    I had two transfers, one from the airport to downtown Athens and return. It was a great experience because the drivers were on time, professionals, pleasant, friendly and very kind. The cars are very comfortable and clean. I highly recommend Welcome Pickups and I will use them again!

    Used the metro quite a lot in Athens ,found it really efficient and unbelievably cheap ,5 days unlimited travel worked out about £2 a day,this included bus ,trams and trolley bus ,I encountered no problems on the metro ,but I've been on most every metro system in Europe so I am aware of scams that take place as is my brother who was with me ,I get were people are coming from about pickpockets and thieves on overcrowded metro cars ,actually witnessed some pretty theatrical and childish distraction tactics ,you could spot the thieves miles away ,pretty sad bunch really ,my twin brother Stephen and I avoided crowed metro cars ,only carried our phones with money in phone wallet ,had nothing in pockets ,certainly nothing that thieves go for such as passports,money or phone in pocket ,it makes me so mad when I see individuals with bulging phone or purse in back pocket ( victims ) ,just use common sense and be on your metal and using the metro becomes a positive experience.

    The train goes to the top of the mountain and from the top you get a wonderful view over Athens. The view over the acropolis was not as good as I was expecting and it can be ruined by the low winter sun behind the acropolis which means the sun glare is too great to take good photos. Taking the funicular is much easier and quicker than walking.

    Always on time, very kind and friendly . Save the phone number and enjoy your peace of mind while travelling.
    A big thank you for your help it was very nice meeting you!

    My family and I stopped in Athens in mid October 2022 from a cruise ship and luckily ran into Leo outside the cruise terminal. For an extremely reasonable price, he took the 4 of us all over Athens, hitting all of the spots we wanted to see, as well as some we didn't know about (like the changing of the guard at the palace and alot of great local spots with fabulous views). Leo was a warm, wonderful, friendly and very knowledgeable man who showed us a great time and got us back to our ship with time to spare. From his knowledge of the city (taking us to a local church that was stunning and then buying us baklava and ice cream - which was delicious), to helping us buy combo tickets to visit several historical sites, including the Acropolis, it was a fantastic day from start to finish. You would be lucky to take a tour with Leo if you are in Athens - highly recommend!

    If you want to avoid large tour buses and long lines, go with Athens Taxi Travel! We had a great experience. Our driver Elias was on time to pick us up at our hotel, the Mercedes was impeccably clean and the a/c was working perfectly. Elias was very informative and spoke perfect English. He gave us some good tips on visiting Athens and plenty of times to visit each monument. Overall, this was a great experience and we are glad we used a private Taxi.

    Monica and Kostas are the best! They are very friendly and caring. The communication from beginning to end was exceptional. Kostas picked us up at the airport and was patiently waiting for us. We flew into Athens around 12am and we appreciated having a reliable transportation. We felt safe and Kostas gave us many recommendations for Athens. When our trip came to and end, there was a strike the day we were flying out from Athens and all public transportation was cancelled. We didn't have a way to get to the airport and we were very worried. I reached out last minute to Monica and she was so accommodating! She was able to help us and we made it safely to the airport. Both Kostas & Monica made us feel welcomed and like we were family! It was such a great experience and we are so happy to have made great friends in Athens! Highly recommend their services as they really care about their customers, as well as go above and beyond for them!

    We booked Lorenzo via message on Facebook. He replies quickly, and also tells you what is included and prices for the trips.

    We were on a cruise and Lorenzo met us at the cruise terminal, he has your name on a card ready for you.

    Lorenzo is a very good guide for you to use to visit the main sights of Athens, he explains to you in detail about the sites and also he gives you the history of them.

    He is always talking about where we are,where we are going, and where to go and what to do when we get to the sites. The book he has on the parthenon is amazing.

    Lorenzo stops and gets you water a few times on the way round on this full day tour.
    He started our tour going to some views of the city before heading off to the parthenon, here he explains the history and gets his book out as well. You will not be disappointed.
    We saw the temple of Zeus,
    The ancient Olympic stadium.
    The changing of the guard.
    We also had freetime in Athens to shop or eat and drink before we were taken back to our cruise liner.
    This was a very good day.
    Lorenzo is a very nice gentleman, he has done a lot of research, and he is very passionate about these tours that he has put together. Nothing is too much bother, if you want to see other things that is not on the list, he will accommodate you providing you have time.
    Lorenzo speaks Greek, Albanian, English, German, Italian.
    I would recommend Lorenzo to everyone.

    The metro in Athens is good,it's certainly cheap and it's a great way to visit some of the great tourist sites of this ancient city.
    I know people hark on about pickpockets and thieves ,righty so ,on any metro in Europe I've been ,and I've been on them all it's a common problem but just be vigilant and aware of your surroundings and you'll be ok ,positives outweigh the negatives ,a really good metro system ,well worth travelling on if you're planning a trip to Athens .
