The guide (Joe) was excellent! He was very professional and knowledgeable. The Acropolis Museum was beautiful. The changing of the guards at the Parliament Building was memorable.

Our driver dropped us off at the Parthenon and we were given only an Hour and a half to do a self guided tour. We then we were dropped off at the museum for an hour. We were unable to go by the palace bc the roads were blocked.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We take everything very seriously and always try to provide the best services we can. We feel sorry that we did not meet your expectations, but we would like to note that: a) the total duration of this private tour is 5 hours b) at the "What to expect" section, we describe that the typical duration at the Parthenon is 30 minutes, but you decided to stay there for an hour and a half c) at the additional information of the product we describe that: "Our drivers are not official tour guides, but they are knowledgeable and can provide fascinating commentary in fluent English. Although they will not enter the archaeological sites with you, they can answer all of your questions about the places you visit with this tour." d) there is an option to book a licensed tour guide that can accompany you in the sites, but you have not asked for one e) at the "What to expect" section, we describe that the typical duration at the Acropolis Museum is 1 hour and 30 minutes, but you decided to stay there for an hour e) the fact that the roads were blocked is something that we cannot control We try very hard to provide detailed and clear description of the services/ products we offer. Hope to see you again and try to change your mind about our company.

We got off ferry and guide was waiting with van for all our luggage and us and bottles of water for us. We were driven and dropped off to see Acropolis and then the museum. We also stopped and got out and saw the changing of the guards at the tombs of the unknown soldiers. Very neat to watch. We were then brought to our Airbnb and had to wait on the host and guide stayed with us and our luggage to make sure he showed up.

Our driver James was very nice. He came to our hotel on time and took us to all the places that need to be seen in Athens. We were not rush at all. We took our time to take pictures and explored different places in Athens. We stop by Acropolis, then to Mount Lycabettus, saw the changing guards and passed by many other places. One of the greatest moment was that I was able to race my daughter and niece at the Panathenaic Stadium. Of course, I was the gold medalist. We stopped at Plaka and shop a little bit as well. Whole tour was totally relaxing and at last he even took us to the local restaurant by our request to try the Greek Souvlaki. James was so nice and wait for us until we finish eating, then took us back to the hotel.

Went like clockwork

Costas met hubby and me at the port in a spiffy yellow Mercedes and deftly maneuvered through a busy city to the base of the Acropolis. We toured at our leisure, then called him for a pickup. He was very good at offering suggestions of sights we might want to see, and was flexible when we told him our choices. We went to the Plaka also, where he left us and picked us up promptly at our chosen time. Very congenial guide with a good command of English, who was very proud to show off his city.

Private tour in Athens

The tour guide has limited English. He was more less a driver than a tour guide. We were frustrated and unhappy through the whole tour.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
We appreciate your feedback as we are taking everything very seriously. This is a very popular product, that has many excellent reviews and we feel sorry for the inconvenience and the bad experience you had. However, we would like to inform you that this tour does not include an official tour guide, something that is well described in the basic inclusions of the product. We offer an official tour guide, but this is optional and you never asked for one. Furthermore, our drivers are knowledgeable with a very good English level, something that is highlighted by the positive reviews we get. We always aspire to improve our services and ourselves.
