We only had a day and a half in Athens and this half-day tour absolutely made the most of it! Serafim, our driver and tour guide not officially but SO knowledgeable, was absolutely amazing. He communicated well via WhatsApp, picked us up in clean and comfortable Mercedes taxi, was so informative about the city's history and culture, took the best photos, and was so kind and fun! He made sure we had a snack mid-day DELICIOUS pastries we weren't able to find again and still crave and gave us the BEST lunch recommendation. We visited the key sites in Athens, and he made sure to plan around crowds as best he could. It was a great day we will always have very fond memories of.
Serafim - We truly appreciate everything. If you're ever in Los Angeles, you know how to get in touch!
Viator called Spiros at 7 AM the day of our tour and he was on time at nine. It rained with lightening and thunder, but Spiros still gave us an incredible tour! We visited all the fabulous sites in Athens including museums, ancient sites and food stops too! While my husband hiked to the top of the acropolis In thunder, rain and lightening, Spiros sat in the cafe to keep this old lady company and answer all of my questions and share some food. The entire tour was worth every penny and more. We gave a generous tip which our tour guide said was too much but it was just right! Ask for Spiros, as he is just an incredible tour guide, knowledgeable, kind, generous friendly and loves his country! Thank you for a great tour of Athens!
The driver, Bobis, was excellent. He showed us several spots of interest and drove us to places we suggested as well and was available to extend our time at the prearranged rate. There were 6 of us and we were very comfortable in the van. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing Athens for the first time.
We had a fantastic half-day tour!
SLC Taxi provided the tour service and they arrived promptly at 9am.
Serafim was our driver and even though he had to pick us up and drop us off at our far location Vouliagmeni, he still managed to cover all of the main areas, and points of interest, of the tour.
Would we recommend this tour to others?... Absolutely and without hesitation!!
This was the perfect introduction to the city. We chose a pickup time a couple hours after our hotel arrival, which timed our visit to late afternoon-evening. Our guide took us on a quick drive around the major city highlights so we knew where we were and how to plan for what to go back to see the next day, took us up to the highest hill for a great birds-eye view, then took us to spend some time in the Acropolis Museum which gave us excellent access and finally to spend about 90 minutes at the Acropolis with the late evening sun at the perfect angle for photos. At the end, he was happy to drop us off at our dinner restaurant, even walking us to the exact spot to be sure we were settled in for dinner with no issues. He was great: answered all our questions, engaged with every member of my party of seven down to the youngest, and truly helped us feel warmly welcomed in this bustling city. Definitely a pleasure, and we highly recommend.
We had a wonderful day and our driver Spiros was waiting for us on time and was very friendly and professional. Also he was flexible with the schedule and geared it to our interests.. He also gave us great recommendations for restaurants and places of interest to visit in Athens and surrounding area. We would highly recommend this tour company and we use them again on our future travels to Athens and beyond. Thank you Spiros!
We arrived by cruise ship on Easter Sunday. All the museums and site were supposed to be closed for the day. Nevertheless our Taxi tour guide took us to lots of interesting places to get fabulous views of the city. We had unfettered access to the center of town and wonder hillside locations. No, we didn't go into museums, but we felt like we had seen Athens up-close like we never would have gotten to do on a busy traffic day. We saw the Acropolis both near and from vista points the temple of Zeus the old Greek agora and the Roman one the university buildings and even saw the new opera house and library, which were OPEN on Easter Our driver was friendly, loquacious, and knowledgable. Altogether a lemon day turned into lemonade by our tour driver. Would do this again!
Amazing tour! The guide/taxi driver was very informative in everything with perfect English and very welcoming! We truly enjoyed the half day tour and it proved to save us so much time in our few days in Athens. In just a couple of hours you hit all the main spots. He even arranged with us to take us to the airport on our last day. Highly recommend!
