My son and I had a great great time with Dimitri. Thanks for sharing him with us! If ever we make it back to Greece, we will surely look you up!!!

Hello Potoula!
We had a wonderful time the day we were in Athens. We couldn't have asked for a better driver. Dimitris was perfect with timing and his recommendations. He was kind and knowledgeable and I love that he got us to the Acropolis before anyone else. That all by itself was worth it! By the time we left, it was very crowded. I think I left positive feedback on trip advisor, if I haven't done it yet, I will soon. If we ever do that cruise again, I will definitely be in touch!!

Thanks again,
Suzanne Fox

Dear Potoula,
Thank you so very much for a lovely tour yesterday. Demetrius is an excellent driver and extremely knowledgeable with Greek history -- we learned so much from him. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Athens and thanks to Demetrius who made it so. Thanks again Potoula for all your arrangements. We will highly recommend your company to our friends who might be travelling to Athens.


The weather in Athens was once again beautiful. I enjoyed the tour I went on with Paul and Dimitris M. so much in September that I set up a tour for me and about 58 other people for this port stop. Our group filled four vehicles so Paul?s son Dimitris K and Dimitris M.?s father Vasilli also guided our group. I emailed back and forth with Paul?s wonderful daughter Potoula for a couple months while setting the four vans up. They are a wonderful family company who are excellent ambassadors for their city. The ship was delayed a little bit getting clearance to disembark customers but I could see Dimitris M. and Paul through the windows. It was so exciting to see them again as soon as we could leave the ship. It was also wonderful to meet Dimitris K and Vasilli. All four of them are so sweet and were happy to tell us all about their beautiful city. I rode in Paul?s van the first time and despite certain people (ahem Joanne) hehe?. picking on Dimitris the previous six weeks, Dimitris let me ride in his van?and not even in the trunk! I enjoyed Paul?s presentation of his city on the first trip and I enjoyed Dimitris? presentation this time. They both love their city and were passionate in their explanations about the history of Athens. The Acropolis was amazing once again and I could see additional work that was being done on the site this time around. I took less pictures this time because I had excellent pictures from the previous visit. I just wanted to take the time to take it all in and enjoy my time there. I have a lot of pictures in the Athens album from September if you didn?t see them. I also had a couple people in our group who were older or had injuries who I wanted to keep an eye on. Everyone had a great time and were really happy with our guides. I wasn?t able to go to the Museum in Athens last time because of the belly demon, but I was able to go this time. My stomach was throwing a fit this day too unfortunately so I relaxed instead of going to a couple of the other sites in order to ?save? it for the museum. I was just grateful to get to be there again?the belly demon can give and the belly demon can take away haha. The museum was so amazing with all of the beautifully restored artifacts. There were some re-creations but most of the museum contained original pieces. The coolest part of the museum was the glass floor outside that you could walk across and look into an excavation area. There was also a video playing on a monitor that showed how the pieces are brought to the museum to be cleaned and then put up in the museum for the public to enjoy. There was no photography in most of the museum. Of course, eventually it was time to say goodbye to the Greek Taxi guys. It was a blessing to have the opportunity to take tours with them not once but twice and I hope I get to see Paul, the Dimitris, Vasilli and Potoula one day soon. Eight hours just wasn?t enough. There is so much more to Athens that I didn?t get to see, but hopefully will someday. If you or someone that you know are going to Athens, look these wonderful people up. My friends know that I am all for supporting small family businesses and this family will always have a place in my heart."

Wow! Our tour with Dimetrius in Corinth and Athens was a real highlight of our time in Europe this past month! We needed a tape recorder to begin to remember and appreciate all the information that Demitrius shared with us! It was really an enjoyable day! What a memory of events, history and dates he has!! And to see so much!! Even the Prime Minister! Give Demitrius a great big THANK YOU from all four of us! We would certainly recommend this tour to others!!!!

Hi Dimitri
It's Breezie. We're back home and back to the grind of everyday life. We want to deeply thank you for making our trip to Athens unforgettable. We were so concerned about the troubles in Athens and the dangers of a big city, but you made the city fascinating, exciting and welcoming. We were so sad to say goodbye. Your considerate nature, kindness and joy for life will be forever remembered as being one of the best parts of Greece. To us, you are Athens! Thank you again for the endless history lesson, the wonderful tours through your beautiful country and the laughs and experiences of the days.

Our sincerest thanks
Breezie, John and Mike

Dear Ms. Potoula,
I wanted to write sooner, but was not able to due to scarce internet availability while on our holiday. My wife and I had a WONDERFUL time in Athens, thanks mostly to Dimitris and his extensive knowledge of the city's rich history. We will be telling all of our friends about this and will put an extensive positive review on TripAdvisor so others may see how wonderful of a time we had. We definitely look ahead to when we can come again and tour with you.

