“Excellent Shore Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We were 5 in our group and were met by Demitris, who was our driver. He had excellent knowledge so we did not need a guide. At the Acropolis we did a self tour . We visited the Acropolis and Cape Sounion. Dimitris made us very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the one day in Ahthens. Potoula helped us organize the excursion and she was very efficient and prompt with the emails prior to the trip. We would not hesitate in recommending the services of Greek Taxi-Athens.

“Great Taxi Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We used PK Travel for airport pick up and a day tour the following day. Potoula was great to deal with when making the arrangements, quick to answer all my questions and very responsive in all emails. Konstantinos looked after us on both days. Lovely man and great personality! First day met us at the airport - with a big smile and terrific greeting. He looked after four of us for a half day tour which actually ended up being almost a day. Spoke fluent english and made the day fun! Extremely knowledgeable in all things greek. Mid morning he bought all of us the traditional greek and before dropping us off stopped to buy us a box of backlava (yum yum).

Tip: We had four of us with two large men and in hindsight would have been better to have requested a mini van as we were all a little squashed in the mercedes.

Will defintely recommend them to friends and family. Thank you for a great time!

“Greek Taxi Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We visited Athens in connection with a cruise on November 5th, 2012. Coincidentally the first day of a local Taxi / Bus / Tram drivers general strike. Paul emailed to let us know the "taxi" portion of our tour would not work, but that we could pool our activities with other reservations from our ship into a "mini-bus" tour. After a few calls on the ship, that is exactly what we did. Our group of 6 met Paul and his son Demetris at the cruise terminal with his nice new Mercedes "sprinter-type" van. The van seats 14 including the driver, although the 4 in the rear would need to be, or will become, very close friends. So with only 6, we were very comfortable. Demetris was very friendly and with excellent english, could communicate well with our multi-national assortment of folks. Although he said he was not a guide, he provided alot of basic information about the city and history as well as navigating the short cuts and finding additional off the agenda things to see and do - based upon our preferences. Notably, changing of the guard, alternate view of the Acropolis from a neighboring higher hill, a great casual Gyro stand near the plaka, and a terrific baklava bakery on the way back to Piraeus.

We all agreed that our "modified" taxi tour with Demetris had been the best of all the tours any of our group had taken on the whole cruise. Thanks to Demetris and Paul who made the extra effort in strange circumstances to accommodate our group and give us a fantastic full day of Athens!

“Athens By Taxi - Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

While arranging a tour with Athens By Taxi, I found them to be very quick and responsive in all my e-mails and as our group got larger, they were quite willing to accommodate us as long as they had sufficient notice in order to have the appropriate sized van.

We had pre-arranged to be met at Pireaus Port for a full-day tour of Athens in the morning and a drive out to the scenic Cape Sounion in the afternoon.

The driver, Dimitri, was right on time at 7:30 am at the port of Pireaus and the nine of us in our group immediately got seated in a lovely Mercedes Benz van with our luggage in the rear of the van. Dimitri first took us to see the Acropolis, but we decided against going up to the hill as it was raining and therefore the stones would have been slippery. Instead he took us to the amazing New Acropolis Museum, which is a "must see". He then drove us around to the various sites in Athens and later took us out of the city to a lovely restaurant where we had a Greek lunch. After lunch he drove out to see the Temple of Poseidon which is a most scenic and relaxing drive out of the city. All along Dimitri explained the various attractions. He is extremely knowledgeable in mythology and Greek history and speaks English fluently He was very patient with us and we never felt rushed in any way.

I would highly recommend this this taxi service for anyone who is looking for a relaxing way to see Athens and the outskirts.

“Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I was met with a smile and on time off my ferry from Syros - Returning to Scotland after a year of working on the Island, and with my dog Sunny, who I had adopted - It was comforting to receive such excellent service in getting both of us to the airport in time for our flight. The entire journey to get back to Scotland took us around 2.5 days, so to have received such brilliant and welcoming service near the start of our travels certainly put us at ease!! Thank you so very much! :-D x
