It was amazing! Our children, ages 12 and 9, are interested in Greek mythology, so we did custom tours at major sites, including the Acropolis. Every guide brought the sites to life for my kids, keeping them entertained! There is not a thing I would have wanted done differently. I got to relax letting someone else do all the work.
Our guide was an invaluable part of our experience. Marilena brought the monuments to life with stories of mythology and daily life in Ancient Greece. She had iPads that you could point at sites and they would show you what they would have looked like in antiquity. Our group was mixed in background knowledge, but Marilena kept everyone engaged the entire time. I’d strongly recommend her to anyone. She also recommended amazing local restaurants, came to dinner with us and helped us choose food and wine. She's such a wealth of local knowledge. . I feel like I truly made a friend.
Even though the reviews for Greeking.me were great I was still a little nervous about booking our trip through them. My wife and I were traveling with two 11 year olds and my mother and I wanted a trip that would keep all of us interested. We had great service from the minute we landed in Athens. Our drivers were great, our tour guides were amazing! We learned so much and had great fun doing it. I really can't say enough good things about our trip and about Greeking.me!
