Your evening commences at Syntagma Square, the very center of Athens. Get ready to pay homage to the age-old Greek tradition of wine-making, and excite your palate with indigenous Greek wines paired with locally-produced cheeses.
Not getting into the spirit of things yet? A visit to the oldest distillery of Athens will allow the party vibe to descend, as you sample the sweetness of rakomelo and the wide variety of Greek liqueurs. Your guide will be on hand to explain the origins of your chosen tipple and highlight the different stages of the distillery process.
Are Greek beers really a thing? Of course they are, and even more so in Koukaki! Our tour guide will lead you to a microbrewery, where you will meet beer experts, ready to introduce you to their craft. Learn about the process of brewing beer and realize how underestimated Greek beers really are.
Heading back out into the night air, you will make your way to a highly acclaimed cocktail bar. The resident mixologist will be able to guide you through the various Greek liqueurs, ensuring you select a cocktail to suit your preferences. Are you looking for a refreshing, fruity drink? Then request ‘Kitro’ from Naxos. If you prefer a drink with a little more depth, opt for ‘Mastiha’ from the island of Chios.
After an evening full of wine flights, distillery visits and cocktail bars, we bring the tour to a close with a serving of traditional street food, the internationally-acclaimed souvlaki. Your guide will show you one of the best souvlaki-spots in town, where you can mingle with the locals and satisfy your hunger. This tour is designed to make sure you become acquainted with the Athenian nightlife and experience the sights and sounds of the city the way a local does.
