Hello, I'm Julia, an Athenian food lover.,born and raised in Athens.I have always loved food and I never stop cooking, eating, tasting new things but mostly exploring my city for new tasteful experiences. My favourite food shops are located in the city centre and I have discovered it well from a very young age, since I used to shop there as a child with my grandparents who owned a food shop in the market.
Let me show you my own, tasty, delicious Athens !

    Julia and George were great hosts! The tour was extremely well organized with lots of great information from Julia who is a local. The tour also covered foods that were not the most typical which was a great way to get a more authentic experience. She also provided a list of great places to check out on our own after. We had lots of questions for her and she was so open to answering anything. She and George were both also very careful in following COVID protocols to create a safe and healthy tour. We would highly recommend taking this tour!

    If you're not planning to take yourself on a planned out food tour of Athens, you must go with Julia. It was so easy and fun, and we got to try many tasty bites. Her and George are incredibly kind and knowledgeable. Overall, it's a day well spent.

    Julia and George are great hosts. They made the food tasting very pleasant and connect it with the Greek's history, which makes it interesting and valuable. We felt though that the tour price-quality ratio is overvalued. However you will have a great time.

    I was the only one signed up for the tour and despite that Julia made time for me. Great tour of the city, food at almost every stop and history lessons. Fun and informative tour about Athens and everything related. Highly recommend. Thank you Julia for the kind hospitality.
