          Full Day Private Athens Tour with MANOS!
          Very good private tour by our handsome guide, driver and bodyguard MANOS. You will see most of the highlights of Athens within a day with plenty of explanations from MANOS. He is also very friendly, helpful and full of humour.

          Acropolis Hill, Ancient Agora, Coliseum, Zeus temple, Changing of the Guard, lunch at local restaurant, museum
          We were picked up at our hotel in luxurious van and Manos was an excellent tour facilitator. He gave us so much information as we drove from site to site. As we arrived at each location he was able to give us specific information on how to enter the site and where to meet him. We were able to see so many important historical sites , all in one day! The lunch was delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the entire day. Manos gave us many helpful hints for our first time visiting Greece. Thank you for a wonderful day!!!

          Athens Full Day Tour Is Excellent
          Panos is THE best guide ever! We had a perfect day with him. His knowledge of Athens and the sights and his engaging personality made the tour. We learned, laughed, toured and found a new friend in the process. Trust anything he suggests!!

          7 out of 5 stars for Nasos!
          I like travelling on my own from time to time and generally don't like large tour groups that usually visit the same tourist hotspots and therefore leave no room for spontaneous ideas or wishes. That's why this wasn't my first private tour, but it was definitely one, if not the best! 
As soon as Nasos picked me up at the hotel, I realised that I wouldn't just be spending the day with a tour guide, it felt more like a friend was showing me around his city! 
To be clear, visiting the Acropolis cannot and will not be an exclusive experience. But afterwards and in all other places, there are ways to escape the crowds...if you have someone with you who knows how to do it. 
The time with Nasos was so entertaining that it passed far too quickly. Not only did he show me around his city with great enthusiasm, but he also gave me so much more insight and experience than I could have imagined beforehand. Not to forget, the souvlaki was the best I've ever had! Your reason for going on a private tour is probably the same as mine... it's the desire for as little stress as possible, but still as much privacy and individuality as possible...Nasos more than fulfilled all that! It was great, thank you Nasos for this unforgettable experience...and I hope to see you again soon! Many thanks also to Olive Sea Travel... the communication beforehand was perfect!

          Great Morning in Athens for a Family from Port
          We had a lovely morning with Yannis our guide and driver. He was great at getting us to the closest spots to walk to and sharing the history. Great English, very good with kids and a very nice van with perfect AC! Highly recommend this tour for families (3 kids —11 to 7 yrs)

          Athens private day tour
          We are very happy with the tour arrangements. We were picked up on time. Giannis our driver/guide was excellent. He ran us through the full day itinerary explained extensively the many interesting background information of each tour spot. Furthermore, he was open and cheerful. From him, we managed to understand the Athens more as a city as whole rather than just a tour spot! Hence this is a very enjoyable tour!

          Family business worth your time and money!
          Our driver was excellent, always concerned for our well being and ensuring our comfort and happiness. Although he was the “driver” he was full of knowledge which he willing shared. His personality started to shine through more as the day progress to the point we were all laughing about some of life’s issues. He was a down to earth and practical person that told you the truth not the what tourists want to hear kind of thing's. He was always punctual and again always ensuring we had everything we needed to make the most of the day. Would definitely recommend. He also informed us about the organization he works for and had lots of praise for its family like environment, and that the company cared genuinely about what they do, and that was apparent in the way he took care of us for over 12 hours.

          Great 8 hour tour!
          My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Well worth the money and not having to deal with being in a group. We got to take our time at all of our stops and our driver/guide Babis was fantastic. Really personable and a great guide around the city. Gave us some great food recommendations too. Would highly recommend this private tour. Thanks again Babis. - Travis and Joanna

          Flexible, fun private Athens day tour!
          We had a wonderful day and saw so many things in and around Athens, with detailed local information provided throughout. Lots of flexibility in what we covered in terms of not overlapping places we had already seen and in being flexible with kids and adults desires to see different things. Beautiful city, made the history come alive!

          Great Private tour of Athens with Manos!
          We loved our tour with Manos! As a family Manos moved at our pace to see all the known sites and a few hidden gems. Manos was extremely knowledgeable about the individual places we visited and was able to relay a lot of historical context around each stop in a fun and conversational manner. One of the things we highly appreciated was how friendly Manos was and his patience of all of our questions whilst covering quite a breadth of places. We would highly recommend him for a private tour as a family or an individual basis.

        This was a wonderful tour of Athens seeing all the high points in a few hours.
        Yannis was a great source of information and took us to every spot we wanted to see.
        He was very informative and, although he didn't accompany us, gave us alot of info and details on what we were seeing or about to see.

        This tour was amazing. Our driver Evangelos picked us up at the port in advance. Then we started our visit with the Acropolis. We were there early enought to avoid the big crowds. The driver is not allowed to come with us on the archeological sites but it was not needed. He provided us all our tickets so we were able to avoid the queues. He provided us all the informations that we needed prior to drop us off to each site. He was very knowledgeable. We were always getting on a new site before the crowds. We finished our journey in plaka with a lunch in a perfect greek tavern recommended by Evangelos.

        Our guide, Sokratis, did an excellent job of ferrying us around the different sights of ancient and modern Athens! We truly appreciated being able to buy skip the line tickets directly from him, making access to the Acropolis, the Agora, and the National Archeological Museum so easy. The private van was clean, comfortable, and filled with cool water. Two thumbs up!

        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.

        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!
