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.

Lovely customized tour in Athens
In a country that can sometimes feel very disorganized, Greeking was easy to work with and very friendly. We had them customize a tour involving greek dancing followed by spirits tasting in Athens and I have to say, this was probably the best thing we did in Athens. Our guide (Eleni) was knowledgeable, friendly and even sent us an email with recommendations for the rest of our trip to other cities and islands. We got to taste some great spirits and discovered Mastiha which was definitely a good thing. Highly recommend using them while in Athens.
Greek Dance Lesson and Dinner
The experience my daughter and I had was absolutely wonderful. We really enjoyed the individual time with the dance instructor, who was most skillful and knowledgeable...not to mention quite patient with me and my lack of coordination.

Our time with Eleni our tour guide was also most delightful. She is clearly very knowledgeable about historical, recent past, and current events in Greece. Brilliant. It was something quite special to have the opportunity to spend time with someone who was most pleasant and open to all our questions. It honestly felt like she was someone I had known for a very long time, and not some mechanical and rehearsed tour guide just grinding through their job.
Incredible, authentic tours
If you want the most authentic experience in Athens, you should purchase a tour with Greeking Me. My husband and I researched tours for our honeymoon, and we decided to take the dancing class and dinner that Greeking Me offered. Anna and Nikos accompanied us to the dance class, and they made sure that we had the best experience possible. We took a dance class from a professional dancer, and learned all about the different dancing styles of Greece. After the dance class, we ate a delicious dinner with Anna, and she taught us all about Greek culture. Anna is incredibly knowledgeable, and it was such a great experience learning about Athens from a local.

My husband and I agree that this was our favorite tour from our entire trip. You will love it!
Zorba dancing class and afterwards dinner
We were 6 friends visiting Athens for a long weekend and one of the highlights was the dancing lessons provided by greeking.me. Ana was a wonderful guide and I can only recommend both dance and dinner, the latter with a magnificent view of the Acropolis.
Email correspondence with Nikos - greeking me - was swift and hazzlefree.
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.

We could not recommend this tour enough. It was fantastic. The 3D tablet view of the monuments really added an extra dimension to the experience. Our guide was an Archeologist. So smart and knowledgeable. Our children loved the tour.
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.
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.
