A fantastic tour with an exceptional guide
Marcia_K, Jan 2024
Our tour guide Frank was exceptional! He was incredibly engaging, knowledgeable and did a great job of taking care of us. Frank made the experience fantastic by customizing the day to fit our needs and interests. For example, my family eats a vegan diet and he made sure to recommend a restaurant that could accommodate our needs and even went out of his way to take us to the neighborhood where NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo grew up as we are huge fans. This all day tour is a great way to experience the must see sites within Athens. I highly recommend the private tour and when booking ask for Frank, you won't be disappointed.
Amazing day tour at Athens
ramakkumar, Jan 2024
We had a memorable tour with Viator on the full day Athens tour. The driver Mr Panos was extremely courteous and gave us a lot of insight about the significant spots in Athens. Our family of 9 thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Great tour for a day visit
Marlene_M, Oct 2023
We really loved being able to tailor the tour to our interests. Nancy was very helpful and informative. It was a truly enjoyable experience. We learned so much about the city. We would reccomend the tour for anyone with just a day to spend in Athens.

Jimmy is an excellent guide!
Janis_R, Sep 2023
We were guided by Jimmy whose extensive knowledge of Athens and its history was remarkable. Easy-going and gregarious, Jimmy was able to guide us to the top attractions and give us enough time to soak in the rich history of the sites. One suggestion would be to move to the museum a little earlier as there is so much to take in in this magnificent edifice. Please request Jimmy for your private tour…you will not be disappointed!

Great way to see Athens.
David_D, Sep 2023
We had a great time with Mike as our guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny and put in a lot of effort to make sure our day trip was exceptional. In addition to seeing all the sights listed on the tour, he provided great commentary as we drove around Athens of everything we were passing and also had great food recommendations. Would highly recommend this trip.

Athens, yes please!
Jessica_W, Sep 2023
Thanks to this tour, Nancy (our guide) and our driver, we were able to see the highlights of Athens in a short period of time. We really appreciate how Nancy seemed to get us to our destination before the crowds! She thought of everything and remained flexible when a snack break was needed. We able to get an early start which was perfect because it was during record heat. Nancy brought us to a local restaurant which we loved....it was a great day catered to our family.

Our Day in Athens
MaryP_F, Sep 2023
This was a fabulous tour. Jimmy, our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave detailed history of Greece and the historical site we were to see. We went through the sites at our own pace. Recommend a Greek restaurant that was very reasonably priced and delicious food. We had such a great experience. Highly recommend. We started early and would suggest that strategy.

Emad_Y, Jul 2023
Nancy and Costas were simply amazing!!! They arrived at our hotel 15 min before the scheduled time. She knew how to get us places in a timely manner, we were in the front row to watch the changing of the guards, and took us to an authentic greek restaurant. They were professional, lovely, and always had cold water ready for us! Highly recommend this tour group.

A first class tour.
james_O, Jul 2023
Our guide was excellent. He made sure we saw what was important to see, as well as being very knowledgeable of each of the cities features. He took us to a wonderful Greek restaurant, that tourists just don’t know about. It was a great day.

Athens a must see
nmycek, Jul 2023
Our family had a wonderful day touring Athens with Nancy. She was there to greet us and she was knowledgeable about the culture and history. We had plenty of time to see the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, changing of the guards, to eat at a delicious Greek restaurant and shop. We were back on the ship on time. I highly recommend this tour!

Our driver and the tour...
Bhushan_P, Jul 2023
Our driver and the tour guide Nancy took great care of us. She gave us tips on how to watch the changing of the guard ceremony the best way and changed the schedule around so we could better accommodate the crowds. She also took us to a great spot for food that was away from the touristy areas. But the description of the places she told us in the car seemed to be from a script, which made it feel kind of monotone. But she spoke pretty good English and we trusted her to take us to the right places.

Great, relaxing Athens tour
Keyur_P, Jun 2023
Great tour! Panos was really knowledgeable about Athens history and answered all of our questions. He was definitely enthusiastic about explaining everything we saw, and was very personable. He also made a good change to our itinerary on the fly so we wouldn't have to wait long at the Acropolis. Having an air-conditioned van waiting for us at each stop was a must as it was so hot outside (32 Celsius), and we were able to see all the major sites in one day.
