Reviews

  • We had fun and we learn some more about the city, from different points of view. The guide was funny, enthusiastic and well prepared. The food was typical but not greek- "main stream". It is a wonderful choice!

  • Had an amazing time with Eleni. She was very knowledgeable and kind. We lrarned so much about the historical sights as well as the city. My boyfriend and I are in our 20s and she was able to give amazing suggestions for bars that we would never found otherwise.

  • I visited Greece for the first time with a group of friends and wanted to explore Athens. We booked the Athens Night Tour with Greeking.me and were accompanied by their finest archaeologist guide, Eleni, who was extremely knowledgeable and had a pleasant personality.

  • So I have always been a little skeptical of tours. I arrived on a five week vacation by myself and decided why not let's do a tour it will force me to be productive on my first night in Athens.
