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.

More fun than I thought it would be

My Inner Zorba Dance Class!!!
Oh my gosh ... what to say??
We just returned from a fantastic trip to Greece and I wanted to thank your team at Greeking Me for putting together a wonderful experience for us - My Inner Zorba!! The dance class was so much fun and we couldn't stop laughing and dancing to the beat!! (There were four of us and we were grouped in with about 10 others which made it all the more fun - the group ages ranged from 6-60 and everyone enjoyed!!) Elena was lovely and so knowledgeable - she provided tour information, explained the sites as we strolled from our pick up location to designated dance class and later to dinner. She was great and looking out for a group of young tourists in our group that were 'going clubbing' later in the evening. We enjoyed our dinner (yummo!) and the lively conversation. All in all, a memorable night and something I would highly recommend and would do this again!. Opa!

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!

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!

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.
