Tour: #253639, Athens Airport Layover Private Tour by Minivan (Transfers are Included), Athens, Attiki, Greece    view tour
Date: Aug 10/18

Markos was an exceptional tour guide. He is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to get to talk to. His enthusiasm and excitement to give the tour was unbelievable. Out of all tours that my family and I have been on (which is a lot) this was our favorite by far. I simply do not have enough nice things to say about Markos. Amazing for families and kids, however some young kids may not fully appreciate all of his knowledge. 5/5. Best tour I've ever had.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is a great honor for me to read such wonderful things about my services. Thank you very much and I hope to see you again soon.

We spent our entire day with Markos V. for a Delphi tour. Markos exceeded our expectations in every aspect of the day. He promptly arrived at our hotel, and was so patient in waiting for us as we were just finishing up breakfast. Markos is very knowledgeable about his home country, the history, and the mythology. He is a wonderful driver and guide. His vehicle was pristine and comfortable. He even stoped along the way so we could get a coffee. We highly recommend Markos, and the tours he offers.

Markos exceeded everyone's expectation!! Since he was a 5th generation Athenian, he not only was knowledgeable about the tourist sites but also about Greece in general. We loved his entrepreneurial spirit. He answered Greek Mythology questions for my Granddaughter, history questions for my Grandson, economic questions for the adults. I've engaged many private tour guides in the past and had some great ones--Markos is now #1 on my list!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your beautiful words. It was a great pleasure to meet you and your lovely family. I hope to see you again soon in Athens.

Markos is the most patient, genuine, polite, handsome and friendly tour guide you could ever wish for. He is a wealth of knowledge about more than just Athens' history and he is very considerate and well-mannered. A true ambassador to the city of Athens and to ToursByLocals. He met us punctually at the hotel and drove us in his spotlessly clean and comfortable vehicle. All of his time predictions were spot on - as were all of his food and restaurant suggestions. My strongest possible recommendation.

My 18-year old daughter and I both enjoyed a fantastic four-day tour with Markos. His kindness and passion for his work and Greece were evident at every moment. He always put us first making sure our interests were fully covered. Conversations with him were very interesting as we learned not only about the historical sights but gained valuable insights into what Greece is today. What a worthwhile experience in all respects with a very fine and memorable guide. p.s. Meteora monasteries were amazing

The Argolis tour was fantastic. The places visited are top notch, in beauty and historical importance. Timing for each site was perfect, as all the organization of the trip, you see in a day what would take you a week. Markos provides you with all the information needed to understand and enjoy each site, verbally as well as through magnificent videos (in the car, during the drive to each place) by archaeologists explaining each site. You get so well briefed, you are the best guide for exploring each site.

A lovely day, Markos arrived a few minutes early, smartly presented and with an immaculate vehicle. He was able to flex the day around our preferences as we had already seen some areas. His English was colloquial and fluent . He had obvious pride in his native city and was able to explain some of the current difficulties and illustrate modern Athenian life. He had a good knowledge of history, legend and gods to underpin the development of Athens. He gave us a good sense of the sites.Lunch was fabulous.

Markos was thorough and knowledgeable. Gave us plenty of time to see sites. Took us to a neighborhood restaurant that was outstanding. Made a special stop at the Holocaust memorial at our request. Did extras, bought us koulouri and had a bottle of water for our visit to the Acropolis. An excellent drive throughout the city that we never would have seen with a tour guide without a car. Although he doesn't go into sites, we had a more thorough Athens experience this way. Well worth his fee. Thank you Markos

If you ever want to tour Athens—Toursbylocals—with guide Markos V--was excellent- We toured Athens in his beautiful Mercedes van & he gave us the history of Athens and of each place we stopped. He was very flexible in our schedule (to do just what we wanted to do). We even stopped at his favorite local lunch place and had an excellent authentic Greek lunch. He lived in Rome his whole life, and was lots of fun, very knowledgeable and interesting. We highly recommend this company and Markos V.

