Very enjoyable half day private tour. George, our driver was waiting for us on time. The vehicle was well presented and comfortable with a video screen built in. In addition to providing the dialogue for the DVD, George explained in depth local history and customs. He was very friendly and helpful and took us to places that tourist buses would not have been able to get to. The cost was comparable with that which we would have paid with our cruise company, but had the advantage of it being tailored to suit us. We would use this company again if in Athens. Thank you George for a lovely day.

We did the day trip to Athens and Corinth. It was amazing! Our tour guide Kostos was great. His knowledge of both Athens and Corinth was excellent and his English was very fluent. The tour was great for anyone who likes to go at their own pace. We took our time at the Acropolis and hit the rest of the sights in Athens fairly quickly, then went to Corinth and had plenty of time to see everything. Lunch was great as well. Highly recommend!

My whole experience with Tours Piraeus has been just terrific! There was plenty of correspondence ahead of time, allowing me to tailor our tour to our family. They advised us as to what to book, what was included and what was best to see.

And what was booked was awesome!! We had three generations traveling together; teenagers, our daughter and husband in their forties, and my husband and I as grandparents. We were met by our driver and guide with big smiles, and welcomes, which immediately set the tone of the day. Our driver was Notis and we were continually in awe with the finesse with which he navigated the traffic in the close quarters of the streets. We got to the Acropolis well ahead of the busloads, so had a marvelous first hand climb without being mobbed.

Our guide was Ourania, who told us she was an Art History Major, and her knowledge and ability to make such incredible antiquities come alive was just fantastic. She spent the whole day with us, which was the smartest decision we made,.as the continuity of the day was really good. We had a small van for six of us, Notis the driver and Ourania, our guide, so we were able to chat, ask questions, stop, take pictures, all for less than what we could have taken the family to Disney for the day. It was an experience we will never forget, and we were thrilled when our fifteen year old grandson volunteered information about the antiquities, that he had been studying at school, and that it was cool to see it first hand.

We ended the day atop a hill looking over at the Acropolis, with the Parthenon all lit, the city of Athens sparkling, and all of us in awe at the beauty of such an amazing city. Thank you Ourania for making it so special, and Notis for keeping us not only safe, but enjoying that roller coaster ride that is traffic in Athens!

There were seven adult family members on a cruise that had an absolutely fabulous day visiting Athens and Corinth because of Tours Piraeus. Kostas was an excellent driver and source of information. Because of his help, one of our group who was incapable of walking up to the Acropolis was able to use the elevator so she could see the Parthenon. All thoroughly enjoyed seeing the primary sites in Athens and learning about its history. Kostas arranged for an excellent Greek lunch at a fun restaurant full of locals in Athens giving us a great taste of typical Greek food for a reasonable price. He gave us an excellent feel for both Ancient Corinth and the Acrocorinth. He went out of his way to help us see as much as we could. This was an excellent day for a great price. The reservation process went very smoothly. Tours Piraeus was very responsive to our questions in setting up our tour reservation. Based on our experience, we highly recommend them.
