Dimitris was fantastic. He picked us up at the cruise terminal for a 6 hour city tour. All was great. You have to have him take you to lunch at his friends restaurant. Great Greek lunch!!best to you Dimitris
Cynthia PhillipsUnited States
Dimitris did a great job! He arrived promptly and was accommodating for our group of six. His van was clean and was perfect for our group. His itinerary gave us a great tour of Athens. We loved his videos before going to a site. It increased our understanding of the site and the history. He also had a good command of the history of the city. He spoke English very well and was easily understood. He navigated the very busy traffic well. We would recommend Dimitris.
Marcia D.United States
Dimitri took us to all of the major sites in Athens, explaining much of the historical and cultural background and highlights. Very knowledgeable and easy guide to spend a full day tour with. Do not hesitate to take a tour with him!

We had a lovely day with Dimitris, who was very flexible as we asked to customize our tour, mostly due to the rainy, windy weather. He was happy to oblige. Naturally he knows all the shortcuts, and helped make the most of our day in Athens. He shared lots of great information and made sure we saw as much as possible. Thank you, Dimitris!

A superb tour. Dimitris adapted the tour beautifully to take into account my limited mobility. yet I was still able to see and photograph the major sites. (even the Acropolis) The changing of the guard was an experience, I have never seen anything like it. This guide comes highly recommended
Herbert KorossMiami, FLORIDA, United States
Very flexible & accommodating; very professional.
Dimitris provided an excellent tour in the comfort of a nice MERCEDES van. He’s very knowledgeable and passionate about his home city of Athens and we thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour. Our only complaint was he wasn’t able to enter the archeological sites with us however he did provide a 3D animated video explanation prior to entering.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, however, you already knew that I cannot follow you in the archaeological sites. Pay more attention to what you read next time.
Ampy CoxUnited States
We had been with Dimitris the day before. He picked the 4 of us up early in the morning at our hotel. He has this sort of iPad screen in his van that he shows us what we're going to be seeing. Tells us the history etc. He knows all there is to know about all the runs etc. in Athens. Very friendly and young tour guide. Highly recommend him!
Ampy CoxUnited States
Dimitris was waiting for us at the airport. We had a half day tour the first day in Athens. Upon our arrival he took us to a local restaurant by the ocean for an amazing lunch, then onto our tour. The following day was our full day tour, which started early in the morning. He was an amazing tour guide, very knowledgeable and explained everything to us. There were 4 of us and we were very comfortable in his van. He is a very friendly, and young guide. Knows all there is to know about Athens! A must
Charles F.United States
Dimitris is an outstanding guide! He has excellent knowledge of Athens. We really appreciated his thoughtfulness and flexibility with our travel time constraints. Would definitely recommend Dimitris's services!
Kate L.Portland, OR, United States
Dimitris was so wonderful! We only had a few hours before we were to board a cruise. He met us at our hotel and took us all around Athens. He was extremely knowledgeable and give us a great start to our trip. The highlight was the authentic Greek lunch where all the local greeks eat, not the tourists. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a private tour!
Karrie F.United States
Dimitris did a wonderful job with our tours of Athens. Very educational and fun. He knows his history well yet made it fun for the kids. He did a great job driving around the city and avoiding traffic and the lines/long wait times. I liked how he had pictures and videos in his van to explain the sites before we went in. This helped us stay cool, hydrated and resting between the many sites. His van is very clean and the air conditioner works great. Great local restaurant for lunch as well.
Bernadette MastUnited States
My family headed outside of Athens with Dimitris on the day of the tragic wildfires. We enjoyed learning about and seeing Corinth, Mycenae and Nafplion. Dimitris is a very good driver and guide and his van is very comfortable and wifi equipped. However the true measure of a guide is managing unexpected changes. We were unable to return to Athens that night, and Dimitris secured nice lodging for us and found a lovely spot for a late dinner where we learned more about Greece from him. Highly recommend!
Steve BurtonUnited States
Very informative, personable and knowledgeable. On time and safe driver
Swati GoelUnited States
Dimitris was a wonderful guide for our family of 6 which included two teenagers, a 10 yr old and my elderly mother in law. We were given a thorough overview of all of the important sites with a lot of flexibility . Dimitris has a very impressive knowledge of the history and area. He did not accompany us into the historical sites but gave us a great overview complete with videos in the comfort of his air conditioned van which I much preferred. He is warm, soft spoken and clearly passionate about his job!
Ed FellUnited States
Dimitris was an excellent guide - he spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable on all of the sites that we visited. Athens traffic was terrible on the day we visited, but his local knowledge of the street system was invaluable in allowing us to see most of the sights that we wanted to see.
Gregory GraybillUnited States
Dimitris is charming and funny. He knows the history and has all the information available.
Matt JohnsonUnited States

