These are the fixed elements of the tour; in addition you will, depending on the circumstances, national holidays, events and the desires of the group, discover the Psiri area, the student quarter of Exargeia, the trendy Gazi district, the lively port of Piraeus, the national gardens, the changing of the guard at Syntagma square, the mondaine Kolonaki, or one of the many other sights of Athens. During this guided citywalk you will receive information about both ancient and modern Athens, you can literally taste some Greek specialities and meet interesting local people.

Mezedakia tour
An introduction to the Greek kitchen. Mezedakia are a kind of Greek 'tapas'. This offers a great opportunity to taste many different dishes from the Greek cuisine. During this tour, that we make partly on foot and partly by public transport, we visit several bars and restaurants in different parts of Athens. These can vary from a traditional ouzerie to an authentic cellar restaurant, and from a mezedopoleio to a bar in the harbour. The common theme among all of them is that they are mainly visited by the local people. At each place you get something to drink and to eat, so at the end of the tour you have had a complete diner. The included dishes, and sometimes the drinks as well, are fixed (additional drinks or dishes can be ordered at one'ps own expense). The mezedakia tour is also suitable for vegetarians.

We eat 'the Greek way'; this means that there are all kinds of mezedakia, a kind of Greek 'tapas', in the middle of the table, which are shared with the 'parea', you and your companions.
