About Gastronomy Tours

The Project

Gastronomy Tours’ project started with the idea to expand the concept of wine tourism, a universal and very successful practice that brings wine lovers close to wineries, and developing this experience with discerning food and wine lovers so as to bring them close to producers of gastronomic delights.

The content of Gastronomy Tours is the result of extensive research, documentation, and meetings with producers and businesses from all over Greece, an ongoing project frequently enriched with new additions.

Gastronomy Tours is a unique guide designed to showcase those producers and businesses of gastronomic products which are open to visitors. It also helps food lovers to experience the local culture, customs, and traditions through the universal language of gastronomy, including an annual calendar of cultural events relating to gastronomy and a glossary to familiarize the visitor with gastronomic terms.

The Gastronomy Tours mobile application, which you can download for free, is a useful tool that will enable you to find the producers closest to your location while touring, book your visits, and guide you there!

Within 24 hours, you will receive an email confirmation from the producer with your booking voucher and useful details for your visit.
