Following good reviews on Tripadvisor for Manos and his Athens tours, I booked a short half day tour for myself, my wife and my elderly mother. From the first email, the service was excellent. We adjusted the time of the tour and confirmed by email. We were met in Piraeus off our cruise ship by Vasillis, our most courteous, knowledgable, gracious driver - it was like having your own personal, private chauffeur who knew where to go to make the most of the time, see the most impressive and important sights and cater for the mobility issues of mother. He gave us an excellent commentary as we drove, not just pointing out things to see but giving us deep knowledge and background. He showed us the view of Athens from a high point that no coach tour would have managed, as well as the Acropolis, Panathenaic Stadium, changing of the guard, Temple of Zeus and a fabulous shop selling genuine Greek sweets, wines and oils. It worked out cheaper than the ship's excursion and was 10 times better. Excellent, excellent service. We have now decided to do the same on any further cruise - book taxi tours ahead. We just hope a service as good as Manos' can be found in other ports and destinations.
