Getting to know Athens’ cuisine alone is difficult, unless you’re already familiar with the city and its gastronomy. With this private tour, a guide shows you around top food spots for an introduction to local gourmet delicacies. Visit Athens’ central market and sample cheese, wine and coffee—you’ll uncover the city’s culinary heritage with the benefit of a guide to yourself. The tour includes tastings and offers a choice of departures.
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and greet your guide in Monastiraki Square. Then, hit the buzzing streets to learn about some of the Greek capital's specialities.

Call at an old cafe to try koulouria, a sesame-sprinkled bread that’s popular at breakfast. Visit a pastry shop for a custard-filled filo delight and loukoumades—small honey-and-nut-drenched donuts—and then head for a bakery and cheese shop to sample a pie and local cheese.

Next is Athens' central meat and fish market, Varvakios Agora, to browse the colorful stands. Savor home-produced Greek coffee and visit hidden delis to try fruit, olives, ham, and other produce.

Stop at a souvenir shop and taste Greek yogurt, wine, aromatized vinegar, organic olive oil, and honey—perhaps buying some take-home gifts—and stroll Evripidou Street to relish the aromas of its herb and spice shops. After one last tasting, your tour finishes at the starting point.

Our food tour guide Irene (Irin) was excellent. She was passionate and friendly. We had an amazing experience sampling local cuisine from different cafes/bakeries and restaurants, and exploring the local markets. It was the highlight of our Athens trip. Would highly recommend them especially Irene.

So, I've done a lot of food tours because they are the best way to get the inside scoop (no pun intended) on where to find authentic local restaurants and taverns while learning about the history of the area. Athens Walks did not disappoint, and...More
