Flavors of Athens private food tour
From US$62.73
Overview
Taking your own food tour of Athens may mean you just skim the surface of the city’s cuisine. On this private tour, get a true flavor of the food locals love with your own guide to take you to shops and outlets popular with Athenians. Taste loukoumades donuts, sample traditional Greek coffee, and peruse the central market with your guide’s tips and pointers. Tastings are included for added value.
What to Expect
Greet your guide at your central Athens hotel on foot or at a convenient meeting point, and set off to explore the city’s culinary scene. As you walk, learn how Athenians are passionate about food, and hear about their daily cooking routines and favorite ingredients, techniques, and recipes.

Delve into backstreets for an authentic take on the local gastronomy, and visit bakeries, specialized food shops, and more to taste sweet and savory delicacies.

Chat to artisans and vendors for insight into their creations, and visit Athens’ central market to peruse wares from across Greece. Plus, tap into your guide’s local knowledge for ideas on tasty souvenirs to buy.

Dishes you may try include straight-from-the-oven pies, souvlaki (meat skewers), loukoumades— honey-soaked mini-donuts—and cold cuts. Stop, too, for a traditional Greek coffee and some local spirits that are part of the fabric of life here.

Your tour concludes at a central location agreed with you.
