Dimitris did a great job! He arrived promptly and was accommodating for our group of six. His van was clean and was perfect for our group. His itinerary gave us a great tour of Athens. We loved his videos before going to a site. It increased our understanding of the site and the history. He also had a good command of the history of the city. He spoke English very well and was easily understood. He navigated the very busy traffic well. We would recommend Dimitris.

A superb tour. Dimitris adapted the tour beautifully to take into account my limited mobility. yet I was still able to see and photograph the major sites. (even the Acropolis) The changing of the guard was an experience, I have never seen anything like it. This guide comes highly recommended

Very flexible & accommodating; very professional.
Dimitris provided an excellent tour in the comfort of a nice MERCEDES van. He’s very knowledgeable and passionate about his home city of Athens and we thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour. Our only complaint was he wasn’t able to enter the archeological sites with us however he did provide a 3D animated video explanation prior to entering.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, however, you already knew that I cannot follow you in the archaeological sites. Pay more attention to what you read next time.

Ours was a complicated tour: Six people who'd just got off a 12-day cruise with tons of luggage We asked for a highlights tour of Athens and a traditional Tacerna lunch, all in five hours. Demitris delivered. Not only was he prompt, he was personable and proved knowledgeable of the city, its history and culture. Oh, and let me add patient. He answered scores and scores of questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Athens, thanks to Dimitris. We'd highly recommend him.
Dimitris started was a bit late picking us up at the cruise port. He did apologize and from then on he was very knowledgable and entertained us with historical facts. Very informative and helpful and he even drove us to the top of a high mountain to overlooking the entire Athens city. Great tour! Thanks Dimitris
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel sad that I got 1 unfair less star for being late for serious reasons since I informed about my delay in advance, however, I feel happy that I contributed to a joyful touring experience.

Dimitris did a great job of preparing us for the sites we visited, changing the schedule to suit our tastes as we went. Very important, as the day before, we had been on a full day excursion from cruise ship, but did not know exactly where we would be and for how long. Very friendly and professional!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for you appreciation.

Dimitris picked us up from our cruise ship. He was very knowledgable about the city and the historic past of Greece which fitted into the places we were visiting. He spoke excellent English and was a great character. At lunch time Dimitris took us to a typical local Greek restaurant which we enjoyed thoroughly. Would have had more time at the Acropolis if we could have pre-booked tickets as the queues were very long. If ever in Athens again we would book Dimitris for another tour.

I recommend this half day tour with transfer to the airport for anyone disembarking from a cruise ship in Athens and flying out that same afternoon. We saw all the highlights of Athens and Dimitris is an excellent guide. His english is great and he answered all our questions! Just wish we had more time in Athens!

We had such a great experience on our tour of Athens with Dimitris. We learned a lot about Athens as he drove us all over town in a very comfortable vehicle and allowed plenty of time to see the popular sights. My wife has special needs and Dimitris was truly hospitable. He made sure my wife was comfortable and had to exert as little energy as possible, which is difficult to do when visiting the Acropolis. Thank you, Dimitris!
The tour is called Tours by Locals, they are so professional, the vehicle was spotless, mini van. There was 4 of us on the tour and Dimitris was very knowledgeable ,and his english was very good What we wanted to see is where he took us. Our only problem was that is was too short. We highly recommend this company and driver. It was easy to contact the company. We truly enjoyed Athens with Dimitris

Dimitris was a five star guide. Our family of five loved him. He was waiting for us on arrival at the airport and took us to all the best places. After every destination he was waiting for us and even gave us a cell phone to contact him while we were inside the museums. It was a fantastic experience! Thank you for a trip of a lifetime.
Mary KuhlmannUnited States
Dimitris was a wonder tour guide in Athens. He met us right on time and made sure we saw everything we wanted to see - including having a beer at a little bar on the water with the locals.
Vonda H.Mooresville, NC, United States
LOVED seeing Athens with Dimitris! He picked us up at the airport and whisked us around Athens in short order. We were able to fit in many sites, and all of the best places in just under 3 hours, then it was off to the airport for our flight home. Thanks for a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was impressed by my skills that day :D ! Thank you so very much!!!
We loved our tour with Dimitris! He is very knowledgeable about history and facts and that helped with visiting the sites. Although he did not visit the historical sites with us, he had a detailed presentation with his tablet before we exited to the sites. We felt that this was better for our comprehension and we could take the time we needed depending on our interests. Usually you have to follow the guide but this way you can concentrate and stay longer where you want. His english is very good.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate your positive thoughts for my work. Thanks!

The guide told us that nothing was opened because of holiday when in fact found many stores open at the Agora. Shopping is a must for many tourists. He drove us over to see the changing of the guards and we missed it. thankyou
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so sorry you were so disappointed but what I said was true. In our national celebration day there is no change of the guards because all the central areas are closed. Also if you check the description of the tour you you will see that the agora is not part of the half day tour because you need at least two hours to explore it. As for shopping (which is not part of the half day tour because the tour is only 4 1/2 hours) it was true that the shops were closed, except from the touristy shops.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We got in touch with Ken and then he realized that he arrived on Athens on a National holiday so there was nothing the guide could do regarding shopping. The area manager is aware of the review and working with the guide to identify what went wrong and how to improve it in the future.
