Terrific Tour
Our tour with Eleni was fabulous. We loved seeing parts of Athens we would never have found and tasting authentic Greek dishes. Eleni was a perfect host, so warm and interesting. She was an excellent ambassador for Greek cuisine and gave us a glimpse of how Greeks live outside the tourist haunts. We were very pleased to receive a follow-up email with notes from our tour, some favorite recipes and even her suggestions for food in our upcoming stay in Santorini. We try to do food tours in cities we visit and this was an excellent choice. One of my favorite discoveries in Greece was the drink Maotixa. We bought a bottle at one of Eleni’s stops and smiled every time we had a drink. I only hope I can find it in the US. Eleni and GreekingMe Food tours were a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Athens.

Fabulous Food Tour
Got to experience the food tour in the night thanks to my friends who gifted it to me and my wife. We had no idea what to expect but by the end of the tour we decided that for all our future trips we will start with a food tour.

Elena was fabulous in taking us through the various options of Greek cuisine and that set the tone for our wonderful two-week trip. We had this on the first night in Athens and thanks to Elena's tips we visited a few more restaurants in other places across Greece. On the night we were back in Athens we went back to one of the restaurants (Ergon Deli).
We will definitely recommend everyone who visits Greece (especially Asians) who are not familiar with authentic Greek cuisine to signup with these guys.
Thanks for the experience.

We just returned from our 12 day vacation around the Mediterranean and we all agreed this was the best tour of the whole trip. Our guide was Theo and I cannot say enough good things about him. He spoke of the history of Athens in such a way he kept us interested the entire time and his passion for the subject was evident. Don't let the 4 hour tour length scare you off. You get to see and experience so much that the time goes by quickly. There is quite a bit of walking so wear comfortable shoes but nothing my 75 year old mother, fiancé and I felt was overwhelming or strenuous. We honestly could have gone all day seeing Athens through the eyes of Theo! Thank you for a wonderful day!

We were in Greece for 14 days and we went on a tour everyday but this one was one of the best. The tour started on time and we had Eleni as our tour guide and she was excellent. Eleni spoke perfect English, she was very energetic and charming; she was absolutely passionate in explaining and sharing with us so many historical information about Greece. Make sure that you wear good shoes because there will be a lot of walking but the tour was so interesting that time would go by very fast. Take this tour only if you want to learn a lot about Greece and for tour guide, you must ask for Eleni; she simply stands out to be the best because of her caring personality and professionalism.

Highly personalized and insightful foray into Greek Cuisine
Elena, our guide took us (my husband and me) through a lovely night time stroll through the Syntagma, Monastiraki, Plaka and Psirri. She took us to a variety of places from chic cafes to family-run tavernas. We loved just about every dish we sampled and learnt so much about the cuisine, it's influences and the history. We did the tour on the first day of our 2 week holiday and this set us up so well for the rest of our trip. We knew what to order going forward and were not stuck to eating Sovlaki and Gyros for every meal. Elena gave us helpful suggestions about restaurants to visit in Santorini and Nafplio as well. Thank you GreekingMe and Elena for this wonderful experience.

We were in Athens only for one day off of a cruise ship and initially booked the market/cooking class, but as it was a Sunday, the food market was closed and we cancelled because we wanted the total experience of the shopping for ingredients, etc. that being said, we saw the morning stroll offered and went for it and boy are we glad we did! Eleni, our guide, has a lovely personality and is extremely knowledgeable about her people and country. So many things we didn’t know were told in such a casual, informative way, what a great teacher she would make. We highly recommend this tour, this company and look forward to another visit to Athens....Opa!

Our experience with GreekingMe was excellent from pick up at the ship to meeting our guide and then spending 4 hours getting to know Plakka and the Acropolis thanks to our amazing tour guide. She presented us with stories and images that helped us appreciate our surroundings and the history that goes with it. We would tour with GreekingMe again and we would recommend them without hesitation. One of our best experiences while on our.cruise. Thank you GreekingMe!

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!!

Penelope, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She provided us with drawings and renditions of what the ruins had looked like in ancient times. She answered any questions we had. We walked through some great historically neighborhoods. If you have a limited amount of time, I would recommend this tour.

We had an absolutely wonderful tour with Penelope. She was warm, patient and so very knowledgeable about everything on our tour. She gave us a very enlightening history of the city of Athens and Greek history. This brought it to life for us and made us want to come back again.
