From the first message he sent me, Charis Kosmas (the Welcome Pickups driver) was a really gentle, polite and kind person. He let me know that he was waiting for me on the outside of the baggage claim area of the Athens International Airport and helped me with the luggage as soon as he identified me. I only have good words for him. He is a very good driver and made the 40 min ride an amazing cultural experience. I would always recommend him as driver and, especially, if it’s your first time in Greece.

I have used Welcome Pickups several times and it's always been a positive experience. This time Charis was the driver. He is very friendly, professional and polite. With his excellent English, he offered several chapters of his knowledge of the history of Greece (particularly Athens) which was very interesting.
Welcome Pickups was recommended to me a couple of years ago and I still thoroughly recommend them and of course Charis too!

Did not not expect this. An ordinary taxi ride to the hotel turned into a journey full of very useful information. The driver was very friendly and well informed. He also showed me many interesting spots and eateries as I said I came to explore the Athens food scene. We even stopped at a place where I could try a greec dish. Thank you very much Charis Kosmas! Recomanded 100%.

We used Welcome Pickups to schedule a taxi ride from our Athens hotel to the Athens Airport. This allowed for us to pre-pay the fare and we just needed cash for the tip. This experience may be the most positive experience we've had in hotel-to-airport transportation. The driver, Nasos, arrived at our hotel early (and we had a really early departure time). He was friendly and very professional and the ride was informative and relaxing. Nasos shared with us in English some background and details regarding some of the places in Athens that we passed on the ride. He also sent to our mobile device the details of the check-in counter and departure gate. The car was comfortable and in great condition and Nasos supplied bottled water for the ride. Nasos helped the otherwise stressful process of dealing with airports (especially during COVID-19) start out in a relaxed and comfortable way and his brief descriptions of some of the places we passed will help us better remember our time in Athens.

We booked an airport transfer from Athens to the cruise port. The experience started out a little disappointing when we received an email stating that our transfer had been canceled. This happened as we were boarding our plane to Athens. Luckily I had already received an email from our driver (Charis Kosmas) confirming the trip and including his WhatsApp contact info. I reached out to him and he immediately responded saying that the cancellation was a mistake and that he would make arrangements to be at the airport at our scheduled time. We were greeted outside baggage claim and our trip began. He met us with a clean sedan and we loaded up and headed off. Mr. Kosmas was extremely polite, very knowledgeable, and genuinely happy to show us around before dropping us off at the port. We made several stops along the way for photos and history lessons to include the Parthenon, the tomb of the unknown soldier, a coliseum and an amazing ice cream shop! We couldn’t have asked for a better transfer and truly appreciate Mr. Kosmas sharing the history he knows so well.

The booking process was easy and the price was right. Our driver, Dimitrios Nitsokas, arrived early and was very helpful loading luggage for all us seniors. He kept us laughing all the way to the airport and in spite of unexpected traffic delays, he got us to the airport exactly on time! We would definitely use Welcome Pickups again, especially if we can have Dimitrios as our driver!!
