I booked a half day Athens tour during our Eastern Mediterranean cruise. We were quite a big group, 11 adults, 4 kids and an infant. The service during all the tour was excellent. As soon as we disembarked the driver was already waiting for us and ready to go. The driver had excellent knowledge of the place and gave us comprehensive information prior to use arrived at a location. Minibus was very comfortable and air conditioned. Tour was well planned to avoid major queues and to ensure that we did not miss anything.
Well done. We'll definitely use your services again if we visit Athens. I will also encourage other people to use your services.

four of us were picked up at the cruise port by Paul and our trip without the Acropolis was one of the best private tour out of any cruise port.
The Canal was interesting to see how it work for Sailboats going thru.
climbing the AcroKorinth was great for healthy person going up and up with wonderful view of nearby city. we highly recommend this optional tour if you have been in Athens before. I am not sure why people wrote that traffic was horrible, Paul said and we agree that traffic was 60% less at this time due to economy problem in Greece. Go Paul and your Athens Minibus.

Based on the many nice reviews on TripAdvisor I trusted every word said during our correspondence to book a city tour with Athens Minibus Private Day Tours for me and my wife.
The driver picked us up from our Hotel as scheduled and we started our city tour .Traffic in Athens was horrible and soon found out that a taxi was not really necessary for a city tour because most places we wanted to visit were pedestrianized , he could not but park far away and we had to walk a lot something we did not like at all. My children are very young and complained about the walking
He had confirmed that all was included in the price..
We had to pay for our entrance fee which is 12 Euro for the Acropolis and 5 Euro for the Acropolis Museum, we had no sufficient commentary. On top of that we had to pay an extra, quite high fee to hire a guide to visit the Acropolis and have someone explain facts to us . It was too expensive for the service offered. Pay attention when they tell you all is included. Nothing except a transfer was included and that was a very expensive one.

We booked these guys based on reviews from Tripadvisor and were VERY Happy! We were met at the port of Athens by Dimitris who was polite and spoke excellent English. The four of us took the full day tour including the Cape Sounion coast. The views were outstanding and his explanations of everything from geographic features to ancient Greek myths were great!
We enjoyed the tour so much that we look forward to a 1week stay in Athens and hope to use their services again!!

.Because of the limited time we had in Athens we thought to make use of the taxi services offered so much in Athens and give ourselves the luxury of a private tour . We contacted Athens Minibus Private Day Tours and set a private tour to Cape Sounion. We were very displeased because by the few stops we made on the way to Sounion( we expected to make more to take some more pictures) our driver smoked without even asking us if we were bothered .He rushed us on the way back because he had a transfer to do and drove quite fast.We hardly had any time to visit the Poseidon Temple because he insisted that the time we agreed was less than we thought we had agreed on. The money was about 250 Euro for a couple of hours. It was a whole failure and I would never recommend them.Better go safe with a tour operator.
