Greek Meze Cooking Course

Great day with George


Our family (my wife and I and our two nineteen year old daughters) had a great walk with George (he knows a lot of history as well as an expert in street art) and then he helped us make a fantastic meal in a very nice space. Highly recommended

Terrific Tour with George


George was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Athens as well as street art around town. He took us through the Byzantine history of the city in one segment, and the incredible open market in another. We finished up with a cooking class in a beautiful space and enjoyed a meal and chit chatting about sports by the end. Highly, highly recommend.

Cooking with Chef George


If I were on death row, I would want Chef George to prepare my last meal! He taught us how to purchase food and prepare for a great meal this is one is personable. He was fun he was personable and we highly recommend Chef George to anyone. We tried to hire him to come to the US to be our chef but sadly he declined.

Awesome Tour


We met George in the lobby of our hotel and walked to the market where we learned how to choose the freshest meat and fish. After purchasing a few items for our meal we walked to the kitchen and were soon engaged in hands-on preparation of delicious fried meatballs, eggplant dip and cheese pie triangles. Recipes came home with us. Yum!



Greek Meze Cooking Course

A day in the heart of Athens


Unforgettable walk through the heart of Athens led by Athens Insiders. From the picturesque apartment that they recommended to us, we avoid urban chaos to enter a labyrinth of streets discovering its small cafes and delicious taverns where we taste aromas and flavors and embrace for a few hours, the local culture. A highly recommended experience for those who wish to get away from conventional tourism and enjoy the best corners of the city, like just another Athenian.
