What a better way to indulge in traditional Greek culinary recipes than by taking this half-day food tour? This neighborhood walk revolves around sampling Greece’s traditional food. Prepare to savor a sweet, cream-filled, crunchy “filo” layered pie “bougatsa”, fork into perfectly fried doughnut balls drenched in honey “loukoumades”, and savor a satisfying meld of flavors from warm pita bread filled with grilled meat, fresh veggies and a traditional sauce “gyros”. In between, you’ll taste the authentic Feta cheese, Greek olives, and sip Greek wines.

Your food tour begins with the guide leading you through the vivid and historic Athens Central Market, where stands with fresh fish and meat set the scene for sales as locals bargain prices down with the owners. Proceed to the city’s colorful, aromatic and spicy street market. Prepare to challenge your olfactory skills and walk through specialty shops selling traditional, Greek products such as  local wine, olive oil, cheese and olives. Savor fresh-made pies, Greek pastries and yummy wine spirits while gaining insight into Greece’s fascinating food culture, cuisine and healthy, natural organic ingredients. This is probably one of the most delicious food experiences you will ever taste!
