“Wonderful Athens Guide”

Athens Taxi Tours - Michael Sterianos
Ranked #8 of 169 Transportation in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 7, 2013

I cannot recommend Michael any more than to say he is the best. When he arrived he was there waiting for us and away we went. His knowledge and kindness were exceptional. He arranged the tour to suit our specific needs and was extremely informative. If you are looking for a guide around the Athens, Greece area I cannot imagine there being a better one.

Our family is pleased to highly recommend Michael Sterianos. There were four in our party -- including 79 and 81 year old gentlemen. Michael met us very promptly at the exit to our ship, and immediately took us and our luggage to the hotel so we could check in and store our luggage. We then quickly went straight to the Acropolis so we could get started before the crowds. We found Michael to be extremely well informed with the history, as well as having great hints for where to go first, what type of tickets to buy, etc. Throughout our time together, we never felt rushed in any way. He saw that we were able to eat lunch in a timely manner (which was important to us and our health), and he carefully watched over us. The second day, we rode to Corinth, Mycenae, and Nafplio -- and were again able to visit so many great things under Michael's care.
We thank him for the big part he had in making it such a special and memorable trip for us.

My husband and I had our first visit to Greece earlier this month, but only five days. We decided to not attempt to find our way around a new city on our own, but rather tap into the knowledge and experience of locals by using taxi-guides. It was a great choice. Michael met us at the airport, and by the time we arrived at our hotel, we felt very comfortable with him and with our plans for the next day. Michael gave us an overview of Athens the next morning, choosing more wisely than we would have on our own, to start our day earlier rather than later. After giving us some historic perspective on the Acroplis, he set us on our way up to the Parthenon. We arrived before the great crowds, and the temperature was comfortable, not as hot as they would have been had we departed later in the morning. Then we moved on to Athens, the city. Michael chose highlights to show us, and to give us an idea of things to do on our own the next day, and also how to get around on the fabulous metro system. The afternoon took us to old Corinth, a lovely little town with many sites still under study and reconstruction, followed by a delicious, generous lunch at a favorite restaurant of Michael's. He would always point out places of interest or stop along the way for interesting things.

After two days on our own, Stratos met us at our hotel for a half day drive along the coast, a stop at the Temple of Poseidon, lunch at a seaside restaurant, and then to drop us at the airport.

Both Michael and Stratos were congenial, knowledgeable, fluent in English, and delightful companions. No question that we will contact them next time we plan a trip to Greece, which we would be delighted to re-visit!

Michael collected us as arranged from Athens airport, with a transfer to our hotel in Athens for one night.

He then took us, the next day, from Athens to Delphi. He even provided a DVD of Greece to watch in the car. It was lovely talking to him and his colleague, Stratos, (on the return journey), about Greek life, politics etc etc.

Very clean car, excellent service. We would definitely use Michael again!
