From traditional Greek coffee to local meze, decadent desserts and an abundance of local spirits, this food tour has everything you could possibly dream of and then some!
You will meet your expert local guide at a designated meeting point in Firostefani. From there, you will be lead in a picturesque pebbled path through the traditional towns of Firostefani and Fira. The walk will take you by the famous blue-domed church of Santorini, on a caldera view footpath, which offers unobstructed views of the volcano; arguably, one of the most majestic views the island can offer. Through the old part of Fira town, you will pass by the Catholic church and stroll through the shopping area of the town.
During the tour, you will have the opportunity to taste the finest offerings of Santorini. Revel in traditional Greek street food, such as the world-famous ‘souvlaki’, sample local beers, wine and raki, savour Cycladic cheeses and cold cuts, try local olive oil, and spoil yourself rotten by indulging in naughty delicacies and traditional sweets from a local bakery, such as ‘bougatsa’- the Greek ‘phyllo’ pastry with custard filling, accompanied by traditional Greek coffee.
The tastings will also include customary Greek dishes, including appetizers like ‘fava beans’, ‘tzatziki’, ‘tomato fritters’ and Greek salad, main courses like ‘moussaka’, and desserts like ‘loukoumades’, all depending on availability and seasonality.

We've always enjoyed food tours as a great way to experience a new place. History and culture are reflected in the foods we grow, create and enjoy. Spending time with Aristotelis provided us with the chance to better understand the island and its people. We tasted wonderful foods, wine, beer, olive oils, deserts, and more. We visited places that we likely would not have found and enjoyed great conversation along the way. Aristotelis has a passion for the island that he clearly enjoys sharing! A must-do on Santorini!
