Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our guide Anna was really positive and knowledgeable about the different variety of cuisines and snacks in Athens. I only wish I had a bigger stomach!

    Absolutely amazing visit and I recommend Katherina as a guide as she has huge knowledges of the sites and monasteries and personnal interesting anecdotes that makes the trip even more interesting. She is so dedicated that she was working during easter day when we went (which is a big family celebration not to be missed in Greece). We are very grateful for her to have given us so much of her time and helped us learn so much about the site history :) I will definitely recommend to anyone going to Greece to visit this place (a Unesco site btw), it is a MUST-DO in Greece.

    After our cruise, we were picked up by our private tour guide, Catherine, and we were driven around the city in a very nice Mercedes. Because we were in Athens for just one day, we wanted to maximize our time and see all of the highlights the city has to offer. Catherine was able to perfectly time our visits to all of the sites, and we especially enjoyed our visit to the changing of the guard ceremony at Parliament. Catherine was very knowledgeable about the history of Athens, and we felt we were given a great overview of the city. After our tour, we were driven to a lovely restaurant for a traditional Greek meal, and we loved being able to see a part of the city away from the busy tourist areas. Our tour was a highlight of our trip to Europe, and we felt that we made a new friend in Catherine. We would give this tour, and Catherine, a 10/10.

    Had an excellent trip today with Ruslan to Corinth. He was very knowledgeable and thorough of the history of Corinth during the time of Paul. He was very friendly and kind. We had great conversation and many laughs. Thanks Ruslan for a great day!

    We are definitely returning to Athens. Had only one day in this city & fortunate to have Konstantinos as our guide. Points of interests ranged from historic to trivia. Learned so much in our five hours with this intelligent, kind and fun man. We are taking home a dose of love Konstantinos has for Athens, his Country and its people. Many thanks. FANTASTIC TOUR!

    We were a couple and went to Santorini for 3 nights then Athens for 2 nights. Santorini we stayed at the Atlantis in Fira (the best place to stay and mid-city on the water and tourist area) close to everything and at least 15 restaurants walkable in 5 minutes. Hotel is 3.5-4 stars with great Caldera view in a caldera view room. Best hotel view ever, and Best complimentary hotel breakfast in Santorini of Greek and American and continental specialties. For our first dinner we went to Naoussa, which was 1 minute walk from hotel and awesome traditional Greek cuisine. At 7pm-8pm the owner came out and threw plates and had everyone yelling OPA! Great non-quiet atmosphere but a fun welcoming intro to GREECE!. We also went to Ouzeqi restaurant twice, a 4 minute walk from hotel and had awesome innovative seafood and huge portions. We also took a caldera view sunset cruise which was switched on us for approaching bad weather to a daytime cruise. Switched the boat as well to a luxury catamaran. If you don't like baby roller coasters do not do this cruise. But this was awesome of excellent BBQ lunch cooked on board and unlimited wine. The crew was great, accommodating also even for a 10 year old child on board. They entertained the child while her traveling companions were seasick. Nobody else was seasick, not even ME. ... We walked cobblestone streets like crazy. Eventually flew to Athens and had enough time there to enjoy an Athens foodie walking tour with Get Your Guide's tour guide Voula. What a lovely lady guide and very knowledgeable. Stayed at the Acroplis Ami "Boutique hotel, a 2.5-3 star basic hotel experience. tiny room and no in-room coffee maker. But a very good hotel breakfast. The top floor 180 view breakfast/bar faced the Acropolis for awesome evening and day views. The bartender Jiannis was a lovely bonus and even brought his 60's music laptop to the bar for my (and everyone's listening pleasure). The man served Ouzo on ice with a sidekick of glass of water. WWWowww! .... A flight issue: The only annoying thing was the flight from Frankfurt Germany to Santorini: Discover Airlines for 2.7 hours and the only nonstop airline. Even coffee and Coke (soft drinks) were at a cost of 7,50Euros for the 2 items. That's right folks, what a rip-off. Never hears of an airline charging for a stinking soft drink or coffee. But, highly recommend Santorini as a destination worth seeing. Jill in Los Angeles CA

    Again, Nick has had me fall in love with Greece and it’s people in a way I never could have expected. His giddiness for the tour is inspiring and wholesome. Regarding the company itself, I have a couple of things to say.

    • There was 2 groups with us when and believed it a was private tour. Either all of us read the description to the tour wrong or there is something up here. You decide.

    • For a 6 hour tour this is too much for a driver. There is no way to guarantee you can get Aeropagus Hill in 20 minutes. Nick somehow got it all done for us and bless his heart for that.

    If it wasn’t for Nick and having a great group of fellow Christians (even if we weren’t expecting it) this would have been frustrating experience. As result my 5 stars goes to our driver.

    The food was delicious, 3 restaurants choice is the best. We had a small hike up to the hill. It was ok. The view worth it. Many beautiful pictures, nice, polite with knowledge of history and Greek cuisine guide. Highly recommended ❤️🌷❤️❤️. Yes, we could name it very unique and local too. Not only the best food tasting but also diving into the myth of Greece

    Seeing the excellent reviews, I had opted for this private day trip to Delphi. Aris contacted me the day before and enquired if I had made arrangements for the tickets to the Delphi Museum + Archaeological site and I hadn't. He offered to buy them on our behalf and send the tickets to us by Whatsapp. I liked that service and advance planning.

    Nick was there before 7AM outside our condo and we were surprised by how young he looked and was. However, he was very knowledgeable about the history and what to expect as well as about world affairs. We enjoyed talking to him all thru the 2.5 hrs drive to Delphi. The car was clean and in great condition and Nick's driving is excellent and we never felt uncomfortable anytime. We were asleep in the car on the way back after an excellent lunch and wines at a local authentic greek restaurant in Delphi. We hadn't opted for the lunch inclusive pricing, but when Nick understood our interest in local cuisine, he brought us to the same restaurant where they host the lunch inclusive option. And I must say that that was the best greek food and wine experience in Greece so far. The waiter, Theodore was excellent in advising us on the food as well as selecting the wines.

    We enjoyed the visit to Delphi and visiting the museum before walking to the archaeological site. It is such a beautiful place that it would be a shame to come to Athens and not visit it.

    I highly recommend this outfit!

    The lake was amazing and the temple with the sea beautiful. Plus the driver was very helpful. Perfect if you haven't a car.

    This was a wonderful opportunity to get out of the city and enjoy a beautiful drive down the coast. Our driver, Giorgos, spoke excellent English and shared a lot of interesting information during the drive. The car was clean and very comfortable. We had a relaxing dinner at a casual open air restaurant right on the beach with a beautiful view of the temple from our table.
