We had one day in Athens from a cruise ship. The six of us wanted to see all the highlights of Athens. Danae and Mary were professional in the set up and Kostas was a wonderful driver, supplying us with water during the hot day and opening the van door for us at each stop. Anastasia, our guide, was extremely... More

I booked a private tour for our group of 12 for our port day in Athens. Much cheaper and better than the tours offered by the cruise. The 19 passenger van is very new and clean. The driver always dropped and picked us at the closest spots to the attractions which helped because we had young kids on a hot... More

I booked the full day trip to Sparta for a surprise for my husbands 30th birthday. He has always wanted to visit Sparta. We went on the tour May 29th 2016. The tour guide (feel awful because I can't remember his name) met us at the hotel promptly at 8am. He was so friendly and helpful and informative. He put... More

We were met by Kostas off of Jewel of the Seas. Our tour was everything we expected and more. We saw everything we expected to see and several great additions to the tour. Kostas was knowledgeable and friendly and even made sure we were always comfortably supplied with water. It was a great day and far better value than a... More

Wow!! I thought I knew the history of Athens!! How wrong was I? We were met outside our Cruise Terminal having disembarked the Carnival Vista to be greeted by Apostolis who was to be our driver & tour guide. His knowledge and obvious passion for his city and history was truly amazing. He answered all of our questions and we... More

Today our family were treated to a wonderful day out with Athens Tours Greece and their fantastic guide Notis. Notis knew so much history and information about the city and all the sights.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
