Meet Your Local Athens Tour Guides

Our team of Athens Food Tour Guides includes local experts that speak several different languages.

Born and bred in Lesini, a small farming village, I had the opportunity to experience age-old customs and traditions, the beauties of rural Greece, and the authentic flavors of its countryside. A memory that led me to culinary school and afterwards to professional kitchens around the country.
Fifteen years ago, when I first moved to Athens, I started to explore it as if I was traveling. Now, as a licensed tour guide, it still is my favorite thing to do
One of my favorite bites is spinach pie with golden crispy handmade phyllo dough and tons of feta cheese.
