It was a fantastic tour. Our guide obviously loved what he does. He was so passionate about The Acropolis and It resonated. It was a lot of information to take in, but was very enjoyable. He spoke excellent English.

Acropolis Skip the Line Afternoon Walking Tour
What a great way to see this beautiful monument! The afternoon tour was fantastic because it was a lot less crowded. Our guide, Dimitri, is a history professor and a wonderful storyteller; please ask for him! They provide you with water and a snack before you go, which was an unexpected and thoughtful surprise. We learned so much about not only The Acropolis, but also about the history surrounding it. Highly recommend it!

Best night of our visit to Athens
If you’re thinking of taking this cooking class, think no more: you HAVE to take this class! Stam was our instructor. He was fun, personable, intelligent, and helpful. He helped us learn prepare to prepare multiple delicious dishes. Everything we made/ ate was so delicious, I wish I had more room in my stomach to eat it all! I can’t wait to go home and make these things for my family and friends in New York. It’s special to be able to bring a taste of Greece home with you, and that’s exactly what you get when you take this class to learn how to make these dishes.the view on top of the building at night is phenomenal; truly a sight to be seen. Stam is an ambitious and amazing chef; you’ll be lucky to experience his class. Happy to call him a new friend! Thank you for the experience.

Become a master chef in just a few hours!
Whether on your honeymoon like we were or vacationing with friends, you will be missing out if you don't spend one of you nights taking this class. It is so much fun and the food you end up making is delicious. We loved sipping wine as we dined on the fruits of our labor, all the while enjoying a breathtaking view of the acropolis.

Fantastic Experience
We have taken many cooking classes around the world and this was one of the very best. Under the capable direction of chef Stam, we made chocolate mousse, tsatziki, spanakopita, Greek salad and chicken in tomato sauce. The class was hands on and we learned many new tips on making these delicious dishes.
The class ended with an amazing rooftop dining experience complete with a night view of the Acropolis. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Athens. Chef Stam was outstanding.
