Athens Next Door Greek Food Tour in Astoria - Queens
US$109.00
Overview
Take a break from the bustle of Manhattan and head out into Queens for a gourmet Greek food tour of Astoria. Going with a guide ensures you visit hidden gems and eateries loved by locals, from food trucks to bakeries. Along the way, chat with your guide and learn about Greek culture in Astoria—a history that visitors to New York often miss.
What to Expect
Athens Next Door Food Tour is proud to take you only to the best Greek spots of Astoria! Our authenticly Greek stops vary from sit-down restaurants to food trucks, from groceries to butcher shops, from bakeries to Greek churches & parks!
  • We meet in a cozy Greek taverna, conveniently located just a few steps from the subway station, for the first introductions, a mezze platter, some ouzo, and laughs!
  • As we stroll through the quaint streets of the neighborhood, we never keep our mouth empty.
  • We certainly grab an authentic souvlaki from one of the oldest food trucks of NYC.
  • We are served hot loukoumades with honey & nutella (!) and a Greek coffee to cut the sweetness!
  • We do a feta cheese tasting and indulge ourselves in a luscious olive-bar (YES!)
  • We learn both the right -- pronunciation and OF COURSE the flavor -- of a real gyros!
  • We wash everything down with an assortment of baklava treats and an iced Frappé!