Matthew King

Hello Potoula,
We had an EXCELLENT day with Dimitrios in Athens! This was the first time we ever arranged any kind of private tour so we were a bit apprehensive but as soon as we met him, he put us at ease immediately. He was friendly and knowledgeable and being with him allowed us to see everything we wanted to see, and more. He was a good and careful driver. The thing we liked the most was how obviously passionate he is about his country. It was a wonderful day and please pass along our thanks once again, to Dimitrios. I will be sure to recommend your company to anyone I know who is traveling in that area.


Hello Potoula,
We had a wonderful time in Greece and Demitris is wonderful. We are very happy with your service. We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and relatives if anyone are travelling to Greece. Out of the 6 people in our group, 2 of us are in wheelchairs and another 2 members who were wheeling got free entrance as well. We safe a lot by paying only 2 tickets instead of 6. Tks Demitris for your help and your wonderful and safe driving. May God bless you and your business.

Hello Potoula,
We have returned from our cruise and I just wanted to let you know how pleased we all were with our tour of Athens and Cape Sounion with Dimitri. It was the highlight of the cruise, and the best tour that we had. Dimitri made sure that we saw what needed to be seen, including things that we didn't even know that we needed to see. The van was very comfortable with plenty of room for our group of 8. He got us to the most popular destinations before the biggest crowds and took us to a great restaurant for lunch. Your country is beautiful and we will certainly recommend your company to anyone looking for a great tour.


Hi Potoula,
We had a fabulous time in Athens and appreciated you good service. On the way from the airport to the hotel, the driver suggested that we visit the Acropolis Museum that evening before our tour of the Acropolis the next day and it was a great suggestion that gave us much more understanding of what we were seeing there. Demetrus was a terrific tour guide and gave us many insight into Athens and its history. We also enjoyed the trip to the Temple of Poseidon and the lunch along the way. Thank you for an excellent experience.

Nancy and David Kyle

Hi Potoula,
We wanted to thank you and especially Dimitris for our tour of the Peloponnese. It was the highlight of stay in Greece. Dimitris has a thorough knowledge of the area and the history. He was able to educate us, answer all our questions, and even engage our 12 year old son. We also appreciate him taking us to Epidavros, which we hadn't originally planned on. I know we kept him late, but he was very flexible and accommodating. He has a great sense of humor and obviously loves and appreciates the Greek culture we were hoping to learn about. I just wish we had done a little better on the pop-quizzes he gave us. Again, many thanks for a wonderful experience.

Geoff, Deb and Cameron Doyle

Dear Paul an Potoula,
I can't thank you enough for the excellent service you provided us on August 1st of this year. Dimitris met us at 7:30 at our ship, Royal Caribbean with a sign bearing our name. He was personable and friendly. We had no idea of the crowds we were getting ready to endure, however he took us to the Acropolis immediately and stayed there for about an hour and 1/2, we were crowd free. We had pictures made without tourists and got to see the ruins without having to push and shove with other tourists. And what a gem you have with Athenasia! She is so knowledgeable and fun! It was a special treat to know she was an amateur photographer! Our photos are phenomenal! Going to the New Museum was a special treat we did not expect. Thanks to Dimitris, who zipped us through traffic, got us to all the special sites and we even had time to eat a fabulous Greek meal in the Plaka and shop! It couldn't have been a better day!

Thank you again,
Luanne Webb and family

Hello Potoula
We very much enjoyed our time with your brother! He was a very good guide and so very kind! He kept saying if we missed our ship your mom would have us over and feed us. He took us where he eats gyros and the kids fell in love with them! We did not have the luck to eat better gyros anywhere else on our trip to Greek islands. The little place he took us to was marvelous! Unfortunately with the heat and the fact that we were all still tired from the jet lag, we may not have given your brother the proper impression....we loved our day! Please thank Dimitrius once again for us, and also for the baklava. They were absolutely delicious! It was very kind and generous of him to buy us some! I will definitely write up a review for trip advisor. We were very impressed. Also thank Dimitrius for taking the van. The extra space in the extensive heat was much appreciated. All our best to you, your father, Paul and Dimitrius And thanks so much for everything!


Having now returned home, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for a wonderful day in Athens. Dimitris was absolutely fantastic and full of really interesting facts and figures. Without your services and the expertise of Dimitris we would not have learnt so much about your amazing Country in our short time there. Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to Dimitris - he made our trip to Athens our favourite day!!

With thanks from Les, Mel, Rosie and Joshua (Scotland)

Potoula -
We are back in the US and just wanted to email and thank you for a fantastic day in the Athens area - Dimitris was a lot of fun and gave us a wonderful tour (and lunch was excellent!) - we were very pleased and will recommend your services to friends.

Thank you again.

