GreekTaxi Testimonials

Hello Potoula,
I would like to thank you for your services and also to thank Konstantinos, who was our driver and a very good guide. I cannot say enough about him- he was professional, very thoughtful and very passionate about Greece. He took the time to explain each of the sites to us, even showing us guide books that he had and took us to a wonderful local place for lunch as well as showing us a number of sites that normally a tour bus would not take. It is people like him that truly know what excellent customer service is! We loved him! We would appreciate it if you could please convey this message to him. Also, I will be providing feedback to Trip Advisor about Konstantinos and PK Travel about the excellent service we received.

Sincerely,
Gina Park.


Hi Potoula,
We, all 16 of us, had the best time in Athens. Georgia, not sure of her spelling, was wonderful. She was the best tour guide of all the excursions we had taken while on our 12 day cruise and we took many excursions. She was very approachable, very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. She added facts and myths besides all the hard core historical facts that kept the tour even more interesting. As we know historical tours can get a little overbearing with all the facts, but, adding a little unknown fact or story holds people’s interest. We appreciated that added element. We also appreciated and told her, the use of photos of the original historical sites she held gave us a better perspective of what we were looking at. I, and I speak for everyone, thought Georgia was gracious, thoughtful, patient and smart, a wonderful tour guide.

Dimitrios was wonderful as well. He too was gracious, friendly knowledgeable and a great driver. He navigated us into close up, tight spots. He was also thoughtful and concerned for our wheelchair friend who was along. The restaurant he recommended was the only restaurant a tour guide suggested that was good, tasty and reasonably priced. We were treated very well at the restaurant and again the food was great. The other excursions were all set ups with the tour guide and almost every experience with dining was not worth it and we were sold a bill of goods. We all appreciated Dimitrios’ suggestion and prefaced it by telling us, we could try the place he liked or choose our own. We were happy!

Of all the stops on the cruise, Athens and Mykonos, Amalfi Coast and Tuscany were my favorite stops. A few others who hadn’t been to Athens felt the same way. I do plan on returning to visit the other Greek isles and Athens and will definitely be in touch. I wouldn’t consider another tour company in Athens. It was a pure pleasure from start to finish. Thank you so much for having such a nice group of people to represent your travel company.

Best Regards,
Marilyn


Hello Potoula,
Thank you for an absolutely wonderful tour of Athens on Sept. 17! Everything went smoothly and we truly enjoyed the tour with driver Dimitris and tour guide Evdokia! They were very professional and knowledgeable! We had a fantastic time visiting all the sites in the comfort of the minivan and be able to beat the crowds! Everyone loves Athens! What an amazing city! Many thanks to Dimitris for taking our two friends back to the port before the end of the tour. It was a hilarious experience at lunch in the Plaka area! We had so much fun! We will certainly recommend your tour company to others! If we ever in Athens again we will definitely use PK TRAVEL! Take care!

Hi Potoula,
We just got back from our Holland America Cruise and a short stay in Venice. I would like to thank you, PK Travel and especially Dimitrios who made our day in Athens a memorable one. Your service came as advertised, Dimitrios was waiting for us at the Cruise port, and he promptly devised an itinerary for the group. We proceeded to Athens while listening with fascination to Greek History and Mythology. I know that you have a disclaimer that your drivers are not licensed tour guides, but our evaluation of Dimitrios was one of a Professor of Greek History and Mythology who doubles as a taxi driver. Athens is a beautiful city that sells by itself, their archaeological sites are fascinating and rich in history but it is my experience that attention to little details is what makes an excursion memorable. Details, like finding a clean bathroom for a member of the group who was slightly indisposed, stopping to purchase bottled water for the group at his own expense and finally the warm embrace at the end of the excursion. These are personal touches that highly contributed to our experience and made our day in Athens a memorable one. Please in the name of the group extend a warm thank you to Dimitrios. We thoroughly enjoyed our Athens excursion and would highly recommend your services.

Thank You
Nat Mule


I want to thank you so much for a truly memorable day in Athens. I’m so happy we chose your tour service and taxi tour. Right from the beginning with our first email contact with Potoula to wonderful personal chauffeured taxi service with Konstantinos covering all the top highlights of Greece, you made our day unforgettable. All the great reviews I read were no exaggeration. Konstantinos you were so warm, inviting and enthusiastic. Thanks for making history come alive right before our eyes. Thanks for being very open and honest to our questions on present day Athens’s life too Joan & Skip were appreciate of being returned to ship after half a day and wished they could have had energy to continue for the afternoon. We dream of visiting Athens again and would use your taxi tour service and travel service again. We’re going to encourage friends and family to visit Athens and your beautiful country and definitely use your services. I also make a comment on Trip Advisor.

