Tour Description

The tour starts at 10:00 a.m. and lasts about 5 hours.

This tour gives you the chance to see the tourist and the non-tourist side of Athens. The tour starts outside Panepistimiou Metro Station, in the heart of Athens. From there we start a gastronomical journey through the most picturesque and historical quarters of Athens, like Monastiraki and Plaka.

Through vibrant colours and wonderful smells, we are introduced to the culinary traditions of Greece. We will stop at bakeries, pastry shops, cheese shops, spice shops, the central food market and other open markets selling traditional goods. Seize the opportunity to taste the delicious loukoumades with honey, the traditional bougatsa, the delicious pastourma, feta cheese, the famous Greek olives, the classical moussaka and many other specialties. This food tour ends at Andrianou Street, very close to the Ancient Agora and the Acropolis.

After the food tour ends, you will be lead to the western entrance of the Acropolis by your food specialist guide. There starts the second part of this tour, the guiding on the Hill of the Acropolis. Climb up the hill, enter Propylea (the gates of the Acropolis) and see the Parthenon, the Erechtheion with the Karyatides, the temple of Athena Nike and all other monuments. From the Acropolis, you get a marvelous view of Athens.
