We have traveled the world but just recently started using the services of Tours by Locals in Athens with Vassilios V. He was extremely punctual, polite and informative... a real pleasure spending time with him. We are highly recommending Tours by Locals to our friends. Those going to Athens should definitely use Vassilios.

Vissilios was a great guide. The Acropolis and Parthenon were on our tour but we saw those the day before so he modified the trip for us. He made it a unique experience.

Had a great time with Vassilios. He efficiently covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time. The museum is a must do. Had a great lunch at a nice small local restaurant. Ask a lot of questions about Greece life - he's got some good stories. He also has a great sense of humor!

We were underwhelmed by this tour. The guide Vassilios was nice enough but not particularly exceptional. He dropped us off at places, the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, the Kerameokos Museum and Arch. site and then picked us back up. Taxi service with some narration. Then took us to a restaurant where the food was good and the people nice (not particularly a note worthy place) and then he sat at a different table from us and we paid for our own lunch. This tour was expensive for what was provided.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. It is uncommon for me to get a 3-star review as I have set a very high standard for my services and I am sorry to hear that it was not met. During lunch, I always sit at a different table, in order to provide some privacy and personal time to my customers. Kind Regards Vassilios

We had a wonderful day in Athens with Vassilios. He knew the city perfectly and took us to a variety of sites, from the Acropolis to the Olympic stadium to the changing of the guard. He gave us a great lesson on Greek history, and current Greek culture. It was a great day with great man.

Vassilios is an amazing guide - friendly, knowledgeable and easy to understand. On our tour of Athens , he gave us ample information for each of the sites we visited before we entered them, so that we could appreciate what we were seeing. He encouraged us to ask questions - use the "Socratic" method of learning - to get as much as we could out of his tour. Vassilios planned our itinerary based on our interests, and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend him!

Vassilios was friendly, professional and efficient. He's very knowledgeable and he knew the answer to every single question we asked. ALSO- the tiny restaurant he brought us to for lunch was absolutely amazing. We tried a little of all the dishes and we weren't sorry. Lunch was surprisingly inexpensive and the staff was adorable. The tour is great if you only have a day in Athens, you can cover quite a bit in a limited amount of time. Thanks Vassilios!

Thanks to Vassilios for making our short stay in Athens a great experience. He showed us the major sites, gave us time on our own to visit the Parthenon and the amazing Acropolis Museum, took us to a local spot for lunch where we feasted on fabulous traditional Greek food, all the while sharing his vast knowledge of Athens and the history of Greece. We highly recommend this tour with Vassilios!!

On our first visit to Athens we chose to do a tour with one of the best guides from your company. His name is Vassilios who was not only knowledgeable of all attractions but gave us a wonderful insight into Greek History and Mythology. I would highly recommend Vassilios to any visitor wanting to take in the tourist/historical sights of Athens with the best commentary. He also took us to the best Traditional Greek Taverna for lunch. Well done Vassilios. John and Judith from Australia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your comments, hope to see you soon again Kindest Regards Vassilios

I wish to record my sincere thanks to Vassilios for a superb tour around the main sites of Athens. Sadly my wife was unable to accompany us as she was unwell on the day but I had a most enjoyable number of hours with an excellent commentary on Greek culture and history. We shall return to Athens and spend more time to appreciate the history and next time would love to eat in the restaurants Vassillilios pointed out to me.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your kind review Best Regards Vassilios

Vassilios was a fabulous tour guide for our day in Athens! We didn't have a lot of time to see the city, so Vassilios tailored a tour for us to see all of the major sites, in Athens. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, and provided us with a vast amount of information. He also recommended several restaurants and areas of the city to visit, which we did. We were very pleased with his recommendations! I would highly recommend Vassilios as a tour guide!

Vassillios is a gentleman and a scholar! We did the best of Athens in a few hours. It was fantastic and V knew all the answers to our questions and more knowledge than we could think to ask. Respectful and courteous, I never had to open a door in or out of his beautiful well equipped town car. I am a foodie and there is no words to express the tasty culinary home cooked delights and very hospitable host at the family run Greek food restaurant that we stopped for lunch. Yummmy! Bravo Vassillios A+++ tour

We had a very enjoyable day with Vassillios. He had us at all the sites before the bus loads of people arrived which made it easy to get around and enjoyable. Vassillios was knowledgable and very easy to spend the day with. Many interesting conversations were had. We highly recommend Vassillios, we certainly got to see the most of Athens in one day. And the restaurant we went to for lunch was amazing.

An excellent tour of Athens with Vassilios with stops at the Acropolis to visit the Parthenon, the New Acropolis Museum and a photo opp at the Temple of Zeus and The Panathenaic Stadium to name a few, before enjoying an extremely delicious authentic Greek lunch at a great local restaurant. A wonderful tour with a wonderful driver.

Vassilios was wonderful as was the tour. His knowledge of Ancient Greece, his humor and his kindness made, for the four of us, the perfect day to experience Athens as a whole and the sites we visited in particular. He carefully prepared us before each site visit with interesting insights into the times, the people and the impact not only on Greece but the ripple effects that affect us all. We finished the tour with a deeper appreciation for what we had seen and a fond connection with our new friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your tour in Athens Greece! Also, thank you for the kind words regarding my services. Hope to see you soon in near future again. Sincerely, Vassilios

Vassilios was terrific!! I cannot recommend enough!! He was so knowledgable and did everything within his power to make the trip comfortable for us. He even recommended the best restaurant in the Plaka....not budget-busting but delicious and plentiful, not to mention the friendliness of the workers there. I was 100% pleased

Vassilios was professional, courteous and extremely informative. We learned much about Greek history, culture and life and while touring in his well kept and nicely air conditioned Mercedes. He also took us to enjoy some delicious and authentic Greek cuisine in a lovely neighborhood. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone visiting Athens. Thanks for a great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frances Thanks a lot for your suggestion is a great idea for people with your culture but there are 2 big problems 1. if they visit 1st museum then at Acropolis hill is very crowded 4000-9000 people! remember when you left the Acropolis hill? 2. Many people they want to skip museum because as they say they dont like museums! Kindest Regards Vassilios V

This was a wonderful tour of Athens! Vassilios picked us up early & we were on top of the Acropolis before the crowds arrived. He also explained how my husband who uses a walker could be brought to the top by the funicular. We then went to the amazing Acropolis museum, Temple of Zeus, 1896 Olympic Stadium & changing of the guard, followed by an absolutely wonderful Greek meal at a local inexpensive family restaurant where we sampled 8 Greek dishes. V. was very pleasant, interesting & helpful - excellent!!
