Our guide/driver, Odysseas, arrived early at the cruise port with a sparkling clean van, large enough to accommodate all of our luggage from our cruise. He was very knowledgeable in Greek & Roman mythology and history. He gave us valuable insights into all of the monuments on the tour, along with visual aids to show details, highlights and construction techniques. He adapted his tour to include other sights and gave us a continual narrative of things we were seeing and questions we had along our route. My wife was interested in the ancient history and I was interested in Greece’s post 1821 revolution to it’s present history. Odysseas was very knowledgeable in both areas answering our questions and tying together pieces of interconnected history. Our tour ended with being dropped at our hotel. We had a great time on our tour and we’d very highly recommend it to anyone!
I had the honor to spend the day with George! He picked me up from my hotel on time and since I was traveling alone, I told him that since it was extremely hot (over 100f) that I just wanted to see the must sees and eat good food. George took me everywhere and gave me the option to get out and walk around, he had good knowledge of the city. I spent a big chunk of our time at Acropolis. George came prepared with plenty of water bottles for me and was very reliable on where to find him when I was done with my own walking tour of the sights. He took me to this flea market area to eat and I found an amazing gyro place, with tons of other Americans. As a solo traveler, I loved this. I didn't feel so alone! I was only in Athens for 24 hours and was exhausted and felt that our time was well spent and I couldn't be happier.
Odisseas was an exceptionally, well versed guide. His professionalism from pick-up to drop-off was consistent, & I felt safe and at ease under his care. He was charming and hilarious with an ability to answer questions seamlessly while transitioning to new facts at each location. He was a true gem and I'd suggest his services to any incoming tourist. It was the highlight of my short visit. I was able to combine local tradition with an ancient Greek mythology lesson in one setting. Just perfect!
Great tour guide, organized tour. You get to really experience a lot of Athens, and have time afterwards to explore on your own
The tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, gave us time to visit explore and take photos, recommend him to others
