    The tour starts at 11am at the Acropolis Metro Station, exit Makriyanni/Dionysiou Arepaghitou Str. Our hosts will take you by the hand on this journey where you will enjoy tasty food and immerse into the richness of local life. Along with the delicious bites, throughout the tour you will enjoy stories about Greek culture, customs and traditions.

We’ll grab tasty pastries and a coffee, refreshing drinks and various delicacies in unique Greek places. If you happen to take this tour on Friday when the local market opens, we’ll take you to this colorful venue, a great place to explore Greek aromas and feel the pulse of the local life. Visits to local pastry production venue will sweeten up your day! We’ll end this beautiful sense-awakening and cultural discovery with some top bites and lessons from the Greek tradition.

    We are sure that this experience will be the best souvenir you will take home with you!
