I had pre-arranged a transfer from our cruise ship to our hotel plus a tour of the Peloponnese region of Greece with Spiros of Spiros Taxi Service, having used him previously, and as before, we were very pleased. One nice thing about Spiros is if he is not available for the transfer and/or tour, he has several associates to whom he can turn to provide the equivalent service. This trip Spiros was out of town so Stelios picked us up. Stelios is extremely pleasant, professional, personable, and completely fluent in English, and it was a pleasure to spend a day with him. He was waiting for us at the agreed upon time to meet, and helped us quickly to his new, very clean taxi. On our way out of town, he stopped to pick up cold water for us and then he showed us sites in the Peloponnese including the Corinth Canal, Ancient Corinth and its Acropolis, Mycennes including its Acropolis, and Agammenon’s Tomb, plus more. Along the way Stelios provided a discussion of Greece’s geography, history and politics, and answered all of our questions. Overall a great value and a wonderful experience.

Spiros met us at the ferry and finessed retrieving ample luggage from a chaotic scene. We spent 2 1/2 days with him, being shown highlights of Athens and driving between wondrous ancient sights to be visited in Peloponisos. He was well-informed, courteous, dependable, and very good company! We felt fortunate to have found him and highly recommend him.

My husband & I booked two trips with Spiros- one to Delphi, and the other to the Peloponnese. We were supposed to have Spiros as our driver to Delphi, but a colleague of his named George picked us up instead (Spiros was having car problems, and he called George on our way to Delphi to tell me this himself). George was great--friendly, professional, and funny. The only bad things (which really weren't very bad) were that he drove really fast, there was a little bit of a language barrier, and he didn't give us too much information on the sights we were seeing. However, the Delphi trip was still excellent! We had plenty of time to see the sights, eat lunch, and stop at the restrooms.

For the Peloponesse tour, Spiros was 1/2 hr. late picking us up as a result of a miscommunication on our pick-up point. Nobody's fault- just a simple miscommunication. Spiros was a more cautious driver than George and offered far more knowledge and even loaned us a guide book. He was very professional and his English is excellent. The only thing that was disappointing is that we only got 35 minutes to see Palamidi Castle, which is not nearly enough time. I'm not sure if this small amount of time was because we got a late start, or if it was because there was so much to see on this tour and Spiros wanted to make sure we saw it all. He did keep us on a fairly strict time limit for each site, so be prepared not too dawdle too much.

Also, I'm a vegetarian and my husband is a vegan, and both George & Spiros were extremely helpful in making sure that we were able to find appropriate food. Everything we ate was delicious and affordable, and we appreciated this very much.

Please note that the entrance fees to the sites are NOT included in the tour price, and that these places do not take credit or debit cards. Be sure to bring enough cash to get in everywhere.

I highly recommend Spiros Taxi Service. Our trip to Greece would not have been nearly as enjoyable had we not booked these tours. They are worth the money and you will not be let down!

Spiros took my teenage son and I on 2 full day trips. He picked us up at the airport and when he realized we hadn't had breakfast, stopped to get us a treat before we made our first stop! Spiros was knowledgable and professional! We enjoyed our time with him and appreciated all of the info he provided. We wouldn't have been able to see as much as we did in 2 days without him. He gave us the right amount of time at each stop and told us exactly what to do and where to go. We had a fabulous time!

We knew our time inAthens would be limited since it was a 10 hour cruise ship stop, so to maximize our time we booked with Spiros Taxi. I do not like the group tours offered by cruise ships, and usually the price difference for a private tour isn't much, and is often cheaper than booking through the cruise line.Our driver and guide for the day was a fellow named Ticas. He was very knowledgeable, funny, considerate, and gave us a nicely paced tour of all the major attractions, and the place he recommended for lunch turned out to be one of the best meals of our entire 18 day trip. If you are going to Athens, and need a driver and guide, call Spiros Taxi.
