Our tour guide Kostas was extremely attentive, making timely stops for coffee and meals. The Delphi site itself exceeded all expectations in scale and extent - make sure you get all the way up to see the largely intact stadium. After viewing Delphi we had a great meal in a little cliffside mountaint town - think Santorini crossed with Salzburg,... More

We have used this company on about 6 occasions for transfers to and from Athens airport to hotels in the centre of Athens. The drivers are always friendly and helpful with questions. Very reliable and always on time.

Our guide Vasilis was so easy to understand and took such good care of us. He was informative and told us so much about the history of Greece and the sites we visited.

Our group of 4 were on a cruise ship. Our goal was to go to the Acropolis, Ancient Agora and stand on "Mars Hill" as well as anything else there was time for. This was accomplished. Added to this was great driving, a nice locals place for lunch, seeing the changing of the guard and a little shopping at the... More

We arranged a one day trip to Meteora and back to Athens with Athens Tours Greece. Our guide/drive Nicholas was outstanding. It was a lot of driving, and the weather was rainy (everywhere except in Meteora!). But, Nicholas was undeterred, giving us a fantastic history lesson as we drove, and stopping at historical sights along the way that were of... More

When you're on a tight schedule with a limited amount of time, it's important to maximize every minute ( remember you need to return to the ship before it disembarks !)

We booked a private guided tour from Athens to ancient Olympia, a long day out but this was somewhere we really wanted to see. Our comfortable car arrived on time with lovely English speaking guide Tonya and super driver Lazarus. Everything went superbly, both guides were welcoming, friendly and efficient.

Tonia and Lazaros did an amazing job of showing us the best of Athens in one day. We went early to the Acropolis to try to avoid the crowds. We enjoyed the Plaka, the viewpoint, the 1896 Olympic Stadium, the changing of the guard in front of the palace, the Acropolis Museum, and wonderful local lunch.

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.
