What to expect
  • Choose a morning of afternoon departure, and meet your expert driver at your central Athens hotel. Board your air-conditioned vehicle and begin your private tour, exploring the sights independently. While your itinerary is pre-planned, it can be customized, so tell your driver if you want to spend more or less time at any site. View the Panatheniac Stadium, the white-marble arena built for the first modern Olympics in 1896. Learn how the stadium replicates its 4th-century BC predecessor, and then continue to see the nearby ruined Temple of Zeus, the Athens National Gardens and the Greek Parliament building on Syntagma Square. At the parliament, take photos of the traditionally dressed guards, and watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, set at the front of the building.  Next, walk up to the Acropolis to witness the glorious 5th-century BC monuments of this ancient citadel. View the Parthenon, Propylaea, Erechtheion and Temple of Athena Nike, and gain insight into how they represented the incredible wealth and art of ancient Athens. Admire the city views from here, and perhaps pause for refreshments (own expense), before descending to the ruined Agora, the city’s one-time marketplace and civic center. Afterward, reconvene with your driver and finish with a hotel drop-off.

Oct 2018 • Family
My family, grandparents, my wife and myself and three young children did a half day tour guided by Barbara. She was amazing. My Dad suffers from Parkinsons so walking can be difficult, Barbara went out of her way to make sure he was always comfortable. My three young daughters immediately took to Barbara and spent most of the afternoon jostling to be the one holding her hand. Her knowledge of the sites was superb and we all learnt a huge amount.

We felt like we had spent the day we with a knowledgeable friend rather than a guide.

The mini coach provided was also impeccably clean and comfortable with good aircon. The driver was steady and helped ensure my fathers mobility scooter was loaded and loaded carefully at each stop,

Jul 2018 • Couples
Our driver/tour guide, Appolstolis spoke excellent English, was friendly and very knowledgeable. He promptly picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the main sights in Greece. He even walked with us through a park to see the changing of the guard in front of Parliament. He took us to a great little shopping/lunch area in Plaka. Excellent tour, the best tour guide and driver! I highly recommend this tour.
