Tour description

Discover hidden local food spots, retail shops and a quiet oasis in the city’s busiest neighborhoods as you sample some of the city's extreme culinary delights. Later we'll show you the city's coolest neighbourhood for a night out and sip local infused signature cocktails as we kickback and watch the world go by

This tour combines two of our most popular group tours – Extreme Bites & Posh Happy Hour. Make the most of your trip to Athens and experience the city like a local! Your local guide will show you around the best of the Central Market, taking you to places few tourists venture to, helping you to discover a variety of delicious Greek specialties. Athens food is a rich mix of old and new, traditional and modern and this tour is the perfect way to discover all these aspects. Moving along the old streets of Athens’s downtown, you will discover the traditional tastes of some of the most unusual and extreme local dishes in Athens. Try the most popular 'hangover' cure in Greece, local atherina in the cone (Mediterranean sand smelt), liver, snails and rabbit. From here, we’ll move to one of Athens oldest and poshest neighbourhoods - Kolonaki, where we will enjoy three signature cocktails in three unique and completely different bars and if that wasn’t enough, we'll grab a gourmet sandwich made up of all organic ingredients. The home of our snack has been a famous cheesemaker since the 1930’s and is known for its collaboration with and support of local Greek farmers and small artisan producers. This area has some seriously chic credentials too, attracting the likes of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Melina Merkouri just to name a few. At the end of the tour, your guide will give you directions of how to go back to your hotel or tell you where to spend the rest of the night with your new friends.
