  • It was a very memorable tour and visit perhaps the highlight of our holiday. The guide was fun, knowledgeable and very informative. She pitched the information just right and made the history fascinating and accessible. Highly recommended

  • Our visit to the Acropolis would not have been as easy or as interesting without Greeting.me. Correspondence to organize the tour was efficient and we were met as promised, by our guide Evita. From there began a fascinating 2 hour tour of the Acropolis which felt more like an afternoon stroll with a friend. Thank you for everything!

  • I joined a private Acropolis tour with Greeking.me. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining - and she even brought along with her 3D print outs, so I could experience how many of the old buildings looked back then. Although it was a 4 hour trip, time passed quickly and it felt more like walking with a friend who knows everything about Ancient Greek than an organised tour. Highly recommended.

  • Our guide was incredible, the kids were amazed with the way she presented the history...it was like a story for them and we all really enjoyed it. The iPad program made it all come alive.

  • We had a wonderful day with the guide called Anastasia. She was very personable and her knowledge was second to none. We would readily recommend your service to our friends who have the good fortune to visit your beautiful city. Thank you.

  • ‘Dafni’ - American spelling! - was our wonderful guide. She had our 19yo and 16yo completely engaged - as were we! - and all the stories were fascinating. Her knowledge of the history was of course superb - and her enthusiasm infectious.
