After checking trip advisor and cruise critics reviews I contacted Spiros regarding a private shore excursion. Our party of four wanted to see as much of Athens as possible. From my first contact Spiros was great to deal with. He even directed me to the tour guides we used in Izmir (Ephesus) and Istanbul.

We saw everything - the Acropolis, Mars Hill, Acropolis Museum, Ancient Agora, Anafiotika, Panathenaic Stadium (Olympic Theater), changing of the guards, temple of Zeus, shopping in the Plaka, and so much more! He took us to see everything we wanted to see and things we didn't even know we wanted to see. He even helped us arrive before the crowds. There is nothing like the Acropolis without tourists - except us.

Lunch was great. We didn't know what to order so the restaurant owner served us family style - plate after plate, after plate! Wonderful Greek food.

This was our second visit to Athens but it was a whole new experience. Seeing Athens through his eyes was the highlight. He answered all our questions - and we had way to many.

Spiro is a great guide. Loved his New York accent!

My husband and I recently traveled to Greece and spent 3 days touring Athens, Delphi, and Meteora with Spiros. We had fantastic service. It was so easy to set up travel through this service. Spiro's responded promptly to all our questions and was punctual with all our travel arrangements. We saw all the major sites in Athen's in one day with the exception of the National Archeological Museum. This museum takes a day in and off itself. However, we were not rushed. Spiro's just knew where we needed to go and when we should arrive. He was very flexible if we needed a longer or shorter visit. He also was able to recommend some great inexpensive restaurants. Our second trip was an overnight to Delphi and Meteora. Again, a great trip. We stayed in an outstanding hotel. We visited 5 of the 6 monasteries in Meteora and had some great photo taking opportunities. Again, great food.

The entire experience was excellent. Billy (our driver) treated us like part of his family. He was full of interesting facts and historical stories and was passionate about Greece. We wanted to leave earlier than usual in the morning which wasn't a problem. The whole trip was so easy and we got so much from it thanks to the excellent service we received. Billy even had a guide book on Delphi that he lent us when we were visiting the site.

Spiros was very quick at responding to our emails and his communication was very friendly.

Highly recommend this company and Billy in particular.

We spent two days with Spiros, both great! Because he has lived for a time in the US, his English is great and his knowledge of Greece is too! Although he didn't/couldn't accompany us into the attractions, he explained what we would see, what not to miss, and often handed us a book to take with us to help us understand just what we were seeing. Sprios made our first visit to Athens memorable!
