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 archaeologist. We wouldn't change a thing about the experience.
Hubby and I took a private tour of the Acropolis and new museum. We were guided by the knowledgeable, wonderful Xenia who made the experience very personal.The customer service was exceptional. I would recommend Greeking.me as a wonderful group of dedicated people, to organise a great holiday experience!
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!
Evita is an excellent guide for families, able to engage with school-aged kids and their parents! 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. We will certainly contact greeking.me again if we return to Greece!
We took a tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum with Alexandra. 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.
Our guide was incredible, the kids were amazed with the way she presented the history...it was like a story for them and we all really enjoyed it.
The tailored tour we had definitely made our short trip to Athens a most memorable experience. Xenia, our guide, was a perfect match for us!We will certainly remember her and this lovely and most instructive day for a long time. This is a hearty recommendation to anyone who wishes to get to know Athens at first hand.
