The Acropolis & Museum tour was the highlight of our short stay in Athens. Marialena taught us so much and I can't recommend this experience enough. She was sweet, down to earth, and so passionate about her work as an archaeologist. We wouldn't change a thing about the experience.
Hubby and I took a private tour of the Acropolis and new museum. We were guided by the knowledgeable, wonderful Xenia who made the experience very personal.The customer service was exceptional. I would recommend Greeking.me as a wonderful group of dedicated people, to organise a great holiday experience!
Our guide was incredible, the kids were amazed with the way she presented the history...it was like a story for them and we all really enjoyed it.
Our Percy Jackson experience was superb! Marialena was an outstanding tour guide: not only was she so friendly and easy to get along with, she provided a wealth of information that made the sights just “come alive” for us all. She was especially engaging with our kids, aged 16 and 18. We learned more from her than we ever could have on our own. This trip was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a unique, memorable experience.
Evita was a wonderful guide for our family with two daughters ages 8 and 10 who are really into mythology and Percy Jackson. Evita did a nice job involving the girls in the telling of the tales and encouraging them to notice special features of the statues and architecture. We all enjoyed the seemingly magical 3D renderings of the ruins at the Acropolis.
Marialena was a phenomenal tour guide and knew just where to position us for the perfect picture or to keep us in the shade. The food and drinks part is simply to die for and can be reviewed in an entire article on its own as we sampled many different sweet and savoury dishes and local drinks. Highly recommended and such a refreshing experience from start to finish.
If you are planning to visit the Acropolis with young children and you are hesitant, I beg you to reconsider!
Had we not taken the full day tour, we would not learned about interesting facts in the Acropolis and the different districts of Athens. The tour gave us a very good perspective and overview of Athens so much so that we were walking to our destinations on a daily basis. We felt like we were locals! I wholeheartedly recommend booking a tour with Greeking.me.
We did a private family tour of the Acropolis, museum, and Agora. The email communication from the company during booking process was superb. This company does a great job with children. Our guide was impressive, Eva. She was an archeologist full of knowledge. We loved it.
This tour was amazing! Our guides were very nice, friendly, and especially knowledgeable. We learned interesting things about Greek history and culture, customs particularly about food and wine. We especially liked going to restaurants that the locals go to and not just the touristy places.
Elena, our guide took us (my husband and me) through a lovely night time stroll through Athens city center. She took us to a variety of places from chic cafes to family-run tavernas. We loved just about every dish we sampled and learnt so much about the cuisine, it's influences and the history. Thank you GreekingMe and Elena for this wonderful experience.
Got to experience the food tour in the night. Elena, our guide, was fabulous in taking us through the various options of Greek cuisine and that set the tone for our wonderful two week trip. We had this on the first night in Athens and thanks to Elena's tips we visited a few more restaurants in other places across Greece. We will definitely recommend everyone who visits Greece to signup with these guys. Thanks for the experience.
We had a private night tour for x5 people in Athens. Dimitra took us through some history of the square and interesting facts before the first stop. It was just what we were looking for, some local delicacies that we wouldn't have known to try, we even got to try some local spirits. Lots of historical information was provided as we walked between stops and all questions answered. Thank you Greeking.me
I booked a private Athens by Night Food Tour & Wine Tasting tour with my wife. Our guide Marina was lovely and showed us around neighborhoods we wouldn't have found on our own, told us stories of places and history of Athens. The food we got to taste was excellent and eclectic. Highly recommended!
Marina, our tour guide, was excellent and made us feel like we have an old friend taking us out. Excellent way to try local cuisine and drinks. Plenty of food and great variety, lots of local alcoholic drinks as well. Highly recommended.
I was lucky to take the Food Tour! They took into account (and asked me ahead of time) my preferences (vegetarian). During the tour, I discovered a lot of history and dishes I wouldn't have discovered otherwise.It was an amazing afternoon walking and eating our way through Athens' food history.
Greeking.me is definitely worth it! We did a private food tour of Athens! Eleni was our guide and she was warm, friendly, and so knowledgeable! We went to two fantastic restaurants and a wine bar. We got to eat real, authentic, local food and tried about 10-12 different dishes and 3 different wines along with a huge (and tasty) local cheese tray. I have food allergies, so I was glad we were able to pass that information along ahead of time.
This food tour was my favorite experience from my recent trip to Greece. The walking tour began in Syntagma Square and ended in Psirri. Most places we stopped had been operating in that location, specializing in one food item, for generations. The portions were extremely generous and there was never any pressure to purchase the products we were sampling. I highly and enthusiastically recommend this tour.
Amazing! We learned about Greek food and its connection to Greek history. We were so full, and even went back to a few of the restaurants later in our stay. Definitely do this tour if you're interested in food, culture, and history.
