Great Tour if Athens
Whitney_W, Feb 2024
Jimmy was an excellent guide. He called to let us know he would be arriving at our hotel on time for pickup. The car was clean and new. Jimmy knew the city and was happy to share his knowledge. He took us to each sight and gave a quick explanation before we checked it out. Lunch was tasty and he took us for an extra, unexpected stop at the end of our tour. We will definitely recommend this tour and Jimmy to friends and family!

Easy Way to see Athen
Kara_L, Feb 2024
The guide Jimmy was great. The car was very comfortable. It was an easy way see a lot of Greek highlights. My only suggestion is that the location of the lunch was fairly far away and time would have been saved by dinning closer.

One of the best tours we've ever been on - Dallas went out of his way to take care of us!
Jenny_Z, Feb 2024
Truly unforgettable trip in Athens! We saw all of the iconic sights in just half a day, and had a super comfortable experience in a brand new vehicle. But what really elevated this trip was our tour guide Dallas, who explained to us the rich history behind each stop and enriched our knowledge about everything Athens (and trust me, we had a lot of questions!) I also accidentally left something behind during the tour, and Dallas went out of his way to try to track it down, making multiple personal trips, and even shipping it back to us as we have already left Athens. Cannot express our immense gratitude to Dallas, who truly – without even asking – went above and beyond. I've been a lot of tours and this one is really hard to beat, and I'm sure we wouldn't have had as great of a time without our amazing tour guide. Dallas, thank you!

Athens in a day
Sue_B, Feb 2024
We had only one day to spend in Athens, so we booked a private tour . Our guide, George, was very knowledgeable and got us through all the crazy streets of traffic to see all the sights we wanted to see. On our way back to the cruise ship, he took us for a wonderful, traditional Greek lunch. We had a great time!

Carrie_A, Feb 2024
What an absolutely wonderful experience!!! Our tour guide Dimos is a pure gem for his knowledge and love of Greece. He taught us so much and was an absolute pleasure. We were thrilled with our tour and one of the highlights was when Dimos took us to an authentic Greek restaurant at the end of the day. Delicious !!!

Sebastian: The Best!
Yakup_D, Feb 2024
Me and my wife took this tour with our guide/driver Sebastian. The car was a pretty new (and clean) E Class MB and our driver was well really really good! He took us to all of the places that were on the program and beyond. He was very knowledgable and polite. Special thanks to the restaurant he took us. It was a bit of a ride from the city center but it was worth it. Local, not touristic and delicious meals. Thank you for everything. %100 recommended! I am sure that all guides are nice but if you can ask for Sebastian.

Amazing Day in Athens
Megan_L, Dec 2023
Achilles was a great tour guide, he made sure we got to see all the sights we wanted. We had an amazing lunch and got door to door service at all the historical sights. One recommendation would be to buy your own Pantheon tickets, there was a little confusion with the tickets and it would have been faster to pre-buy on our own.

Athens Half Day That Missed Acropolis
Euclides_P, Nov 2023
Our guide from Theodores Travel was excellent. Very knowledgeable , conversational, friendly and professional. It was nearly perfect except for one key item. We did not get into the Acropolis. Our tour was on a Sunday and he informed us that there was no fee to enter on Sunday. This was a new development. As such he said tickets were free but could not be obtained in advance. He informed us late into the tour and we missed entering the Acropolis. He would have given us additional hours however we needed to get back to the ship. This was a key error on his part as getting inside is a key reason to go to Athens.
The guide was very...