Markos was a wonderful guide last week for our family of 6 adults. He met us, with umbrellas in hands, as we disembarked from our cruise ship. From the moment we met him, we knew that we would have a great experience! Markos followed the itinerary that we had specifically requested. Perfect! He even took care of the weather and made the rain go away before our first stop. The highlights of the day were the Acropolis, the Changing of the Guard, and our lunch stop at a local eatery...served family style!

Markos was excellent. Very professional. As concerns this tour though, I feel the whole day should have been spent in Athens. The half day spent going to Corinth on top of the half day previous to Poseidon was too much. Also, 1 hour, 10 minutes at the Acropolis was not enough. 2 hours would be preferable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. Your feedback is vital to me, in order to develop the experience of my tours. I understand that it would have been better for you if you had booked an "Athens Full Day Tour" instead, in order to experience more of Athens.

Half day tour to kill time - walked away with a whole new understanding of Greece and its culture; guide was well informed, knowledgeable, adept at presenting information in understandable terms; willingness to accommodate physical limitations while insuring we saw everything we wanted is noteworthy. Markos remained ever vigilant, humorous and entertaining. His ability to link ancient/modern history and mythology with what we were seeing was outstanding. He insured we maximized our limited time.

Marlos is the best private tour guide, without question! Marcos arrived ahead of schedule, was professionally presented and offered an immaculate vehicle; in no time we were seated and on our way to an extended half day tour of Athens. En route to the Acropolis of Athens we received a wealth of valuable and interesting information from Markos. Tips and hints from Markos proved very helpful throughout the day and a Greek lunch was a huge highlight - Markos impressed us and is highly recommended!

We loved the two tours, Nemea Wine Roads and Athens Full Day tour, we took with Markos. He is knowledgeable about everything, reliable, professional, flexible and a great driver. His English is perfect. His vehicle was comfortable and held all our luggage. He planned our trip based on what we already had seen and stopped along the way if we requested it. We would book a several days trip with him if we return to Athens.

We were picked up at the pier in Athens by Markos for a 6 hour tour of the Greek countryside and a bit of Athens. He was truly OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY. He was exceptionally kind, courteous, friendly and warm. He spoke about his country with sincerity and pride. He told us a little about his personal life, which is always endearing. His knowledge about what we were seeing was remarkable and his manner of presenting information was informative with many anecdotes which always makes a story more interesting

He tailors to his audience using history as well as insights most travelers will NEVER hear from anyone else. He connects Greek Gods and Goddesses and historical facts with modern day Greek life! Next trip...I'm booking Markos for my entire sightseeing needs...worth every euro!! Thank you Tours By Locals and Markos!

Markos was remarkable. His knowledge and interesting stories was unsurpassed. He was considerate, and very safety conscience. He has a pleasant sense of humor. He tailored our tour to sights we had not visited and took us off the beaten track to get the local flare. His vehicle was stunningly clean and ultra comfortable. I would highly recommend choosing Markos for your Athens (all sights), Cape Sounion, Poseidon's temple. Well versed in English. You will not be disappointed

I had an amazing tour of Athens thanks to Markos. I had about 7 hours of layover in Athens before hopping on the plane to Santorini. I needed someone who could pick me up and drop off at the airport; someone who was knowledgeable about the history and culture of Athens as well local places to try authentic cuisine of Athens. Markos exceeded all my expectations. He was charming, professional, funny and made me feel at ease. He took me to a great local restaurant which was fantastic! Thank you, Markos.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maria, Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope to see you again in another trip. Take care, Your friend in Athens, Markos

Very personable and knowledgeable guide - fun to be with and he made the whole crazy Athen's traffic nightmare seem to go away. He was always right where he said he would meet us and prepared us with everything we needed to enjoy viewing each site on our own. The lunch stop was the best! You should hire him just to go to his "secret" place for lunch.
