Everything was perfect; Our driver, Petros, our guide, Marilena and of course the team at the office who arranged all the details. Thank you so much for an amazing trip to Peloponnese!
I am so glad our family of 5 booked tours with GreekingMe!! We did 4 private tours, 4 days in a row. I was worried we may have overbooked ourselves but each tour was a unique and memorable experience. Our guide, Eva, was very knowledgable and engaging, even keeping our 10 year old boys interested. She thoroughly explained the significance, history and mythology of each site. As an added bonus, Eva knew the best spots for great family photos! We had an amazing vacation in Greece thanks to Eva and GreekingMe.
I found out about Greeking Me when I was looking to book a cooking class for myself and 8 other travel guests. After I reached out to them not only did they help me by booking a wonderful cooking class in Tolo. I ended up booking a large van from Athens to Nafplio with a stop at the Corinth Canal and a guide rode along with us for a tour of Mycane. We were dropped off in Nafplio but not before our guide found us a wonderful place for lunch and also joined us. We booked another transfer from Nafplio to Ermioni with a stop at Epidaurus with another guided tour which was great as well. Both of the drivers were excellent and we felt very comfortable and safe. I can't speak highly enough about Greeking Me they literally helped me plan my trip from start to finish. Offering advice on the ferries and any question I had even though it wouldn't be benefiting them. You can not go wrong using Greeking Me. I most certainly will when I return to Greece.
