Vicki Masters, Australia

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.

Annette & Howard Cooper

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.

Barry Strauss, USA

“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!”

Bill & Sharon , USA

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.

Craig., USA

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.

Deborah Bennett, USA

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!

Charlotte, USA

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.

Andrea Bry, USA

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.
