My husband and I used George's service for our transport to and from the Athens airport as well as for a day trip to Delphi. We had a great time because of George's service! Nicholas picked us up from the airport and immediately made us feel welcome in Greece. He worked hard to find our "off the beaten path" hotel and was very informative and kind. Kostas was our driver the rest of the trip and he was fantastic! He told us all about the history we were seeing on our drive to Delphi and back in an entertaining way and made sure we had everything we needed. He was able to give us excellent small side experiences because of his expert knowledge about the timing of the drive. Driving with Kostas was like driving with an old friend. By the time he took us back to the airport, we were quite sad to leave him! Hiring George's taxi service was the best decision we made for the whole trip and I recommend them wholeheartedly.

We hired George's service based on the many TripAdvisor reviews we'd seen here, and we were not disappointed. Our driver, Kostas, was very prompt, professional, and helpful. He was happy to take us wherever we wanted, and amenable to changes as the weather permitted. We went to Delphi, Cape Sounion, and Aegina Island. He pointed us to good restaurants and things to see. We felt very safe and reassured having him as our guide. He also educated us about Greece and Athens, historically and politically. It was a great experience for our family.

We were visiting our son who was studying on the island of Aegina, so we had a disjointed schedule for our trip. We used Athens as our home base for touring.

Prior to our trip a friend recommended George's Taxi. By email with Nicholas, we arranged for two separate days of touring. The price and ease of arranging and tailoring our trip was fantastic. We got just what we wanted and were looking for. Perfect.

Our first day in Athens we engaged George's Taxi to meet us at the ferry from Aegina at Port of Pireaus. There was Spiros with a sign with our name--we were in great hands and spent a wonderful, informative, and busy day touring Athens and Sounio--the Temple of Posiedon. Top flight. Cannot be more pleased or think of any greater compliments than to say we were treated very well and had made a great friend and acquaintance in Spiros.

Several days later we were back in Athens and arranged to tour the Peloponese with George's Taxi. Again, Spiros met us at our hotel and took us to Corinth, Mycenae, Napfilo and Euripades. To have a resident who knows and loves Greece share with us their inside knowledge and understanding is exactly what we wanted and what we got. But even more...

Look no further. This is the group you want to use. Ease of arrangement. Confidence in being there. First class cars and even better drivers and hosts. First Class.

I have hired George's Taxi Service on several occasions for transfers and tours in Athens and his service is second to none. Nicholas is professional and on time. It was nice to have an English speaking guide to show us all of the highlights of Athens. I would highly recommend him for both private and group tours. Thank you once again.

We were visiting Athens on a day tour during a cruise on Cunard Queen Victoria. We found George's taxis on the website when we were looking for transport in Athens. I use a wheelchair and cannot get on coaches. We received a very prompt and friendly email from Nicholas and booked a taxi for the day.

George met us at the port in the morning in his clean yellow Mercedes.. He helped my wife with my wheelchair and even had bottles of water and guides for us. There was a lot of traffic problems in Athens that day and the police had blocked a lot of the streets. Because he knew how to avoid the traffic he tooks us to all the popular tourist attractions. He was happy to wait as long as we wanted while we went to the Acropolis and The Museum. We spent a couple of hours there. It was a lovely sunny day and he took us along the coast and he was happy to stop anywhere to take pictures. He also took us along the coast. The scenery was wonderful. He was so friendly and told us about the history of all the places we visited. He made sure we got back to the port on time. We could not have been happier with the service and would highly recommend it to anybody. Thank you Nicholas and George.
