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!
My vote: Book this tour. I hope you get Eleni. You will not regret a second of it. This goes down as one of our most favourite memories of Athens.
My friend and I took “The Zorba inside me” class with dancing and traditional Greek meal. We were met at the assigned spot by Penelope our guide who stayed with us throughout the evening. She was prompt, professional and provided a lot of information about the food culture in Athens. She was also a great conversationalist at dinner! The first stop of the evening was the Greek dancing class. Our teacher was fantastic. He (I can’t remember his name) demonstrated all the dances well, and kept the mood light and enjoyable (even if we had a hard time catching on). Dinner was fantastic. Great atmosphere! Great food! Great company!
Eleni was fabulous and full of information as we walked to our dance lesson and then again to dinner. The dance lesson was fantastic and that’s due, in part, to the other two fun couples who were in the group. Come prepared to move as at one point we likened it to Greek Zumba! Very fun and I hope I remember everything we learned, not only about dance but also about where the dances came from, so it’s a miniature history lesson (which gives you a moment to have a sip of water between dances!) Food choices at dinner were great, a nice variety and intro to Greek dishes if you haven’t already had that experience on your own.
The Zorba Inside Me experience was excellent. I was very pleasantly surprised that the dance lesson was in the famous Dora Stratou Studios and the instructor Marina was very good. The host/guide Tiama was outstanding. She assisted in an enthusiastic and knowledgeable fashion during the dance lesson. She was equally enthusiastic and knowledgeable during a fascinating tour of an area of the Plaka which I had never seen before (and I have visited the Plaka many times) and she was then an excellent host over dinner.
I am not a dancer. I’ve never been a dancer and never will be. When my wife insisted we book this dance class, I played along as a good sport. I didn’t expect to enjoy it, and yet that’s exactly what happened. Trust me when I say: if I can dance like a Greek, so can you. Our instructor Marina taught us some very simple dance moves that progressed in difficulty as we went along. Her assistant Tiana could not have been more pleasant. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys having a fun time — and who doesn’t?

We had a group of 8 people and the dance instructor was very good and took her time with us. When we "miss" stepped we all laughted. I recommend this for everyone visiting Greece. Everyone in our group had positive comments on the evening The dinner was a small but great place to eat with a live Greek band
It has been a very nice experience to enjoy the different tours they have offered us and especially the Greek dance lesson in Athens; we fully enjoyed them and spent very nice moments. We fully recommend their tours;
