Not rushed but got it all in! Definitely a 5 star experience. Pack light, wear comfortable attire, and plan for some bottles of water - there is a moderate amount of walking.

The entire tour was wonderful. Poseidon temple and Acropolis were amazing. Lunch by the sea was something we won't forget. Tolis was a great guide, informative, personable and amusing in all the right proportions. I would highly recommend him to anyone

Great day spent touring key tourist attractions with our driver, Tolis. Visited Parthenon, changing of the guards, stadium, Temple of Poseidon, Acropolis Museum, and lunch by the sea. Tolis was phenomenal - on time, funny, extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and superb English. Glad we didn't end up getting another tour guide as Tolis gave us all the info we needed.

When we booked our flights to Greece, we weren't really sure how we wanted to see all the sites. COVID was a concern for us, so a bus tour was not going to work. My husband and I didn't feel comfortable renting a car. And then I found this tour. I booked it, but I was hesitant. ***10/10 best decision ever.*** Our driver, Vasilis, was so amazing. He picked us up at our hotel in a beautiful Audi. Our first stop was the Acropolis. He gave us a really amazing history lesson, with pictures of what the Acropolis looked like "before" as compared to now. We had around two hours to explore the Acropolis (which was plenty of time), then he took us on a driving tour of Zeus' Temple (we had gone the day before so we didn't stop here), past the Parliament buildings, we stopped for the changing of the Guard, visited the stadium of the first marathon, if is was in Athens, we saw it - all the while, Vasilis gave us an incredible history lesson. We then drove along the coast to see Poseidon's temple at Cape Sounion which was also incredible. Let's be honest - the sites of Athens are incredible and amazing, but it helps to have someone with you to ensure that you are really capturing the spirit of Greece history. Vasilis was so amazing, we just really enjoyed him as a person. Very, very funny and personable, so knowledgeable, could answer literally any question we asked. We were super excited, then, that he was also our driver for the Olympia tour we took the next day.

We had the very best day on this tour. We customized it and added a private tour guide for the acropolis. Our driver was wonderful. We were a group of 8. He picked us up at the hotel at 7:30 and by 8AM we were on the acropolis and had it to ourselves. Our driver (Vasilis) was incredibly knowledgeable and our Acropolis Guide (Vicky) was great too. Besides a two hour acropolis tour we enjoyed: the changing of the guard, the Olympic stadium, Drive bys of Hadrian’s Gate and the temple of Zeus, and a beautiful drive down the coast to the temple of Poseidon, followed by a great seaside lunch (Delicious Moussaka) Admittedly by Poseidon’s temple we were all too tired to make the climb, as Jet lag caught up with us. I would recommend this without hesitation and tailor it to what you want.

I highly recommend starting the day with a guide at 7.30am at the Acropolis to get the most from the experience. Eva, my guide, was amazing. The rest of the day was self-guided, meaning I could go at my own pace and I ended with a lovely lunch.

Wonderful toor. We were a family of 5 with only one day in Athens. This tour covered all the basics and more. Mike was our driver and he also acted as tour guide. Mike was on time, very courteous, and professional. He was very knowledgeable, lot of interesting information. We hired a guide for the Acropolis, Mike can not get into the places, it is worth getting a professional while visiting the places. The inclusion of Poseidon monument is a plus, the views of the riviera are breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour and this company
