          Best tour ever. Well organised, great location
          Amazing trip in a wonderful location. I felt always looked after by Patty who organised my trip. Hotels were very well located, clean and personnel very nice. Extra tours were absolutely unforgettable and highly recommend doing them. Drivers were always in time waiting for me and even willing to share the love for their county and culture. No words can describe how much I’ve enjoyed this trip. I’ll definitely connect again in the future for other amazing trips.

          Amazing Greece
          We recently had the pleasure of traveling with Greece Private Tours. It was an amazing experience. The team's expertise, professionalism, and sincerity was evident right from planning to execution. Eleni, Effie and Dimitra went above and beyond to ascertain that we had a stress-free but memorable holiday. Effie even went an extra mile to help me out on my personal issues. Would gladly recommend them to anyone and everyone

          Great holiday! Almost perfect.
          Absolutely perfect until the last stop. The hotels, the guides, the logistics were stellar. It was a holiday for a lifetime. Last stop was Corfu. It was beautiful. The hotel staff was great. The breakfast was top notch. The room? Beyond awful, a stunning let-down to end a perfectly constructed tour.. What a disappointment after the first class hotels prior to Corfu.. Athens Hotel? very good. Mykonos hotel? Very good. Santorini hotel? very good. Crete hotel? very good. Corfu? The room was only comfortable when only one person was in the room. Two people? One too many without carefully pre-planned choreography. Modesty? Forget that with floor to ceiling "almost opaque" glass doors that insure all bowel activity is on near-perfect display with no available place to avoid the show, sounds, smells. Hotel staff was top notch. Breakfast was fabulous. The room was annoyingly small and aggravatingly, uncomfortably cramped.

          Walking the Footsteps of Paul in 2024
          The views were amazing. It has been three weeks since we have returned, and I am still in awe of the many experiences looking through photos. Our driver, George, became like family. He was kind and gifted. Our guides were very informative. There were a couple hiccups along the way which were addressed quickly and to our satisfaction, Effie is very attentive to our needs and requests. I miss it already! My only negative, if I had to search for one, was to have more biblical scholar teaching, the guides were well versed in history but I would have like more scriptural references.

          17 day private tour in Greece
          Private Tours went above and beyond our expectations. We had never visted Greece and their customized 17 day tour covered more than we anticipated while still leaving us time to explore on our own. Our drivers, while insisting that they were not guides, were informative and more than willing to make stops en route. Special thanks to our driver Theo who accompanied us for five days through the Peloponnese and Meteora. Our days on the road usually started at 8 and sometimes ended with Theo driving us to our accommodations after dinner. All of our guides at historical sites - too numerous to mention - were great and helped us steer clear of bus loads of other visitors. While we indicated an interest in archeology, the short stops at olive and honey farms were memorable highlights of the trip. Our hotels - especially luxury resorts on Mykonos and Santorini - were outstanding and our hotel in Athens was a short walk from restaurants in Plaka and all the sites near the Acropolis. I would definitely use Private Tours again.

          Perfect & Awesome
          Everything was amazing from beginning to end. The staff was very informative and answered all my questions prior to our trip. Everything was transparent. The cost of the tour was extremely reasonable for the experience that we received. We had private drivers who were friendly and knowledgeable. When we went to the museum the tour guide was well versed about the artifacts and displays at the museum. She was such a delight to have along with us. The drivers were always on time for pick up. They gave us a lot of valuable facts about the area. I would highly recommend this tour.

          IIncredible Greek Tour with Yiannis Including Sunrise & Sunset Photoshoots In Meteora! Meteora Was Magical!
          I went with three of my friends on this tour to Olympia, Delphi, & Meteora with Yiannis (John) from Athens. Yiannis was so knowledgeable about the places. He was interesting & easy to talk to. The crowning jewel was visiting Meteora and its monasteries in the sky! Nothing else on earth looks like it! It was magical! Yiannis went out of his way to arrange a sunset & sunrise photoshoot for my photography-loving sister-in-law in Meteora! He took us to a great seaside cafe on the Aegean Sea on the way back to Athens! The trip was a blast! I would highly recommend Yiannis! His tour was a 10/10! Avis

          Small group tour of Greece
          This was an amazing and educational trip following the footsteps of St. Paul and visiting historic sites in Greece. The tour company was always responsive to our questions and needs. Our driver, George, was magnificent. He listened to our desires and requests and brought us safely to each destination. We cannot say enough good things about this experience and would highly recommend them.

          Amazing, Amazing, AMAZING!!!!
          I wish I could give this tour 10 stars!! Spyros was nothing short of amazing. The cost of the trip was very affordable, but after going, I would have paid double for the experience. Spyros was our private driver for the entire tour. He was knowledgeable about all of the locations and gave us a complete historical run down prior to going to every museum, archeological site, monastery, etc…. We stayed in a four star hotel every night and looked forward to a traditional Greek breakfast at every stop. Spyros was prompt every morning and made sure to point out all the important locations and local restaurants we should try. If we are ever able to make it back, Spyros WILL be our guide. Ask for him by name and you will not be disappointed!!!

