Fantastic Acropolis & Acropolis Museum Tour
The Acropolis & Museum tour was the highlight of our short stay in Athens. Marialena taught us so much and I can't recommend this experience enough. She was sweet, down to earth, and so passionate about her work as an archeologist. It was a memorable experience that we look fondly back on and we wouldn't change a thing about the experience.

Perfect day at the Acropolis!
Hubby and I took a private tour of the Acropolis and new museum with Greeking.me as a solution to 1 day only in Athens, on the way back from Crete. We were guided by the knowledgeable, wonderful Xenia whose passion for Greek culture and history was very striking. Xenia answered all of our never ending questions and made the experience very personal.
We started with a tour through the museum, then going through the elegant pathways connecting the two, continued the tour of the Acropolis, visiting all the different features seen on small-scale in the museum. Xenia then dropped us off at a restaurant which Nikos, manager at Greeking.me booked for us (close to our hotel), making a superb conclusion to a wonderful day.
The customer service for organising the tour, by Nikos and the tour conducted by Xenia was exceptional. Nikos was in touch with us before and after the tour and was most attentive to our needs. The next time we are in Athens, we will do the food tour! Without hesitation, I would recommend Greeking.me as a wonderful group of dedicated people, to organise a great holiday experience!

Informative, interesting tours which were good for adults and children
We did two private tours (Acropolis and Mycenae) and one small group one (the walking food tour of Athens) and all three were really good. The tour leaders were great; informative and interesting whilst being perfectly friendly and encouraging questions. Really good and will be booking with them again when we return to Greece!
Athens Acropolis Tour for family
We experienced two tours with greeking.me - the Acropolis & Acropolis Museum tour and the Day Trip to Delphi tour, with Evita as our guide for both. She is an excellent guide for families, able to engage with school-aged kids and their parents! This was our first visit to Greece, our first international trip with kids (ages 8 and 4), and our first time having a personal tour guide. Greeking.me made all the difference between enjoying and learning about the sights we visited, versus just looking at things in a rush because the kids were cranky.
Booking the tours was easy, and Nikos was able to accommodate us both on short notice and a few days in advance. We will certainly contact greeking.me again if we return to Greece!
Good Tour and Excellent Service
We took a tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum with Alexandra. The sites are amazing, larger than life. Alexandra was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating of our 2 young children. Although we booked only a day or two before, Nikos responded quickly to my email and met us at our hotel with a gift of wine to make arrangements. Greeking.me is a professional and active tour operator.
