  • If you are planning to visit the Acropolis with young children and you are hesitant, I beg you to reconsider!

  • Had we not taken the full day tour, we would not learned about interesting facts in the Acropolis and the different districts of Athens. The tour gave us a very good perspective and overview of Athens so much so that we were walking to our destinations on a daily basis. We felt like we were locals! I wholeheartedly recommend booking a tour with Greeking.me.

  • We did a private family tour of the Acropolis, museum, and Agora. The email communication from the company during booking process was superb. This company does a great job with children. Our guide was impressive, Eva. She was an archeologist full of knowledge. We loved it.

  • We were delighted with our tour of the Acropolis and with our guide, Evita. After being disappointed a the “official” guides we hired at two other sites we turned to your company. We have two boys age 11 and 14 and we wanted a guide that would engage them and us adults too. Evita was fun, interesting, and informative. They boys (and my wife) rated her a 10 out of 10. Our trip to the Acropolis created memories that will last for ever. Thank you for your excellent service.

  • We did three tours with Greeking Me, worried whether we had made the right decision to spend so much time on tour. We are usually self directed travellers but with two budding Percy Jackson-o-philes it seemed a good investment in getting the most out of Athens. Making a tour of the Acropolis in 37 degree heat fascinating, is testament to the quality of the experience. Our kids were mesmerised and so were we. The Ipads add a whole new dimension to the experience, bringing the history alive.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our tours - we did the Athens Walking Tour, Mythological Tour and both the Acropolis and Archaeological Museums. Our tour guides were very informative, easily bringing the city and sites to life. We didn't feel rushed with the guides who were great with our children. I'm always a little anxious when booking something online but I shouldn't have been as the service and advice received was excellent. Would highly recommend using Greeking.Me and will do so when next in Athens. Thanks!
