“Michael and Stratos are 5 stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had our first visit to Greece earlier this month, but only five days. We decided to not attempt to find our way around a new city on our own, but rather tap into the knowledge and experience of locals by using taxi-guides. It was a great choice. Michael met us at the airport, and by the time we arrived at our hotel, we felt very comfortable with him and with our plans for the next day. Michael gave us an overview of Athens the next morning, choosing more wisely than we would have on our own, to start our day earlier rather than later. After giving us some historic perspective on the Acroplis, he set us on our way up to the Parthenon. We arrived before the great crowds, and the temperature was comfortable, not as hot as they would have been had we departed later in the morning. Then we moved on to Athens, the city. Michael chose highlights to show us, and to give us an idea of things to do on our own the next day, and also how to get around on the fabulous metro system. The afternoon took us to old Corinth, a lovely little town with many sites still under study and reconstruction, followed by a delicious, generous lunch at a favorite restaurant of Michael's. He would always point out places of interest or stop along the way for interesting things.

After two days on our own, Stratos met us at our hotel for a half day drive along the coast, a stop at the Temple of Poseidon, lunch at a seaside restaurant, and then to drop us at the airport.

Both Michael and Stratos were congenial, knowledgeable, fluent in English, and delightful companions. No question that we will contact them next time we plan a trip to Greece, which we would be delighted to re-visit!

“Very reliable, safe driver.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Michael collected us as arranged from Athens airport, with a transfer to our hotel in Athens for one night.

He then took us, the next day, from Athens to Delphi. He even provided a DVD of Greece to watch in the car. It was lovely talking to him and his colleague, Stratos, (on the return journey), about Greek life, politics etc etc.

Very clean car, excellent service. We would definitely use Michael again!

“Excellent tour of Athens & Corinth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We were a party of 5 with 3 adults including my mother and 2 children aged 13 &14. We found Michael to be extremely helpful and responsive to our emails prior to the tour and accommodating when Carnival Cruises cancelled the trip altogether and we had to re book a different date with very little time in between. Our driver was George and we found him to be most helpful and courteous even providing drinks in an esky for our convenience. We specifically wanted a Christian based tour that was informative and we found both Michael and George had extensive knowledge of facts and history as we had the pleasure of both accompanying us on our tour. Michael is passionate about Greece and the ancient world with an extensive knowledge of events and mythology. George also had terrific knowledge of Corinth and the events surrounding the canal and old city. As a port 1 day trip (from a cruise) I highly recommend this as the way to go. If you have longer in Athens and are able to spend a few days out and about then I would recommend using Michael's tour to go further abroad (like Corinth, Delphi etc) and do Athens on your own. Athens is fairly accessible on foot or sightseeing tourist train if you stay in the Plaka area and you have time to go at leisure to the acropolis,museums etc.The tour to Corinth and further with Michael would be a treasure as Michael is happy to talk about life in Greece and answer questions and the distance gives you this opportunity not to mention his passion for the areas you pass through. If however your stay is time constrained like a 1 day stop then you cannot go past Michael for giving you a wonderful, informative tour that captivates the highlights of Athens.

“Wow what a trip to Greece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Michael is awesome, very knowledgable of history and took us to many local treasures that you would not find on your own. His personality is awesome and very flexible and willing to stop for photos, etc.

I can't say enough
