This total food tour combines three of our most popular food and drink group tours – Taste of Athens, Extreme Bites, & Posh Happy Hour
On this jam-packed Athens city tour, we will introduce you to Greek gastronomy. From the most traditional dishes to the most extreme!
We start our journey in the historical center and taste the 'big five' of Greek cuisine in their natural habitat: ouzo, feta, olives, olive oil and koulouri.
Your local guide will show you around the best of the Central Market, taking you to places few tourists venture and helping you to discover a variety of delicious Greek specialties. From the simple koulouri (a round-shaped bread with sesame seeds) and delicate local pastries, to the Greek staples of feta and olives, the Central Market is a feast for the senses. We will also try either an invigorating Greek coffee (in the winter) or a cold frappe in warmer days, which are popular local beverages.
Next on this culinary tour of Athens, we'll drop by a Greek deli that sells traditional produce and is a popular shopping spot for locals. Here you can chat to the shop owner and ask him about all of his produce — and taste some of course!
Moving along the old streets of downtown Athens, you will discover the traditional tastes of some of the most unusual and extreme local dishes in the city. Try the most popular “hangover” cure in Greece, local atherina in the cone (Mediterranean sand smelt), liver, snails and rabbit.
If you feel like you may slip into a food coma, our next stop will refresh you as we enjoy three signature cocktails while spotting celebrities in Athen’s posh neighbourhood - Kolonaki.
Come away from this tour with all the pro knowledge you need on Greek gastronomy!
