    Anna took us to food places that non-locals (and perhaps even some locals) wouldn’t know about without the intimate knowledge of a guide. From meat bougatsas to various cheeses to different mezes at the end, the experience allowed us to explore Greek gastronomic delights. Anna was a great host, and I highly recommend this tour.

    You get a fairly good amount of food on this. Be prepared to walk in the heat and be prepared to eat. Our food guide was fairly good. My group probably made it frustrating for them, the other people on the tour had very particular tastes, making the food guide's job a bit difficult.

    The tour with Anna was absolutely great. It was really nicely structured and of course very delicious :) Anna knows a lot about food and traditions of the area. So, it was very informative as well. I'll certainly return with my friends to repeat this experience, once this corona pandemic is over. One piece of advice to those, who plan to do this tour: do come hungry! :)))
