Tour of Athens

Our driver was 45 minutes late and did not speak English. He then proceeded to drive us for over an hour and we could not get him to tell us what the plan of the day was or where we were headed. We finally had to call the tour group to get information. The guide we picked up upon arriving in Athens, spoke great English, but spoke way too long on everything, even when we asked her for "less information" and to move faster because we were limited on time. We had no comentary on Cape Sounion or Temple o Poseidon because the driver did not speak English as we paid for!

Dear mstelter, Due to your unusually larger group size we had used a coach company for your tour in good faith but who obviously provided a very poor service for which we sincerely apologize. We have taken this extremely seriously and as consequence, have now added a luxury Mercedes Sprinter with a large capacity to our fleet allowing us when necessary to host larger group numbers to our own standards. Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention.

Our driver and tour guide was EXCELLENT! .. Couldn't have been more accommodating and informative … would recommend him to anyone ...felt like we left a family friend behind when the tour was over !

Dear Ron, thank you so much for taking the time to review our tour. As you impart, a private tour can also be a very personal experience. Of course we operate as a business, however the pleasure and pride we all have in carrying out our tours is also that of hosts welcoming guests here as they would do in welcoming any friends to visit. So often we have met may customers who are now friends & who we also keep in contact with. You would certainly be warmply welcomed if & when you ever return here!

Spectacular day in Athens Greece

Demetrius is an excellent guide. By the end of our tour, we felt we spent the day with a friend. Prior to visiting each site he gave an in-depth detail, which enhanced our experience. We had early access to sites before long waiting lines. For lunch, Demetrius suggested a wonderful seafood restaurant with spectacular waterfront views. Thank you Demetrius for giving us memorable moments to take home.

I had great experience on this tour, it was personalized. Our tour guide and driver Demetrius was very professional, friendly. Part of the package was a lunch in Strofi Restaurant, the food was so delicious, we had 4 appetizers (unbelievably delicious and so many), Adonis our waiter was superb. The restaurant accommodated us to serve our food early (I did not know that lunch in Greece is between 1:00 to 2:30), they serve our food at 12:15. If you are staying only a few days in Athens, take this tour because you'll to get to see almost all what Athens had to offer!!!!!!!! Just for your information, November is a great time to visit Athens, not hot and not too cold, we had a perfect weather during my tour.

I booked this tour because the tours offered by Celebrity didn’t offer the flexibility that a private tour would. We wanted to get the most out of our day in Athens and this tour seemed like it would give us that opportunity. Unfortunately, we found out two nights before we arrived in Athens that my wife (who was traveling on a Schengen Visa) had to be back on the ship at 13:30 for her face-to-face interview. We were disappointed that we were losing a couple hours of our tour time, but when we notified Warm Penguin, they were very accommodating. Dimitri was nothing short of brilliant...amazing from start to finish. We got off the ship at 7:00 am, which was 30 minutes before we were scheduled to meet. When we walked out of the cruise terminal he was already there waiting for us. We got a great jump on the day! The entire time we were driving he would share information about Greece’s history and each of the sites we visited. His information was spot on. We stopped at the Olympic Stadium (something I wanted and no cruise tour offered) and then made it to the “Tomb of the Unknown Soldier” at the perfect time to see the ceremony they do every hour on the hour. We then went to the Parthenon well ahead of the cruise tours, which allowed us to take some amazing pictures without hundreds/thousands of people in the background. When we finished up we sent him a text that we were on our way down and he met us shortly after we got to the bottom. After finishing up there he took us to the museum that houses the artifacts from the Parthenon that are still in Greece’s possession. I’m not a stop and stare person when it comes to museums, so we weren’t there as long as he anticipated 🤣, but as with everything during the day, he was amazing at adapting to our schedule and helping us to get the most out of it. We had enough time to visit the Temple of Zeus, do a little shopping, and then have an amazing Greek inspired lunch at “God’s Restaurant”. He got us back to the ship right on time. Other than when we went to the Olympic Stadium, Dimitri would drop us off, give us instructions, and let us explore the sites at our own pace. We were responsible for all entrance fees, but he let us know in advance what they would be. That was the PERFECT way for us to see the city. Although we were sad that the Greek port authorities wouldn’t accommodate us so we could have the full day tour we booked, Dimitri was incredible in belong us to maximize the time we had available!
