A delicious moment thanks to the food but also the guide, the typical shops and the old city’s streets. A real travel through the Greek culture. I recommend the tour to discover and enjoy, the Messinian cuisine as well as Kalamata historical center.
Thank you so much for sharing with me the traditional food from Greece. I love Mediterranean style, way of life, Greek people, the variety of local products are amazing and really tasty. My favourite dish after this tour is “zucchini, potatoes, cheese pies” and of course, lalagi and olives as appetizers.

Thank you Fontini for a fabulous tour and sharing your passion and knowledge of food, history and Greece. The vendors we visited were welcoming and friendly, and their produce was exceptional. I can highly recommend this tour. A tip before you go on this tour do not eat breakfast!
Thank you for your comment and we are very happy that you enjoyed our tour. We hope to see you again soon.
All of the food we tasted was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the explanations and insights from our guide Fotini, who we highly recommend. We stopped at 10 places with lunch at the end, so don’t eat beforehand! The shops are close to each other, so more time is spent relaxing and sampling than walking. We are very glad we took the advice of another reviewer to take the tour during the beginning of our vacation so we knew what to order later. It was one of our top experiences In Kalamata, especially since we wanted learn more about the beautiful Greek culture.
