This was a very fun evening! Tina at Greeking.me suggested this experience for our family of 4 and it was really cool to see the kids trying to learn the steps of greek dances. Dinner was also excellent!
The whole experience was amazing from the right beginning, when our driver Kosta met us at our hotel reception. When we arrived at the village we couldn't believe how lucky we were - the dance lesson was a great experience. We also loved the food - highly recommended.
