Exploring Athens through the eyes of Greeking.me
I visited Greece for the first time with a group of friends and wanted to explore Athens. We booked the Athens Night Tour with Greeking.me and were accompanied by their finest archaeologist guide, Eleni, who was extremely knowledgeable and had a pleasant personality.
Some of the highlights of our tour were the illuminated Parthenon, Acropolis and Theatre of Herodes Atticus, and the vibrant Plaka district. There are many amazing views all along the tour so make to take plenty of pics. There are plenty of restaurants along the way with some stunning views in case you feel hungry! I highly recommend Greeking.me, specially their Athens Tours.

Spectacular first night in Athens!
So I have always been a little skeptical of tours. I arrived on a five week vacation by myself and decided why not let's do a tour it will force me to be productive on my first night in Athens. The tour unfortunately didn't have other guests so I decided to upgrade to a one on one tour versus a refund and likely sit in my hotel. Penelope was spectacular -- not only did she study archaeology and worked prior in a museum, she's fun, kind, easy to get along with, and will customize the tour to give you more or less information depending on what you specifically want. She was happy to take photos of me when requested recommended places to eat and get coffee. And gave me a great feeling for what Athens is really like! We saw so many of the best parts of Athens -- and I now knew why each place was even more unique than originally thought.
We ended of the tour at a cozy restaurant with delicious authentic Greek food and a glass of wine! I would recommend this tour specifically with Penelope but everyone I have no doubt is wonderful. She ensured that I ended in a cab back to my hotel (five euro) to make sure I returned safely. A great first night and I would recommend this to anyone wanting more history of the city and looking to see all the main places locals/tourists go to get a great authentic feel for the city! THANKS PENELOPE!! Also, Nikos the owner is so helpful so ask questions he's very willing to help even with basics like booking ferry/train tickets (which is not something you do on the tour I just was struggling with it online).

Fabulous Athens tour!
We booked this tour as we had a very limited time in Athens. Penelope was our guide and even though we had our times mixed up and arrived 30 mins late she vary graciously waited for us and found us.
If you do nothing else in Athens I recommend this tour. Penelope's knowledge and information she told us during our tour brought the tour alive. Not to mention reminded me of my long forgotten history lessons. It was fun seeing Athens and the sights at night ,it certainly shows the city off nicely. We can not say enough good about this tour and this company and highly recommend including them in your travels of Athens
The area covered is quite vast and you need to be able to cope with hills and cobbled stones but the tour is certainly worth it
These guides genuinely care about making your experience great!
We had a wonderful evening filled with traditional Greek dancing followed by a nice music filled dinner. Nick and Anna went out of their way to ensure our night was top-notch. I would definitely recommend this tour company to everybody and anybody!
Fantastic Tour of Athens at Night!
My fiancé and I had an awesome evening walking tour of Athens last week. We were pleasantly surprised with the knowledge tour guide and views of Athens. We learned a lot and also got to try some exquisite and authentic Greek cuisine. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for something different, cultural and fun to do in Greece.
