Totally worth it! You get to taste a lot of iconic greek foods and the history behind them. The guide was super entertaining and knowledgable and knew exactly which sites to show us in a timely and memorable manner. Very funny and chill experience, and it felt great to share it with other people as we walked around the beautiful neighborhoods in the heart of the city. My favourite tastes were the greek coffee, galaktoboureko and the small samples accompanied with bread and olive oil at the end of the tour.

The tour was amazing. Our guide Pavlina was kind, considerate and extremely knowledgeable about not only the local food but also the history of Athens. It’s an enjoyable memory to munch on the delicious food/drink while learning a lot of this elegant city. Highly recommend.

The food tour with Anna was amazing! She provided historical background on food and areas we were at. of not for her tour, we would not have visited some of these hidden gems where locals go. She was friendly, informative and personable. I would recommend booking with her

Wonderful Guide, wonderful moment. Thank you very much. And above, all done also in French. Which made it easier for our young children. You will especially visit a little shop dedicated to olive Oil and other wonderful local products.

A great experience with many stations where there were delicious things to try. The quality was excellent and there was always exciting information about the preparation, the history and the origin of the ingredients.
