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

An “off the beaten track” tour

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 by produce stalls bursting with color, intoxicating spice shops, enticing sweet shops, and of course the bustling central food market of Athens.

We will visit various specialty food shops, colorful and alluring delicatessens, restaurants, 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

Our guides will knowledgeably lead you through a food stroll and introduce you to small, hidden specialty food shops. They will provide valuable insight both on the unique and intricate culinary heritage of Greece as well as the famous Mediterranean diet, hailed today as a model of healthy living.

Join us as we embark on a culinary journey and a delightful world of the five senses and the culinary Athens will be revealed to you.
