Highlights

  • Exploring the city with a different focus
  • The full story on the street snacks of Greece: their history, how they're made and who makes the best ones in town
  • The food - delicious, traditional, authentic

What you can expect

To start things off, you'll be assigned to a team and an area of the city center. Once you arrive in your area, you'll be broken down into smaller squads and given your own mission briefing, which will include background information on certain items that help make up the Greek street food menu, along with a map of where to find the very best examples of these items. You will then have to locate the item, purchase it, photograph it and eat it, all within a pre-established time limit, before you can start hunting the next item in your assignment. The team with the fastest feet and mouths will win.

This street food hunt is a different way to explore the city, seeking out special spots that locals know as the best sources for the traditional food treats they love. You'll learn about the origins of items, such as the humble tiropita, or cheese pie, that comes in dozens of variations, each with a story behind it, or the koulouri, the sesame-seed bread ring sold from carts throughout the city. Along the way, you'll discover your own favorites, and gain some genuine street credentials of your own as an expert Athenian grazer. Most of all, you'll have fun getting acquainted with the city and its amazing food culture in a novel way. So bring a good appetite, comfortable walking shoes and a sense of curiosity, and we'll supply the rest!

Testimonials

"We did the night tour with Antonis on our first day in Athens - what a fabulous way to start our trip! Antonis took us to five stellar bars that we would definitely not have found on our own - unique drinks, amazing food and lovely atmosphere at each of them. Antonis himself seems to know everybody at every bar - not surprising given what a fun and awesome guy he is! We cannot recommend the tour with Antonis enough - he is awesome and the tour is an absolute must do in Athens!!"

"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!!"