Hi Potoula,
Please know that we could not have been more pleased with Dimitri and the wonderful day that we spent in Athens. Dimitri was absolutely wonderful, and we enjoyed every minute and all the fun that he brought to our time there. We had four private drivers during our cruise, and Dimitri was by far our favorite!! He was so informative and flexible to our needs and we felt like he went out of his way to make our visit special. Athens was one of our favorite cities (we visited 10 total) and this was not only because it is an amazing city, but also because of Dimitri and the excellent service provided by your company! Thank you so much! Please tell him that we said hello and we talk about him to everyone who asks about our trip!!

Rachael, R.T., Trey, and Jack

Hi Potoula,
We had a wonderful time in Greece and really enjoyed our tour. Dimitri did a wonderful job and was by far the most knowledgable guide we had on our tour. It was an experience we will never forget. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know traveling to Greece. Thank you for all your help!!!!


Hello -
Thank you so much for all of your help in organizing our day in Athens. Dimitrius was fantastic! It was an amazing day! He took us to some fantastic spots in the city, set us up with a great lunch, took us to see the Sunday changing of the guard, and even stopped for Baklava and Starbucks for us! I cannot express enough how great everything turned out that day, and how wonderful of a guide he was for us. Thank you again! You can be sure if we are back in Greece, we will be contacting you!

Stacey Kuhn

Potoula and Paul,
We had a marvelous day in Athens. Dimitrios was a great driver and very knowledgable about history of Athens and Greece. He got us in and out of sights quickly and gave us nformation about all our visits. Thank you for providing us with such great service. We will encourage others to use your company in the future. And, tell them to ask for Dimitrios for the best day in Athens.

Ron Rogers

Hi Potoula
We just landed back yesterday. We really had a great time. Dimitris was great support. One I get some time I will put comments on trip advisor and you can be sure that I will recommend my friends for the same :).


Hi. We really enjoyed our tour. Dimitris was an excellent driver and he timed things perfectly so that we were right on time to watch the changing of the guards without having to wait in the heat. Yota was a very good guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Athens despite the sweltering heat! Thanks to Dimitris for having cold water and wifi available in the van! I will post something to tripadvisor and cruisecritic as soon as I have time.

June, 2012

Dear Potoula,
Thank you for making our stay in Athens so enjoyable! Dimitris and Athanasia were both fantastic, and Paul gave us a warm welcome as well. Have a good week and thanks once again!

Warm regards,

Thank you so much for arranging all the transfers and the tour! Demitrios was a great tour guide and the hotel in Nafplion was perfect. We will recommend your company to others and be sure to contact you on our next visit to Geece.


Dimitri was an excellent tour guide for our 1 day in Athens. He picked us up promptly at the port and delivered nothing short of excellence. He knows his history and gets you to the sites before the crowds hit. His recommendation for lunch was excellent, along with his recommendation on our 1 day tour. I would highly recommend this company for your touring in Athens and the surrounding area.

These guys were a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. Paul responded to our emails quickly and booking was smooth. When our ship's arrival date in Athens was changed at the last minute I emailed him and it was not a problem - was sorted immediately and our alternate date was booked and organised. We arrived at the terminal & Demetrius was there to greet us with a smile. He was such a lovely guy and we enjoyed the day we spent with him. We were taken firstly to the Acropolis - beating the tour buses & crowds then on to lots of other interesting sites. Demtrius was a wealth of information about Greek history and we learned so much about the places we visited. He took us to this great place for lunch where we enjoyed a warm welcome and fantastic Greek food. He got us to all the places we wanted to visit and back to our ship in plenty of time. I would highly recommend their services to anyone visiting Athens. Congratulations Paul & Demetrius on providing such an outstanding tour service.

I would highly recommend this service for anyone interested in taking a tour of Athens or needing a transfer to the airport. Dimitrius was waiting for us at the port as we embarked from our cruise with a very nice airconditioned Mercedes van, had cold water for us and proceeded to explain the tour and information about Athens. His knowledge of Greece is surperb and he very efficently took on to the highlights of the city arriving for the changing of the guards within 5 minutes. In a short period of time we saw alot of Athens, got dropped off at the airport and had a great lesson on Greece. This would be on my must do list for visiting Athens.

I decided to book a tour based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. After reading the reviews my expectations were high. Amazingly, the tour far exceeded my expectations. We took the tour with Dimitris, Paul's son. Dimitris was fantastic. He's quite probably the most knowledgeable and friendly tour guide I've ever had. The tour started with an early pick up at the port from a Royal Caribbean cruise. The departure time was early, but perfectly timed as Dimitris got us up to the Parthenon while it was still relatively empty. We had the whole place to ourselves. By the time we left, it was packed and far less enjoyable. Then we were off to several other sites including the Temple of Zeus, the original olympic stadium, the changing of the guards, a vista overlooking all of Athens, and the amazing New Acropolis museum. Then, we started our journey to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion. On the way we stopped for lunch at a fantastic restaurant recommended by Dimitris. The drive to the Cape was gorgeous as was the temple of Poseidon. He got us back to the boat with time to spare. The entire trip was incredibly enjoyable and comfortable. The minibus was a brand new mercedes mini van that was beautiful. He even had Wifi on board, which was very helpful after a week on the cruise without great Internet. I couldn't recommend this tour more. It was the highlight of our weeklong trip to Italy, Greece, and Turkey.

