Thanks Potoula, we had a great time in Greece and appreciate the excellent service from your company. I gave your company name to all the hotel/B&B owners in Greece and recommended you to them. I will do the same with my friends in the US. I am sharing an article my daughter wrote about her Greece trip for a local newspaper. Your taxi driver is prominently featured in the article ! http://www.dailycal.org/2013/01/07/fit-for-the-ancient-gods/

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,

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.

Hello
We arrived safely back in the US and wanted to say thank you again......to your company and George. ....for making our time in Greece so wonderful. We greatly appreciate you looking out for us! Hope to see you again in the future. Many thanks again!

We enjoyed the services of your drivers, and appreciate your quick response to our transportation needs due to the general strike. I will be posting a good review on trip advisor. One thing: we appreciated the fact that your drivers did not use their mobile phones unless absolutely necessary. My friends and I are from Canada where we have strict laws against texting and driving and use of mobile phones when driving. It makes us very nervous when we see drivers texting or using their phones. Many drivers in Canada use hands-free devices (like blue tooth). We used several private drivers during our trip (Nov 5 -15) and will not recommend some companies because their drivers texted while driving and were using their phones constantly.

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."

"We used Greek Taxi when we were in Athens pre cruise. As we had limited time we took their 5 hour tour. It was an amazing overview of the city. Our driver was Nick, Paul's son, he was friendly, well educated and had a really deep knowledge of the history of this interesting city. When he picked us up from our hotel he discussed with us what we planned to see and gave us the opportunity to be flexible with our time. Although he couldn't tour the sites with us he gave us an excellent overview of them pointing out the highlights. From our first email contact their service was excellent. Potoula always answered in a very prompt friendly way offering advice on many aspects of our visit. We would highly recommend this family firm and would definitely use them again if we were back in Athens." Thanks again for a wonderful service

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 Potoula,
Wanted to let you know that my friends and I had a wonderful tour with Paul. He was so nice when one of my friends felt ill. He got a taxi for her and another friend to go back to the ship. Our guide for the Acropolis was also great. Please send me her name as I have forgotten it. I want to put something on cruise critic about how good everything was. She told us we had to go to the top of the Acropolis and she was right. She took it nice and slow but we kept in front of the hordes that were on big bus tours. We were thankful we were just the 4 of us.

Thanks,

Dear Potoula,
WE had a fabulous time in Corinth and Athens and our driver was superb. His knowledge of history and current affairs and how to get around the city made our full day of touring wonderful. His suggestion on where to grab a quick bit to eat was great! The next time we are in Athens we will call you again because there is so much more to see! Thank you for being so thorough on your end with all the arrangements.

Kind regards,

Hi Potoula
We enjoyed Alex as our Guide, we saw so much more than we thought we could in such a short time, and his knowledge about your city was very impressive as was the way he presented it. He would be a great Asset for any company promoting tourism in Athens. The link is to an online account with Google where I put some of the pictures, if you can, please see that Alex gets to see them as well. My step sister is the Travel Agent that Booked our trip & I have included a copy of this letter and the pic’s to her, I sure she’ll Keep you company in mind for any future inquires.

Hi Potoula. I wanted to thank you for all your emails and for organizing our tours in Athens. Dimitri is absolutely wonderful Thank you again, Potoula!!

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

Dear Potoula,
My wife and I had an extremely pleasant time with Alex when we were in Athens before our cruise. Alex has been most professional, well mannered and extremely informative on the sites that we were visiting. We had two full day visiting various sites around Athens and he delivered us to the cruise terminal in front of the Crystal Symphony in very good time. We must also not forget the delicious places that Alex took us for our meals and all in all an extremely that is most pleasant and most definitely recommended.

I would also like to add that the booking experience was really such a breeze and easy to do and of course Potoula your client handling skills is also much to be applauded as at all times you were quick to respond and indeed very reassuring to a first time visitor to Greece. Last but not least we were very appreciative of the fact that Alex did not guide us to souvenir shops nor restaurants which were part of the mainstream tourist trade.

Many thanks once again

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.

Hello Potoula,
I really wanted to make sure you knew that we had a wonderful time on our day in Athens! Petros made our day extra special. We were a bit concerned about getting off the ship that day because of the possible riots and we are so glad we did. Petros took great care of us and made the day one of our favorites of our whole trip. Please let him know how much we appreciated his kindness and extra care for our group. We really loved our meal too!! Thank you! We will be referring others to you and hope to return again ourselves. Have a wonderful Christmas!

We arrived home two days ago and I just have to say......our tour with Alex was THE BEST!!! HE did a wonderful job getting us everywhere we wanted to go, even with the traffic problems surrounding the German's Chancellor's visit. He was very thorough in his history of the sites and also anticipated all our wants regarding what to see and picture taking. And Alex, my mouth is still watering over the delicious goodies you treated us to at the end of the tour!!!! Very thoughtful!!! Thank you for making our introduction to Greece so wonderful!!!! Yes, you ARE..... "ALEXANDER THE GREAT......TOUR GUIDE"!!!

I would like to thank you for the wonderful day we spent in Athens with our guide Nancy. What could have been a difficult day because of the protests turned into a very pleasant one. We didn't even know what had happened in Athens until we were safely back on the ship and saw the news reports. We got to see the Parthenon and Acropolis then we went off to Cape Sunion after a great lunch. Hopefully we can come back and see more of Athens in calmer times. Good luck to all of you.

Thank you again,

Hello Paul,
I hope you are doing well! Jim and I had such a wonderful time on our tour with you. We saw all the sites with ease and comfort, we visited places other tours did not offer, and most of all you were an excellent guide who gave us insight into what we saw as well as the modern Greek culture. For us, the tour was a true Greek experience We both think that having you drive us on the tour was one of the best days of our trip, and Jim always mentions you when anyone asks about his favorite part of our vacation. I hope that the Greek economy is improving and the spirit of the Greek people is reviving. I have thought often about what you said in our conversation about the difficult economy and have wondered how you are doing. If you ever need a reference or testimonial, please do not hesitate to let me know. It was a pleasure to spend our time in Athens with you!!

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.

Dear Potoula,
I have just arrived yesterday night! There no words to describe my experience whit PK Travel (athensbytaxi.com). Amazing, terrific…… these words are not good enough. Dimitri is, to my wife and I, one of the most remarkable memories of Greece. The PK Travel’s service was EXCELENT. Athens is really very beautiful city and your services help to make it better. Thank you so much. Thanks to Dimitri. Thanks to everyone that make this little contact so big and unforgettable.

With my best and warmest regard

It was fabulous. What a great time we had. Excellent service, good humor, professional, timely, informative, and fun.
Thanks so much, wish we could have duplicated him for our other ports of call. Our Rome guide missed us some how and was very inconvenient and stressful for us. We really appreciated all of your time and services in Athens. Please give Alex a hug for us we had a great time with him, and we recommeded him on the cruise critic board so hopefull that will send some business your way.

Thanks again,

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.

Sincerely,

Dear Potoula and Paul,
We just arrived home from our wonderful trip and day in Athens....the best! I am very tired after traveling all day but wanted to write and let you know how pleased my entire family was with George and Athanasia....they were wonderful! The van you all provided was so perfect and exceeded our expectations...and George and Athanasia were both so friendly, helpful and informative. It was the most perfect day in Athens .... and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! I will put an "official" comment on your web site within the next couple of days, but I just had to let you know how pleased we were with everything....it really made our short time in Athens so memorable!!

Thank you again! We are already looking forward to our next visit to your beautiful country!

Kindly,

Dear Potoula,
Your service is exceptional indeed. You always responded promptly and arranged everything to our satisfaction. Konstantinos was wonderful. He was already waiting for us when we disembarked and gave us an exceptional tour with lectures on what we were going to see at a particular site. ( We did not need a guide. ) He also provided us with cold water and delicious fresh round bread for each of us, that he just picked up at a bakery. And at the end he thanked us in a way that I have never heard before and it really touched my heart. In other words, our tour in Athens was a big success thanks to you , Potoula, Konstantinos and Greek Taxi.

SIncerely,
Christina

Paul,
thank you so very much for your absolutely outstanding tour of Athens! We will always remember our wonderful day in Athens because you made it so special! You picked us up from the Norwegian Spirit in your vey large and comfortable air conditioned Mercedes van. When we arrived at the Acropolis there were only a few people on line. Imagine that! Before we arrived, you explained all about the Acropolis and told us some stories from Greek Mythology. Paul is very knowledgeable and you can just tell he loves Athens and he loves his job! We enjoyed the Acropolis so much and took lots of pictures. When we were leaving huge crowds were arriving but, thanks again to Paul, we avoided the heat and spent time enjoying the Acropolis with hardly any tourists. We also saw the changing of the guards, a tremendous view of Athens from the Hill of Lycabettous, the Temple of Zeus, the Agora, and spent the rest of the day eating and shopping at the Plaka. We highly recommend Paul’s Greek Taxi tour. If you are stopping at Athens on a cruise, and want to avoid being herded like cattle, paying outrages prices, and want a really terrific tour just email Paul. It’s easy! We LOVE you Paul!!! Thanks for making our day in Athens so FANTASTIC!!!

Sincerely,

Hi Potoula,
Just want to let you know that we had a fabulous day exploring Athens with our guide Gregory and driver. Gregory was a wonderful host with indepth knowledge of Greece - past and present! We felt we got a real insite into the people, country, way of life & cuisine of Greece...again past & present. We had our elderly mother with us and Gregory was very gracious in keeping the pace at a manageable level while trying to cover as much as possible. The highlight for me was sitting in the shade near the Parthenon hearing all it's wonderful stories. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to fellow travellers to Greece.

