Is there a lot of walking?

To join our Food Tour, you must wear comfortable shoes. The route is not too difficult and there are no hills or stairs. If you walk slowly, then our guide will walk slowly as well. We will be able to sit in some of the venues! We highly recommend comfortable shoes such as sneakers and to avoid flip flop as streets in Athens are very slippery!

Unfortunately, the weather is unpredictable in Athens. We do not issue refunds as per our terms and conditions. We also inform you that we never cancel a booking even if we have only 2 people!

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
