“Wow!! Couldn't have done this on our own-- thanks, George!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

With a recent cruise to the Mediterranean, it was one of our best decisions to engage in a private tour with George instead of the big-bus, cruise-ship option. George made the day amazingly more productive and fun. He was very knowledgeable about history, culture, and helped us to maximize our time in this great city. George would give the background on a specific area and then give us time to explore. He took us to a local lunch that was unbelievable. George, thanks for adding so much to the trip of a lifetime!

“Georges Taxi Service Athens- 13/14/15/16 September”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I cannot recommend Georges Taxis highly enough - the service was superb in every way. From the very first enquiry the communication was professional and detailed. George our driver, who collected myself and my daughter from the airport, and then over the next two days took us to Cape Sounion and then the full day Athens tour, was fabulous. He is knowledgeable, courteous and really makes you feel that nothing is too much trouble. We could not possibly have seen all the sights withough his guidance and brilliant driving skills, he is also a 'fountain of knowledge'. We were sad to say goodbye to him. Praise also to Dimitri who collected us from the hotel for the airport transfer at 4am, any one that friendly and polite at 4am deserves a 'well done'.

Brilliant company that I recommend 100% - just book them, I am sure that you will be as delighted as we were.

“Best Tourist Day in Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

My husband and I reserved George's Taxi for a day to see the major sites starting with the Acropolis. We were lucky enough to have the real George as our guide and driver. He arrived promptly and remained courteous throughout the entire day (no road rage in the cragmire of Athens traffic). He gave us a thorough history of the Acropolis and Ancient Agora without boring us with too many facts. The restaurant that he suggested for lunch served typical greek food. I was so delighted when we arrived not only was it in Kolonaki Square - but there was not one tourist in sight and it was delicious !!!!! Call George for a day of sight seeing or transit - you will be gald you did! We like him so much we even arranged for him to take us to the airport when we left!

“Fantastic Makis from George's Taxis !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Just had 3 days in Athens - picked up by the fabulous Makis who was so friendly and helpful and dropped at our hotel - flight was late arriving but he was still there waiting ! Next day did a half day Athens tour - he was so knowledgeable and very helpful - decided to do the afternoon at Cape Sounion but got half way there and one of our party got a migraine and we had to return to Athens. Mikas was very concerned and rang three times that night to check on our friend - above and beyond the call of duty ! We also had an airport drop off and were so pleased to see our friend Mikas on time and smiling - he even gave the girls a gift. Can't say enough good things about our experience with George's, and in particular Mika's, highly recommend both as very professional and helpful! Yamas Mikas you're the best !!!!!

“Sincere Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Without a doubt, the service we received from the team at George’s Taxi was the best we have ever received in all of our travels. I know that sounds like an exaggeration, but it is true. From start to finish, we had a top notch experience. We booked a number of different services including transfers to/from the airport, a trip out to Sounion to the Temple of Poseidon, a tour of Athens and transfers to the ferry and everything went perfectly despite some challenges of delayed plans which the team took in stride.

We were met at the airport by Dimitri and he really became the perfect “host” for our trip. I think what struck us the most was not just the great service we received, but how heartfelt and genuine it was. He truly wanted us to have a good time and he made sure everything went smoothly.
We decided to venture outside of Athens to Sounion and I am so glad we did. Dimitri was the perfect host to show us places off the beaten track just outside of Athens and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip capped off by a great visit to the Temple and the perfect lunch at a little taverna suggested by Dimitri.

During our lunch, we got a call that the couple who was joining us had missed their connecting flight and rather than arriving in Athens at 1500, would be arriving the next morning at 4am! But, the team took this in stride and were on the spot with making sure they adjusted. Dimitri, himself, got up and met our party at 4am and made sure they arrived at our hotel just in time to shower before helping us transfer to our ferry for Santorini.

Upon our return to Athens, we wanted to tour the city and once again, Dimitri provided the best service suggesting options, but being flexible to meet our interests. We toured the city and hit the main sites, but again the highlight was his great suggestion for lunch – a perfect taverna off the beaten track that we never would have found without him.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about this team. Yes, the service was great, but I was most impressed by how genuine and sincere they were from the time we booked through to our last goodbye. I only wish a service like this was in every city!
