Hi Nikos
I am sorry this has taken me so long to write but after we got back from our trip, it was just crazy at work – lots of overtime! I also experienced quite a bout of “jet lag” it seems and could hardly stay awake at night!
Anyhow, I have been wanting to write to thank you very much for a wonderful tour on October 26. We really enjoyed Manos as our driver – he was informative, interesting and we really enjoyed his company. He had quite a time getting us to the Acropolis with the Diplomat being in town and the traffic being heavier than usual but he did it and we had a great time!
Athens
I want to thank you for your efficient and prompt replies when we were setting this up and we all felt very safe and well looked after during the whole day. The tour was really interesting and it was a great way to see the many things Athens has to offer! I will highly recommend your tours in the future and hope to come back and take another one some day!
Could you also please thank Manos again from us and wish him well?
( Brenda, Aida and Trisha)
Thanks!

Dear Nikos,
On Wednesday July 6th, 2011 my sister and I were driven around beautiful Athens by one of your company’s drivers. Our flight arrived in Athens an hour later than planned and we had already booked your tour. Although we were running late, you quickly accommodated us which not only made us feel at ease but it was greatly appreciated. Furthermore, even though we had an hour less to tour Athens (we only stayed in Athens for half a day) our very knowledgeable driver Makis, still managed to give us a full tour of Athens. In just a few hours my sister and I learnt so much about your culture, Athens of today and its history. I fully recommend your company to everyone as it gives people not only a chance to see but to learn! I also fully recommend Makis due to his expertise of Athens, his kindness and his way of making people feel very comfortable around him despite being in a different country.
We truly had an amazing experience and we thank you so much for it!
Sincerely,
Michaela & Melissa

Dear Nikos,
We were very pleased with our tour. Mr. George was an excellent driver and was able to avoid most of the traffic throughout Athens. Vassilios was incredibly knowledgeable. His English was outstanding and we all learned a great deal. He was also very pleasant and attentive to our group.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Best regards,
Donna Hall

Just a quick note to let you know how very satisfied we were with our tour.
Our guide was terrific and our driver performed miracles!!
My husband and I had taken another group to Athens about 10 years ago and we used the ship’s excursions. There was no comparison. A delightful day with a delightful guide!
I look forward to recommending your services to my clients.
Many thanks.

Nikos:
We were very pleased with our private tour of Greece. It was great to get off the ship and see our name on a placard!! Manos was an excellent guide – he tailored our tour to what we wanted to do – like take us to a local (non tourist) restaurant for lunch, plus he made sure we saw all the historic sites and filled us in with a lot of interesting information. His English was perfect – and one of the highlights was getting us to the palace in time for the changing of the guard and on to a shipyard with antique vessels right before our cruise ended (both totally unexpected and very enjoyable).
I understand that it is not typical in Athens to have the guide go to the historic sites, but it would have been more interesting to have someone there to ask questions of. Manos did a good job of showing photos of what we’d see and answering our questions when we got back. That’s the only thing I can think of that could have improved our day! Thanks – it was a great experience!! We highly endorse private tours by local operators!!
