Greeking me provides a range of guided tours, workshops, activities, cooking lessons, and other services (“Experiences”, “Experience”) to travelers visiting Athens, Greece. By reserving a place in any of these Experiences, you (henceforth referred to as “Participant”, “you”, or “Participants”) shall have automatically accepted the terms mentioned herein, confirm that you have fully understood them and have agreed to all of them.
2. Experiences sold by Greeking me
All the information and details of Experiences sold by Greeking me are described on the website www.greeking.me. Some of Greeking me Experiences may require a minimum number of participants in order to take place. This minimum number is clearly indicated in each Experience’s respective description on our Website. Greeking me reserves the right to cancel an Experience at any given time, up to 24 hours before the scheduled start and for any reason, including but not limited to, an insufficient number of participants.
3. Pricing and details
Greeking me reserves the right to add, withdraw, substitute and/or vary advertised routes, prices and departure times for any of its Experiences without notice. However, reasonable effort will be made to maintain arrangements as advertised.
All prices provided are on a per person basis unless otherwise mentioned and include local taxes.
Prices do not include tips, personal expenses, cost of drinks, after meal coffee and tea or travel insurance. If in doubt whether something is included in the price of the Experience, please inquire.
4. Requirements to participate in Greeking me Experiences
All Participants will be required to disclose, at the time of booking, or in any case prior to the commencement of the Experience, whether the Participant suffers from any medical condition which may prevent the Participant undertaking the Experience, including, but not limited to, epilepsy, dizziness, limb or back injury, angina or other heart condition, food allergy, dietary requirements or restrictions, severe or uncontrolled asthma, visual impairment, depression or recovering from recent surgery. Given the nature of our Experiences, we are not in the position to guarantee that all nutritional requirements will be met; however, we will make every effort to meet your needs.
Participants acknowledge and agree that they participate in the Experience at their own risk.
We do not include personal insurance with our Experiences. Greeking me recommends that customers purchase individually their own travel insurance (or ask their travel agent). Greeking me will not be held liable for services provided by 3rd parties.
All participants to an Experience must hold a valid ticket, voucher or confirmation letter. Entry may be refused if tickets or vouchers are damaged or defaced in any way or not purchased from an authorised reseller.
5. Children participation
In most of our walking tours, kids (up to 2 per group) below 10 years old participate for free. In case there are more than two kids in a group, an extra adult ticket must be purchased. For 3-4 kids, one extra ticket should be purchased. For 5-6 kids, two extra tickets etc.
Most of our Experiences are child friendly. As far as “the Zorba inside me”, “Night Crawlers” & “Greek Ambrosia” Experiences are concerned, please take into consideration that:
In “the Zorba inside me” Experience you will have the chance to dance in the rhythm of popular folk dances like "syrtaki" & enjoy yourself in an authentic Greek feast. Keep in mind that afterwards we will dine in a traditional place, so make sure your children won’t feel sleepy or tired. Please note that alcohol consumption is strictly forbidden for persons below 18 years of age.
“Greek Ambrosia” is a particularly fun experience for our little friends, especially if they are into cooking. Keep in mind, though, that you should be careful and warn your child about possible dangers in the kitchen. He must follow the orders of the chef & not expose himself to danger of any kind.
The “Night Crawlers” walk will be very easy & fun, as we’ll stroll through the most cosmopolitan and beautiful areas downtown. Since this is a night tour, though, make sure that your little ones won’t feel sleepy or tired! Please note that alcohol consumption is strictly forbidden for persons below 18 years of age
6. Greeking me’s ability to refuse participation
Greeking me reserves the right to refuse any person, for whatever reason, participation in the tour, in its absolute discretion, whether or not they have previously purchased a ticket. A person will be reimbursed for tickets previously purchased should they be refused permission to participate on grounds other than those set out above.
7. Accessibility and Safety - Participant guidelines
It should be noted that local conditions in Greece may differ from those that exist in the rest of Europe or the U.S.A. The state and conditions of some streets may present accessibility difficulties. Access for persons with special needs is not guaranteed. Public areas may not be accessible to persons with special needs.
Participation in our Experiences may require a minimum physical condition, such that you are in the position to walk uphill or climb stairs. Kindly inform us if you have a medical or physical limitation or are undergoing a medical treatment.
Greeking me will not be liable for the personal safety of participants, or for the safety of personal items, nor for unforeseen events and incidents that Greeking me cannot control, prevent or avoid, including (but not limited to) accidents, thefts and illnesses during the Experience. Each participant shall be fully responsible for his/her personal health, medical needs and safety.
We advise you to check your insurance contract in order to determine whether you are covered and to clarify what your travel insurance covers in the case of trips abroad. For their own safety, all Participants must obey the directions and instructions of the Experience guide, must not disturb other Participants or interfere with the Experience guide’s ability to conduct the Experience in a safe manner.
By joining a Greeking me Experience, each Participant is ensuring its own safety by agreeing to:
Stay alert and aware of what’s going on around them at all times and avoid any immediate dangers which they believe pose a risk to them.
Protect themselves from the Greek sun by using appropriate forms of sun protection, including but not limited to a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen during the summer months.
Be adequately hydrated and nourished before, during and after the tour, in accordance with their specific needs and requirements.
Not be under the influence of alcohol, drugs or any other substance that may hinder their ability to observe these Guidelines.
At all times to promptly comply with any directions issued by tour leaders. Athens is a busy, modern city that can be inherently unpredictable. Greeking me responds to that risk by relying on the cooperation of all of its Participants.
