During this food experience, you will feel the real pulse of the city, as you explore food stalls, coffee shops, open-air markets, and well-hidden tavernas. Let your senses guide you; this is the local food market, the most vibrant place in Athens, a year-round food oasis. Here you will mingle with the locals while they do their daily shopping and get to know the best quality ingredients. This is a heaven for foodies and a market like no other!
Next, you will taste different snacks like the famous Kalamata olives and the world's best pistachios from Aegina island as we visit various local sellers. You will enjoy a really authentic lunch in a local eatery (taverna) with Greek house wine and eat tasty mezedes (Greek tapas). The last stop of this gastronomic experience is a family-owned distillery, founded back in 1897 where you will taste some of the best spirits/liquors of Greece among them, the famous Mastiha liqueur and the world-famous Ouzo.

What to expect
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the food walking tour in Athens. We were only visiting for a couple of days so it was great to see a different, more "local" part of Athens and walk through the markets. Pascal was a great host, very knowledgeable and friendly, plus he was able to accommodate us being vegetarians. We tried lots of different food on the tour - everything was delicious. Would highly recommend!
Great experience to explore the Greek food with a local guide! Highly recommend him and this tour.
We enjoyed our time and lunch with Pascal! Very informative and great conversation. Thank you!
Everyone should start their visit to Athens with Pascal! Started in a beautiful historic restaurant with Greek coffee that was delicious. Pascal took us to several locations and I learned so much history, culture, and food! Really enjoyed all of it. Highly recommend
