Great Service!
bethmz, Jun 2022
Mike was a great driver and was very informative with helpful tips for getting around the historical sites. The restaurant he recommended was delicious. I would definitely recommend this service, especially if you only have a day or two in Athens.
Response from Host, Jul 2022

Hadi_A, Jun 2022
Our driver Alexander was very kind and knowledgeable. It would have been better if he could have accompanied us to the various sites and given a more detailed historical description as we viewed the site. It was very nice to be driven from site to site and not have to navigate the streets of Athens.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hello and thank you for your review. Unfortunately in Greece the drivers are not allowed by the Greek Authorities to accompany you inside the sites and the museums. As you can see in the exclusions you could request for a Licensed Tour guide and he/she will be able to accompany you in the sites and the museums. We wish you a nice trip back home and we hope to see you again in the future for more great days. Best regards Elegant Greek Tours Team
Perfect one day in Athens
Derek_H, Jun 2022
I booked this Athens tour for my family of 4 on our Celebrity cruise around Greece. Dimetrius, our driver, was highly professional, on time, very knowledgable and made our 1 day in Athens the best it could have been! He was fast! Got us where we wanted to go and gave us excellent recommendations. We toured the Acropolis and the surrounding area; he got us in the museum quickly and efficiently; we made it to the changing of the guard; a fabulous lunch; shopping; etc. Everything we wanted to do! I would HIGHLY recommend him and the tour. You will not go wrong.

Such a great tour!
Gina_W, Jun 2022
Lisandro, our driver, was excellent. He was so knowledgeable about the history of Athens and did an amazing job of telling us what we were seeing around the town, as well as the history of the sights we were seeing. We traveled with 2 9 year olds who absolutely loved him! He made it fun for them as well. We had a fantastic lunch and he had us back to the cruise port on time. We never felt rushed. We can’t think of a better group to give a tour of Athens, especially Lisandro!
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Thank you for your kind Review. A big thanks from Lisandro and all the team for your nice words. Best Regards Elegant Greek Tours Team

Athens
Mari_F, Jun 2022
Was a great way to see Athens and not feel rushed. Our driver was knowledgeable and nice. Could spend as much or as little time at each stop as wanted. The lunch at the local place was the best food we had while in Athens and the portions super filling. Not to mention having air conditioning between each stop was much appreciated

An Amazing Day in Athens
Steve, Jun 2022
This was by far the best tour our our 10 day Greek Islands/Mediterranean cruise. Initially, communication with the tour company was excellent. Before leaving the U.S. I received a telephone call from Athens to clarify an issue with my booking. I received multiple text messages regarding who our driver was and where to meet him. This eased any anxiety we might have felt regarding taking a non-cruise line excursion. Our driver/guide, Dimitris, was waiting for us at the port as soon as we disembarked. The first thing he asked us was what were the things we wanted to see, and the tour was tailored to our interests. He was extremely knowledgeable about the sites and history of Athens, and the tour was conducted in an organized fashion. Although we had been to Athens before, Dimitris took us to see things we had not seen previously, such as the Acropolis Museum and the changing of the guard at Syntagma Square. We can not say enough good things about Dimitris and the time we spent together. It was a very memorable day. We cannot recommend this tour enough.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Thank you for your nice review. We are glad to see that you had good time with us. We always trying our best to show you the city and the Greek life in only one day! We want you to feel like locals and enjoy like Greeks. This is our goal! We are waiting for you in the future to give you another great experience! Best Regards Elegant Greek Tours Team

Private tour with Dimitris was GREAT
Taylor_V, Jun 2022
Dimitris, our driver, did a superb job. We (my mom + dad, 62yo, and myself and my bf, 26yo) debated getting a guide as well but there were none available on our dates- however we didn't feel like we missed out due to having Dimitris as our driver. He gave us in-depth and thoughtful information just prior to visiting sites like the Temple of Zeus, The Acropolis and the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He answered all of our questions with a clear and thorough understanding of Greek history and culture. Whether we were talking about ancient Greece, modern Greece or family we were impressed with Dimitris' pride for his country. Other notes: -super easy to find as soon as we got off our cruise ship -really personalized the tour based on what we were interested in and our time frame to get back on our cruise ship -friendly, personable, communicative, flexible Thank you Dimitris!
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hello. Thank you for your positive review. We are glad to see that our clients had good time with us and going back home with nice memories from our country. A big thank you from Dimitris and all of us. We hope to see you again in the future for more adventures. Best regards Elegant Greek Tours Team.

Best day ever, in Athens!
DeEtte_W, May 2022
What a wonderful day! Dimitris our driver was so knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. Very professional and his job is clearly his hobby. The Van was so nice and kept cool for our return each time. We visited everything you could want to do in one day very easily. We learned about the history before we arrived to a site then he elaborated about things we saw after. Lovely restaurant we ate at and we're not rushed for any of the tour. Can't say enough good things. Even conversing with the tour operator, Alexandros, was excellent. He was very nice and accommodating. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Response from Host, Jun 2022

We enjoy every tour with you and we are becoming part of the group. We hope to see you again in the future for one more great day. Best regards from us and Dimitris. Elegant Greek Tours Team.
Best private tour experience
Kenneth_L, May 2022
This was an outstanding experience! Alex was the best private tour guide we have had by far. Very knowledgeable and excellent organizational skills. His timing of meeting us at each pick up after our viewing sites was spot on. Highly recommend this private tour and Alex if you can get him specifically.
Response from Host, May 2022

Good transport, not skip the line/not guided
Austin_P, May 2022
Dimitri was very nice and informative. Car was clean. Lunch spot was very good. Please note: this is NOT a skip the line tour. We had a significant line for the acropolis (even with tickets) of 45+ minutes. The other stops didn't have much of a line. If you do this tour, absolutely get a guide. We tried, unfortunately too late, which just means your walking around on your own with no information inside the sites. Overall I would have either picked a tour that had a tour guide inside the sites-which is an optional add on but due to the busy weekend we were unable to obtain one.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for your review. We always skip the lines to purchase the ticket. But unfortunately in the Acropolis - Parthenon when its very busy (usually when we have lot of cruise ships) we are not be able to skip the line in the entrance. Its not just us but all the companies and this is because there is not any fast lane pass or vip pass to buy. So what we do is to help you skip the line to purchase the ticket that sometimes is huge. So we don't have an option for the Acropolis entrance line when its busy. Its by the Greek state and we hope that will change soon. For the guides that can accompany you inside the sites and museums you can also see that in the exclusions. We explain to our clients that they have to request one with an extra charge (due to availability) if they like. If not , they are doing the tour with our drivers that all of them are very professionals, but they cannot accompany you inside the sites and museums as its forbidden by the Greek Law. Have a nice trip back home and we hope to see you again in the future. Best regards Elegant Greek Tours Team

We had a great day with Dimitris! He was Professional and at the same time very easy to talk to. He knew so much history and told it way better than my teachers in school. You can't go wrong on this tour. WE beat the crowds, ate at a great restaurant, and found Athens a city of amazing history and people. William
