What you'll do

Let us introduce you to delicious, traditional Greek food in non tourists areas and hidden spots in Athens. The type of food and places you most probably would not find on your own. We will visit local streets and fish, meat, fruit and spice markets full of colour, scents and noise and eat fruits and olives from the farm and fresh fish and lamb with tasty lemon flavoured potatoes and Greek salad right inside the market. Try 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 many traditional foods that you will not even have heard of before, along with some more familiar ones like a delicious gyros! You will feel like you know many people in Athens at the end of this experience! *Markets are shut on Sundays and on tours starting at 4pm or later, so we will visit a hidden taverna with pretty garden, and eat traditional fresh food with ouzo and barrel wine. Message us for child discounts. Other languages often available so please ask.
