What you can expect

Get your appetite ready and join your private guide for the most delicious tastings of Athens. Try the best local bites in a 3 hour private food tour, created just for you, your family or group of friends.

Kick-off your food tour with a feast for all your senses at a typical Athenian in-and outdoor market. Stroll past the fish market that’s surrounded by the historic meat market. This is your chance to taste the best varieties of Greek olives. Check out the fruit & vegetable market across the street, and find the most colorful fruits you’ve ever seen! This market is a true sensory and gastronomic delight.

The next tasting is located inside a beautiful, spacious neo classical building with high ceilings and tables around the food counter. Choose from a mouthwatering selection of the best traditional meats and cheeses. Your private guide will tell you all about it's history, so feel free to ask any burning questions along the way.

Follow your nose and make your way to the most fragrant street in Athens. Walk into a true local spice store and hear why Athenians don’t mind traveling to the city centre to find that one unique spice. Nothing beats that special touch to a dish!

Next, you’ll pass the church of Agioi Theodoroi. Admire it’s unexpected beauty, right in the middle of a normal shopping area. Make your way to the next stop, a true oasis bistro in busy Athens. Sip on a traditional Greek coffee or enjoy a glass of naturally-flavored Mastiqua sparkling water. Enjoy the beautiful old Parisian style interior with an authentic Greek touch.

As you stroll the streets of Athens, do as the locals do and grab a typical Greek on-the-go snack called ‘Koulouri Thessalonikis’. As you finish munching on your treat, get ready for a typical Greek olive oil tasting. Find out why olive oil is fundamental to any Greek dish. Be sure to leave room for your next stop where you’ll bite into the best souvlaki in town!

We’ve saved the best for last, so get your sweet tooth ready as your host will take you for some delicious ‘Loukoumades’ Greek doughnuts. We’re sure you’ll want to come back for more.
