          Great tour and amazing sunset
          We had a great time with George Remoundos. He drove us around showed us areas took us for coffee and gelato. The Temple of Poseidon was amazing. Please note we got there right in time but they wouldn’t take credit cards at that time. We barely made the cutoff and enjoyed some amazing views. Afterwards we had some dinner at a recommendation from George and it was great. We started our tour at 5pm and it seems like the perfect time to go. For the price and what we got we really enjoyed this tour

          Truly the BEST OF ATHENS
          This tour is perfect! We saw all the major highlights of Athens and also enjoyed a delicious lunch. Alex is courteous and extremely knowledgeable. He picked us up at our hotel in a clean, cooled suv with plenty of bottled water for our excursion. Alex is a local Athenian, a great driver and well-educated to give us a tour of the city. We self-guided through the Acropolis, slopes, and the museum. This is more our style and with Alex waiting for us outside each location, we had a cool car to climb inside as he drove us to all of the stops. Highly recommend!!

          George was great!
          George Remoundos was an excellent tour guide and driver. He was polite and on time. He told us about each site and we appreciated his knowledge of the ancient sites. Can’t wait to book with him next time we are in Athens.

          Great for short stays in Athens
          It was just right for the short time we had in Athens. Got to see all the highlights without waiting for a crowded tour. George Remoundos was great and patient.

          Great time and great value
          Our family of 5 enjoyed this tour very much! Nikos was an engaging and informative guide. Between our port pickup and drop-off, our stops included the Acropolis Museum, the Acropolis site, a drive through Athens to see other ruins, a panoramic viewpoint of the city, Acropolis, and the port, and the changing of the guard at the parliament building. Definitely worth the time and money.

          Tour of Athens
          Our tour of Athens was amazing not just because of the location, but our guide Alex made the experience wonderful and personalized. We were able to have just the right combination of information from Alex and free time to explore and wander at the Acropolis and the museums, as well as getting out to see the Olympic Stadium and the changing of the guard. Alex knew exactly where to go and his timing was perfect. He really provided such great information about the history of Athens and Greece in general, answering all of our questions. We learned so much from him. Not only did Alex provide an in-depth, personalized tour of Athens, but he was also kind enough to take us to the port for our cruise after the tour. I can not say enough about our Athens tour experience, we all agreed that our tour with Alex was the highlight of our entire 10 day trip to Greece. Thank you Alex! We highly recommend this tour.

          A fantastic day seeing the sights in Athens.
          We did this tour with Alex and thought it was fantastic! Alex is a complete gentlemen. He was 20 minutes early, had water for us to drink and always ran around the car any time we got in our out to open the doors for us. He had an amazing amount of knowledge about Athens and answered all of our questions. He dropped us off at the perfect spot for each destination and was always there waiting at the designated time to pick us back up. In the end, we spent closer to 5 hours and covered a tremendous amount of ground. We would absolutely take another tour with Alex!

          Meaningful experience!
          We had a great experience with our driver Alex! He picked us up promptly at our hotel and provided lots of easy conversation and history on the trip over to Corinth. He was very kind and patient with all of our questions, and also gave us tips on navigating Athens along with restaurant recommendations (Dopios, Lukumades)! Alex allowed us to spend as much time as we wished at each site, to really tailor the experience for ourselves. The archaeological museum of Corinth is the perfect size, not overwhelming, to immerse yourself in the history of the site. It's an incredible feeling to wander and be in the same space that Paul was so long ago. We also climbed to the top of the Acrocorinth, which gives the most incredible views of the surrounding area and countryside. We finished with a stop at the ancient port of Kechries, where we were able to stand in the Saronic gulf, and see where Paul left for Ephesus. Great experience overall, highly recommend.

