Good, not great. Expensive.
Thomas_T, Jan 2024
This is a good private taxi around Athens. Other than that, the tour was not much of a tour. The driver is nice and knowledgeable but doesn't take you to the sites or tell you the deep history. There was no wifi in the car. Other than that, the tour met, but did not exceed expectations. Overall, not worth the high price.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
We would like to thank you for the review of your tour, we appreciate that!!! I would like to inform you that your booking included an English -speaking driver having basic knowledge of the history of our country and not a licensed tour guide. Therefore,he is not supposed to accompany you and show you around the museums you may wish to visit. Should you need a tour guide to accompany you, you must make a request in advance. Last but not least, you should have let the driver know that there was not a WiFi connection .However,we would like to apologise for that!!!!!!! This feedback helps us improve our ability to provide you with the best service possible. We look forward to welcoming you again to Athens and and offering you our services!!!!!!

Our driver and guide was...
Dirk_B, Oct 2023
Our driver and guide was informative and did a great job. 4 to 5 hours may not be enough time given how busy the acropolis has become, took an hour in line, and the extent of the museum's display. However; our guide did a good job trying to maximize our time.
Alternative to Athens - Ruins of Corinth
Thomas_D, Oct 2023
An outstanding tour and adaptable. When we realized our group had a duplicate itinerary. The tour operator modified the tour. It was great. Our driver/guide Kostas was outstanding. Highly recommend this tour. I cannot speak of the Athens experience, as we went to ruins of Corinth. One caveat there, climb to fortress is over slippery uneven rocky path.

Comfortable, knowledgeable, patient and personable
Jaclyn_F, Sep 2023
Andreas was a great tour guide. We were on a rushed time schedule and he was patient and showed us a great coffee stop on the way. He knew the perfect timing for things and parked conveniently. Cold waters, van was comfy and clean. I feel like we got a good feel for Athens in our short 3 hours. Would recommend for sure.

Cory_B, Aug 2023
Ted, our driver was amazing! We got lost, and he helped us figure out how to get back. So friendly, so kind and so easy-going! We saw tons of things and could’ve seen more had we’ve been organized ourselves.

Athens
Deanna_P, May 2023
Our tour guide, Andreas, was great. Early, polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. He took us to some great sites in Athens. Unfortunately, we bought Acropolis tickets with him and we're not able to use them since the line to start at Acropolis was over 2 hours!! We wouldn't have enough time:(.

Andreas as your Athens Guide
AMY_O, May 2023
Andreas did a FABULOUS job showing us some of the highlights of Athens. He went above and beyond, giving us details about the city and easily got us to each point we wanted to see. He mapped out the 5 main spots we wanted to see and allowed the perfect amount of time at each landmark. He joined us at the landmarks, giving us the history and background. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to make the most of their time in Athens. We would highly recommend Andreas as your guide and wished we had done other tours with him when we were in Athens. Great guy to have as your guide!

Excelente tour por Atenas
DEYANIRA_O, Oct 2022
George fue un excelente chofer. Nos dio un recorrido maravilloso por los principales lugares de Atenas. El vehículo en el que nos transportó fue súper cómodo; nos explicó brevemente la historia de cada lugar; nos sugirió llevarnos por una carretera panorámica hasta el templo de Poseidon y posteriormente sugirió un lugar para que comiéramos. Ese paseo ha sido de los mejores de nuestra vida!! Definitivamente recomendamos este tour y a George como chofer!!!
