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!

We had a great time on the tour! Wonderful experience, our guide was very knowledgeable and professional, and spoke very well with great insights into the history & mythology. And the photos look great! I would definitely recommend it to others visiting Greece!

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!

Athens food tour
Had a lovely stroll around parts of Athens sampling delicious food. As other reviewers have said you go to places Elena had emotional connections with making the tour seem like sharing with her her experiences. She is very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. It was a good page. Good amount of food. Full but not stuffed and unable to walk when finished! An alternative food was offered to a person with allergy. Very good experience. Would definitely recommend.

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!

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.

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.
