This private walking tour designed by your friends at Real Greece, takes you on a walk through the flavors of Greece and is definitely amongst our guests’ favorites. Your mid morning tour begins with a traditional Greek breakfast (minus the cigarettes!). Ever wonder how the Greeks create those fine sheets of magical dough used to wrap so many Greek foods? Now is your chance, and then you’ll get to sample both a sweet and savory breakfast before continuing on through the maze of winding streets in Athens Central market district – stopping along the way to taste a variety of food products from around Greece.
You’ll have the chance to do a comparison of Greek olive oils, visit some of the city’s oldest & most traditional spice shops, sausage makers & cheese mongers as well as a stop at a Greek vitner’s wine shop where you can sample a variety of grape products unique to Greece. We’ll take a break in our favorite little hidden away “koutouki” or “joint” – Eleni’s little restaurant attracts local business people & market people – but you won’t see any tourists around. Just steps from busy Athenas street, you could only find it escorted by one of us … and your lunch at Eleni’s is definitely your reward for selecting this tour. After lunch you’ll have the option of continuing on your own or escorted on your choice of Athens routes back to your apartment (or elsewhere
if you prefer – this is, after all, your tour!)
This is a great way to navigate through the sometimes overwhelming maze of the city’s food market district and to see & explore an area many visitors never see.
