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.

Wish I could take him on the road with me!
I had an amazing time with Vasilis during my photo shoot in Athens. As a travel advisor in Greece, I have way too many photos of everything Greece, but I'm always on the other side of the lens (and I prefer it that way as I'm a little camera shy). Vasili is so friendly and comfortable to be around that I quickly relaxed and the photos show it.
He's really a pro at what he does and anyone who wants to take home some amazing memories that capture the emotion of the experience of Greece would be wise to choose him to do just that.

My Inner Zorba Dance Class!!!
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!! (There were four of us and we were grouped in with about 10 others which made it all the more fun - the group ages ranged from 6-60 and everyone enjoyed!!) Elena was lovely and so knowledgeable - she provided tour information, explained the sites as we strolled from our pick up location to designated dance class and later to dinner. She was great and looking out for a group of young tourists in our group that were 'going clubbing' later in the evening. We enjoyed our dinner (yummo!) and the lively conversation. All in all, a memorable night and something I would highly recommend and would do this again!. Opa!

Greek Cooking Class and Rooftop Dinner with Spiros
This was an amazing evening. We met Spiros in Monasteraki Square and introduced ourselves to the other couples from USA and Mexico who were enjoying the evening with us. We headed to Meliartos, the coffee shop he works in and headed up to the kitchen area to start preparing our meal. We started with a chocolate mousse dessert then prepared a spinach and ricotta pie, Tsitsaki dips, a classic Greek salad and a chicken and vege dish. We did pretty well but the finale was to head to their rooftop overlooking the Acropolis to enjoy a relaxing dinner of what we had prepared.
We sat next to a building with a commercial rooftop restaurant and I'm sure our food and ambience was better that their's.
Spiros was very helpful and informative giving us a great insight into Greek culture and the effects of the global economic disaster on his life. Good luck with your musical ambitions,Spiros.

AWESOME Dance & Dinner Tour - Best tour we did all trip! HIGHLY Recommend!
I would recommend this to anybody of any age, especially for those who are looking for something to do that’s unique and fun! 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.

Throughout our honeymoon, we did 8 tours, and can easily say that this was our favorite of all of them. Not only because of the dance moves and great food, but also because of the unmatched hospitality that Nikos and Anna showed us. I wish we knew of Greeking.me prior, as I would have booked every tour from them during our stay in Greece!

Worried about not having pictures to show all of your friends that you can dance? Don’t worry! They take pictures throughout the activity so that you can share them with your friends.

Incredible, authentic tours
If you want the most authentic experience in Athens, you should purchase a tour with Greeking Me. My husband and I researched tours for our honeymoon, and we decided to take the dancing class and dinner that Greeking Me offered. Anna and Nikos accompanied us to the dance class, and they made sure that we had the best experience possible. We took a dance class from a professional dancer, and learned all about the different dancing styles of Greece. After the dance class, we ate a delicious dinner with Anna, and she taught us all about Greek culture. Anna is incredibly knowledgeable, and it was such a great experience learning about Athens from a local.

My husband and I agree that this was our favorite tour from our entire trip. You will love it!

Great cooking tips
We are two Italian chefs and cooking instructors and we had a very interesting cooking experience with chef Stem at the bakery where he works near Monastiraki. We have worked in the upstairs laboratories, which were not spotless at the end of the working day. Nevertheless we got great tips from a very nice and knowledgeable chef even on simple traditional Greek recipes like spinach pie, tzatziki, Greek salad and sauté chicken. On the rooftop there is a great view of the Acropolis but, due to bad weather, we had a nice dinner in the inside restaurant together with our fellow foodies from New Zealand. In conclusion we were favorably impressed by the overall experience and we suggest it to any foodie.

Greek Dance Lesson and Dinner
The experience my daughter and I had was absolutely wonderful. We really enjoyed the individual time with the dance instructor, who was most skillful and knowledgeable...not to mention quite patient with me and my lack of coordination.

Our time with Eleni our tour guide was also most delightful. She is clearly very knowledgeable about historical, recent past, and current events in Greece. Brilliant. It was something quite special to have the opportunity to spend time with someone who was most pleasant and open to all our questions. It honestly felt like she was someone I had known for a very long time, and not some mechanical and rehearsed tour guide just grinding through their job.

Lovely customized tour in Athens
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 spirits tasting in Athens and I have to say, this was probably the best thing we did in Athens. Our guide (Eleni) was knowledgeable, friendly and even sent us an email with recommendations for the rest of our trip to other cities and islands. We got to taste some great spirits and discovered Mastiha which was definitely a good thing. Highly recommend using them while in Athens.

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.

Amazing street art tour
We met with Sofia, our guide (and also a street artist) at Gazi metro station. Anna, one of the co-founders also joined us in order to make sure that everything was perfect for our private street art tour.
Sofia showed us places that only locals know and explained why street art is so famous nowadays in Greece. We also made a coffee stop at a very nice square downtown! The tour was great, we took many photos as souvenirs and explored Athens in a very alternative and local way.

Fun Dance Lesson & Dinner.. Authentic and welcoming atmosphere!
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. More than welcome, during the few hours they are hosting you feel less like a tourist and more like a friend enjoying local activities.

The BEST ACTIVITY AND GUIDE!!
We were in Greece for a week and this was easily the best activity that we did! My only regret is that we did not do more than one day with John. John is wonderful, easy to work coordinate with, made our life easy, he thought of everything... completely trusted him as captain. The time on the boat was exciting and fun and absolutely perfect. I can not recommend him enough....SO MUCH FUN!!

More fun than I thought it would be
I’m not a dancer, and have never been one. When my wife suggested this class, I went along with it to be a good sport. I didn’t expect to enjoy it, but I did.

Greek dancing is so easy, even I can do it. If you can walk in a circle, you can do it! The instructors were excellent, and our host at dinner (I’m sorry I don’t remember her name) was so nice, she made us feel at home.

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.

Zorba dancing class and afterwards dinner
We were 6 friends visiting Athens for a long weekend 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.
Email correspondence with Nikos - greeking me - was swift and hazzlefree.
