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's own expense). The Mezedakia tour is also suitable for vegetarians.
