Acropolis Skip the Line Tour
It was a fantastic tour. Our guide obviously loved what he does. He was so passionate about The Acropolis and It resonated. It was a lot of information to take in, but was very enjoyable. He spoke excellent English.

When you visit a new city, with adventure and curiosity in your soul, you have two choices in order to satisfy that need to explore new places and experiences: wander around with a guidebook in your pocket, aimlessly treading the path of some anonymous average tour guide - or pick up your camera, open your eyes to new experiences, and find a friendly, knowledgeable and generous local photographer to walk with. Whether you're a photographer or not, seeing the city through a photographer's eyes is to open your own eyes to wonder. If he's a passionate local too - even better. Vasilis of Photo Walks In Athens is just such a guide, if you're looking to see the best of the city (and beyond) in your limited time available - do it. We have so little time, there's so much to experience, get the very best experience for your precious effort. Vasilis will take you to the awesome famous historical places - but you'll get there enjoying the journey AND the destination, weaving your way through markets, and alleys, and by hidden gems such as have inspired poets and authors and artists for thousands of years.
My day with Vasilis resulted in hundreds of photos I'll keep forever, but much more importantly, memories of laughs and adventures fulfilled that have me looking forward to coming back to Athens, and walking with Vasilis again - and soon. Your Athens adventure couldn't be in better hands.

Our guide was an invaluable part of our experience at the Acropolis. If it wasn’t for her, I would have been looking at a bunch of old white pillars that meant nothing to me. There was little to no signage to explain what you’re looking at. Marilena brought the monuments to life with stories of mythology and daily life in Ancient Greece. She had iPads with a cool program where you could point them at a site and it would show you what it would have looked like at the time. Really helped make sense of what you’re looking at. Our group was very mixed in background knowledge including a toddler, 10 year old, archaeologist, and adults with no background in Ancient Greece. Marilena kept everyone engaged the entire time. (With the exception of the toddler, but that’s to be expected. And she was always understanding when he was distracting or one of us needed to step away from the group. She was great with him and made us feel he was welcome and enjoyed- a trait we’ve found lacking in other tour guides when faced with a strong-willed toddler). I’d strongly recommend her to anyone. Marilena also recommended a couple amazing local restaurants that we wouldn't have known about. She came to dinner with us and helped us chose food and wine. She's such a wealth of local knowledge. We laughed together and learned from her expertise. I feel like I truly made a friend.

If you really want to meet Athens through your camera...
I decided to book this PhotoWalks in Athens tour as a birthday gift to a friend, as we share the same interest about photography and Athenian culture, so I got in touch with this amazing photographer Vasilis. He took us to all the highlights in the heart of Athens, Plaka, Anafiotika and all around the ancient area, showed us unrevealed photographic spots and offered us the opportunity to capture from different perspectives while he shared his deep knowledge of photography rules and techniques. He answered all of our questions and we gained valuable tips. Vasilis also proved to be an excellent guide as he gave us a lot of interesting information about history and heritage, and as a local he revealed his own city secrets, very helpful for a new Athens resident like myself.
Overall, a great experience for anyone who wants to discover Athens through an alternative tour. Not only will you take amazing shots and knowledge, but you will also enjoy the whole tour!

Exceptional
We actually have 2 tours in one day. We made the Acropolis in the morning and area Walking Street organization that night. Nikos was wonderful that morning for the trip to the Acropolis. That he knew so much story and my husband really enjoyed it and he has a great enthusiast of history. Elina was our nighttime street guide and it was so much a breath of fresh air. It was like entering a friend. We really got to hang with the locals and when we stopped eating we had a wonderful conversation and we learned a lot from both sides of the Atlantic. More than he would ever have learned with a huge organization. I felt very personal. She is so young with all her knowledge was amazing. My husband has been studying Greek history for years and was really excited to find someone who could teach him something new. Left el. a stone - activated. I would definitely recommend it to the lovers of history. Be sure to bring walking shoes together.

