Begin your private tour in Athens with pickup at your hotel, after which you will engage in an important Greed ritual: coffee and glikou tou koutoulu, or the 'sweet of the spoon'. Learn about the origins of the practice from your guide while taking in the ambiance of one of Athens' oldest cafes.
Navigate through Athens' tiny streets to hidden gems and boutiques, where you will experience some of the highlights of Greece's rich pastry culture: taste lukomades, kadaifi, galatopita, among other delicacies. Additionally, stop at some herb and bread shops and taste some local cured meats at a famous hidden delicatessen. Learn about the history of Greek olive oil and taste a selection of olive oils from a variety of regions and islands in Greece, accompanied by cheeses.
Sit down for lunch at one of the city's best local tavernas, and dig in to a meal of mezethes, or small dishes. Return to your hotel for drop-off at the end of your 4-hour tour.
