Discover the History and Greatness of Athens with a Knowledgeable Local Driver/Guide!


Welcome to Athens.

During this full day tour you will see all the most popular sights and experience the best parts of the city with a local driver guide and the latest Mercedes Vito-Tourer Minivan.

We'll see all of the things you would see on an ordinary tour - they're certainly worthwhile. But I will also show you the special things that make Athens great.

As your private driver/guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you have. In our tour we will visit he ACROPOLIS hill and the architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: the PROPYLAEA, the TEMPLE of ATHENA NIKE, the ERECHTHEION and finally, "the harmony between matter and spirit", the PARTHENON and then the New Acropolis MUSEUM. Afterwards, we will drive to the PANATHENAIC STADIUM , the Temple of OLYMPIAN ZEUS and HADRIAN'S ARCH. Driving down Herod Atticus Str. , you will see the Evzones in their picturesque uniform and the ex. Kings Palace etc.

Itinerary

The Athens Sightseeing starts at the ACROPOLIS hill, with well known architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens that includes ERECHTHEION (female statues of the CARYATIDES or Maidens dedicated to goddess Athena and god Poseidon), temple of Athena NIKE and PROPYLEA. You will also have a great chance to foresee the monument (that puts order in mind), which is the PARTHENON. From the top of the Acropolis hill you can see, the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, the Theatre of Dionysus and the Areopagus (Mars hill). Then we will drive to the Temple of Olympian ZEUS and Hadrian's Arch, as well as the Panathenaic STADIUM.
