Taste the most local food in Athens. Skip the tourist traps and discover the local bites of the Greek culture. More than 14 traditional, delicious, freshly cooked tastings. We will be walking in the heart of central Athens, where Athenians do their shopping for the daily meal.

We will introduce you to the vendors of our favorite local shops, share traditional breakfast delicacies, smell and learn about herbs and spices, visit a deli shop to taste the original honey glazed yoghurt and take you to the magical word of olives. Also, one of the best Greek traditional restaurants (mageirio) will be accommodating you for a seated lunch, cheese tasting and of course, you’ll try a dessert.
During the walk, you’ll meet our old friends in the oldest vegetable, fish and meat market of Athens and you’ll also try our best wines and distillates of the region.
Get the chance to know how to cook all the dishes you will try, and get local insight into recipes, tips for Athens, the islands and the culinary traditions.
Join us in a “Mediterranean Diet” food tour and discover the secrets of our culinary tradition.
In case your preferred dates are not available, you can always ask us to make some room and we will be happy to host you.

All dietary restrictions can be met.
Looking forward to meeting and hosting you to our Delicious Athens.

The best way to explore Athens

I’ve been on a lot of food tours but this was definitely the best. Julia and George went out of their way to make everyone feel included and share really interesting stories. All of the food was so delicious and locally sourced. Would recommend to anyone visiting Athens for an authentic and engaging experience.

The Very Best of the Greek Culinary Culture!

Julia and her husband, George, took us on an amazing tour of their city, introducing us to the sights, smells, and tastes of Athens. Not only was it delectable, it was educational! We learned so many nuances along the path that they took us on. Having grown up here, Julia has an in depth knowledge of her city and she leaves you with a richness that makes you want to return. While George forges ahead to prepare for the next stops along the path, Julia fills in so many details along the way. Our experience included hand-crafted pies, third generation artfully crafted spices and honey, the fish market, the meat market in which Julia's father once had a booth, to carefully selected restaurants with historical significance in which you experience the culinary heritage for which the Greek's are known. A great cook herself having learned from her grandmother, Julia has a vast knowledge of the seasonality of the Greek foods (varying foods for the seasons) and shares her knowledge and family tradition throughout the tour. She even takes you by her childhood home that is now a boutique hotel and shares stories of growing up there. You leave with visions of her living there as a young girl with her multigenerational family that taught her so much about the importance of bringing the family together through food. They were the optimal host and hostess providing the very best of the Greek culinary culture!! Thank you Julia and George!!
