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.

    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.

    This was a great day at sea!
    FOOD: there was coffee and cake and juice. There was a very nice lunch. There was not a mid morning snack or evening snack.
    BOAT: lovely sailboat (minus sails). Ample shade and sun options. Bathrooms sufficient.
    PORTS: Docked at two islands, and a third stop for swimming and where lunch was served, all very pretty.
    CREW: very friendly, professional, and spoke multiple languages.
    TRANSPORT: pick up/drop off a few blocks from my bnb, easy to locate, van was clean.
    Definitely recommend this tour; well worth the money, and a great day at sea!

    Great trip. Picked us up on time and we had only 5 passengers in a roomy mini van.
    Delphi is a must see. We saw many other things, hot springs, museum, lunch, etc..
    My only complaint is it’s a long day. 12 hours.

    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.

    My son and I really like this trip - because of Alexia in good part. She’s a super nice hostess, in addition of knowing her stuff, having a historian background! So I do recommend this trip, which is very reasonably priced, given the money, time and effort that it would take for anyone to organize and reach these places on their own. Alexia also gives good advice on restaurants when it’s time to eat in Nafplio.

    Amazing informative guide who gave us the back history of Delphi during the journey. We were given enough time at Delphi Museum to explore while he continued to point out the highlights. I struggle with stairs but I took my time and enjoyed the beautiful scenery with the ruins.
    I appreciated the audio enhancement because I could still hear our guide even if I was looking elsewhere.
    The two stops and lunch was nice. Extremely efficient and clean.
    Thank you for a fantastic day.

    The guide was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Great experience and well worth the 2.5 hour drive. The group was small making the trip that much better.

    This was a wonderful day trip from Athens. There was a mix up at the beginning with buses but that was fixed. It was a lot of fun and our guide was knowledgeable about the area. The lunch was delicious. A little advice: ladies should be in dresses below the knee and shoulders covered. Wear good walking shoes. The first monastery we went to had over 350 steps. It’s costs 3 euro per person per monastery and they only take cash.

    The experience was positive from the start. Transportation from the hotel was on time in a comfortable vehicle. We purchased the VIP tickets which I would recommend. We went to the front of the line upon arrival at the boat and escorted to the our own booth in the lounge.

    The staff was very attentive and was able to accommodate my wife's dietary restrictions with both meals served on board. Cocktails are not included but were excellently prepared and reasonably priced.

    We did the walking tour on Hydra. The guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the island and pointed out the thing of interest. The tour is short, about an hour, a few minutes available to see the shops near the port, then back to the port.

    Next stop was Poros, which was really short at about half an hour to 40 minutes available. This was enough time to walk to the end of the shopping area then back to the port. I would have been fine skipping Poros and adding time to the Hydra or Aegina ports.

    Aegina was the last and longest stop where we took the Panoramic tour. The tour advertises 5 stops, but three of these were 2 minutes stops with no opportunity to get off the bus. You had to take pictures through the windows which weren't very clean for such photos. The is a stop at a monastery which was very nice. The second stop is when you get off the bus in the shopping area near the port. We were provided a sampling of the seafood, then escorted to a nearby pistachio store to buy to some very tasty pistachio ice cream, butter, etc.
