          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.

          Great Tour and Service
          Our friend who wanted to see the acropolis had broken her ankle and we wanted to acquire if this tour was even possible for someone to participate in a boot. Within minutes we had a response and were accommodating to even provide us with a wheelchair so she could use the elevator to go up to the acropolis level . She was super grateful and happy. Our guide Tony was super knowledgable and welcoming to our group of 6. He later took us to a delicious restaurant on the port that had the best seafood dishes ( per our request for good seafood).

          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.

          Well planned tour with driver and expert licensed tour guide.
          Wonderful private full day tour. They did a great job of planning everything. A couple days before the planned tour they reached out and asked if we would like a licensed tour guide that would actually guide you through all the sites (for an additional fee). We decided to add the licensed tour guide and it was the best money we spent. It 100% improved our tour, she quickly guided us to sites many of which we would have never found on our own. Additional she had very in-depth knowledge allowing us to ask questions and also she helped personalize the tour by asking what interested us.

          Our Athens Tour with Panos
          We were looking for a full day private tour, and after reviewing several options on Viator, we selected Olive Sea travel based on reviews, the itinerary and that it would just be the two of us. Leading up to our tour, I communicated with Olive Sea and would receive speedy responses. This was key to giving me confidence that I chose the right company. The day before I received the name of our Driver and specific details of where to meet him. Our driver Panos was waiting exactly as stated. Now the quality of our tour was in his hands, and he did not disappoint! He was upbeat, friendly, knowledgeable, and had excellent English communication skills. Not only did we go to the listed sites he also took us to perfect picture spots and to witness the changing of the guard at the President’s residence. Fascinating! Also, the lunch that was included was delicious. Thank you again Panos for a great tour of Athens!

          Worth a visit.
          We had a fantastic day in Athens recently with a brilliant guide Sotirios. He was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Athens was very hot, busy and dusty. My advice would be to wear comfy flat shoes preferably trainers as there's a lot of uneven surfaces and a lot of steps. Take water with you. Use a guide if possible so you can learn about the history etc. We then had a look around the Olympic Stadium which was really interesting and only a short walk away from the Acropolis. You can see all the Olympic flame torches here.

          Excellent tour with Elias
          What a fun tour. Our guide Elias was so sweet. He was knowledgeable and let us know a bit of the history of what we were going to go see at each stop. There was a bike race on the day of our tour and Elias was honest about the delays and detours we were facing, and remained flexible and friendly as we navigated through the busier than normal streets. He even walked us to a few site entrances to make sure we got there successfully when he was not able to drop us off right at the front. The sites were astounding, as one would assume the monuments to be, but Elias made the tour truly memorable and enjoyable.

          Great Day Tour seeing it all!
          Having a guide and a private car is the way to go it really makes navigating and seeing all of the sights painless. Our driver was excellent and spent a solid 8 hours with us taking us to all the major sites for first time Athens visitors left us very impressed. Communications from the driver/guide was solid Felt like I really understood Athens much better than If we went on our own

          Excellent tour. Got to see all the major Athens sites while minimizing the crowds at each of them. Even got to go to one of the better spots for a photo op of all of Athens away from the thousands of tourists seen at most of the popular spots.

        We elected to do a two day trip to Delphi and Meteora with our four children ranging from 14-28 years. The tour company, Olive Sea Travel, provided licensed tour guides at our request for the tours of Delphi and Meteora and we couldn’t have been more impressed with their knowledge and ability to keep our entire groups attention. The tour company was wonderful - very responsive to requests and fantastic at sending confirmations.

        Our driver, Dem, was incredible! Seriously very knowledgeable and kind, not to mention extremely patient. He was on time every time and even gave us the BEST recommendations for restaurants. I won’t hesitate to request him for future excursions.

        The private drive is definitely worth it. The van we rode in was very safe and comfortable and we were certainly grateful for the air conditioning.

        I know our entire family had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this tour and this company!

        Thank you for an awesome tour!

        We scheduled a two-day private tour to see Delphi and Meteora. All questions were answered in advance and the company was extremely responsive and professional. We were picked up in a clean Mercedes mini-van for our group of four. Our driver/guide for the trip was Lysandros. He was early to pick us up. Lysandros was outstanding. He was friendly, attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the sights and locations. He drove safely and made sure we were comfortable at all times. He recommended a lunch location overlooking a beautiful view with great food. He even took us up to Meteora at sunset to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful views. The following morning, he took us up early so we could avoid the larger crowds and was immediately there when we were ready to leave. We considered booking a tour on the tour bus, but are SO glad we chose the private tour instead. It made for an amazing two days and was so much more flexible. Add to that a wonderful guide like Lysondros and it was the perfect trip. I would highly recommend it.

