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.

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 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!

Xenia was a great guide. We visited all of the sites and went at a good pace. We had lunch at a small restaurant which was nice. Highly recommend this tour.

Tour is a great way to see the Acropolis and surrounding neighborhoods. The Acropolis area is stunning. The neighborhood around is bustling. Our tour guide Eleni was expert and accomodating. Do wear walking shoes, as it is a lot of walking and it is quite warm in Athens in June. Older travelers should probably do this in pieces.

Our tour with Anastasia was wonderful! We had a really great time. First of all, it was well organized; we were able to skip lines and avoid crowds (though it was still crowded, but it appeared that it got even more crowded afterwards). More important, we were all impressed by the knowledge of Anastasia and her gentleness. Her love for Greek ancient history is simply amazing, and we learned a lot from her. And the half vehicle option was appropriate for us, because both of our kids were quite tired after lunch, and it would’ve been very hard for them if they had to walk.

We absolutely loved our Best of Athens tour with Vicky. She was the best! Vicky was a wealth of knowledge and provided great background and context to everything we saw. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone curious about Greek culture, history and the origins of Western civilization.

Marialena was a wonderful guide and a highlight of our trip. Her education and professional experience in archeology made the museum come alive as we connected with people throughout history. Greeking.me was a pleasure to work with. Eleni offered many options for our extended day in Athens as she scheduled our custom tour. Greeking.me was a pleasure to work with.
