Our driver Nikos was so accommodating with everything, provided us with many options at each site and left timing up to us. The best was we were having a late lunch with traffic beginning to build for the 2 hour ride to Athens and we asked Nikos how much time we can have for a quick meal - his reply “this is your lunch, sit down, enjoy, relax, and eat. I will be here when you are done!” By the way all of the sites were beautiful and well worth the full day.

Worth taking this private tour. Our guide Niko was very accommodating, knowledgeable and right on time. His driving was excellent, when traveling with family that’s always important. The history and culture you can see in a day trip is unbelievable.

Tholes was our driver for the day. Overall the day was amazing and exceeding our expectations! We saw all the major points of interest from Corinth Canal to Epidaures. Having lunch by the pier in Nefplio was probably the most memorable experience I’ve had with my significant other. Tholes was very accommodating and flexible. He was always providing us with water. I would highly recommend this tour!

Nikos was our official guide and did an amazing job not only driving and giving us pertinent detailed information about the sites we were going to tour, but also had such a caring and compassionate personality, very patient and sensitive to the needs of each guest. We also had the added bonus of having Tolis also join the trip as a trainee. He did not interfere, but rather added to the conversations and questions we had, giving us valuable input from his own perspective. He is ready to be out on his own independently giving exceptional tours. Nikos is so professional in his driving proficiency but even more so in hie engaging personality and sharing such intuitive information about the city and culture along the way. He was is such a confident, knowledgeable, and patient driver and while not a licensed guide to give us detailed tours of the sites and museums, he gave us valuable tips and things to pay particular attention to in each segment of our trip. He didn’t not rush our group, even though we got off schedule due to the immense amount of information and wonder we were trying to absorb. This tour offers so much for both adults and children. It is the right length, however is a very full day due to the amount of driving from site to site involved. No part is boring or tedious and if members of your group want to spend more or less time at a particular location, or even at lunch, then Nicols is very accommodating. For some younger travelers, there is a way to do thing faster and Nicols always have cold refreshing water waiting when his customer’s hop back on board for the next part of the journey. He is proactively and alert, and very conscientious about how he carries himself. The van was comfortable for 6 customers,, adults and almost to full teen sizes in our group. This is an ideal company for an amazing adventure exploring historical and very picturesque areas outside of Athens. I truly believe that Nicols made a difference above and beyond other companies out there who may offer similar tours, due to his skills, personalities, and ability to get a feel for the type of pace and food selections that his guest may be seeking. The resturant he recommended and took us to for lunch was a fabulous pick and one of the most memorable food and ambiance experience of our entire vacation. The resturant had excellent food and service with a variety of selections for several adults and children in our group. Our family strongly recommends this company! They would be excellent for a family, a couple, a bunch of friends, or even a corporate team wanting to do a memory making excursion together! We may have been quite tired when they smoothly got us back to our hotel door, but we were rejuvenated by the next morning with such exciting details to reflect upon, pictures and stories to share with extended family and friends, as well as lifelong memories to cherish. We are grateful for the fabulous time we had and for them taking such good care of us.