Thanks & Regards

Potoula and Paul,
We really enjoyed our time in Athens. The tour was fantastic. Paul was a great guide and was very accommodating in whatever we decided we wanted to see or do. Thank you for one of the best memories we have ever had. My family was impressed and said it was the highlight of our Greece trip. We will be sure to post a great review on trip advisor and suggest to any friends wanting to visit Athens. Maybe we'll be back with the whole family again and you really will need the bus because there would be 8 of us.

Thank you again for such a wonderful experience. Take care and bless your family.

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.

Potoula,
we had a blast in Greece! I cannot say enough about how great Konstantinos was to us. He was knowledgeable about Greek history and knew all of the best places to eat and visit. We posted a five star, very positive review for your company on TripAdvisor yesterday in appreciation of the great service. We will definitely recommend you to friends and will be sure to get in touch again our next time to Greece!

Hi there..
We had a great time and really enjoyed the tours.. Dimitris became a good friend of ours after spending three days together. Please extend my personal thanks to him for making the trip so special. In fact, I learnt so much that I have started reading about Greek history and mythology after returning and reliving our visits to Delphi and Acropolis. I also feel that we have to go back again to visit the places that we could not cover this time - especially Olympia and Meteora.

Thank you once again.

Hi there Potoula,
I have to say that we were absolutely delighted with the service and friendliness that you gave us during our trip to Athens. Everything was brilliant. We were very chuffed and would certainly use your services again if we are back in Athens. I have infact today left a review on Trip Advisor for yourselves which I hope will be of use for future business for you.

Once again thanks.

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.

Regards,

Hi Potoula,
We had a wonderful trip! We all agreed that of all the tours we took, our favorite one was with Paul while in Athens! My husband really wasn't looking forward to Athens, since one of his friends had just got back from Europe (Italy and Greece) right before we left, and his friend wasn't very impressed with Athens (he thought it was very dirty). Needless to say, my husband had nothing bad to say of our day in Athens! Paul was a terrific guide with a great personality and we loved our day in Athens! He must have showed us all the good areas (although I think he drove us through an area that wasn't so desirable...). Tell Paul thank you for walking us around the restaurant /shopping area before leaving us on our own. That was very helpful. If we make it back to Athens, we will be sure to look you up again. If we don't, but we know someone going there, we will be sure to refer them to you! Now we are back home, and school starts in less than two weeks. :( Tell Paul thank you from the people from Texas! We really enjoyed our day with him!

Kind Regards,

Dear Potoula,
Thank you so much for sharing your amazing city with us. My husband, teenaged son, and I, were delighted with Alex, our driver. His delightful sense of humor, extensive knowledge of the city and its history, visual presentation on his tablet, impeccable timing of knowing the best places to be at the best times, and his pointed social commentary, made for an unforgettable experience. Everything about our tour was simply great! The fact that Alex had served as a Presidential Guard, added to our interest, as he told us all about the training and origin of the uniforms. We had no preconceived ideas about Athens, so we were pleasantly surprised to be exposed to so many different and interesting areas of the city. Alex even stopped the car to allow my son to get out and take pictures of a Lamborghini parked near the Plaka - a real treat for a 19 year old! Also, the added bonus of being dropped off at terminal B, as opposed to taking a bus from terminal A to our ship, was an added advantage.

Thank you again for providing a fabulous tour. I will certainly recommend your company to any friends, family and fellow travelers. Originally, my husband was concerned about the price of the tour. After the tour, he commented that our tour was definitely worth the price…and more!

Peace,
Lisabeth

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,

Hi Potoula,
I just wanted to let you know that Josh and I enjoyed Athens very much. We could have not asked for anyone better than Nick to take us around the city and inform us of everything. I must say Athens was our favorite stop on our trip. Hopefully we will be able to come back soon and spend more time. Send our regards to Nick and thank you so much for everything! J

We had a wonderful tour with Petros. It was HOT and humid and our luggage was lost (we did get it after our tour of Athens), and a few of us were grumpy, but our tour leader cheered us up! We enjoyed the entire tour and our lunch together. It was very informative, relaxed, and congenial.

Thanks!

Dear Paul,
Many thanks for taking me and my wife and two daughters to a delightful private tour to Corinth, Mycenea, Nafplion, and the grand ancient theatre at Epidaurus. We enjoyed it very much. We even saved some money by using your service. Also, many thanks for your trust. When I phoned you from my hotel Acropolis House on July 21, you immediately accepted my booking for a tour on July 23, without asking me for a deposit. You just said you would come to pick us up at the hotel on 8 am that morning, and you did show up on time. As you know, our hotel reception could not arrange such a private tour at your asking price. Once again, our gratitude. You may post my thank-you note on your website. We returned safely to Taiwan on August 3.

Dear Potoula and Paul,
Thank you so much for the excellent tour we experienced with our guide, Thano. Unfortunately, the temperature was very high, about 100. We were grateful for the air conditioned car and water that Thano provided. I will certainly mention the wonderful time we had with your company on Cruise Critic.

Our tour with Nick was fabulous and truly one of the highlights of our trip! Thank you so much for taking such great care of us and ensuring that we would fall in love with Athens. What a terrific day we had with him! If we come back - and I hope we do - we will call again.

Warmest regards

Hi Paul and Potoula,
Sorry for the delay. We just returned home late Monday of this week and are dealing with jet lag, laundry, mail, work and so on. The price of a long vacation! We had a great day with the driver you selected. I am not sure how to spell his name, Vlasis or something similar (I apologize, but it was an unusual name for us). Anyway, he was great, he even offered to bring us to the hill that overlooks the city for a view, I think it was Lykavittos. The view was amazing! We were very pleased. Thank you for helping make our day in Athens so memorable.

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

Potoula,
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)

Hi Paul
We are safely back in the NJ/NY area and wishing we were still in Greece. Sorry this took so long to get back in touch to thank you for a wonderful day in Athens despite the 107 degree heat! If we did not use your services we would never have been able to see so many sights in so short a time especially with the heat. All the group was extremely happy with your services and agreed that you were our best tour guide during our two week trip! We now have bigger plans for next summer that we hope will include a stop in Athens again. Thanks again for a great day and also for being so good about keeping in contact with me. I will be in touch after we choose a date and itinerary (date will have to be during summer months when teachers are on vacation).

Best Regards
Kathleen

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.

Dear Potoula
I have just arrived home. I had a good time in Athens, the more so with the tour that I booked with your services. Petros is a very good and considerate driver and so patient and informative. My husband accidentally left his mobile phone in the van and when I called Petros, he was very quick to return to the hotel to give the mobile phone to my husband. I will definitely recommend your services to others. Thank you so much and our regards to Petros.

Best regards

Potoula,
My family and I are now in Venice. We have had many tour guides in many countries over the last 2+ weeks. None has been as good as Petros. He remains our best driver and tour guide of the entire trip. My children still speak of him almost daily. Please give him our best. He made Greece come alive for our family and we will always remember him. I was contacted by a friend who will be repeating our same itinerary next summer with his family. I will definitely give him your name and recommend Petros for all his tour needs in Greece. I wish you all the best!

Warm regards,

Hi Potoula
We are back home now after a wonderful trip which included Italy, Greece, Turkey and a cruise of the Greek Islands. We really enjoyed our day trip to Delphi & Thermopylae it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. A special thanks to Dimitris for making it such a great day. Greece was the favourite destination of our trip.

Hi Potoula,
What a great city Athens is! Thank you so much for arranging for George to meet us at the port and take us to all of the sites. We had a wonderful day sightseeing and getting to know the city and it's history. George was incredibly kind and affable, and we learned so much from him. I should also say that we had a delicious meal that day as well! We would definitely recommend this taxi tour to others visiting your beautiful city. Thank you again, and enjoy the rest of your summer. Give our best to George!

Sincerely,
Vanessa and Skender

Hello. We enjoyed our tour of your city with the tour guide you provided. He gave us info as he drove us around the city. He included the changing of the guard as we were lucky enough to be there on the Sunday. He was patient as he waited for us at each of the visited sites. He also allowed our elderly passenger to wait in the airconditioned car as she found the heat too much. He was on time picking us up at the dock and returning us after the 4 hour tour. Thank you for a good experience in your city.

Hi Potoula,
Our transfer was perfect! Your driver was waiting for us when we got off the ship, helped us with our luggage and provided a very pleasant and informative transfer to the airport. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and contact you again, ourselves, next time we find ourselves in Athens. Thank you

Hello,
We really enjoyed our Athens visit. Constantinos could not have been more helpful or enthusiastic. We wish every place we visited had a driver who cared about pleasing his passengers as much as he does. Having all the guide books to review with us and providng water when we needed it was greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

She was top-notch! The vehicle was so comfortable and spacious, the driver so pleasant and professional. Everything was perfect!

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!!