Best of luck.

Hi Potoula
I want to thank you for the excellent day we had yesterday on our tour of Athens. Dimitris was there when we arrived and so easy to find. The van was lovely and we were 7 so much space and Air conditioned. Dimitris had an excellent plan for us and off we went. Really appreciated getting to the Acropolis before the crowds and the heat. He gave us 1.5 hours which was perfect. Just the exact amount of time required. We were all back on time and off. Then the temple of Zeus, the drive around the city, the parliament for changing of the guard and then the agora and lunch in the plaka. Great recommendations. Then the top of mountain and finished the day at the museum. We could not have asked for more. The nicest touch was the water. I have spoke last night with other groups who had similar tour but not the little added info and water. Again from all of us, our thanks to you and your company and especially to Dimitri for being an excellent driver and so much information. Am writing my notes today and the info is a big help. Will pass on your company name to others who may be coming to Athens.

Hi Potoula
Thank you for arranging our tour of Athens while we were in port during our cruise on Celebrity Reflection. We had a great time and our driver Chris was excellent. He paced the tour very well and gave us enough information to appreciate the sites without needing a specific guide. His recommendation for lunch was wonderful. Before hand our teenage daughter was not sure if she would enjoy seeing all the archaeological sites, and she was pleasantly surprised how much she enjoyed the tour and she said Chris made the tour interesting (praise indeed). On our cruise, we did several tours -some privately arranged and some with Celebrity; We voted our tour with you the best and the highlight of our cruise. We loved Athens and before our visit we had not appreciated what a huge city it is. We hope to return to Athens and use your company again in the future. We have put a review on Trip Advisor to add to the rave reviews!

Best Wishes,
Sarah, Andy and Hannah Cooper


Hi Konstaninos,
Thank you, thank you and a thousand thank you’s. Our visit to Athens was the highlight of our vacation not only because of the beautiful / historical city of Athens but more importantly, you’ve given us the reason why Athens is so special. Your knowledge about your city clearly shows that you are very passionate about what you do. I admire that in a person. You’ve also given my family and I every reason why we need to go back to Greece especially Athens in the near future. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Very much appreciated. We are now in Venice and we will be heading back to Toronto early tomorrow . We will never forget you my friend and hopefully, we can meet again in Athens soon. Thank you again and all the best with your family especially your children.

Best Regards,
Virgil Alday


Hi Potoula & Paul
Thank you so much for organising our day tour which was brilliant! I just wanted to let you know that we found our friendly driver, “Jimmy”/Dimitri, to be the perfect gentleman who calmly and efficiently took us round the sites of your wonderful city without rushing us. His extensive knowledge of the history and mythology of all we saw meant that we really didn’t need a licensed tour guide and could soak up the sights and atmosphere in a more relaxed way. Jimmy also has an impressive memory for dates and statistics about everything and my husband, Stuart (who is an economist in his job), enjoyed chatting with him about the issues facing Greece at the moment too… you have a multi-talented driver indeed! I won’t hesitate in recommending Athens by Taxi to all my friends visiting the city in the future.

Thanks again.
Regards,
Vicky


Potoula,
I have to tell you we had a GREAT time in Athens. Your driver, George, was outstanding, very knowledgeable, very professional but what I was most impressed with is that he CARED! He cared that we had a good time, he cared about what we wanted, he cared about making sure our visit was great, that we saw what we wanted to see, that we had the time to see things, he cared that we had a great Greek lunch, he cared that our son was having a fun time, he cared that we knew about Greece, and its people and its culture and its history.  We fell in love with Athens, in a day, and in great part due to the great driver we had, and to your travel service!

Thank you!
-Andres Naranjo.


ATHENS: www.greektaxi.gr. Kalomiri’s Family Mercedes. EXCEPTIONAL. I learned of them on here. I used them. 500% satisfied. I traveled to Athens and was misconnected….Nikko simply rescheduled me, AND had the sense to put a sign up for my travel companion who was arriving earlier than I, to intercept him. Athens had public protests and he was able to take an alternate route and get us to our hotel…the people that booked the expensive Seabourn package in ATH had to walk several blocks and were delayed to the point of making the ship with less than an hour to spare. They had a disaster both into the city and out to the port…I had a luxury mercedes for a quarter of that price with reliable and intelligent service. They do more than airport/pier transport…they do tours, etc. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. They performed incredibly during a local protest, closed city center, and peak demand and also a misconnected passenger. BRAVO.

