A full day private tour of the must see spots in Athens

The tour starts from your ship or hotel. I will pick you up, with my car (if you are just 2 to 4 people**) and do a big city tour of Athens.

The center of Athens is a 20 minute drive from the port and on our way we will visit the ancient Olympic Stadium, the biggest temple in Greece for Zeus, and the Parliament.

Our next stop will be the recently opened Acropolis museum, now globally recognized as one of the best in the world. From there we will stroll to the Acropolis. It is a must to walk in the Plaka, the old aristocratic residential area, and have lunch in a traditional restaurant with a glass of wine or ouzo. Usually, the weather is warm, sunny and pleasant all year round to enjoy your meal outdoors, even in winter time.

Let me guide you as you explore the historic city of Athens in a way that will make you remember this tour as the best you have had so far.

Any requests you may have or suggestions are more than welcome!

**If needed, a minibus, Pullman or a limo are also available.


Our itinerary is flexible, depending upon your interests. From your location, we should visit the:

Olympic Stadium, the biggest temple of Greece for Zeus
the Parliament
the Acropolis museum
the Acropolis
the Plaka district

Return to your location.

What’s Included

Other: The privately guided tour and transportation if you are with a small group (up to 4 people).

Should there be the need for extra capacity I will quote you in advance.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

25 EUR - This is an estimated amount that covers the cost of lunch and coffee in a local taverna.

If you choose to go more Up-Scale in your dining choice, price may increase considerably.

What’s Extra

Other: Admission to the Acropolis and its new museum, 17 euros each.
But from April it will be 30 euros.

Shopping is a pleasant experience too, as most of our products are made in and around Athens so they are of better quality, price and variety! I can find you anything: from fashion designers, shoe shops, sandal makers, jewelry shops, leather goods, antiques, rug shops or the food market.

If you feel this is for you: make sure to bring your Credit Card. :-D

A Recent Review of this tour

Diana was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to accommodate our fear of driving into Athens. She met us at a Metro station outside of the city. We appreciated her willingness to change her normal routine. Diana quickly navigated Athens, taking us to the highest hill to view the city and the Acropolis, to the changing of the guards, the Acropolis Museum, and the Parthenon. We had to stand in very few lines due to her contacts. We ended the day at Gods Restaurant. A very good day.