Sincerely,
Rachael, R.T., Trey, and Jack

Hi Paul,
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 Potoula and also, Hello Konstantinos... Ok, Konstantine.
Yes, the Franks family very much enjoyed our tour of Athens with our amiable driver Konstantine. It was great meandering along the various short-cuts in air-conditioned luxury! Firstly, we were quite amazed at the many exotic yachts and sea-cruisers at the harbour of Piraeus. Would love a trip in Konstantine's "cruiser"! Onwards we then sped towards the Acropolis, Konstantine adequately explaining what was in store for us. It was nice to have use of a guide-book. Great to be there early before all the crowds arrived! We had fun exploring the site at our own pace, and very glad of the water from Konstantine when he met us. After a quick time consultation we made our way through the traffic and duly arrived directly in front of the Parliament Buildings to watch the changing of the guard by the Evzones. Fascinating to see and excellent timing, Konstantine! Next, we soon arrived at the Temple of Zeus. We were struck by the enormity of the remaining columns, munching away at our breakfast bread ring, which had very healthy seeds! After briefly stopping at the Panathenaic Stadium for photos and statues across the road, we spent some time viewing the artifacts in the New Acropolis Museum. As we met Konstantine for our return trip, we were pleasantly surprised to receive some nice gifts. The photos and bookmarks are a great momento of our tour of Athens, the cakes were delicious, many thanks. So, just to repeat, a most enjoyable and relaxing way to see the sights of your lovely Athens. I would highly recommend your tour to future cruisers calling in at Piraeus.

Many, many thanks

Hello, Potoula,
The Van Den Heuvels and Patenaudes really enjoyed our tour in Athens on June 25. Our driver was most accommodating and our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. I would like to recommend your company and, specifically, our guide to friends that may be contacting you soon to help with their trip in August. It will be Meredith Page Strange or Alexe Page who contact you. I am also attaching a photo of our guide in hopes that you can refresh my memory with our guide's name!

Thanks,

Hi Paul/Potoula
I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. We had a great time on our all day Athens tour on June 25th. We were met by your son, Nick, outside our cruise ship early in the morning. He was absolutely perfect for our family and he kept us well-informed as to the various sites that we would see. He also kept us laughing the whole day with his stories. Our first stop was the Acropolis. On our way there, Nick provided us with a lot of the history on the Acropolis. Nick got us there early and gave us as much time as we wanted. I think we were there an hour and a half. Afterwards he drove us to the Panathinaiko Stadium and the Temple of Zeus. We were also able to see the Changing of the Guards before he drop us at the Plaka, so we could have a little time to shop before we ate. Lunch was at a small Greek restaurant on the outskirts of Athens. The food was terrific! After lunch, Nick had a surprise for us as we made a brief stop at Lake Vouliagmeni which is a small freshwater lake about 20 km outside of Athens. We were now on the way to the Temple of Poseidon in Sounion. The temple is perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the Agean Sea. What a spectacular view! On the way back to the cruise ship, Nick made the time to stop at a Greek pastry shop for the most delicious baklava that we have ever had. If we are revisit Athens, you will be the first to know.

All the best,
The Morrison Family (NJ)

Dear Potoula,
Let us assure you that the highlight of our cruise was the service provided by your company. My children still keep talking highly of Konstantinos, indeed he is an asset to both your company and country. We will definitely recommend whenever we can the services of your company and Konstantinos. Please send our regards to Konstantinos and hope to revisit Greece sometime in the future.

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!

Hi Potoula and Paul,
We arrived back in Australia a couple of days ago. We had a great time in Greece thanks to your excellent organisation. The hotels sellected were economic yet were of a very high standard. Our driver/guide, Alex, couldn't have been better. He is a very pleasant, knowledgable and was always there to help us in every way.

Thanks for a great holiday.

Hello,
I am back in the United States and reliving all of our Greek experiences. Two of the best memories are of our tour of Athens with Demitrius and our Cape Sounio tour with George. Both of these gentlemen are outstanding tour guides as well as being kind and thoughtful. Both tours met and exceeded our expectations. They paid special attention to my 11 year old grandaugter telling her interesting information regarding the Greek Gods etc. Thank you so much. You can be sure I will be recommending your tour company to my friends who go to Greece. When I return to Greece I hope to book a 4 day tour of Greece visiting Olympia, Dephi and more remote areas of Greece.

Until then, thank you again.

Hello Paul and Potoula from RAINY Victoria Canada!
We just arrived home from our best vacation ever…and Paul was certainly a part of that. We enjoyed our day and a great overview of your city. We particularly appreciated getting to the Acropolis so early to beat the heat and the crowds. In spite of not having a tour guide, we enjoyed the freedom of exploring on our own. We learned a great deal from Paul and enjoyed both his information and humour. Thanks again Paul for a great day in Athens.

Regards,
Chris

Hi Potoula
Thank you for your mail. We have very much enjoyed your services. Alex was really helpful and efficient. We have visited the places we wanted to visit and even had traditional greek food at a very good restaurant. My wife was really delighted to have the Baklava from the place where Alex took us. It was really nice. I would surely recommend your services to anybody.
All the best. Take care

Hello Potoula –
I have been meaning to send you an email. Thank you so much for the excellent service you provided! Our driver George was wonderful! We had so much fun with him and learned so much about Greek history from him. Our day in Delphi complete with the stop at the monastery was a trip highlight. We also went to lunch where he introduced us to some of his personal favorite Greek food. We felt like we were saying goodbye to family when he dropped us at the overnight ferry to Crete. Please give George our best! Our friends the Derr Family also used you based on our recommendation and were very happy as well.

Many thanks!

Hello! We had a wonderful day. I have put a review on Tripadvisor. It is below! We will certainly be back in Athens and will not hesitate to come back to greektaxi!

“A wonderful day in Athens made easier by Greek Taxi”
Reviewed June 30, 2012
We (sadly) were in Athens for only one day during our recent vacation and eagerly made a reservation with Greek Taxi for a full-day tour. Konstantinos took wonderful care of us. He was prompt, friendly, informative, and fun. Our vehicle was very clean and climate controlled. We knew that he was NOT our guide but he nevertheless provided a lot of useful information and even stopped to give us a historical overview of Ancient Greece with one of his handy guidebooks. We were always one step ahead of the huge bus tours as Konstantinos zipped us around to all the key locations on our schedule. Wonderful! I should mention we were in Athens one day before the 2012 election and everything went off without a hitch. We loved Athens and enjoyed our time immensely. We'll absolutely be back.

Visited June 16, 2012


Good morning, Potoula. I want to thank you so very much for our tour of the Acropolis and Cape Sounion. We had a lovely day and it was greatly enhanced by the knowledge and commentary of our guide, Margarita. We especially enjoyed the Temple of Poseidon and the amazing views of the Aegean Sea. All in all, we had a great day and are grateful for your part in that.

Best wishes,

He got us in and out of sights quickly and gave us information 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.

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!

Thank you again for your help and for allowing us the pleasure of Nick's company for the day.

We just want to thank you for all of your professional help in arranging our transfer with Paul. The services Paul provided (transfer from pier to the airport) was nothing short of excellent. We have used several private guides and transfers throughout Europe and we would not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone who is looking for perfection. We all look forward to using your services again when we are in Athens. We have already started recommending Paul to various friends who are travelling in your area in the Fall. Thank you, Good Luck and we hope to see you again.

Good morning, Potoula and Paul
it is certainly a breeze corresponding with you online before the trip, and then taking the tour with your company. The tour we took was the full-day Acropolis + Cape Sounion. Our guide for the day was Nick. Our group of 3 really enjoyed ourselves with the wonderful sights in Athens. Nick was a great ambassador, and enthusiastic about the sights we were going to visit, before leaving us time to visit each sight. We knew we were in good hands to arrive early back in our cruise ship - Nick was a great planner/organizer/driver and he knew how much time we were to spend in each place. Of course, this tour just provided us an introduction to the places we can see in Athens, and we would need to be back to explore more. When we are back in Athens on our own in the future, we definitly will look to you and your company for private tours again. I understand from Nick about the plans for a multi-day to Delphi and Meteora, so I look forward to it when we drop by Athens next time.

Cheers and warmest regards,

We just wanted to say thank you for a great tour of Athens with Alex on May 14th. Everything went just as planned – He was waiting for us when we got off the plane, and he took us on a wonderful tour of Athens. His knowledge and know-how allowed us to see more than we thought we could see in the time allowed. To be dropped off at our cruise ship was so convenient.

Thank you for a job well done.

Dear Potoula and Paul
We wanted to let you know that everyone on the tour we booked was very satisfied and had a wonderful time on the tour. My wife and I thought it was the best excursion of all the excursions we took during the cruise. The guide was very knowledgeable and full of energy, a great guide. The places he took us were awe inspiring and beautiful. Although we had to move along to see everything we didn't feel rushed. The bus was comfortable and the restaurant we went at was great. I would be happy to put very positive comments on any website you would like. I am sure you have websites you would prefer I comment on so please let me know them and I will gladly put up A+++++ comments. If I ever get back to Athens I will hire you immediately.

Hi Poloula,
thank you for a wonderful day in Athens. Konstantinos was fantastic, we saw so much and he explained the history of everything and he took us to a fantastic place for lunch where we had the best greek food. We really felt it was a great way to finish our 4 week holiday and take home many fond memories of Greece and how welcome all the Greek people we met made us feel. Pass on our thanks again to Konstantinos for his warm hospitality. We will definitely recommend your company to anyone we know visiting Greece.

In the mess and time constraints of trying to see the Acropolis before our cruise ship sailed, Paul and Potoula's service, with Chris as our driver, saved the day. We didn't need a tour, but we did need reliable transportation from our ship to the Acropolis and, after we wandered there and at the Acropolis Museum, we needed to get back to the ship on time. What a pleasure to email Potoula in advance and know that we were covered. Chris not only provided transport on time, he showed us how to proceed around the Acropolis, and made double sure that we knew where he would be waiting for us in three hours. We showed up a little early at the meeting place and Chris was already parked and waiting to return us to the ship. We'll use this company forever.

