Instead of finding the best shops-restaurants from Trip-Advisor
- First of all, your tour escorts on this tour, as well as on the other tours offered by Grecopaths, are locals. They have lived their whole lives in this area that you are visiting for the first time. Whatever the internet says, locals have the first say.
- We don’t only go to shops-restaurants with you; we will take you to the homes of Greeks to experience the Greek hospitality, their customs and traditions from nearby. You will have authentic conversations with the house owners, they will treat you and feed you with what they have and what they eat themselves during the day.
- The Chef-expert on the gastronomic tours of Grecopaths has access to all the kitchens of the shops-restaurants that we visit. For this reason you will be certain of the best quality of all the products that have been used and of the styling of your plate as well (food style).
- Walking through town with your tour escort will give you the opportunity to learn a lot about the city of Nafplio and its highlights, but also to develop other topics of discussion: about their daily life, other local activities, events that are organized in town and surrounding villages by local operators, depending on your time of visit.
- Depending the season, the hour (morning or evening hours), your eating habits/food restrictions, the number of persons, the season, we will adjust the menu, as well as the walking tour, so you can enjoy to the fullest exactly that what you want.
- We are flexible, as during our food tour it has happened that our visitor wants to increase the hiking route and minimize the food or vice versa. No stress, everything is possible, you are on vacation, don’t forget it.
- We know all the shop owners very well on personal level and we help the local economy by giving an income to the financially most “weak“, having off course the standard quality that we request for you.
- Food is the best way to learn about the mentality and culture of people. Drink to your health and play a game that the ancient Greeks played at their symposiums!
