What to Expect
Greece is a pleasure for the senses, and one of the best reasons to visit is its incredible food.

On this 3-hour food-themed walking tour, you will get a chance to taste a variety of traditional goods, served by the locals who make them daily with their own hands.

Any real foodie will tell you that your first stop on any travel is the local market. Here you can get a sense of what is to come, from the variety of meats, fishes, cheeses, and produce available daily to the locals. At the vibrant Varvekeois food market, you will see local vendors loudly bartering over their daily wares.

On either side of the market are wonderful specialty food shops as well, inviting you in with their colorful and provocative spice piles. Here you can sample delectable nuts from the region, as well as figs, olives, and dates.
