A Recent Review of this tour

Kostas was amazing! Great driver and great vehicle. Excellent tips. Very kind to kids. Very helpful. Time ran over by about an hour because he wanted to show us some more things and no extra charge. Very professional. He was on time. I strongly recommend him and would use him any time my path may cross again in Athens. Olympia is pretty cool to see too! He even taught him some Greek phrases and taught us a lot of about Greek culture. Much appreciated