Hi Potoula,
We want to thank Paul and Georgia for the absolutely wonderful tour of Athens. You made everything so easy for our small group, from the easy booking process, to being early for the pick up at the ship, and to getting to the sites before the rest of the crowds. Georgia was amazing with her knowledge of all the archaeological sites. We learned so much about Greek history. Her knowledge was truly extraordinary and there was rarely a moment when she wasn’t providing us with information and history. We are also grateful to Paul for his driving expertise and his sense of humor. He was always close by ready to pick us up in his comfortable, air conditioned mini-van after our visits to the sites.  As an added bonus he always had cold bottled water ready and waiting – a very welcome sight on a hot day! We highly recommend PK Travel and would not hesitate to use your services again in future.

Thank you so much.
Kindest regards,
Robert and Shirley Livingston


Hi Potoula,
The tour of Athens was terrific! Our driver did a great job and gets highest recommendation. Tour included Acropolis (early AM) which avoided the crowds, Acropolis Museum, Greek and Roman Agora, Museum of Archaeology, Cyclades Museum, Temple of Zeus, changing of the guard, and others. This is a great way to make the best use of time in Athens if you have only 1 or 2 days there.
Athens is a great city and we hope to return for a more extended duration.

Appreciatively,
Seth and Judy Malin


Potoula, Delighted to have used your services. Demetrious was a most gracious driver and guide–sharing at the beginning of the tour exactly what we would be seeing and visiting during the day along with promptly greeting us at the designated meeting place early in the day. At one point, a public demonstration began near the palace at which time he quickly herded our group to the safety of the van where we continued on with no incident or concern. We are very impressed with the Greek culture–particularly his sharing the family olive growing. A few of our group said they would be back in late fall to assist with the olive harvesting. :) :):):) Also, thank you for all your prompt correspondence as we planned our tour. We’ll strongly recommend your agency to our on-line contacts as well as personal friends. Good luck as you continue showing your fine city to other travelers.

Warmly,
Dolores Alderman

Dear Potoula,
We had a wonderful time visiting Greece. And your arrangements in Katakolon and Athens were excellent. For our large group of 19, the bus worked out great. The guides in both the places were very knowledgeable, flexible and helpful. The drivers were very courteous and the one in Athens even bought my father a drink. It was a great trip!

All the best,
Sanjay


Hi Potoula,
We have a very pleasant experience using services from you and PK travel. It is because of your diligent communication that makes us trusting PK travel in the first place. But overall thank you so much for assigning Mr. Dimitri as our driver. He is very professional: he always showed up before the scheduled time and helps out with our luggage, and I must say that the taxi is sparkling clean. He is very considerate: he never drives in any way that makes us nervous and especially he slows down when making turn while my kids are napping in the back of the car. He is very knowledgeable in Greek history, mythology, and tourist sites: my kids took a year of ancient Greece history and mythology in middle school but we found out that we learn a lot from him. And last but not least, he is the best English-speaking person during our 11-day vacation in Greece. Please forward the attached photos and say thank you to him for us. Thanks and warm regards.
Sam & Family


I must say that the tour far exceeded what we expected. We enjoyed it so much and meeting Nick as well. He certainly was much more than a driver. He answered so many of our questions and made this tour very memorable. His knowledge of Greek culture and history was phenomenal! We intend to write a review on Cruise Critic and Tripadvisor so that others may enjoy your tour company as well.

Thank you for a wonderful tour!
Linda Quinn and Daniel Lafrance


Hi Potoula – I just wanted to let you know again how much I appreciate all of your hard work setting up our tour, and also answering all of my questions so promptly. I was very nervous about trying to see so much in such a short time plus get to our ship, but Demetrius did a fantastic job. He was very informative and also attentive to our needs. He made sure we had the time to get out of the cab and walk around the Ancient Agora, which we found fascinating. And at one point, when we were trying to see the Changing of the Guard, he actually ran toward me shouting to let me know how to get to a better place to see. So he went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we had the best tour possible and my husband and I greatly appreciated it! Thank you so much again for everything – your company did a fantastic job!! I hope to come back to Athens some day (I loved your city) and I will certainly not forget you.

Highest regards,
Patti


PK,
Just wanted to send a note of thanks for the private tour with Georgia while we were in Athens over Holiday. Georgia was on-time and ready to hit the ground running for our tour, she was very thorough and let us ask questions along the way. The pace was great and we had a wonderful time. I highly recommend her as a guide, especially for an English group – her English was outstanding! Thanks again for setting this up!

