My wife and I are nearing the end of a two-week trip to Turkey and Greece. We are spending our free day riding with Stratos in a very clean and tidy Mercedes taxi. We were introduced to him through our ships tour guide Tara. He picked us up at our hotel at 7:00 a.m. in order to drive to our first stop by 9:00 a.m. through all of the traffic of downtown Athens. We made it to the first stop which was a train station where we boarded a three car train to Kalarita. All the while we were traveling to the train he was explaining all of the sites and places that we were seeing and answering our questions We became quite good friends over that period of time. He has spent time in the US and spoke English very well despite being encumbered by covid masks. He had quoted a price before we left and when we got back he stuck with that price even though we were on the road and traveling for a total of 11 hours. He made a side trip to help us locate an extra suitcase for our travel home. He introduced us to a local restaurant in the middle of nowhere in the mountains where we had a most wonderful Greek lunch. All of our time with him was productive and informative and educational. He took us to many places we would not have otherwise been able to visit. Including a monastery in the mountains, a trip to a memorial in the mountains where tribute was paid to 8 00 Greeks who were executed by the Nazis during world war II on December 13th 1943. I won't write a book in this review but I will say that he was cordial honest true to his word very patient with us and just an all around nice guy. When we arrived back at our hotel he quoted the exact same price that he had earlier quoted even including the extra stops had no additional charge We had no qualms about tipping him accordingly. I would strongly refer Stratos to anyone who enjoys personal attention and good quality service.

I could not have asked for a better travel partner than Spiros from George’s Taxi. We did a few trips together and he was very punctual and knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. Bonus that everyone speaks very good English! As a solo traveller I found the company and staff to be the best help for my travels. George and Nicholas were also very quick to respond to my emails with quotes and advice. Thank you for a lovely trip and I will definitely use your services again!

Greetings, fellow travelers - In October, my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful voyage with Azamara Cruises that called at ports on the Greek mainland as well as on several islands. While I could certainly sing the praises of Azamara, I am writing here to sing the praises of a company that helped us get where we needed and wanted to go in Athens and ensured that we left Greece with very positive memories - and at least one new friend. That Company is George’s Taxi, which is much more than a taxi service. Having had hip surgery last year, I wanted to be sure we had a reliable cab company meet us at the airport to take us to our hotel in Piraeus before the cruise and meet us after the cruise to take us back to the airport. In searching Trip Advisor and other internet sources, I became acquainted with George’s Taxi, which is recommended by Trip Advisor and Rick Steves, among others. Needing no better recommendations than that, I contacted George’s by email and next day I received a very kind email from Nicholas, one of the company’s management team, giving their tariff schedule and indicating availability of a driver to meet us upon arrival, which they certainly did. We decided to do the 12 day cruise and take an extra day at the end to tour Athens. Here’s where George’s Taxi really showed its capabilities and professionalism. After deciding not to take the ship’s tour as we had throughout the cruise, we called Nicholas at the last minute and arranged for a combined private tour of Athens and Corinth. Our driver on that trip was Stratos, one of the most knowledgeable, professional, accommodating and friendly guides we had in all of Greece. While he tells you up front that he can’t accompany you into the sites, Stratos made sure we were well-briefed before we got there. The results of his attention and care resulted in a wonderful trip to Corinth but as we were enjoying our time there so much, we returned to Athens later than I had anticipated. Because of the lateness of the hour and knowing it would take a good while for me to walk up to the Acropolis, I asked him to just drive around a bit and we’d view the Parthenon and other attractions from street level. Stratos was having no part of that! He was determined I should see the Acropolis from the top - as it should be seen! After learning that I had a state issued handicap parking card as a result of my operation, he and my wife marched right up to the admissions office and obtained a permit for us to use the handicapped elevator to get to the top. He must have been quite convincing because they even gave us complimentary admission to the historic site! Needless to say, we had a great time at the historic sites and taking in all the views of Athens from those heights. Stratos made it happen and at the end of the day , we felt like we not only had a great tour, but we’d made a new friend in Stratos. We would certainly recommend that future travelers to Greece use George’s both for transportation and for private tours. Wishing all of you safe and rewarding travels, Cruisinpro

Seen the reviews for George's Taxi and decided to book for our November cruise. Driver arrived early and waited for me (check out line was so long). Driver was professional and lovely. Had a lovely chat on our drive to the port. 100% would use again. Prices superb as well!

Incredible company and drivers. I used George’s Taxi for a half-day (5-hour) tour of Athens with Dimitris as my driver. Words cannot express how amazing my experience was! Dimitris spoke perfect English and gave me an extremely informative/educational tour of the entire city. Thank you so much Dimitris and George’s Taxi for giving me such a memorable and enjoyable introduction to Athens!!
