“just like family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The very pleasant initial transfer from the airport to our hotel in Athens made booking a day trip to Delphi an easy decision. The full day trip to Delphi and the monestary Ag. Loukas with Makis (the same driver) proved to be a terrific experience. I felt as if we were cared for as if we were family, and treated to an unbelievable Greek experience. We had part of a day in Athens at the tail end of our trip, and were treated to a 1/2 day tour to Sounion with George-- including visiting a lesser known theatre near the Athens riviera that we had to ourselves and dining in a tranquil harbor town. Priceless memories at incredibly affordable prices.

They really make you feel like you are one of the family, every step of the way.

“The only company I would ever use!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

A group of 4 of us went on a girls getaway to Athens in November 2012. We contacted the hotel who passed us George's Taxi contact information. From the very start we had nothing put 5 star service. Great communication and excellent prices too with no hidden extras like some companies. We arrived at the airport and George himself was waiting for us and took most of our bags. The car was very nice, clean and fresh and he had even got bottles of water in the car just in case we were thirst, which we thought was going that extra mile. George was also knowledgeable on Greek history and we found his stories and information engrossing! We never had to pay a penny upfront and we just paid at the end of our journey when we reached the hotel.

Jump to our return day because we had booked with them to return as well. Again George himself greeted us very promptly also and took our bags for us. We had left very early for the airport and we were telling George we had missed out on going to the highest point in Athens. He told us there was plenty of time and he would detour and take us there on the way to the airport and there was no charge. We were amazed! Not only did he not ask any extra, he took as all the way up and told us so many stories of the history of the area, we didn't want it to come to an end! It was such a shame we didn't take a private tour with him as I can only imagine it would have been worth every penny. George also took photos of our whole group and he was just so friendly and helpful it was almost as if a friend had picked us up and took us back to the airport. His son who responded to all our e-mails was also very curious and helpful and very friendly. He even e-mailed us thanking us for our custom and hoping to welcome us back again in the future.

Overall I would love to give George's Taxis and Private tours 10 stars because this really in a family company that goes above and beyond for their customers. We plan to return to Athens in the future and we will only being booking with them for our transfers and the next time we will be taking a private tour as well for sure. Thank you once again to George's Taxis. If anyone is wanting to contact them the website is www.taxigreece.com or e-mail georgetaxitours@yahoo.com

“Great car tours and transfers in Greece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We had booked George to pick us up at the airport for a stress free arrival and departure. He was on the spot to pick us up and on the way to the airport he mentioned the tour services. We had planned to visit Mycenae and Delphi by bus, but since his price was only a few Euros more, we took him up on it. That was a fantastic decision. First we took the day trip with George to Delphi, where he took back roads to see places tour buses don't go. Best of all, he brought us to a tiny Taverna with a spectacular view of the Gulf of Corinth for lunch. Then Spiros drove us on a Mycenae tour that included Corinth, Epidaurus, and lunch at the beautiful seaside city of Napflia, and lots more. Both drivers were fountains of information on Greek history, culture, art and lots more. I would highly recommend for all of their services.
