What you can expect

Did you know that ancient Greeks and early Christians were vegetarians? Indeed, the whole basis of traditional Greek cuisine is based on food ingredients from plants and dairy products.

Find out everything about the unique produce of the Greek land - such as mastiha and saffron – and how they are used in Greek cuisine. Get a taste of colorful Greek salads and delicious pies with intriguing stuffing: a chorus of traditional cheese, olives, tomato, red peppers and olive oil flavors straight in your mouth!

You will also get to know about the Greek olive oil, one of the treasures of our land! Devour our famous “ladera”, traditional dishes prepared with onion and fresh vegetables – such as peas or artichokes – both cooked in olive oil; such meals are the very footing of Mediterranean diet with frequent presence on our tables. As your foodie guide introduces you to the Greek vegetarian culture, you will also surprise your palate with fascinating veggie croquettes and wraps full of Greek aromas!

We guarantee you will feel stuffed to the gills!
A parade of flavors for vegetarians only!

Amazing Athens Vegetarian Food Tour
Amazing Athens Vegetarian Food Tour

We enjoyed this unique tour very much! We thank you for offering a tour that explores Greek history and food. It was especially interesting due to its focus on vegetarian food. We have not seen this option in our travels and we think you are leading the way with this. The tour leader, Elena, was very knowledgeable and showed her love of history, food, and her people. We had the chance to meet people who have worked for generations cooking and baking for Athens. We sampled Greek delicacies while learning how history changed food and people. We cant thank you enough and hope that you continue this valuable tour.
During the tour Elena kept notes of our questions and promised to send a follow up email with specific recommendations. She followed up immediately and gave us further information based on our questions. She was very professional and friendly. She is clearly loved in the community and we could see why!
