As my kids said after our perfect day in Athens - "find me something that wasn't amazing about Markos!!" They wanted us to double our tip :). Touring his city with interested visitors is in his blood. He had the amazing ability to let us learn and experience this great city at our own pace and in our own way. He answered everyone of our questions with patience and concise intellect. My family (12 & 14 YO) will never forget this day in Athens and our time with Markos was a BIG part. Highly recommend!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, and for sharing your experience with me. You also made my day wonderful, and it was a great pleasure to show you my beautiful city. I hope to see you again in the future. I wish you All the Best!

For sight-seeing outside of Athens, book Markos for a beautiful drive up the coast to Poseidon's Temple. Stopped for tasty lunch at a spot with seaside view. Markos knows how to avoid the worst of the area traffic and the tour was exactly what I wanted for a second trip to Athens. You can book Markos without worry!

We HIGHLY recommend Markos! We only had one day in Athens & Markos was the perfect driver/guide for that. Very nice van, excellent driver navigating crazy streets. SO informative! He prepped us before each site we visited- he talked about what we would be seeing along with great iPad slideshow photos & visuals so we would know the significance of what we were seeing/touring- it was like a tutorial classroom in a van! Since he is a driving guide he REALLY compensated for not entering the sites with us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. I wish you all the best!

Our group of four seniors had a great day with Markos and would highly recommend him to anyone else. Markos speaks excellent English and his Mercedes van was both immaculate and comfortable. Markos is a good story teller and we never felt overwhelmed or bored with the historical narrative. Markos also uses a variety of audio visual tools (on his iPad and the van's DVD player) to help illustrate the history of the sites we were seeing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. I wish you all the best!

Markos V was fabulous. From the moment he picked us up at the ship he excelled in everything. We booked a private tour and wanted to make some changes to the itinerary. Marco instantly revised plans and designed the absolutely perfect day for us. He was not only a wealth of information; he was a pleasure to spend the day with. We highly recommend him.

After touring with Markos for the Airport Layover Tour the previous day, we were excited to spend the day with him on the Dephi Tour. His knowledge of all the areas we stopped was so informative and interesting. He is such a wonderful person and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him! Thanks so much for making our short stay in Athens perfect!

We were a group of six. Marcos was extremely efficient and friendly and provided a high level of quality information, including a short video of the Acropolis, highlighting its major features and history. His itinerary was flexible, responding to our interests in the major attractions. Lunch was at an authentic Greek restaurant, where the food was excellent. An excellent day. Marcos was one of the best tour guides we have had across many destinations. Highly recommended.

What a great day we had in Athens with Markos! His knowledge of the history and geography of the area was most impressive. With 2 of us using canes, we certainly had no desire to climb to the Parthenon; so a 75 minute visit to the new Parthenon Archeological Museum was perfect, with magnificent views. We efficiently drove past the important tourist sights of Athens and the Athenian Riviera, with great photo stops. The food at the local restaurant Markos took us to, was outstanding. A wonderful tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for choosing me to show you my city! I wish you all the best!!

Markos was great arranging for us to see the major sites in Athens and the best time to avoid the crowds. He has a keen knowledge of Greek history and his tablet 3-D presentation of the monuments is great to get a good understanding of the culture beyond the magnificent ruins that remain. He took us to a family owned restaurant away from the tourist areas that was excellent. Markos is highly recommended.

Wow! Markos is a fantastic guide! He made our day in Athens memorable and special. He is tremendously friendly yet professional-had the day beautifully laid out, but left plenty of flexibility for our timing/preferences. He greatly enhanced our experience with his vast knowledge of the city and its history, as well as through the use of three-D media that showed what some of the things we saw USED to look like. I can't imagine how anyone could have done a better job of showing us this beautiful city!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you is not enough for such wonderful words. I wish you all the best and I hope to see you again in the near future! Thank you!

We had an amazing time yesterday. Markos was so knowledgable, friendly, courteous and obviously proud of Athens. We learnt so much more about the city, it's history and the landmarks than we ever would have achieved without him as our guide. The 3D stimulations on his iPad enabled a trip back in time to see the monuments as they were, which we would not have otherwise seen. If we ever return to the city we would definitely ask him to guide us through any tour. Donna, Scott & Adam

If you have only one day to see Athens, you do not want to miss the chance too see it with Markos. He was well-organized and flexible, with solid knowledge that he generously shared. His plan for us took into consideration that our group of seven ranged from age 8 to age 80. We saw all the principal sites at the coolest time of this August day with the fewest crowds possible. And that was on a day when there were four cruise ships docked for Athens. Plus the van was new, clean, and comfortable. Excellent.

We spent an amazing day with Markos. There is no better way to explore Athens, plus learn so much about its incredible history, plus all of the hidden secrets this great town has to Athens. Markos is originally from Athens, so his knowledge of the town, the sites and places to enjoy was perfect. Plus he was willing to share his wealth of knowledge of other Greek islands we are going to visit, so we will be thanking him often during our 2 weeks in Greece. A great guide for a great city.
