Sightseeing spots in Athens

Sightseeing is one of the elements that makes a trip gain some perspective. A trip is supposed to entertain, relax but also broaden the visitor's mental and image horizons. Therefore, sightseeing in should be on the top of your things to do in Athens list. What is more, sightseeing combines your sensory input on the monuments with your personal experience. As a result, you will create once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Apart from the obvious choices such as Acropolis, sightseeing in Athens includes miscellaneous options. While the heart of the city is drawing all the spotlights, Athens outskirts are also worth your attention. The mountain of Ymittos can be a great place to take artistic pictures while you enjoy some fresh air and a wonderful view over the city.

A customized trip with Chris

I Highly recommend Chris as a guide and private driver. On time, very good communication prior to and during the trip....and he help customized our trip to blend our expectations with his expertise. I was one traveler with 4 ladies and Chris was patient, kind,haf great energy and an absolute gentlemen. From major sights to hidden gems, to off the beaten track, Christ new it all and showed us everything that was promised and more. To top it off he recommended a resturant where I had the best authentic Greek chicken dish I HAVE EVER HAD. During my meal I had a desire for mint tea which was not on the menu and Chris literally went and plucked some fresh mint for me and found me a lovely mountain tea off menu. This is truly who he is. His hospitality and kindness made my trip. Please choose Chris. I know we will again.

Vintage Fiat 500 Athens Tour

Whether you are in Athens for several weeks or just a day or two, we highly highly highly recommend adding Theodore’s Fiat tour to your must-do list. Driving through the streets of Athens with this expert driver and enthusiastic tour giver is a very special way to see parts of the city you might miss otherwise.
The three hours we spent in Theodore’s care included time in several interesting neighborhoods, a scenic hike, several stops for unbeatable Athens pictures, plus a really fabulous coffee at a local cafe.
His carefully built itinerary includes expected sites and beauty, as well as areas typical tours might not showcase. He is knowledgeable about his city, happy to share personal insights about local culture, and a very good driver in the crazy Athens traffic. My friend and I will always remember this unique experience and his exquisite hospitality.

A customized trip with Phevos

Phevos gave us an awesome tour through Exchargia. We had so many questions and he was very patient and knowledgeable to answer all our questions. He even joined us later for a greek coffee, which was also a lot of fun. Totally personalized tour, guided by our interests and took us to places that we would definitely not have gone by ourselves. Thanks Phevos! Na sai Kala
