Before going to Athens, I looked at the many food tour options, and Bespoke Food Tours stood out because of Vivian's quick responses to emails and her willingness to accommodate my needs for a late start and a private tour that was still reasonably priced. She provided my husband and I with a truly authentic experience. The food was amazing and she really knew her facts. I'd highly recommend this tour. In addition to being an amazing guide during the tour, she also followed up with us by emailing us with lots of helpful information for our trip to Santorini.

Thank me h

I recently visited Athens on a work trip but had very limited free time. Still, I knew I had to see the archaeological sites (Day 2) and eat authentic Greek food (Day 1). With no recommendations, I turned to Trip Advisor to search for best private tours in Athens to make the most of my limited time. Bespoke Food tours was highly rated, the website looked good, and the potential tours looked even better! After contacting Vivian directly through her website, I decided on the Sunday Food Tour. Vivian was accommodating and helpful in arranging which tour to take given my limited schedule. This tour was everything I was hoping it would be but hesitant to expect (given the unknown of booking a tour based solely upon Trip Advisor reviews)!!! It was a walking tour through parts of the city with a pause for some history lessons here and there. The little bit of history provided by Vivian helped orient me when I explored the archaeological sites on my own. Importantly, the focus were stops at delicious eateries frequented by the locals! No tourists traps on this tour. Greek coffee at a chic cafe, Greek pies (filo with sweet and savory fillings) you can see made in front of you, fresh koulouri, meze at a local pub with the locals arguing at the next table and so much more. The food was divine and it was so interesting to hear about the traditions surrounding specific dishes. My favorites: Greek coffee, feta spread with peppers, and fresh olive oil. Note: I booked the tour as a singleton at a increased price and there was a lot of food - enough to take leftovers back to my hotel. You won't go hungry so heed the warning not to have breakfast beforehand. I highly recommend a Bespoke Food tour - what an amazing way to see the real city of Athens and dine with the locals!

My husband and I had the privilege of doing a walking food tour in Athens with Vivian two summers ago while on our honeymoon. Starting her own food tour company was a dream of hers at the time. We’re so happy that she’s made her dream come true. Vivian is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about Greek food and culture. The foods she introduced us to were delicious, and we were stuffed by the end of our time together! In fact, we enjoyed the places she took us to so much that we returned on subsequent days for more snacks on our own. While on our food tour, we felt like we were touring with a longtime friend. We had so much fun with Vivian and would love to go on another tour with her in the future. Also, her recommendations for other places to go eat on our own while on the rest of our stay in Athens were amazing. She shared where the locals go to eat, which we greatly appreciated. Our food tour with Vivian was one of our favorite experiences while in Greece.

Vivian amazed us with her great knowledge on Ancient Greece and Greek gastronomy. We even learnt about ancient Greeks cuisine :) ! I really enjoyed the food and wine and the hidden treasures of the city centre. The combination of Anatolic and western cultures coming together was truly astonishing. Thank you Vivian for bringing light to our minds and eyes! Definitely recommend this experience :)

Our personal guide Vivian, founder of BeSpoke tours, the beekeeper, was AMAZING,extremely knowledgable, friendly and patient. This is probably one of the best tours ever! Especially if you are a major foodie like me. The tour was as private as it could be with only myself and my partner. Being on the private bespoke food tour was such a memorable experience . I'm serious book it!
