What people are saying about Athens

I and my partner Gordon thoroughly enjoyed our dance lesson. In addition to some basic Greek folk dances, Melina taught me the iconic Greek men's dance hasapiko from Zorba the Greek. It was so much fun! We also really enjoyed our tour guide Konstantine. His English was excellent, and he had wide knowledge of Greek history and culture. He also had a lot of interesting personal life experiences to share. We learned a lot from him and wish him the best!

Loved the Ancient Greek theater performance! Four talented young men kept us entertained with (parts of) ancient theater plays for 90 minutes. The simplest of settings with the most magnificent view of Acropolis!

Amazing location for a very fun run through of some ancient plays/myths. All the players were great and the whole thing had a really fun feel throughout. a lovely, light hearted end to our trip in Athens
