Our teenage daughter had requested a Greek cooking class during our stay in Athens and it was a great experience.Small group of 16 guests and very hands on. Fofi, the instructor, was engaging and taught us how to make the specific dishes on the menu, but also gave us tips and insights into Greek cuisine, ingredients, culture.

We had a great guide and we enjoyed his insights and knowledge. It was great to see Athens' sights in a small group. The tour goes for 5 hours so it's a relatively long time, but it is at a casual pace. Would recommend this tour! Very good if you want to see the sights and get an idea of the historical importance of each area.

Wonderful AM Acropolis Tour! Highly recommend this early AM Acropolis Guided Tour! My husband and I took this tour in May while on our honeymoon in Greece. We only had a day to spend in Athens and this was definitely time well spent!

Greek Small-Group Cooking Class in an Athens Tavern. Our teacher was fabulous. She engaged everyone from the very beginning. Her English was impeccable and she gave great tips and knowledge. I would recommend to friends to do! Our dishes turned out yummy. I think she inspired my husband to cook!

Excellent tour. My husband and I totally enjoyed our tour of the Acropolis with a great guide, who was very knowledgeable about archeology and history. I was expecting a long walk up to the Acropolis, as I need a knee replacement, but it was an easy climb. I highly recommend that you have a guide, as it adds so much to visiting such a historical location. Also, we didn't have to stand in line to get tickets.

Great experience! The food tour was the highlight of our trip. Viki the guide was superb. She walked us through the authentic areas, letting us taste delicious foods while telling us stories about the culture and history of the locals. Highly appreciated and recommended.