All best,

I wanted to send a short note to express our thanks for your expert transportation and guidance during our recent travel to Greece. My family and I very much enjoyed the trip, and we very much appreciated your professionalism and courtesy while you shuttled us around the various archaeological and cultural sites in southern Greece. Having someone to pick us up and take us to the airport was also a big help. We would very much recommend your company to anyone interested in your services. We would be happy to contribute an outstanding rating to your

Paul:
My friend Ginger Strivelli & I saw your taxi ad on TripAdvisor just before leaving the USA for Greece; making arrangements via email/text for everything from our airport pickup through our [sad] departure was easy & hassle-free, with prompt, courteous service and excellent prices. Such a relief to arrive in Athens knowing we'd have a dependable driver waiting!!!
Konstantino was wonderful---knowledgeable, friendly; found fabulous food for us; endless patience with our shopping, haha; safety tips.... truly, went above & beyond to insure our treks around Athens and nearby went smoothly. Ginger & I hope to return to Greece and will use your service again!!!! I have already given your website to everyone I know! Should you visit the Carolinas, I would be happy to assist in making your time here as enjoyable as my visit to Greece! Please contact me for any information or assistance in that regard.
Thanks again for such quality service & tell George hello (we had him for 2 partial days)....from the Lord Byron fans who walked the Monstraki, haha----he TRIED to talk us out of it! Tell Konstantino "Opa!", hope his family is very well...& we will request him personally next time, Delphi first thing & more time at each Agora!

We had a wonderful time, Demetry was an excellent guide! He helped us to beat the crowds all day long, and his restaurant choice for lunch was tasty and not crowded.  We will most definitely be recommending your services, and I will be glad to post a nice review on Trip Advisor and cruise critic. Thank you again for a memorable experience!

Hi Paul,
We had such a WONDERFUL time with Dimitris yesterday!! He was so knowledgable and kind... It was definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon! We really felt like he helped us make the most of our limited time in Athens. Thank you (and Dimitris) again! We will put an outstanding review on trip advisor!

Best,

On our recent NCL Jade Cruise Oct / Nov we used Athensbytaxi.com for our full day tour of Athens. I dealt with Paul online who made the booking process so easy for me & provided us with his wonderful son Dimitri as our guide. Dimitri was there waiting to start our adventure as soon as we docked. Dimitri was so knowledgeable & it was amazing how much he managed to show us of his wonderful city in so short a time. Dimitri managed to get us to the sites before the hoards of big buses arrived so we always got the best views. Athens was breathtaking & we'd all love to return & spend the time needed to fully appreciate all it had to offer. Maybe next time. Our group of 8 highly recommends using this company for your trip to Athens.

Thank YOU and Nikolas and Demetrius for an amazing and seamless transfer and tour. Wow we were overwhelmed and totally pleased with the professionalism and courtesy and knowledge of our guides. You have a wonderful service. Thank you.  I'm currently working on my travel journal blog, I plan to link your website to my comments about our time there. The address is barefootfaves.posterous.com

My husband, my cousins, and I travelled to Athens on October 17th and were scheduled to set sail from Athens on our Greek Island Cruise on October 19th, the first day of the National Strike. In preparation of our trip, we wrote to Paul's Greek Taxi Service expressing our concern about the unrest and probable transportation difficulties in Athens. Paul responded immediately to our e-mails and reassured us that he would help us with all transportation. He was true to his word. Upon our arrival at the airport, Paul greeted us with a winning smile and a spacious well appointed van. On the day of our departure, he safely and expertly bypassed a street demonstration, getting us to our cruise port on time. I was very impressed with Paul's reliability, graciousness, and likeability. On our second day in Athens, we took a half-day tour with Demetrius in a very comfortable Mercedes taxi. Demetrius was very knowledgeable and very insightful in the choices that he made for our sightseeing. It was a fabulous tour thanks to Demetrius' excellent grasp of Greek history and his thoughtful and friendly personality. I am delighted to sing the praises for this outstanding taxi and touring service! It was a highlight of our trip! Glad to do it!!!!!! Hope to take another tour with you one day!

All our best,

Hi Paul,
I just want to thank you and especially Nick for helping to give Joanna and myself a wonderful vacation. Of course all the transfers were perfect, the car was perfect but I have to say it was a complete pleasure talking with your son Nick. He advised us and actually saved our vacation (especially in Athens). I was worried that I had come all the way to Greece and would not see the Acropolis or the National Archaeological Museum due to the strikes. However, Nick was flexible and put us at ease. We enjoyed all our conversations, took great photos, and learned lots about the Greek people and the history of your "rich" nation. It was also great to have Nick explain some of the history but the professional guides that were chosen were also outstanding. I feel what I spent while expensive for us was worth every penny and more! My wife Joanna does most of the Trip Advisor work and you can be sure we will be providing wonderful reviews. I know Greece is going through some difficult times ahead and I wish I had solutions to solve the problems for such a wonderful people with such a beautiful country and history. I have confidence the Greek people that will prevail over the current financial problems. Please extend my best wishes to Nick and best wishes to his family for the new baby that I understand is coming soon.

Warmest Regards,
Joe Siegel & Joanna Baker

I highly recommend the tour company "Athens by Taxi". Dimitri, our driver, gave us a fantastic day in Athens seeing all the major sites. He was extremely knowledgeable & our transport was very comfortable for eight people. I interviewed many companies and I am happy that I decided to use Athens by Taxi. Paul Kalomiris, the owner was very nice to work with in planning our tour. I am a travel agent and I would highly recommend this company and would recommend Dimitri as your driver.

Hi Paul
I haven't forgotten to get back to you; it's been crazy back home! Nick was '' ok '' LOL kidding! He was wonderful. Unfortunately the day we went the monuments were closed due to Strike in Greece but between Nick bringing us as close as possible and my big lens it all worked out well. We were four who spent the full day and it was well worth it. We enjoyed the personalized service, not feeling rushed and leaving when we wanted. Simply perfecto! Definitely recommend your services to anyone. Please do not hesitate to post on your site! Please pass on photos to Nick! Plus here's a picture of our 3rd grand-child. She was born October 31st !!!

Thanks again

Hi Paul,
I just got back to Canada on Friday and due to jetlag and trying to get wedding presents etc opened before I was back to work today, I did not get a chance to send an email to you. Sherri and I LOVED the tour through Athens, even with the heavy traffic due to the transit strike. Greece is a beautiful country and Athens was beautiful as well. The Greek people in general are extremely nice and accommodating, we appreciated all 3 of our stops in Greece. Konstantine was absolutely incredible. He went above and beyond for us, he had umbrellas ready for us, and he got us water and bread for between sites. He took us to a real authentic Greek restaurant for lunch. His Knowledge was incredible and his personality was just great. He made out trip to Athens much more than it otherwise could have been. Thank-you to Greek Taxi and to Konstantine for everything, again, we were more than thoroughly pleased.

Thanks again for everything,

Hi Paul,
Thank you for your email and we would like to tell you that we were very impressed with your services. Thanks to Demetrious we had a wonderful and stress free tour of Athens and a fantastic lunch where we got to taste many authentic Greek foods. He was very knowledgeable about Greek history and culture and also very friendly and courteous. We will certainly recommend you to others who visit Athens. Once again, thanks for all your help and please give our best regards and thanks to Demetrious.

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 can not 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.

Hi Paul:
We just returned home a couple of days ago from our trip and were going to email you. We wanted you to know how pleased we were with your nephew, Constantine. He was great and took us to so many places in the short time we had and also explained different things to us. We would highly recommend him and your company to anyone who is going to Athens. We also appreciate the ease of working with you through email and you following up on things. Thank you for your email today. Athens is a very beautiful and historical place....you also have great food! 

Best regards,

Paul,
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We had a great time and can't thank you and Konstantinos enough for providing such excellent service and an enjoyable tour to Delphi. After having had an outstanding tour last year to Corinth with Konstantinos, we decided to book again with you this summer. We certainly appreciated his congenial personality, as well as his ability to provide a nice day tour with "no stress". My wife and I will certainly contact you again on our next visit to your beautiful country!

Paul,
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,

Hi Paul,
We had a wonderful wonderful time... and couldn't have asked for a better experience... even with the "unrest" in Athens the day we got back... He couldn't have done a better job... although we were disappointed that we couldn't have stayed with he and his wife (had we not gotten into the hotel) :) :) Hope things got back to normal with the ports and all. Take care.

We arrived in Piraeus on May 28 and were picked up at the port by Paul, driving a 16 passenger van for the four of us. Needless to say, we were comfortable. Paul had us up on the Acropolis by 08:30 and it is really amazing to have such an attraction almost for a private viewing. I got wonderful pictures without other tourists in them. We also got to see the Changing of Guard even though the streets in that area of the city were being shut down because of demonstrators. Paul know just where to go to get around the problem. And to top it all off, he even arranged to the Canadian flags to be everywhere, including on the parliament buildings (Canadian PM Stephen Harper probably thought they were for him but we think Paul arranged it for us.) We had a great day with Paul and would recommend him highly.

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.

Paul,
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.

Paul--
Several people I had breakfast with on the ship this morning told me they were unable to even get into the Acropolis yesterday because it was so overcrowded by the time they got there, later that morning. It again made me really appreciate the job you and Nick did for us--I bet there were maybe 20 people there when we got there around 8 AM.

