Tour: Full Day Athens and Ancient Cor,..., Athens, Attiki, Greece
Date: Jun 3, 2011

We had a good trip to Corinth and Athens with Vassilis. He is very proud of his home country and loves to talk about the history of Greece. He managed to get us to the right places ahead of the crowds. Excellent driver. I would have given this five stars except for the fact that we were not told in advance that Vassilis is a driver but not a licensed guide. He was not able to go with us into some of the ancient sites in the two cities. Nice man who cares about his passengers. Timothy from the US.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is very clear at my profile that driver guides is prohibited to enter the sites only licensed guides are able to enter the sites in Greece and the price for a full day tour it is EXTRA 250 euros. (There are NO Licensed Guides who can drive a legal car for private tours)

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Greece is very strict about who can and cannot give tours inside the ancient sites. Vassilis does state this clearly on his profile, but not on all the tour descriptions - we've asked him to do that.
