    We were two seniors in our 70s with one day to see everything in Athens before joining a cruise.

    Our driver George arrived to collect us from our hotel, Brown Acropol in very good time.

    He had a comfortable Mercedes with plenty of legroom and great air con, very much needed as the temperature outside was about 37 degrees

    Our whole day private tour began at 8.00am and finished at 4.00pm and while we had thought was expensive, it was in fact VERY good value and worth every penny.

    George was a very safe driver in the busy Athens traffic. At each stop he suggested the amount of time most people stayed and was happy for us to take as long as we liked.

    He was very attentive, opening doors, checking we were comfortable and providing us with nicely chilled water bottles

    George was very knowledgeable about Athens and the many venues we visited or drove past, explaining some things with a nicely illustrated book. He gave us such great background information we didn’t feel a licensed guide would have been any better at any of the sites we visited.

    George had our tickets for each historic site and took us to the entry points, showing us where we needed to go. He picked us up very promptly from each stop, easily coordinated using WhatsApp. When we came down from the Acropolis the wrong way he quickly sorted another pick up spot and guided us to it.

    The tour included a delicious prearranged authentic restaurant lunch - Greek salad, pork gyros, baklava, soft drink or beer.

    It was a great day, perfectly organised, both very interesting and very enjoyable. Thank you George.
    The high July temperatures would have been too much for us on our own, so it was the perfect way for us to “Do Athens in a day”. We would absolutely recommend the tour to anyone.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Athens on our way to Crete. Costa was friendly, punctual and an abundance of information. He made sure to maximize the time we had and worked with us some great food before getting us back to the airport on time. We highly recommend this trip!

    Amazing tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and added a lot to our experience. We gained insight into Greek history and mythology. Delphi was incredible and the lunch in Arachova was delicious.

    This half a day tour was a great crash course in Greek culture. Our driver Manos was very knowledgeable and passionate about all the history behind the monuments we saw and this made for an excellent 1/2 day of sight seeing for us! He was cordial, helpful and very accommodating during our tour. We were able to visit the Greek Agora, Roman Agora, Parthenon, Olympic stadium and see the change of the guards at the presidential residence. The vehicle was comfortable and stocked with enough water for the hot weather. We finished our tour with a delicious lunch in an authentic Greek restaurant. The food was plentiful and the service was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour and Manos in particular.

    We did the Acropolis walking tour including the Parthenon and museum. It was 4 hours, which was the perfect length . Our tour guide Anna was engaging and informative and enriched our experience. We would highly recommend her.

    What a wonderful experience! Our tour guide, Dani, was so kind and engaging. She did a great job sharing all the stories of the Gods and was very aware of the heat and made sure to try to keep everyone as comfortable as possible. We have already recommended this tour to our family members coming next month. A lovely way to spend the morning, seeing some of the most notable sites through a fun perspective. Thank you!

    I had an awesome experience with Dynamis Transportation during my recent trip to Athens. Their service was top-notch from start to finish. The booking process was smooth and efficient, and their customer service representatives were friendly and helpful. The drivers were professional and punctual, which made everything stress-free. The vehicles were clean, comfortable, and well-maintained, which made for a great ride. What stood out the most was their deep knowledge of Athens, which added an appreciated touch to the journey. I was able to learn more about the city and its rich history during my travels. I highly recommend this company to anyone needing transportation services in Athens. Their commitment to customer satisfaction is evident in their high-quality service.

    We had an amazing experience during this tour. Walking apostle Paul’s footsteps was probably one of our favorite tours in Greece. Pericles was great, very knowledgeable and kind. We highly recommend it!

    Fantastic tour. Theo was an excellent tour guide. It was a long drive and he kept everyone entertained. Despite being a full tour the bus was comfortable. Since our apartment was off the beaten path some we had to walk to get the bus. The driver and Theo made sure to drop us off at the best path to walk back from. I really felt that they cared about myself and my teen daughter,

    The stops at both the beach club and the temple far exceeded my expectations. The meal I had at the beach was probably the best meal I had in three weeks in Europe, the sunset and views at the temple cannot be missed.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of The Acropolis. I knew I could have just bought my own tickets and toured by ourselves, but very happy With my purchase. The tour guide was very helpful in navigating the very crowded area, pointing out all the history through good stories along the way up to the top. Also helped to know good places in the shade to sit and grab water along the way. Definitely worth the $$ for a first time visitor to Greece.

    This was one of our favorite days in Greece. Giannis was wonderful - he was so professional and knowledgeable about the area and the history. The lake was beautiful and clean. Giannis took us to a terrific restaurant overlooking the sea before we went to the Temple of Poseidon. He kept the car cool for us especially on such a warm day. We highly recommend this tour.

    First class all the way! The bus ride was comfortable and incredibly informative! Our guide, Mariana Tsigaridou was beyond informative. She linked the past to the present, giving relevant meaning to history we saw and experienced on the Oracle of Delphi trip. She made the day easy with clear instructions and guiding us gracefully through historical fact and lessons from memory. There were no questions that she couldnt answer!

    Fantastic way to spend the day. Knowledgable and courteous driver. Especially since there is AC and water in the van, it was nice to come back to a cool car after visiting each site. We were picked up and dropped off at the cruise port. Definitely worth it, would recommend.

    Our guide was excellent and the tour was seamless from pick-up at our hotel to drop off. The cost is high, but when you see the massive crowds and lines, you appreciate the ability to have a private guide who explains everything and a driver who gets you in and out without delay. Communication from the tour provider was consistently strong, with all questions promptly answered.
