What other guests say about our tours and locals
Cooking fun in Athens
"Melina was warm and knowledgeable. We all learned something new to try at home and this made our time in Athens memorable. We appreciated learning and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Melina, thank you for your kindness."WendyAbout local MelinaAthens, November 16, 2023
Dionysia-an evening with a Gree
"My friend and I had the loveliest time spending the evening with Dionysia. She was beyond welcoming and made us feel like we were just making dinner and catching up with “our Greek Cousin.” We started our evening preparing the dough for the homemade pitas, as we enjoyed wine and stories. Then prepped the pork and placed it on the rotisserie while we moved on to taziki and dessert. The evening was absolutely perfect! The food was amazing and we cannot wait to get home to recreate these recipes. We are very excited for our new friend’s future endeavors and hope we meet again sometime soon! This was definitely the highlight of the trip! The only bummer is we did it on day 2 of our 10 day trip, and I don’t think anything can top it! 7 more days to go before I can go home and make these dishes for my family and friends. Thank you my friend! Erica and Heidi"EricaAbout local DionysiaAthens, November 10, 2023
Inspiring frienfly Cooking Experience
"Melina and I discussed the menu that we would like to cook even we booked this experience. Melina is passionate about cooking ( you can find her on utube ) and her knowledge and experience shines through. My son and I are used to coking from scratch, but it was so good to learn how to improve. I have already incorporated her tips into my cooking, and what a difference. I would recommend this to others. We had a wonderful day with Melina. "GeraldineAbout local MelinaAthens, October 29, 2023
"My fiancé and I joined Dionysia on our final day of our 2 week Greece holiday and it was the perfect way to end the trip! We had searched through several cooking class options and ultimately chose Dionysia for the fact that 1) it was to make gyros (our favorite!) which was not an option in any other ones we found and 2) all the previous reviews left. Dionysia helped us arrange a taxi to and from her house. She made us feel very comfortable upon our arrival and she had plenty of beer and wine for us to drink the whole time! We made so much food we were so full when we left we could barely move! Overall, we had so much fun and highly recommend this to anyone interested in a cooking class while in Athens. She also told us she’d be sending a copy of the recipes we made via email which we are so excited for. "KelseyAbout local DionysiaAthens, October 7, 2023
"From the warm welcome and the amazing hospitality, to the stunning view and delicious meal - everything surpassed our expectations! It was a good thing we skipped lunch that day because there was so much food! My kids are still talking about how much they enjoyed the calamari and the baked feta. Highly recommend!"SheriAbout local MichailAthens, July 5, 2023
The BEST HOST
"It was definitely best experience of our trip to Greece! Melina is so warm, kind and giving and has the energy that makes you feel like you’re at home from the get-go! You will love her anecdotes, her insight into Greek culture and definitely her cooking hacks! She made my mother’s 60th birthday really special ❤️"AkhilAbout local MelinaAthens, June 30, 2023
A wonderul way to experience Hellas
"This experience was truly a gem of my travel in Hellas, the true name of Greece. Not only was Dionysia a wonderful cook, she was also a wonderful ambassador to her homeland, its cuisine, its history, and its culture. The few hours I spent with her and her beautiful family went by so quickly, because it was so much fun. During my travel, I truly felt and experienced that the Hellenic people value their families above all else. Along with all other families I met on this trip, Dionysia affirmed it during the lovely evening I spent with her family. Highly recommended for everyone traveling to Hellas! "MinjooAbout local DionysiaAthens, May 15, 2023
Personalized cooking class
"Michail is genuinely passionate about his cooking and making the experience exceptional. All the cooking and eating is on his porch on the 6th floor overlooking Athens in a compact European apartment setting. He has a heater and the weather was fantastic. With the freshest ingredients and his skill, he can make magic with minimal cooking space. He sourced many of his ingredients from his family’s island farm and personalized the menu for healthy eating with lots of vegetables. It was a fantastic meal and experience! "NelsonAbout local MichailAthens, January 7, 2023
Unique & delicious: A must do in Athens!
"Such a unique and fantastic afternoon with Dionysia and her family! Time flew by! We highly recommend it and we will do it again next time we are in Athens. Every detail of this experience was carefully designed with us in mind, as Dionysia communicated with us to make sure we let her know what we wanted. She and her family made us feel so welcomed in their home and ensured we had enough food for the entire day!!! We could not stop eating although we knew we had had more than enough. Everything was super fresh, simply prepared but SOOO FULL of flavor, it was impossible to stop eating. We sat down in her beautifully decorated patio for three hours that seemed like 20 minutes! We talked food, family, politics and traveling the world! We could have stayed there all night sipping into that nice white wine. She invited my son to make a special dessert, to celebrate his birthday: it was truly an unforgettable experience! Thank you, Dionysia, Jason and Kostas, until next time! "MarciaAbout local DionysiaAthens, November 21, 2022
