Tour Reviews

Highly personalized and insightful foray into Greek Cuisine

Elena, our guide took us (my husband and me) through a lovely night time stroll through the Syntagma, Monastiraki, Plaka and Psirri. She took us to a variety of places from chic cafes to family-run tavernas. We loved just about every dish we sampled and learnt so much about the cuisine, it's influences and the history.

We did the tour on the first day of our 2 week holiday and this set us up so well for the rest of our trip. We knew what to order going forward and were not stuck to eating Sovlaki and Gyros for every meal. Elena gave us helpful suggestions about restaurants to visit in Santorini and Nafplio as well. Thank you GreekingMe and Elena for this wonderful experience.

Got to experience the food tour in the night thanks to my friends who gifted it to me and my wife. We had no idea what to expect but by the end of the tour we decided that for all our future trips we will start with a food tour.

Elena was fabulous in taking us through the various options of Greek cuisine and that set the tone for our wonderful two week trip. We had this on the first night in Athens and thanks to Elena's tips we visited a few more restaurants in other places across Greece. On the night we were back in Athens we went back to one of the restaurants (Ergon Deli). We will definitely recommend everyone who visits Greece (especially asians) who are not familiar with authentic Greek cusine to signup with these guys. Thanks for the experience.

A perfect evening of local delicacies...

We had a private night tour for x5 people in Athens. Dimitra met us at Syntagma Square and was very helpful and welcoming right from the start. She first took us through some history of the square and interesting facts before the first stop. The first stop wasn't far away and WOW the food was amazing... just what we were looking for, some local delicacies that we wouldn't have known to try, we even got to try some local spirit that is made up from the unused parts of wine grapes, it was delicious! (I can’t remember what it’s called though Sorry!)
There were two other amazing stops…there was a lot of historical information provided as we walked between stops and all questions answered, we definitely didn’t need to eat dinner after the tour, it provided more than enough food. I don’t want to give away all their secrets, because if your 50/50 on doing this tour, I highly recommend that you GO FOR IT! It really was excellent and worth every euro! Dimitra was a fantastic host, it was more like having an extra friend for a couple of hours than a tour guide. We dealt with Nikos for the booking and some of the finer details of the booking, this was all through email and he was excellent, replies quickly and can answer any questions you may have beforehand.

I booked a private Athens by Night Food Tour & Wine Tasting tour with my wife. Our guide Marina was lovely, knowledgeable and so much fun! She showed us around neighborhoods we wouldn't have found on our own, told us stories and personal anecdotes of places and history of Athens. The food we got to taste was excellent and eclectic. We thoroughly enjoyed our night, highly recommended!
