Traditional Greek Food Tasting and Culinary Walking Tour in Athens
From US$59.45

To cover maximum culinary ground in minimum time, a food tour is essential. Led by a local guide, this Athens food tour covers all the Greek bases—including no fewer than 10 tastings and a classic “souvlaki” sampler. Traveling on foot in a small group, savor delicacies from honey to olive oil, from pastries to cheese, and discover Greek culture as you do.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and small group in central Athens and stroll through the residential area like a local. Discover the foods Athenians love on a visit to no fewer than 10 curated stores. Taste local cheese, honey, olive oil, coffee, and more, and learn about the herbs and spices that underpin Greek cooking.

Stroll through the bustling lanes and byways of the busy Central Market. Visit bakeries and pastry shops, and sample the legendary baklava as you hear about Greek culture from your guide. After trying traditional "souvlaki" kebabs, your tour finishes in central Athens, where your guide can direct you to the metro. Thanks to all those tastings, lunch is not required.
