    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!

    Loved this 2 hour tour … our guide, Dimas, was wonderful. He kept us moving and providing just the right amount of information at the right time AND he was most interesting and with a fun sense of humor.

    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!

    The guides, George and Dimitris are friendly and welcoming! They are full with the knowledge and are not stingy to share with all of us. It is a pleasant trip!

    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.

    Nick our guide was excellent, gave great insights into the ministry of Apostle Paul. It was wonderful and blessed to walk the way, see the areas where Paul preached and stayed. Nick was an extremely kind gentleman especially that I travelled with my kids and he took extra care of my little one. His cartoony way of talking like Donald
    Duck was so entertaining for my kids. Thank you Nick for the wonderful trip with you.

    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!!

    This was absolutely the right choice for us. We were looking for a private driver to take us to Delphi — and LS Tours delivered. Big shout out to George Remoundos for being not only an awesome driver, but also just a pleasant person – and accommodating. He was easy-going and didn’t make us feel at all rushed. I appreciated that. I also really appreciated how proud he was of his home and country. That’s always a big plus to my wife and I.

    I recommend this tour. You’ll be comfortable and taken care of. And holy wow the views are stunning. Plus, the lunch spot in the town of Delphi was incredible — the food and the view out the back patio.

    Seeing the excellent reviews, I had opted for this private day trip to Delphi. Aris contacted me the day before and enquired if I had made arrangements for the tickets to the Delphi Museum + Archaeological site and I hadn't. He offered to buy them on our behalf and send the tickets to us by Whatsapp. I liked that service and advance planning.

    Nick was there before 7AM outside our condo and we were surprised by how young he looked and was. However, he was very knowledgeable about the history and what to expect as well as about world affairs. We enjoyed talking to him all thru the 2.5 hrs drive to Delphi. The car was clean and in great condition and Nick's driving is excellent and we never felt uncomfortable anytime. We were asleep in the car on the way back after an excellent lunch and wines at a local authentic greek restaurant in Delphi. We hadn't opted for the lunch inclusive pricing, but when Nick understood our interest in local cuisine, he brought us to the same restaurant where they host the lunch inclusive option. And I must say that that was the best greek food and wine experience in Greece so far. The waiter, Theodore was excellent in advising us on the food as well as selecting the wines.

    We enjoyed the visit to Delphi and visiting the museum before walking to the archaeological site. It is such a beautiful place that it would be a shame to come to Athens and not visit it.

    I highly recommend this outfit!

    Nikolas was absolutely brilliant!!! I cannot recommend him enough! He was so knowledgeable about the area and the history. He was super friendly AND my son liked him as much as I did! He took us on a food tour of places that we never would have found on our own. One highlight was visiting Nina at the distillery. She was awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable! And the lunch we had was superb! I am so glad we booked this tour with him! I recommend you do the same! You won’t regret it!!!

    Our guide, Fotis was excellent as he was very personable and very informative. The tour was excellent as we were able to see a lot outside of Athens in a very short time and thus have a better appreciation of the diversity of Greece’s history.

    Our local guide knew the history and geography in-depth and created a journey for us that brought the stories and the culture of the time to life. Our tour focused on the journey of St. Paul and our group had varying experience and interest in religion -- all equally enjoyed it. The guide made sure to tailor the experience for us. We had a lovely meal at a family-run restaurant a few yards from one of the major sites of the old city and the museum. A set of photos, notes regarding what we had seen, and related biblical quotes were provided after the tour. This meant that we could focus on exploring, knowing that we would have photos afterwards. Of the five tours I have taken in Greece this was the best and I would take it again.
