I was struggling to organize my first trip to Greece, until I found Dimitra from Olive Sea Travel. She was the most efficient, organized, responsive and accommodative travel agent I ever worked with . She helped us book a 9 day tour that included all airport and ferry pickups, full day Athens tour, Mykonos half day tour, Santorini 6 hour tour with Oia Sunset. The drivers were well versed in the history of the pace and spoke good English. The schedule was managed promptly. Above all, Dimitra was available at all times to check on our travel. Initially, we were picked up by Nassos who was excellent in helping us navigate through Athens. We had a great tour of Acropolis and neighboring Athens, elegant place to have lunch by the ocean and do shopping. Mykonos and Santorini trips were equally well organized and the drivers were extremely helpful in making our trip a memorable one. There were a couple of things that made this especially sweet. Dimitra was able to book us into two fantastic hotels in Mykonos and Santorini and all our trip were charged and paid through Olive Sea Travel prior to arrival. This made it easier for us to enjoy our holiday without anxiety. While the drivers are knowledgeable about the area, they are not official tour guides. You can always hire an official tour guide through them if you need. I cannot be happier about the choice I made to book through Olive Sea Travel. I highly recommend them to anyone traveling to Greece. Special thanks to Dimitra for making our holiday a lovely, unforgettable, stress-free vacation. Could not have done without your help.

Working with Dimitra at Olive Sea Travel was the best thing I did for my family when we visited Greece, and our driver Kostas was awesome! No one tour would have hit all the places each of my family members wanted to see, so I reached out to Olive Sea Travel with a list of sites. Dimitra not only handled the logistics but purchased our Skip the Line tickets at each site as well. She was patient with my many questions and incredibly responsive to emails. Having her coordinate everything took so much stress off of my plate! Our driver Kostas loved his town, and it showed. He showed us sites not on our list and let us determine how long we spent at each site. My husband and youngest got tired so he took them back to our hotel while our oldest and I enjoyed a museum. He didn't rush us and encouraged us to take our time. Having a private driver and custom itinerary wasn't that much more expensive than had I booked a "tour" for my family. Olive Sea Travel made everything easy and fun!

One of the most impressive sites was seeing the changing of the guard up close. Was so impactful since our tour guide Nasos took the time to tell us all the meaning and symbolism in the ceremony. This memory will stay forever and I have great respect for those chosen for this privilege and the mastery of their skill.

We spent a wonderful day with Tas. He created a tour that met the needs of our age and arranged a meal for us at a Vegan Restaurant to accomodate our dietary requirements. He was knowledgeable about all the sites, made us feel unrushed and effortly got us where we needed to be at times with short lines. He was able to deviate when we asked to see something else. We felt secure, comfortable and cared for on this private tour.

We selected Olive Sea Travel for our Custom Private Tour or mainland Greece based on reviews like the one I am about to write. From the very first email sent inquiring about tours to the very last day of our tour Olive Sea Travel exceeded all expectations. Helen was our tour guide and Harris our driver. For 7 days we toured with these two incredibly professional, knowledgeable, intelligent and friendly Greeks. Helen is the best tour guide we have ever had. Whether we were in Athens, Meteora, Delphi, Olympia, Nafplio, Sounio or any of the various spots in between, she knew the history, culture and significance of each location. Not sure how any one person can have that much detail knowledge and the talent to share it openly and effectively but she does. Harris is the silent type that is very funny at the same time. When he talks...we all listened! He made sure we were punctual and safe at all times. Harris and Helen were a great team for my wife and myself on our 7 day tour of Greece. Vasilis, (who I believe is the owner of Olive Sea), took great care of us! His office staff is extremely responsive and flexible to our desires and needs. The entire experience was 5-Star! We highly recommend using Olive Sea Travel any time you can!!!

I reached out to Olive Sea Travel prior to my tour with some questions, and they promptly answered them. They even bought me a combo ticket in advance so I could save on entrance fees to some of the sites. I originally booked a solo trip, but it got changed to a small group tour, which I didn’t realize in advance. However, everything worked out well. The driver and guide were very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the tour.

We first found Olive Sea Travel for our day tour of Athens for 25 people. They soon stepped up and provided transportation to and from airport, and throughout our stay in Athens. They even provided a rooftop Acropolis-view restaurant recommendation and set up the reservation for 33 of us, with the best view in the house. Dimitra and Vasili go above and beyond to provide personal and exceptional service, even coming out to meet us personally at the airport after so much planning from another country, and giving all our guests gifts. On our tour they took us to a wonderfully authentic restaurant for lunch where we ended up dancing together, and cementing many wonderful memories for all concerned. Yia sas paidia, and continue the wonderful work!

Our group of six had limited time in Athens and this was the perfect way to see all of the highlights and then some. Our fabulous driver, George, was skilled, accommodating, engaging, knowledgeable, and fun. It was great not having to worry about getting around or standing in lines for entrance tickets to the sites. Our lunch at a traditional Greek restaurant in the Plaka district was fantastic. Dimitra at Olive Sea promised a wonderful day in Athens and they certainly delivered! It may seem a little pricey at first blush, but it was worth every penny. Truly the way to enjoy an enriching, hassle-free day in Athens.

My friends and I had a great experience during the Delphi Private Tour. Dem was an awesome guide- he is extremely knowledgeable about all things Greece- mythology, history, culture, etc. He answered all of the questions we had and provided us with a thorough understanding of the sites we visited (Hosios Loukas & Delphi). We were comfortable the entire time (the luxury van was clean and spacious) and Dem was on time when picking us up during all parts of the trip. We had ample time to visit both sites and our lunch at Arachova was fantastic. I strongly recommend this tour to those who would like to visit Delphi at their own pace and would like to have their own personal tour guide. I would note that Dem was not able to physically join us at each of the sites since he was not licensed (he dropped us off and picked us up)- however this was NOT an issue as he filled us in on the history of both sites during the time we were traveling (which we had plenty). Strongly recommend this agency (extremely professional, responsive, and attentive) and strongly recommend Dem as a guide!

We were extremely lucky to be the only pair who booked a tour on the day we chose, so we were treated to an outstanding private tour by Nasos, one of the kindest and most knowledgeable people we were lucky enough to meet on our trip. He took us to the busiest and walking-intensive places first thing in the morning so they wouldn’t be too hot or crowded, which we REALLY appreciated. He treated us to delicious Grecian pastries, picked us flowers, suggested a fantastic lunch spot for freshly caught fish, and treated us basically like royalty all day. He had all kinds of information on Greek history and culture, and showed us many of his favorite “secret” spots that were full of powerful history. We felt totally spoiled by Nasos’s VIP treatment. He even gave us several GREAT suggestions of things to do on our next day in Athens, which we took him up on! Not only would I enthusiastically suggest his tour to any of my friends or family visiting Athens, but I would even take his tour again myself. Thank you for this wonderful experience!
