          Amazing tour of Athens!!!
          Everything was amazing! Athens Shore Excursions was so responsive to emails and questions to ensure we had stress free planning and an excellent excursion. Our tour guide, Michael, was the best. He took us to all the planned stops and gave us historical background along the way. We had enough time to grab a snack and the restaurant he took us to was by far the best gyros in all of Greece.

          A great experience with Athens Shore Excursions
          We evaluated numerous tour providers and picked Athens Shore Excursions. We were happy we did. Our cruise timing was delayed an hour and ASE was very easy to contact and delay our pickup for an hour. We arranged a private guide for the entire day through ASE and they found a wonderful woman whose English was perfect; her knowledge of the history was super and was great at making every step of the day smooth and enjoyable. For example, she found a small cafe which was quick and good for a short lunch. We walked quite a bit, and she had the driver waiting for us at every exit point. We added a stop at the Museum, and she was able to bypass the long lines and show us the highlights quickly. Our driver was very fluent in English and was right at the arrival gate from the cruise on time. Overall a great experience.

          Great tour!!
          We had a tour group of 19 and everybody on the trip loved the tour. They said it was one of the best tours that they have been on. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. I would definitely book with Athens shore excursions again.

          Awesome experience in Athens and Corinth!
          This was our favorite day out of 3 week vacation. Peter met us at the cruise ship dock, and took us to Athens and Corinth in a nice vehicle. He was so extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Our whole family loved him and the day!

          Athens Cruise Port to Airport
          We had a lengthy layover from our ship debark until our flight and decided to create our own Athens day trip. Our driver was waiting for us as we debarked the ship and off we went. We had been in Athens before but during this tour we had the opportunity to see some unexplored areas. The driver and service provides was excellent and I recommend them.

          Best tour of Athens
          This was a fantastic tour of Athens. We couldn’t have seen as much as we did if we had tried to do it on our own. Our driver took us everywhere and even recommended a great spot for lunch. He knew all of the best times to arrive at each place to avoid the crowds. Highly recommend!

          A great day ashore from our cruise
          We were met by our knowledgeable friendly guide Panayotis on time at the cruise terminal in a smart comfortable car . He took us on the arranged itinerary but was also ready to be flexible in terms of our preferred timings and choices . He was good company and really keen that we enjoyed our trip . He explained that this is a well established family business who have a great reputation

          Great day!
          We had a wonderful day with our driver (John) and guide (Matina). We would absolutely recommend having a guide with you, Matina enriched the experience 100%. Her knowledge and love of the history came through in spades and was such a joy. Although the Agora was closed when we got there we hope to return one day. We had an amazing lunch at a local restaurant and the chef was outstanding. This was a great way to make the most of our day in Athens.

          Wonderful Tour!
          Outstanding tour and an excellent way to see the highlights of Athens in a limited time and for those without the ability to climb the Acropolis. Yanni was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He gave us lots of relevant historical and cultural background information. Highly recommend this tour!

          Great company
          Great company. Very punctual and professional. They picked us up from the airport and gave us a tour for 4 hours, than dropped us at the port. After the cruise, they drove us back to the airport. They even provided a car seat for the baby. We were 8 adults and a seven months baby. We will use this company again.

          STAY FAR AWAY!!!!
          **** TRAVELERS BEWARE******** My wife and I are frequent travelers and never have I dealt with a company so corrupt. Last year for obvious reasons (covid-19)they canceled our tour. This is not the issue, the issue was in their own words they would refund us but we would have to wait until January 2021. We did that, when I reached back out to them to inquire about the refund that they said they would process they never replied. I tried multiple times to get ahold of them. Only when I explained that I was going to write reviews and contact my banking institutions as well as the Greek Better Business authorities did the email back, saying they were sorry and that they were waiting on their bank to process the funds. That was at the end of January 2021. Weeks went by and I sent multiple emails again with zero response. So I stated that I was going to proceed with the earlier plans. Boom they emailed back saying sorry but their bank was still processing it?? Zero confirmation numbers which I asked for. Weeks went by again. No response. So I'm urging travelers to not book with a shady company that can't even hold up their end of a deal. You have many choices for tour companies in Greece, I would choose otherwise.

          Private tour w taxi
          On our way to the hop on hop off we had an English speaking taxi driver offer to take us to all our sites. So we saw Athens at our own pace, she was knowledgeable and answered all our questions and even took us up to the St George Monastery where no bus could go.

          George G was the best!
          We had an awesome day touring Athens and Corinth with George G. He was very informative and has a great personality! We saw the Corinth Canal, the ancient Port of Kenchreai (where Paul left Greece to go to Ephesus), the ancient city of Corinth, the church built over the place Paul lived while in Corinth, the Parthenon, the Acropolis, Mars Hill and much more!

        Friendly and reliable…we met at the cruise terminal and the instructions was clear and precise…we would recommend the private guide because you can be more flexible with your time and sights…they purchased the museum and entrance tickets in advanced thus avoiding the huge line up…took us through the narrow streets of Planka and the waterfront….
