Private Tour Athens
Chuck_H, Oct 2023
Our driver was exceptionally wonderful and knowledgeable. We had a beautiful, relaxing six hour private tour with him. We cannot praise him enough for giving us such a memorable experience!
Well worth the $ for this tour!
Wade_W, May 2023
Well worth the $ for this tour! We flew into Athens a day early for our cruise, and booked a night at the King George hotel. Because of this, cruise line would not provide transport to the ship from our hotel. This tour picked us up at our hotel and allowed us a day of exploration and fun, before being dropped us off at the cruise terminal. AWESOME!
Amazing Day in Athens!
Susie, Apr 2023
Amazing day with our very knowledgeable and professional tour guide/driver Alex. He picked us up promptly at our hotel and discussed options for the day based on our personal preferences. As this was our first visit to Athens, we relied on Alex to recommend the highlights. Off we went with much information provided during our drive to each location. While Alex did not enter the sites with us, he was very clear telling us where to go, what to see, how to contact him and where to meet again. We scheduled a lunch break during our tour (our expense) and enjoyed a most delicious and authentic meal of Greek favorites. He delivered us back to our hotel with suggestions for the next day on our own. Highly recommend experiencing Athens with Alex. Accompanying us with Alex was George, very happy to meet you both. Thank you Alex and George!

Great overview of Athens
Gregory_M, Nov 2022

Neil_M, Dec 2021
Vasilli was friendly helpful and knowledgeable. His car was spotlessly clean. He took us from one side of Athens to the other with ease, we saw all that we wanted to and a few things we didn’t know about

AMAZING driver made tour even more enjoyable!
Angela_J, Jul 2021
Petrol did a fantastic job! It's all about the driver and their personality! We had a great one! He was so accommodating and friendly and an amazing history buff, so knowledgable! The sites were obviously incredible, some dating back to 4000 BC. But they are all ruins so at some point, they all start to look the same. The majority of these places have no trees and thus, no shade. Wear a hat or take an umbrella and you must have water. You will be parched by the end. This is a must-do for first time Athens visitors. And this is a great option for a quick tour. Ask for Petrol!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you for the great feedback! It is so nice to read that you had such a great time with Petros during your Private tour in Athens! As all our drivers, Petros is a professional driver with great passion in his job. He has great knowledge in Greek history and mythology and tries to meet your expectations. Athens has incredible monuments to visit and a huge civilisation to present. Olive Sea Travel is here to organise your tour in a way you will be able to visit every place you wish. We will gladly provide you with our services again. Kind regards, Ioanna Gryllaki
Best Tour EVER
Jessica_A, Jul 2021
We took this tour with the guide, I must say our driver and guide were first class. Kostas, our driver, was amazing with making sure we got exactly what we wanted and needed and was always anticipating what we needed next. If we needed a water he was there before I could say anything. Eva, our guided has spoiled us for any other tour. She explained everything and had dates and facts for any question we had. I would recommend a guide, especially Eva for any tour. My family has 2 teenage boys and she got them so into the history and the entire tour for the entire day. They have been talking about how great the tour was and how it was one of their best memories. Really, how she got them into it was magic. A day none of us will forget. I RARELY write reviews, but this tour with Eva and Kostas was worth every penny and I would recommend to anyone. 20 out of 10!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
We are truly pleased with your awesome review! Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Kostas is an excellent driver who always tries to make the tour an exceptional experience to remember. Eva is a licensed tour guide with deep knowledge in mythology, history and everything concerns Athens and has a great way to impart her knowledge with others. Our aim is to provide you with nice memories that will make you to return one day. We are looking forward to welcoming you again in Greece we love. Best regards, Ioanna Gryllaki