        Olive Sea Travels provided excellent arragements for multiple activities for our family in Athens, Delphi and Meteora. We arranged our airport pickups through them and also did the 2 day Delphi-Meteroa trip. Dimitra was the agent that answered all my questions on email without once being pushy with any of their offerings. She was flexible, accommodative and super prompt in responding to my questions. The Driver George (Yurgos) that took us on our private 2 day tour was charming and engaging and also super flexible to accommodate our needs and even went the extra mile to bring us to the lookout points in Meteora twice because of my interest in photography. He had a very neat vehicle and had checked the weather and was prepared with umbrellas due to the forecast and really went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable.

        I visited Greece with 4 other friends in May. We hired George from Olive Sea to provide transportation in Delphi and Meteora. We visited the Delphi Archeological site and museum and the Monasteries in Meteora. We could not have been more pleased with George's services. He was more than a driver, he provided very helpful information to us and was so friendly and professional. He also added on an extra attraction for us to visit which was on the way to our hotel. He stopped when and where we requested for meals or food pickups at restaurants/markets. We remembered his advice and comments throughout the rest of our trip and often referred to them. It was like he was part of our whole Greece vacation, even though we only needed his services the first couple days. I highly recommend using George from Olive Sea whenever you have an excursion or need transportation in Greece.

        Our driver/guide, George, was great. He was flexible and adapted the program to meet our needs. Meteora and Delphi were both very much worth the trip. The monasteries were beautiful and I am glad we decided to take the trip to see them.

        My only complaint, and the reason for four stars rather than five was the choice of hotel where we spent the night. The Hotel Meteoritis was not very nice and I suspect we were housed there because it was cheap for the travel company. This was not an inexpensive tour and they could have selected a better hotel.

        I highly recommend this trip. Our guide Petros was a joy. He was prompt without fault and always enthusiastically answered our many questions with clear knowledge and passion for the sites. He it top notch.
        We had many special requests and he made everything happen. Meteora is magical and should be experienced.

        We enjoyed Petros so much, we booked him for a private tour of Athens. Despite being in Athens during Marathon weekend, he skillfully navigated the streets and traffic to get us everywhere we wanted. We did not miss a thing and learned so much from our tours.

        The trip was awesome! The tour left from the home we were staying in the Athens suburbs and took us to Delphi for a few hours, had time for a leisurely delicious lunch, and then on to the city of Kalabaka for the evening. We left the next day to go up to two monasteries in Meteora. Our guide, Naso, saw that another monastery was open, so he let us tour that one as well. We then drove to Thermopylae and dipped our hands into the sulfur hot springs and saw the monument honoring the Spartans who fought against the Persians (referenced in the movie 300). We also stopped at this powerful World War II memorial on the way to Delphi. It was a very somber reference, but helped illustrate the rich history of Greece (and we both love history).

        It was an amazing time, and with a private tour, you can have some flexibility in your schedule. Plus Naso is an amazing guide! It was great to learn about his heritage (Spartan Canadian), his family (to understand how locals live), and to hear about the history of the land. Plus he has great driving skills to get us around quickly yet safely (the Greek roads are tricky!).

        We had a wonderful time on the delphi/meteora trip and athens day tour with our Canadian, Spartan olive farmer, Nasos. He was very friendly, helpful and went out of his way to make our tour special. He took us to see sunset at meteora, which was breathtaking and certainly the highlight of our trip. Big group tours don't compare to this sort of private experience, which was flexible and we were never rushed. We would recommend this tour and Nasos to anyone!

        This could not have been better for our family of four. Having a private vehicle with the amazing driver guide, Alexander, took all the challenges of getting to these destinations two brilliant sites of Greece out of the picture.
        Alexander was so wonderful and knowledgeable and made the trip a very engaging and rewarding experience.
        We couldn’t have done this over two days on our own so it was an excellent way to do it before heading to the islands.
        Prior to leaving Olive Sea was great, reassuring and responsive.
        Highly recommend!!

        My family of four (13 year old girl and 8 year old boy) had a great time on this trip. We were picked up right from the airport after arriving in Greece by Kristos. We were very comfortable in a large black van. My kids got some extra sleep on the drive up. Kris was accommodating in my husband's desire to add a stop to the trip (the Crossroads). We were lucky enough in Delphi to see the Olympic Committee bring the Torch.

        Meteora was absolutely gorgeous. We got to see a couple of monasteries. We had a late start that morning so opted to skip the third. The next stop was Thermopylae, where Kris was very knowledgeable about the history of the battle and its consequences. He also was very patient as my husband tried to react various 300 and Oedipus scenes. All in all we had a great time.