We took a private food tour in Athens for the family on our second day with Elena. The tour was absolutely Great! The food was way and beyond what we would expect it to be. Elena our guide was outstanding. Very informative and knowledgeable. It was our best decision to explore Athens culinary wise!
This was our favorite tour of all the trips we did in Europe. Our only suggestion is to skip breakfast before you do this tour. We were stuffed by the halfway point, but somehow managed to eat all the delicious food Elena showed us. Elena also followed up with us after the tour giving us a recap of what we ate and did, recommendations for places to eat for our remaining time in Athens (and Greece overall) and also gave us recipes to make some of the food we tried.
This was the HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP. We sampled local delicacies and drinks from cafes, restaurants, delis and street vendors as well as visiting local sites including athens' local market and several historical churches. Throughout our meanderings, our tour guides supplied us with a wealth of interesting facts surrounding the history of the food and the local area. The entire tour was immaculately planned.
We sent an inquiry for the "Athens for foodies" tour. We had a 4 hour walking tour in Athens, visited traditional bakeries, shops & taverns and numerous tastings of Greek food. Christina was a really knowledgeable foodie guide and it was an amazing tour, in general. Highly suggested. Thank you very much guys!
This was really a highlight of our trip in Athens! We walked around to places where most tourist don't go, and discover good traditional local food. Everything that we eat got an explanation about where it came from and how it is still a part of the Greek culture today. We ate sweets, cheeses, meat, veggies....and everything was really delicious! We all had a blast and felt that we saw another real part of Athens, its culture and cuisine!
We had a wonderful time in Athens thanks to greeking.me. We did a morning tour of the Acropolis followed by a food tour with Marialena. And on another evening, a tour through the hills and streets of Athens with Theodore that ended with a delicious meal of mezes in Psirri. Both Marialena and Theodore were extremely knowledgeable. It felt like we were exploring Athens with friends.
Nikos at Greeking.me was a godsend. They arrange late evening transportation from the airport to our hotel in downtown Athens. The next day Marina gave us the best city food tour we have ever encountered (and there have been many). The 4-hour walking food tour went by very quickly. Believe the reviews and avoid breakfast before taking the tour. This is a winner that should not be missed!
Greeking.me was amazing from the moment I first contacted them to the follow up email after our tour! Marina was fantastic on our food tour. She guided us around the streets of Athens, visiting nooks and crannies on a gastronomic romp! This was my second visit to Athens and I must admit with the help of Greeking Me I enjoyed this time around so much more!!
Our trip with Greeking.me was a 4-hour tour of tastings from more then a dozen non-touristy Greek venues. Everything we tasted was wonderful. We would have never been able to find such places on our own or have any idea of what various foods were or what we should try!!! So much fun and so tasty!!! I loved that it was a small group and walking through the Central Market! That was quite an experience! If you love sampling foods from another country & wouldn't have a clue how to go about it, then this is the tour for you!
We booked the Athens for foodies tour and it was the best part of our trip! Christina, our guide was very fun and took us to many different shops around the city. We tasted so much traditional food, savory and sweets and visited local places where we couldn't have found on our own. It was so fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see the real Athens and taste the delicious Greek food!
This is a great Greek food tour! It included around 10 different stop as places frequented mostly by locals. Some of these places had been in business since the early 1900s. The food was excellent and were were able to sample many different types of Greek food. Also, we went to the main market and had a chance to look around at where the locals before eating in small restaurant located in the market.
We enjoyed an amazing Athens food tour with Greeking.me last week. The tour lasted about 4,5 hours and we tasted many different Greek foods, visiting some traditional shops and restaurants that a visitor can't find. It was the highlight of our trip as we learned so many things about the Greek gastronomy. No need for lunch and highly recommended!
I can't say enough good things about this tour. We got to sample over a dozen delicious food items and beverages. And by sample, I don't mean one tiny bite per person. We had very generous servings at all of our stops. Anna and Nikos were perfect tour guides- extremely friendly, very knowledgeable about Athens history and Greek food.
We went on this food tour on a first full day in Athens. It was a great way to orientate ourselves in the city and to try local delicacies that visitors would never find on their own. Our knowledgable guide Marina was friendly, fun and full of information about food and local history. Highly recommended.
We looked at other Food Tours which seemed to be very large numbers, not personalized and more expensive.Well look no further, Greeking Me is absolutely fantastic.We were met by Elena, who had so much knowledge,knew so many local people it was great.The food Tour was excellent!Elena will listen to what you want and accommodate your food tastes.
The Athens for Foodies tour was incredible! Our guide, Elena, was so sweet, gentle, with a great understanding of Greek culture and food! She took us to several amazing spots where we enjoyed great food and great conversations with the shop owners. I learned so much about the different historic aspects of the locations we visited and the greek food culture.
