We took this food tour after reading reviews. It didn't quite live up to our expectations. Thought we might stop in more shops for more tastes of different foods. It was the beginning of our trip and we wanted to know of foods to eat while we were there. This was not exactly how it went. Had a really great gyro at the end. But that's about it. Not worth the money we spent.

It was a very good tour. I enjoy a different view of Athens. I loved the colors and the pictures in the market. The meat market is an unexpected experience, really you can meet East and west in this area of Athens. Thank you Key tours!

The tour began promptly at 10 and after brief introductions and a little history of Greek cuisine and influences from other countries, we were off!

We stopped at about 10 different locations and sampled local foods that were known to me as a tourist from the USA.

Each food had a story behind it, so as well as cuisine we got a little history lesson as well.

Our tour guide, Despina, answered all of our questions, pointed out places of interest and let us shop at each stop if we were so inclined.

Although to price may seem high, it is definitely worth doing early on in your visit to Athens as you will learn about local food spots that charge local prices which will save money in the end.

This was a very worthwhile 3 1/2 hours and I bought several tasty items to bring back to the states!

We booked the Athens Food Tour for what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the summer. We were surprised and delighted to taste the variety of items available - although my absolute favorite was Loukamades (greek donuts drenched in honey). Our guide Amalia was great - very knowledgeable about the food but also well-informed and talkative about current Eurozone events and the impact on Greek society. We found the conversation very enlightening and the food (both in quantity and quality) to be excellent. The Greeks eat a lot!
We allotted about 2.5 hours for the tour but our group was small (4 of us) and Amalia was willing to spend extra time with us so we ended up spending about 4 hours altogether - which was wonderful.

Even with 100+ heat, the tour was great. We moved at a nice pace that didn't tax anyone in the group and spent plenty of time inside restaurants and markets so the temps didn't really matter.

This has been a wonderful experience. I was simply amazed by this tour, going around parts of Athens which I would have never visited any other way, eating all that traditional food, talking with locals, laughing, laughing, laughing!

Fantastic fun and an experience not to be missed! For our second visit to Athens, my husband and I
wanted to do something different. We decided on the Athens Food Tour  ~ I
would highly recommend it to any person interested in getting off the 'beaten tourist path'!

Our tour guide and the company owner, was absolutely engaging and genuine - she connected
with us more as a friend than as a guide. The tour itself was unlike any other my husband and I have
taken (which includes great private tours in cities including Rome, San Francisco, Victoria, Istanbul, NYC,
Cairo)
The places we visited (not touristy) highlighted some of the country's best food and included delicious
items to try - high quality and generous portions.

Truly a one of a kind food experience!

Just returned from 3 weeks in Greece. One of the things my sister and I had agreed on was that we wanted to do the Walking Food Tour offered by this company. We were greeted at the appointed time by Amalia (ah-ma-LEE-ah). She was bright, friendly and really took us to her favorite personal places. The menu at each place was varied and delicious and it was a pleasure to have someone so familiar with the area to guide us. We loved having the opportunity to purchase additional amounts of our favorite new tastes. From street corner pastries to grocery store delicacies, Amalia shared interesting facts about a traditional Greek diet and showed us the light! I sincerely had a wonderful time on this tour and hope you are lucky enough to have Amalia as your guide!
