From here on in it’s time for you to escape from the outside world and join us on a journey in time to the days of Byzantine rule and the rituals of Orthodox Greece.

  • Our family of 14 visited, Meteora, Rhodes and Athens in mid June. We were guided through most of it by Greeking.me. The trip was fantastic! Christina was amazing. She was always watching over us during the planning and while we were in Greece. There were very few mistakes on the trip and all of those happened when I did not involve Christina. Moreover, I was amazed at the cost. It really was not that much more than if I had done it all myself. And if I did it all myself I would have made so many mistakes and we would have been lost so many times. Thanks to Christina, Eva and all the others at Greeking me. You turned a great trip into the best of our lifetime, so far.
