    Spiros was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable, accommodating, patient, helpful and gave us great tips. We would definitely contact him in future trips back.

    Tour guide was exceptional. We were met at the luggage area by our guide even though we were 2 hours earlier than expected. She was very knowledgeable and took us to all the highlights of Athens.

  • 19-Oct-2022

    Every stop our driver recommended was top notch. The only issue we had was the directions for pick up provided by Viator. We were instructed to walk quite a ways for pick up when our driver was literally sitting in front of our ship. A quick phone call and she found us and we were on our way. The car we were in just the 2 of us was a new Mercedes. We saw many sites but the highlight for this trip was the changing of the guard which the driver recommended.

    This is a nice, personal, way to explore at your own pace. I also appreciated getting tips on things to do for our remaining days in Athens.

    Not what I expected. Directions were confusing. Timing was off. Never had to use him for return to cruise ship. He wanted to take us back to ship at 5:30pm when last boarding was 5pm. You need lots of flexibility. To defend the trip. Traffic was terrible, lines at temple were so long and packed with people.

    Excellent tour! Our guide Spiros was great and we not only learned a lot about the beautiful sites, but also about other parts of the country and Greek culture. He always had cold bottles of water and snacks for us as well. Excellent transportation, communication and logistics and highly recommend him.

  • 24-Jul-2022

    Our driver was beyond fabulous and so knowledgeable. I would recommend this to everyone! We had limited time as Athens was a lay over and he took us to all the right spots. He even took us to a local place for lunch.

  • 19-Jul-2022

    He customized this to our wants and time frame. Picked up at cruise port and dropped off at airport. We even fit in relaxing at a restaurant on the beach prior to going to the airport as kids were exhausted and it was very hot at the historical sites.

  • 10-Jul-2022

    We had a wonderful morning exploring Athens. Our driver was very nice and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every stop. The sites/history were absolutely amazing.

  • 04-Jul-2022

    This was an excellent 5 hour tour with a great authentic Greek dinner to follow. The sights were amazing and not so busy for early July. Thanks for a great experience Spiros and Demetrius!!!!
