This was my first trip to Athens and I wanted to make sure I saw all the key highlights. I was traveling with a friend. This tour was fantastic. It provided a great opportunity to see many popular and meaningful historical sites and locations. The timeline of the tour was laid out perfectly. At each site visit, we were not competing with an abundance of other tourists. Our guide and driver, George, was absolutely fantastic We actually had George as our guide on a tour the day before. We were very happy to spend a second day with George. We were very impressed with George's knowledge of Athenian and Greek history. In addition, George was very kind and thoughtful. He worked diligently to ensure we saw the sites, understood the site and its history, and was very flexible. I would absolutely recommend this tour.


We took a tour of 1 day tour of Full Day Athens, Corinthos Canal & Ancient Corinthos Tour in June 2019 and we had the best time. John's driver very friendly and considerate. His knowledge of the sites, highlighting the aspects to be visited were very helpful to ensure we did not miss any of the high lights. He had cold water ready when we needed it, towels for the kids when we came off the beach etc. We had a great time! 10/10 and we will definitely call John for guidance next time we plan to visit Greece. This is obviously a long overdue review.


John was very knowledgeable and explained many items on our way there. Amazing canal and beautiful countryside. We had a great time.


We first met John when my niece Hélène and I visited Athens in September 2013 and based on the various excellent reviews on his services, asked him to organize our transfers from/to airport and private tours to Sounion, Athens and Corinth, which he did perfectly, including renting a wheelchair for me (as I’m a person with restricted mobility) and arranging for my trip up to the Acropolis via the archeologists’ lift, which enabled me to visit the Parthenon again. So when we returned to Greece 7 years later in Sept./Oct. 2020, this time to Agi Theodori, a small village some 60 km from Athens, we immediately contacted John again to take care of the wheelchair rental, transfers to/from our villa and a private tour to Old Corinth. John himself waited for us at the Venizelos airport, as smiling and full of life as ever, though we were a few hours late due to a serious technical problem on our Zurich/Athens flights. Being already retained by a big football star, he arranged the tour in Corinth with another delightful and helpful driver, Alexander and again we had a lovely day. On the transfer back to the airport we again stopped at the Pende Phi, a fantastic Greek family restaurant he had introduced us to back in 2013 and we had a marvelous lunch before flying back. John is really a jack of all trades and is able to arrange a lot of things for you, point things you would have missed otherwise, give you tips of what to do/where to eat and always ready to help and solve problems. So we certainly hope we’ll meet again when we’ll visit his beautiful country again. Thank you for everything, John! Sylvie & Hélène, 74000 Annecy /France
