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.

Perfect memories captured professionally.
Michalis is such a wonderful and talented photographer. My wife and I and two daughters traveled to Athens, Greece during Spring Break. Although I am the type who dislikes posing for photographs, we reserved a day photo shoot with Michalis as my wife loves family photos and I enjoy city tours. Michalis took us through the streets of Athens to view the local city center and spots only local Athenians would know about. We enjoyed his company so much that we reserved a second session with him at a different location to marvel the views of the sunset. Not only did Michalis capture every detail on film magnificently, he knows the city very well and gave us some great tips on places to visit and suggestions on places to eat.

The pictures turned out beautifully. We can’t thank Michalis enough for his friendship and for capturing the most memorable moments of our trip to Athens. If you are considering reserving a Day/Night photo shoot, do not hesitate to book a session with Michalis. You will not regret it.

Try it
So, we wanted to do something different from the typical tourist sightseeing stuff in Athens. We came across this, booked it and got reply and instructions where to go and meet up.
Very polite and friendly people arranging this, absolutely lovely meeting them.
A brief history about the ancient Greek art of clay and then we got to the crafting.
It looked very easy and smooth when the instructor worked with the clay, but don't be fooled, it was not at all as easy as it looked.
Was a fun and interesting experience, I would probably go again when visiting Athens again.
Definitely recommend this for anyone
Greek Souvenir Pottery Workshop
Beautiful experience & professional photos!
We have spend a beautiful time with Michalis at Athens. Our group have been visited Plaka and Acropolis hills a day before, but he took as there by such interesting and I would even say "secret" path, that we would never found ourselves.
We wanted to have both day & night photos, so we have booked double time (4 hours) starting from 18:00 to 22:00. We saw very many interesting and nice places where Michalis took very professional group, couples and individual photos of all of us.
I definetelly recommend Michalis not only as professional photographer, but also as very kind and polite guide!

Awesome photoshoot in Athens by night
Michalis is a super nice guy that has an incredible eye for photography. We went around Athens at night and even with rain he was able to get some great shots and I had a fun time modelling and talking with him. He even carried around my bad of clothes as he took photos so the bag wouldn't get wet! Super great guy and a must do in Athens for some quality photos!

A must-do
This is an amazing opportunity at an incredibly low price. With Michalis you will have a personalized experience to see Athens from a new perspective and to receive excellent high-quality photos. Michalis is a talented photographer who will literally capture you in your best light. He is technical about each detail in order to create the best images. Working with Michalis has been effortless. He has responded to my every message on various platforms promptly and respectfully. He directed our group (including my 2-year-old) through Athens easily and relaxed. After a great evening in Athens, he sent our edited, beautiful photos in an amazingly short time and stayed in touch to make sure I received them and to offer tips for other fun things to do during our time in Athens. I highly recommend this experience for a great time in Athens, for the gorgeous photos, and for the opportunity to connect with Michalis who is a reliable and easy-going person and a talented photographer.

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.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!
Christou was amazing! we wanted to take this tour but because of conflict on the travel agenda we couldn't meet the time, Chritou was willing to modify his tour time to aligned with ours and the experience was amazing. Communication was great and Chris was great giving us city insights and taking wonderful pics of us walking in the city. He is very passionate of his works and have great knowledge of what he is doing. He is very friendly and was able to guide us to have the best posses for our photos. I will recommend this tour to all my friends and family visiting Athens.
Thank you Chris for an amazing experience, keep in touch.

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.

Book Him Now!!
Don't look at any other photographer! Book Michalis now! He should get triple his price! I have paid a lot more for photo shoots and didn't get even half as many usuable pictures as I did with Michalis. He is polite, sweet and never rushes you. He knows the area like a pro. The ONLY problem you will have is trying to pick your favorites out of so many great shots. I wish I could take him on all my travels to be my personal photographer.
Thank you Michalis!
