    Our excursion to Corinth and Athens was fantastic. Our driver Odysseus was exceptional. The knowledge of Athens and Corinth was phenomenal. We learned so much from him while driving to our tour sights!!!! Odysseus even stopped and let me go into a Starbucks in Athens (which was not apart of the tour. But he did so because we told him Starbucks was my favorite). All in all, Odysseus went above and beyond to ensure our experience was enjoyable and memorable! This Tour and our tour guide was AMAZING!!!!!

Odisseas was an exceptionally, well versed guide. His professionalism from pick-up to drop-off was consistent, & I felt safe and at ease under his care. He was charming and hilarious with an ability to answer questions seamlessly while transitioning to new facts at each location. He was a true gem and I'd suggest his services to any incoming tourist. It was the highlight of my short visit. I was able to combine local tradition with an ancient Greek mythology lesson in one setting. Just perfect!

excellent way to know in an efficient and comfortable way the different tourist places of the city; Carlos was a very friendly guide and knows the best spots to take the best photo. His Spanish is perfect for those Latinos who are eager to hear his language so far from home.

Great! The electric bike tour allows you to see as much as possible in one morning. Sophie was a great guide and introduced us to all the main places of interest in Athens. And the breaks to taste loukoumades and souvlaki were a plus

Everything was amazing! Nice guide , interesting excursion. If u like street art you will like this!

Excellent visit, great discovery of Athens, very friendly guide