My wife & I have traveled to almost 40 countries and done countless food tours and our food tour with Elena and Greeking.me was the BEST! Elena was AMAZING! She was patient and knowledgeable and taught us so so much about Greek History and the local food culture! We seriously felt like we were locals in Athens! It's been weeks since we took our tour and we STILL talk about it!
We had an amazing time with Xenia as our tour guide! She customized our tour based on what we wanted to see. We spent the whole day with Xenia from 9am-5pm. She was pleasant company and we had so much fun with her! We loved Athens and highly recommend using this company to show you Athens.
This was our first visit to Athens, and this tour was the perfect introduction to the City. Our guide, was wonderful. She had a degree in archeology, so her knowledge of the City and history was superb. She took us to spots that weren't your typical tourist spots while also working in the must see sights. If you are looking for a great tour of Athens that isn't so touristy, this is it.
I chose Greeking.me after finding it on Google and was instantly impressed with the responsive informative responses to my questions. When we finally started the tour was even better than expected. the guide was friendly, knowledgeable, managed our time perfectly, gave us choices and really covered all of our needs completely.
We decided to take a long weekend trip to Athens and turned to Greeking.me. In Athens we have already been expected at the airport by a reputable driver. The vehicle was a Mercedes, extremely clean and well maintained. We also booked a guide, who spoke first-class German. She not only gave us knowledge and data, but she also told us very exciting.Thanks to the Greeking.me-Team.
Thank you so much for your devoted assistance with planning our team building’s activities. Both of the events were perfectly organized and we had an amazing time. The feedback from the Scavenger Hunt has been super positive. We are still smiling from the breathtaking views during the hunt! Your team did a wonderful job!
After helping us to find the right kind of event, Greeking.me organised a stunning Athens Scavenger Hunt throughout all of central Athens for us. It was real fun to discover the city with several small groups, including lots of action and lovely people! I can only recommend this agency and know that it will be my first address in Athens.
We thank you for offering a tour that explores Greek history and food! We have not seen this option in our travels and we think you are leading the way with this. During the tour Elena kept notes of our questions and promised to send a follow up email with specific recommendations, which she did immediately giving us further information.
Evita as our guide was an excellent guide for families, able to engage with school-aged kids and their parents! Greeking.me made all the difference between enjoying and learning about the sights we visited, versus just looking at things in a rush because the kids were cranky. We will certainly contact greeking.me again if we return to Greece!
Fantastic organization. Informative, helpful, and accommodating in arranging three tours for our family of five. The day trip to Delfi with Marialena was amazing. She's a fantastic guide and explained the sites we visited. Lunch recommendation was pretty good too. Great day, great guide, and great experience for our family.Thank you Nikos! Thank you Greeking.me
Our guide was very knowledgeable a extremely friendly. It was very moving to see all the places you read about in ancient literature. After our tour we went to a very nice restaurant with sea view where we recovered from climbing up all the way to see the unique stadion of Delphi. In all a wonderful day which I would recommend to anyone interested in art, history or archaeology or even just beautiful landscapes.
Thank goodness I found Greeking.me. Needless to say it was better than I had anticipated especially as Evita was my tour guide. Evita was especially knowledgeable not only about modern Greek culture but also recounted in fascinating detail relavent Greek history and incredible mythology stories. The food and drinks part is simply to die for. Highly recommended and such a refreshing experience from start to finish.
We had set up a tour that started with being met in our hotel in Plaka and then go to a beautiful greek shop where we were served a lovely greek breakfast. After a great meal and sincere conversations, we met Marialena who then took us on a fascinating tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. The Acropolis and Museum, coupled with modern history, and even where all the shade on the Acropolis is. We would highly recommend this service and can't imagine you will find a better option.
Thank you so much for providing such an accommodating and flexible tour for our family! We had a great time- the breakfast was excellent with such delicious and beautifully presented local foods. The tour to the Acropolis and the museum were so thorough and detailed. Thank you to Eleni and Marilena for their hospitality and friendliness. Our children loved them both and they were very good with our kids. Definitely will recommend your service :)
You must do this tour. Athina is an incredible guide. In love with her country and with all the good foods that you can find in Crete. Absolutely no need to take a breakfast before. You will eat really well and with all the flavors. I was expecting a good experience and it was close to a dream!
Our guide, Athina, was an amazing foodies guide! Not only did she take us to those unique places promised by you, she also made sure we have no allergies, what kind of food we're interested in, etc. We visited small places in which only local ingredients are being used, such as spices, herbs and honey and got small and sweet gifts from those places.
Communication with Dimitra was excellent and they can cater the tour for food allergies, preferences or perceived "intolerances". We were met at the arranged time and we then embarked on a tour of honey shops, herbalist, pastry shops, taverna and seafood restaurants. Our guides were very informative about the food and Heraklion in general. Their English was perfect. We cannot recommend enough!
