        Perfect your when crunched for time
        Fabulous! Our driver, Nikos, was right on time, very friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a whirlwind of information and sites but perfect given our short time in Athens!

        A Great Day in Athens!
        I don’t know how our full day tour of Athens with Manos could have been better! He was delightful and so knowledgeable about Athens. His love for the city was evident from beginning to end. Traveling in a car in a city of this size was a plus. We covered a lot of ground this way making the tour well worth the price tag. Highly recommend!

        Stephano the “God” of the tour guides
        Stephano took us on a tour of Athens. We saw the highlights and so much more! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Greece. We didn’t feel rushed at any of the stops we made. This was my husband and I first time in Greece and Stephano made it such a memorable time for us. I would highly recommend this tour and would request Stephano! For he truly is a “God” of the tour guides !

        Awesome day in Athens!!!
        This was a perfect tour for my husband and I. Antonis was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic which made our day very special. We had limited time in Athens and Antonis made sure we saw everything. It was a busy day but with Antonis driving and keeping us on schedule we were able to relax and enjoy the day without being rushed. Lunch was included which was delicious. We highly recommend!!

        Best Way to See Athens in a Day!
        Our driver Babis was AMAZING! Best private tour ever. He was prompt, had a great personality and was easy to understand. He would give us insight about history while driving and then drop us off to see the sights. It was the perfect blend of informative, but not overbearing like a guided tour. It was flexible so we could choose what we wanted to do, but Babis had great recommendations and a basic itinerary planned for us. The provided lunch was great as well. Tasty salads and gyros. 5 stars, couldn’t be happier with my tour. The whole family loved the private tour service, our driver Babis was hilarious and personable, and the car was comfortable and well air-conditioned. Perfect.

        Athens private day tour
        We had a wonderful and educational day. We loved being on a private tour with just our group of six. We were able to visit much more than we could have on our own in this amount of time. The guide was nice and courteous and extremely knowledgeable. Lunch was delicious. We ate outside on a lovely street - It was obvious that this was a favorite spot for locals. A overall delightful day. We all highly recommend this tour!

        Well-organized, informative and comfortable tour. 10/10/
        Stefanos Malatos, our guide, was professional, knowledgeable and well-organized, and well-versed in ancient and more recent Greek history and culture. His pride in his country was evident and his attention to detail to our needs (my mother is 84) and preferences far surpassed our expectations. He was prompt, courteous and attentive. The scope of the short tour was impressive and we were comfortable and extremely pleased. We highly recommend this tour and especially our guide.

        Highly recommended Athens tour!
        This was a fantastic tour, and Andreas was our favorite tour guide out of our whole 2-week trip! He was absolutely fantastic - he was so friendly and knowledgeable. He picked us up from our hotel, and he gave us plenty of time at the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, and the Olympic Stadium. We got to see a changing of the guards and we visited the highest point in Athens. Andreas even took us to his favorite souvenir store (and it was great) and gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation. Just be aware that the tour guide cannot accompany you into the sites, but Andreas did an excellent job of giving us background information before/after all visits. Highly recommend!

        Outstanding one day private tour of Athens.
        My wife and I truly enjoyed our one day private tour of Athens. Our driver Konstatinos was incredibly helpful, friendly and informative. We also engaged a private guide Alice who truly brought the sights to life with her deep knowledge of Greek history and the history of art. Alice was exceptionally knowledgeable and her explanations of the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrion's Arch, the Ancient Agora, and the Panathletic Stadium added immeasurably to our visit. Our driver Konstatinos expertly navigated the busy streets of Athens to our many destinations including Lycabettus Hill, Monastiraki Square, and Syntagma Square. Our driver and guide both exceed our expectations on this excellent tour.

        Spent an excellent day with Jimmy. The tour was adapted to suit our needs on the run. His knowledge and expert commentary was second to none. We had the best day and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

      Our guide Nasos was one of the highlights of our trip! His knowledge and enthusiasm were fantastic. After pickup at our hotel, we went right to the entrance for the Acropolis which we enjoyed with the help of Rick Steve's audio tour that we downloaded. We saw so many sites and areas. The information he provided about the meanings of the steps in the changing of the guard made that experience even more special. Nasos really tailored the tour to our wishes and even stopped at his favorite shop after learning of my love of coffee to buy me a cappuccino freddo! I highly recommend this tour for an unforgettable experience in Athens.

