What better way to explore Athens than eating your way through it? With an in-the-know foodie guide, you’ll enjoy 15 (!) tastings of the Greek cuisine as you walk through the non-touristy neighborhoods of Athens, to meet vendors and learn about traditional Greek recipes. From crunchy phyllo pies to cold cuts, and from stuffed tomatoes to loukoumades, your taste buds will be tingling the entire time. Big tip: come hungry.

  • More than 15 different Greek products and authentic recipes
  • Discover the Athens Central Market

  • Chow down on the best of Greek cuisine

What you can expect?

Starting from Syntagma Square, where the heart of Athens beats, you will begin an unforgettable journey through Greece’s flavors. After meeting your food-loving guide, set off on a city exploration that will introduce you to the local culinary scene. In this 4-hour experience, your guide will share with you an insight into the enduring history of Greek food and culture. Starting your day with a traditional phyllo pie from a family-run shop, you will be lead to hidden culinary gems inside the city that only locals know about. You will visit many different food and pastry shops, off-the-beaten-path taverns & traditional restaurants, while you will also explore the Athens Central Market, the center of Athens’ gastronomy life.

Traveling with an expert local means nothing will get past you. You’ll learn why food is a special element of Greek culture; the variety of fresh and organic ingredients that the Greek land provides us with during each season; how different spices have different uses and what makes Greek cuisine so special. Featuring 15 delicious tastings like dolmades, pastourma, feta cheese, and the famous Kalamata olives, you’ll get to escape the crowds and taste the best of what Athens has to offer.

Unlike many Athens food tours, you won’t just be sampling mouthfuls. “Athens For Foodies” is a 4-hour Greek gastronomy tour, where you will taste traditional Greek recipes -always fresh and seasonal- followed by the favorite treat of the ancient Olympic Games winners!

We warn you not to eat breakfast & guarantee you there will be no room for lunch!
