What people are saying about Hellenic Parliament

It was my first stay in Athens, and this private tour was a fantastic way to discover the landmarks of this city. Dimitris was the perfect host, very attentive and knowledgeable. He took me comfortably from one destination to the next in his car and told me about their history and importance. The day ended with a meal in a wonderful authentic restaurant, far from the tourist areas, with delicious home-cooked food. What I particularly liked: Even though we looked at a lot, I never felt rushed or overwhelmed. Personal requests (e.g. preferences on where to go or where to stay longer) were taken care of at any time. In Athens, you can discover a lot very well on foot. However, the driving service gives a welcome rest in between places. A great experience!

Punctual pickup with Mercedes Van. Driver at the same time a kind of guide who knew a lot to report and also responded to his own wishes during the tour (e.g. where was a short stop and where was a longer stop). First we went to various sights in Athens, then to Piraeus, tour along the coast to Cape Sounio to the Temple of Poseidon before going to a restaurant and back to Athens. Great tour with nice driver!

This was a great way for us to see many of the sites we wanted to see, plus some that we wouldn’t have known existed. We didn’t have a professional guide, but our driver Dimitri was excellent and helped us enjoy our stops even more. Of all the tours I’ve done on this trip, this was my favourite by far! Thanks Dimitri & team!

Athens is hot and you always have a guide with an air conditioned car and cold water waiting. Wonderful to know exactly what to do and where to go. It does not include fees or food you’ll be paying those.

Really great day, hit alot of highlights in Athens and then off to the Cape for the Temple of Poseidon, which was a beautiful area.
