        Athens Day Tour
        Costas took care of us very well and made our tour an unforgettable experience. Costas went out of his way to help us with our trip as a whole and even came out to lunch with us. Time for a Siesta.

        Great trip with Costas!
        Costas was extremely timely, and a great driver! He was super friendly, and helped us get to our ferry. He even made sure we were on the right ferry before leaving. Would 100 percent recommend traveling with him! During our ride, he shared his knowledge about Athens and Greek history. It was super cool to hear!

        Taxis scams are still common in Athens.
        Taxi scams are still common in Athens. The taxis are not properly regulated, there just aren't enough inspectors, and the laws are not enforced. Do the following to avoid being scammed: 1) Tell the driver you need a VAT receipt, before you get into the cab. 2) Take a photo of his licence plate and tell the driver you have done so 3) tell him to set the meter (if there is no meter get out and find another cab) 4) Make sure the driver knows where he's going and set your GPS on your mobile to track him. It's sad that you have to do this. When I was last there (I live in Greece) the drivers complained they had no work. The above may well be part of the reason.

        Athens Tour, driver, Michael (5 star)
        My wife and I visited Athens mid October 2023 and our driver was Michael. He was very knowledgeable, nice, flexible, and passionate about his job and Athens History. I would definitely and highly recommend Michael for anyone looking to book Athens tour.

        5 star tour and transfer company
        I did a lot of research into reputable tour guides in Athens and Athens Taxi Travel had really good reviews. So I decided to book all our transfers and tours through this company. From the moment we got picked up from the airport the service was impeccable and prompt. Special mention to our guide Vicky and driver Yanni for looking after us on our trip to Corinth, Vicky was a wealth of information and very knowledgeable. The second day Kostas and Vicky took us to Cape Sounion to see the Temple of Poseidon. Don’t bother looking any further - this is the company to book with!

        Just okay
        What a great opportunity to be in the area where history occurred. We didn’t hire a private guide which I wish we did. Our driver kept on with telling us take our time which ended up causing us to miss out on a couple if stops.

        Wonderful way to see Corinth
        Corinth and Paul make for a fascinating tour! Pericles, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made the day very fun. We stopped at a half dozen places, but highlights were definitely the museum and site at Ancient Corinth and the Castle that overlooks Corinth. In Ancient Corinth you have a chance to see a sprawling town from antiquity with a wonderful and descriptive adjacent museum. It's not nearly as crowded as some of the Athens sites and you can really get a feel for how life flowed 2000 years ago. The castle was remarkable (wear sturdy shoes if you plan to hike much - the stone roads/paths can be slippery and sharp), and the views were truly amazing. We spent about a half a day on site in Corinth with a meal at the end in a local seaside restaurant that was a real treat. Pericles told great stories and adapted to our pace - a very professional guide. All in, we'd highly recommend the experience.

        Amazing! Best driver, great tour.
        Driver Mike is a friend now! He was very very kind and gave a lot of historical information. He took us to the best local spots for foods and stuff in between sites. Defenitely recommend him and Kostas tours.

        Athens/ Marathon Tour
        Vicki was a fantastic tour guide, and Nick was a great driver. On time arrival, roomy & comfortable car, and smooth transitions going one stop to another. Both of them made our experience wonderful today; a great first full day in Greece! Thank you again for the wonderful tour around Athens and Marathon!

        Best private tours in Athens area!
        We recently spent 6 days in Athens prior to a cruise and, after careful research, chose Athens Taxi Travel for all of our private tours and transfers. These tours included customized Athens tours, a day tour to the Peloponnese (including Corinth Canal, Ancient Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus), a day trip to Ancient Olympia, and a day trip to Delphi. We could not have made a better choice than Athens Taxi Travel! Kostas was always very responsive and helpful (both in planning ahead for our visit and during our travels), and we wisely chose to add the optional services of a licensed tour guide to accompany us into the sites. Vicky, the guide, is a gem with vast education and experience as an archaeologist. Not to mention, she and Kostas are both amazing, friendly people who felt like family by the time we said our goodbyes at the end of our stay in Athens. They made our visit so memorable and stress-free. We highly recommend!!

      Kostas picked us up from the port in his MercedesTaxi. Four people was a little tight. He drove us to the first stop where we purchased a multi-site ticket. Since he is not a certified guide he could not enter the sites with us. Each site was self-guided unless you wanted to pay extra for a tour guide. The Acropolis was spectacular! We visited several other locations rounding out our stop in Athens. The very last stop was a cemetery that was a bit underwhelming where the museum was closed and I would suggest you bypass it and use the time to pick up some souvenirs from the shops near the Acropolis. I hear they are the best!

      Perfect timing, duration and covering most of the main iconic and historical landmarks in Athens.

      Our driver is Michael and he is excellent in his knowledge and timing. He is passionate about his job and shared so much history and knowledge about Athens. He also recommended the right places with some options for lunch. The lunch was delicious and reasonably priced.

      He also helped to recommend airport transfer under the same management for my team of 5 people. We ended up getting a huge luxurious Mercedes van and a superbly comfortable ride to airport at a very reasonable price. It’s much cheaper than what others offered.

      Overall it’s truly worth it. Go for this!

      What an incredible tour this is! Our ship arrived in the A.M. and we didn't have to fly out until the afternoon, so this tour was exceptional to fill the gap and see Athens. We were picked up at the port and we did have to pay an extra $45 Euro to be dropped off at the airport but no big deal. Dimopoulos was an awesome driver, guide and went out of his way to make sure we could pack as much in as time allows. Highly recommend this tour!

      Just wonderful! Elias was a tremendous driver and guide for us around Athens. He timed things perfectly so we were able to see the changing of the guard, and he gave us so much information and history along the way and at every stop. Cannot recommend enough. Be ready for those Greek stairs!

      We had the best city tour and driver. We saw all the archeological sites that we wanted to see and learned of their history and past. It’s quite amazing! Our driver also took us to see many unexpected sites such as old mansions, parks, the changing of the guard (which was one of our favorites), and views of the city that were unbelievable. What a beautiful place . It was obvious that our driver loves his city very much and it showed.

      Was more of a private driver than an actual tour. Driver gave some historical tid bits as we approached each location but then the rest of the tour was on our own and additional to the fee we paid the driver. It was still nice to be in our own car but was not much different than having a private driver.

      We had the best time on this tour. Our guide, Pericles, was wonderful! He was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and shared so much great information. He was flexible with the itinerary so we could get the most out of our day. The Acropolis was busy, as I'm sure it always is, but he planned it so we were able to be there when it was a little less chaotic. We definitely feel like he helped us get the most out of our day. One of our favorite things was the view from high above the city. Just beautiful!

      Our guide, Kostas, was wonderful! He arrived to pick us up on time, drove us to all of the major sights, and explained lots of history along the way. And although the entrance fees to the various sites weren't covered in the cost of the tour, he took care of purchasing the entrance tickets on our behalf (including the Parthenon, which now requires timed tickets). We would highly recommend this tour for first-time visitors to Athens. This private tour is much more efficient than a hop on hop off bus, and you get much more history and interesting facts.
