Trip Advisor
My wife & I did this activity on and it was the highlight of our trip! This wan't a tourist show. This was an actual dance class and it was fantastic! The teacher was amazing and we had a great time. If you want an authentic Greek experience this is the way to do it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Athens!

It was a wonderful experience, very energetic and we learned so much about the dances. Not only did we learn the dances but we learned to understand how the dances worked. It was a real dance class, not just a tourist show- the teacher was excellent. And we had a lovely dinner afterwards- Highly recommend.
It was something that i will never forget. It was unique and extremely fun. Since it was only my wife and I, it felt like we were getting a private lesson from one of the most dedicated Greek Dancer ever. She had the patience of a saint and the entire experience made for a perfect ending of our trip!
In a country that can sometimes feel very disorganized, Greeking was easy to work with and very friendly. We had them customize a tour involving greek dancing followed by a spirits tasting in Athens and I have to say, this was probably the best thing we did in Athens.
Oh my gosh ... what to say?? We just returned from a fantastic trip to Greece and I wanted to thank your team at Greeking Me for putting together a wonderful experience for us - My Inner Zorba!! The dance class was so much fun and we couldn't stop laughing and dancing to the beat!! All in all, a memorable night and something I would highly recommend and would do this again!. Opa!

We did the Greek folk dance class and dinner with Elena in Athens, and we had a great time! The class was in an outdoor dance theater which was really special. The teachers were very nice and the dance isn't too hard to learn. The food after was good too. Elena was SO nice and knowledgable and helpful!!

Everything was perfect. The dance class was amazing. My students loved it :)) EVA is a brilliant guide. I am so happy I booked this dance class activity. We had so much fun in the tavern as well. I definately suggest everyone to have this experience.
Eva was a great guide and the dancing and food was very good! The dance instructors were professional and the surrounding was perfect.
While hosting some friends in Athens we decided to try something new but traditional. The activity took place in beautiful building in Plaka, which is an actual Greek Dance Theater. It was so much fun!!! After the lesson we've been taken for a dinner, delicious. Everything was just great, I can highly recommend Greeking me for anyone who wants to discover Athens in a different way.
We were 6 friends visiting Athens and one of the highlights was the dancing lessons provided by greeking.me. Ana was a wonderful guide and I can only recommend both dance and dinner, the latter with a magnificent view of the Acropolis.
We had so much fun and got a workout in! The dances were pretty easy to learn and the steps are repetitive so it's easy to catch on. Anna and Nick joined us in the lessons. Our dance lessons were followed by a traditional Greek dinner with Anna and Nick. I didn't know until we got to the restaurant that they were having dinner with us. If we ever go back to Greece, we are definitely booking a tour with them again.

I enjoyed the folk dance lesson and dinner very much! The teachers were very encouraging. This activity would be apropriate for most any age and is family friendly. The Greeking.me group stands out because the owners are so personal and will go the extra mile to make you feel welcome.

My wife and I planned a trip to Greece for our honeymoon and this dance tour was the best. We learned traditional dance moves and their respective history that was really interesting. Afterwards, we headed up to a local restaurant that had a great view and a live band while we ate traditional Greek food. I wish we knew of Greeking.me prior, as I would have booked every tour from them during our stay in Greece!
Thank you for a memorable evening. The dance lesson was great, dinner sumptuous and conversation, an unanticipated pleasure.

This was easily the best thing we did in our vacations in Greece. We had an interesting walk, folk dance lessons, a wonderful meal, and great conversation. Our lessons were given by Dora Stratou, a Greek Dance Theater instructor in their Dance studio. The dance lesson lasted about 1 hour, and with only two of us, we worked up a a sweat. This would be a perfect event for families.
We were 10 people, and we learned how to dance the Greek way!So fun, and the teacher was great.The guide was awesome, she met us at Acropolis Metro station, and walked us to the place we danced. I could describe her as a walking «history book».Definitely reccomend it!!
The Zorba in Me experience was JUST what I had hoped for! Great dancing instructions that taught me regional variations and new dances. A walking tour near the Acropolis took us to back streets I didn't know existed and the perfect view of Athens...what a bonus. And dinner with our new dancing friends was amazing! Classic Greek dishes made to perfection (as a Greek American...I wouldn't say it if the restaurant wasn't perfect)! One of our highlights in Athens!
My vote: Book this tour. I hope you get Eleni. You will not regret a second of it. This goes down as one of our most favourite memories of Athens.

My friend and I took “The Zorba inside me” class with dancing and traditional Greek meal. We were met at the assigned spot by Penelope our guide who stayed with us throughout the evening. She was prompt, professional and provided a lot of information about the food culture in Athens. She was also a great conversationalist at dinner! The first stop of the evening was the Greek dancing class. Our teacher was fantastic. He (I can’t remember his name) demonstrated all the dances well, and kept the mood light and enjoyable (even if we had a hard time catching on). Dinner was fantastic. Great atmosphere! Great food! Great company!
Eleni was fabulous and full of information as we walked to our dance lesson and then again to dinner. The dance lesson was fantastic and that’s due, in part, to the other two fun couples who were in the group. Come prepared to move as at one point we likened it to Greek Zumba! Very fun and I hope I remember everything we learned, not only about dance but also about where the dances came from, so it’s a miniature history lesson (which gives you a moment to have a sip of water between dances!) Food choices at dinner were great, a nice variety and intro to Greek dishes if you haven’t already had that experience on your own.
The Zorba Inside Me experience was excellent. I was very pleasantly surprised that the dance lesson was in the famous Dora Stratou Studios and the instructor Marina was very good. The host/guide Tiama was outstanding. She assisted in an enthusiastic and knowledgeable fashion during the dance lesson. She was equally enthusiastic and knowledgeable during a fascinating tour of an area of the Plaka which I had never seen before (and I have visited the Plaka many times) and she was then an excellent host over dinner.
I am not a dancer. I’ve never been a dancer and never will be. When my wife insisted we book this dance class, I played along as a good sport. I didn’t expect to enjoy it, and yet that’s exactly what happened. Trust me when I say: if I can dance like a Greek, so can you. Our instructor Marina taught us some very simple dance moves that progressed in difficulty as we went along. Her assistant Tiana could not have been more pleasant. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys having a fun time — and who doesn’t?

We had a group of 8 people and the dance instructor was very good and took her time with us. When we "miss" stepped we all laughted. I recommend this for everyone visiting Greece. Everyone in our group had positive comments on the evening The dinner was a small but great place to eat with a live Greek band
It has been a very nice experience to enjoy the different tours they have offered us and especially the Greek dance lesson in Athens; we fully enjoyed them and spent very nice moments. We fully recommend their tours;
