Nikos Loukas and "Tom", our Great Greek American driver, provided a day in Athens that was Τρομερό! (Awesome!) Tom gave us many stories of Greece--modern and ancient which recalled all the mythology we learned in school. The day was packed from driving to Corinth--visiting the Acropolis and Parthenon, the city of Athens and so many important and not so important but beautiful sites. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. If you are looking for a terrific service that will customize your time in Athens, email Nikos at Private Greece Tours and request Tom for your driver! Oompah!

We used Private Greece Tours for a city tour of Athens while on a stop on our cruise. Nikos was very easy to deal with while preparing four our trip. We were four ladies traveling together on the cruise and I was a little scared about arranging this all over the internet. I was given very easy directions on how to meet our driver, Alex. Everything was great. Alex was waiting for us when we got off of the boat. He was excellent. We had a wonderful day seeing Athens. I would recommend this company for your touring needs.

We used Private Greece Tours on our recent cruise in the Med. We liaised with Nikos prior to the cruise and he was so helpful.

We had 12 on our tour which made it very very affordable and had a full days tour for a fraction of the cost of the ships tours.

Frank was our driver and he was excellent. Getting us to the places before the crowds hit and took us to some great viewing places of Athens which the larger tour buses cannot get to. Water was provided on the bus and he also gave everyone some nice postcards of Athens to take home. Tours are very custom and you can do and see whatever you wish.

Would definately use again and recommend to anyone to use.

We were in Athens on the national holiday May 1 this month when the major tourist sites were closed. So at the last moment we looked for a private tour and found Nikos' company Private Greece Tours. Nikos was incredibly helpful and our driver, Manos, arrived on time the next day.

We had a delightful drive down the coast to Temple of Poseidon at Souinon with stops along the way. Manos provided great company, great service and a ton of interesing history and information.

Definitely a thumbs up to Nikos and Manos!!!

My husband and I are cruise travel agents and hosted a small group; 8 from Utah and 8 from California. It was a seven day Eastern Mediterranean Cruise out of Rome. We arrived in Rome a few days early. Having been in Rome as port city on a previous cruise, we wanted to see more and go up to Florence as well. We had arranged for a private tour for Utah half of the group for both Rome and Florence. However, neither of the tours were as professionally performed and executed as Nikos did from Private Greece Tours on our stop to Athens. Nikos and I shared a few emails back and forth prior to the cruise so he knew what we were looking for. He was very thorough with his instructions on how to find him at the pier as there are two terminals in Athens and no one know where the ship will be until the morning it arrives. We found him easily and were off. His knowledge of the city and it's history made me wonder if he was a teacher. I was going to ask but forgot. He understood and spoke English very well and was very friendly and professional. The Museum I had expressed an interest in while emailing had not begun their Summer hours as expected so he suggested some alternative itineraries to be able to see it and then offered his personal suggestion which didn't include the museum at all. He STRESSED it was our tour and could choose anything we wanted and he would be glad to accomidate us. Having experienced a very hectic and almost too fase-paced tour of Rome and the Vatican, we were all in agreement and opted for Nikos' personal recommendation and were so pleased with the tour that it ended up being the favorite tour of the whole cruise! I enjoyed it so much that I would love to take a land based vacation to Athens and have Nikos take us out to out-lying areas. Thank you "Private Greece Tours" and hope to see you again sometime.
