Stelios met my friend and I at the port of Piraeus. He was personable, knowledgeable and knew his way around the city of Athens like the back of his hand. He made sure he was taking us to the places we wanted to see and he made the tour interesting and fun - taking photos of us at the various sights and explaining where we would find him on our return from each location. I would very much recommend the tour. We got to see so many interesting sights and wouldn't have seen half of that if we had taken a tour organised by the cruise ship.

My wife and I booked a private tour to see Athens. Dimitrius was fantastic. As soon as we disembarked the cruise ship, Dimitrius was waiting for us. The car he had for us was clean (it did not smell like cigarettes) and had ample air conditioning. We enjoyed the fact that prior to entering the sites, Dimitrius showed us what the buildings originally looked like. Dimitrius was extremely informative, professional and knowledgeable. We could not have asked for a better experience!

We had an excellent experience using Manos right from the very beginning. Booking the trip was easy as Manos was very prompt in our email correspondence. Although Manos himself was busy the day we arrived in Athens he sent his colleague Apostolous who was very knowledgeable and courteous. Apostolous treated us like a guest not like a business. Although we had booked a 5-6 hour trip for a fixed price we actually took a little bit longer as there was so much to see but Apostolous never rushed us and in fact on our way back to the cruise terminal showed us a few more sights that were not on the original plan. The car (Mercedes E class) was very clean and well maintained and to top it all the trip cost us less than going on the cruise company bus trip. Highly recommended.

The driver Dimitris was waiting for us at the exit of the cruise terminal. The Mercedes was clean, cool and comfortable. Dimitris is a nice guy and will try to make your trip as perfect as possible.
He explained many things on the way and knows his way around Athens very good.
We got a private tour around Athens as you would never get when booking with the cruise company.

Thanks again Dimitris!

My mother, sister and I were in Athens before embarking on the Azamara Journey cruise ship. Manos picked us up at the airport and took us to our hotel. He was very patient given that there were fight delays and hours of waiting at the airport. We spent a full day touring Delphi and surrounding areas. We spent another day touring Corinth and Nemea. We had great wine and food and he is incredibly knowledgeable and informative. Dimitri took us on a half day tour of Athens which included the Acropolis, Parthenon, and highlights of the city before taking us to the cruise port in Piraeus.

We felt comfortable and safe with them and could not have asked for better guides and service. We highly recommend Manos and his company for customizable tours of Athens and surrounding areas. He even fixed broken eyeglasses for us!