So thanks again,
Steve Kissinger


Hi Paul!
Suzie and I thank you and Demetrius very much. We thoroughly enjoyed our transfers and tour to Delphi and Thermopylae. Demetrius was like a brother to us. He made us laugh and he filled us in with lots of tips and history we will always think about. He is a great guide and friend to have in Greece. Suzie and I loved the way he tried to help us understand what we were seeing as we drove around the countryside. I have risen to a new level of consciousness because of Demetrius's care and wisdom. :)

Much love and appreciation,
Roland and Suzie!!!

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,

Thanks again,

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.

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.

Dear Paul:
We are now back in a cold England (a heavy frost last night and another one predicted for tonight) but remembering our visit to Greece with great delight. Thank you for your efficient and helpful service. We enjoyed our visits to both Osios Loukas and Delphi. I hope we may return for Mystra; is on my list of places I wish to visit. When we have the opportunity we shall certainly recommend you to our friends both Greek and ex-pat. Thank you for sharing in conversation on the journey I learned a lot about Greece as well as being reminded of those great Greek myths. May schools continue to teach the classics.

Best wishes,

Dear Paul,
We had a wonderful time in Greece. I personally fell in love with Athens and hope to revisit someday. We so enjoyed spending the day with Petros. He knew so much about your wonderful country that he shared with us on the tour. We feel fortunate to have taken the smaller tour as we feel we saw more than the larger tours would have provided. I want to personally thank Petros for his attentiveness to me as I was not able to walk on some of the stops because of the pain in my legs. He made sure I was okay and I owe him a cup of coffee. We will certainly recommend your tour service as it was exceptionally organized, exactly what you said it would be, very reasonably priced for what was included, and Petros made us feel at home in your beautiful country.

Paul, I cannot thank you enough for the best private tour we had during our trip. You professionalism, expertise and knowledge were more than we expected. We could not have asked for more. Your patience with us and consideration in the time you allowed for picture taking was appreciated, too. I will continue to highly recommend you. I will post this on cruise critics and wherever I find the opportunity on the internet. I hope we meet again in the future. Until then, thank you very much. I was so fortunate to find you and the service your company provided. I will send you the picture we took with you at the ship terminal when I get it.

Many thanks!

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.

Paul, I just wanted to let you know we really appreciated all of the services and arrangements we received from you. Nick was a pleasure to be around for the trip we went on with him. On each of our services Nick was on time or early. All instructions on were to meet after each stop was well explained and easy to follow directions. Nick showed extreme knowledge of every location we visited. I think my wife was wearing him out with all the questions, but he answered everything. I wish you and your family well. I would recommend your service to any one traveling to Greece. Thank you for everything.

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!

Gratefully,

Hi,
Athens by Taxi did a great job in securing the right equipment and persons to make our day memorable. The minibus you provided for our group of 14 was great. Your son, our driver, did a great job in making us feel comfortable and welcome immediately upon our meeting with him. The guide you hired was well informed and very considerate of our time and our needs. Both did not hesitate to provide recommendations that allowed us to maximize our time in Athens. The visit of the Acropolis and it's museum, the lunch, the tour of the City, everything was perfect! The food and venue for lunch was welcomed and appreciated by all. It was a great day! Thank you so very much to all of you.

Sorry to write back so late, but I wanted to thank you for the wonderful tour of Corinth and Athens. I booked several private tours and yours was the best by far! :) Thanks for being so flexible and professional. Everyone enjoyed it. Thank you also for letting me use your cell phone. Too bad I couldn't get in touch with the Savvidis, but at least we tried. I am really thankful that you were our driver. I wasn't expecting it so it was a treat. I will be sure to recommend your company to others.

I just want you to know that Kostas was fabulous! My experience with your company has been wonderful from the beginning. You are very quick to respond to my emails and you always answered my questions. You put my mind at ease, even though the crew on the cruise ship was trying to discourage passengers to use guides not affiliated with the cruiseship because of the unrest in Greece. I felt extremely safe with Kostas and my friends and I felt we were in very good hands. He was fun, informative, timely, drove us to great sites, and even arranged a guide for us at the Acropolis (who was fabulous). You were up front with the prices. Plus, we got back to the ship on time. We will definitely contact you again when we return to Greece. Thank you again for a memorable day.

I just wanted to drop you an email to say a big Thank you very much for the fantastic customer service we received from booking stage right through to the 1/2 day tour. Your nephew did a great job and we all thoroughly enjoyed the morning in Athens. Even though the Acropolis was closed due to strike action we felt we got great views of it and all the places of interest along with the information so didnt feel we had really missed out! I will most certainly leave a review on tripadvisor and cruise critic and would not hesitate in recommending your services to anyone travelling to Athens.

Just wanted to say thanks for a great tour! We really enjoyed it. I have to tell you, there were a bunch a drivers waiting for people at the cruise terminal. Ours was the only one with a great welcoming smile! He was wonderful, and we had a really enjoyable day. Obviously, one day is not enough to visit all that Athens has to offer, so we will have to make some plans to come back! Meanwhile, in the future, I will be happy to refer my travel and cruise clients heading to Athens to you! Thanks again.

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.

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your setting us up for a change in tour date on a moment's notice. Although we had to cut the tour down due to the fewer hours in port, your partner Mike (Maikos?) made it an absolutely wonderful day for us. Very professional and friendly, excellent knowledge and communication skills. I will not hesitate to recommend your company whenever I get the chance! Thanks again,

Just wanted to let you know we had a great time today. Constantinos the driver. Sorry I don't know how to spell his name. He is extremely friendly and very patient and flexible. He made the day very relaxing for us. We will seek you out again next time we are in athens. I will also post positive comments on cruise critic. Hopefully to get u more business. Hope all is well.

Thanks very much Paul - I have just arrived home in Australia and Marilyn is still travelling. We were really pleased with and impressed by the service provided by your company. All drivers were polite, punctual and helpful and the transport was comfortable. We especially enjoyed the company of Dimitrios (have I spelt his name correctly?) as he was very knowledgeable and entertaining and established a good relationship with my sister's husband Sam, who sat in the front with him. He also took us to a modest but very memorable retaurant for lunch where we had a wonderful meal and experienced real Greek hospitality and friendliness. Your services really made our holiday more relaxing and memorable.

Best wishes

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.

Hi Paul,
We had a great time in Greece. My group is very happy and content with everything - the hotels, the route and the best driver we had! Everything went smoothly and I'm sure we'll be back in Greece. You helped me with everything I needed and I emphasised it to the group. I'll be glad to send groups to you, If I'll get to know of such need. Paul, we'll send you photographs and also to Vagelis..(hope I wrote it right). We'll be in contact. If you plan a trip to Israel - don't forget to call me... Thank you again from all of us!

Best regards,

Hi Paul,
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but we just arrived back home yesterday from our trip. We all would like to thank you for the service your company provided. Takis was outstanding and made sure we were one step ahead of the hoard of tourists that followed us around. His knowledge of Athens and it's history was fabulous but above all he was alot of fun to be with. Our only request is that he send us some baklava! Please send him all our best.

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.

Hi Paul:
I wanted to leave a testimonial on your webpage but couldn't figure out how to do it. We want to SINCERELY THANK YOU AND PETROS, for such a wonderful tour of Athens. Everyone enjoyed it so much and we were especially impressed that Petros took us to the Acropolis before it got crowded and hot. Perfect timing. I know I drove you crazy with all of my questions but you showed total professionalism by answering them well and in a timely manner. That is why I chose your company. You can well understand how dealing with total strangers half way around the world is scary, to say the least. There is always that "trust issue" and we thank you for allowing us to pay you when we got there. Even though you were not our guide, I am happy we got to meet. It's always nice to put a face with a name. Please convey our THANKS TO PETROS. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made us feel "Welcome to Athens". He also went above and beyond the call of duty when one gal was trying to meet up with relatives in the Plaka. We almost gave up, thinking it was a lost cause, but it worked, thanks to him.

Have a happy and healthy life always,

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,
Melissa

Paul,
We had a great time in Athens. Your nephew, was a delightful and informative driver. He made our visit to Athens an enjoyable and memorable ocassion. If possible could you send us his address so we may write to him and share our pictures. We are saddened by the financial problems Greece is having and hope the efforts being taken by the European Counsil will improve the ecconomy. Again, we throughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to here from you soon.

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.

Best,
Judith Schaeffer

Hi Paul,
It was so nice bumping into you in Athens while we were touring with Dimitri! It was a pleasure for Gary and I, and Linda and Ted, to spend the day with your son!! He's a great kid.... and you must be very proud!!! Thanks again for all your help in planning our day in Athens...... we had a wonderful time!!! And please say hello to Dimitri from us here in Canada....

Believe it or not, I just completed the editing of nearly 2000 pictures from our 20 day cruise, over 250 from our trip with Frank. This is why many emails have gone unanswered. I wanted to personally thank you for the professional service you provided and most particularly the efficient yet relaxed day we spent with Frank. I don't know how much the "day before elections" meant to auto and foot traffic, but we moved smoothly and swiftly from one site to another. Frank helped to minimize walking as he knew I had a knee problem and managed everything so that we never spent much time standing in the rain waiting for tickets or entrance. I cannot say enough about our day in your beautiful city...we have already recommended you to several of our friends who are planning trips in the spring.

