One of the high points of our greek trip. Sotirios picked us up at our meeting point on time, he was polite, considerate and informative, taking the time to point out the highlights along our coastal tour. Very easy company and didn't feel rushed. The transport was exceptional, much higher than our expectations. Arrived at the temple at sunset and had the time to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area.

Booking went smoothly. Hotel pickup was on time. “Teddy” our guide was engaging, fun, and knows his Greece history. Van was clean and comfortable. Small group was great and manageable. The trip was quick and very pretty. The site was amazing. “Teddy” took this from a four star tour to a five star. Well worth the money and a must see on your Athens visit.
