Private tour of Athens
Chris_H, Nov 2023
Tour of the Acropolis and Parthenon. Our driver Kostas was excellent and showed us sites we would not have gone to on our own. The statue of the glass runner, one of the oldest olive trees, the highest hill in Athens, were some.

Sunny afternoon in Athens
Kurt_E, Nov 2023
My nephew and I signed up for a private half day tour of Athens, which took place on a beautiful sunny afternoon in November. Our guide was Alex, who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city, it's culture and history. I really wanted my nephew to experience the climb up to the Parthenon which I had done many years prior. Due to some mobility issues with me, he had to go up alone, so Alex and I went to get a coffee and have a chat. We also went to the museum at the Acropolis, the changing of the guards, Lycabettus Hill and the Olympic Stadium. All in all it was a great afternoon.

We did not have a tour...
Barbara_S, Nov 2023
We did not have a tour The tour guide did not contact us the night before as George did in Santorinn When I contacted him the next morning and told him that there was confusion I asked him if he would come back he refused and was quite rude We did not experience Athens even though we paid for it
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hello Barbara, you mention that there was a confusion but you don't explain to the community that you were confused and you didn't show up at the time of the pick up. According to your booking details the pick up time was at 10:00, your driver send you a text message at 9:45 to let you know that he is already at the port and waiting for you to disembark, you didn't response, we called you several times but you were out of phone service. Furthermore, we sent emails through viator platform at 10:15, 10:30 and 10:45 trying to find you and letting you know that your driver was still there waiting for you, we didn't hear back from you so finally at 11:10 we decided to release your driver. You called us at 13:20 demanding your driver to come back because you wanted to take your tour but at that time it was too late, your tour was supposed to end at 14:00. You requested for a refund but since it was not our fault that you didn't take your tour we rejected your request and so did viator since we sent them the GPS tracker of our vehicle showing that your driver was at the port and waiting for you for more than an hour and you didn't show up. We aslo provided viator with a screenshot of the drivers' phone as a proof that the driver texted you at 9:45. I am really wondering how viator allowed you to write a review since they had already investigate your case... Ls Tours and Transfers Team

Best Tour of Athens!
Mark_J, Nov 2023
This was an exceptional tour and Peter made it even better! Peter was attentive to our needs and showed us the highlights plus more! Peter tested our Greek history knowledge and gave us so much deep historical accounts of the sites. I cannot recommend this tour enough! I was grateful that Peter knew the roads well and navigated easily through the city. Peter was phenomenal!

Great tour if you have limited time
Celine_M, Oct 2023
Our guide Alex was great, arrived on time in a spotless SUV. We had to change the itinerary somewhat as my mother is disabled, but he accommodated all changes happily, and used his local knowledge to help us avoid the crowds at main sights. He was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He took care of my mother beautifully. The tour was excellent for people who want to see the main sights but don’t have much time. Highly recommend Alex and the tour!

Wonderful Athens morning
Marlene_F, Oct 2023
Alex our guide made our morning visit to Athens so enjoyable. This truly was a private tour as we were the only two in his car and he looked after us so well making sure we got to see the main places in Athens. He was very knowledgeable about the city he loved

No Entry into Acropolis
Ishbell_H, Oct 2023
Truly disappointing because we could not get entry tickets to see the Acropolis when we arrived there…. We did not know dated & timed entry tickets must be purchased well in advance!!
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Hello Ishbell_H, We are really sorry to hear but as described (see exclusions) Acropolis tickets and Museum tickets are not included, you never asked for our help so we are not responsible if you didn't manage to get Acropolis tickets. On September they started timezone tickets in order to avoid krowding, unfortunately when you arrived there there was no availability. Ls Tours and Transfers Team
Awesome

Five hours in Athens…
Marcia_C, Oct 2023
We highly recommend our driver, Apostolos. His English is perfect and he gave us a great many facts about Athens. You can tell he enjoys showing off the highlights of his city. Our tour guide was a little disappointing however. Her English was not as good. She spoke too fast and she was texting and talking to her friends (other guides). When she talked about the surroundings and facts she did not make eye contact. As we parted she was in a hurry. If our guide had been more interesting we would have gotten our money’s worth. But this tour was a little expensive considering the time we had before embarking on our ship. I would book another tour with this company though especially asking for the same driver.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Hello Marcia, Thank you so much for your time and for leaving this review! We would like to let you know that the certified guides are independent they don't work for us, that's why it is not included as service, when requested we try to find an available one. Thank you for letting us know so as we won't book again that guide for our guests. Looking forward to seeing you again! Ls Tours and Transfers Team