Hello Paul:
We are back in Belgium. After a good flight back from Athens and after a good night sleep I want to congratulate you and your firm and in particular your partner that drove us (Marco/Marcos) through Athens and to Cape Sounion. All the six of us had a great and marvellous day. Even a couple that was for several times in Athens has seen a lot of things they didn’t seen on earlier visits to the city. I recommend you to other cruisers and visitors to Athens. Thanks again for the fine service

Paul,
again we would like to thank-you for the wonderful day we had with you as our driver and guide. We felt that you showed us as much as possible of Athens as we could have possibly seen with the time we had. Also your stop at the Hard Rock was memorable for many of our group. I would be happy to post a comment on Trip advisor and plan to do so. What company name and website do you want me to list so that others get the correct Athens taxi for hire company? Hope you continue to prosper and again Thank-you.

Sincerely,

Paul,
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!

Hi Paul,
Thank you very much for all of your assistance with our tour of Athens. Peter was absolutely wonderful. He was waiting for us just outside the cruise terminal, and provided us with a fabulous day. This was the best tour that I booked during the entire tour. I loved Greece, and hope to visit again.

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!

Hi Paul,
Just wanted to let you know we are home now. I would recommend your service to anyone coming to Athens. Frank did an excellent job of driving us to Delphi. He was knowledgeable about Greece. Since it was a few days before elections, the roads were busy. Returning to Athens many main roads were closed or had come to a stop because of traffic. Frank took us on a detour that led straight to our hotel. All four of us were very pleased with the day of touring. Thanks again for making our stay in Athens more enjoyable!

Sincerely,

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 cruisecritic.com 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!

YOUR services were absolutely terrific. The pick up at the ship, the day in Athens with a great guide although a bit long winded. But we enjoyed the time with him and our driver. The trip to Delphi, the monastery and a small town with a lovely river running through it was very special. Thanks for asking for our opinion. Everything worked just great.

Dear Paul:
On behalf of myself and my friends, we all want to send to you a great big THANK YOU for our incredible Athens Excursion on Sunday, September 13th. We recently were on the cruise ship Brilliance of the Seas. We can’t thank you enough for our wonderful, incredible driver Nicholas and the brilliant Vasillios (I think he liked to be called Bill). Vasillios immense knowledge of the City of Athens and all its rich history is something we will never forget. Both Nicolas and Vasillios went out of their ways to make sure that our day in Athens would be a memorable one. Also we can’t thank Vasillios’s recommendation for lunch in the Plaka. Could not have done it without him. Please send both of them a great big hello from the six crazy ladies and the one man in our group.

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,

Hello Paul - We were with the full day Athens/Cape Sounion O'Brien Tour reservation on 27 September 2009. Just a note to say how pleased we were with this full day tour. Our driver and guide Frank was outstanding. He was on time ... very professional ... answered our questions ... made route recommendations to avoid delays caused by several Athens events that day ... took us to a very nice restaurant for lunch and - had us back to the ship in plenty of time. Frank provided very interesting tour information all through our day. We greatly appreciated his assistance. Please pass our sincere 'thank you" on to Frank for making our day in Athens very memorable.

Best regards -

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,

Hi Paul,
I just wanted to follow up with you regarding our tour of Athens on August 30, 2009. I must tell you our driver, Tom, did a FANTASTIC job! We could not have been more pleased. Tom made our day in Athens one we will never forget. Everything was seamless. Tom picked us up on time at the port which allowed us to spend time at the Acropolis in the morning before the crowds and heat consumed us. We visited all of the sites in Athens, including the New Acropolis Museum, and our lunch at the restaurant located in the Monastiraki Flea Market area was fabulous. We felt honored to be treated so graciously by the owner and his staff. I will be relaying similar comments to those on Cruise Critic who may be looking for an outstanding private tour of Athens. I hope they will contact you for a special day in Athens.

Thanks again (and please pass these comments on to Tom),

My family and I want to thank you for making our stay in Athens a memorable and pleasant one. Not only was your service first-rate, but your knowledge of the archaeological sites added immensely to the experience.

Paul,
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!

I just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful experience with your service. Your associate was waiting for us, as promised, with a sign with my name as soon as we disembarked from our ship, and our transfer to the airport hotel was flawless. The car was lovely and spotless, and your associate very helpful. I will definitely use your service again on our next trip to Greece, and will recommend you to our friends and family.

Thanks again, kai kalo kalokairi!

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. :)

Our trip was fantastic. We loved Athens. You have a beautiful city. Constantine was a wonderful host and an efficient driver. We appreciated his love of Greece and his pride in showing us the best of Athens. He is a careful, safe driver and his ability to stay ahead of the crowds was very nice.

Thank you,

My husband and I wish to thank you for the efficient taxi service you provided from the Piraeus Cruise Terminal to the Electra Palace Hotel in Athens on 1 May. Although we were early disembarking, your driver was waiting for us and very easy to find. On the journey to the hotel, he pointed out the sights to us making the journey very pleasant. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and acquaintances. Thank you again.

Hi Paul,
I would like to leave a testimonial for your taxi service. This is a very reliable taxi service we were picked up on schedule from the airport and taken to our hydrafoil in Pireaus. On our return we were met as requested and taken to our hotel, which is difficult to find, in Kolonaki. The next day we were picked up from the hotel and given a scenic tour to the airport. Everybody was very courteous and helpful and spoke excellent English. This service is worth every penny! I would highly recommend it especially if it is your first time in Athens.

Hi,
I just wanted to thank you for moving our recent trip for Athens to Napflion on April 2nd. We really enjoyed the tour with Tom. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the History and made the day very interesting and fun. This tour took away all the worry and hassle for site seeing - no getting on and off crowded uncomfortable busses that just drive by everything. We had a great day and hope we can return to Greece in the future to explore some more. It is just beautiful there! Thank You!!!

Hello, Paul –
Just a note to add to your “wall of gratitude,” we had a wonderful time driving around the Peloponnese with you. Visiting Greece had been a lifelong dream for me, and you really helped make it possible. I am very appreciative of your good humour, your patience with my stumbling efforts to speak Greek, your eagerness to see new things, such as the Temple of Vasses, and your willingness to share your knowledge of classical, Byzantine, and modern Greek history. Your customers are lucky to find you!

Dear Paul,
I didn't get this email until today. Vasilly (not sure of spelling) and Nikos were wonderful. It rained all day but we were able to see everything but the Parthenon. Vasilly was well-prepared and customized his presentation wonderfully to our interest in the Apostle Paul. Both he and Nikos made our visit to Greece a pleasure and a great educational experience for our 8 year old daughter who fell in love with both of them! I will email you soon with more details. Thank you for your great service. We will recommend you highly to anyone going to Greece.

Thanks Paul for a memorable holiday. I did not imagine how wrong it would have been had I not providentially chosen your services, which, according to my wife was the only wisest decision I had taken, apart from the choice of destination. Without any exaggeration I can say, you made our days memorable in Greece, by your punctuality, regularity, driving ease and expertise with which you made us cross the hills and valleys with smooth maneuvering of your comfortable car, your indepth knowledge of the places we visited and beyond with a ouch of mysticism and historical evidences that made the stories believable and worthwhile. There are many more places in Greece we would like to visit during my next trip. I will plan for May-June 2010 and will let you know in advance. My choices in Greece are known to you. Plan an itinerary leaving the dates please. With a lot many thanks and regards.

Our love to your family and you,

Hello Paul:
Now we are back in Northern Ireland I am writing to thank you on behalf of the class five children, teacher and parents of the Steiner School, for an amazing trip around Greece. You really made such a difference to our educational tour. The children have been full of talk about it since our return and your knowledge and enthusiasm brought history to life for us all. We would highly recommend you to any group or individuals travelling in Greece. To anybody looking for transport in Greece I would say look no further. Athensbytaxi is a fantastic, family run company. They are lovely people, highly knowledgeable and generous with their time and energy. It was a total pleasure to meet you Paul. I wish you all the very best for the future and you never know, we may be back again soon.

best wishes

A belated thank you for a great tour of Athens. Our group thoroughly enjoyed seeing the amazing sights Athens has to offer. You gave us the history and background of the various attractions in Athens. We didn't miss anything and spent a wonderful day visiting the city. Your timing was perfect - you picked us up at the cruise ship early enough to miss rush hour traffic in Athens, and we were back to the ship in plenty of time before it sailed. The restaurant you suggested for lunch in the Plaka was outstanding and we had more food than we could eat. Thanks to you, our day in Athens was fantabulous! If anyone is looking for the perfect day tour of Athens, Paul is the man to call. Our group hopes to get back to Athens in the future, and when we do, we'll call Paul.

Christine and I just wanted to thank you again for the experience you provided for us in Athens on Jan 8th. Your professionalism and advice allowed us to see so much in such a short period of time that we were extremely tired yet exhilirated by the end of the day this has resulted in a desire to return to the area with the goal of spending more time and we hope we can use your services again thank-you again

Hello Paul:
Our travels in Athens and Greece were thrilling, in part due to the beautiful scenery, but mostly due to the expert knowledge and warm personality of your son, Nick. When we think of Greece, Nick's smiling face is first and foremost. He knew exactly where to take us given our mobility limitations, had wonderful stories of ancient Greece, and was even very helpful in selecting the right book of ancient Greece. We felt that it was only because of your first class service and Nick's attention to our interests and needs that we were able to see more of Greece than possible with a tour group. One of the times we enjoyed a lot was when Nick took us to a local restaurant on our way back to Athens. The food was delicious and inexpensive - a real treat. Please forward our heart felt appreciation to Nick. Thank you very much, Paul and Nick.

