"Lena and Kristos were fantastic. They fed us lots of food and drinks. The best part, however, was the discussions we had with them. Whenever I travel, I always try to schedule a meal with a local family, or a cooking lesson, and I've never been disappointed. You'll learn so much about the culture! We spent almost four hours in their home and left with a new understanding of the Greek psyche."

"Your food tour was one of the best we have been on and we have been on at least a dozen in Europe and the States. We will talk fondly about this tour in the future and it will be the standard of excellence that we will compare other food tours to."

"Amazing Tour! It exceeded my expectations. Our guide Demetra was wonderful and had an amazing knowledge of history, archaeology and culture; she did a great job highlighting things of importance and interest, while not bogging us down with too much detail. Our tour included a number of cultural stops (wine tasting, icon painting, Greek lesson, tanner and bellmaker visits, stops for local sweets and food, etc.) and every stop added to the richness of our trip. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Alternative Athens and Demetra!!"

"Outstanding! Laura was an excellent tour guide. She gave us so much information about the food and about different places in Athens and the history. We got to sample sweet and savory Greek food along with a cup of Greek coffee, everything was wonderful. Then she sent an email to give us the names of the food we tasted and the addresses of the locations so we can find them again, along with some recipes. I highly recommend this tour and Laura as a tour guide."
