Really enjoyed the entire day with Tas. He was a great guide who was prepared, early and gave us great advice to make the most of our time in Athens. Would recommend this tour for a couple or small group for sure!

An Outstanding Tour and Guide
William_C

We went on a 7 day cruise of the Greek Islands doing shore excursions each day with a guide. At the end of our cruise we stayed a couple of days in Athens and signed up for this private tour. It was the highlight of our entire trip. Our guide, Petros, was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, personable, patient and a joy to spend the day with. There was traffic due to streets being closed for a marathon in the morning so he took extra time with us so that we could see everything that day. He even changed the order of our schedule when places were closed in the morning for the marathon and made sure we saw them later in the day. We highly recommend this tour and be sure to request Petros!

Amazing experience, the perfect driver!

Tas, our driver, what a great guy! He made the experience. Felt like being driven around by a great friend. Loved roaming around Athens. Highly recommend this private tour. Relaxing, you set your own pace, amazing local tips and lunch at a top notch spot (we went back later that week bc the food was that great). Tip: Start exactly at 8 AM bc the Acropolis gets crowded (we delayed by 30 minutes due to us not being ready, but still really great). Ask for prepaid tickets (we forgot to do that, though our driver was able to arrange it at the last minute). Also, if you want a licenced tour guide to go with you into the sites all day, you need to ask and pay for that separately as the driver cannot do that (he will hook your up with easy access entrance though). We didn't pay for an all day guide (we forgot), but it was still great, and we found a guide for hire at the top of the Acropolis who showed us around up there for an hour and a half, which was worth it. The tour driver more than made up for the rest. Thanks Tas!

Transportation around Athens only
Theresa_P

This was not a tour. It was a driver who dropped us off and picked us up from the main sites in Athens. We went by ourselves to all of the places we visited. We had to buy all of the entrance tickets separately. There was no “tour”. We could have taken taxis to do the same thing. The driver was very nice, but it was not what we were expecting.

Unforgettable and A must while in Athens

The whole tour was unforgettable. When you visit the breathtaking sights like The Acropolis, the pantheons, the ancient stadium and it is backed up with detailed history by your guide Petros in our case, it is so moving, you travel back in thousands of years of history

Would Go A Second Time, And A Third
James

What an incredible experience. We had 24 hours to see Athens, and this tour delivered. Tas made the entire trip worth it. We were greeted right on time at our hotel, and from there we were off. I have told friends who have been to Athens how many historic sites/places we visited, and they are extremely impressed. If you are looking to get a well-rounded experience, look no further. Our driver Tas was extremely professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and a safe driver. He gave us great background information and even gave us some tips for our continued journey. It really makes a difference having such a personable guide, and Tas is that person. You're in luck if you have him as your guide! Would absolutely do this experience again.

Just Right!
Patricia_J
, Sep 2021
Ok if you don’t do this tour it’s your loss! I loved the fact that someone drives you to many of the historical attractions then allows you time to explore on your own. We did the semi private half day tour and it was just right. However, there is an all day with a few more goodies to see and do. We had a wonderful driver who, though not a tour guide, gave lots of details on each stop of what we were about to see. The ride was comfortable and the half day for us was just right!

Great tour to see all of Athens
Mary_F
, Sep 2021
Taz was fantastic! He took us all around the city and showed us the don’t miss sights. He was so knowledgeable and gave great information about the sights we were seeing as well as information about the Greek culture. He even went out of his way to take us to a stop we wanted to see that wasn’t on the itinerary. We really enjoyed a stop by stop AC car as a way to see Athens (and not having to worry about finding a taxi or walking). We were so happy to have booked this tour with Taz!
