My first food tasting tour ever and a great experience. Anabelle the guide is very very nice. You get the chanxe to visit parts of Athens off the beaten path and the food is excellent. I was too full to eat the gyros at our last stop, so I took it away as a next meal. The food tasting included best known Greek food (olives, feta, gyros etc.) but also other dishes. Highly recommended.

I could not recommend this tour enough. Our guide, Anabelia, was exceptional and the tour takes you to places off the beaten path.

Excellent food tour. Dorela was a great guide, funny and very detailed. I fully recommend this tour.

Lovely goat and fab food more than enough to eat and saw parts of Athens I did not know existed

Great tour - nice guide. Definitely a recommendation
