What you'll do

This gastronomic adventure starts with a delicious Greek coffee while you enjoy the early morning vibe of the city and the view to Acropolis as you take the first sip. Travel through time as you get to know the history of one of the oldest coffee shops in Athens and find out everything you need to know about the Greek coffee. This is as instagrammable as it gets, so keep your cameras handy!

A morning snack comes next, but this one is definitely a newcomer in the Greek gastronomy. It is the most beloved healthy snack for Greeks and it comes with a twist!

Together, we'll explore Greece's most exciting flavors through a workshop about olive oil, honey and Greek yogurt. We'll mingle with the locals as we visit the main food market, in the most vibrant part of the city. Here you will feel the real pulse of Athens, among food stalls, coffee shops, open-air markets and well-hidden tavernas.

We'll stroll around the Spice street with the best herbs from all over the Greek peninsula and taste the Olympic winners' favorite snack. Finally, we'll enjoy a meal in a Greek taverna that will remind you an old black&white film set back in the '60s! This is as authentic as it gets!

I am Pascal and travel is my passion! I am a Greek guy living in Athens and I've been traveling around the world, visiting more than 45 countries, exploring new cultures and meeting new people. As a traveler, I love to connect & also interchange experiences with other people visiting my country. Food is probably the best part about traveling, and also the best way to explore a new destination. Showing around the hidden food gems, the best-kept secret restaurants, and tasting the most famous street food is what I love doing the most. I want to make my guests feel at home while visiting Athens!

Great tour, Pascal was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I am gluten free and he made it known prior that I wouldn't be able to have certain foods but did try at each place to see if I could have anything. Would recommend to anyone coming to Athens to do this tour on their first day to get the tips and tricks. Thanks heaps again Pascal!

We enjoyed our eating experience to the fullest where we were introducted to numuous Greek specialities and delicious goodies. Pascal was an engaging guide, answering all our questions and at the same time giving us an introduction to Greek culture in highlights. We ended the tour with full stomachs, good restaurant tips and full of energy with high spirits and smiles on our faces.

Pascal es una persona muy interesante y amigable. Nos mostró sitios de Atenas que solo un local podría mostrarnos. Comimos delicioso y nos explicó detalladamente la historia de ciertos alimentos y lugares. Además de ser un experto, es una persona muy agradable y nos ayudó mucho con consejos para nuestro viaje. Pascal habla inglés y español perfectamente. 100% recomendable! Gracias!

Pascal was really accommodating even when I told him I couldn’t make the day that I had originally booked. Loved this experience so much and It felt like i was hanging round with a friend. So lovely to learn about all the local food, herbs, coffee, olives/oil, visiting the local markets and more. I’ve now become an olive oil snub. You need an empty stomach to be able to enjoy this experience, (do not turn up with a full tummy :-) Pascal was easy to talk to and really knows his stuff. I can’t wait to book a different experience when I return. Again pascal; Thank you so much! And see you soon. Mo
