We just returned from a Mediterranean cruise. Prior to the trip, we booked 2 adults and one youth with Spiros for Athens. Spiros responded promptly and made the arrangements so easy -- to include picking up Acropolis tickets in advance so we wouldn't have to worry about lines. Everything was arranged by email and here was no need to prepay. We were met promptly at the port by Christos who took us on our 8-hour tour of the city. Christos was a wealth of information and we really enjoyed the tour.
Christos realized I take a lot of photos so he pointed out some of the best photo spots for me, patiently waiting as I trekked a distance to some of the places. We spent an enormous 2 1/2 hours at the Acropolis site while Christos waited with the car. Even over that long period, I never felt he was irritated or trying to rush us. Prior to returning us to the port, he showed us a fabulous local restaurant with the best feta and tzatziki sauce I've ever had. Not only did he show us the restaurant, he told us before we got out of the car since the place served enormous portions and he stopped us from likely overspending.
As a really nice touch, Christos gave us a cell phone with his number programmed so we could call him if we lost our way or needed any help when we were apart -- that small touch added a great degree of comfort.
After we left the Acropolis, he picked up some ice-cold bottles of water for us and gave my daughter a very nice Athens tourism book with lots of great photos. As the day wore on and we were getting tired, he allowed us to change the itinerary, at our request, and took us on a nice drive through the coastal region prior to returning us to the ship exactly as requested.
I would recommend to anyone to use this service, and if possible, request Christos. I know we will be using Spiros Taxi the next time we need a tour around Greece.
