Great birdseye view of Athens by private car!
EugeneM_E, Oct 2023
Peracles was our driver! Excellent, knowledgeable guide. We learned so much Athenian history as well as what current day life is like in Athens. We highly recommend Peracles for a first rate tour experience. Because of our great satisfaction, we will definitely recommend Viator to all our friends and will continue to use this wonderful, personalized car tour service!

This is an expensive taxi ride
JoLe_H, Oct 2023
Don’t be fooled. A taxi picks you up and takes you to whatever you want to see. There is no knowledge given. While our driver was nice, it would have been nice to have a guide. Save your money & do a hop on hop off.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Hire a car for 5 hours private tour for 120€ with pick up and drop off at your place. He took you to all the sights of the city even in narrow streets where a hop on hop off bus can't reach he gave you all the necessary information for the sites you will visit, we kept what we promised and in addition we give you the possibility to hire an official guide for an extra fee, but you didn't. Do you compare the experience of a private tour with a tour of the city on a bus,? We will not really enter into any comments, we have given you all the information regarding the reservation, obviously the sense of quality and judgment is at a very low level and is not worth commenting on.
Great informative trip
Fiona_U, Oct 2023
Acropolis plus Tour 4hours. Did not read small print initially so got to start of trip and then realised that entry fees where not inclusive. Private tour was not an individual tour guide either. Despite those hiccups our Driver Dimitri was amazing. Friendly knowledgeable and safe driver. Great experience due to the Driver. Tourist police where amazing as they heped us out with initial misunderstanding. Viator helpline person we contacted was rude started shouting at me. When I asked him not to shout as I was asking for an explanation. Never made out it was their fault. Just make sure when you book you read the small print. What is inclusive!

A Great Tour of the Acropolis
David_H, Jul 2023
We had a very helpful and knowledgeable driver who was always there when we finished each part of the tour. He was also very helpful with suggestions on where we could purchase a few things we needed. This is a site that I have wanted to see all my life and we were lucky enough to get to do the tour a few days before the heat became so bad they had to close the site for several hours on two days.

awesome Athens tour!
CAROLYN_B, Jul 2023
We had avery knowledgeable tour guide that shared interesting stories of life in Athens in early days. Based on his recommendation we held up touring the Acropolis in the morning because of long lines. When we returned at 230pm there was no line! BTW, everyone has skip the lines tickets so there is always a long line. Our tour guide recommended an awesome restaurant for lunch. I would highly recommend this tour.

Disappointing
Doris_W, Jun 2023
My error booked this tour and did not realize it was not guided. The driver had no knowledge of different buildings and was unable to answer most of our questions regarding changing of guards at Parliament etc. very disappointing
Response from Host, Jun 2023
We would like to inform you that when you made your reservation, you received all the information about what is included in the tour and what is not. Please note that our wine guides speak English, are familiar with ancient Greek history, but are not official tour guides to accompany you to the archaeological sites. . We also mention that there is the possibility to choose an official guide in case you needed this service at an extra cost, something you did not choose. The fact that you refer to your term indicated some buildings which are simply known to us as cultural heritage and constitute our identity, but for you they are some buildings that you choose a wrong Tour
Andreas To The Rescue!
geoffrey_p, Mar 2023
We were lucky enough to get Andreas as our guide. It was Greek Independence weekend with many road closures and lots of people celebrating. Andreas knew how to navigate Athens anyway; all of the side streets and alternate meeting spots. He was always waiting for us after our walks around the tour sites with a very clean and comfortable Mercedes. He loves his job and his city. We became fast friends and feel as though this could have been a disastrous tour without him, considering the city’s closures. Thanks Andreas!
