Our driver Leonardo was an amazing guide. He tailored the schedule for the sites we wanted to see the most in order to give us enough time to enjoy them. His vehicle was clean and even provided bottled water for us upon arrival. The summer months are filled with tourist and are very hot however he made this experience better than we had expected. I highly recommend this activity for anyone visiting the city. Thank you again Leonardo!

We only had one day in Athens and we wanted to see main sites before we moved on to other islands. Our lovely guide George took us to main places around the city. He was very accommodating to our needs and allowed us to take or time in each section of the tour. We had a lovely dinner at the end. Thank you for wonderful experience!

Very Nice Day in Athens

Dimitri our driver was excellent. He took our 7 family members to the Acropolis and the Museum as well as other locations of interest around the city. We never felt rushed and he was very charming and we were able to ask him questions about the City and the people. We asked him about a place for dinner so he suggested an area on the waterfront near our cruise ship which had had a number of authentic, family owned restaurants. Thanks to him we had a very pleasant, interesting day in Athens.

What an amazing day in Athens. We paid for 4 hours however our driver gave us an extra two hours free of charge although we gave her a really good tip :. She took us to all of the high lights of Athens as well as those that you would not normally see such as the changing of the guard. She recommended a place for authentic food which as also outstanding. I cannot say enough about our experience with our driver as well as the company.

Best Tour EVER!!!!! Sarafin was prompt and was so thorough. I was not feeling well and he even offered to re-schedule. I am so glad that I did not re-schedule. We enjoyed the best day imaginable in Athens. The vehicle was very nice mercedes benz I thinkI can't imagine that going on the official tours would be better than this. We started our day at the Acropolis. Before we got out of the car Sarafin prepared us with information on exactly where to go and gave us the history behind what we would see here. Every instruction provided was perfect. We saw every major tourist attraction and more. What we really loved was how he was able to give us the Greek citizen perspective on everything. The personal touches like having cold water and snacks for us, taking us to off the beaten path sights, etc was so amazing. He advised on how much a taxi ride back to our hotel should be from the major shopping district and all of his advise was so helpful. He even gave us advise on the best place to have dinner overlooking the acropolis at night.This was a private tour at its best. If you go to Athens, be sure to check out Sarafin.

We didn't have much time but wanted to see as much as we could of Athens. This was the perfect way! We were picked up after breakfast with our bags and went straight to the Acropolis then Temple of Olympian Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium, Parthenon and the Changing of the Guard. Our guide was amazing and let us pick up 2 friends who we didn't know were in Athens until the time for the rest of our time. We went to Mount Lycabettus and then had some lunch in town. Next she took us to the airport. A great half day tour and delivered right to where we needed to be. No hassle, great information if we wanted it, cold drinks and a smiling face : Thank you!
