“Wonderful Day in Athens”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We were a small group of 2 couples, and we truly enjoyed Manos' wit and experience as we toured Athens. He took us everywhere we wanted, and we also had some free time to shop and have a great lunch at a restaurant he highly recommended. Kudos to Manos for making our day so enjoyable.

“Best cruise excursion ever!!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The booking process of this trip (we were on a Celebrity Equinox cruise) through e-mail with Manos was very easy. Manos was very responsive and proposed a nice itineray with still some place to add "personal adjustments".
Info given before the trip was very good and clear so we had no problem to find our driver/guide Apostolis. He greeted us in a nice and professional way, and after discussing what we would like to see in the tour, he handed us over some fresh water bottles and of we went... .
We have been travelling a lot and got tours all over the world but Apostolis must have been our best guide we ever had!
He helped us in any way to see as much as possible being only one day in Athens... .
We started with the ship museum with the replica of the Thryreme (we asked him to add this to the program) and than went of for the Akropolis. He explained us very well where to get the tickets and told us to take our time, so we were never in any kind of rush.
Each stop he guided us to the entrance and told us where he would be to meet him after the visits. We had never any problems to find him and get back in our nice Mercedes E-class.

We saw the main highlights of Athene:
Akropolis
temple of Zeus,
Plaka
Olympic stadium
we went to the top of a mountain to have a splendid view over the city.

Each time we got a lot of information about what we were going to see. He is also flexible in which order we were going to see the sights of Athens so we never had to wait to long (e.g. for the changing of the guards).
At noon we were given some options for lunch, we choose the locally family run restaurant and we got very nice food for a low price (15 euros, drinks included for two).

It's difficult to express in writing why we felt that this trip to Athens made to be THE highlight of our 13 days Mediterranean cruise but lot's had to do with this company and our driver Apostolis who was so professional, helpful and knowledgeable!
We wished we had tour guides like him in every place we visited!

“Athens Private tour”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We were a party of eight senior citizens embarking on a Mediterranean cruise, I contacted Athens private tour to arrange for a private tour of Athens during our stop in Piraeus. I was very impressed by the speed of responses from Manos Taliadouros .As this is my first experience in engaging the service through the internet, many questions were asked and responded within the same day in spite of the fact that we were on a different time zone ( Asia vs Europe).. Manos was unfailingly patient in answering many of my questions .He was also very clear in proving the instruction on how and where we were to be met on arrival in Piraeus .
On arrival in Piraeus, we were met by our tour guide Vasillis. He is a pleasant courteous young man. We were given a very informative tour of Athens .He was very patient in answering many of our questions and make sure we covered all the well known sites in Athens.. As we wanted to try typical Greek food during lunch ,he made sure we get to try out the typical Greek cuisine. We enjoyed our tour of Acropolis which was awe inspiring .
We enjoyed our tour of Athens thanks to Manos and Vasillis and have no hesitation in recommending their service to any one who want to visit Athens.

“Best choice for flexible itinerary in Athens”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We love to travel with flexible schedule, and this is our truly best option. The driver's service mind is amazingly impressive. The minibus is clean and elegant. We had only one day in Athens as we traveled with Princess cruise, so we decided to spend one day visiting Hadrian's gate, Acropolis, Acropolis museum and Plaka. After we told the driver, he was knowledgable enough to know that if we go straight to Acropolis, there would be long queue for purchasing tickets. So he suggested that we go to Hadrian's gate first and get the tickets there. After that we went to Acropolis, he did extra mile by sending us right in front of the gate! (where the coach will definitely not drop us that close). And after hot and tiring visit to Acropolis, he offers us chilled, refreshing soft drink and water. Conclusion is .... we highly recommend this tour!!

“Very highly Recommended”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

our cruise itinerary allowed our party of four just one day to see Athens. We selected Manos based upon the recommendations here and we were very glad we did. Manos's colleague Stelios was our driver/guide for the day and he was punctual, courteous, solicitous, knowledgeable and an all round nice guy to spend a nice day in Athens with. He also recommended a great restaurant for lunch - away from the main tourist area, great food at reasonable prices. BTW, he speaks great English, having previously lived in the US. Stelios ensured we maximized our limited time and we were a happy bunch when we returned to the ship. Do not hesitate to use these guys.