Do not take cruise tour instead hire Athens Minibus Private Day Tours; Demetrius drove us to both Acropolis and Corinth for one day and it was worth it. It was a lot better than paying the cruise ship excursion. We saw few places that the cruise excursion would not have time to taken us to. There were only four of us and our tour guide have more time in taking us to exclusive places; at first we were scared because we didn't know Paul or Demetrius but they are very nice people. Demetrius could not take us in the sites but he told us good Greek & Roman history plus they have arranged a licensed tour guide for us and he is very knowledgeable. My kids connected with Demetrius and when we got back on the ship my kids were telling me that they missed Demetrius. I didn't have enough of Greece so most likely I will be back and definitely look for either Paul or Demetrius. i highly recommend this company...

We just returned last night. Out last flight was delayed due to weather for over 2 hours but everything went very smoothly and even though we were over 30 hours getting back, we are not feeling too tired as yet. I cannot tell you how thrilled we were with your services and the guides, we are only sorry that we did not get to meet you personally. Greece is a lovely country and one that I would love to visit again. The history was fascinating and we all enjoyed the knowledge of Nick and Dimetrios. Our travel agent here is considering organizing a group tour next year and I will certainly be recommending your services. Once again, thank you very much.

Tom and Shelley

We had a wonderful tour of Athens with Dimitris. He was very knowledgable and told us all the great mythology of Greece. The vehicle was top notch too! Dimitris knew the right roads to take to avoid traffic to make the most of our day with him. We highly recommend AthensMinibus or GreekTaxi for anyone traveling to the area.

We used the Athens Minibus company when we arrived in Athens airport from France to get us (7 friends) to the Piraeus port where we had to catch a ferry for Paros Island. The driver knew it was quite tight to get us there as we did not leave enough time between the flight and the ferry. The driver was waiting for us at the airport and got us there on time, safely and nicely. We were very happy to catch our boat and it was a good start to our holidays. Very nice manners and drive for a good price. Thanks Paul :-)))))


We had a great time in Athens with Dimitrius. We have a group of 10 and were driven around in a luxurious minibus! Dimitrius took us around to all the sites he promised with great timing and we were always ahead of the tour buses. We hardly wasted any time waiting! He even has WI FI that give you free internet access while on the road. We were so glad that we had Dimitrius as our guide!

Hi Paul,
Just a little note to thank you and your lovely drivers for your wonderful service! We are truly impressed, especially with what is happening with your beautiful country, and yet you continued to provide such excellent and reliable service. Will definitely sing your praises and will refer you to all our friends and relatives. Once again, many, many thanks.

We enjoyed the tour very much! It was good to see the Acropolis at our own pace, with a knowledgeable guide. What an interesting place to visit! I am so glad that my daughter found your website, and that you were able to reschedule us after the cruise line changed the date that we docked in Athens.

With thanks for your service,
Alice Martin 

We were on a cruise with a friend, his daughter and son-in-law and their two teenage boys. We decided that it would be more economical to use Athens Taxi than to book excursions off the ship. It was perfect, our mini bus looked like new, we weren't crowded at all (everyone got great pics, since everyone had a window & aisle seat). It was great to have the advise of a local as to where to go and when. We got to the Acropolis early and it was sooooo crowded when we were leaving. We really had a great time. We'll definitely use them again if we go back and would recommend them without hesitation!

We work since 2010 with the services of Paul and Dimitris and we are very pleased with them. A couple of times per year we organise trainings for Dutch doctors in Greece; they are very happy with the offered transfers in the perfect Mercedes Sprinter, as well as the guide and driving skills of Dimitris

Hi Paul,
I am just getting caught up on messages, since our return home. I must tell you that the day with your son will remain a very happy cherished memory in our minds for many years (or as long as an old mind can remember). We had a great time. Please tell him that when I got home and told my kids about the creature we saw and could not remember the name for, they all (even the seven year old grandson) laughed at me and told me it was a Griffen, NOT, as I thought, a phenix. So much for what we know. Thank you so much again for the wonderful day. Please remind him that we were serious about demanding he spend time with us if and when he makes it to Canada. He has made friends of us for sure. We even have an apartment here he can stay in for free.

Dale and Judy

All 10 of us on the Athens tour yesterday had a marvelous time. Your son Demitrius was a perfect host for our visit, a very good driver, and well informed on the history, culture, and all other aspects of the area. We could not have asked for more. I am thankful that we arranged our tour with your company.


