A private tour is the way to go!
, Aug 2021
Our tour guide Peggy was very knowledgeable which allowed us to make the most of our brief stop in Athens. We saw the important sites and learned a lot about ancient Greece. Our driver Christos got us everywhere we needed to be safely and efficiently. We highly recommend this tour.
A Beautiful Day
, Aug 2021
Our driver Chris and tour guide Peggy picked us up at our hotel promptly for our tour of Athens. My husband I I were travelling with our two granddaughters, 14 and 16. Our first stop was the Acropolis and Peggy was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. She and Chris made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. We were able to structure our tour to our liking so part of our time we spent at a lovely restaurant by the sea. All in all we felt like we experienced a lot of Athens in the time we had. I highly recommend this tour.

Good tour

Would recommend this tour. Our Guide and driver were very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Transport was of excellent quality clean spacious and air conditioned. We had three teenagers and my only suggestion is that the guide try to engage a little more with children and try to spark interest ( not easy I know especially with teenagers,)

1/2 Day Skip The Line Acropolis and Athens tour
, Jul 2021
Not sure I’d call this a tailor made tour as I noticed on their sample itinerary that we would not be entering the 1st Olympic stadium so had emailed tour to see if we paid our own admission if we could go in. Tour briefly stopped, but did not have time for entrance as tour guide had spent too much time at Acropolis/Parthenon and we needed to rush from Olympic stadium to see Changing of Guards. Good, but not great tour. Bought it for the skip-the-line at Acropolis, but on date/time we visited really not necessary as crowds were nonexistent.
Excellent customer service

Great Tour
, Oct 2019
Great way to see the highlights of Athens. Courteous and friendly driver, very knowledgeable guide. We visited the Acropolis first and learned much more than we ever would have if we had done this on our own. Our guide knew how to avoid crowds & congestion and where the best photographs would be. The detail our guide had was amazing and it made our visit to the Acropolis Museum much more meaningful. The rest of the city tour was very informative. Do some research ahead of time so you can discuss with the guide your "must see" items so you get to see as many of them as you can in a half day. Highly recommended!
Half Day Private Tour in Athens
, Sep 2019
Had a great time. We were picked up at our hotel which was not on a main road. We were shown around without having to wait on any lines. When we were finished driver dropped us off at the Pier since we were going on a cruise. We loved the fact we had our luggage with us and didn’t have to make any additional arrangements.
Great Quick Private Tour
, Sep 2019
We wanted to see something of Athens before we boarded our cruise ship the next morning. We arrived at 1:00 p.m. and had booked this tour for right after we arrived and so glad we did. Christos was wonderfully patient as customs took awhile to go through. He met us at our hotel, picked up a historian (Reyna) as our guide, and we went straight to the Acropolis and Parthenon. We were able to see everything there and receive detailed history from Reyna. We kind of left other recommendations for site seeing to them and they took us to various sight around the city. There were only the three of us so we could be fairly quick to view the site and get back to move on to the next area. The Mercedes mini van was very clean. Christos was a great conversationalist and didn't mind our inquiries into their culture and way of life. Plus he was very adept at driving in the craziness that is Athens. Reyna was a treasure trove of information. Do yourself a favor and utilize this company.
