I’m not a dancer, and have never been one. When my wife suggested this class, I went along with it to be a good sport. I didn’t expect to enjoy it, but I did.

Greek dancing is so easy, even I can do it. If you can walk in a circle, you can do it! The instructors were excellent, and our host at dinner (I’m sorry I don’t remember her name) was so nice, she made us feel at home.

Very organized, great people, very fun
Very friendly people and a very nice time! I did the Greek dancing lessons with a Greek dinner afterward, and it all went exactly how the description described it!

Fun Dance Lesson & Dinner.. Authentic and welcoming atmosphere!
I enjoyed the folk dance lesson and dinner very much! The teachers were very encouraging. This activity would be apropriate for most any age and is family friendly. The Greeking Me group stands out because the owners are so personal and will go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. More than welcome, during the few hours they are hosting you feel less like a tourist and more like a friend enjoying local activities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
