          Magical Meteora Monasteries
          Amazing trip! Our host Sophia and driver Fanis were punctual and took incredible care of us. We had a comfortable drive to Meteora, with interesting stops along the way. The monasteries in Meteora are something you will never forget. Our guide Harry was incredibly knowledgeable. The hotel was lovely. Highly recommend this trip! Note, ours did not include Delphi.

          Most efficient way to get the most of Athens!
          We wouldn’t have been able to replicate this tour on our own as efficiently and effectively as we were able to on this tour. Sophia was very knowledgeable and we appreciated the comfort of the air-conditionined luxury van. We appreciated the tour so much!

          Amazing way to experience Greece!
          Right at the top I will get to the point and say I could not recommend CAT Taxi more highly. When you think about trying to see as much as possible while on a vacation you cannot go wrong with this tour company. They worked around our schedule and what we wanted to see. They were always on time and flexible if plans had to be tweaked. We not only saw the main attractions but they brought us to unique points of interest (like the bridge picture I attached) we would never had thought to visit on our own. Every second counts on a vacation and from their expertise we were able to maximize every moment. Our tour van was extremely clean and comfortable. It was a nice comfort after a long day of stairs to fall back into one of the van's seats. All of this was done while Fanis was a safe and respectful driver even under the most challenging conditions (driving into the mountains of Meteora requires some special skills). Our guide Sophia was always ready to answer our questions with patience and curiosity. I miss the two of them! If you are lucky enough to get that pair you are in for an unforgettable trip. Thank you again CAT Taxi!

          Great Tour!
          We had a great tour with Panos. The drive was great and we were comfortable . Our kids are 11,9 and 6 and they enjoyed the whole trip as well. Panos was very easy to communicate with and took very good care of us and we were able to get some great photos too. All the stops along the way were awesome for food and sightseeing . Panos also pointed out many other places and provided us with interesting information along the way. It was great planning this outing with Terry and we highly recommend them for tours.

          Best of the best!
          Terry and his team are top notch. They were thorough, to the point, extremely courteous and on time. I loved how he always confirms every detail of your trip to make sure things are seamless for you. I highly recommend them. I wish we had more time to explore Greece to utilize their services more. Without a doubt this company knows how to take care of their customers by providing safe and reliable top notch service.

          CatTaxi
          Terry at CatTaxi was OUTSTANDING. We found him on the Greece Travel Planning website. I communicated with CatTaxi via phone, text, and email, six months before our trip to Greece. The drivers, the van, the guide, etc., were perfect. There were 7 people in our party and we were very impressed by the professionalism and kindness of CatTaxi. HIGHLY recommend this company. We loved Cape Sounio, the Athens City Tour, and the tour of the Acropolis.

          Meteora is a MUST
          An amazing place. The pillars at Meteora are unbelievable unless you see them with your own eyes. Truly magical, and you can understand why this is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our tour did not include Delphi, but a sunset tour in Meteora, two monasteries, the cave dwellings, and Theopetra cave. Also saw some stone arch bridges, a waterfall, and Thermopylae museum on the way up! Don’t let anyone tell you that the winter is a bad time to visit! Although some of the restaurants and accommodations were closed, it was the perfect time to visit if you don’t like crowds. We were often times alone or one of only a handful of people. Our guide, Yannis, was amazing and took great care of us! Would highly recommend this tour!!

          2 Day Meteora & Surrounds Tour
          If you are considering booking Cattaxi - please don't hesitate!! My wife and I were greeted by Dimitris and had the most wonderful 2 days. We highly recommend the 2 day tour in order to enjoy the marvelous sunset and spectacle that is Meteora. We not only learnt about the various locations and histories of the sites we visited, but we gained a priceless insight into Greek culture and left the tour with a new friend and appreciation for Greece. Many days after we left Greece all we could talk about was the wonderful experience. When we return we will 100% book another tour.

