Our driver was extremely informative and paid extra attention to my parents. He gave us good suggestions for meals and even late night Gelato place near our hotel.

Felt like the tour was more of a ride around to the sites. Not much information was given ...at one stop we were suppose to see 3 sites but only had time for one. Tour guide was super nice and accommodating. The tour itself was not what I expected and not worth what we paid.

This was the best tour I’ve ever taken. I’d give 10 stars if I could. Helen was the best tour guide we’ve ever had. Her knowledge and education were second to none.

Best tour of Athens ever! Take my advice and hire the guide too. We had Helen I cannot say enough nice things about her and our driver Vailias. Helen was so knowledgeable and pleasant. Very aware of her customers ages and abilities. We learned so much about history of Athens. She is a wealth of information and able to answer any questions we had. Our driver was very safe in some crazy traffic. You can’t go wrong with this tour. Thank you both for the amazing day. We loved it!

We did a private tour with Helen (guide) and Fotis (driver) during a cruise stop. We loved that the tour was customized to what we wanted to see and do, with as much or as a little time at each venue. The history provided with our sights by Helen was very helpful, as well as some photos that she had. The authentic Greek lunch was a special bonus, and we really enjoyed the restaurant they selected. We were a diverse group of 5 travelers and we all enjoyed it!

Dem was our driver and was an amazing guide to Athens. We loved the private trip vs a crowded tour bus. We saw all the sights and even had time for a coffee along the pier. We would recommend both Dem and the tour company.

Sensational day - Panos was brilliant ! Had a great traditional Greek lunch 10 courses including wine and beer so yummy and fresh and only 10 Euro. Panos took us to all the great places, organised tickets for my kids went well and beyond and before dropping us back to ship shouted us a sensational coffee from his favourite coffee shop- Amazing ! Such a wonderful day - thank you Panos you are a legend!

Vasillis was an amazing driver - vehicle was great, driving was safe, he got us waters after long outdoor stints, etc. But more importantly he added to our tour experience. He did a great job of entertaining our boys and added color and commentary to our tour guide (Helen - who was also great). He gave us several great recommendations on our last day together for the remainder of our trip in Greece