          Wonderful Day Trip from Athens
          Our recent private tour with our driver Alex was an unforgettable adventure that merits a full five stars! From the start, Alex’s professionalism, friendliness, and deep knowledge of the area's history made the trip exceptional. We began at the Corinth Canal, a must see engineering marvel. Given that we had already visited Nafplion, Alex expertly suggested that we visit Ancient Corinth instead which allowed us to also visit the Acrocorinth fort. Mycenae was a highlight, with its fascinating archaeological sites and the legendary Lion’s Gate. Finally, at Epidaurus, we were captivated by the ancient theater's perfect acoustics and stunning architecture. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore these historical treasures. Five stars!

          The best way to experience Delphi!
          This was an AMAZING experience and Alex went above and beyond with offering up tourist tips too for our time in Athens. He was attentive adding a stop for restrooms and coffee on the drive to Delphi. He was always kind, considerate, and polite, opening doors and choosing a great place for lunch with a stunning view. If you are looking for a way to experience Delphi without the normal corralling of regular tours, then I highly recommend doing it with Alex. It was well worth the price to be able to see all the sites at our own pace and with a friendly knowledgeable driver. Thank you Alex!!!

          Best day trip to Delphi
          This was the best day we had in Greece yet. And our driver Alex was the best driver ever. He was on time, polite, kind, courteous, and very knowledgeable. His car was excellent. His service was excellent and I highly recommend asking for him if you take this tour. Lisa Alexander

          Alex is the best!
          We missed our original pick up time and Alex still came back to get us. We made it to the airport safely and promptly. Alex was extremely professional and I had seen he had called me multiple times but I didn’t hear my phone. So so so thankful for him, could not reccomend more!

        Excellent experience from start to finish. Communication was great before the trip even started. They let us know who and when we would be picked up and were even accommodating when we wanted to start a little later. Alex picked us up right on time. He was very pleasant to talk to along the way on our 4 hour trip. We stopped at a nice little rest area and got some what we believe were authentic Greek goodies. The ride went by fairly quickly and was filled with beautiful scenery. Fast forward to Meteora.
        Words cannot describe what we saw. Some reviews said they weren't that impressed and all I can say is holy cow man these monks built these amazing monasteries on top of these wonderful and God created rock formations a really long time ago and six of them are still standing and what an accomplishment. Pictures do not do it justice either. You have no idea what it's like unless you're there. The views on the way up the mountain were breathtaking and I'm a dude that rarely says "breathtaking". Alex was so very warm and friendly allowing us as much or as little time as we wanted to take pictures, tour the inside the monasteries and he gave us lots of information so we could decide which monasteries we would tour. Some are difficult to access and others are very easy. He laid it all out for us so we could make our own decisions. We eventually finished the tour and headed down to Kalambaka for dinner in a wonderful little outdoor cafe on the main road with a pretty fountain and lots of nearby shops. The only thing we would change is to plan an overnight trip and stay the night in Kalambaka. It was a great little village. The food at this cafe (i cannot remember the name but look for a beautiful fountain on the main road) was really good and the bathrooms must be the cleanest in Greece. If you don't know, that part of the world has awful public bathrooms and honestly I can't understand that but it is what it is, they are gross to say the very least. I wouldn't let my dog poop in most bathrooms that I saw out in public. This was not just Greece, Israel, Turkey... all awful. Except for this little cafe in Kalambaka. Cleaner than the best ones I have seen in the US. Ok enough about bathrooms. After we ate we got some more goodies at a small local bakery and they were really good. The place was on the corner directly across from the cafe'. I really do wish we had more time in Kalambaka but the day was already so long and Alex was probably ready to get home to his family. Even though we started later in the day than normal Alex still made sure we still had the full experience. We stopped by to visit Thermopylea and a hot spring then headed back to Athens. Don't get me wrong it was a long day but well worth it and we would pay more if we knew what a great time it would be. Do yourself a favor and if you have time do the two day tour or at least spend more time in Kalambaka. It was a wonderful little town and I would live there one day and run a little cafe' with a fountain when I retire. If my wife would come with me. It was truly a great time and Alex had a lot to do with it. We will always consider him our friend. Ask for Alex
