Loved the tour with Georgia! She was so energetic and helpful even beyond the tour. Loved the spanakopita the most. Great food!

Everyone loves spanakopita! We should consider making it our food tours' slogan (is the marketing department. listening?). Georgia is indeed precious as are all our amazing and talented tour guides. We appreciate your lovely feedback, dear Jessica, and expect you back in Athens at the earliest opportunity!

We loved our tour with our guide Rena Koumparouli. She took us to many spots to taste the local food and gave us a lot of information regarding local and food customs and cuisine. The central market was interesting, we loved the liquour tasting, the local produce, the loukoumades, and of course the souvlaki! The pace of the tour was just right and we really felt the vibe of the Athens food scene. Recommend highly!!!

The reviews do not lie. A great way to explore modern Athens through food. Klea was an extraordinary guide. Knowledgeable funny snd friendly this tour was unrushed and personal despite including 13 people. Klea quick to give restaurant Reccomendations for Athens and even for our next stop I’m Thira. A nice but not overwhelming amount of food. You definitely can skip lunch! Highly recommend.

This tour was the best tour I have ever been on! Our guide Georgia was INCREDIBLE! Her enthusiasm and passion for Greek culture and food was unlike any I've ever experienced. The food and drinks we sampled were awesome and we hit all the places that you wouldn't otherwise go to on your own. She even took us to a really cool street with some amazing graffiti. You HAVE to go on this tour if you're looking for a one of a kind, immersive experience! I wish I could go on every tour in every country with Georgia!
