rupert w“Athens Guided excursion.”
We wanted a private guide to the Acropolis and a few other sites. We wanted expert knowledge and to avoid the crowds and we got all that and more. Eleni was a brilliant guide. As a seasoned archaeologist she knew her stuff. She brought the whole thing to life including the historical contexts of the Acropolis and the Agora helped by a short trip around the Agora museum). All accomplished in a few short hours and she dropped us at the Acropolis museum at the end of the trip with a few hints and tips. She is a complete professional, she speaks immaculate English and was great company. Couldn’t be happier. Time and money well spent!
Happy_Dudes“Reliable transfer, excellent private guide and driver”
Eleni was prompt in answering my questions and making the arrangements for our transfer from Athens airport to our hotel, our private guided tour of the Acropolis (guide had excellent English and was very knowledgeable), afternoon Athens city tour, and a transfer to Piraeus port for our cruise. It was so reassuring for our party of 6 to come to a country, where we do not speak the language, and to have everyone at the appointed times as expected. The Mercedes van for the transfer was very clean and comfortable. Our driver was very accommodating/ We were all quite tired (jet lag, etc.), so didn’t get out to visit all of the sites (which now all charge admission fees), but he was very helpful. Highly recommend contacting them to help you with your travel plans in Athens
Suzana L“Excellent – Four Transfers”
We got 4 transfers from airport to hotel to port in different combinations.
We had two different drivers. The first one was a bit serious, but very polite and courteous. The second driver, Alex, was awesome! We loved him!
Great personality, super helpful and funny!
We were going to Piraeus to catch the ferry to Mikonos. Traffic was horrendous.
Alex dropped me off by the ticketing office while the cops yelled at us\ and found parking. and helped my husband and daughter drag our luggage to meet me.
Also, he gave us some very good recommendations. The best was a gellato place just a couple of blocks from our hotel, The Herodion. We totally recommend Olive Sea Travel!
Thank you Vasili and Olive Sea Travel for the fantastic experiences we had during our 2 tours in Greece. We, a family of 3, took 2 trips around Greece – an 8 day tour of the Peloponnese, followed by a 5 day tour of Central and Northern Greece. The tours, itinerary and accommodation were perfect and Vasili (our driver) was so friendly and helpful, during both the planning of the tours and the actual trips. What I really enjoyed was being able to visit out of the way sites without difficulty, such as the pyramid in Argos, which you will never see on a bus tour and would be hard to visit without a car. Also, the flexibility that comes with a private tour is great!
And, I cannot thank Vasili enough for helping to recover my wallet & credit cards which I left in Olympia, only realising this after we had returned to Athens (and were some 300km away) – Vasili really went out of his way to retrieve them.
If you would like to see the real Greece, its spectacular landscapes and magical sites, with people who genuinely love showing it to you, then I highly recommend Olive Sea. You will feel more like a friend and guest, rather than a client. I look forward to taking another tour with Olive Sea Travel on my next visit to Greece.
I would strongly recommend this company. We were in Athens for 2 days and wanted to see a lot and Vasilis made it happen. They were very friendly and knowledgeable of the places we went to. We had booked a tour to Delphi and an Athens tour and they recommended the order in which to see the most.
We also used them for airport and ferry transfers and they were amazing!
Walt B“Perfect choice for visiting sites around Athens”
We wanted to visit Delphi and the Hosios Lukas monastery while staying in Athens. Olive Sea provided a wonderful private tour. The van was luxurious and expertly driven by Alex, a native of Athens. He experience and personal interest made him wonderfully informative about the history of our destinations and of Greece generally, its current economy and culture, and the many other subjects we chatted about on the trip. He chose great stops for lunch and coffee, and graciously accommodated our particular interests.
