Description

Try Greek specialties from the most tasty neighborhoods in Athens!

This tour has been mentioned in numerous international sources and allows you to discover Athenians favorite activity: eating!

Your guide will first take you for a morning wakeup at one of the most iconic cafes in the city. Next, try koulouri, which Greeks enjoy nibbling on. Head to a delicatessen shop where you can try different olive oils, honeys, and tapenades.

The culinary adventure continues in a bakery that is known for its baklava. Try authentic souvlaki from a popular grill before heading towards to true “stomach of Athens”, the Varvakeois markets. Here fish, meat and vegetables are sold in a lively atmosphere.

Next continue down a street dedicated to spices, where you will visit a shop that offers up all sorts of incredible smells from local herbs, condiments, and aromatics. Try a bougatsa from a local grocery store.

Finish the tour in a small tavern that specializes in traditional Greek cuisine, where you can taste a selection of Greek mezze and four traditional appetizers.

Leave happy and with a full stomach!

  • Merci tout d'abord de m'avoir permis en direct de rejoindre un groupe en anglais puisque le groupe en français avait été annulé faute de participants. Notre guide était excellente, très sympathique et souriante, répondant à toutes nos questions. Cela m'a permis de goûter plein de bonnes choses et même d'aimer le café grec... dont j'avais un très mauvais souvenir. J'espère utiliser ce même type de balade dans d'autres villes.

  • Interressant, instructif et savoureux! Elisabeth, notre guide, parle très bien français et donne des explications claires et détaillées sur les différents plats grecs et la culture grecques en général, le tout avec le sourire!!! Une façon assez originale de faire un tour dans Athènes!
