It was a very enjoyable visit to Athens and having a local guide helped.

Stavros Striligas did a great job with seeing the whole city in a matter of 6 hours. We started by looping around the coast then went to a high spot across from the Acropolis, what a view!!! Was watched the changing of the guards, which was a great experience - a do not miss! He was very knowledgeable about the city and the history. We were dropped for lunch in the shopping district. Lunch was really good, seemed like a tourist trap but was not. sorry I do not remember the name of the restaurant. The owners let us go on top of the roof for a great city center view, jewel in the middle of the bussel. We concluded our tour with the Acropolis, mild hike steps, it was very hot July so bring plenty of water. The view from there across to where we started was a great perspective. apologize for not knowing what the cross view was called. Stavros was very personable , not too talky, not too quiet, the perfect guide. You need to book with him instead of the cruise tours, much cheaper and you are on your own schedule!!! Sorry this is a bit late but wanted to make sure we shared our thoughts.

Stavros was an excellent driver and very well informed. Geared his information to the interests of 3 teenage boys. His itinerary was flexible to our needs and he anticipated the best places for us.

We had an incredible time during our day private tour of Athens. Our tour guide was very informative of the history and culture of the historic sites. He helped us get to the front of the line for tickets and saved us a tremendous amount of time at the Acropolis. We toured several historic sites and had a wonderful lunch in city Centre market. We finished our tour atop Athens for fantastic photos.

Could not have been better. Ioannis, our driver, was waiting for us exactly as promised. His English was exceptional and easily understood. We had arranged for our Acropolis tickets to be prepurchased which saved us over a 90 minute wait on line. I can very highly recommend Ioannis and his tour!

Our family was met on time at the port by Yannis S. who politely introduced himself. His Mercedes mini van was impeccable along with his professional and knowledgeable demeanor. We discussed sites we would like to see and relied heavily on Yannis input. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!! I am a very particular person with high expectations and I could not recommend a better way to see Athens. Yannis knowledge of history is beyond words and it was explained in fluent English. Lifetime memories from Athens and thank you Yannis for everything.

I would give this tour a 3 . The guide was punctual and polite. But there was a lack of planning. We were in Athens for the first time and other than wanting to see the Parthenon, we did not know what we wanted to see. It was a disjointed tour. The guide was more of a driver with rolling commentary than a guide. My main complaint was that we would sit in the bus and hear about the site we were going to enter. Then we went into the site. The guide did not go with us, ever. We saw many other tours with guides and wondered what we had paid for as we could have read the commentary in a book. We ended our tour early and paid for a full da tour when we only took a half day, second-rate tour. Very disappointed in this tour and definitely not worth the time or money.