It was a great pleasure to have transfers and tour service from Your company. Special thaks to You and Your son for the great night tour and special service on sunday morning. Without Your attention we might still be in Athens. I can warmly recommend Your services to all our friends and families.

May 13, 14 and 15

Dear Paul,
Thank you very very much for convincing me to use your service. It was by far the best way for us to enjoy our day in Athens. We adored Demitrius. I just got home last night and later this week I plan on posting on trip advisor and cruise critic what a great service you provide.

Thanks for everything.

Hey there! We are now back in Canada and settling back into the joys of working again, and I'm getting lots of cuddles from my kids! A month was a long time to be gone, but so worth it and much needed! I would like to thank you for helping to arrange such a GREAT day for us. We had absolutely no complaints with Demetri. He was so knowledgeable about Athens history and all the sites we went to, his driving was absolutely the best out off all the places we went and he was very fun and easy to get along with!!! Athens was one of our favorite places that we went too, and a big part of this is because of the tour that we had! Thank you SO much!!!! We will be writing reviews on Cruise Critic and Trip Advisor shortly! We are also wondering if Demetri would be able to send us a picture of himself? I'm sure this sounds very odd, but we forgot to get a picture with him at the end of the tour. We have pictures of all the people that made our trip special, those from tours as well as those on the ship. He definitely made our trip special!! Again Thank you!!!!

Hi Paul,
We are back in the US after a very nice time in Greece with our family. Your son was a very good driver and we enjoyed all the information he provided as we drove along. The guide in Delphi was wonderful. We want to visit your home in Sparta and have your home made olive oil! Your son said we could come anytime! It was lovely to celebrate Easter in Greece. You have a lovely country.

April 19 and 20

Hi Paul,
We four senior women had a memorable day in Athens with Demetrius. We hesitated booking a private rather than a ship's tour but at the end of the day were so glad that we had. Traveling to the many Athens' sites by car was so efficient and personalized. Demetrius was at the port early so we reached the Acropolis before the bus tours - ahead of the throngs of tourists. We had friendly, quick service of authentic Greek food at a restaurant recommended by Demetrius and even managed to spend time in the spectacular New Acropolis Museum. We saw much more in our limited 7 hours than we could have done by coach. We felt safe and comfortable throughout the tour and were back at the ship in good time. We have been and will continue to recommend your company.

We had a great time. By the time we got to Greece we were all a bit tired and "ruined out" but Dimitrias was flexible and took us to the spots we wanted to see and gave us a great coastal tour at the end. We enjoyed our time with him and would recommend Him and your company.


We are now safely home and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Your services, from you personally to your son were top notch and praised by everyone. Thanks for your professionalism and hospitality.

We had a great time. Thanks so much. I'll pass your name along whenever I hear someone going to Athens. I think I'll miss our e-mails!! Take care and thanks again.

Dear Paul,
This is to let you know how very much we enjoyed our Meteora tour with your delightful son, Dimitrius. He could not have been more knowledgeable about history or more courteous and friendly and we would recommend him to absolutely everyone who is interested in tours of Athens or other areas of Greece. We actually laughed and talked like old friends and were very thankful that he could easily and interestingly answer any of our historical questions WITHOUT going into long, obviously memorized lengthy speeches and facts that have frankly bored us on other tours in other places. He geared his answers to OUR interests and actually seemed to make our specific wants and desires his goal to achieve. And he did! When we were getting ready to tour one of the monasteries in Meteora (a once-in-a-lifetime experience for sure, it was glorious!) he offered to drive on to the next one and check on closing times for us, since it was bad weather our first day there. He laid out a perfect trip for us in every detail, even calling our airlines to confirm our next day departure. If anyone wants to see Greece with the help of a friendly, cheerful, knowledgeable Greek who tailors the tour around your individual desires and has no longwinded memorized speeches, we recommend Dimitrius (or you, of course!) as the perfect solution. He is a gem!

Dear Paul,
We had a fantastic time today exploring Athens and Dimitrius was a gracious tour guide. Thank you again and please pass this on to Dimitrius as well.

Kind Regards,

Hi Paul!
We made it back! Our trip was magical, and we thank you for your professional service. Your son is a delight and we enjoyed his professional and pleasant manner. We will call on you again. Sorry that we did not get to see you this time around but maybe next time. Have a wonderful fall..

Best to you,
July 24, 25 and 30, 2010

Thanks Paul - - we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Demetrius! He was great!!!! A wealth of information and just a great guy!!!! Will call on you for our next Athens/Greece trip, which I hope will be not too much in the distant future!!!

