Good and reliable service. Dora was very knowledgeable and answered all questions with skill and humour. John was a great driverand the minibus clean and comfortable. It has been a dream to see the ruins of ancient Greece and we could not have experienced this in any better way, thank you so much. Dora and John were also kind to us and catered well for the different needs of our party of 10.

We booked a private tour of Athens through tourspiraeus. Our guide was Takis (ask for him) who was not only informative and accomodating but has obvious pride in his city that came through in his descriptions of the sights we visited. Tourspieaeus went out of their way to help us have the best possible experience in Athens. We highly recommend them - and especially Takis.

What a fantastic tour. Our driver/tour guide was waiting for us as we disembarked the ship, and immediately supplied us with ice cold water. We were shown to our private new E class Mercedes and was given a warm welcome and an overview of what we would see throughout the day. Our 1st class driver (Petros) spoke excellent English, and also gave us a guidebook to keep covering all the sights of Athens. The day was well structured, taking us to the Acropolis first to avoid the growing crowds and higher temperatures later. We were then taken on a 60km drive along the coast road to The Temple of Poseidon, with much information being shared by Petros along the way. After our journey back to Athens, we were taken to a traditional family run Greek restaurant where the owner explained about the food options, and provided us with a selection of eight dishes to share, along with bread & drinks all for a meagre 20 euro's.The afternoon consisted of a visit to the Olympic Stadium, followed by The Temple of Zeus and the Museum. We were then driven back to our ship in good time. Petros continually provided us with ice cold water, and ensured we had a very memorable visit to Athens. A****

We were greeted by our driver Vasilis, and throughout the day we had a wonderful time. Not only did he take us around, but also told us many interesting stories. He did more than what we expect from a driver! He also lead us to a good lunch restaurant where the food was both good and the price reasonable. Despite of the limited time, we managed to see all the important sights in Athens thanks to his good planning skill. Thank you, Vasilis!
