Best Tour of Athens and Wonderful Tour Guide!
Denise_O, Jan 2024
Dimitris was outstanding! He squeezed in more sites and information than we thought possible in our time in Athens. He was friendly, warm, knowledgeable, and someone whom it was pleasurable to spend all day with. The vehicle was very luxurious and comfortable as well. Sincere thank you to Dimitris! I would highly recommend this tour and guide!

Dimitris was a great guide from the start, warm and welcoming. Provided excellent commentary about points of interest and left the day at our discretion. Highly recommend this tour!!

Great way to hit all the major places in Athens!!!
Christina_C, Dec 2023
Dimitris was great!!! Knowledgeable of the history of Athens and loved all the stories about the Greek Gods. The day we went, the President of Turkey came, therefore, roads were closed and Dimitris made it work so that we did not miss a beat and get caught in traffic. He mentioned the day would only go well based on his luck and we were sure LUCKY that day. We went with my 5 year old and she did well, but she was quite tired at the end of the day. It is a long day of walking and activities. Depending on how eager the family is, it could potentially be too long of a day for some. We ended up not seeing the change of the guards because my daughter was done at the end of the day. Either way, Dimitris was able to adjust the tour to meet the needs of the family!! If you’re looking for souvenir shopping, Plaka was such a cute historical town with many options!! Highly recommend this tour!!!

Athens Private Tour - The Best Way to Go
Raymond_P, Nov 2023
Our tour guide "Socrates" was excellent. Plus, in our private vehicle, he placed us precisely at entrance points for museums, sites, restaurants like a private chauffeur. We left the itinerary up to him, in broad terms, so we could take advantage of his knowledge of the wait times and popularity of the many points of interest in Athens. We got back to the cruise ship on time and had a thoroughly delightful day out.

Outstanding service. Our driver, Demetris did an excellent job driving us around and was on the spot with pick up when we were done in an area. We availed ourselves of a guide through the company as well. Highly recommend Vasso for your trip. She was extremely informative and knowledgeable and made our day!

Our full day tour in Athens was perfect from start to finish thanks to our driver, Dimitris. He is amazingly knowledgeable, helpful, entertaining and has impeccable timing! He suggested a great agenda and moved us smoothly from location to location while sharing so much information about Greek history, culture and the city he obviously loves. It couldn’t have been better! Thank you!

Fantastic Tour
Virginia_B, Oct 2023
Michael our driver and Sotiris our guide were absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for a more memorable and interesting day in Athens. I would highly recommend spending the extra money to have a private guide with you in the attractions. The education and information they provide as you are in the moment is priceless. Elegant Greek Tours communicated every step to us from booking until we arrived for our tour. It was a magical day.
