Driver/Guide made this an above the top experience
James_B, Nov 2023
Our tour guide (driver) John went out of his way to to make our time with this tour exceptional and personal. He was very flexible and kind and showed us parts of Athens the normal tourist wouldn't see. He even took us to a local fast food eatery where all the drivers eat for a great, low cost lunch. What a wonderful guy who left us with memories of Athens we will treasure forever.

Kevin_S, Nov 2023
Our guide for the day was Sylvia—having someone like her is the only way to see Athens! She was energetic, enthusiastic, incredibly knowledgeable about the history, architecture, politics, and culture of Greece over the millennia. Just an amazing experience thanks to her. We really highly recommend seeing this amazing city with her or someone like her.

Loukas did a great job
Julie_E, Nov 2023
We took the tour on Sunday Nov 5th. It turned out to be a free day at the Acropolis. The crowds were crazy so we chose to skip it and go on our own the next day (turned out to be a great decision). Our driver Loukas tried to take us to Zeus' temple but there was a protest going on in the city center so he took us to see the Greek Rivera. There was an air show going on at the time. Overall the tour didn't go at all as planned but Loukas did a great job of changing things up as the day went on. We did get to Zeus and some other sites. With travel you just have to roll with it.
Great Tour

Fun day

Great job by our tour guide. The Acropolis was amazing. The Zeus statue was a disappointment. Changing of the guard and Olympic stadium were also amazing. Good day.

Perfect Athens Tour!
Patricia_B, Oct 2023
This was our best tour in Greece. John, our tour guide, picked us up at the cruise terminal and wowed us the entire tour. He gave us info on all of our stops and drove perfectly through the streets of Athens. I highly recommend this company and John....

Athens in one day
Susan_C, Oct 2023
The key to making this a worthwhile tour was having an experienced guide take us to the sites. We were lucky to get a wonderful guide who made all the sights come alive for us and she timed everything so well - even taking us to a very local and very good spot for lunch. The expense of this tour covers only the driver - since the cost of the sights and the guide are all extra. That being the case, this was a very expensive experience - but the only way for us to get the most out of our one day in Athens.

Best sites to see in Athens
Jan_T, Oct 2023
This was an outstanding day touring the sites in Athens. Our tour guide took us to some sites that weren't listed on the original tour itinerary that gave us a real feel for the history and culture of Athens and Greece.

Excellent Athens tour
Sherry_M, Oct 2023
John our driver was most excellent! He is very knowledgeable and shared his information as we went from site to site. He knew when the best time to visit to avoid the big crowds. I have some mobility issues and he did his best to get us as close as possible to each archeological site. We were very impressed with his professionalism.

Amazing Tour
Carrie_B, Sep 2023
We enjoyed a beautiful day in Athens thanks to our driver/tour guide George. We felt he went above and beyond to secure our proper tickets for local attractions and he was always prompt to pick us up at our venues we toured. His rich historical knowledge of Athens and all of Greece he shared with us during our ride between historical sites made our day extra enjoyable. He knew what we wanted to tour or see in Athens and he knew the exact route to make our tours easy and enjoyable. He even recommended some of the best food in town and dropped us off right in front of that restaurant. He was so pleasant and kind to us and we wish we could give him a 10 star rating. If we ever returned, we would hopefully contract with him again. We highly recommend him to tour you through Athens and are grateful he was an amazing driver/guide.

Fabulous tour
Linda_W, Sep 2023
George was a fabulous guide for us. He helped us decide what to do, but left the decisions to us. I have a disability, and he did everything he could to make things easier for me! He was a great driver and very courteous to others. He also gave us a lot of history of Greece and Athens in particular. Very thankful for our time together!

Louis_D, Sep 2023
The driver was excellent. Was a little disappointed that the guide was restricted and could not leave vehicle. He drive us around and explained as much as he could. When we went to certain locations we were on our own. A lot of money for this tour. Tour guide was great
