Best tour guide, Petros
Hi Petros,
Just sending a note to thank you again for the wonderful tour of Athens today! Your extensive knowledge of the history of the city as well as the architecture and spiritual significance of the various locations made our visit truly memorable. It would not have been possible for us if we have explored the city on our own.. Thanks again. - Best, Andy and Amanda

This is not a tour.
This tour was a total bust. We chose the 8 hour semi-private tour option. We didn’t get an 8 hour tour. We didn’t even get a 6 hour tour. We got less than an hour of a guy driving us around the center of Athens where things are easier to walk to, and just dropping us off at monuments after telling us about them for a minute or two.

By 1pm we had to have lunch at a spot he chose with the other few people in our tour, and the service was so slow that we were there for over 2 hours. At 3:30 he dropped us off at the museum and that was the whole “tour”.

We’re both seasoned traveler and I’ve spent many trips for many months all over Europe and I’ve never felt ripped off quite like this. This is just a driver who was creating a lot of pollution in an already extremely polluted city and offered no value to our experience.

We just finished our private tour and my girlfriend and I are completely speechless. I’ve traveled the world and this was by far the most intimate, relaxing, and gorgeous experience to date. We started off on the wrong foot with our tour company and driver by sleeping in past our scheduled 8 a.m. start time. We were beyond embarrassed. Our driver was at our AirBnb at 0745 and was so patient waiting for us to get organized. Our driver Taz and this company embodied what hospitality truly means. Taz greeted us with a smile and displayed nothing but professionalism, love, and care for us throughout the entire experience. The van used is luxury and he offered us complimentary water, coke, and a beer if desired. If you can request Taz, DO IT! He’s extremely knowledgeable of the area and was super accommodating.. this experience is a 10/10. This experience is CHEAP considering everything that is included. Splurge and opt for a private tour. This is so much more intimate being privately guided throughout the city. It’s so special. When we visit Greece again we will be booking another private tour with this company and will hopefully be with our new friend Taz. What an experience of a lifetime. Thank you Olive Sea Travel and THANK YOU TAZ!

Loved it!
Oct 2021 • Couples
It was our first time to Greece and we really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide, Taz was very informative and relaxed and made the tour completely about us. Since it was a private tour, we went on our own time and pace and saw everything on our list. I would highly recommend this tour to those coming to Greece who want to see the most of Ancient Greece without being held up by other travelers.

I had an excellent time visiting Athens with this tour that was professional, well organized and most importantly containing many incredible attractions. The price overall was reasonable but I insist that the tour itself is full of beauty. I took a lot of beautiful pictures.

This full day tour was the best way to see, learn about and experience Athens in a day! Loved it!
Petros made this tour/trip incrdedible! From experiencing the Parthenon and everything at the Acropolis, to having a wonderful, traditional Greek lunch, to running around the Ancient Olympic Stadium to seeing the changing of the guard ceremony at the parliament and all of the wonderful views of this enormous city, we had an amazing day! Petros was very professional yet friendly, knowledgeable and funny. Having lived in the United States he was able to connect with us and was a great communicator. This was the best way to learn about the history/culture of the city and the people while tying that in to what we were seeing at the ancient temples and historical sites. Petros went out of his way to make sure we got to see everything we wanted to see and was able to answer every question thatvwe had. We can't thank him enough and highly recommend this day tour of Athens! Ask for Petros be your guide and your guranteed to have a great day!

Excellent Private Tour Guide to Athens
Oct 2021
Took a chance on private tour. We do not regret one heart beat and Olive Sea Travel Company provided outstanding service. Prompt pick up time and very clean van. Our guide Petros is intelligent and great driver. He is very knowledgeable on ancient Greek history. He provided us discounted tickets to sightseeing which he had anticipated, and we gladly reimbursed him. At the end of this tour, we booked again for a later travel to Poseidon Temple and Lake Vouliagmeni once we come back to Athens from Santorini. Kudos to you- Petros and Dimitra. Thank you, from J&G of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

A Perfect Day in Athens
Sep 2021 • Couples
What an absolutely amazing experience. Our guide, Evangelos, made our private day tour of Athens so easy, informative, and unforgettable. After picking us up at our hotel in a spacious, super clean, very comfy van, he walked us through his suggested itinerary for the day and checked in about any tour requests we had. He offered us a ticket package that saved us both time and euros, plus it was useable for more than one day; we so appreciated his forethought, as it was very handy and helped with lines.

Evangelos explained major sites while driving us everywhere, was very accommodating when we wanted to stay somewhere a bit longer (or less) than planned, and we so enjoyed our conversation with him throughout the day. His lunch recommendation was spot on, too!

We honestly cannot recommend this tour enough to anyone coming to Athens for the first time because it allowed us to see all the major sites in comfort. I don’t know if we’d have been able to fit everything in during our limited time in Athens if we’d tried to navigate ourselves, so for this reason the tour was invaluable. Adding to that the fact that we had such a wonderful guide, the money and time were VERY well spent.

Oct 2021 • Friends
We took this tour because our time in Athens was limited. We were able to see the most important things on the city.
Our driver-guide was Petros, and he made our experience unique. He explained everything to us in a very understandable and amenable way and made our day a really good one.
Want to mention that my husband lost his wallet at the Acropolis and Petros was able to made us recuperate it and everything was intact. Kudos to the person who found and returned it and to Petros and his agency that helped us on this process. Will recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens.
