Wow, we were treated so well on our 2 day trips out (Delphi, then touring the Peloponnesian sights). The warm friendly manner right from our airport transfer made us feel safe and special and it became clear that this company really really cared about our experience. We were visiting with the aim of seeing a few of the headline Ancient Greek sights but we got so much more. As we sat in comfort in a lovely Mercedes sedan our friendly driver told us tales of old and took us to those extra secret places which the guide books don’t tell you about. Our son (12) loved the trip and has not stopped talking about it. Greece was a friendly place when last visited 30 years ago and Dimitris and Eleni at Deep Blue Tours have re-affirmed that it still is, but now as tourist with family I can see that not only do they care about showing Greece at its best, but they also care 110% about the service and experience their guests have. We can’t wait to go back and have our holiday memories enhanced by Deep Blue.

We had an awesome driver and we saw all of the most important parts of Athens. Including a wonderful lunch at a small typical Greek restaurant....drivers pick. It is HOT in July so we asked to be picked up at 7:30 to get started on the day early. Loved it and it is truly a great way for 4 of us to see the city with an expert.

Jimmy was waiting for us as we came out of the cruise terminal. He was an excellent driver and guide. We enjoyed his narrative as we proceeded down the coast. Upon arrival he dropped us off right at the entrance and was there to pick us up after we had explored Poseidon's Temple. On our way back he took us to a nice restaurant located right on the water with beautiful views. He also made a stop at a shop we had seen on the way and took us to a baklava shop to buy goodies. This was a great tour and the price is right. We really enjoyed the day and highly recommend their services.

I couldn’t imagine a better formula to go to the meteora. Everything was beyond what we expected. Akis, our driver, was waiting for us at the ferry. He drove us comfortably to Delphi and then to the Meteora; he is an excellent driver, very sympathetic but so discreet, not interfering in our privacy. The guides, the restaurants, the hotel he selected were excellent in all respects. In those conditions, it would have been a big mistake to miss out on such a magnificent part of Greece. A real treat.

Aki, our tour guide and driver was extraordinary! My family was guided through the Peloponnese by a knowledgeable, educated, English-speaking guide. We couldn't have asked for better. The Mercedes van was sparkling clean, comfortable, new, and was waiting for us at our hotel. I highly recommend this guide and this tour which visited Epidaurus, Ancient Corinth, the Corinth Canal, Nafplio, and Mycenae. Thank you for a wonderful time, Aki!

Akis was recommended to me by a friend in Australia so I contacted him regarding a half day private Athens tour for my family. Having grown up in Australia and moving to Athens in his 20’s, Akis English was perfect and his passion and knowledge of Greece was exceptional. We would not have had the same experience had we not used him. I would highly recommend a tour with Deep Blue Tours to anyone visiting Athens. They will create a tour to suit your interest and time frame. Absolutely brilliant.

We had booked with deep blue tours from India and thank god there was not a moment we regretted our decision!!
Mr Aki in charge of the luxurious merc van was thorough in his knowledge about local sites..cuisine..and of course history..saved us on hiring a guide !
Would definitely recommend this company to all those planning to visit Greece . We had take an overnight trip to Delphi and meteora .
The stay in Kalambakas ....Hotel Arridanos was very comfortable..like a home away from home . Lastly my sincere thanks to Eleni for her prompt replies and advice.

Traveling with my two young-adult daughters trying to squeeze-in a quick tour of Athens from our cruise ship. Our time there was even more abbreviated because we celebrated a wedding vow renewal with family on-board the morning we arrived, so we only had 4 hours to even catch a glimpse of this wonderful city. Thank goodness for Deep Blue Tours. The communication prior to our arrival was flawless and extremely helpful, with Eleni asking about our interests and making great suggestions about how best to maximize our all-too-short stay. Our driver was on-time, extremely knowledgeable and was a native English speaker. Our car was immaculate, comfortable & well-stocked with water. I recommend this company highly and hope to use them again when I return. (4 hours is not even close to enough time!)

We were in Athens for a single day as part of a cruise and wanted to make the most of our time, so we took a private taxi tour of the city with Deep Blue Tours. The tour was excellent. We were able to see all the major sites in the city without feeling too rushed.

Dimitri was our driver, and he had an interesting Australian accent. He was very friendly and talkative through the day. He was waiting for us at the port when our ship arrived and drove us all around the busy streets of Athens efficiently without getting bogged down in traffic. He customized the itinerary for our preferences and even made additional stops when asked.

We were provided with detailed historic information about each of the sites we visited. Dimitri was so good at this, we felt fine without hiring separate tour guides for the Acropolis or other historic sites. He made an excellent restaurant recommendation for lunch and helped us make the most of our time in Athens.

There are some optional stops, like the Olympic Stadium. It's only 5 Euro per person, and we really enjoyed it. The place was fairly empty, so we got to take some nice pictures, and the Olympic torch museum was nice.

The price of the tour was very reasonable especially considering the quality and length. The tour operator does accept pre-payment via PayPal, which I appreciated as it allowed me to avoid carrying lots of cash.

There are some out of pocket expenses on the tour. For each person we purchased a city pass (30 Euro), Acropolis entry (5 euro) and Olympic Stadium entry (5 euro). Of course, we also paid for lunch and snacks. Overall, though, this was still one of the cheapest tours we did.

Apparently Athens has regulations that require tour operators to use yellow taxis, so the tour will be in a yellow taxi. It was a Mercedes, though, so it was nicer than your typical taxi.

There was only one downside: The taxi smelled fairly heavily of smoke. I suppose that's just how things are in Europe. It would be nice to be able to go out in public and not breathe smoke, but sometimes you cannot avoid it.

I strongly recommend Deep Blue Tours for anyone interested in exploring Athens. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and were able to see and do much more than we could on our own.
