We all very much enjoyed our tour around Athens. Our tour guide was well spoken, pleasant & gave us quite a bit of knowledge about Athens. We highly recommend your company.
My husband Howard and I would like to thank you very much for arranging our tour of Athens last week. We felt that we saw more of Athens in one day than many people are able to see on their own in a week.
“Dear George, Thank you for an unforgettable day of touring yesterday. Marcia and I feel fortunate to have met you. We are grateful for your splendid display of Greek φιλοξενία. With best wishes!”
We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip with you last week. You helped to make our 25th anniversary trip to Greece something that we will never forget. Thanks so much for the pastries and peaches you gave us.
Υour service was just what we needed. We were all jet lagged and couldn’t think, so George did our thinking for us. Lots of good stories and Cape Sounion was beautiful.
George, Just wanted to let you know what a GREAT time we had with your son Dennis when we were in Athens 2 weeks ago from our NCL Jade cruise…he was polite, informative, gracious, attentive. We certainly enjoyed our all too brief visit, thanks to his help!
We are hoping to be back in Athens early next year and will defiantly use your company for our travel and touring needs. Thank you again for the first class service.
I wanted to write to tell you how much we enjoyed our tour of Athens with your son Billy. I will forward your information to our travel agent for her information and future clients.
Makis kept the trip enjoyable and was a pleasure to have as our guide. The 4 days we spent with in the Greek countryside were an excellent time in many aspects and will live as a fond memories for us.
George's Taxi is all about privacy!
