“Nikous Loukous tours reliable and good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

We spent the day in Athens on October 12th 2011. We had booked with Nikous Loukous tours. There were some strikes on this day and some of the ships excursions were cancelled. However Nikous had his driver Dionyysus (Denis) waiting for us. We had been in regular contact with Nikous prior to leaving Australia. We were relieved our tour wasn't cancelled. We were taken to the Acropolis and did his day Athens tour. I can't remember the cost but it was good value and we weren't forced to go to certain factories, like we were on the tour of Ephesus. I would book with him again.

“Efficent and easy way to tour Greece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

My wife and I were visiting Athens during the strikes which meant no public transportation was available. Luckily my wife found Private Greece Tours on TA and booked a day. It was perfect for our one day in Athens before we left for Mykonos and Santorini.

Nikos our driver was prompt and picked us up at 8 am outside of our hotel. He loaded our bags, opened the doors for both of us and we were off on our way to the Acropolis. He was very friendly and answered any and all questions that we had. Being there was no public transportation, the roads were packed full of traffic. He knew all the back ways to get us around. He took us to all the main historical sites and some areas to go shopping. We even stopped for coffee and he insisted on paying for our drinks.

And at the end of the day he took us to the airport so we could catch our flights to the islands. A great value since the night before had cost us 50 euro just to get from the airport to our hotel. If you're only in Athens for a day or two and have the money to not deal with catching buses and subway trains, Private Greece Tours is a great way to see all the main sites with a knowledgeable driver and without getting lost.

“Wonderful Day in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

In October 2011, my group of 67 passengers recently returned from a cruise on RCCL Vision of the Seas, 10 Nights Holy Land Cruise, and visited Turkey (Istanbul and Kusadasi), Israel (Haifa and Ashdod), and Athens, Greece. For Athens tours, after reading Trip Advisor’s great reviews about Private Greece Tours, I decided to contact Private Greece Tours. Nikos Loukas, Private Greece Tours, responded immediately and give his ‘best’ bus rate for my group. So, without hesitation, I booked my group’s full day tour Athens and Cape Sounion with him – a GREAT choice!

Due to taxi strike in Athens, we were concerned about our tour. However, Nikos assured us that our tour will proceed as planned. Nikos and the 2 tour guides were promptly at the port. My group’s (2) buses were split into 2 tours for half a day, i.e. passengers that previously toured Acropolis/Parthenon went to the New Acropolis Museum and the ‘first timers’ in Athens visited the Acropolis/Parthenon, as well as other areas listed on the online brochure, such as walked in the Plaka, etc. As instructed by Nikos, the tour guides timed our visits to the sites to avoid the crowds. We drive along the coast and went to the Temple of Poseidon. Gabriela was our guide in my bus for the day. She was knowledgeable and pleasant. She was very informative about Athens history and the places we visited. We have no issues whatsoever about the full day tour. I definitely recommend Private Greece Tours to anyone visiting Athens.

“Great Personable Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Nikos met the 8 of us outside the cruise terminal and got us through the hustle right to his Mercedes van and off to a great adventure in Athens.
A perfect briefing mixture of present events and history preceded the arrival at each stop throughout the day.
Most of us were interested in photo stops and Nikos enabled us to get some shots by negotiating the van into some interesting locations.
This is a great way to negotiate the bustling streets of Athens up close, and still cover a lot of sights in a few hours at a very reasonable cost.

“PIcked the Perfect Tour Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Four of us went on a cruise in Oct 2011. I did alot of research before booking a private guide for Athens. We decided to contact Nikos Loukas from Private Greece Tours. It was the best decision. Nikos was our guide for the day. He was promptly at the ship and took us to the Acropolis immediately as it was closing at noon. We got there before the crowds. It was wonderful. He drove us all over Athens. He knew how to time our visits. Made sure we got to see the changing of the guards. We learned so much history and saw so much that day. Nikos is very professional and personable. I would highly recommend him and his company.
