Tour Highlights

With our culinary package, we give you a golden opportunity to gain a rare insight into the gastronomical traditions of our country, far beyond the usual fare trotted out every year on the well-beaten tourist trail. Our trip is a foray into the history, mythology and gastronomy wealth of Greece supported by our team who are with you every step of the way to make sure your needs are catered for. From travel experts to historians, professional chefs to vintners to the elders of villages who have no fancy training yet produce dishes that any Michelin star chef would have a tough time emulating- this is the one and only journey to take if, like us, you are a passionate foodie with a healthy penchant for hedonism!

  • A perfect package for foodies, this journey will take you from the ancient streets of Athens to the spectacular Peloponnese and ending in the culinary capital of Greece- Crete
  • Enjoy a private guided tour of the archaeological sites of the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Ancient Corinth, Ancient Messene, Mycenae, the castle town of Mystras, Knossos Palace and the romantic city of Nafplio.
  • Learn about various traditional and modern Greek dishes, while exploring the wide variety of available produce.
  • You will be joined by expert guides, instructed by professional chefs, welcomed by accomplished vintners and taste the skill and devotion of real artisans.
  • Imbide in wonderful Greek wines from Nemea wineries in the Peloponnese region of Greece!
  • Let us take care of the itinerary. Our team research and personally vet each of the places we take you to so that we show you the very best authentic places that Greece has to offer.


Beginning in Athens, taking you right across the majestic Peloponnese and ending in the ravishingly beautiful island of Crete our 12 days culinary odyssey across Greece immerses you in the flavours of the Mediterranean which are revered the world over for their long-term health benefits yet undeniably good taste. Cleverly combined with historic sites ( Ancient Corinth, the Acropolis, Ancient Mycenae, the Palace of Knossosto name but a few) is our itinerary bursting with cooking classes, demonstrations, tasting tours and an array of foodie experiences

Discover the sweet aromas of fir tree honey of Arcadia, the use of “petimezi” in Nemea, the rich cheeses of Crete, the infamous Kalamata olives and of course Greece’s most beloved spirits in Italianate Nafplio. Not just a trip based on tradition, see the efforts of those vying to provide a sustainable future as you explore an agrotourism collective in Arcadia and take in the spectacular scenery that Greece has to offer with plenty of opportunities to hike, swim, stroll and relax. Our itinerary takes you to tucked away sites that are truly spectacular such as the Temple of Apollo Epikourios and the Church of Agia Theodora and an opportunity to wander amongst the animals at a small farm in the countryside. From the Parthenon to the stalagmite caves of Kapsia, through mountains, forests, along coastlines and pristine beaches join us on a journey to the very heart and soul of culinary Greece.

  • Greeking.me planned our entire 2 week vacation to Greece and it was amazing,our children ages 12 and 9 were kept entertained and interested all the time!We did custom tours at major sites, including the Acropolis, Temple of Poseidon, Delphi, Olympia, Ancient Corinith, Epidarus. A big surprise hit was the food tour in Athens which was fascinating and delicious, the best way to learn about a new city. There is honestly not a thing about the trip that they planned for us that I would have wanted done differently!

  • If you are looking for a reliable tour company who can provide quality, customized small group and private tours, then look no farther. My husband and I were planning a trip to Greece and after reading reviews decided to take a chance on this company; we cannot say enough good things about them! Maria was our contact person and was always polite and patient with us. She answered all our questions and provided us with a wonderful itinerary that included several private guided tours in Athens, Meteora, Delphi, Olympia, Nefplio, and Santorini. Once we were in Greece, everything worked like clockwork. Our drivers were always on time, polite, and spoke very good English We experienced historical tours of ancient ruins, food tours, and wine tours. All of our tour guides were very knowledgeable (many had degrees in archeology) and provided us with a high-quality experience. We highly recommend Greeking.me. You will not be disappointed!

  • We just returned from 10 days in Greece and honestly this was the best trip in my life! Nikos arranged the ideal itinerary, making an excellent selection of hotels and villas for our stay and assigning us the best guides. He also arranged for us private transfers from the airport and from place to place, and also skip the line tickets for the sites, so we did spend time at queues. Everything was going like clockwork, and every day we explored more and more of this amazing country. Communication and customer support exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend this excellent company. Thank you for everything

  • We spent an amazing 10 days touring Athens and the Peloponnese with our driver, Andreas and guide, Penelope with Greeking.Me tours. Katerina helped us plan our custom, private ‘foodie’ tour for 4 adults and a teenager. She was always quick to respond to our many questions and helped us to create our perfect first visit to Greece. From our first night, Greeking.Me, made us feel part of their family with a wonderful Welcome dinner, with Katerina, Nikos and Anna, where we helped cook a delicious Greek meal. This is when our original plans changed, coronavirus had shut down the archeological sites and closed restaurants and many other businesses....not to worry, Penelope and the rest of the Greeking.Me team went above and beyond to find alternatives to what we had planned each day.... We can’t say enough wonderful things about our guide, Penelope, she is an archeologist with an amazing knowledge and love of Greek history... So to close this long review, we highly recommend Greeking.Me, whether it’s for a day tour or wonderful multi-day adventure and when we return to complete our missed visit to Meteora we will be reaching out to them (fingers crossed, Penelope is available to be our guide!).
