Reviews

  • Marialena was a phenomenal tour guide and knew just where to position us for the perfect picture or to keep us in the shade. The food and drinks part is simply to die for and can be reviewed in an entire article on its own as we sampled many different sweet and savoury dishes and local drinks. Highly recommended and such a refreshing experience from start to finish.

  • We were in the port of Piraeus on a cruise and greeking me arranged our pick up. We were so blessed to have a guide who majored in archeology and was very knowledgeable. The food tour was interesting as well. I especially loved the market and seeing all the fish/meat for sale. They then had a driver ready to take us back to the ship. The communication by email was great and the whole tour ran seamlessly and on time.

  • We travelled to Athens for a family Spring Break trip and couldn't be happier with our experience booking this tour. Our group of 5 included our two children (ages 3 and 5) and the guide did a great job keeping them interested and engaged throughout. The food tour stops were excellent, the history and mythology lessons were interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was great and we highly recommend it.

  • Our tour guide was Vera. She is so knowledgeable and really patience with our boys, 8 and 9. We started off with the Acropolis tour which she really made it so interesting for them, especially all the stories of the Gods. I highly recommend booking the private if you have younger children like us. Then, we started our food tour which again Vera made extremely interesting and we loved the selection of foods from the traditional breads, the meat and fish markets, our lunch finished with delicious pastries.

  • Our guide, Eva, was the perfect person to show my family around Athens. She was smart, kind, and extremely knowledgable about the history and mythology. Combining the acropolis and a small food tour is a great way to squeeze in what Athens is really known for in one day. Thanks for giving my family a great day they will never forget!
