Are you a gourmand?

Your second food stop will be at a local tavern to practice the ritual of meze tasting in Greece; small side dishes of creative Greek cuisine made with love from a family that runs their restaurant for more than two decades. Meant to be shared with open hearts and meaningful conversations, this will be your introduction to the famous extrovert spirit of the Greeks. 

This culinary & cultural exploration would not be complete without wine; follow your foodie guide to a cosy, local wine bar and satisfy your thirst with a wine tasting of 5 different indigenous Greek varieties under the guidance of an experienced wine connoisseur.

  • Our tour was guided by the wonderful Penelope! She was Informative, educated, engaging, fun and passionate about Athens and all it’s rich history. Her food choices accentuated the most wholesome fresh (farm to table) traditional Greek dishes located in small local (not touristy) establishments. We experienced three/four different Greek dishes at each of the restaurants. Surprisingly to us, the dishes were filled with rich flavors and were delicious. If for not going on this tour, we would have never experienced true Greek food and seen the local nightlife.

  • My wife and I toured with guide Penelope and four other people on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Excellent tour — we stopped at three locations: a wine bar for tasting and light meze, a modern Greek restaurant for drinks and heavy meze, and a traditional restaurant for, essentially, a full meal. Penelope was very knowledgeable, friendly, and a super guide. All the food and drinks were interesting and tasty. I wasn't as much of a fan of the home cooking of the traditional restaurant as the other two, but it was charming and a good sampling of traditional dishes. Great value for the price.

  • This tour was the absolute highlight of my mum & my trip to Athens. It far exceeded any & all expectations. We had a lovely small group & the best guide in Athens. Eleni was so lovely, confident & really knows her information about food culture & Athens. She made sure everyone in the group was comfortable, had enough to eat & was happy. I can’t recommend Eleni & greeking me food tour highly enough. Next year, when we come back to Athens - I will be booking up again for sure! Big thank you, for such a wonderful shared experience.

  • One of the best food & wine tours I’ve been on. Great range of local foods to try from a range of restaurants. The guide was very informative and also provided some history of the neighborhoods we visited. The wine tour was phenomenal and also very informative, I fell in love with Greek Wines and even purchased a bottle!

  • My husband and I absolutely loved our food and wine tour with Penelope! It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and enjoyed the group atmosphere and socializing with new people. Penelope was super enthusiastic and informative and an absolute pleasure to be around. We learned a lot about the history of Athens cuisine and she was kind enough to email us all the recipes and additional tips and information on other questions we had about Athens. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city.

  • Fantastic night wandering the streets of Athens eating delicious Greek food. Penelope was a great guide providing lots of interesting info on the history and culture of Greece. She also gave great recommendations for the rest of everyone's trip - whether staying in Athens or going to the islands. All the of the restaurants, food and wine were fantastic. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

  • This was an amazing and unique experience for our family. Our guide Penelope was terrific, very knowledgeable about Greek cuisine, history, did not rush us. It was wonderful to see our two boys, who are usually picky eaters, become curious and engaged and enjoy the food they were eating. Strolling through the neighborhoods and eating in the little places the locals love - best 4 hours in Athens.
