Full description
Arriving in a new city can be a stressful experience, but with this transfer from Athens International Airport at Spata to centrally located hotels in downtown Athens, you can wave goodbye to any anxieties. The service runs every 2 hours from early in the morning to the evening, covering transfers to central Athens hotels, and the return trip to the airport. It is cheaper than any other door-to-door mode of transport in the city, such as flagging a cab, and much less hassle than public transport. Even if your flight is delayed, uniformed staff will greet you at the airport at well-placed information desks inside the Arrival Lounge. They will assist you with your luggage and help you board the comfortable shuttle bus, negating the need to wait outside at the bus stop. Once on board, the shuttle bus travels non-stop to central Athens and drops you off at your hotel door. Book the return journey and the bus will collect you from your hotel lobby for the drive back to Spata Airport, a distance of approximately 21 miles (34 kilometers).

My driver was Elvis! He was super sweet! While driving he pointed out sites like the university, the the Garden, the US embassy and where the guards change shifts etc... He gave me great advice on where to go for a traditional Greek experience. He also gave advice on not so expensive options for food and travel and he gave me safety tips for travel! I went to one of the restaurants he suggested and it was amazing! Will definitely book for my return to the airport! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND FOR EVERYONE!!! Ask for ELVIS!

The driver was well in time and waiting at a prominent location inside the airport with a board which had my name on it which was very convenient as I did not have to go outside the airport and look among hundred other boards you see at every arrival scene.

Punctual, efficient & service with a smile!

Guide was right outside the exit gate after I collected my luggage. My name was clearly visible in capitals on a big Ipad. Smiling and English speaking lass then led me to the van where the driver took my luggage and loaded it inside. Mine was the only booking so didn’t have to wait for other passengers to arrive thus we left within minutes of my arrival. Driver was a charming fellow with excellent English. Really pleasant experience and great value.
