  • Elena is AMAZING. She is a gracious host who shared her expertise about the food, wine, and Athens along a great tour of hidden gems, unique dishes, Greek wines and fun side streets that we would never have experienced without her. We highly recommend Greeking.me who were very flexible in scheduling our tours (we also booked a sunset Santorini cruise that was first class through them) and request Elena - she's the best!!

  • We arranged for two custom tours while in Athens through Greeking.me. We had a food and culture tour at night with Elena, who was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable about Greek food and wine, culture, and history. Immediately following our 4-hour tour, she emailed us with recipes of food we had sampled as well as other valuable information.

  • We met Elena for the evening and she took us to so many different places to try the local cuisine, it was completely unforgettable and we tried so many delicious dishes (and wine)! It was a private tour and definitely the highlight of our stay in Athens. If you are a foodie and want to try different, local dishes, do not hesitate to book it! Elena was a great guide, very fun to spend the evening with and very well prepared to handle our questions about local culture. Highly recommend this tour! Be prepared to eat a lot!

  • Elena was our guide and she was excellent. Full of good information and held our interest throughout the tour. I recommend going on a tour the first day you arrive, then you have a real feel for the city during your visit. Elena’s English was perfect which was good because our Greek isn’t! She also sent us recipes for some of the dishes we tried and loved on our tour! Thanks Alena you’re a star!

  • We had a great time, learnt a lot about Greek cuisine, culture & history & thought the tour was great value. Tiana was a great guide and we liked how she would check with the chef what was best and fresh on the day. We highly recommend this tour.

  • The tour was amazing. The guide know a lot of the greek culture and the history. The food was incredible. Definitly visit 'to kousouváki', this was grandmothers cooking at its best.

  • We had just arrived in Athens & with jet lag, we weren’t in any shape to make a dinner decision... so we decided to sign up for this walking food tour! Elena gave us the lay of the land by taking us to 4 different stops (2 for food, one wine + cheese, one baklava), during which we passed many major points of interest & got info on each neighborhood. We also got tips on local dinning etiquette & also more places to continue the culinary adventure. The food was great at each of the places—one a little more upscale & the other, had a more home-cooked feel. Everything we sampled was amazing & we left ready for a good night’s sleep with a full belly.

  • A great food and wine tour requires the presence of a few things. The first is key: a positive, outgoing attitude exuded by all persons involved. The second is mandatory: a healthy portion of interesting, delicious, and authentic points of interest. The third is paramount: a guide with the knowledge, skill, and personality to facilitate an incredible experience. This tour had all three of these requirements in spades, hence my strong assurance that you will have an incredible time. To my third point, our guide, Eleni, was F$%^**@ fantastic. Her personality is impeccable. My girlfriend and I wished she would be friends with us the entire evening. Additionally, her English is incredible and her knowledge of the city is seemingly unmatched. Eleni, if you're reading this, THANK YOU. Melanie and I had an absolute ball and we learned so much.

  • My wife and 2 of our best friends booked the Private Athens for foodies tour. Our guide Tiama was the perfect host and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There was more than enough food that we were unable to finish everything at each stop (and I am a big eater), there was variety of food/drinks and a willingness to accommodate any culinary requests (i.e. vegetarian). Note: Nobody needed a meal after this tour!
