultural baggage during the city walk. Our tour guide, Ilias, was very helpful, provided lots of interesting facts, curiosities and even taught us how to read the future from the cup of coffee! It was, for sure, a flawless and amazing tour. Guarulhos, Brasil.

Food tours are such a great way to experience a new city and Andreas did an amazing job showing our group around. The stops seem very local and not touristy, and the food and coffee was delicious! We loved hearing the history of Athens and Andreas was great with all of our questions. Definitely recommend! Jennifer.

The tour was incredible: we walked through 6 neighborhoods seeing all the hidden spots that not even locals knew (i show some pictures from the tour to a friend of mine who is from Athens and she asked me where was it!) the history old and modern, the small legends and the places were they take you are really a must do! It’s a really recommendable tour in your first day in the city! Cecilia, Italy.
