“Awesome Tour to See Everything in One Day”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We came into Athens by cruise ship and had only one day in port, so we were SO thankful to have a tour through this company. Our guide Alex whisked us around the city to get in all the major sites in a confined amount of time, but we never felt too rushed. Alex was super talkative and told us everything we needed to know about the city. He couldn't accompany us into the ticketed attractions, but he explained them very well before and after, even using printed out pictures and books to give visuals. It was a really high quality tour and we couldn't have asked for better!

“Excellent day”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We had a terrific experience with this company. I did a lot of research on driver/guides in Athens who spoke English well and could give us a comprehensive tour for our one day cruise spot in that city.

We contacted Nikos for information and he was a delight to work with. All of our inquiries were answered fully, promptly and cheerfully. His prices were among the most reasonable we found in our research, but the service was first rate. He even accommodated our request to assign one of the drivers for whom we had seen great reviews on this site.

That driver, Alex, was outstanding. He was extremely committed to making our day memorable. While he had a suggested itinerary, he was very flexible in willing to vary it to satisfy our personal interests. He got us to the Acropolis early so that we could beat the crowds and drove us to all the tourist sites we had requested. He made communications very easy when he dropped us off, and eliminated any anxiety, by providing us a local cell phone so that we could call him when we were ready to be picked up at a site, so that we were not locked in to a set schedule.

Alex is very knowledgeable about Athens and very passionate about the city and Greece. He was informative on their culture, politics, history and geography. His knowledge and passion about the city were evident throughout the trip.

I highly recommend this company and encourage you to ask for Alex among any special requests you may make.

“Family trip to Greece (just continental)”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I travel to Greece with my wife and my 2 kids (9 and 7 YO)

I booked 3 different tours with Private Greece Tours, the Argolis extended (Peloponnese-Corinth canal, Corinth old city, Mycenaean city fortress, Tomb of Agamemnon, and Naupflion), Athens (without museums, Acropolis, Stadium, Guard change, Temple of Zeus, and Cape Sunio) and the last was Delphi extended (Monastery of Ossios Loukas, Delphi city and Museum, Thermopylae).

Spyros (our driver) was second to none, he was always on time, he explain in detail all the places/things that we were going to see, and he took us for lunch to good places.

If I came back again to Greece I will contact Private Greece tours again, it is a good way of making the most out of your time; Spyros advice us where to go and what we must see and do.

Thank you Spyros and PGT !!!

“Best choice for a Athens port shore - excursion!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We booked our tour as a shore-excursion for our Mediterranean cruise in April. Due to the cruise line cancelling the cruise we had to cancel our excursion with Private Greece Tours as well. It was done without incident, which made us reschedule with them as soon as we were able to book a different cruise.

Our of our 12 day cruise, our time in Greece was one of the best tours overall, mostly in part to our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and flexible. Not only did he take us where we wanted to go, stopped when we wanted to take a closer look at something we drove by, but also showed us interesting things that we didn't know about. He also knew the country history, economic and political which was great for us.

If we ever make it back, we will definitely book with Nikos again. But for now, we'll just have to continue to recommend him to our friends!

“Perfect Day in Athens!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Private Greece Tours was wonderful. All the details were handled by email prior to our trip. Our tour guide Angelo was waiting for us at our port of call. He made our day so special! He expertly handled the traffic everywhere. He took us to all the popular destinations & quickly arrived when we were ready to head to the next one. We pumped him for information about Greek history & the modern day average life in Athens & he shared so much with us. The restaurant & shopping he recommended were great & the baklava at a local bakery was indescribable. We was well informed, spoke great English & so personable. We enjoyed every minute of our tour & would highly recommend Private Greece Tours. It is obvious Nikos cares about his clients & deserves all the rave reviews.
