What you can expect?

Starting from Syntagma Square, where the heart of Athens beats, you will enjoy a taste of Greece you won't soon forget. After meeting your experienced, food-loving guide, set off on an exploration that will introduce you to the local culinary scene. In this 4-hour experience, your food expert guide will share with you insights about the enduring history of Greek food and the local culture. Starting your day with a traditional stuffed phyllo pie from a family-run shop since the 20’s, you will be lead to hidden culinary gems inside the city that only locals know about. We will visit many different food and pastry shops, off-the-beaten-path taverns & traditional restaurants, but also explore the Athens Central Market, the center of Athens gastronomy life.

Traveling with an expert local means nothing will get past you. You'll learn why food is a special element of Greek culture; the different fresh and pure ingredients that the Greek land provides us with during all seasons; how different spices have different uses and what makes Greek cuisine so special. Featuring 15 delicious tastings like dolmadespastourmafeta cheese and Greek rice pudding, you'll get to escape the crowds and taste the best of what Athens has to offer.

Unlike many Athens food tours, you won't just be sampling mouthfuls. "Athens For Foodies" is a 4-hour Greek Gastronomy Tour where you will taste traditional Greek recipes such as stuffed tomatoes, moussakasoutzoukakia and what the winners of the ancient Olympic Games ate as dessert!

  • My wife and I booked a food tour with Greeking.me and it was the highlight of our trip to Athens! Highly engaging, we ate so much -real- food, learned a lot about the Greek cuisine and visited many local places we wouldn't have found on our own. A truly wonderful experience, absolutely recommended!

  • We went on this food tour on a first full day in Athens. It was a great way to orientate ourselves in the city and to try local delicacies that visitors would never find on their own. Our knowledgable guide Marina was friendly, fun and full of information about food and local history. Highly recommended.

  • Our guide, Elena, was fantastic! She gave us a brief history of Greek food, and took us to so many amazing places in the city that a tourist would never even know about. She was sensitive to our food allergies and preferences.We are a family with 3 kids in 3 different age groups and this was an activity that everyone enjoyed. One of the best tours we've ever done.

  • If you come to Athens, you MUST do this food tour! How do I even begin to describe how amazing experience this was....first and foremost, our guide, Elena, was the best tour guide we've ever had. Her VAST knowledge of the entire country, its gastronomy and history made the tour totally unforgettable. We ate the most delicious food!Elena went above and beyond to make us feel like local Greeks.

  • The Athens for Foodies tour was incredible! Our guide, Elena, was so sweet, gentle, with a great understanding of Greek culture and food! She took us to several amazing spots where we enjoyed great food and great conversations with the shop owners. I learned so much about the different historic aspects of the locations we visited and the greek food culture.

  • My wife & I have traveled to almost 40 countries and done countless food tours and our food tour with Elena and Greeking.me was the BEST! Elena was AMAZING! She was patient and knowledgeable and taught us so so much about Greek History and the local food culture! We seriously felt like we were locals in Athens! It's been weeks since we took our tour and we STILL talk about it!

  • The tour was really good with lots of information. The food was amazing. I liked the fact that every stop we had water and we didn’t feel rushed. The walk was at a nice rate with our group had old to young in it. The tour guide was helpful and very friendly.

    - Richard B
  • The gastronomy tour with Greeking Me was amazing! Elena introduced us to some of the most delicious food in Athens. Elena took us off the beaten path for food samplings. Instead of ordering your well known popular food dishes that you see at every restaurant corner targeting tourists,she introduced us to more traditional and mouth watering treats and was thoroughly knowledgeable about, also the history of Athens
