Athens is a great destination for food and wine, as you can find international and ethnic cuisine, but - most importantly - Greek cuisine, which has been described as one of the most varied and healthy cuisines in the world.

This tour includes a three hour "walk and taste" activity. We will walk in different neighbourhoods of the centre and taste different types of food and drink. I will also give you tips on Greek dishes you should try, and tips to eat healthy while in Greece!

We can design different culinary activities according to your needs, culinary expectations and dietary requirements - for example:

• Beer tasting, where we taste several Greek beers along with a selection of Greek cheese and sausage (duration 2-3 hours)
• A "dinner with a Greek", where I will explain to you all the dishes in a Greek menu (duration 2,5 - 3 hours)
• Cooking classes and dinner at a Greek home (duration 4 hours)
• Food shopping, cooking classes and dinner at a Greek home (duration 5-6 hours)

Please note that this tour starts at 17.00 daily. On weekends, we can start any time after 10pm, and the tour can also be merged with other tours. Please ask!

Groups of four people and over have a discount, please ask. It is possible to have the tour for one person only, at the price of 100 USD.

Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa, I am from Athens and I am a social researcher / statistician. I love travelling and meeting foreigners for as long as I can remember. I lived in London for several years, and have travelled to many European countries, USA, Latin America and the Middle East. I started showing people around Athens and Greece in 2006, and have been doing it ever since. My purpose as a guide is to make you feel like a local and to have a day you will remember for a long time! We can go around Athens, go to the beach in summer, cook and eat together and talk about life in Greece, especially during the crisis. Or we can listen to some Greek music, and I can teach you some Greek words to use during your trip here. I can also give you tips for other places you are going to in Greece, and suggest the perfect island for you, depending on what you like. Needless to say, we can design a day in Athens for you, the way you always imagined it! Feel free to contact me! Full profile

Getting to walk around Athens and taste local specialties was a must for my husband and I and Vanessa's food tour did not disappoint! Vanessa was very friendly and met us in an easy to find location. She showed us around some of her favorite spots many of which were only visited by locals and customized our tour to our interests and asked about any food allergies or preferences. We chose to taste smaller portions of multiple things rather than sitting and having a larger meal and sampled everything from greek coffee and yogurt to cheese from Crete. We finished our tour with full stomachs and Vanessa even left us with several restaurants to try during the remainder of our time in Athens! Overall, this is a great tour and a side of Athens you (and your stomach) don't want to miss!

Vanessa did a great job showing us around Athens for a nighttime food tour. We went to a lot of places and tried a lot of different things we normally wouldn't have by ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour and I will be contacting her again when we return to Greece, as I know we will sometime in the near future.
