This private tour, personally designed by your friends at Real Greece , takes you on a leisurely walk through all of Greece’s many flavors and scents. Without fail, it is a guest favorite. Ever wonder how the Greeks create those fine sheets of light, magical filo dough used to wrap so many of their foods? Now you can find out, while sampling an excellent sweet and savory mid-morning Greek breakfast before embarking on your tour. It takes you on winding journey through the maze of streets in the Athens central market district — stopping, of course, along the way to taste a variety of food products freshly in from the rest of Greece.

You’ll have the chance to do an authentic Greek olive oil taste test, visit some of the city’s oldest traditional spice shops, sausage and cheese mongers, as well as an appointment at an authentic Greek vintner’s wine shop, where you can sample a variety of grape products unique to Greece. We’ll take a break in our favorite hidden koutouki, or, as you might say in english, “joint” — Eleni’s restaurant, which attracts plenty of business and market people, with nary a tourist in sight. Just a few steps off of busy Athenas street, you’ll only find it while escorted by one of our people. You might say lunch at Eleni’s is your special reward for taking this tour. After lunch, you’ll have the option of continuing on your own, or being escorted back to your Athenian apartments by your choice of route. After all, it is your tour!
