Full description
This private tour of Athens will allow you to enjoy the city's greatest sights at your own pace from the comfort of your own taxi. After being collected from a pre-arranged location of your choice, your first stop will be the Acropolis. Here you can climb the smooth marble steps on the Sacred Way, admire Propylaea gateway, and enjoy the stunning views of Athens from the highest point in the city. You might want to visit the two ancient theaters, the Theater of Dionysus and the Odeon of Herod Atticus, or marvel at Hadrian's Arch and the ruins of the Temple of Olympian Zeus. You can watch the changing of the guard at Constitution Square or visit the Panathinaiko Stadium, home to the 1896 Olympics. Alternatively relax in the National Garden, or enjoy exploring the narrow streets of Plaka.

George was our driver and he was awesome. He grew up in Athens and you could tell was very passionate about telling us about his city. The car was very clean, he had cold waters for us ready to go, and showed us all the best places. Thank you George!

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We were tired after 4 hours but our driver was very accommodating to take us back early to the hotel.