July 11, 2011

It has been a long time since our tour with Demetrius (hope I have spelled his name correctly!)... I kept meaning to write but life gets crazy. I did want to say that we had a wonderful time and everything worked out perfectly. He was so charming and accommodating of our interests. Even though our time in Athens was cut short because of cruise itinerary change, the morning we spent there was one of the highlights of our cruise -- due in large part to the efficiency and helpfulness of our driver! I've attached a couple of pictures from our trip (Demetrius explaining what we're seeing... unfortunately, not a very clear day... and a picture of our family that Demetrius took for us). Thanks again -- we will recommend your company if we know of anyone visiting Athens... and will be sure to book with you again the next time we are able to visit your beautiful country.

July 1, 2010

Hi Paul,
Just returned home from our wonderful cruise and I want to tell you how much we all enjoyed Athens and your tour and all your excellent advice!! Both the kids and the adults enjoyed the sightseeing and decided we learned enough from your very knowledgeable and delightful son that we didn't need a special guide!! If you need any references please feel free to use my name.

All the best,
June 17 and 18, 2010

Dear Paul....
Sorry for the delayed response, but we just got back from London yesterday. I wanted to let you know that we were very pleased to have your wonderful son escort us on a delightful trip around Athens. We saw a great many sights and learned a lot about your wonderful country. I'm sure you hear this all the time, but your son is a terrific young man. He was polite, pleasant, and extremely knowledgeable. (and my wife thought he was quite handsome!) You should be very proud of him, and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you. As we say in America, the apple never falls far from the tree. It is quite obvious that you have a warm and supportive family, blessed with a wonderful work ethic and tremendous character. Thanks for making our trip to Athens something very special.... and if you or your family ever come to Austin, Texas please contact me and I will return the favor. Take care.... and once again, Thanks!

Hi Paul,
We had a good time with your son, Jim. Unfortunately one couple had to fly back home due to a family member's death. So, we ended with 8 people tour instead of 10. We all liked your son and think you might have done a great job by raising him in Greece instead of in US. Wish we knew more about your family story. It must be interesting. Hope Jim will have a vacation in US soon. Thank you for a great service from our first email contact. I will have no problem to introduce the service of your company to anyone who wants to visit Athens in the future. Attached is a picture of me and your son, the tall and handsome Jim.

May 2011

Hi Paul,
You were right we did have a memorable day in Athens, we thoroughly enjoyed the day with your son. He was really nice & so knowledgable & a very safe driver. I was so pleased we decided to go up to Cape Sounion, it was a great day & we still had plenty of time for the Acropolis & Plaka & even the changing of the guard which we had not planned. That was something else. Thank you also for your fast responses to my emails. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.

May 14, 2010

We want to commend your son for the wonderful day he gave us and our companions. He was very well informed and fluent but best of all he was pleasant to be with. It could not have been better. I am sure you are very proud of him.

Dear Paul,
Wanted to drop you a thank you for such a incredibly great and professional service! I wish all our transfers were as hassle-free and 100% reliable as yours! The long drive to Kamena Vourla with Jim was very smooth and incredibly scenic! We thoroughly enjoyed that ride, and Jim was very kind and patient with all of us chatty Indonesians who kept asking him 1001 questions! Please send my thanks and warmest regards to Jim, and also to Kostas, who really pulled through driving us on a quickie tour across Athens when we're really only supposed to go from Agios Konstantinos straight to the airport. We're so glad we finally did get to see Athens, even if it was only for a very short time, and we have you and Kostas to thank for willing to take the extra time and effort to make our silly wish (of passing through Athens when we have a flight to catch in just few hours' time) come true! Kostas was very friendly and funny, and he kept us laughing all the way through. What a great guy! One thing for sure, I love Greece to bits and will definitely come back again SOON, and when I do... you know I'll be knocking on your door again! Thanks again for everything!

Best Regards,

Thank you so very much Paul! You, Marco, and your son were AMAZING! I enjoyed my time in Greece immensely and you guys are top notch. Send my well wishes to your son and Marco for me!

Best to you all,

Hi Paul,
We just wanted to write to thank you and Dimitri for all the fantastic attention, advance preparation, and assistance in planning our day in Athens. I especially want to rave about Dimitri and the spectacular tour he took us on April 13, 2010. We had ample time at each location without feeling rushed and he was so knowledgeable and fun to spend time with. It is obvious how proud he is of Athens, it's history, and the many sights in and around town. Not only did we see all of the sights we had requested, but Dimitri showed us some more of the area that we hadn't uncovered in our research! It was great to eat at an outdoor cafe, stroll the streets of Plaka and souvenier shop, and watch the changing of the guards away from the crowds. We definitely enjoyed the Acropolis, Lycabettous Hill, and the Tower of the Winds. The Acropolis Museum is so well done and a great way to fully understand the complexities of the monuments and historic times. We thoroughly enjoyed our short time in Athens and owe it all to our new friend! Shall our paths bring us back to Athens, (and we hope they do!) we will definitely call to see if Dimitri is available to spend the day with us again!

