We visited Athens in October 2013 as part of our cruise. For this Port we chose to treat ourselves to a private tour with the addition of a private tour guide and we joined the group of our friends who booked with Greek Taxi Tours. We usually take the ship’s tours but we had a private tour in Ephesus and were very happy with the experience so we thought we would do it again in Athens. We were very excited and ready to have a great time.
Unfortunately things didn’t turn out quite the way we expected.
We were picked up from our cruise ship on time and started our tour. Our driver was courteous and navigated us through the busy streets safely and quickly. The guide on the other hand was a disaster! At first we were happy to see that she was a young lady, so we thought that she would be enthusiastic and energetic. Alas she turned out to be inattentive, disinterested and down right boring! Things got worse when for some reason she got into a heated argument with someone during our tour. From then on we just felt that asking for anything would be like treading on thin ice as she was obviously extremely angry! Near the end of our tour she seemed to calm down a little but by then of course it was too late and our day was completely ruined.
So recapping we paid a considerable amount of money, the tour wasn’t cheap, so as to treat ourselves to what we thought would be a special day only to have by far the worst tour during our cruise.
What a disappointment!
