  • My son and I did the all day tour in Athens. Our guide, Xenia was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable without giving us an information overload. We really enjoyed it. Would recommend, seeing the sights without the history wouldn't have done them justice.

    - Kimberly W
  • Had a wonderful day tour with Evita from Greeking.me. She guided us through the Acropolis and Parthenon, Acropolis Museum, Plaka District, Changing of the guards and more. She worked hard at keeping my 13 year old engaged and discussing Greek mythology with my 16 and 18 year old which they really enjoyed.

    - B_77
  • This tour was a great way to get a quick insight into the city, complete with lots of delicious food. Greeking.me were really responsive and very friendly to deal with. Elena, my guide, was lovely, friendly and very knowledgable about the city, Greece, the food and history. I really enjoyed myself and would definitely recommend this tour.

  • This was an extremely worthwhile experience as you really get to know the different neighborhoods of Athens. Anastasia our guide studied archaeology at university so needless to say was very knowledgeable in regard to the city's ancient history; but she also led us expertly through the modern Athens.

    - Anna A
  • Xenia, our guide, was a perfect match for us, with all her expertise. We spent a perfect day starting with the Acropolis & ancient Agora in the morning, with a very good lunch and an afternoon stroll. This is a hearty recommendation to anyone who wishes to get to know Athens at first hand.

    - Sina D
  • While in Athens in May 2018, we contracted with Greeking.me for two transfers and two tours. We were picked up at the airport and transported to our hotel, then later transferred from our hotel to our ship. The drivers were on time, very professional. Our guide was Marialena, who was equally wonderful. I highly recommend booking tours/transfers through Greeking.me.

    - Joyce H
  • I highly recommend a Greeking.me tour if you are visiting Athens for the first time and are overwhelmed with where to begin to appreciate the ancient and modern culture of Athens. My day-long tour with Xenia introduced me not only to the treasures of the Acropolis, the Parthenon Museum, and other ancient sites around it. I really enjoyed this tour and recommend it very highly, it is worth every penny.

    - Claudia M
  • Xenia is the best! So smart! So cool! What a great company!

    - CarlosL
  • When I was at the top of the Acropolis, I couldn't believe I climbed all that way. Our guide, Alexandra, was very attentive. She is a wonderful teacher, and she is very attuned to my need to progress slowly. The marble on the walking surfaces is very slippery. She watched us all, carefully. What an experience!

    - Mary Ann S
  • Eva was EXCELLENT. She showed us everything we wished to see in Athens and went over the set tour time for 2 hours. Definitely recommended.