          We booked the 12-day trip to Greece, and everything was perfect! Breathtaking landscapes, rich history delicious cuisine. Highlights included Athens, Santorini, and Meteora. The cost was reasonable, and the hotels were boutique cozy very nice, away from tourist crowds. We loved the local cuisine, especially in Meteora. Highly recommended ◦ 1

          Memorable Greece holiday with Private Tours Greece
          We just returned from a 11 day Greece tour covering - Athens, Mainland Greece(Mykines, Epidaurus, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora) & Santorini. The entire tour including hotels, transfers, site visits & guides were managed by Private Tours Greece and for sure it was a seamless, memorable experience for our family. Firstly, i want to thank Dimitra for working with us over emails + calls to work out a private tour itinerary covering major archeological sites and places of mythological interest. She was very responsive and patient in accommodating modifications. Thanks and Kudos to Patty our tour coordinator who was super responsive and always communicating with us in WhatsApp. All the hotels were comfortable, as promised and had extra beds to accommodate the 3 of us. In fact few days before the trip one of the hotels had to be changed in Athens and Patty was very gracious in arranging a complimentary dinner for us in Athens due to the inconvenience. We spent the first couple of days in Athens and went to the Acropolis of Athens + Museum on the first day. Our guide Eftychia was right on time at the hotel and told us some amazing stories and history of the sites including the museum. Thanks to Spiros for the transfers. We were late and could not go to Mount Lycabettus due to traffic blocks but Patty ensured that we were able to cover it on the last day of our mainland tour. Highlight of our entire tour was the Mainland trip and here i have to thank Aggelos(Friend/Guide & Driver) for making it memorable. He is knowledgeable about mythology, archeological sites etc. and he ensured us that we had a great experience for 4 days covering major parts of Mainland Greece( Mykines, Epidaurus, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora). Aggelos was very accommodating and had good knowledge of local culture & had connections in all places. He had good suggestions for places to eat especially since we were vegetarians. The Mercedes Mini Van was very comfortable and given the shoulder season we were able to enjoy all the sites with wonderful local guides without a lot of crowd. I would suggest everyone to use local guides in the sites as there is lot of history & information which they share and it is also a way for travelers to give back to the community. We ended our trip with a couple of days in Santorini. We stayed in Thira and the view from the hotel was breathtaking. We would highly recommend Private Tours Greece if you want to visit Greece and would not hesitate to use them in the future.

        My daughter and I enjoyed an amazing 5 day tour of Ancient Greek sites. But it was so much more than that. Aggelos, our driver, gave us insights into Greek culture, politics, everyday life and most importantly, the history of the sights we visited. The car was great and everything was extremely well organised. We had some interesting adventures along the way and Aggelos handled problems with ease. The sites themselves were absolutely mind-blowing and will stay with us forever. To touch the ancient stones at Mycenae, to see the ruined Temple of Zeus, to see the stadium at Delphi were just a few of the many highlights of the trip. I would recommend this company to anyone. We have had the best tour!

        7 of us friends, including 3 couples, took the 5 day tour. It was a great time, and we learned a lot. Having the tour guides at each spot was really helpful to hear about the history without having to read about it ourselves. A warning though…it is A LOT of driving. The last two days are basically all day in the van. Also, due to wind, we didn’t get to do our boat trip to Shipwreck Beach while on Zakynthos. No one’s fault, but I hadn’t really thought about the potential of missing that. But I have to say that our driver, George, was absolutely awesome!!! He was SO much fun and accommodating and you could tell he wanted to give us the best experience possible!! HUGE thanks to George for making the trip great!!

        Our group of 4 took the 5 day classical tour to Olympia, Zakynthos island and Meteora with many other stops and sights in between. From the enquires to booking, this company were very professional and easy to communicate with. The itinerary is very busy but covering many interesting places that we would not have been able to visit on our own. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable and although we had paid for 3* hotels, the ones in Olympia & Zakynthos were 4* - added bonus! But the highlight of our tour was our fantastic driver - Spyros Theodorelos! This young man was not only extremely professional, insisting on opening our doors, but he was very personable and had a good sense of humour. Spyros is a very careful and experienced driver - a very important aspect in Europe. He went above and beyond to ensure we saw the very best of Greece in those few days. We also booked the Athens and Cape Sounion tour and specifically asked for Spyros again. We do not hesitate in recommending Private tours Greece but make sure you ask for Spyros!

        We did a 5 day Classical tour across Greece with the very good driver Nikos who provided plenty insights into Greek culture and lots of laughs along the way.

        The accommodation was excellent, the food amazing and Nikos was professional and punctual.

        We would highly recommend this tour and Nikos who provided an experience that exceeded expectations.

        Let me begin by saying the customer service is excellent. The sales manager, Dimitra, took care of absolutely everything we needed plus more. All tours/tour guides/fees were taken care of before we arrived. The tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. The itinerary was planned out perfectly to maximize enjoyment of this beautiful country. While the sites were incredible, the true highlight of our trip was our driver, George. Uncle George was indispensable. His personality, knowledge, humor, kindness, and friendly attitude truly made the trip as good as it could possibly have been. He routinely went out of his way to provide us with the best of everything. He went above and beyond. I can't say enough about how amazing this man is. We met him as a stranger and left him as a friend. He became part of our family. Look no further than Private Tours Greece for anything and everything Greece related. They are the best.

        We did a 5 day classical tour across Greece and it was absolutely amazing!!! We booked our trip very last minute (not recommended), literally a week and half before we decided to leave... Private tours Greece by Ioannis K. Tsoros was very accommodating... First they made adjustments to the 5 day tour, and was able to customize it into 4 days because we had to fly out a little earlier than planned. This trip was the absolute best we have ever had with many thanks to SPIROS! He is absolutely amazing! It was our first time in Greece and SPIROS made sure we had the best experience!!! He is very knowledgeable, friendly and inviting, and could not have had a better person provide us with this Tour! We are forever grateful. We are definitely planning another trip to Greece and we would not tour with any other company other than Private tours Greece by Ioannis K.
