“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We had a wonderful tour of Athens during a 5 hour stop over before going onto Crete. Vassilios picked us up at the Athens airport and took us down to the Acropolis where we walked around for a couple of hours. During our ride down to the Acropolis we and the children learnt alot about Greece and Athens from Vassilios who was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was particularly good with the children and they learnt alot, from his talks and videos, during the 3 hour tour. We had been somewhat apprehensive about visiting Athens given recent developments as covered in the media but were more than pleasantly surprised with how peaceful it was, and at no time felt unsafe. A truly memorable experience for the whole family! We highly recommend it as a way to see Athens when you have a few hours to put in at the Athens airport (which had nothing to do at really anyway).

“Better than any other”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Because of the unfounded media reports, my wife and I were a little apprehensive about touring Athens. But we were delighted with the most wonderful tour Vassilis Vassalos arranged. Our guide "Mike" was one of the most friendly and knowledgeable person we could have hoped for. He took us to areas of Athens we could not have seen on any other arranged tour. One great stop was at a local restaurant named in English "beautiful" that prepared truely delightful Greek cooking daily. Having made a number of cruises, we desided on a private tour which caters to you only. But most important it doesn't cost much more than the standard cruse line tours that heard passangers like cattle. If you want a truly fantastic experience, ask for Vassilis and "Mike" when in Athens

“Jewish Tour of Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

My wife and I ended our Pacific Princess cruise in Athens and were staying over one night. I was searching the internet for a Jewish Heritage tour of Athens. I found Vassilios Vassalos..
He was waiting for us when we disembarked and after dropping off our luggage and checking in at our hotel, we visited a half dozen sites including a synagogue and the Jewish Museum.Vassilios will give you the history lesson in the car including a video and leave you to visit the site on your own at your own pace. One note - at the synagogue the rabbi did not speak English. The Jewish Museum is a must. He also took us to a small restaurant in a neighborhood for lunch. We were satisfied enough to have him pick us and take us to the airport the next morning.
Vassilos speaks good English, is pleasant, and seems to be very knowledgeable. We feel confident in recommending his service to others.

“Awesome day in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

We had a fabulous tour of Athens with Vassilios. He was prompt in picking us up from our ship and took us everywhere we had requested and then some! He had a wonderful guide (also named Vassilios) meet us to tour the historical areas. This guide was absolutely fascinating and full of information. Very personable also. Vassilios #1 then picked us up again and drove us around Athens in his very comfortable Mercedes. He speaks excellent English and was informative about persent day Greece and its culture. We hada late lunch at a charming local cafe and then some time for shopping in the Placka. We were back to our ship on time and didn't feel we had missed anything important. My friend and I would have liked some additional time to shop but our husbands were relieved we needed to get back on the road :)
