Ioannis is a really friendly guy who was communicative and welcoming from the time we met. He took me to the shop that hosted this experience and it was an absolutely fantastic experience. The quality and variety of the food was outstanding, but even more importantly the owner explained in detail all his expertise regarding tasting different products such as olive oil and vinegar. I left with a deeper knowledge and appreciation of Greek food culture and felt very lucky that I did this on my first day. Ioannis also offered plenty of suggestions for the remainder of my trip around Greece, which I greatly appreciated. Highly recommended!

John is on time, friendly, and an responsible host. This experience gave very good explanations of the origins of different Greek produce, and how the uniqueness comes out of food out of the 250 inhabited islands in Greek. There was plenty of food on offer and focused very much on a set of Greek hallmark dishes. There was in depth sharing about good extra virgin olive oil and all its health benefits. If you are after more than just the food but want to understand intimately the food and its origins this is the perfect food tour for you in Athens.