Thank you so much.

Dear Paul,
Now that we are finally home (big snow in D.C. delayed our getting home for 3 days), I wanted to take a moment to tell you what a great tour of Athens we had with Jim on Jan. 28. As I'm sure you know, our ship was delayed in arriving in Piraeus because of a medical evacuation off the coast of Italy followed by rough seas that slowed our progress. Although we docked in Piraeus shortly before 2PM, Greek authorities took about an hour to clear the ship, by which time it was too late for anyone to enter the Acropolis. NCL added an hour to the Jade's departure from Greece, giving us not quite 5 hours for a tour. Jim did a fantastic job in that short time, showing us as much as possible and pretty much covering the planned itinerary (except, of course, that we could not enter the Acropolis, which was not his fault). Eileen and I are absolutely confident that no one on the ship could have seen any more of Athens that day than we did. And, on top of all that, Jim was absolutely delightful. I would not hesitate to recommend your services for a tour, and I will post a review on Cruise Critic. Thank you both for a wonderfully memorable day.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. Between flight delays, missed connections and lost baggage, my girlfriend and I had a really tough time traveling to Athens. After the airline mess we had been through, it was such a delight to see Dimitri at the airport waiting for us. He was extremely courteous, informative on Greece and Athens and was a great pleasure to talk to. Thanks to you and Dimitri for a terrific experience. We had an amazing time in Greece and can't wait to come back in the near future.

Best Wishes,

Dear Paul:
I am sorry I didn't reply earlier, but I received your email about an hour before leaving, and was too excited to notice that you had requested a read receipt. I wanted to email you anyway, and tell you that both your drivers that we had in Athens on Oct. 10 and Oct. 11th, were wonderful! Jimmy picked us up at the airport and the drive to our hotel was fun and informative, thanks to him. He and my husband had a great chat about football (or soccer, as we say!). Marcos (I hope I am spelling his name right) picked us up at the hotel (Athens Gate) the next day, and gave us a wonderful, personalized tour, before taking us to the cruise ship Azamara. Marcos was a fountain of information, and such a pleasant, affable young man. I can't begin to tell you how good he was at showing us the wonderful highlights of your beautiful city. You are very fortunate to have such good employees, who our excellent ambassadors for your company, and your country. You are all very professional!We will highly recommend your company and its excellent service, if we know of anyone going to Athens.

Once again, Efharisto!

Aloha Paul and Demetrios
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the day we spent in Athens with Demetrios. We were able to see so much in one day, and in a beautiful car driven very safely I might add! Demetrios was kind and considerate, plus knowledgeable and fun! A true gentleman. We would certainly recommend your company to friends. Our day in Athens was a highlight of our cruise!

Dear Jimmy (and Paul),
Thank you so much for a fabulous day in Athens. We had such a great time and saw so much! Jimmy was a wealth of knowledge regarding the history of all the places and such an expert at getting around on those narrow streets. Also, very patient waiting for us to finish shopping in the Plaka. It was pretty incredible how much we saw and did in one day, including a very special lunch. Truly, it didn't matter that the pork wasn't wrapped in the pita as we had expected - it was very very good. I will certainly recommend your services to others and I will also write a review for as soon as things settle back to normal. We experienced some weather problems aboard ship during our return to Barcelona which resulted in missed flights, an extra night in Barcelona, and not getting home until last night. Still, it was a wonderful time and we all feel blessed to have been able to take such a trip.

Thank you again.

Greetings Paul,
YES!! We had a wonderful day in Athens with Dimitri!!!! He is a very polite, professional, witty & knowledgeable young man & we very much enjoyed spending the day with him & having him show us around. We felt like we got a very good overview of Athens and Dimitri did a wonderful job telling us a bit about the history as well as shedding some light on the modern day life of Athens. As I mentioned before, I booked my parents & their friends with you last year & they also had a very enjoyable experience. All of us will definitely keep you in mind if we are ever lucky enough to return to Athens!! I will happily book future clients with you as well!! :) Thank you again...please send our regards to Dimitri and thank him again for us!

Dear Paul:
I had intended to write to you sooner indicating our 100% satisfaction with the service Jim gave us on our tour of Athens, but we both had jet lag bad and also got colds, not to forget all the unpacking we had to do. We were pleased with all Jim showed us, but the knowledge that he gave us of what we were about to see, made the biggest difference. We loved that he didn't put us on a deadline, but let us do it at our pace and we for the most part, took his recommended timeline and it worked perfectly. I cannot think of anything negative or would change about our day with Athens Taxi. We have already spoken to our travel agent and told her to not hesitate to recommend your services and she informed me that she would and had a honeymoon couple looking for a private tour of Athens. I hope they take her recommendation. Our trip was a dream and our last stop was everything and more we expected of Athens. Please pass on to Jim our thanks. We think he is a really wonderful person and guide. If we are ever your way again, we will certainly take advantage of your service.

