3-Hour Beyond Feta, a Food Tour of Athens - Escorted Day Tour
While it may not be well-represented outside of Greece, Greek cuisine goes well beyond feta cheese, olives, and other common favorites. On this Athens Food Tour we'll join a local chef to explore local markets and specialty food stores, delving into the varied, nuanced, and often highly localized world of Greek food. Along the way we'll sample local wine, taste thick honey with full-fat Greek yogurt, and try oily olives and anise-flavored ouzo. Are you hungry?

Even though you've probably come here to see the "glory that was Greece," perhaps best symbolized by the Parthenon and the superb statues and vases in the National Archaeological Museum, allow some time to make haste slowly in Athens. Your best moments may come sitting at a small cafe, sipping a tiny cup of the sweet sludge that the Greeks call coffee, or getting hopelessly lost in the Plaka -- only to find yourself in the shady courtyard of an old church, or suddenly face to face with an ancient monument you never knew existed. With only a little advance planning, you can find a good hotel here, eat well in convivial restaurants, enjoy local customs such as the refreshing afternoon siesta and the leisurely evening volta (promenade or stroll) -- and leave Athens planning to return, as the Greeks say, tou chronou (next year).
