“Wonderful day trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We found out about George's taxi from Matt Barrett's Greece travel website. We wanted to take a day trip to Corinth and sent an email to George. We received an immediate reply stating that they would be glad to drive us. Theodore picked us up at our hotel and shared lots of wonderful information about the area during our entire drive. After learning more about what our interests were, he took us to a couple places he thought we might like to see. His recommendation for a place to eat was fantastic -- the food great and the view amazing. We definitely appreciated his attention to us, and at the end of the day, we arranged to have George's taxi come to take us to the airport at the end of our visit to Athens. Trustworthy, reliable, and knowledgeable would be the best description of the service. Definitely recommend!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Our driver for the day was Kostas and he was superb. He has a wealth of local and historical knowledge, very friendly and helpful and provided a great and extremely interesting tour of Athens for the day, that even kept the kids interested throughout! The experience was topped off by a visit to local and low priced/great quality local restaurant for lunch finished off by Kostas treating the kids to ice cream for the journey back to the ship. . Dont be tempted to pay the cruise ship prices (equivalent royal caribbean price was $1500!!!!!, vs €225) this was a safe, great and worthwhile experience and highly recommended!!!!

“Private day tour of Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Had an excellent day tour of Athens with George (the famous taxi driver) from taxigreece@yahoo.com. We were on a cruise ship and rather than taking a cruise excursion we decide on a private tour with George. We had an excellent day and George looked after us very well. We visited the Parthenon (we were 1st thru the gates) and many more sites including the changing of the guard and George took us to a lovely Greek restaurant for lunch. We would highly recommend this company to anyone visiting Athens especially if on a cruise ship as we saw so much more than what the ship could offer.

“FIVE STAR SERVICE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

On our recent trip to Athens for a 14 day cruise, we chose George's Taxi Service and we had the best service ever! From Nicholas picking us up from the Airport to our hotel, personalized service from the hotel to the port, and at the end of the cruise to pick us up, back to the hotel, then back to the airport the next day! The highlight was when George took us to Cape Sounion to see the Greek Temple of Poseidon. A wonderful half day trip full of insight to Greece and it's people. Plus we stopped and had the most amazing Gyros! George gave us maps, a book of Athens and even advice on some shopping. (I never could find my way back to that jewelry store George!) Thank you for all that you did and we can't wait to be back in Greece!!!

“Day in Athens--Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Thank you so very much for the excellent Athens experience. We found your services through Rick Steve’s’ Travel Europe recommendations, and Trip Advisor. WOW! We were blown away at the professionalism, local knowledge, and ability to go at our pace. By far, the very best guide/taxi service through our entire holiday vacation. The local lunch experience was simply perfect as well!
My husband and I were amazed at the perfect service throughout the day. Tremendous and worth every dollar paid. George was attentive, and simply a delight.

I would highly, highly recommend the use of your services to anyone coming to Athens! It was the highlight of our vacation!
