Above a 5 star tour of Athens
Blenda_W, Feb 2024
Our tour guide, Fotis, was the best part of our tour. As we traveled to our destination, he told us where we were going and gave us historical information and the significance/importance of what we were going to see at each location. He provided us ample time to see everything we wanted at our own pace and gave us a good meeting spot to return to after we texted him we were ready. He took us to a great place for lunch that had amazing Greek food based on what we wanted to eat. This experience was the best tour we have had in the past week and a half and we have been on over 6 experiences in other cities like Paris, Rome, and Pompeii. It was paced well, informative and well done. If we could have given more than 5 stars we would have! The price we paid was securely worth it!
A great day tour of Athens
Daniel_B, Feb 2024
Our driver/guide Fotis was terrific. He was prompt, explained where we were going, gave a running commentary as we drove from one site to the next. We had plenty of time at each location.
Great Private Tour of Athens
Dean_M, Feb 2024
We had a great day of seeing all the famous sites of Athens. Our tour guide Alexander was amazing! His knowledge of the sites and history of Athens made for an incredible day. I would highly recommend this tour with him!
Juan_A, Jan 2024
As it was the first time for the group of students from the United States to visit Athens, I think the experience was very positive and quite pleasant, the different monuments of the city, the explanation provided by the excellent guide, the equally high-quality transportation and the time it lasted, as well as the flexibility with the group in terms of stops, photos, drinks and lunch were very good.
Great Tour of Athens
Lois_H, Nov 2023
Great tour of Athens! Our driver, Panos, gave us a great tour. He gave us a lot of information about Greece, as well as showing us all the best of Athens. When he dropped us off to tour the beautiful historic sites he was always on time to pick us up.
Alexander the Great…best guide ever!
HIldy_H, Nov 2023
Alexander was fabulous! His knowledge of Athens was amazing and we learned so much history! The tour was done at our pace (I have a walker) and he catered to our every need. Alexander was funny, down to earth and super friendly. We had the most enjoyable day we possibly could imagine! We saw everything on our bucket list and more. Thank you Alexander for a fantastic day!
Aristotle was Awesome!
Rodney_L, Oct 2023
We couldn't have asked for a better private guide than Aristotle. He showed us many parts of Athens and was so patient and kind we couldn't believe it. He was a history major and shared a lot of interesting tidbits with us. He was very concerned about our comfort and that we saw everything we wanted to see. He really is a remarkable young man, and we were lucky to have him as a guide to get the most out of our trip to Athens. We would highly recommend this tour.
Full Tour of Athens
Donald_J, Oct 2023
Our tour guide, George was outstanding and very knowledgeable about the history of Athens. My husband wan’t up for the walk at all the sites. He got as close as possible to all sites. He even took pictures. The tour was outstanding.
Best tour we had!
Erik_P, Oct 2023
Aristotelis Karampelas was an amazing guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable having a formal education in history, answering all of our questions as well as prompt, friendly and polite. He was happy to adjust our itinerary when we requested it. When we saw the changing of the guard ceremony he had inside information as he was one of the honor guards during his time in the army! It was the best tour we had in almost a month of touring Europe. You will not regret requesting him.
Great day in Athens with a wonderful driver!
MariaBeatriz_P, Oct 2023
The tour was perfect! It was extremely convenient to be picked up at the cruise port and dropped off at the airport. I highly recommend Panos. He’s a great driver and very knowledgeable.
Full Day Athens Tour Exceeded Our Expectations!
Gary_S, Oct 2023
We had a wonderful and very memorable full day tour of Athens. Our driver/guide, Fotis, was amazing. He could maneuver through the streets getting us to all of the historical sites as we had hoped in plenty of time to enjoy Athens as it should be enjoyed!! Thank you Viator for another amazing experience!!
Athens is over crowded
Teresa_C, Oct 2023
Good thing this tour purchased the comb tickets in advance. We skipped the long long line to visit the places. So many tourists. Our driver is good to explain some basic information. Do enjoy the drop off & pick up convenience. Would like to have the tour company use Whatsapp to confirm pick up time & location on all the tours thur Viator the day before departure.
Ancient and modern Athens brought to life!!
Brian_D, Oct 2023
First time in Athens with high expectations! And they were all met! The key to our private tour was our guide, Aris. As a history major and former member of the prestigious Presidential Guard, Aris brought ancient history and current affairs to life. Highly recommend this tour (especially if you are fortunate enough to have Aris as your guide!!) Brian and Rita, Canada
First Class Experience with Aristotelis!
Andrew_L, Oct 2023
My wife and I had fantastic experience seeing some of the highlights of Athens! Our tour guide (Aristotelis) was full of knowledge of the city and its history. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide! Thank you Aristotelis for an unforgettable experience.
Knowledgeable and impressive tour guide! We hit the jack pot!
Lori_J, Sep 2023
Hit all the landmarks in Athens and then some! It was a memorable experience! Thank you, Aristotelis K.!
Our Tour guide simply...
Donald_C, Sep 2023
Our Tour guide simply made our full day Tour of Athens both educational, enjoyable and memorable. Aris is the consummate professional and a history major graduate of the local University. He is full of many facts and was able to craft the entire Tour to our desires! We have already recommended this Tour to several couples from our home town of Charleston SC whom arrive this weekend (9/23/23) in Athens. Our Athens One Day tour far exceeded our expectation! 😊👍
Awesome and highly recommend with private guide
Carol_A, Sep 2023
Our private tour guide, Maria, was fantastic. She was kind, interactive, so very knowledgeable and extremely professional. They picked us up at the hotel. We strongly recommend hiring a private tour guide, she made such a difference in making everything come to life. We appreciated the flexibility the driver and tour guide provided us with small changes we made to our stops. We highly recommend (especially with the private tour guide).
All Athens sites in a day.
Kenneth_D, Sep 2023
Aristotle was great. Showed us all the sites listed with quite a few additional ones. The highlight was the backstage changing of the guards. He was a former member of the guards so we saw a special showing. All the main sites were covered and we had as much time as we needed. Aristotle was personable, extremely knowledgeable . Worth every penny. Would have taken days to see all the sites otherwise. Thanks!
Lovely private Athens tour
NATALIE_A, Sep 2023
Aristotelis was just lovely. So informative, his knowledge was so good. The transport was clean and he even cleaned after all the mud and sand we stepped into the van as it poured with rain. he had our tickets for all excursions ready for us. he treated us to a private changing of the guards and recommended a lovely fish place for lunch. He was just awesome. We saw all we needed to see just a pit it was bad weather - no fault of anyone.
Worth to pay with transfer
MingChuCatherine_Y, Sep 2023
Panos the driver is an experienced and responsible guide as well. He is punctual in every pickup and run smoothly . This private tour is worth to pay. We have a comfortable and relaxed tour with transfer to and from the cruise terminal. Thanks again Panos.
