Based on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews we booked a shore excursion to Corinth. We were met by Stratos at the port. He provided background information on the construction of the Corinth Canal, including a short video. He knew that the reason we had chosen this excursion was to follow in the footsteps of St. Paul. While we were traveling to Corinth he shared an informational video tracing the ministry of St. Paul in Greece. Once we arrived at the old Corinth site he gave us plenty of time to explore on our own and at the conclusion suggested we also visit a small church near the site. He included a visit to the ancient acropolis, and to the site where St. Paul actually landed in Athens. He offered to also take us to Mars Hill in Athens, although we had already visited this site.

We found Stratos to be congenial and well-informed and at the conclusion of our tour felt like we had made a new friend! We highly recommend for those wishing a personalized and unhurried visit to the area, and we highly recommend Stratos!

We were on a cruise, visiting Athens for the day. Vassilios met my wife and I at the port as previously arranged via email. On the ride from the port to the Acropolis, Vassilios showed us a short film and provided a guide book. These two items, together with our guides love of the land, provided an awesome overview of the sites we were about to see. After the Acropolis, we chose to visit the Acropolis Museum were we found more interesting artifacts from this wonderful treasure. We stopped at some other sites along the way with Vassilios providing more than enough background information to make the sites meaningful. After a short stop for the changing of the guard at the presidential palabce we went to the Plaka for some stolling, shopping and lunch. Vassilios was extremely knowledgable, passionate, friendly and professional. He even kept tabs via his cell phone/driver network of possible street closures due to demonstrations to make sure we would not get delayed. Luckily, we were not affected in any way.

In summary, we saw everything we wanted to see and we had a fantastic day in Athens thanks to Vassilios. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

4 of us pre-booked a half-day tour (6 1/2 hrs) as our port excursion. Our guide was Theo and he took us wherever we wanted to go. He was able to avoid "demonstration" traffic by taking an alternate route to the Acropolis. We have some walking/climbing restrictions, so Theo drove us (at our request) to areas with excellent views of the city and then to the seaside for a wonderful lunch. We enjoyed the personalization of the tour and the history Theo made come alive. This was perfectly tailored for our needs and a refreshing change from our ship excursions elsewhere, which were with large groups that were difficult for us to keep up with and sometimes even hear our guides. We highly recommend this company!

Theo picked us up from our hotel for a 6 1/2 hour extend half day tour in his taxi. He was prompt, well-dressed, very informed and he had a very pleasant personality. He was very knowledgeable and made the day as easy for us as he could. I highly recommend this company.
Thank you Theo for such a great day!
