Just returned from a business conference in Athens. We had one free day and booked a private tour to Delphi on very short notice. One of the BEST travel decisions I've ever made. Thank you, Antonius, for a spectacular day. This trip up into the mountains in search of the oracle was certainly worth the time and more than worth... More

He made sure we... More

Our group of 6 adults and an infant had a great tour of Athens. We would never otherwise have been able to see and experience what we did in the time available. Alex was a great guide and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The van was modern and very comfortable.

We had a wonderful tour with our driver Alex. My family (including two teenagers) really enjoyed the experience. Thank you so much Alex - I agree with the other comments that by the end of the day we felt as if we were riding around with a friend. I thoroughly recommend this trip as an introduction to Athens.

On Jan. 11, I was accompanied by my private tour guide Helen and driver Lazaros. They had a full schedule and showed me most of the historical sites at Athens. Helen even walked around the Panathenaic Stadium with me. When we were at the Temple of Zeus, it was so cold and windy that Lazaros gave me his jacket so... More

We spent a day with Apostolis in Athens (Dec. 27th). From the start, the day was organized, informative and fun! Apostolis showed us so many things in Athens we would not have seen on our own; he got us to the Acropolis well before the heavier crowds; we had time to visit every site at our own pace; and the...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