Every establishment that we entered for the tour greeted us warmly and truly made us feel special. We learned the importance of pure and fresh ingredients and that the herbs and grasses used for food and teas are gathered fresh in the wilder areas of Crete. Athina, our guide, is passionate about sharing her knowledge about food and Crete!
This food tour was by far the best we've ever been on. Athina was bright,articulate and very passionate about the food and the restaurants we visited.We cannot compliment her and your company highly enough for this tour. It made our visit to this beautiful island memorable. Athina has made us want to come back for a longer visit Many thanks.
We had a wonderful time in Athens thanks to greeking.me. They were able to personalize the tours to fit our desires, and came up with reasonable suggestions so that we could stay within our budget as a young couple. We did a tour through the hills and streets of Athens and our guide was extremely knowledgeable (archaeologist), but also so friendly and casual. It felt like we were visiting Athens with friends. Thank you so much!
What a great tour! It was very informative and it was really nice to actually see organic living first hand. They teach you about their olive trees, different qualities of olive oil and many more. I would definitely do another Greeking.me tour! Excellent quality, service and very informative.
Nikos organized the best Greek Mythology Tour for us and our grandson. He assigned the perfect tour guide for us and Marialena was fantastic. My grandson had learned about the Greek gods from reading Percy Jackson books and was thrilled with her. We, definitely, would recommend this company to anyone wanting to do private tours.
My wife & I did this activity on and it was the highlight of our trip! This wan't a tourist show. This was an actual dance class and it was fantastic! The teacher was amazing and we had a great time. If you want an authentic Greek experience this is the way to do it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Athens!
It was something that i will never forget. It was unique and extremely fun. Since it was only my wife and I, it felt like we were getting a private lesson from one of the most dedicated Greek Dancer ever. She had the patience of a saint and the entire experience made for a perfect ending of our trip!
Oh my gosh ... what to say?? We just returned from a fantastic trip to Greece and I wanted to thank your team at Greeking Me for putting together a wonderful experience for us - My Inner Zorba!! The dance class was so much fun and we couldn't stop laughing and dancing to the beat!! All in all, a memorable night and something I would highly recommend and would do this again!. Opa!
We did the Greek folk dance class and dinner with Elena in Athens, and we had a great time! The class was in an outdoor dance theater which was really special. The teachers were very nice and the dance isn't too hard to learn. The food after was good too. Elena was SO nice and knowledgable and helpful!!
While hosting some friends in Athens we decided to try something new but traditional. The activity took place in beautiful building in Plaka, which is an actual Greek Dance Theater. It was so much fun!!! After the lesson we've been taken for a dinner, delicious. Everything was just great, I can highly recommend Greeking me for anyone who wants to discover Athens in a different way.
We had so much fun and got a workout in! The dances were pretty easy to learn and the steps are repetitive so it's easy to catch on. Anna and Nick joined us in the lessons. Our dance lessons were followed by a traditional Greek dinner with Anna and Nick. I didn't know until we got to the restaurant that they were having dinner with us. If we ever go back to Greece, we are definitely booking a tour with them again.
I enjoyed the folk dance lesson and dinner very much! The teachers were very encouraging. This activity would be apropriate for most any age and is family friendly. The Greeking.me group stands out because the owners are so personal and will go the extra mile to make you feel welcome.
My wife and I planned a trip to Greece for our honeymoon and this dance tour was the best. We learned traditional dance moves and their respective history that was really interesting. Afterwards, we headed up to a local restaurant that had a great view and a live band while we ate traditional Greek food. I wish we knew of Greeking.me prior, as I would have booked every tour from them during our stay in Greece!
This was easily the best thing we did in our vacations in Greece. We had an interesting walk, folk dance lessons, a wonderful meal, and great conversation. Our lessons were given by Dora Stratou, a Greek Dance Theater instructor in their Dance studio. The dance lesson lasted about 1 hour, and with only two of us, we worked up a a sweat. This would be a perfect event for families.
The Zorba in Me experience was JUST what I had hoped for! Great dancing instructions that taught me regional variations and new dances. A walking tour near the Acropolis took us to back streets I didn't know existed and the perfect view of Athens...what a bonus. And dinner with our new dancing friends was amazing! Classic Greek dishes made to perfection (as a Greek American...I wouldn't say it if the restaurant wasn't perfect)! One of our highlights in Athens!
My vote: Book this tour. I hope you get Eleni. You will not regret a second of it. This goes down as one of our most favourite memories of Athens.
When you’ve finally pulled the trigger and booked your dream destination to spend your much-needed vacations on, the last thing you want to do is return back home only to realize that you didn’t explore its full potential and that you didn’t get to see and experience all you could have! Rid yourself of that possibility by reading below all the top sites of Crete. Get a well-rounded idea of what you must not miss during your visit to the biggest Greek island and ensure your vacations in Crete will be your most memorable yet.