Paul,
My daughter, Amber, and I booked with you to travel from Athens to Delphi & Meteora September 26 & 27. Your associate, Demetrius, met us at the cruise terminal. We wanted to let you know that he was an excellent driver, knowledgeable, personable, and took excellent care of us. He stopped at a beautiful place in the mountains for lunch (a ski town whose name I can't remember). He gave us a great over-view of Delphi and told us not to hurry as he would be waiting by the museum. We also very much enjoyed our overnight stay at Chickelis in Meteora. It is a lovely small hotel and the owners are quite friendly. I'm certain Demetrius shared his story of the silly American Tourists who could not follow simple directions to the right restaurant for dinner there (if not, just ask him) -- we had a great laugh with him when he found us.
Although it was raining (sometimes quite heavily) Demetrius managed to get us to four of the Monasteries in the morning, and then took us to a place with a great view of them for pictures as the clouds began to disappear. We also stopped at Thermopolye and had "a little history lesson" which was very interesting. On the way back to Athens we had a lovely Greek lunch, and with a couple other rest stops arrived earlier than expected at the airport. We wanted you know that he is a wonderful man, a great driver, and always made us feel safe. We will certainly recommend you & Demetrius "very highly" to anyone travelling to Athens! Thank you for all your assistance & please tell him we said "Hello"

Dear Paul
I believe you ended up sending your nephew to tour us around Athens. I apologize that we can't recall his name, but wanted to send you a note & tell you what a wonderful day we had in Athens. Your nephew did an outstanding job of showing us so many interesting things and giving us so many historical facts about what we were seeing! Please tell him how much we enjoyed spending the day with him & how much we appreciate his courtesy & knowledge! It was a fantastic, memorable day!

PS - we both agree that our lunch in Athens was by FAR the best meal we had on the entire trip!!!


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,
We had a wonderful time in Athens and saw so much more in our short stay because of your wonderful son, Nick. He was a great guide with lots of local information. He picked us up at the cruise ship promptly and we had no trouble finding him when we got off of the ship. It was such a relief to see him there and ready for our day in Athens. He took us to a lovely local restaurant that allowed us not to eat at the usual "touristy" places. We were back at the ship in plenty of time and not at all rushed or harried from our day. I would recommend anyone who has only a day in Athens to use your service to get the most out of the day!!! The car was very comfortable and we felt very safe with Nick. Thanks for making our time in Athens a great experience. We wish you, Nick, and the family the best.

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.

Best,

Hello Paul!
Hope this finds you and Nick doing very well! We are now home from our amazing vacation and I wanted to write to you, to ask you to please pass on to Nick, our "thank you" for spending the day with us in Athens! We had such a wonderful time that day and enjoyed each and every minute of it! Nick's genuine enthusiasm and love of Athens and all it has to offer, was contagious! Please thank him for sharing all of the wonderful information and history with us, and for bringing us to so many special sights. Nick made us feel very welcome and we thank him for that. We feel as if we made a new friend that day! We loved every moment and are already looking forward to returning for a visit. Thank you for making our day in Athens very special and memorable! All the best to you both!

Paul,
This is a belated email, I should have sent it after we arrived home, BUT as we were really worn out by our cruise, and had to get up to speed for Christmas things, I put it off until after the Holidays. Our tour with you was one of the highlights of our cruise, we have marvelous pictures of the Parthenon, and other sights we saw. Having you speak english as well as you do, and understanding Americans as well as you do it was a very great tour. Some other guides we had were obviously NOT fond of Americans almost to the point of rudeness, although most were very nice. You do have a grasp of the important features in Athens, and probably all around Greece, though we didn't go with you to any place else. We always knew what to look for at each site we went to, and you explained the Changing of the Guard well beforehand. I'm sorry WE didn't find the Agora, as per your instructions but most of the others did, (Rick however didn't, but found a place to SHOP which was a highlight for him). My husband Mike took the time we didn't take, to get a fabulous photo of the church by the Cemetery City and also the very small Byzantine Church, so our time was NOT wasted at that stop. The Museum was a highlight also. Thank you for being such a good "Taxi Driver", and a guide also! Sent some Photos separately

Dear Paul,
I am the Mother of Lindsay Colon who made travel arrangements with you for our trip to Greece last week. My daughter and I cannot begin to thank you and the people working for you enough. Fotis and Peter were absolutley wonderful. Not only were they a wealth of information, but were kind and ever so much gentlemen and all times. They made us feel very secure as they gave us their cell numbers each time they left us anywhere in the event we ran into trouble. We can not begin to thank them enough. They truely made all the difference in our first trip abroad. We will be sure to highly recommend you to anyone we know who may travel to your country in the future. If we are lucky enough to return,you will be the first people we contact when making our arrangements. You are truely a top notch company.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Dear Paul and Nick,
David, Sharon, Bob and I would like to thank you for the time you spent with us on Tuesday. What a fantastic day. Your expertise, knowledge and terrific humor made a for a day we will remember always. Bob and I had never had the pleasure of visiting Athens - what a fabulous city! Gorgeous. Having you introduce us to this lovely area was the best possible introduction ever. Lunch and the Temple of Poseidon were very special additions to the day. Thank you again from all of us. You can be sure we will be recommending your company and your service to everyone!

Take care,

Hello Paul,
We arrived safely in the U.S. and have been telling everyone what a wonderful time we had in Greece and how you were such an integral part of our good time. Your knowledge of the ancient sites, the Greek countryside, restaurants and hotels allowed us to see so much more than we could have by ourselves or if we had booked packaged tours. The Mercedes Benz was comfortable and sure footed through the mountains and your intimate knowledge of the mountain roads and driving skill made our travels relaxing and enjoyable. All in all we had the time of our lives and a trip we will never forget. Thank you so much. And the best thing is that we made a new Greek friend. Thank you, friend.

Sincerely,

Hi Paul,
We've been home 4 days now, and I wanted to let you know how much the Turners and the Robertsons enjoyed our trip around the Peloponnese with Fotis. He was really good - lots of info, open to questions, friendly, always helpful, and a skilled driver, most importantly. We managed to visit all the places we wanted to see and were delivered to our cruise ship in plenty of time. We have been talking about our experience with Fotis to many friends here and hope some of them may get in touch with you to do what we did. So, thanks again Paul, for arranging a wonderful trip and providing a great driver at the time when there was a family medical problem. It all worked out very well!

Cheers,

Dear Paul,
Let us send you below some words in Catalan, our native language, for people of our Country that visit your website. You have already too many testimonials in English. Thanks a lot for all.

“Per a tots els que vulguin coneixer la nostra experiencia.
Vam ser una colla de 13 persones que varem estar un dia sencer amb el Paul, al marge d’altres 3 desplacaments curts que tambe vem fer amb ell. Tots els viatges amb un Minibus mercedes molt comode. Ens va portar a donar una volta de un dia sencer per el Peloponeso, i varem pasar un dia molt agradable. Es superprofesional, puntual, condueix amb tota seguretat i a mes s’adapta al grup. Realment os el recomano. El dia que varem fer Corinto i el Pelopones, va ser una experiencia inolvidable. Per cert per els que no hi heu estat os recomanem Nafplio, una ciutat que no podeu deixar de visitar. Una colla de Badalona.”

Dear Paul,
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our tour of Athens, your driver, was very knowledgeable and a very, very good driver. We felt very comfortable and appreciated how he kept track of the time to get us back to the ship. We had enough time to see everything we wanted to see; the Temple of Poseidon was magical as was lunch by the sea. I would not hesitate to recommend your company or to use your services again.

Thank you and Best Regards,

Thank you again more than I can say for being the fantastic friend, driver, tour guide and patient person that you are. Benjamin and I could not have been better treated, directed, and cared for than you did for us. I am writing: (1) to say thanks more than I have words to say, (2) to send the three good pictures we got of you, the best one at the gate at Messene having been taken by Benjamin, and (3) to send the testimonial below. If you want higher resolution images than the ones I am sending, which are appropriate for your website, let me know.

"Your knowledge of the roads, historic places, and scenic sites of Greece is second to none. While we had planned a strong itinerary for visiting ancient sites, you added to it immeasurably by suggesting sites along our route that wonderfully enhanced the value and pleasure of our trip to both the Peloponnese and locations north and west of Athens. Indeed, you made our trips out of Athens this year at least as spectacular, if not more exciting, than when we first rode with you five years ago. I hardly have words enough to tell you how much I appreciated all of your suggestions, your doggedness in securing directions to places off the beaten path, and your patience while we spent hours studying sites. Your car was as comfortable this summer as it was five years ago when we first rode with you when it was new. You really keep it clean and comfortable. I hope you enjoy the pictures attached. They testify to how much you were a vital and valuable companion on our trip, not just a driver. Thanks again for everything and don't hesitate to invite people to contact me for a reference."

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,

Thank you for being available to work with our schedule which included 2 short days in which to see as much as possible. You are a very charming, helpful friend and we will always be grateful for the wonderful days we spent with you adventuring Greece.

I just cant 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.

Hi Paul,
Thank you for making our visit to Athens a happy and memorable one. You escorted us early in the morning from the cruise ship in your new and extremely comforable van and you moved us about the very busy city in a very pleasant and efficient manner. We had just a day to see so much but you made it seem easy and relaxed and we left that evening feeling that we had accomplished seeing the highlights of Athens. We highly recommend Paul for his courtesy, knowledge, and his wonderful van! Excellent value. Thanks, Paul. We wish you well.