We were delighted with our tour of the Acropolis and with our guide, Evita. After being disappointed a the “official” guides we hired at two other sites (Knossos in Crete and Pompeii in Italy) we decided to try booking a guide in advance. We have two boys age 11 and 14 and we wanted a guide that would engage them -- and us adults too. And we got it. Evita was fun, interesting, and informative. They boys (and my wife) rated her a 10 out of 10. She was really great at engaging the kids and asking them questions. So they felt involved. She used to be a teacher and it shows. The iPads with 3D views were a nice but optional addition to the tour. It still would have been good without them. Overall our trip to the Acropolis created memories that will last for ever.

Unbeatable photo tour of Athens
I had a superb tour with the very knowledgable Vasilis today. As already noted his English, sense of humour, knowledge of the city, and enthusiasm for photography (and showing off the best of his city) are second to none. He immediately put me at my ease and once I began to share my photos he was full of ideas and subtle coaching to suggest better places to stand, or angles to use, or how to pick just the right moment to take my next photo. Athens is one of those places that seems to be on every traveller's wish list - it makes sense to spend that ambition wisely by being with a guide as pleasant and expert as Vasilis. I'm wondering now if I can make time for another tour later in the week - I enjoyed it that much.

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.

We were met on time by Maria. The tour was at a good pace, and we didn't feel rushed at all. She explained things very well and answered all our questions knowledgeably. We were given ample time to take photos, ask questions and have a look around at various points. By visiting as part of the tour I felt we got a better understanding and knowledge of what we were looking at compared to visiting alone. The tour finished on time. Having a small group was also beneficial as it makes the experience more personal and enjoyable, and you feel able to ask more questions than with a larger group too. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens and the Acropolis.

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!

Despite torrential rain that made it difficult to actually walk around the Acropolis, our tour was really great thanks to our guide. Vicky was hands down the best guide we have ever had. In addition to being incredibly knowledgable, she was absolutely wonderful with our kids (8 year old twins) and did a fantastic job engaging them. She consistently got down at their level (often sitting on the floor to talk with them), played around with them (e.g., helping them "fly" over puddles), and was excellent at gauging their attention and whether they were following what she was talking about. We were very impressed!

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.

My family, 2 40-something adults, kids 10 and 12, had a great time on this tour. The tour guide, Nikos, was really knowledgeable. I really appreciated how he explained not only the mythology behind the structures we saw, but also the political motivations of the people who built them. Besides the great information from the guide, it was worthwhile to have an organized tour that forced us to get up and going before the real heat of the day. Also, the fact that Nikos, not their dad was telling them to go to the next hot, dusty "pile of rocks" kept the complaining from my kids to a minimum.

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.

Greeking.me Tour
Great tour. We had a very knowledgeable guide who gave us the historical background behind the foods we tasted.
We were introduced to a wide range of delicious foods, ranging from savory to sweet. Since there was a heat wave at the time, temperatures were very high, but thankfully the majority of the tour took place in air-conditioned restaurants/cafes, and also the walks from one location to the other were thankfully mostly shaded.
In general, excellent experience and introduction to Athens.

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!

Acropolis Skip the Line Afternoon Walking Tour
What a great way to see this beautiful monument! The afternoon tour was fantastic because it was a lot less crowded. Our guide, Dimitri, is a history professor and a wonderful storyteller; please ask for him! They provide you with water and a snack before you go, which was an unexpected and thoughtful surprise. We learned so much about not only The Acropolis, but also about the history surrounding it. Highly recommend it!

What a wonderful morning spent with Eva. She was great. She walked up through the parthenon, acropolis rock, and the acropolis museum. Girl knows her stuff. Upbeat and enthusiastic she was very polite, professional and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed our time and she is an excellent. But this tour is not for the faint of heart. This is literally up to the hill to the highest point on foot. Walkers be warned.

Our guide Ava was awesome! She met us at our hotel and too us to all of the large sites on the Acropolis, as well as the Museum. She was extremely knowledgeable, spoke great English and was as sweet as she could be. It was awesome, especially in the heat not to have to wait in any of the lines and to be able to see everything on our own timetable and at our own pace. We learned a lot and had a great time!
