  • I took the tour with 2 friends and we couldn't be happier! We tasted delicious street food in places we would have never discovered ourselves! The cocktail was a nice touch and very much needed. Will do it again if I ever come back tbh!

  • Our tour was first rate in every respect.it was tasty, well organized and thought out and Penelope, our guide was very knowledgeable. Not only did we learn about food, both old and modern, we learned about Athens and the history of Greece. The price was also reasonable and the walking not too strenuous.

  • The best experience we had in Athens! before the tour we thought 4 hours is too much but the time flyed and we didn't want the tour to end. Penelope was so nice and with a lot of patience. her knowledge is very wide and she gave us many explanations about greek culture and history. She has such a good vibe and she is a very special person. sha did a great effort to suit our expectations with out giving up on all the "must see places". Thank you for a wonderful memory to take with us. Shani, Tal, Keren and Gabi