With warmest regards and thanks, we remain yours truly,

Dear Paul,
Ben, Sam, and I want to thank you for arranging such a special tour for us this August. Your son, Dimitrius, was absolutely the best guide we could have asked for! We miss his smiling face and speak of him often as we reminisce about our amazing journey in Greece. He was not only knowledgeable about all the sites we visited, but was also a wonderful story teller about the history and mythologies as well. Our 11 year old son and he got along famously as they shared their knowledge of Greek myths and legends. Dimitrius was always trying to make sure that we had the best experience wherever we were, from finding the most delicious baklava and spinach pies, to hunting down more chocolate souffles for our son! He also privately arranged for us to visit a synagogue on our last day in Athens...a memorable event. Our best to you and your family...whenever we return to Greece, you will be the only one we call to arrange our trip. Feel free to use us as a reference. Please give Dimitrius our love!!!

Many thanks,
Ben, Carol, and Sam Greenspan

we just returned to Canada today and I thought I would let you know that we really enjoyed our tour of Athens with Dimitrios (hope I spelled this correctly). His extensive knowledge of the sights and Greek history made the tour extra special. I won’t hesitate to recommend your service to anyone who is looking for a First Class driver and guide for a tour of Athens. Our only regret was that we could only spend one day in your fascinating city! Thanks again…and please pass on our gratitude for a top notch tour to Dimitrios!

Dear Paul,
...just wanted to let you know that Athens, Greece was by far the highlight of the Mediterrean cruise that I recently took. The tour with Demetrius (Jimmy) was fantastic. He certainly went over and above his call of duty to provide excellent service. His warm personality and vast knowledge of Greece made this a most memorable experience. Please share with Demetrius what a favourable impression he has made. :)

Kindest regards,

Hi Demitrios,
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for a wonderful day. My family and I really enjoyed spending the day with you seeing all of the beautiful sites in Athens. Your company had come highly recommended to me and I can certainly see why. You are clearly a gracious, informative and accommodating driver/guide. Should you ever find yourself in the States, or the New York area, please feel free to give us a call and maybe we can share our beautiful country with you. Thank you again

Hello Paul:
Many thanks to you and Jim for the wonderful service that you provided to me and Fiona this last weekend. We had a great time in Athens, much of which was due to your impeccable organisation of our trip to Cape Sounion, and the transfers to and from the Airport to our hotel. We both enjoyed your relaxed and often humorous approach, and the knowledge that you have of Athens was second to none. We would have no second thoughts in recommending you to any of our friends. Once again, thank you.

Kindest Regards,

Hi Paul:
Thanks to you and your son for taking me and my friends around Athens and on our 3 day tour. I had a great visiting your country, hearing about all the history and seeing the sites/museums. I particularly liked Sparta and Olympia. I'm very pleased with your services. I definitely will recommend you to people out here in the San Francisco area as well as use you again the next time I return to Greece. I hope you and your family had a great fall and wonderful holiday season.

Hi Paul,
My husband and I just wanted to say a big thank you to Jimmy for the airport pickups, the Delphi trip and the Sounion trip. He is really a delight and made our stay on Athens doubly memorable. Besides going out of his way to make sure I was able to get up to the Parthenon, (I had surgery on my leg) he was very concerned about our getting out of the Grande Bretagne on the day of the demonstration in Syntagma Sq. He had a backup plan, to park 2 stops away and come and get us on foot. This was very reassuring since the staff at the hotel told us it would be very dangerous. We left early and he took us around the Olympic facilities to pass the time until our flight. We really felt he did so much more than he had to and we will be frever grateful for the peace of mind he gave us. Besides that, he's a great guide!!

Thanks again,

I just can't thank you and your company enough! Joseph and Donna Kiggins just got back to the states and she came in the am to let me know how the trip went. They were so very pleased with your service, professionalism. They told me that it was flawless. I wish I could have said the same for their transfers in Rome!!!! That was a disaster! I will use you again when the need arises, but I wanted to let you know that they could not say enough great things about your company!!! Thank you so very much!

Hi Paul,
My husband and I would like to thank you for the wonderful service that you provided for us this past Sunday and then again yesterday. Both the driver who picked us up at Piraeus and the driver that picked us up yesterday and took us from the Grand Bretagne to the airport, were professional, prompt, friendly and informative. We are so happy that we chose your company. I am keeping your email and phone numbers and I am bringing them into my office tomorrow. I am a travel agent with Carlson Wagonlit and will share your information with the other travel agents in the office. That way, we can recommend our clients to you, for private transfers and also private tours. Again, thank you Paul and we really enjoyed our visit to Greece and Athens. Hope to be there again in the future.
