Our family (3 kids ages 7,9,12 + 2 adults) had a perfect experience with Private Greece Tours. They took us from Athens to Delphi and toured Meteora and then the Athens airport. George was the most friendly, accommodating and wonderful driver, and everything was super smooth. The van was super nice, clean and safe, and George was above and beyond. Would use them again in a second.

We did a shorter version of the Athens shore excursion. Nikos was very responsive with suggestions and help in planning this. Couldn't have made it easier. Dominic our driver/guide was very informative and the vehicle was top notch. Would not hesitate to use them again.

My husband and I booked a 2.5 day customized tour. We were lucky to have George with us for the day Trip to Meteora and the next day to Sounion. George is professional, knowledgeable, and super fun to talk to.

His English is phenomenal, and he is very intelligent. We talked with him for the whole ~9 hours of drive (round trip and transit in Meteora). We loved the conversation with him so much that we didn't nap even though we were heavily jet lagged.

George was very accommodating the whole time. When he picked us up early in the morning, he added a stop for us to get some delicious breakfast pies from a local bakery. We also decided to add an activity (paragliding) to our agenda after doing some research in the car. Thanks to George, not only did he extend his hours with us for free, he also called the local company in Meteora to book the appointment for us in Greek.

The car he drove was Mercedes S class. It was luxury, clean and comfortable. The car was washed daily even with the same customers.

It was rare to be able to connect with someone like an old friend, but we did it with George. Thank you for the amazing experience in Greece! We hope to see you again!

He did raise the bar for quite a bit that we felt disappointed at our other private tour in other countries.

For context, I was in a serious car accident days prior to flight from US to Athens and arrived with cracked ribs, herniated discs, sprained wrist, broken thumb, etc. I normally plan my trips ahead of time but even before the accident that had me hospitalized, I was just going to place this trip by ear.

Knowing that I was not going to be able to walk or exert as much physicality, I reached out to a few tour companies explaining my needs and what I was looking for. While other tour companies took a long time to respond, Nikos responded to me very quickly…and on a weekend.

There were specific things I wanted to see and do, so together, based on both my desires and limitations, we came up with a half day tour of Athens and the 5-hour tour of Corinth, about an hour outside of Athens proper.

Spyros picked me up at my rented apartment on two different days. Each time, the itinerary decided on was based on a combination of his suggestions and my “must do’s.” This is a factor everyone should consider when choosing a tour company…flexibility.

I was able to see and do so much more because of Spyros’s assistance. I expect a tour guide to be knowledgeable, and he was. But here are the things that made Spyros stand out as exceptional:
-He has a wonderful sense of humor.
-It is obvious he loves what he does and is passionate about sharing one-of-a-kind experiences.
-He is compassionate and works with each party on a personal level (i.e., the “schedule” is not rigid).
-He is an excellent driver (VERY important for me since I hadn’t been in a car except to drive from the hospital straight to the airport on my way to Athens and was worried about feeling unsafe in any vehicle).
-He knows Athens inside and out and took me to some easy-to-get to places for some specific needs I had…like buying an extra piece of luggage to check because I bought entirely too much!
-His English is very good.
-Maybe not important to others, but very much so for me, was that a) I was a single female traveler and felt 100 percent comfortable and safe with Spyros, and b) I am fiercely independent and don't want to feel like an invalid - he was perfectly skilled at making sure I knew he was there to help me if I wanted or needed it, but was very intuitive that my preference was encouragement, not “glass half empty.”

I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Personally, when I return (and I will!), I will only use them and will always request Spyros.

The personal attention from our drivers each day (first day with Spyros and second day with Makis) made these tours of Athens and the surrounding areas a highlight of our vacation!

Our group of 10 took this tour October 22, 2022. We took only one tour in Athens before our cruise and we are so pleased that we chose Private Greece Tours to do it with. Our tour guide was George and he is the BEST! There was not even a tour guide on any of the excursions we took on our cruise that compares with him. Take it from all 10 of us and use this company to book your next tour. You will not regret it. Thank you Nikos!

WOW! I can recommend this company with NO hesitation. We (2 couples) booked a custom 6-day tour that included pickup at Athens airport, Meteora, Delphi, Nafplio and drop off at Port Cheli Ferry. We made all arrangements through emails with Nikos and his gentle guidance helped us to land on the perfect trip for us. He was very responsive and professional and not pushy at all!
Our driver, Jimmy (Demetri) possessed a wealth of knowledge about Greece: history, economic situation, religion, food and drink. We felt completely safe with Jimmy at the wheel. He was a courteous and patient driver. He kept us hydrated with waters and was always willing to stop for photo ops. We are very grateful that Jimmy took us to sites beyond those we requested. He knew so many great spots that we were unaware of. He also arranged dinner reservations for us at great local spots that were our favorites of the entire trip (we were in Greece for 15 days total). Regarding recommended hotels: Iradnos (Meteora) and Hotel Antonio Gambello (Nafplio) were clean, charming, convenient and inexpensive! Hotel Nidimos was not nearly as clean or charming but it was fine for our one-night stay.
Overall, I highly recommend Private Greece Tours and if you can book Jimmy, do so! He was great!!

We had a phenomenal, care-free time with our world-class driver and guide Spiros on a four-day private tour. Starting and ending in Athens, we toured Corinth, Mycenae, Nafplion, Olympia, Delphi, and Meteora. Booking was easy as Nikos is highly responsive to answer questions and confirm the tour, including reserving hotels of your choice. The tour itself is great as you are visiting a bucket list of world-class sites spanning thousands of years of Greek history.
Spiros was highly knowledgeable of each destination, providing the history and importance while we were en route. He furthermore accommodated our every request, gave meticulous descriptions of our daily plans, provided meal and drink suggestions including dietary restrictions, translated where needed, took us off the beaten path a few times to some gems, and rolled with the punches when we tweaked the itinerary. His great sense of humor and genuine personality made our long stretches together in the car a treat. A memorable trip befitting royalty!

This site is on flat location with only a few stairs (not many around the site) I would recommend having a Private Guide to explain the significance of site of the first Olympics and it's participants. Many old marble and stone remains of early buildings and sporting fields and the main arena.
