Not what we had in mind. Glorified taxi
Michael_B
, Aug 2020
Essentially a glorified taxi unfortunately. Not precisely what we had in mind. Very little by way of information passed on from our driver (guide) to us...
icon Response from Host , Aug 2020
Thank you for your useful feedback. We are sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the tour as you had imagined. Our drivers always provide our drivers with high level of services, but are not licensed tour guides, so they are not allowed by law to accompany you in the archaeological sites or give you archaeological details. If you needed a licensed tour guide to give all the historical information you could have asked for one with an extra cost. Thank you again for the feedback. Stay safe. Kind regards, Ioanna Gryllaki

Best Athens Tour
Ashley_B
, Jul 2020
We booked this tour with my mom and 21 year old brother. We were in Athens for a total of 3 days and wanted to see everything! This was the most convenient way to see all the major sights. Especially since we were here in July which was very hot, the private van with AC was superb! Our tour guide, wish I could remember his name, was amazing! Bought our tickets, drove us perfectly from sight to sight, waited for us, and was very punctual. I definitely recommend this tour to someone who doesn't want to be listening to a tour guide for hours.

Thank you for your kind feedback. It is so nice to hear that even under this situation you had such a great time. All our staff works their best to make your experience in Greece unforgettable. We hope to provide you our services again. Until then, stay safe. Kind regards, Ioanna Gryllaki

Not Private Tour but Private driver tour
Branislav_S
, Feb 2020
I am using Viator for many years and I recommended Viator to many of my friends, but first time I felt cheated. I booked this tour to visit main sites of Athens within one day as we did in December in Budapest and it was perfect! This tour should be in part of private transfer and not signed as a Private tour: I received Limo service with driver which was trying his best but his duty was to bring us to the sight and we have to go alone! This was really bad service. Company itself is very good prepared for this cheating: of course they were clever and it is true, they are sending you confirmation e-mail where is clearly stated the tour is not giving guide for tour :( Driver told me we could book it if we would be interested! But thew were not offering it despite the fact we were mailing more times because of agreement for place for pick up! But Viator should check it if the service which is offered it correctly put in the correct type of service!
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Mr. Branislav, We understand your disappointment but you should be more disappointed with yourself as you are the only one of our clients that didn’t manage to read the inclusions and exclusions of his tour package. It is mentioned 4 times, in 4 different places (before and after you confirm the booking) that the licensed tour guide is an option with an extra cost. If you had asked for it, we would gladly offer you the service. So there is no need to feel cheated. Next time you will feel “less cheated” if you read the details of your tour. It is not Viator’s fault and it is not our fault.

Excellent personalized concierge service. Attention to detail and very good orientation prior to arrival at the sights that we visited. The guide Ms Ionna was extremely informative and the driver very kind and welcoming. Very glad we booked this private tour.

An excellent Private Tour

An excellent day and superbly navigated by our driver Fotis. He structured the day to miss the queues, and his restaurant recommendation for lunch was spot on. We’d highly recommend this trip.

Best way to see Athens
Susan W
, Dec 2019
Our guide, Panos, picked us up at our hotel right on time and whisked us away on a daylong adventure! There were six of us, and I am moderately disabled and had to bring my wheelchair. Panos was so attentive and never made me feel like a burden. He paved the way for me whenever possible and was a perfect intermediary for me in explaining and translating. His English is excellent, his knowledge of the city is superior and his driving was incredible in these crazy streets! I felt safe and I was fascinated by all the tidbits of information and history. He made Athens come alive for us not only in the big tourist draws but all around the city. I learned so much! We asked a LOT of questions and he cheerfully answered them all, even cultural questions not limited to the tour. We had the best day ever with him and not only do we highly recommend him, we will absolutely ask for him again when we come back.

It was a pleasure to have you as our guest in our country! We are pleased for our driver Panos! We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your positive input and we hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Eleftheria Nikoloudaki

We arrived into Athens and had the most amazing day with our Guide. There is nothing quite like being able to explore one of the cities with SOOOOO much to see at a pace that is uniquely your own. Olive Sea Travel was the perfect choice for my daughter and I. Highly, highly recommend them!

Informative Tour

Our tour guide, Dem, picked us up from our hotel and shared our itinerary for the day. He took the time to share the history of each of our stops, and answered all of our questions. He would drop us off at each location, and give us a recommended time to stay. This helped us manage our time to maximize the amount of things we were able to experience. Dem was incredibly accommodating and even took us to a McDonald's for lunch (which was one of our request.) I highly recommend this tour and can't say enough nice things about Dem!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2019
Thank you very much for such great review! We work really hard to offer the best services in the best possible conditions and we are happy to see that reflected on your visit in Athens. Dem is one of of the best drivers that we have and tries very hard to offer you unforgettable memories! We hope to see you again in your next vacations! Best regards, Eleftheria Nikoloudaki

Demosthenes, our driver, and Eva, our guide, did a magnificent job showing us Athens around. We went to the Parthenon at the Acropolis, ruins of the old city, and the highest point of the city. Eva knew a lot about history and mythology that helped us truly enjoy the trip
