Fantastic tour in a fantastic city!
I only had a day in Athens before hitting the islands and I wanted to see what exactly made Athens such a great city. I contacted several tour operators and thank goodness I found Greeking.me.
Not only did they promptly respond but Velocity made every effort to ensure I had an unforgettable, tailor-made experience. She suggested a combination of several tours that covered the Acropolis, the island-style old town, a few hip areas around town in addition to a food tour!
Needless to say it was better than I had anticipated especially as Evita was my tour guide. Evita was especially knowledgeable not only about modern Greek culture (duh, she’s Greek) but also recounted in fascinating detail relavent Greek history and incredible mythology stories. Through out the tour she would pull out a folder with pictures showcasing landmarks belonging to different periods on the timeline which was a great addition.
The food and drinks part is simply to die for and can be reviewed in an entire article on its own as we sampled many different sweet and savoury dishes and local drinks. Highly recommended and such a refreshing experience from start to finish. Be warned though, you may fall in love with Athens after this tour and decide to skip the islands and return just for the city.

Making Athens Incredibly Awesome!
We did 2 tours with Greeking.me - the 'Breakfast and Acropolis Tour' and the 'Private Night Food Tour with Wine Tasting'. Both Eva and Elena provided fantastic tours that were fun, informative, and at a pace that was comfortable. The Greek breakfast before the acropolis tour was a nice way to start the day and fill up before walking with Eva around the Plaka and the acropolis hill. I couldn't imagine doing a tour of the acropolis without a great guide to tell you the history and mythology of the ancient city. The food and wine tour with Elena was also a wonderful way to learn about Greek culture. Food stops were excellent and provided a good overview of common foods that the Greeks eat - some expected and many unexpected. Both Elena and Eva also sent post-tour emails to us on things to do in Athens and the islands we were going to be visiting on our trip - a nice follow-up touch that speaks to the quality of this company. Highly recommend a tour with Greeking.me when visiting Athens.

Perfect way to see the Acropolis!
We took the breakfast and Acropolis tour and it exceeded our expectations. We had arrived into Athens early that morning, so we were looking for something that didn't require us to make decisions or lead ourselves and this was perfect. Anna met us and escorted us to a delicious breakfast. We scarfed down pies, yogurt and rice pudding--absolutely delicious. Marialena then met us and the tour began. Also an archaeologist, Marialena was a phenomenal tour guide and knew just where to position us for the perfect picture or to keep us in the shade. She takes great pride in Athens and its history, which made it that much better of a tour. If you want to see the Acropolis, I can't recommend this high enough!

Breakfast and the Acropolis
We had set up a tour that started with being met in our hotel in Plaka, walked a few blocks to Metro, road the incredibly nice subway one stop to arrive at a beautiful greek shop where we were served a lovely greek breakfast. (if anything, way too much food) After a great meal and sincere conversations, we met Marialena who then took us on a fascinating tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. The tour included an IPad based alternate reality feature which our daughter really loved. You always expect tour guides to be knowledgeable in their base subjects, but Marialena was far above any expectations. (later learned the is a trained archeologist). She brings incredible knowledge of Athens, The Acropolis and Museum, coupled with modern history, and even where all the shade on the Acropolis is. We would highly recommend this service and can't imagine you will find a better option.
