What to expect
Your private tour begins with pickup from your accommodation in Athens or Piraeus, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle equipped with Wi-Fi and destined for some of Athens’ most popular attractions.  Head first to Athens’ most famous and instantly recognizable landmark: the UNESCO-listed Acropolis. Topped by the magnificent Parthenon and the Agora of Athens, the ancient site offers panoramic views of Athens from its hilltop perch. Then, proceed to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and catch a changing of the guard ceremony outside of the Parliament Building (Vouli). See, too, the Academy of Athens, the University of Athens, and the National Library: three distinctive modern buildings designed by the Danish architects, Theophil and Christian Hansen. Marvel at the all-marble design of the Panathenaic Stadium, home to the world’s first Olympic games, and then return to antiquity at the Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch — two ancient Greek structures. Finally, your tour concludes with drop-off at your Athens or Piraeus accommodation.

Great way to see things a bus tour just can't show you!!!
Oct 2018 • Couples
We had a great time on this private city tour of Athens! Terry, our guide was great. He had so much knowledge about the city and we learned way more than if we had gone on a bus tour. Because my BF had injured his knee, we did not want to go to the Acropolis. So Terry took us to various places where we could see it, including Lykavittos Hill, 277 meters (910 ft) above the city. What an amazing view!! We also saw Hadrians library and where there were tunnels going underneath the city. He was friendly and the car was clean and we really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend Cattaxi and use them again when we return! They have also developed an extraordinary VR app for an immersive experience of ancient Athens that is quite unique.

Fantastic Start to our Greece Vacation
Jun 2018 • Family
Our tour of the ancient sites of Athens was made so much more enjoyable thanks to the great job that Terry did. Terry was extremely professional and polite right from the start of our tour. What we liked best is that Terry provided tremendous content and context of each site that he took us to visit. His insight really made the experience so much more enjoyable and educational. Terry also let us tour each site at our own pace. Our tour was more like a 3/4 day tour. At the end of our day, Terry took us to a Greek taverna that had really outstanding food at a reasonable price. We also got a chance to have our first Mythos beer!!

To wrap everything up, Terry had my daughter download an app and gave her a viewer that allowed her and us to see the historical sites of Athens as of they were still standing in their full glory. It was a fantastic way to end our day.

My family and I would highly recommend CATTaxi and Terry. Terry was fantastic and really started our Greece vacation on such a positive note!!

Terry helped us get around Athens showing us all the important sites we wouldn't even have considered visiting.
He also helped us with the rest of the trip telling us which roads to drive through and which places to stop over.
Highly recommended.
