Marina's Athens Food Tour is an Athens Must Do!!!
Marina's food tour of athens was a true highlight of our time in Athens. We were a group of older people and me, and she was considerate at all times about their wants and likes. We saw and tasted so much, and not just food, but about the history and people of Athens. It was a truly wonderful way to explore and get to know Athens better, filled with delicious treats and visual wonders too, and in particular the impact of migration, and the 1921 Greek refugees from Turkey, on the food and neighbourhoods of Athens. Marina has a wealth of knowledge and options for sweat and savoury treats, and personal relations with many of the shops, that ensured we didn't miss anything! She also could tailor it as we went along, based on peoples cravings. Thank you so much Marina for opening our eyes, stomachs and hearts to Athens. And thank you for all the assistance you gave my parents (who had been pick pocketed earlier in the day). We can't thank you enough for everything! If you come to Australia, we will repay your hospitality

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

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!

Don't miss this tour with Marina!
Marina was our smartest choice in planning our visit to Athens.
The tour with her was out very first thing we did in the city right upon arrival and it was exactly what a visitor needs in a new city: a local showing her/him around while pointing out at best spots to eat (where we of course tasted different foods) and places to visit again later. all was with her fluent English and knowledge of Athens past and present day and night life.

she was kind and lovely and gave us the best welcome possible to Athens.
We highly recommend her tour !!

Amazing experience!
Marina is the most knowledgeable, energetic, fun to be around professional foodie ever. I recommend her food tour to everyone. It was seriously the highlight of my week trip in Athens. She gave me so many recommendations and I will have enough food to try for four Athens trips!
On the tour, do try to try something new - greek food can be very different if you’re from North America or the UK. You never know if you’ll actually end up liking something that you thought you’d hate!

The best guide in town
My Husband and I had the chance to meet Marina while staying in Athens for the weekend in July this year. It was a real eye opening food tour with surprises in every corner and great food tips from our guide.
Marina has great knowledge in food and wines and shares it with a great passion. We have really good memories from our time in Athens and Marina's food tour.
If you have to do one tour in Athens, this is the one!

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!

Amazing photos
Michalis is a really skilled photographer who knows how to work with the backgrounds and lighting. I have done a few photoshoots with other photographers, but the pictures from this shoot are by far the best I have received. Great value for money - would definitely use again and cannot recommend enough!

Great tour
Marina showed us a side of Greek cuisine we would not have seen had we stuck to the popular spots near the Acropolis; there is more to it than souvlaki and moussaka (both excellent dishes by the way). I highly recommend doing the tour at the beginning of your stay.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

Great Experience
The food tour was one of the best parts of our trip! Marina was really wonderful to spend the day with and she had the best food spots in Athens for us to try. Overall a very awesome experience!

Fantastic, flexible and personal tour! Don't miss it!
This tour is a dream. Marina took us to the small spots that you'd never think of eating at (or know that you could eat at).

A highlight of our time in Athens!
My friends and I signed up for this tour somewhat last minute and were SO happy we did! Marina met us at a convenient location not far from where we were staying, and took us on an incredible walking journey through Athens' food culture. We sampled all kinds of Greek specialties -- things we never would have known to try (or known how to even order/ask for!) had we not gone on this tour. And we visited neighborhoods that we may not have seen otherwise. Come with an empty stomach, because you will want to eat and drink everything at every stop! Marina has a very warm personality and it was easy to spend hours walking and touring with her as she shared insights into the history and culture of Athens, and Greece generally, and the origins of some of the food we were trying. As we continued our travels through Greece after leaving Athens, we kept referring back to our tour with Marina - saying things like "that's that pastry we tried on our food tour in Athens" or "that's the fava that Marina was telling us about!" Very highly recommended - you won't regret it.

Taste of Athens
Tour sounds far too impersonal – our experience was much closer to meeting an old friend who took us on a private adventure in amazing Athens!

Marina first met us at a location near our hotel where she catered our journey exactly the way we wanted – this equalled getting food first as we were starving! Lol Aside from that, we totally lost track of time and the fact that we were even on a tour. Marina felt like an old friend catching up with us, explaining – in detail – the city she loves.

My only criticism would be to change the name of the tour. Marina absolutely took us on a route that introduced a number of gastronomy focused establishments, but she over delivered with deep and interesting knowledge on the history of Athens, politics, economy and a number of amazing conversational pieces that really competed our 10 day journey in Greece.

Marina became our friend and her tour completely overshadowed the overpriced Acropolis bus tour we had the day before.
5 STARS from us and we 100% recommend this tour!

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.

Great Intro to Athens
We loved our tour with Marina!!! Fantastic way to get to know your way around while truly enjoying the local feel, taste & smell of the city. She provided good company & a wonderful knowledge of what was offered in this area.(Lots) Marina showed us great food & history she supplied us with many places. We liked that you order & pay after she makes a few recommendations. After several good food stops you could actually map location & places by the feel , taste & smell of whole downtown city! We were only there one day & hate we couldn’t do one of the other tours with her also.(next time) Thankfully this tour provides a wonderful start & opens the door to not only great food , history but good company .Its a wonderful Intro to the navigation of this city. Follow your nose😋 * Highly Recommended
Thx Again,

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!

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.

BEST PART OF OUR TRIP
When you first land in Athens you realize it’s a pretty run down and dirty city. We did our time at the acropolis and did all the temples but the 4 hour tour with Marina completely turned our experience around! She showed up parts of the city that were interesting and fun and even showed us some really fun and cool things near our hotel. We had been walking by these places for three days and never knew what they were. If you want to see Athens, you need to do it with a local and a local like Marina was a BLESSING!

Do yourself a favor and definitely take this tour specifically with Marina. My friend and I didn’t take the food walk tour till our last day in Athens, and that’s something we regret the most about our trip. Marina gave us a deep appreciation for the city and for that we are thankful.