          Cattaxi --Completely customer-focused experience! Service Excellence!
          I traveled to Greece in August 2023 with family and friends. We were a group of 6 adults and had planned on being in Athens for 3 1/2 days prior to beginning our 7-day Greek Island cruise from the port of Athens. In reading travel blogs and facebook group pages, Cattaxi showed up in numerous recommendations with great reviews. After planning my entire itinerary, it made sense to me that I should contract with one company to handle our 9 different legs of transportation (to the airport, the port, and on various excursions we booked in and around Athens). I reached out to the Terry at CatTaxi, and presented my proposed itinerary. From that moment, I experienced what I will call, "concierge" service. Terry's passion IS customer service excellence and it was evident in every communication that we had together via phone, text, and email. He provided recommendations, suggestions, and most importantly, gave me confidence that he would provide the very best experience for us. He did not disappoint. Our first experience was on my birthday and Terry sent a luxury Mercedes Sprinter van to our hotel with a most competent driver (Fannis) and a lovely guide (Sophia) to take us down the Athenian Riviera with our final destination being Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. (Don't miss that tour because the sunset is spectacular). On the way down to the Cape, we stopped for a swim and a champagne toast at Lake Vouliagmeni, and spent about an hour there taking in the beautiful scenery. After touring the Temple of Poseidon, we traveled back up the coast and had a lovely dinner. Unbeknownst to me, Terry had arranged for the restaurant to present me with a birthday cake at dinner—an incredibly thoughtful gesture. Terry reached out to his network and arranged for another driver to assist us with an excursion when we traveled to Thessonaliki, the first stop on our cruise. That driver was also excellent. Upon our return from the cruise a week later, Sophia and Fannis met us at the port and took us back into Athens as we had a 6-hour wait prior to our flights back to the U.S. In Athens, we visited other sites, had lunch, and met our drivers for our final leg back to the airport. Of the numerous choices that were available to us for tours and transportation for our Greek Odyssey, selecting CATTAXI was the best decision I made in planning this trip. Terry, and his competent staff were the glue that held this all together and made this vacation unforgettable! I highly recommend this approach and THIS company when visiting Athens. While it cost more than public transportation, the peace of mind that pre-planning with Cattaxi offered, made the vacation headache-free. Thank you Terry, Sophia, and Fannis for helping to make my milestone birthday and vacation trip to Greece so wonderful.

          Less stress and right in time
          Used the service for a pickup from Piraeus and then later for a ride to the airport to fly home. He was waffling between taking the metro for both and decided to just splurge a bit. Totally worthwhile because I didn’t have to be hyper aware of my surroundings for the entire trip. Booked online then used WhatsApp the day before to confirm that both pickups were all set. Responded right away to the WhatsApp message.

        Such wonderful service! We had very quickly friendly service when we were picked up from Piraeus port to our hotel. Reliable and the driver was ready as soon as we got there despite a late arrival. The next day we had a private tour with Terry. We learned so much about Greek culture and history, exceeded our expectations! Terry even went out of his way to take us to a non-tourist area souvlaki shop when we asked how to find truly authentic gyros. Highly recommend. He was ready with ice cold water after each of our stops too!
        At the very last minute we decided to use CATTaxi to transfer from hotel to airport. They were very accommodating and made it happen! 5 star service all around!

        We had a great time on this private city tour of Athens! Terry, our guide was great. He had so much knowledge about the city and we learned way more than if we had gone on a bus tour. Because my BF had injured his knee, we did not want to go to the Acropolis. So Terry took us to various places where we could see it, including Lykavittos Hill, 277 meters (910 ft) above the city. What an amazing view!! We also saw Hadrians library and where there were tunnels going underneath the city. He was friendly and the car was clean and we really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend Cattaxi and use them again when we return! They have also developed an extraordinary VR app for an immersive experience of ancient Athens that is quite unique.

        Our tour of the ancient sites of Athens was made so much more enjoyable thanks to the great job that Terry did. Terry was extremely professional and polite right from the start of our tour. What we liked best is that Terry provided tremendous content and context of each site that he took us to visit. His insight really made the experience so much more enjoyable and educational. Terry also let us tour each site at our own pace. Our tour was more like a 3/4 day tour. At the end of our day, Terry took us to a Greek taverna that had really outstanding food at a reasonable price. We also got a chance to have our first Mythos beer!!

        To wrap everything up, Terry had my daughter download an app and gave her a viewer that allowed her and us to see the historical sites of Athens as of they were still standing in their full glory. It was a fantastic way to end our day.

        My family and I would highly recommend CATTaxi and Terry. Terry was fantastic and really started our Greece vacation on such a positive note!!

        Terry helped us get around Athens showing us all the important sites we wouldn't even have considered visiting.
        He also helped us with the rest of the trip telling us which roads to drive through and which places to stop over.
        Highly recommended.
