A must do! - Having a personal guide to show us the city was the best thing we could've done! Our guide, George, had a modern Mercedes all electric car. It was great to be able to keep our bags with him as we just finished a cruise. Can't rate this trip high enough.

A wonderful experience - This was an outstanding tour. Our driver Costas was very accommodating and knowledgeable. His communication with us during the tour stops was on target and his photography skills made our photo “ops” memorable!

Reliable and safe - We had a great tour of Athens. We were met early by George our driver/ guide. He spoke excellent English. He gave great commentary throughout and got us to the sites at exactly the right time. There was a problem at the Parthenon in they wouldn’t accept our tickets( they had stopped virtual queues and express pass) George was able to contact the office and sort it out. For a time it was confusing but it all worked out. George gave us some free time in the old town and then took us to our hotel at the airport. It was my first experience using Viator and I’ve already booked my next tour. Great reliable service and for two female seniors it felt very safe.

Private tour, worth it! - We enjoyed this private tour. The key is to be there early like they requested to. We liked that we skipped the long lines and the crowds because we were early. We were a little bit late getting off our cruise ship. Our tour guide was rushing thru the tour, leaving us a little time to take pictures

Athens highlights and Acropolis - We recently did this shore excursion to Athens and the Acropolis. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.The Acropolis is extremely busy but fascinating and the drive around the city was great.

Awesome and accomodating - We had a last minute cancellation on our flight from Athens to Rome and had to take an earlier flight than expected. Our tour guide was amazing and picked us up early from the Cruise Port and we were able to see the most important sites before we had to leave. He was amazing and full of information. When we go back to Greece we will look him up and use him again.

Not satisfied for the high cost - Our tour guide, George, was terrific! My disappointment results from the fact that the tickets provided by the tour operator did not work to get us in to the Acropolis. We stood in line for over half an hour to get in... it turns out the "skip the line" access is only to skip the line to buy tickets, not to skip the actual line to get in, which was not worth the extra cost because we could have "skipped the line" ourselves by buying tickets online... which is what we ended up doing since the tickets they gave us did not work. It took about 40 frustrating minutes trying to figure out all out though, standing in the hot sun, which was that much less time we had to see the actual place, so we hurried through it. Loved George... but not the tour operator experience.
