Immerse yourself in the world of Greek food and sample unique local delicacies, from small-batch olive oils and baklava to souvlaki and bougatsa! The smells and the range of products in specialty food shops and the bustle of open-air markets will all make your taste buds sing. This award winning food tour lets you discover a different side of the city by joining the Greeks in what is probably their favorite activity: eating!
Your English-speaking guide will meet you and take you for that essential eye-opener, Greek coffee, at one of the landmark coffee houses of the city. You’ll get an explanation of the role of food in Greek life, and of the eating habits of Athenians in particular. Next, it’s a treat from the street, as you sample a koulouri, one of the all-time classic snacks on the go, before you duck into a carefully selected specialty food store that prides itself on its wide selection of Greek products. Here, you’ll be able to taste different olive oils, oils, spreads and other surprises, but remember to pace yourself – there are seven more food stops to follow!
Taste sweets and savories at the baklava bakery, authentic souvlaki and fried potatoes at a popular grill spot and visit the bustling Varvakios Market, the biggest and most popular fish, meat and vegetable market in the whole of Athens. Continue to Spice Street and drop in at a shop with an incredible variety of local condiments and herbs such as Greek oregano and KrokosKozanis, otherwise known as Greek Red Saffron and much more. The last leg of the tour leads you to scrumptious Greek meze where you can try classic appetizers, variety of cheese and cured meats.
