We were lucky to have Jonny as our guide for a 1-day tour up the coast from Athens to the Temple of Poseidon, and a 2-day tour to Delphi and Meteora. He is fun, flexible and knowledgable. The car was comfy and roomy. And, he knows everyone... pretty much everywhere we went he knew other drivers or the restaurant owners etc. He steered us to wonderful restaurants and a lovely hotel. He also has well researched videos on a mounted tablet computer which gave context and history for each of the sites we visited.

We did the 7 day private tour (Argolida, Sparti/Mystras, Diros Caves, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora, Vergina, Dion & Thermopylae) with John as our driver.

From start to finish we had an exceptional time and the whole family enjoyed the trip.

John is very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and always had lots of facts and advice about both the main sites visited and the countryside that we passed through each day. It's clear he is very passionate about Greece and wants to tell you everything about it.

Being a private tour, John is 100% accommodating to the schedule you want, he will suggest what might be best based on his vast knowledge but will adapt to your wishes. Want to spend an extra hour here, fine, want to stop and have lunch now, fine, fancy staying in bed a bit later tomorrow, A-OK.

The hotels selected along the way were good and each evening John would recommend a few places that he knows are worth visiting for a nice dinner. Of course if you want to go for a quick pizza or to a bar instead, it's all up to you. We never felt John's suggestions were more than friendly advice from someone who knows the best places in each town.

The tour was just the right length each day. Clearly the distance from A to B is not it John's control but it never felt like we were too long in the car for any one period and the journey's were broken up nicely. Nor did we ever reach the end of a days driving very late (always in the hotel around late afternoon / early evening each day). Furthermore, the car itself was comfortable and clean (a Mercedes for our trip) and being bright yellow, easy to spot in the car parks after visiting various sites!

John went out of his way to help with everything we needed on the tour and even provided hotel recommendations for our stay in Athens afterwards and we used him and JG Athens tours for all of our transfer needs after the tour had ended (various trips to and from the airport to fly to islands/home).

John is a great gentleman and highly recommended

John was incredible! I thought I was $5 short of my fare before I got into the taxi, and he told me that he would still take me as he has a daughter and would hope that someone would do the same for her.

He played a video about the history of Greece so that I could be entertained whilst I rode with him, and he gave me suggestions for the airport.

10/10 would recommend!

My wife and I booked a day trip from Athens to Delphi with JG Tours. It was an excellent choice.

John, our driver, was wonderful. He is an experienced driver who has worked in New York and Greece. He is a true professional who knows his work. I’m sure he could drive a doubled decker bus through the eye of a needle. He knows all the best routes to get to the major sites. We had an easy trip out to Delphi and back to Athens

John is a great guy. As he will tell you he, isn’t a professional tour guide, he’s a driver, but he has tons of great stories. You will never be bored in his company, and he makes the time between stops pass quickly. He clearly cares a lot about his customers. He makes sure that you are comfortable, has great recommendations for places to stop, and where to get a bite to eat. He seems to be friends with everyone and as a result you get treated like royalty in his company.

We enjoyed our trip out to Delphi so much we asked John to take us to Corinth, Mycenae, and Nafplion the next day.

The bottom line is this: you should book with JG Athens Tours. If you want to zip around all Greece in comfort then you need to book with John. He is a big hearted, funny guy, who takes a lot of pride in his business, and will be make sure you have the best possible time while you are in Greece.

I have used JG tours as far back as 2006, and began using their services in 2023. My family and I were collected from Athens International and taken to one of the southern suburbs. George our driver was wonderful, warm and kind and went above and beyond in every way. That night I arranged that someone that was forgotten at the airport be collected by JG Tours, and it was done flawlessly and punctually. JG Tours are my go-to service providers for any related form of transportation. they are reliable, punctual, professional and I trust them full.

John from JG accommodated our tight schedule and combined two tours into one full day 12 hour tour. It was amazing! All the planning via email was easily done and John responded to my questions quickly. The day of the tour George, our excellent driver, arrived 10 minutes early and was so friendly and ready to get going. All during the day George gave us a fabulous Greek history commentary - including videos during transit to Delphi and Cape Sounion. His instructions as to how to tour on our own were invaluable. And when we finished earlier than our meeting time he was there in minutes to escort us to a great lunch spot overlooking the Corinthian Sea. George was an expert at avoiding traffic jams and gave a constant commentary as he did it. We were tired at the end of the day but full of over 2500 years of Greek history. Perfect for our first time Greece visiting friends and entertaining for us on our 3rd visit to the Athens area. The day was perfect as was JG’s efforts. Our thanks to John and George for making our visit to the Athens area a special memory!

JG Athens tour was amazing to work with prior to and during the tour. This was the second time in 8 years we used JG Athens Tours and they didn’t disappoint with their professionalism. They customized our tour to what we wanted to see and worked with our time in port. The driver was knowledgeable, courteous and had great recommendations for lunch. The car was clean and well maintained.

We booked four tours (Athens, Sounion, Delphi, Epidaurus & Nafplio) with JG Athens Tours & Mr. John personally drove us. At first he explained to us how traffic works in Greece. Also that if someone is afraid of heights to pass it on to him. This in connection with certain routes that can sometimes be high in the mountains, so that he can take this into account. Mr. John had bottled water ready for us, and was always on time for our tours. After we got on the bus, he explained the chosen tour of the day and sometimes accompanied it with a movie. On the way to our destination we stopped at some places that you would normally not know as a tourist and also talked a bit about it. We enjoyed these tours every day, and if we could give 11 stars then JG Athens Tours would get this from us. Mr. John is a responsible driver with more than 40 years of experience. We would like to thank Mr. John for the fantastic moments we experienced with JG Athens Tours. Thank you for everything and until our next holiday in Greece.

From Raisa & the family :)
