He was early to the hotel which was a good start. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. We had a great tour. Would recommend him to anyone looking to get a lot of Athens covered in a short period of time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind words about my tour. It was a great pleasure meeting you. I wish all the best.

Excellent tour. Very knowledgeable and well planned out. There was a protest in the center of the city and Nektarios planned the timing accordingly so we could still see what we wanted but avoid the closed streets and traffic . He also took us to a fantastic local restaurant that had excellent food and very friendly service. We really enjoyed our time and it was well worth the money. Thank you, Nektarios!

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

Apologies Nektarios, for a delayed review! Nektarios is an excellent English-speaking guide. In addition to his knowledgeable of Athens, he was flexible and responsive to questions and to our requests to change the itinerary he'd planned for us. Best of all, he has a warm, engaging sense of humor and can recommend places for great non-touristic Greek dining (Thank you for the "Pende Phi" restaurant!). I would wholeheartedly recommend Nektarios to anyone wanting an overview tour of 'his city'!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind words about my tour. It was a great pleasure meeting you . I wish you all the best.

Had a great day in Athens. Nektarios delivered everything on the list. Also had an awesome traditional Greek lunch with his friends in a lovely restaurant away from tourists. Provided water and was spot on with timing for entire day. Highly recommend to all. Perfect day

My husband and I had an amazing tour and an awesome 1/2 day experience with our guide Nektarios G. He is everything you hope a local tour guide will be. Interested and energetic, he has much knowledge about Athens, and life in Greece to share. He is very smart and will give you a wonderful tour of the city and more. He is a family man, and very articulate and kind. We will never forget our awesome experience. This guy is the BEST! Anne & Jim Chicago

You have to do this tour! Can't say enough about our guide Nektarios. His vehicle was spotless and extremely comfortable. This was our first time in Athens and Nektarios did so much to enrich our knowledge about the city's history and culture. Do yourself a favour and accept his recommendation for an authentic Greek lunch spot...you will not be disappointed. Adam and Hilary - Toronto, Canada

We only had 1 full day in Athens and were able to see all the highlights through Nektarios tour. His explanation, video and maps made the ancient ruins come alive. We learned so much about modern day life in Athens through is personal stories of growing up and family life. He took us to a restaurant where we had authentic Greek food that we would never have found on our own. He maximized our time so we got the most our of Athens in one day.

We spent an entire day with Nektarios on a tour of Athens and Cape Sounion. It was a perfect day spent sightseeing. This day was our best guided tour in our two weeks of sightseeing throughout Greece.

Tours by Locals is a fantastic option for those not wanting to be part of the bus herds. They accommodated our custom list of sites and added many more. Our guide, Nektarios, was excellent! He is a perfect host- professional, courteous, and patient. He is a wonderful representative for Athens and Greece. Our last stop at the local Greek restaurant was one of our vacation highlights! We recommend Tour by Locals and especially Nektarios highly!

We had a great day out with Nektarious. As we had already seen the hi-lites of Athens we visited Cape Sounion and since the weather was great at our request he took us to a beautiful beach for a swim overlooking the temple of Poseidon..

A tour with Nektarios is a must! We spent our first day in Athens on a half day tour with Nektarios through Tours by Locals. Instantly, we felt relaxed as he pulled away from our hotel explaining our tour. Throughout the day, Nektarios explained the history of Athens as well as local and current affairs. He is very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. A wonderful way to start a vacation in Athens.

We had a great day with Nektarios. He was so considerate of us and made sure we always had water on this very hot day. He is very knowledgeable about Athens and also very warm and friendly. There is so much to see in the city and he helped us see and learn about as much as could. He also took us to an authentic Greek restaurant for lunch which was one of the highlights of our entire trip. I would definitely recommend him to show you around Athens!

I wanted to let you know how impressed and completely satisfied my whole family was with Nektarios. The day was everything we had hoped for and more. I grew up right outside of Athens but have haven't been back since 1971 and the more Nektarios talked the more great memories started coming back to me. The lunch that we all shared was in the top 5 thing of the whole trip. AMAZING! The only thing I forgot to do was take a picture of the table before diving in. I will be sure to recommend his service.

I frequently use guides when I travel and Nektarios is a cut above. My girlfriend and I utilized his services on two different tours -> to the main sites in Athens and to Delphi. He both worked with me on what stops were 'musts' for me and added a couple of other sites, like a view of Athens and a Orthodox cathedral close to Delphi, that I would not have known about but were two of the most memorable parts of the tour. I highly recommend his services.

Really enjoyed our half day tour of Athens. Nektarias was engaging, knowledgeable, and flexible to suit our preferences. Did most of the city highlights with some great view points along the way. Enjoyed also learning about life in today's modern Athens from his experiences. We ended up out at the beach area for lunch, he put a lot of miles on for us. In a city of crazy drivers, it was nice to have a calm guy on the wheel

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you immensely for your kind words.It was a pleasure to touring with you and I hope to see you again in the future.
