    Great experience and highly recommend tour of Athens sites, history, culture, and finished with a wonderful dinner. Our guide, Penelope, gave us an expertly delivered tour around the Plaka, Anafiotika, Monastiraki Square to mention a few. This tour is an absolutely must if you want to get to know the old city of Athens, it’s culture and history, and finish tour with an authentic meze dinner at a local favorite restaurant.

    Wow! So loved our Athens Highlight tour with Penelope! She is so delightful, personable and knowledgeable on so many various aspects of Grecian history, both recent and ancient. As a certified archeologist and tour guide she gracefully laid out our highlights tour in a very walkable and fascinating route through neighborhoods around the Acropolis. Very easy to understand and presented all the facts clearly and effectively so as not to lose the attention of my travel exhaust 13 year old child. For that, I am very grateful! Truly enjoyed seeing lots of historic landmarks and feeling grounded as to where I was in relation to our hotel. And the meze dinner.... wow! As my child is a very picky eater, Penelope was able to find a fantastic taverna that satisfied my desire for authentic Greek dishes and my child's desire for typical bland food. We were both quite satisfied and it is a meal I will always remember.. historic landmarks

    My advice is, as soon as you arrive, book a tour with Greeking.me and get a solid foundation for your exploration of Athens for the week ahead. It seems that majority of tourists use Athens as a stopover on the way to the islands. As a result, they will see Acropolis and try gyros on Monastiraki square, while missing out on all the other treasures. We spent a whole week in Athens in October 2020 and this was not enough. There is so much to see in Athens museums and open air sites, you need at least a month to do this city justice. If you want to quickly determine which monuments you want to see up close and have an overall understanding of Athens history, an introductory tour in the first day or two on your holiday is a must. We booked Athens Higlights Evening Tour and our guide Penelope was an absolute delight. We spent more than 3 hours walking streets of Athens , absorbing history and ancient tales. Penelope was great at engaging my daughter, who is 9 and has Ancient Greece as part of her school curriculum this year, and making parallels with mythology. At each of the sites Penelope gave us detailed description of the history and background to the monument. She was able to show us on her iPad how some of the characters looked like , or how a certain temple or a building were used when they were first built. I thought iPad material was a great addition to a walking tour, especially for my daughter as it was much easier for her to imagine how things would have looked like when they were first built. We did not go inside any of the historical sites or buildings during the tour. However, with Penelope’s guidance we were able to determine which ones we wanted to visit during our stay in Athens and went there on other days. For example, Penelope pointed out a couple of churches, which she suggested we could visit during the day. We did come back to a couple of them later in a week, and I thought that Penelope’s recommendations were spot on. Overall, I could not think of better guide and a better organisation of the tour from Greeking. me. Booking process was straightforward and Greeking.me was always responsive on the emails. I thought the tour was a perfect start to our holiday in Athens and would definitely appeal to families with school aged kids.

    Loved our tour guide Eleni, she was very informative and knew her stuff! I would totally recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Athens

    Eleni was a wonderful guide and made us feel instantly at home in Athens. We visited several of the same sites during the day after our evening tour and we all agreed that they are most beautiful at night. Eleni used her media device to add detail to her presentation and it really helped us understand the history better. The meal was great, too. Thanks for a great tour!

    It was an interesting food tour with a lot of good food. In fact, we could not eat it all:)) as a bonus, our guide Tatialena was a very pleasent person and she smiled all the time creating a relaxing atmosphere.

    We had the best time on our tour with Penelope! She was everything you would want a local guide to be- extremely knowledgeable, warm, and welcoming. We loved that she had an iPad with her to show us how sites might have looked thousands of years ago. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone

    My tour guide, Elen,i did an awesome job showing me the beautiful historical sights and different parts of the city during our night walking tour. She was very knowledgeable of the history and great places to visit in the area. I’d recommend taking this tour the first day of your visit to get recommendations on things to see the remainder of your trip - which she recommended based on my interests. We finished the evening with a delicious meal where she recommended popular Greek dishes that I never would have thought to order. Thanks, Eleni!
