Great tour through the flea market and trying some local traditional Greek dishes that tourists would not typically know about. Some of the restaurants that we ate at were for locals and it was nice to be able to see what the locals eat and how they dine. I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, however there was nothing special, memorable or unique about the experience. There were only two of us, which I though would create a more intimate experience. The food was okay, not great. I've had other tours in other cities and this did not compare, Rome, Lisbon, etc. I felt responsible and was apologetic toward my travel partner as I made the suggestion to do the tour.

It ended up being a private tour for the two of us. We were shown through a bustling part of town, up and coming from its days as a red light district and now a cool place. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and its history. We learnt that cold frappé is the real Greek coffee, had great pastry, tasted cheese and ham, were shown the best gyros in town and had a marvelous dessert. Great fund and impossible to find on our own: Well worth the tour!
