  • Eva was a great guide and the dancing and food was very good! The dance instructors were professional and the surrounding was perfect.

  • 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 were 6 friends visiting Athens and one of the highlights was the dancing lessons provided by greeking.me. Ana was a wonderful guide and I can only recommend both dance and dinner, the latter with a magnificent view of the Acropolis.

  • 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!

  • Thank you for a memorable evening. The dance lesson was great, dinner sumptuous and conversation, an unanticipated pleasure.

  • 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.

  • We were 10 people, and we learned how to dance the Greek way!So fun, and the teacher was great.The guide was awesome, she met us at Acropolis Metro station, and walked us to the place we danced. I could describe her as a walking «history book».Definitely reccomend it!!

  • 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!