Charles DavisUnited States
We booked a total of 3 excursions with Dimitris. He is professional, friendly, and a good driver. His Mercedes van is as described - very clean, excellent AC, and video screens for presentations. We loved this trip to Delphi! The drive through the Greek countryside was beautiful and interesting. We spent about 3 hours in Delphi, touring the ancient site as well as the museum. We also really enjoyed the lunch venue that Dimitris chose (excellent Greek food and a play area for our toddler kids!).
Charles DavisUnited States
We booked a total of 3 excursions with Dimitris. He is professional, friendly, and a good driver. His Mercedes van is as described - very clean, excellent AC, and video screens for presentations. The Athens full day tour was very helpful in orienting oneself in the city, and also very interesting. Dimitris accomodated my mother who was in a wheelchair. He also changed the usual tour to accommodate our preferences. We enjoyed the visit to the ancient Agora and to the highest hill top point in Athens.
Charles DavisUnited States
We booked a total of 3 excursions with Dimitris. He is professional, friendly, and a good driver. His Mercedes van is as described - very clean, excellent AC, and video screens for presentations.

Along the way, he pointed out various sights and told us relevant history and politics. He also took us to a seaside restaurant for dinner. We enjoyed the trip and highly recommend it!

Vickie WilliamsUnited States
Dimitris was awesome!! Extremely personable, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Had a full day touring.... and took us everywhere we wanted to go in addition to some unexpected locations.

Dimitris, you ROCK!!!
Jeffrey BarnettUnited States
Our group of 6 just completed the full day private tour and it was wonderful. Dimitris was funny and very knowledgeable about everything we saw. The really wonderful parts were before each thing that we would see, he spent time going through the history and show us on the video monitor in his van what we would be seeing. He made our tour so personal that we hated it to be over. Well worth every euro and I would recommend his to our friends when they come to visit.
Frank NemshickUnited States
Punctual, professional, knowledable, friendly. Dimitris guides our family of 5. He knew plenty about each site we visited as well as many cultural things about Athens. His English was very good and driving as well- especially in Athens. He took us to a local non tourist restaurant which was fantastic. Changing of the guards at the parliament and palace was nice to observe. We highly recommend Dimitris to anyone considering Thank you very much! We miss you already !

Diritims was an excellent guide. He had good English. His van was equipped with speakers and video. He would explain and show items. He was willing to stop any place we wanted. He was very knowledgeable about history of all places we went. He even took us to the changing of the guard. If you want the best tour of Athens he is the guide to book. We had him for seven hours and were very impressed. When we come back we will book him again to see the items we did not have time for.
Carmine CostantiniUnited States
Excellent guide. Worked within our schedule to maximize sites to see. Very knowledgeable and informative of area. Met us at pre assigned time and location. Would highly recommend when in Athens and surrounding area.

We had an amazing tour with Dimitris throughout Athens. He definitely knows the history of Athens very well and beyond. The tour was very informative and entertaining.

Govardhanen GopalUnited States
Dimitris picked us up exactly at the time he was supposed to arrive at the hotel we were staying. He went over what we were going to visit during the day briefly before we headed out for our tour. Everything worked out as planned, we had a nice clean Mercedes van and he gave us a great tour of all the major highlights that we were visiting in Athens. I would highly recommend him for your tours in the Attica area.

Ernest GriffithUnited States
My wife and I equally enjoyed and were edified by this 3 day tour with Dimitris. He proved to be a splendid historian, giving life to these places we visited. He served as guide in Olympia, walking the course of the ancient site with his fresh review of the place. Moreover he was a thoughtful, sensitive companion-helping with our luggage, insuring our comfort, and driving masterfully along a winding mountainside road at light.
Jefferson MenzeUnited States
Dimitris was extremely knowlegable we had a terrific time. We booked a second trip a few days later because we had such a good time. He was relaxed, friendly but most of all he had so much information. we will gladly hire him again in the future when we go back to Greece had so much fun we would like to book a few overnights or extended trips. Dimitris is the best!!!
Manuel LopezUnited States

Jim Hi lthouserUnited States
Ours was a complicated tour: Six people who'd just got off a 12-day cruise with tons of luggage We asked for a highlights tour of Athens and a traditional Tacerna lunch, all in five hours. Demitris delivered. Not only was he prompt, he was personable and proved knowledgeable of the city, its history and culture. Oh, and let me add patient. He answered scores and scores of questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Athens, thanks to Dimitris. We'd highly recommend him.

What a great day we had in Delphi with Dimitris. He is a SAFE driver (especially when parallel parking) and is a great story teller. He entertained us with historical facts and "mythology" on our long drive from the center of Athens. Our rest stops were appropriately timed. Lunch was the best. We followed all his recommendations. We enjoyed walking through the little town of Arachova with him. And DON'T miss the Hosios Loukas Monastery - a highlight of our day.
Tanya T.United States
Dmitris was a great and friendly tour guide. He was informative and helpful. Before you tour a sight he shows you a video that explains the history and answers any questions. We had to make some last minute adjustments and Dmitris was wonderful at handling them. Thank you , Dmitris, for putting up with us and showing us your wonderful city. And the place to buy lunch is great! There were people getting carry out for their offices, so you know it's got to be good.
Dimitris started was a bit late picking us up at the cruise port. He did apologize and from then on he was very knowledgable and entertained us with historical facts. Very informative and helpful and he even drove us to the top of a high mountain to overlooking the entire Athens city. Great tour! Thanks Dimitris
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel sad that I got 1 unfair less star for being late for serious reasons since I informed about my delay in advance, however, I feel happy that I contributed to a joyful touring experience.
Lori DaniellUnited States
What and absolutely GREAT experience!! This was my first time booking a Tours By Locals experience and it couldn't have gone any better. Dimitris was wonderful and very knowledgeable.

