Chris is an amazing guide, made us feel safe and welcome in a new country that we were visiting for the first time. He is an excellent driver and knows what he is talking about. He was with us for 7 days out of our 9 days trip, drove us across the mainland Greece, showed us just the right restaurants to eat at, gave us great perspective on all the sights that we saw, shared recipe of our favorite Greek dishes, accommodated our detours with a smile.All in all he showed us Greece like a family member would.

Chris gave us an amazing tour that included the major attractions of Athens in only five hours. He made each of the six sites we visited come alive with his historical and descriptive narrations. We could not have been happier with this private tour of Athens. We highly recommend this wonderful tour guide.

Chris was excellent, he knew the shortcuts and timing to avoid the huge crowds. Book an early tour with him and you will have a wonderful experience. His briefings before we went to all of the sites enhanced our visit tremendously. Have him take you for local food, a treat you won't forget.
We had a fantastic day with Chris!! He was very friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and ensured we had a great day. Would definitely book with him again. Highly recommended!!

If you want to love Athens, then take a tour with Chris! Charming man in spotless vehicle who so obviously adores Athens and it's contagious. Easy drop off and pick up from each place. Even thought he didn't talk in the attractions he gave lots of information and made it easy to take our time. He told us things about Changing of the Guard that people in other groups didn't know - we told people about the significance of the uniform! This was a wonderful introduction to a city I will revisit!

Chris far exceeded our expectations. We took the 7 day tour and could not have been more satisfied with Chris' service. Although he is not a licensed guide to take you into the museums and sites, he is well versed on Greek history and clearly explained the historical significance of all the places we visited. He knew the best sites, which hotels in which to stay and which local restaurants served the best authentic Greek food. Chris is professional, has a spotless car and was a delight to be with.

This is the way to see Athens if you only have a short time! Our guide Chris was patient, competent and very knowledgeable. We felt like we hit the highlights of the city and had plenty of time to explore the Acropolis.
Chris was waiting for us when we got off the ship (in the rain) with a smile, and was an absolute charm to be with for the day. He took us a couple of places you don't get to see on a hop-on/hop-off tour, and knew JUST where to park to allow us to see some things! His knowledge of the area, and the history, was incredible. Can't forget to mention his great sense of humour!!!

DONT BOTHER READING THE REVIEW BOOK THE Tour now. Chris was amazing, everything was as advertised and better.Chris has a wealth of knowledge, we booked him for a full day in Athens but would use him anywhere in mainland Greece. Pre Trip communication strong. Chris was well prepared, speaks perfect English and most importantly adapted the tour "on the fly". Customer Friendly, Prompt, Knowledgeable, Adaptable, Valuable

Chris was outstanding. He picked us on time (early actually) got us too the Acropolis before the crowds and scheduled a great tour of Athens with input from us. Highly recommend Chris to all my friends.
Chris was just great. We knew he was a driver, not a tour guide, but his knowledge of the history and significance of places he took us was perfect. His special spot for the Changing of the Guard make that a unique experience. His restaurant recommendation on the way to Sounion was delightful and a nice rest after climbing the Acropolis in Athens. He was kind and considerate of my physical limitations and generally full of knowledge. I would highly recommend Chris for any sightseeing in Greece.

We enjoyed an 8 hour tour with Chris P around Athens. He picked us up promptly at the meeting spot off our ship at the desired time. We went to the Acropolis first. Then to several other historical spots. While on the car ride between all our destinations, he was giving us the history of places and answering our questions knowledgeably. He then took us to an authentic Greek restaurant for lunch where we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I would highly recommend Chris and this tour of Athens!

Did a 4-day bus tour of mainland ruins & 3-day cruise to see the islands. Wanted a full day/night tour of Athens & Cape. Researched hop on/hop off bus, bus tours, and Tours by locals. Chose Christos Paparas & were 100% happy. He's fluent in English & passionate about his tour. Picked us up from our boat, did Athens tour, kept our luggage for 3 hours while be shopped in Plaka, & took us to great seafood restaurant before sunset at Temple of Poseidon, & dropped us at Airport Hotel for our early AM flight.

Chris Paparas is an expert driver, with a highly professional, calm manner. I took the ambitious 5-day tour: Argolis, Sparta, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora. I felt accommodated and never rushed. At each ancient site, Chris gave a brief overview, and then drove me to the entrance and picked me up at the exit. Chris has excellent contacts with local hotels for a good value, and family-owned restaurants for exquisite traditional dishes. Chris' knowledge, respect and enthusiasm for his country was delightful!
