We did an Athens Highlight tour with Nektarios on December 20. The tour was great, as was Nektarios. He was very knowlegable, very informative and very friendly. His love of Athens and Greece came through clearly in his presentation. Nektarios was very communicative before our tour and picked us up at the hotel on time and dropped us at our cruise ship exactly as scheduled. It was really a very lovely morning. Nektarios was wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your kind words. I hope to meet you again soon.

We had a great time with Nektarios on November 19, 2019. He supplied the background history so that we could understand and appreciate what we were seeing. He is also an educator at a local high school. He took us all through the Plaka and pointed out restaurants for later. He took us to the Acropolis and although he could not enter with us, there was plenty of information at the site. He was personable and his English was excellent. We highly recommend Nektarios for private tour of Athens.

It should be 6 stars!! A fabulous day in Athens. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. All major sights with sufficient time given at each place. The digital briefing on Nektarios' iPad prepared us for each walk about. His recommendation for lunch was outstanding!

Nektarios met us at our hotel right on time with a very nice, clean car. He explained what he planned to show us and we asked for a few adjustments. He was happy to comply. Throughout the tour he gave us loads of interesting information about Athens, the locations we were visiting, and Greece in general. His English was excellent and he was a very enjoyable companion. Near the end of the tour he took us for lunch at one of his favorite, non-tourist restaurants for a delicious lunch.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your kind words. I hope to meet you again soon.

Nektarios was a joy to be around. His knowledge and enthusiasm about Athens was inspiring. He maintained a pace that was tailored to our needs. He was very helpful in directing us to a true Greek lunch. That was so enjoyable. His assistance cannot be overly complimented. When in Athens, please use Nektarios for memories of the city and its people that will last forever.

Fantastic does not begin to describe our experience with Nektarios. He was knowledgeable, accommodating and professional. The sights were inspiring and we culminated the tour with an incredible Hreek lunch and wonderful Greek wine — all suggested by Nektarios at our request. We definitely be using Tours By Locals in the future. Nektarios is an awesome representative.

Nektarios was a great driver and guide on our tour to Delphi. We had an amazing day driving through the Greek mountains north of Athens. Our time at the Hosios Loukas Monastery and spectacular Delphi made for a marvellous day. Our late lunch at a new Delphi restaurant was perfect - the view and the food.

I rate this tour 5 stars and would award Nektarios more stars if I could. Besides being extremely informative and accommodating he exhibited a warm and friendly personality. It was like being given a tour with an old friend or relative. It was a most thoroughly enjoyable experience. Bravo!

Vivacious and informative, Nektarios kept us entertained while, school teacher that he is, encouraging us to learn all we could about Greece. He tried hard to make our experience comfortable ... providing an umbrella when it looked like rain... an extra jacket when the temperature dropped and more ice water than we could drink. Our favourite memory is probably his personal anecdotes which gave us a rich understanding of current Greek culture and his tales of mythology on the ride home.

What a wonderful experience. Nektarios was so knowledgeable and proud to share that knowledge with total strangers. He went out of his way to pick a route that offered as many sites and stopping points as possible. He is so kind entertaining and either really enjoys what he does or he is a marvelous actor :) you have a real gem and because of him we will be recommending him and Tour by Locals to our friends. Thank you

Nektarios took four of us New Yorkers on a half day tour of Athens today. We had a great time! Nektarios was very knowledgeable and accommodating (and funny) and provided us with a wealth of information. We saw everything, learned a lot, and had a delicious authentic Greek lunch. If you only are staying a short time in Athens as we are, Tours by Locals, and especially Nektarios is the way to go!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words. I hope to meet you again soon.

Nektarios met us at the cruise port and became our expert guide for the day. We probably saved an hour waiting in various lines because he knows where to go. For instance, the line to buy tickets for Acropolis hill was easily a half hour wait but he took us to the ticket office the tourists don't see and there was no line. He tailored the tour to fit what we wanted to see and do. He is a wealth of knowledge about Greek history, culture and architecture and he is a lot of fun to tour with.

If we could give Niktorios a rating higher than 5 we would do so. We have been on many tours by locals tours over the years and this was far and away among the very best. Niktorios was most concerned about our having a positive experience and about sharing his knowledge with us. It was a day we will long remember.

Necktarios was a great professional guide and driver - giving us the historical and archaeological description of amazing Athens and Greece. Terrifically navigated Athens and revealed the best spots for us to truly experience the city. Nectkarios arranged an amazing local traditional lunch - so much wonderful food - a spot that we could have never found ourselves. He arranged a very experienced and knowledgeable guide for the Acropolis which was essential to our visit. Took us to airport also. Lovedhim!
