Anastasia Vasileiou, Director
Who we are
The Greek Gourmet designs and curates bespoke walking tour experiences for travellers who wish to discover Greece via its culture, origins, traditions, myths, gastronomy and much more.
We are the Greek Gourmet Tours because all of our tours and workshops include a curated culinary experience!!!
Flavours, Untold stories, Authentic smiles and people passionate about archaeology, history and great food.
These are the key factors that led us to creating the Greek Gourmet, a unique walking & touring adventure club headquartered predominantly in Athens and Crete and opening gradually branches in other destinations throughout Greece.
Let us immerse you into a world of exclusive experiences, anecdote stories, ritual retreats, charming food & wine venues and most of all the Ancient Greek soul and spirit.
We at the Greek Gourmet Tours are committed to travelling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, local economies and the environment. It's important to remember that what may be acceptable behaviour, dress and language in your own country, may not be appropriate in another. Please keep this in mind while travelling.
During our multi-day tours we stay in locally run accommodation including guesthouses, smaller-scale hotels and homestays in an effort to support the local economies.
We also visit locally-run restaurants and markets where travellers will have opportunities to support local businesses and purchase handicrafts created by local artisans.
