Overview
Our tour is unique because in a very limited time it gives a great amount of the experiences of the island featuring the most important places and balancing well between the touristic and the traditional side of the island. Our guides are experienced in providing information in the spots we visit and the local culture and tradition as well as indicating the best places for pictures, dinning and shopping if required by our clients

After switching buses three times, we ended up with another group of tourists who spoke French. Our guide, who was from Paris as I recall, catered more to the French-speaking tourists than to the English-speaking tourists. With a very rudimentary knowledge of French I could get the gist of what he was saying, and it was mostly not repeated in English. The guide was very personable, but we wanted to learn about Athens and what we were seeing. I complained to him at our lunch stop, and he said he would do better, but he did not. I have no complaints about the itinerary, it just would have been more enjoyable it we got the information in a language we could understand. Two things: 1. It is not fair if we were moved because they wanted more people on that bus. 2. I am sorry I did not review sooner, but somehow missed this opportunity when it was sent.

Contrary to the good reviews we have read on Trip Advisor, this trip was disorganized and the company did not deliver what the customers had paid for. Our group spent a lot of time sitting around waiting for the tour to begin. Upon boarding the bus, John, our tour guide, was training a new guide, Julia. John and Julia were in conversation and sites we passed were not pointed out. We did not stop at the Temple of Zeus nor did we stop in Castella as listed on the itinerary. We were driving past the Temple of Zeus, when someone asked our guides what that structure was, John had to stop his conversation with Julia to tell us it was the Temple of Zeus as we passed it. When Julia was collecting money on the bus and talking to customers, we could not hear any comments John said. At the Acropolis, John turned the group over to a local guide. She held our group up by insisting on waiting for another ten people. She was told numerous times this was the complete group. After our group stated they would move on without her, she relented and started the tour. Her delaying the tour reduced our time at the Acropolis. The money paid for this guide was not worth it due to the short time we had at the site. John stated his boss would meet us in Plaka to discuss the tours shortcomings and buy the group a drink of tsipouro, but she did not show up. This tour was disorganized and we did not see the sites as listed on the company’s itinerary. We contacted the company privately expressing our concerns but received no response from them.

Dear client Please resend your email as I have looked into finding it but was not possible. We appreciate the effort to tell us your concern but we do not feel that a one star is either representative of our service or of your own review. We do need to train the new escorts and this is the reason why they are always with an experienced guide at your service.Some days may be stressful especially if we need to work around unforeseen circumstances and to do a spot panoramic instead if we know for example this will disrupt the overall tour. As for the tsipouro treat, this indeed happened to all clients that were with us in the restaurant - this i know as i was there indeed ,,, obviously for those that decided to go shopping instead it would not really be possible to locate you or even to bring a bottle of alcohol in the bus (i hoe this at least makes sense) We apologize for not being happy on this instance but still please allow me to believe your review was mostly written in anger rather with a fair clear mind - regards from Piraeus Express Bus

We booked with this company, received confirmation, paid our fees, and they did not show up. Left us standing in the parking lot with no tour for the day and 2 hours wasted waiting for them. Received notice that they had not been notified by Viator of our booking and another notice that the tour had been cancelled.(Did not receive the notice until we were back on the ship later that day) Do not know who to believe. Had to get a taxi to take us around to the sights. Found out this is the best way inAthens as it is very crowded and if you have a good driver he will fill you in on all the history and get you much closer to all the important sights.

Dear passenger, never have we intentionally not collected or not informed our customers of cancellation. We were not notified for the booking at all if you would like us to investigate further please email us with a booking reference as we do doubt the event and we have no details to contradict your verdict or any of your contact details

We have chosen this trip because it starts in the cruise port, near to our ship and has much better price than any of the trips offered by Royal Caribbean. The timing was absolutely adjusted with our arrival and departure times. And we have seen most of the top Athens attractions. Our guide Christine was a great surprise: Perfect English, punctuality, super coordination with the bus driver for letting us off and on the bus at different locations and dense traffic - everything with a relaxed and friendly smile. A trip to be highly recommended.
