"I just got back from Athens and I must say that the authentic home cooked meal at Korina's was excellent..after a long day of work Korina came home and cooked our meal including entree,wine and lamb..if you ever have a chance to try this you must, you won't be disappointed."

"Alternative Athens does it right! There is no better way to get a feel and taste of authentic Athens than accompanying Zoe on a delightful tour of off-the-beaten path food delights. We discovered amazing side streets while learning about the history, fine art and traditions of wonderful treats. This was an amazing way to begin our Athens adventure. Zoe brought the heart and soul of Athens to a never to be forgotten culinary stroll."

"Amazing cultural insight of the city! Nikos brought us to the places we wouldn't even think to explore in Athens. He's an artist himself, so it was very interesting to listen to his point of view on the artistic level of the murals as well as the stories behind them."
