Tour Description

Welcome to Athens!
We are Rachel and Michalis and we want to show you why we love our city so much!
We will introduce you to delicous, traditional Greek food in non tourists areas and hidden tavernas in Athens. The type of food and places you most probably would not find on your own!

We will visit fish, meat, fruit and spice markets full of colour, scents and noise and eat fruits and olives direct from the farm and fresh fish or lamb with delicous lemon flavoured potatoes and Greek salad right inside the market.

Try a Greek coffee made the traditional way (see it being made) in a 100 year old coffee shop. Visit a cheese and deli shop and dare to try something with a twist - its a surprise!

15 large sized tastings offered as you learn about Greek culture directly from people who live it daily.

Discover Athens as we eat along the way and enjoy meze, bougatsa, olives, fava, fresh fruits, fish, lamb, potatoes, breads, coffee, souvlaki, halva, cured meat, cheeses, feta and salad with ouzo and wine.
You will feel like you know many people in Athens at the end of this tour!

*Markets are shut on Sundays and on tours starting at 3pm or later, so we will visit the ancient area of Plaka and eat Greek yoghurt, honey, walnuts, fresh fruits, dolma, Greek salad, Gigantes, traditional village sausage, Gyros and Bougatsa with ouzo and barrel wine at four places including a hidden taverna with a pretty garden.