Dear Paul,
We wanted to tell you how very much we enjoyed our taxi tour of Athens and the surrounding area. It’s been almost a year since we toured with you, and I’m sorry it’s taken so long to send this note, but our happy memories of the tour have not diminished at all with time. It was wonderful to have a drive who spoke such fluent English, and we really appreciated the fact that you were willing to customize our tour to just what we wanted to see. And we know that, because you knew the area so well, we saw sights and heard stories that not every visitor gets to.We particularly enjoyed our trip to the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion. Such fantastic ruins – and such a beautiful view! Thanks so much for being our guide. We’ll be sure to call on you again next time we plan a trip to Athens.

Sincerely,

Dear Paul,
we are writing to thank you for all the wonderful services you provided for us on our last trip to Greece. The Greek people we met were overwhelmingly hospitable; the land beautiful; the weather was unseasonably kind. But the trip would not have been half so good without your services. You were always on time, always available, always thinking of what we might like to see. The arrangements you suggested were thoughtful and geared towards what you had gleaned were our interests---and they were on target. More than that, you were such a pleasure to meet and travel with. Whether we were driving in the city or out overnight in the countryside, the trips were comfortable, safe and secure. You knew where to stop for lunch or where to pick up a clay pot. We can't thank you enough except to say we will always call you when we come to Athens and venture out.

Many thanks

Thank you so much for a great day at Delphi. My name is Tony Munoz and I was with my Aunt Denise Sokolowski and Uncle Robert Munoz. We had a great time we took lots of pictures and we would like to thank you once again for a great day and your great work. You were very knowledgable about everything. You picked us up at the Hotel Nefeli and the rest was awesome. Also very nice car the 270 CDI is a very elegant car and I personally look forward to returning some day and using your services again.

Thanks for everything,

I am sorry that I have not written sooner to thank you and your son for your excellent service again! Both days were wonderful; although with all the shopping the second day, it was the most expensive vacation day of my life!!! I hope you will now have a few days to relax after the Olympics. Greece must be very proud as I do not think the Olympics could have been done better. I hope all is well.

Thank you for such an enjoyable day trip on Greece! You are so knowledgeable and accommodating. It was very easy to make the arrangements with you on the web. Your punctuality and professional manner were refreshing. Spending the day with you "made" our trip! Thank you for all your travel tips and for interpreting for us too.

Paul,
Our Greece-vacation is truly memorable, fun and educational for my entire family. First, thanks to God and secondly, to all of you who have helped us in making our vacation enjoyable. Thank you Bro. Norman for all the tips and directions you gave us to go around Athens. And to you Paul, you don't realize how you'd helped my family with your expertise. We felt safe and now are more knowlegeable with the history and places we'd visited(Delphi, Olympia, Corinth, Mikines, Epidaurus, Nafplion, Patras, etc). My children, Abel and Lara, will now have better understanding of ancient Greek History (Trojan War, Troy, Agamemnon, Phythia, etc. very interesting stories). I'd sent emails to all my siblings and friends and told them of our adventures and fun and how you'd helped us in putting together our 3-day tour. I sent them your phone#s, email address and web sites. May the blessings and mercy of God be with all of us and ones we loved.

Best taxi in Greece. A man named Paul is considered by many to have the best taxi service in Athens, Greece. Fluent in English, he will pick you up at the airport to help you with your luggage, drive you to your hotel and, if you wish, give you a tour of the city and the countryside. For some this has included a trip to his farm, where they enjoyed his mother's delicious cooking. Delores knows this first hand. A travel agent who has travelled extensively, she has used his services. She can say, indeed, "he is the best taxi cab driver in Greece.She said she was particularly impressed with his immaculate car and dress and his wide array of maps, one which was three-dimensional and showed how Athens looked in ancient days.

My son Benjamin and I regularly smile to ourselves when we think about the days we had with you taking us to the sites of ancient Greece, some well known, others far off the beaten path. We went to Greece for Benjamin, a graduate student in Classics, to get to know the country whose ancient literature he had been reading. He knew the sites he most wanted to visit, and you only took us to those, some of which we had to really search for, but also you suggested places we needed to visit of which we did not know. Furthermore, you enhanced our sightseeing by helping us understand the culture more intimately than the average tourist ever can. The bottom line is that you made our trip far more productive than otherwise it would have been. Your car could not have been more comfortable. And for a person as I, who knows virtually no Greek, your fluent command of English made all the difference in the word in enriching my sightseeing in particular and experience of Greece in general. Truly, you treated us as family, for which we will de forever grateful. I can't wait to go back to Greece to see and experience more of the country with you.

We had the pleasure of utilizing Paul's services during our recent honeymoon in Greece. Paul was waiting for us at the airport when we got through customs and took us our hotel in downtown Athens. I was immediately impressed with his new car and his command of the English language. The next day Paul took us on tour of Athens. How nice it was to have an air-conditioned vehicle waiting at the end of each stop in the city--it was 100F/40C that day. His knowledge of the city and Piraeus for our departure to the islands. Of the 11 times I've been to Greece, this was most pleasant taxi experience I've had. It clearly made our trip to Athens more enjoyable. The combination of Paul's pleasant demeanor, his wonderful car and the fact that he didn't pick up anyone else--sharing a taxi can de one of the less pleasurable experiences in Greece--is something any traveler would.

Thank you,

Hi Paul and Dimitri,
Thanks a million for the tour to Meteora--it was the highlight of my trip to Greece! As a middle-aged solo traveler with little time, you turned a potentially time-consuming and lonely journey into a sheer delight. Your amicable conversation and Greek hospitality were genuine and truly appreciated. Overall, a superb experience! I hope to see you again someday.

Warmest regards,

Hi Paul,
Just a note to let you know that we did manage to drive around Crete and live to tell the tale! Not nearly as stress-free as riding around in the back of your Mercedes. We really enjoyed the two days we spent with you. Seeing Delphi, Corinth, Mycenae etc. with you as a guide was great. You are very informative and considerate, even to the point of letting us shop when it was getting pretty late! Thanks for everything. We would both recommend you highly to anyone who might be going to Greece.

Hello Paul,
We promised to contact you soon after we got back to San Diego. We had a wonderful time in Greece. You and your taxi service had much to do with making our trip to Athens and Greece very special. It was our pleasure to get to know you and enjoy your company while using your taxi service to visit Sounion and enjoy a great sunset there. We were also glad that you recommended an alternative to our trip to Delphi. That part of our trip was also exciting. The canal was exciting to see. We will certainly recommend your taxi service to our friends as we tell them all about our trip to Greece. We were saddened by the events in America two weeks ago as you were. We had to leave Lesvos a few days early and return to Athens to arrange for our trip home due to all the security problems and cancellations by the airlines. We had hoped to contact you but you had indicated that you planed to take a week off and travel some yourself. Our trip back to the US was without incident but it took a very long time and included another stop. Have a good life, Paul.

Estimado Paul:
Mi familia y yo te agradecemos por los dos estupendos dias que nos hiciste pasar en Atenas y alrededores en nuestras recientes vacaciones, no solo por los esplendidos recorridos sino ademas por tus interesantes explicaciones y acertadas sugerencias en la eleccion de restaurantes y comidas . Creoque sin tus servicios hubiera sido imposible conocer tanto en tan poco tiempo, ello sin perjuicio del calor que molestaba al resto de turistas mientras nosotros llegabamos hasta la puerta con la comodidad del aire acondicionado .
Cordiales Saludos.

Dear Paul,
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter as a tribute to you and your services. I spent 2 weeks in Greece of which all or part of 8 days I was with Paul or in contact with him. He picked me up at the airport with a smile and delivered me to my hotel in Athens. My first impression was a well-dressed man in a clean car who spoke English very well, didn’t smoke and called me by name. He had maps, brochures, ideas and lots of general information about what I should do or see while in Greece. He was very helpful, informative and made me feel welcome from the start.

Days 3-5, I was with Paul for an exciting and interesting tour of Olympia, Delphi and Meteora. He was very gracious along the way always being concerned about my comfort and my interests. Time schedules were flexible to suit my needs. He was patient and accommodating with me when I wanted to either stop or backtrack for photo opportunities. He even was the photographer a few times. He knew lots of information and kept conversations lively which made the 5 hour driving spells fly by. I teased him that I had set up an office in his back seat.

I was joining a large tour group (600 people) back in Athens. One of our group’s excursions was to Corinth. When I shared with Paul the schedule for that day, he expressed a concern that I would not get to see much in the time allotted with so many people. He offered his services for that day and suggested that I find a few others in my group to come along. By this time, Paul had me spoiled with his high standard of personalized service, so I set off to recruit 1-3 companions in a group where I knew no one. In less than 24 hours, I had made such a great sales pitch that I had 7 folks lined up to go. Paul was surprised that I had worked so fast. As a delighted customer, it was easy.

I highly recommend Paul to anyone wanting to make the most of their time in Greece. He loves his job and loves making his clients happy. I hired a taxi driver and left Greece with a friend!

Dear Paul,
Lisa and I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful day you spent with us showing us around the Peloponnese. The knowledge and insight you provided, as well as your choice of places to visit was fantastic and right on for the time we had. Your insight into how Greece tourism (the Ferry system, your understanding of what islands offer what, logistical information pertaining to other sites we visited during the rest of our stay) works was an added invaluable service that helped us immensely during the rest of our stay as well. We came to Greece completely "winging" it with nothing other than our reservation with you and a hotel reservation for the night we arrived. And if we had it to do over, we wouldn't change a thing. You are a fantastic ambassador and our feeling is that no tour of Greece could be (or at least should be), complete without your guidance. The ONLY REGRET WE HAVE is that we didn't have someone snap a photo of us with you, since you are sure to be one of our fondest memories. Best of luck to you friend, and may you always be safe.

With Kindest Regards,
