We just spent two great days with Petros with Vassilios day tours. We had just arrived in Athens the night before with a 10 hour time change and weren't too perky, so we took the "half day" Cape Sounion trip the first day and started later at 10:30. Petros was very prompt and very professional. He was exceeding knowledgeable about... More

We used Vasilios for trips from the airport and to Delphi, Argos, and Sounion. Vasilios is a great guy. He will teach you Greek, tell you about Greece - ancient and modern, and always be entertaining. And punctual.

In college I was studied the classics and concentrated on Greece and Ancient Greek language and our trip to Athens was a trip of a life time. We booked three separate trips with Vassilios and it could not have been any better. His car is clean and comfortable and he is a wonderful host and person. He was always early... More

Vassillios drives a Mercedes taxi so we traveled in comfort and style. We enjoyed his knowledge and opens about his city which he obviously loves. We climbed the Acropolis and then were able to visit the new Acropolis Museum whose architecture is as spectacular as the exhibits. He then selected a great place for lunch. We were particularly fond of... More

I came with my husband to Athens for a quick day trip before heading to Turkey and the Greek Islands. I booked a private car tour of Athens with Takis based on his excellent trip advisor reviews - and he did not disappoint! Takis was everything you could want in a tour guide - knowledgeable of the city's history, culture,... More

I ended up doing two tours, and had the airport transfer service with this company. My Tour guide Takis was fantastic. I went West of Athens for my first day, seeing Agamemnon's palace/tomb and going as far as the coast, where we had lunch. My second day was spent going to posiedon's temple south of Athens. Originally i was not... More

We have used this facility for many years and for the first time we actually had Mr Vassilios Vassalos to take us to our cruise ship. As usual we had a very enjoyable transfer and everything was on time. The car was spotless and we had a running commentary of the places of interest on our journey. I would recommend... More

After many private tours, Athens Day Tours has been, by far, the very best - wonderful service and new comfortable luxury vehicle. Our guide, Vassilios is very well educated, speaks extremely good english, was informative and (gratefully) able to engage our teenage daughter along the way. He allowed us to tailor our tour to our own taste without pushing us... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
