Very pleased with the private tour of Athens and Poseidon Temple. Terry did an amazing job for my group of 5. He was flexible, knowledgeable and accommodating. I am VERY pleased with this experience and having him as a guide. I highly recommend without any hesitation!

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.

our half day tour with terry was the best part of our day. terry was really friendly professional with fluent english and wide knowledge about greek history. the car was clean and had wifi and charger for your mobile phone. the fair was very reasonable and at the end of our trip nobody had even the slightest of complaint to make. all taxi drivers should take lessons from terry, he is one of a kind. keep up the great work you do guys.
