Evita as our guide was an excellent guide for families, able to engage with school-aged kids and their parents! Greeking.me made all the difference between enjoying and learning about the sights we visited, versus just looking at things in a rush because the kids were cranky. We will certainly contact greeking.me again if we return to Greece!
Fantastic organization. Informative, helpful, and accommodating in arranging three tours for our family of five. The day trip to Delfi with Marialena was amazing. She's a fantastic guide and explained the sites we visited. Lunch recommendation was pretty good too. Great day, great guide, and great experience for our family.Thank you Nikos! Thank you Greeking.me
Our guide was very knowledgeable a extremely friendly. It was very moving to see all the places you read about in ancient literature. After our tour we went to a very nice restaurant with sea view where we recovered from climbing up all the way to see the unique stadion of Delphi. In all a wonderful day which I would recommend to anyone interested in art, history or archaeology or even just beautiful landscapes.
The trip to Delphi was the first trip and it didn’t disappoint. Andrew picked us up on time and gave us all the information we needed to have a great day exploring the Temple of Apollo. He was right there at the entrance to the museum when we were ready to go, and took us safely back to our hotel.
Greeking.me did a truly wonderful job! Marialena gave us a fabulous introduction to Athens on our first day ... an early start (top idea!), excellent historical and archaeological overview tour with great restaurant ideas as well! After our week long trip to the islands, Marialena also took us to Delphi, another spectacular day filled with information, beautiful views and a lovely lunch. All gorgeous thank you! Both our drivers (Andreas for the long trip) were great to travel with, pleasant company and absolutely punctual!
