I could not imagine a better experience.
WilliamMark_D, Dec 2023
The guide was polite, courteous and very professional. A photographer, he instantly understood our expectations, knew all the rights spots and offered some intuitive insight when it came to unique compositions. The four hours went quickly, there was no wasted time and I feel this was an amazing value to travel with such a talented and knowledgeable guide. In addition to the photography, he also knew all the history so when we were traveling from site to site, he provided a thorough understanding of the city and it changes throughout history. Manos must be their best guide as I cannot imagine anyone could be any better.
Acropolis at Night
MaryLou_B, Nov 2023
Our tour guide, Kyriakos (Sunday), was professional and personable. He picked us up on time. He reviewed with us the things we wanted to see and also offered additional suggestions/options. His knowledge of Athens, past and present, enhanced our experience. His suggestion for our request to dine near the Acropolis exceeded our expectations. We sat on the restaurant's outdoor terrace which overlooked the beautiful city of Athens with the Acropolis in the background....glowing in light. What a memory! The tour was well worth the money
A magical evening
Deborah_U, Nov 2023
Seeing Athens at night is to see this city in all its glory. From the Acropolis lit up, to a changing of the guard at the barracks, we experienced a magical evening. Our host Andreas, was perfect: funny, friendly, sensitive to Our physical limitations and just downright wonderful. We saw little neighborhoods, the city highlights and learned so much about this beautiful old city. We ended the evening with a delicious dinner at Arcadia. This is a great tour if you are short on time and a marvelous way to see Athens.
Such a great guide!
Kim_K, Oct 2023
Our guide Dimitra was so wonderful! He was fun and knowledgeable. Such a great way to see the city and all the sights

Athens by tail lights
Gaetana_T, Sep 2023
Although our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, and personable, the only lights we saw at night in Athens were AUTOMOBILE TAIL LIGHTS. For atleast half of the tour we sat in traffic. We were only offered water AFTER we purchased our own. Nit at all a good value for the money. I would nit recommend this tour.
Great tour!
Connie_E, Sep 2023
Our tour guide was Babis. He was wonderful. Spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. We chose to skip dinner so we could see more sights. Even got to see the changing of the guards at the Presidential palace. Would highly recommend this tour and ask for Babis! Get to see a lot in 5 hours.
A Wonderful Time With Friends
Robert_Y, Aug 2023

A different perspective
Kristen_T, Aug 2023
Knowledgeable driver/guide. Accommodated our site requests. Showed us some additional sites off beaten path. Plenty of time for pics. Didn’t realize entrance fee for most sites and not included in your cost.
The tour was a great way...
Kimberly_R, Jul 2023
The tour was a great way to get acquainted with Athens on the day we arrived. Our driver was amazing and provided options and advise to help maximize our time.
Night tour with Terry
Ashleigh_M, Jul 2023
This was the best way to see and hear the history of Athens & Greece. Out of the hot summer sun, Terry guided us on a personalized tour where we were able to see so much. On our own we probably would not have noticed/booked as much so we were very grateful for this experience since we were only in Athens for 48 hours.
Athens by Night a Hit!
Dinah_S, Jul 2023
Having dinner on Lycabettus hill at Green Tent restaurant watching sunset was a definite highlight as was the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Terry was a wonderful guide… so knowledgeable!
Fantastic private tour!
Phil_L, Jul 2023

Skip this one and find better ways to enjoy Athens at night.
Jose_C, Jun 2023
Too many hours, very few experiences, but very nice van. The tour started at around 6pm with a non guided visit of the Acropolis for a little over one hour, a quick stop at the modern olympic stadium, the change of the guard at the home of the Prime Minister, and a 2 minute stop on a hill to get a view of Athens, and then a drive to a marina to have dinner. More than half of the tour are activities that you can do on your own. Spending 1:30 hours having dinner as part of the tour is a waste of time and money. Not worth it.
Excellent guide
Beatrice_S, Jun 2023
Nasos our guide around Athens was excellent. He took us to the Acropolis and showed us some off the beaten path sites before dropping us off in a beautiful restaurant on the water. He was warm, friendly and accommodating!
Response from Host, Jan 2024

Perfect evening in Athens with all the highlights.
Jean_T, Jun 2023
We were only staying in Athens for an evening and this tour could not have been more perfect. Olive Sea and our driver, Andreos, communicated perfectly and tailored the evening to help us enjoy the city in a brief time. Andreos was so much fun - giving great historical details and making us laugh! He took us around the city and we stopped at the Olympic Stadium. Afterwards, he took us to a beautiful hilltop that overlooked the Acropolis. We were so mesmerized by the views that we opted to spend time having a delicious Greek dinner at the charming Green Tent. If you are considering this tour, do not hesitate. Our group is my husband, our children, thier signifcant others and myself - all agreed that we could not have imagined a better evening. Thank you Andreos!
Response from Host, Dec 2023

DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR - horrible experience
Stephanie_R, Jun 2023
Really bad experience. Would not recommend this tour to anybody!!!! And…it wasn’t even a tour!!! It was literally a driver who asked us.. “what do you want to see? I’ll drive you around”…I mean it was my husband’s and I first time in Athens (during our honeymoon, nonetheless).. no idea apart from the Parthenon what’s to see…they guy didn’t emphasize on different archeological sites such us The prison on Socrates (which we learned after the fact when we were back in the hotel), he took us to a lounge beach area that it was ok and he even said some really weird and inappropriate comments….really terrible experience for what we paid for. It was basically having an Uber but X10 times more expensive for no reason.
