hi,we were so satisfied with this tour, i felt so glad that i chose that tour as part of my Athens Visit. Tour Guide and driver both were very professional. They both were on time, as a matter of fact tour guide was 10 minutes earlier and he greeted us very nicely and gave us some information in regarding the tour. then they took us on a nice cool car as was described in the tour description and explained many thing about the places that we visited. Tour guy had many extra information that were very interested and helpful. he arranged everything base on our request, we asked for break and he gave us nice break. he was supper kind, took many pictures of us at the best shoots and many many more things that i didn't expect and never had experienced in previous tours that i took. this tour was absolutely worth every penny that we spent on and we left supper happy with many interesting information and many beautiful pictures and memories. thanks to Yanni our tour guide and Eddy our driver.

Such a great tour and our guide was fabulous! He was so knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions. Our driver was wonderful - dropping off/ picking up at various spots made getting around very easy. Walking around the Acropolis and neighboring museum with a private guide is the best possible way to learn about the area! We also stopped at the Olympic stadium and saw the changing of the guard at the Greek Parliament. So happy we found this tour!

Barbara, our very excellent tour guide, met us in our hotel lobby promptly. We then boarded a Mercedes van well air-conditioned with bottled water and headed to the Acropolis. We arrived early before the crowds were too large and Barbara took many photos of our family so no selfie-stick needed. Barbara gave a very thorough history of the Parthenon throughout the ages. Tour was very relaxed and Barbara allowed us to take it in at our own pace. She then took us through the Acropolis Museum and back to the van for an overview of the city and to watch the changing of the guard. Everyone in our family enjoyed the tour from age 19 to 65. Would highly recommend.

What a wonderful way to start our visit to Athens. Our driver and guide picked us up right on time at our hotel, drove us through town pointing out all the highlights as we made our way to the sites. It was great bypassing the ticket lines as our guide took care of the tickets for the Acropolis, Parthenon, Acropolis Museum and guided us through at a great pace. She was very knowledgeable and answered everything that we asked. It is always nice to have a guide that really focuses on what you want to see and not what they think is important, she was very focuses on our pace and our interests and we loved that. We would highly recommend Siva Private Tours.

I count myself very lucky to have chosen this tour. My guide, Kostos, proved to be a superb companion and, in addition, a qualified archaeologist. He tailored the tour to meet my particular areas of study and it was a delight to be able to discuss the things we explored in such depth. This tour is a must for the amateur or ardent classicist.