Bruce EvansUnited States
Demitris was great guide and modified our tour to suite our needs ..also took us to fantastic Greek restaurant...thanks
Greg GarrettUnited States
Dimitris was full of knowledge about Athens history. The photos he showed us of the sights in ancient times overlayed on the current ruins really helped understand how things were when originally built in all their glory. The Restaurant he took us to was fabulous. Far from the tourist, at a local eatery sampling a variety of local foods. It was the best meal I had in while in Greece.

Another great tour with Tours By Locals on our first visit to Athens. Our guide Dimitris did a great job taking us up the coast to the Temple of Poseidon for a walk around and to see the sun set. On our way back to Athens we had a wonderful dinner in a local restaurant with a view of the sea. Dimitris was a history buff Extrodinaire and a wonderfully enthusiastic teacher. Great tour!

Michael FrigulettoUnited States
Well structured tour that was comfortable and informative for our family including three children ages 8 to 15. Dimitris was attentive to our needs, and we never felt rushed. We took time for lunch that was delicious and modestly priced, and another way to experience Greek culture.
Rita StoneUnited States
Jill TaylorUnited States
Dimitris was all you would want in a guide. Knowledgeable, friendly and a great driver. We saw much more than our cruise ship compatriots who paid much higher prices for ship's tours with large busloads of people. We do not hesitate to recommend Dimitris and will in fact call upon him should we return to Athens.
Jean SchlameussUnited States
Dimitris did a great job bringing us all over Argolis, Corinth and Mycena. He was informative, knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great day even though we were suffering from jet lag. His explanations kept us a captive audience in spite of our tiredness. We learned so much, as he never tired of weaving stories about the places we were seeing. And we ended up n a small town to eat a lovely dinner with local folk and food. I am a travel agent and would send my clients to him in a New York Minute!
Jean SchlameussUnited States
We only had a half day tour with Dimitris, having just landed in Athens a few hours before. But it was a great overview of Athens and it's most interesting sites, with Dimitris filling us in with the mythology and history of the area. We ended up at a great local restaurant, not the ones the tourists go to, but the locals frequent. The owner gave a sampling of several of his dishes, all were delicious. Dimitris knows the owner, so he knew how to order for us. What a great day it was!
Cory CalendineUnited States
Kristi ProctorUnited States
Dimitri picked us at 8:30 A.M. His young smiling face was a nice sight after our long trip. Van was spotless & comfortable. Wifi worked ! Great tour of the coastline, residential areas & marinas ~ He was very informative - answering endless questions. Then on to the "tourist" traps - The Acropolis etal -he had us purchase our passes in advance! He was a great driver & "guide" BEST lookout areas and fantastic family restaurant for lunch! Best private trip the way WE wanted! Request Dimitri!
Ivette RubioUnited States
Our time in Athens was fantastic..largely because of the Tour we had with Dimitris. He picked us up in an immaculate Mercedes MiniVan which had tons of room. He had a very modern display system to help give some advanced visuals of each stop of your tour. He tells you a lot of really cool information about each site and does a great job keeping you interested about each location. He went beyond what was expected and even stayed a little over our scheduled time. We highly recommend Dimitris.
Alice WongUnited States
Knowledgeable and very accommodating. He gave us helpful info on the sites we visited.
Kimberly DuncanUnited States

Our experience with Dimitris was excellent! If I were going back to Greece I would not hesitate to utilize his services again. Our tour started exactly when we were told it would and was even better than it was described to be. Dimitris was personable and very knowledgeable. He gave us background information every step of the way and gave us a taste of the local's favorite spots along with the tourist areas. Dimitris catered the trip to our needs and wishes along the way and did it with a caring, personal
Fernando CadavidUnited States
My first time in Greece and I'm extremely grateful to have had the tour by Dimitris! His incredible knowledge and infectious passion for the city is extremely inspiring. Athens will never be the same now that I've been able to see it through the eyes of such an amazing local guide. His encyclopedic wisdom and ability to convey a deep understanding of history, mythology, geography and culture will leave you with exactly what you were looking for in your first Greek experience, thank you Dimitris!!!
Mindy OsborneUnited States
Dimitris was absolutely wonderful. He was able to do everything we asked and more. There were 7 of us on the tour and all of us said the lunch Dimitris took us to was the highlight of the trip. We went to a restaurant where locals go and were served family style with tons of food for us to taste. It was a great way to experience Greek foods. We also went to the Temple of Poseidon where we had plenty of time for pictures. Then off to the Acropolis. Dimitris was very informative about his country.
