This was such a great way to see Athens when you only have a day or so in the city. We got to see so many historical places and learned a great deal in the process. Lunch was delicious as well. All in all, it was a really fun day!

A tour not to miss if you want to cover Athens in a day

The visit to the Acropolis of Athens was certainly the highlight of the day...an incredible place. Sounion was also great, and a place I had never heard of prior to the trip. The drive there was beautiful. Guide/driver was informative and full of interesting stories. Definitely a tour worth taking.

The best way to do Athens in a day
Jeannette
, Jun 2021
Amazing tour and service! This was the best way to do Athens in a day. The vehicle had true a/c (a must with 100 F/ 40 C), our driver Tolios was fun and full of information, and we also added a licensed tour guide in the Acropolis and Acropolis museum. Sounion was beautiful and it was worth the hour + trip outside of Athens. We had lunch included as well, which made everything super easy. Highly recommend!

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!
