Private Athens: Taste the City

Thought Greek food was just feta, olives, and a truck load of moussaka? Wrong! This Athens private food tour sets the story straight on the varied food scene in this ancient city with a modern twist, and you’ll leave full of tasty treats and local knowledge on one of the most underrated cuisines in the world. You’ll meet your local guide and begin this Athens tour by exploring Kotzia Square, located in the heart of Athens.

The square is surrounded by gorgeous neoclassical buildings, which were constructed in the early 18th century, and also some ancient ruins of old houses that you will have a peek at on your way to the market. Your local guide will show you around the best of the Central Market, taking you to places few tourists venture and helping you to discover a variety of delicious Greek specialties. From the simple koulouri (a round-shaped bread with sesame seeds) and delicate local pastries, to the Greek staples of feta and olives, the Central Market is a feast for the senses. We also try either an invigorating Greek coffee (in the winter) or a cold frappe in warmer days, which are popular local beverages.

Athens food is a rich mix of old and new, traditional and modern, and this tour is the perfect way to discover all these aspects. Next on your private culinary tour of Athens, we then drop by a Greek deli that sells traditional produce and is a popular shopping place for locals. Here you can chat to the shop owner and ask him about all of his produce — and taste some of course! This spot sells the best seasonal food available, perfect for a picnic in the city if you’d like to return another time during your stay in Athens.

Finally on this Athens tour, you’ll make your way to Monastiraki Square where your adventure will end. Your guide will be happy to recommend other places to see in this ancient city and where some of the best local restaurants are located, if you can stomach even more Greek deliciousness! If you feel like slipping into a food coma, your local guide will also give you hand in finding your way back to your accommodation. (If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Taste of Athens group tour.) This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.

Full-Day Athens Walking Tour

Meet your English-speaking local guide in your hotel lobby for your private full-day Athens walking tour.

The Parthenon, the greatest monument of classical Greek architecture, crowns the Acropolis of Athens (Athiná) like a majestic diadem; a dozen other important ruins and ancient monuments stand amid the busy streets of the modern city as reminders of the glories of a bygone era. Ancient Athens was the birthplace of Greek democracy, philosophy, and drama. It reached the pinnacle of its power under the leadership of Pericles from 462 to 439 BC. Modern Athens (population 3.1 million) is a relatively new city, dating largely from the early 19th century, which was made the capital of the new Greek state in 1834. Despite the size of the capital, the old town district of Pláka and the nearby bazaar retain the bustling atmosphere of a small Greek town.
