Worth booking this option for Athens!

We were picked up at the port in Piraeus after our NCL Greek island cruise. Alexander, our driver, was there to meet us, give us a great tour of Athens. He was very knowledgeable and it was a very nice time in Athens thanks to Alexander. He guided us to a lovely Greek restaurant for lunch and his driving was superb. He dropped us off at our airport property and stayed with us until he knew we were safely there. Special thanks to Alexander for making our trip to Athens very special.

We had an excellent tour with our guide Dem! The itinerary was great and Dem allowed us to go at our own pace. The van was very comfortable with great air conditioning. Dem has such extensive knowledge about the history and culture here, and we completely enjoyed his narrative throughout the tour. Highly recommend this tour.

Social Distancing did not prevent a great connecting in Greece! Thanks Dim

The word “Excellent” is not descriptive enough for our tour experience in Athens. Our Athens tour was phenomenal! The reason it was phenomenal was because if our tour guide Dimitra (Dim) hopefully I spelled his name properly. He is with Olive Sea Travel if you are looking for an expert to show you around Athens. Dim is professional, polite, knowledgeable, and exudes love for the country of Greece, the people and the culture. Dim has extensive knowledge of Athens rich history and is an artist in how he brings it all to life for visitors. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. Dim took time at every stop to answer our questions and educate us. Never during the tour did we feel rushed. He made sure we enjoyed every stop. Unfortunately a few of the sites were unavailable to us due to the COVID-19 outbreak but again Dim added other sites around Athens that were unique and enjoyable. We especially enjoyed the Athens Riviera and his choice of stops for lunch. Dim has served his beautiful country, is educated and knowledgeable about Greek history, architecture, philosophy and so much more. Thank you for making Athens memorable and enjoyable. We would live to visit again. We will definitely ask for Dim when we arrive. Thanks for your kindness and hospitality during a difficult time for travelers.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Thank you very much for your kind feedback. It always helps Olive Sea Travel and our crew. Dim is a great driver, with deep knowledge in greek history, mythology and the places we visit and a great passion for his job. COVID-19 brings difficult situations, but as long as we are healthy we try to provide travellers with our services. Thank you again for this nice review. We hope you and your family are healthy and to serve you again. Kind regards, Ioanna Gryllaki

Worth it...for a much lower cost.

As much as we enjoyed the convenience of this experience, it wasn’t as thorough as we had hoped for what we paid for. Yes, we appreciated the fact that we arrived to the Parthenon early, and seeing some of the main sights nearby (which are all pretty much walking distance - something a hotel attendee can certainly help coordinate for you). Had we had done this again, we would have looked for a much lower cost for what was provided as part of this service. No real complaints other than that.

Thank you for sharing your feedback for your private tour from Athens city. The professional driver as the rest of our team of Olive Sea Travel works hard to provide you with high quality of services. We try to offer you a cultural and relaxing private tour for you providing a professional driver with deep knowledge of Greek History & Mythology, a safe and luxury Mercedes Sedan, non-smoking vehicle and fully comprehensive insurance policy.

In the that you need a guided tour in the sites, you are able to request and hire a freelancer licensed tour guide for the private tour.
