We got off a cruise ship in Piraeus and had decided to walk to the Metro. However, after walking quite a ways, we flagged down a taxi.
That is where our "Athens in a Day" tour got kicked off. Yiannis was going to take us to the Acropolis for approximately 20 euros, but then he offered to take us to all the sites in Athens.
Here is how it worked:
Dropped us at the Acropolis...we visited the Acropolis and the Museum and met him where he dropped us off 3 hours later.
At that time we were hungry and asked Yiannis to take us to the Placa to get a bite to eat. He persuaded us to try a place outside the tourist area and that was the best decision we made all day. The place he took us was for locals, had incredible quality and quantity of food, and very reasonable. Also the owner could not be more courteous and was willing to do anything for us. Later we went to the Placa for a drink and they were sooooo rude over there.
Then Yiannis took us to the Temple of Zeus, the Stadium, the Parliament, The University and finally a church up on the mountaintop overlooking Athens.
Then returned us to our ship.
I promised Yiannis I wouldln't put the price he charged us in the review.....but it was a definite bargain.
If you are in Athens for a day, please give him a call, or arrange for him to work for you by email. What you will save in food costs alone will pay for his services for the day.
