Had a great day with Andreas. He was knowledgeable and very accommodating. Couldn’t ask for more....Fotis was so wonderful and very communicative.
We went to Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Agora and Parthenon Museum which is not to be missed!
Thanks Fotis and Andreas.
We will recommend anyone coming to Athens to tour with you!

Our group of four women wanted to view the best of Athens in a day - and we did much more than that! Rather than taking a "canned" tour, we got to decide beforehand which sites were of most interest to us. Our driver, Andreas, was not only the perfect gentleman but a capable guide who went far above what was expected to get us to and from our destinations in great style. Evi was our informative guide as we walked around the incredible ruins. She let us ask as many questions as we had, commented artfully, and took us at our own pace as we got to experience, rather than just hear information about, the many structures that have such significance to the entire world. Her enthusiasm was palpable. Fotis met us for lunch and made sure that we understood the menu and had the best lunch of our lives. The food was fresh and cooked perfectly, and the wine was smooth and tasty, the service impeccable. We couldn't have put together such an excursion for ourselves. Athens tours Fotis Kolliris is the perfect way to begin to enjoy Athens and all of Greece!

Thank you again Fotis and family for this occasion to visit Gravia,Greece. Sentimental meaning from heart. Fotis, timely on his pick up and return to Athens to avoid holiday traffic, with patiences. Nice comfortable room in his custom van with multiple features to occupy time in passing. Very professional and takes pride in his country. Knowing Fotis for years and seeing and hearing the excitement he has/had with all patrons makes returning to use his/family service makes my decision a bit easier. With Fotis and family knowing English also is a plus to communicate with, dealing with vendors with covid restrictions that request and require QCR codes or proof of vaccination to entry restaurants and historical sites. The cleanliness and freshness you have when entering his van means he/family are providing safety within Covid-19’s guidelines. Best wishes in all future endeavors and may God bless and keep you,family and Greece safe.🤗💖🙏

From the airport pick up to the Piraeus drop off, our time and tours with Athens Private Tours was wonderful! Andreas was waiting when we arrived and later shared a beautiful sunset tour with us. We visited the Acropolis, the Agra, and had a fabulous day of touring and adventure. Another day we drove to Delphi for a day of adventure and surprise. As we left the Delphi Museum, there to greet us was Fotis, our guide from several years ago and Andreas’ uncle. We had an extraordinary lunch and visit!
Fotis and his family go above and beyond to make sure their clients have the trip or tour of a lifetime!
We highly appreciate and recommend their knowledge and professionalism…..whether you are a couple or a family with children….your tour will be designed to highlight your interests.

In 2012 my husband and I enjoyed a trip to Greece and booked several transfers and tours with Fotis Kolliris. He provided us with superb service then and became a friend! We concluded our review of that trip like this, “If we get back to Athens, there is no question that we will meet with our friend Fotis!” Alas, Fotis retired, but his company is still going strong in the hands of his family. And the good news is that we did in fact “meet with our friend Fotis!” His nephew Andreas was our driver and, on the way to Meteora (highly recommended), we stopped for a visit and some Greek coffee with Fotis. It was one of the highlights of our trip to see this wonderful man again.

But you may not care about our friendship with Fotis and this review will tell you that his company is in capable hands. We made initial contact with his daughter Maria to arrange our tours and transfers. Just like the old days, she responded quickly. If fact, whenever we sent an email, we got a response almost immediately. This really helps in planning trips. Our driver Andreas was also excellent in the mold of his uncle Fotis. This is not a tour service per se, but rather provides private transportation to and from sites in Greece. Nevertheless, just like Fotis, Andreas briefed us on the upcoming sites and prepared us for our excursions. He made dining suggestions and was especially helpful in making sure we got the best sunset views in Meteora. This was despite the fact that MANY other people wanted the same views. He would drop us off and find us when we finished our viewing. He even loaned us his cell phone so we could contact him on his other phone when we finished visiting some sites.

On another day, Andreas learned of our interest in wines and tried mightily to arrange a winery visit for us. Unfortunately, it was harvest time and no one could fit us in. Still, it was nice of him to attempt to broaden our visit from what we had originally planned.

The importance of having a good and knowledgeable local driver became obvious when a sudden transit strike and a heavy rainstorm both hit Athens on the day we were returning from Meteora, causing a massive traffic tie up. If we had rented a car and tried to tackle the streets on our own, we would still be circling the ring road. Andreas used back routes and eventually got us to hotel.

This whole operation is professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. And If we get back to Athens, there is no question that we will meet with our friends Fotis and Andreas!

We selected a day trip to Delphi. Everyone in our family, consisting of 4 adults with very different tastes, loved our tour. Our driver went beyond friendly and engaging to make us feel as a part of his family. He offered to stop for coffee or ice cream along the way - we took him up on the latter and he was so unnecessarily kind as to pay for the treats. He was very responsive in adapting to our pace, adjusting our itinerary as needed. After visiting Delphi and the museum, we had a wonderful lunch with seats providing a fantastic view of the area. He also gave us some terrific recommendations for dinner and things to do.

We used Athens Private Tours for transfers to and from the airport and the cruise terminal. They are very accommodating, reliable and professional. Our incoming flight was 3 hrs late and we were picked up by the owner, Fotis who gave us so much useful information. His nephew, Chris took us to see all the attractions in Athens. For someone who is not a tour guide he was very knowledgeable. Chris took us to this wonderful spot for simple gyros that was probably the best meal we had in Greece. Maria was the point of contact via email. She was so helpful and responsive. It might be a little less expensive to use public transportation and tour Athens in your own, but their prices are reasonable and the time and stress they save make it worth a few extra euro.

We booked and rebooked our trip to Greece three times due to COVID and each time Ilianna and Maria were so helpful with choosing our tours and transfers with their very prompt and cheery emails. We booked a total of four airport/hotel transfers during our stay in Greece and each time Andreas was there on time to meet us and chauffeur us to the airport or hotel. He was full of information and special insights into Athens and Greece. He even stopped at a local phone shop to help us purchase a SIMM card for our mobile phone.

Chris was our driver for our full-day Argolis tour in the Peloponnese and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him. He was very knowledgeable and timed our many stops perfectly including lunch at a wonderful restaurant in Nafplio.

Over all a very professional, delightful service that contributed greatly to making Greece a memorable trip for us. You come away feeling part of the family. We are already talking about returning to tour Meteora and Delphi with them.

Our first time in Athens and Maria was so helpful making sure we got from the airport to our hotel and then set up a tour day that fit our needs. Our driver, Andreas, was wonderful explaining the sites we visited, where we should focus our time and then was always right there waiting when we were ready to move on. And to top it off, he gifted us some lovely books that bring our vacation home with us. Highly recommend Fotis Kolliris Tours!

Still the same fabulous service and family feel with Athens private tours! We used the same tour service 9 years ago and yes is was too long in between visit to beautiful Athens. They are are same family owned and operated! Longevity means quality service. They arranged everything, transfers from the cruise ship to the hotel, to the attractions, to the airport. They do it all which made it so easy on us. Their recommendations for place to eat was spot on. We weren’t rushed and visited many very cool places. The staff was exceptional! The company’s mantra is giving the best possible experience at a fair price. They are honest and very competitive in pricing. I honestly can’t say enough. 9 years later, the quality and professionalism is still top notch. P.s. the can handle groups and they provide tours all around Greece 🇬🇷. Feel confident that you will be well cared for.
