What people say about this experience

"I came to Athens for a business trip and just had one day off. The Taste of Greece tour was perfect! Not only for the itinerary, but mainly because my guides were true EXPERTS! Soritis and Paulina gave me a master class about Greek history and culture. And not only that…the wine tasting was excellent! If you have the chance, go for it."
