“The best way to spend a day in Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Instead of taking a tour with the cruise ship we decided to have a private tour. Our driver, John, was delightful and very informative. He took us to all the sights. We got to stay as long as we wanted, and we saw more because the taxi could go to more places than a bus could. It was so nice not to have to hurry round with a group, and a lot more comfortable than climbing on and off a bus. It was very reasonably priced so I think it cost us less than a regular tour and was so much better.

“Athens half day taxi tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

Great tour by taxi-air conditioned mercedes-John, our driver was very knowledgeable and helpful. We saw the most important sites, shopped for pastries, had a great greek lunch in a unique out of the way family restaurant, treated like royalty. He offered us the famous, older attractions and ruins, let us choose. Pick-up at cruise terminal and drop-off was easy. Strongly recommend a taxi tour by John.

“Comprehensive and Informative Athens Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

We were very pleased with our tour of historic sites in Athens. Anthony responded promptly to all our emails and arranged a 6-hour taxi tour taking us to the Acropolis, the Changing of the Guard, the Agora, the New Acropolis Museum, etc. John, our driver/guide, picked us up promptly at our hotels, and provided comprehensive explanation about all the sites. We can highly recommend Athens Tour Greece for such private tours of historic Athens.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Our tour guide Yannie was waiting for us at the cruise terminal. He was excellent. We watched a dvd about Greece on the way to Corinth Canal. Yannie answered any questions we asked and told us alot of information about everying. Yannie first took us to the bridge across the canal and we had short photo stop and we could purchase drinks and food. We then went too Ancient Corinth Yannie told us what time to met him at the exit. The entrance fee was 6 euros. We then went to a fort high up in the mountains and the views were fantastic. We also saw the bridge that was lowered into the water across the Corinth Canal.

The tour was about 41/2 hours long and was worh the money.

Yannie was a fantastic driver and guide and we could not have asked for a better excursion.
We would definitely use Athens Tour Greece again.

“Could have been a better experience.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

We did the half day Christian tour of Athens as a shore excursion. Our driver was prompt and courteous, and the transportation was fine, but there was very little information given by the guide, especially with regards to the aspect of the life of Saint Paul. I realize that these are "driver guides," but I still expected more than about 4 sentences about Paul in Athens as this was billed as a Christian tour. The guide mostly talked about the 2004 Olympics. Many of the sites listed on the tour description were pointed out as an afterthought while we were in traffic. If you want nice transportation for a group to the Parthenon and the Forum, this is fine, but I wouldn't expect to learn much.
