Best Guide!
Sep 2021
Our guide was excellent! She was very knowledgeable in all things Athens. Any questions we had she had the answer no matter if it was on history or current events. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Best Choice for Private Athens Tour!
"Alexander the Great" was a wonderful guide around Athens! He picked us up from our cruise terminal, took us to all the sights, then dropped us at our airport hotel at the end of the day. We loved everywhere to took us and it was so convenient to have the tickets pre-purchased. He gave us information on what we were seeing and the local culture and was very friendly and informative. I highly recommend him and Olive Sea Travel for private tours of Athens! Thank you for a wonderful day!

Amazing Athens Tour!
I have just had the most amazing tour of Athens in the capable hands of a knowledgeable driver: Petros. I was delivered to the Acropolis in good time to see the sites before the onslaught of the crowds. I was then taken to the Agora, the temple of Zeus, Olympic stadium and a wonderful friendly restaurant for a superb Greek meal. Interspersed with excellent backstories to Petros’s own love and understanding of the city, I would recommend this as more than value for money. Thankyou Olive Sea Travel.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see Athens with Olive Sea Travel.
Nov 2021
Simply the best way to see it all. Tas, our guide, was awesome and very accommodating. We started by talking about our expectations and he customized the rest of the day to fulfill them. He explained the sites in detail and added some cultural tidbits and modern ties that were very fascinating. You will feel very special as you ride around in luxury and skip the lines. Lunch was great in a really nice cafe style restaurant. One added touch, we forgot our electric adaptor and Tas took us to a store to find one. Just amazing service. Spend the money and take this type of tour. You will not regret one minute. Thank you Tas for a wonderful day.

The best way to see the highlights and historical sites of Athens in a day.
Petros our guide did an excellent job explaining every site we visited. He has expert knowledge about the history of Athens and Greece. Utilizing his tips on things to look for a each stop enriched our visits. We could not of visited so much in a day without his help.

A Magical Day in Athens
Nov 2021
We enjoyed an incredible day touring Athens with our driver Alexander. The morning started promptly at 8 am as recommended with a magical stop at the Acropolis when the crowds were still light. The day continued with various stops around the city and as we had visited the Acropolis museum the day before, Alexander took us on a beautiful seaside ride to explore another part of the city. We were never rushed and he was flexible to accommodate our needs. So friendly and knowledgeable -- Thank You So Much!

We spent a wonderful day with Tas. He created a tour that met the needs of our age and arranged a meal for us at a Vegan Restaurant to accomodate our dietary requirements. He was knowledgeable about all the sites, made us feel unrushed and effortly got us where we needed to be at times with short lines. He was able to deviate when we asked to see something else. We felt secure, comfortable and cared for on this private tour.
