Owner description: What's that? You don't speak Greek? You don't like those tour buses that keep you on a rigid time schedule? You want something flexible with a more “personal” touch to it? If you want to see the places that all visitors should see when they come to Greece and also those little “out of the way” spots that the tourists would never find on their own or in the tour books, you have come to the right place. Whether you want a tour of Athens or venture out of the city, myself or one of my trusted, experienced associates can be your personal driver and guide for a time you will not soon forget.What a comfort it is to know that someone will be there waiting for you when you arrive at the airport. If you aren't sure about where to stay, I can help you with finding a hotel and, for sure, show you the places for the best Greek food. Enjoy riding in style and comfort in an air-conditioned Mercedes car.

Bring Comfortable shoes and your Camera for all the tour times you set up in Greece with Jordan. He will take you on the best tours, fill you with valulable information about the city and make sure you have plenty to eat. Jordan did his best to show me and my husband the best time of our lives. He was an excellent driver and master of the streets. He told us great places to eat in the city when we were on our on and how to get to beaches, musuems and other attractions on our free days without him to guide us around. We really do apperciate every thing he did with us.
All of Greece that we saw was beautiful. You will learn a history lesson and the great myth stories we all love and know from high school english class. Get to see the temples and the amazing sites from a comforable car. Why be jammed on a bus with stinky sweaty people when you can ride in comfort. Take your time to see the sites you like best and enjoy and experience you will never forget. This is the only way to see Greece and Jordan Daioglou is the best guide you could ever ask for.

We spent two days in Athens early this August and hired Jordan's company to take us around. There are 4 friends who have put this business together although Jordan is one you find on internet reviews the most. You must understand these are not tour guides - they are knowledgeable taxi drivers and this, I gather, is a growing cottage industry in Athens. The tour guides seem very angry about it but, of course, they are multiples of the cost.
The first day we spent with Nikkos - a charming, soft spoken man who makes you feel like royalty - driving you in a new model airconditioned Mercedes, rushing around opening and closing doors.... Nothing was too much to ask. He took us to a tremendous gyro place on the way back from the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion (don't leave Athens without going there) - best we've ever had! Then we drove all over Athens seeing the sights, changing of the guards at the President's palace, etc.

The next day Jordan took us to the Temple of Delphi. It's a long drive and the reality of the countryside on the way up is nothing as interesting as the internet description would lead you to believe.

Jordan and Nikkos have completely opposite personalities - Nikkos is calm, soft spoken and can't do enough for you. He is knowledgeable about Greek history, I don't think to the same degree as Jordan and certainly not to the level of a trained guide. However, he had more than enough knowledge for us. Jordan seems more knowledgeable but also very pedantic. He actually gets angry if you get distracted by scenery. You feel like you are more in a school and he's the headmaster than being on vacation. If you are a Greek historian, Jordan loves the back and forth discussions and you would do well with him. If you are only looking for a general introduction to Greek history and want to feel like you're on vacation, Nikkos is the way to go without reservation.

I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your tour of Delphi. Sharing information about my country is one of my passions. Since this review was posted, I now ask my clients just how much information they would like to learn from me......do they want the details or just a quick overview. I want to make sure that everyone has a great time with me and perhaps learn a few things along the way.

Jordan is attentive, patient & unbelievably knowledgeable about all things Greek. We spent an entire day w/him touring Athens & traveling to beautiful Ancient Corinth. He designed & timed our tour so that we missed the 'crowds' @ all the 'usual' tourist attractions & arranged for an authentic Greek lunch @ a lovely taverna that overlooked the beautiful Bay of Corinth. His mercedes taxi was a new air-conditioned, non-smoking & spotlessly clean car that was a refreshing oasis for us. Jordan went above & beyond to accommodate our every desire & I recommend him unconditionally!
OH---he speaks English clearly & his wife is American!

We read the reviews of the car tours on tripadvisor and decided since we only had alimited amount of time (cruise) to try this service. What a GREAT decision! Since Jordan was already booked, he sent us a very good knowledgeable driver named Nicholas. He was at the cruise terminal when we arrived and spent the day showing us Athens. At lunch we asked to eat at a local restaurant, not only did he take us there but ordered a delicious lunch of Greek food. We had a day of unforgetable memories!

We have just enjoyed Jordan's services for three days. He met us from the cruise terminal and took us on an Argolis Tour along the Saronic Gulf; the next day we concentrated on Athens City and on the third day we visited Delphi. Jordan was always on time, knew the area like te back of his hand and had a deep love and knowlege of all that is Greek. in addition to sightseeing, he recommended places where we were able to sample fresh, local food and wine. We can honestly say that althogh we totally enjoyed our cruise the three days with Jordan were the highlight of our holiday as a whole.
