Petros, my driver, was fantastic! He took me many places I had not seen in Athens even though I had visited 6 times before. He never made me feel rushed and provided much history.

Our driver Petros made our tour one of the best and most memorable we’ve ever experienced. His passion and knowledge of Greece and the city of Athens was amazing. We were given several different options to choose from to make sure there was nothing we missed that we wanted to see. We had a great dinner at a recommended restaurant at the end of our tour as well. The food was excellent. If you want a private,intimate tour, this is the one.

Nasos totally saved our last day in Athens!! There was a massive storm with flooding and lightening so we thought the tour would be a bust, but Nasos made it an exciting knowledgeable and thorough tour of the big city. My wife and I learned so much and were laughing and having the best time even though it was pouring. When the Acropolis was closed due to the lightening Nasos quickly pivoted and found a ton of great places to show us and found many in door attractions for us when the rain was heavy and quickly brought us to the outdoor locations for photos when the rain would let up for 20 minutes at a time. Now whenever we think of Athens we will forever think of our great adventure with Nasos in a raging storm on our last day in Greece! What ever tour you choose make sure you ask if Nasos is available for an unforgettable experience! We will be making our way back again and will definitely be booking another tour with our good friend Nasos!! He had also offered to give us info on other locations in Greece for our next trip so now we have a local to ask advice for the best travel experiences! Thank you for everything Nasos!!

Our guide Nasos was one of the highlights of our trip! His knowledge and enthusiasm were fantastic. After pickup at our hotel, we went right to the entrance for the Acropolis which we enjoyed with the help of Rick Steve's audio tour that we downloaded. We saw so many sites and areas. The information he provided about the meanings of the steps in the changing of the guard made that experience even more special. Nasos really tailored the tour to our wishes and even stopped at his favorite shop after learning of my love of coffee to buy me a cappuccino freddo! I highly recommend this tour for an unforgettable experience in Athens.

Our guide Nasos was fantastic! He picked us up from the port, stopped at all the main spots, and recommended the best place for food and a view. We were lucky to get the tour last minute since we had one night in Athens. The tour ended with him dropping us off at the hotel. Nasos was personable, genuine and was truly passionate/knowledgeable about the history, which I loved! Highly recommend.

It was invigorating listening to our tour guide Petros talk about his City with such love and excitement.

Petros arrived at our hotel on time for pick up. Petros greeted us with a big smile that made us feel immediately comfortable and welcoming. He offered us water due to the slight heat outside. Petros energy for the city of Anthens was infections. We wanted more and more as he spkoe. Petros is very knowledgeable of this beautiful city and he's ready to give you all he's got regarding the history of Anthens.

He didn't pass by any sites without giving full details. We stopped often to get a history lesson along with getting out and taking pictures. Petros gave phenomenal details of The Acropolis, Goddess Anthena, Parthenon, Temple of Zeus, Running Man, The oldest Olive Tree and so much more.

Petros allowed us to have a bite to eat at Cafeteria Prasini Tenta which has a Gorgeous view of The Acropolis. Good drinks also lol. We reflected on all the history we just observed which was awesome. Petros made sure to end our night with the viewing of the changing of the guard at The Parliament. It was a true honor and pleasure to be shown such a beautiful historic and ancient city by a great host/tour guide Petros. Thank you Olive Sea Travel for such an amazing experience.

The private tour, Athens by Night, was more than outstanding! It can only be described as superb. Best night of our stay in Athens! Our mini van was clean, cool and comfortable. Our driver, Petros, was so very knowledgeable. He was a cautious driver and patiently solicitous regarding our many questions about Greece. Petros proved to be a delightful conversationalist as he shared background information about all points of interest and their related bits of Greek history. Based on our experience with Petros, his charming personality and his informative commentary, on our next visit to Greece, we plan to book future tours through Olive Sea Travel.

The private tour by car by Olive Sea Travel company and booked through TripAdvisor, is for 4 hours and is a great way to take in the major sights of Athens. We were picked up from our hotel at 5 pm. The driver spoke good english and gave a good intro of each location before dropping us off at each place. The tour is well spaced out and we have enough time at each location. The tour covered the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Arch of Hadrian, a visit to the Acropolis lit up in the night (entry closes at 7 pm in summer), Panathenaic stadium, Syntagma square & changing of the guards at the tomb of the unknown soldier, Palaka, the trilogy of buildings (University, Academy and the library) and Lycabettus Hill. We visited Athens in summer and it was very hot. So, this tour was ideal as it was in the evening when the temperature was moderate. In fact the best time to see Athens is after the lights are on.
