We were a party of 4 adults who were cruising the Greek Islands on board a Princess ship. Not wanting to join the hoards on a bus tour I found Nikos' company through Tripadvisor and was very pleased that I did! Nikos was very prompt with his replies to all my e-mails and very clear on the exact price we would have to pay and his instructions for us on how to meet his driver were very clear even though there is always a complication in Athens as to where the ship is going to dock on the day!
Spyros was our driver for the day and he was easy to find amongst the crowd which is always a relief. We left promptly for The Acropolis and he explained the history of it and what we would expect to see . He spoke English very well and he was very clear with instructions of where to meet after we were finished.The whole day was extremely well organised and well timed and we were never made to feel like he was rushing us. We did the whole day tour and enjoyed a great lunch in a cafe near the market . We also saw the changing of the guard near the Parliament building---that was fascinating and there were not many other tourists there. We followed Spyros' suggestions but at any time we could have changed the itinerary---the advantages of NOT being on a ship's organised bus tour! Spyros was very professional in his approach but at the same time a lot of fun---we really enjoyed his company.
We finished off at the new Acropolis Museum which was so interesting---and very cool, as by mid afternoon Athens was very hot! Spyros was well aware of the time we had to return to the ship and the timing was perfect---we made the most of our day in Athens. I would certainly recommend this company to anyone, especially if you only have one day in Athens.
