    We just finished our half day tour with Michael and to say it was awesome, is an understatement. Michael was absolutely fantastic - he picked us up in a Mercedes van and it was immaculate. We were stocked with water and plenty of AC. Athens is about 10 degrees warmer than it should be right now so the AC came in handy. We stopped at all of the major landmarks, including the Acropolis and Parthenon, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the modern Olympic stadium, Temple of Hephaestus, and the Ancient Agora. We were given plenty of time at each destination and Michael was on standby for as soon as we were finished. He even made a quick stop at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier just in time for the Changing of the Guards. This really elevated our Athens trip and we left extremely happy, having seen almost of all of the major landmarks in Athens!

    A few tips for the first timers like us - (1) This is not a tour as you may commonly think. There is no tour guide. So once you are dropped off, you are on your own. (2) You must pay for entrance fees. I completely forgot and the tour operator was nice enough to get my tickets and I reimbursed them in cash. (3) Bring cash for tips! The minimum wage in Greece is extremely low and tips really make a difference. (4) Wear sunscreen! I am bright red as a result of a full day of exploration. And most importantly, (5) HAVE THE BEST TIME!

    We had an AMAZING time on this tour! Our guide, Kara, was fantastic. It was obvious that she was very knowledgeable and passionate about what she was teaching us. We learned so much. Not to mention, the Parthenon itself is breathtaking. We absolutely recommend going to the museum to learn more, which this tour included. We would do this tour again if we return to Athens.

    Great experience in Athens. Annie our tour guide is knowledgeable, engaged and she makes sure we’re well informed about the sites we visited. Acropolis’ history is amazing. The acropolis museum is great. We learned so much about Greece history and how it influences current western culture and democracy.
    I recommend this tour.

    We had an amazing, full day in Athens seeing all the sites courtesy of our tour guide, Alex (via Elegant Greek Tours). Alex did a great job of timing the hot spots to avoid the crowds as much as possible, and the team was in touch with us well ahead of the tour to have us pre-book tickets at the Acropolis and museum to avoid the long lines. Alex picked us up in a beautiful, super clean private van right at the port, and we began our day strolling the Ancient Agora and seeing the Temple of Hephaestus. We then went to the Acropolis, skipped the line and walked up to view the stunning Parthenon, Erechtheion, Temple of Nike and Theatre of Dionysus. It's definitely an extremely crowded tourist spot, but Alex did a great job getting us there at a good time to avoid the larger bus groups. Afterwards, Alex drove us by several other highlights including the Panathenaic Stadium (site of the first modern Olympics in 1896), Olympieion (including the HUGE Temple of Zeus), the three temples of wisdom and then an unexpected stop to witness the changing of the guard where the movements of the guards are done to mimic those of horses. We then stopped at a local restaurant for lunch where we sampled as much authentic Athenian food as our stomachs could handle! Lastly, we wrapped up the day touring the Acropolis Museum which included a very educational video about the Acropolis, several of the original pieces and sculptures from the site and even a really cool lego replica of the entire Acropolis. We were so extremely pleased with the tour and glad we were able to visit so many sites in a single day / cruise stop. Highly recommend!

    Dimon was amazing. Very knowledgeable and definitely helpful with the rest of my trip. He went out of his way for us. If I ever make it back I definitely will want him.

    Amazing views and a grand time! Katerina, our guide, was just the best. Very sweet and knowledgeable and dull of anecdotes. We were never bored while on the bus travelling to the Temple of Poseidon. Highly recommend this trip and the guide!

    We had a fantastic trip to Corinth with our driver/guide, Ruslan. This is our second tour with him and we highly recommend Ruslan and this tour. His knowledge of history and the early Christian Church as it formed in Corinth is truly impressive. He took great care of us every step of the way, right down to great dining recommendations for some great local food. Thank you!!

    Our van guide Athena and co partner were energetic happy gals. With my lack of sleep w/ jet lag made things better. The guide at the site was unbelievable-knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great at explaining and repeating things as it was a lot to take in. I was confused about tickets not included. The ad for the trip is a bit misleading. I just read the included not the exclusions. Just be prepared that the $12 entry is not included in the $118 cost of your. Not a biggie but seemed petty…. Lunch spot was fantastic as was food. Overall was a great trip-just be sure you understand what you are getting.

    Just as it was described - wonderful full day out. Well organised - excellent commentary en route. Just the right amount of time at each stop. The guide was brilliant handling a very multi lingual group

    I had an awesome experience with Dynamis Transportation during my recent trip to Athens. Their service was top-notch from start to finish. The booking process was smooth and efficient, and their customer service representatives were friendly and helpful. The drivers were professional and punctual, which made everything stress-free. The vehicles were clean, comfortable, and well-maintained, which made for a great ride. What stood out the most was their deep knowledge of Athens, which added an appreciated touch to the journey. I was able to learn more about the city and its rich history during my travels. I highly recommend this company to anyone needing transportation services in Athens. Their commitment to customer satisfaction is evident in their high-quality service.

    We very much enjoyed our tour of the Acropolis lead by our very informative and entertaining guide Apollon. If you want to get the most out of a visit to the Acropolis, a guided tour must be essential. Having Apollon guide us through the museum was also a great way to bring it all to life.

    Definitely recommended.
