We had such a wonderful experience with our guide Martina! We loved all the different activities at each stop: historical background, games, activities, clues. Extremely well planned and thought out. Especially appreciated was the mid-experience snack/drinks break. We never felt rushed and the private experience was something my thirteen year old said she loved. “I love this because it’s not just all talking.” If you know teenagers, this is high praise. Especially because I didn’t know if she would just be bored the whole time. By the middle of the tour, my little one felt so comfortable that she held hands with Martina for the duration of our day together. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you!

This was an amazing adventure and so well paced for my two children (5 and 7). We had a blast and they learned so much. We are now having to take out all the Greek Mythology books from their school library! We highly recommend this tour.

We did two tours with Be a Greek in advance of a cruise we took out of Athens. We did a private tour of the National Observatory and a private tour of the National Archaeological Museum. Both tours were hands down the best tours we had including all of our ship excursions. Both Jimmy at the Observatory and Sophia at the Archaeological Museum were knowledgeable and relatable, and transportation to and from our hotel was excellent. We would absolutely use Be a Greek again.

This is a fantastic tour for anyone interested in philosophy (particularly Socrates, Plato and Aristotle). You get to see important philisophical sites in Athens and learn a substantial amount of Athenian history. There is plenty of time for questions and photos and the walk is quite leisurely (not too long). Bianca is a wonderful tour guide and we really appreciated the coffee stop in her favourite cafe. She has amazing knowledge and is very generous in sharing her insight and expertise. Highly recommended tour.

My husband and I had the most amazing trip to Santorini and Athens that was perfectly curated by the Be A Greek team. Dimitrios and Bianca were super responsive and checked in with us regularly in the months leading up to our trip. They gave us the perfect mix of tours and free days. Bianca checked in with us daily to make sure we were doing ok and to provide detailed information for what to expect the following day, making everything very easy and seamless for us. We had a wonderful 4-hour private tour around Santorini, which included a wine tasting at a super cool winery - Art Space Winery - with Jessica and learned about the amazing history behind the island. The catamaran cruise that was booked for us was so lovely! In Athens, we had another 4-hour private tour with Martina where she walked us all around the city to check out a number of historic sites, including the Parliament, the Olympic Stadium, Arch of Hadrian, and Monastiraki Square. She was super knowledgeable and shared so much about the history and culture. We also had a wonderful 4-hour private tour at the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum with Maria. It was an amazing experience walking through and learning the history behind the ancient ruins. We enjoyed all of our tours very much and our tour guides were all so delightful! We can't thank the Be A Greek team enough for a truly memorable experience. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a tour or needing help with planning a trip to Greece!