      Aristotle was an incredible guide, and the entire experience was everything we were hoping it would be. From pick-up to drop-off (at a restaurant he recommended which was also fantastic), we felt comfortable, safe, educated, and delighted by all of his anecdotes and historical information provided about the city of Athens. We could both tell he took great pride in his home, his country, and his people, not to mention he was always smiling and had an answer for all of our many questions. The tour itself was great, as we got to see all the major sites in a relatively short amount of time, which was perfect for the one day we had to explore the city. Aristotle also gave us some good recs for streets to visit just to walk around after our tour, as well as some helpful safety tips for when we were out exploring on our own. A true five-star experience, we cannot recommend them enough!

      This was a wonderful experience seeing Athens in the evening. Our guide Aristotelis was amazing, presenting both the historical and current significance of what we saw. Our tour started with a memorable visit to the Acropolis and Parthenon in late afternoon and concluded 4 hours later with a spectacular hilltop view of Athens at night with the lights of the city and its famous archeological wonders. We enjoyed the tour so much we booked Aristotelis for the next evening with a tour along the coast to the Temple of Poseidon.

      We spent a lovely few hours being driven around Athens. I was travelling with my elderly mother and so we have some mobility issues to deal with, added to which we were both quite tired from getting up at the crack of dawn for a visit to the Acropolis. We explained what we needed And our driver took it completely on board and drove as close as possible to the relevant sites. He entertained us throughout the entire journey, and made sure that we enjoyed a great spot to watch the changing of the guard (including photos with the guardsmen) and some other great photo opportunities. he certainly had an inside track, having driven around the Foo Fighters whilst they were visiting Athens and we ended up having dinner in a lovely spot, pointed out by him. A really warm and engaging person and I would have no hesitation in taking another tool with him, or recommending the experience to others. All in all it was a lovely way to end our visit in Athens, he took some lovely photos of us and could not have been more pleasant. Thank you very much and all the best to you!

      Andreas was amazing, he really went above and beyond to accommodate some special needs plus provided incredible insights, insider info and amazing stories that brought the Greek culture and history to life. Exceeded our wildest expectations, we felt like VIPs and saw and experienced things on this tour in ways that we could have never done on our own - even magnifying and highlighting things we had already seen prior that we now have such a greater appreciation for. Andreas love for Greece and his vast knowledge and storytelling talents were infectious; this was truly one of the highlights of our trip.

      We had a wonderful evening with Nasos as our driver. From the first moment we knew we were in good hands. He excitedly shared the history of the city and took us to all of the promised sights as well as a couple of additional surprise stops based on our conversations and interests. Despite the hot temperatures even in the late aftenooon, we were always met with refreshing drinks and an air conditioned vehicle. We ended the evening with dinner by the sea in Mikrolimano. An unforgettable time! Thank you, Nasos and Olive Sea!

      Incredible experience for an avid traveler who loves learning about the world destinations I’m blessed to have experienced. It was wonderful to get to ride along with our guide who shared about the city, stopping to let us take photos and experience the sites first hand. Another plus is being picked up and dropped off right in front the apartment we rented. Ask for Adonis! He dropped us right at the entry to the Acropolis after sharing its history and the heritage of each building, and waited patiently as we explored to pick us right back up at the same location.

      We are an extended family of 17 in Athens for 2 days before a Greek Island Cruise. We wanted a private tour of Athens with commentary. Unfortunately it was under rated. Out of all 10 days in Greece with tours this was our least favorite :(

      Excellent communication from Olive Sea from the beginning with details etc. (They even made us a dinner reservation at a cool rooftop bar/restaurant). and I thought fair pricing. Van was comfortable and new with good A/C. We were there when there was excessive heat so we could not visit the Parthenon instead they made arrangements for the Parthenon Museum.

      Our guide was very average. So average in fact - no one can remember his name for this review :( We had to ask questions to get him to relay information about Athens. He didn't have great skills to keep anyone interested. Thus lots of side conversations when he did speak. We didn't learn very much. To top it off after the museum he told us our tour was over (at 7 p.m.) I then got out my email that said our tour was until 8:30 p.m. and there were attractions we hadn't seen. He then continued the tour until 8:30 p.m., I'm sure he was annoyed that I caught this!

      I wish I could give a better review but unfortunately cannot recommend. I was disappointed.

      We weren't sure whether booking an evening tour for the same day we arrived in Greece was a good idea, but we are so glad we did! Aristotelis was a fantastic driver, very pleasant, and full of interesting information and good to help us make the most of our experience. He shared with us that he had been a Presidential Guard, and gave us fascinating background details before taking us to see the changing of the guard. We loved every minute, and highly recommend the tour and Aristotelis in particular!!
