We took 2 days tours one was the night tour for 4 hours and other one was Day tour . The driver his name was George and Panos tour specialist. They both showed us Athens and explained everything in detail. This tour helped us to see Athens .

It is hard to book an excursion from the other side of the world over the internet but be assured you can trust this company. Traveled here from Boston, MA with a group of 16 people. Our guide was outside the cruise port and was personable and friendly. His name was Dimitris Katsoulis and if you are lucky enough to get him for the day, you will be all set. Our driver George was wonderful also. We were off to the Acropolis with the Parthenon. What an experience with so many people and such an effort to see everything. Demitris led us through everything and gave us a wonderful tour. Some of our group were not able to get to the top. Very rocky and dangerous if you are not sure footed. We also did lunch and shopping in a cute town And we enjoyed many sights from the mini bus. Wonderful day and company.

Giorgos was our guide/driver.
HE IS THE BEST! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! He adjusted to our wants and accommodated us very well. He is such a good guy anyone can trust! He speaks very good english and awesome with conversations. We didnt get a tour guide but no worries, he is more than enough!
He is an asset to the company, I hope he is well appreciated. He is a gem!
He brought us to places I cant forget in my whole life. You will be very much be remembered Giorgos, you are doing very very great. I will highly recommend Athens tour greece because of our experience with Giorgos. :)

Demetri was an excellent tour guide. His English is excellent and he planned the tour according to our needs because we couldn’t do a lot of walking. While he can’t go with you into most places, his knowledge about history and the area is excellent.
We had a fantastic day according to our needs and the places we wanted to see. Demetri tailored the tour and time spent at places for us. His tour was fantastic And if you are looking for a great day, good pricing and great tour guide use them. If we return to Athens we will use them again.

The tour guide Leften’s and driver George provided professional, courteous and worthwhile tour. They arrived on time and asked about our interests to determine what we knew and didn’t know about the “Best of Athens”.

They were appreciative of us as the customer. Always smiling and informative.

Worth the price.

We would have never seen so much of Athens without this tour. Chris was fantastic and explained everything along the route. It was a little rushed, and we passed on the Museum visit, since we would have not had enough time to really see it all. The local lunch was delicious...the owner's suggestion of a sampler was amazing.
One suggestion, that we weren't informed of, is to purchase the Combination ticket at your first stop...the Acropolis...it will save you money. Each stop charges a fee, which started to add up, but after our first admission it was too late to switch to the ticket package.

What a fantastic day we enjoyed. Katerina and Christos took us on a wonderful journey through history and modern Athens. Their knowledge, passion and love of the city was undoubted and very noticeable. This day did not feel like a tour, it felt like a family member was showing us around their city. Certainly one of the highlights of our holiday.

We found this organization to be absolutely reliable both in correspondence prior to the tour and on the day. We were very satisfied with the locations and order suggested we visit them. David our driver was absolutely professional, with a terrific knowledge of Athens, Greece and its history. He was obliging, and considerate towards one of us with limited mobility. Well satisfied.
We hadn't seen it mentioned in the website or documentation that this company will accommodate tourists with limited mobility and with prior advice they can arrange the appropriate signage for the vehicle that will ensure closer access where available.