Thanks,
Jamie


Potoula,
We just wanted to say a huge Thank You for the wonderful tour we had in Athens, 20 May 2013 with Dimitri. The level of service and attention to detail was First Class. The meeting point for pick up ship side was a blessing for our group. Theoni was also an excellent guide for the ancient sites and archaeological information. The tour program was perfect for our diverse group of six persons. For anyone traveling via cruise ship this is a perfect way to get to see Athens and Acropolis/Areopagus in ways the ship booked shore excursions cannot provide. We were all very pleased with the service and product your company provided. Being a small business owner I too appreciate the Family owned model you have and attention to customer service. When our “tour guide” was not with us on non archaeological sites, Dimitri was a wonderful resource on so much Athenian and Greece information. Please give our greetings to Dimitri and would love to come see the Olive Farm in Sparta area! Good luck on the harvest. We look forward to recommending you to anyone we know traveling to Greece.
Jim Hambrick


Potoula,
Bev and I wanted to say thank you so much for today! Dimitris was a wonderful host and driver. You might like to read our blog post from today.

Hello,
I can highly recommend your company, PK Travel. You were prompt and courteous. On the drive to the hotel, we decided to take a city tour in the afternoon. This was just what we wanted because we did not want to nap in the afternoon after our transatlantic flight. Every one we had contact with spoke excellent English and it was a great tour. Even the restaurant recommendation was excellent. Thank you for such good service, it made my stay in Athens so much more enjoyable.

Regards,
Carol R.


Dear Friends,
What a a wonderful business you have and truly a delightful family. Only wish we could have met all of you, as we enjoyed Dimitri so much, and also Niko, as he was the one who took us to the airport.

Potoula, I thank you for all your helpful e-mails and the great information you sent before we left on our trip. You were so thorough, which made it easy to choose what to do for the two full days we were in Athens.  We appreciated your ideas, which you communicated so well. Thank you for answering all my many questions with such kindness.

Nikos, it was a delight to meet you and so happy you were the one to take us to the airport. We did not expect it to be another member of the family, as we were expecting a driver other than family.  You have a great sense of humor for so early in the morning! We only hope that your day went well, as you truly had a full schedule.

Dimitri, what can we say? We could easily adopt you as a son! You were truly a kind, thoughtful, patient and delightful young man. You had such great insight into all the places we were visiting and it was so helpful to have all that information before we got to each destination. Loved your sense of humor as well.  It is always fun to have a good laugh. A merry heart is good medicine… Thank you also for letting Shawna tag along with us. Being we had only met her at the airport in Istanbul on our way to Athens. I know she enjoyed all that we saw and it made her time in Athens so much better, as her husband was busy all day long each day with his business. It’s always fun to meet new friends.

The restaurants you suggested were great and loved the food. Especially the one in Naplion – I ate the Feta Cheese with “gusto”, as what we get in the states is so salty, (as you stated), and I rarely eat it at home. The tomatoes were superb, between Feta and Tomatoes – I truly ate till I was stuffed! Thank you also for stopping and treating us to the oranges. We had one when we got back to the hotel and another in the morning before your brother picked us up to go to the airport.

I must thank you for all your efforts in getting my debit card back after it fell in the hole at the bank.  You worked so hard in getting the tool to take off the metal piece in front of the machine. I still can’t believe how quickly that happened; it just flipped out of my hand in an instant. Thank the Lord, my prayers were answered the next morning when they went to the basement and it was there and not buried in the “bowels” of the basement walls.

You are a delight and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for seeing that we had such a great experience in Greece.  It would be fun to come again and see more of the country, but that might be a hopeful wish only. You can thank your parents, from us, for raising such a wonderful son. You certainly learned and respected well their authority in your growing up years. It shows. We wish you all the best and have a great year.

Sandie and Maynard Johnson


Hello Potoula,
I am sorry it has taken me so long to write a comment about our incredible day in Athens with \”King Constantine\”! We arrived on our first stop with the Norwegian Spirit May 2nd and were met by Constantine. From the first moment we met him we realized we had nothing to worry about! In fact he kept telling us to leave it all to him and he would do any worrying that needed to be done! He had us to the Acropolis long before any tour buses arrived and it felt like we had the place almost to ourselves at first! We had no line ups for tickets and it was nice and cool. When we finished there we passed by a long line up of people waiting to buy tickets and felt so grateful we weren’t in it. Constantine was there waiting for us with water and a delicious treat, and then took us to see so many incredible sites around Athens. We stopped for lunch at a fantastic restaurant near the Plaka and I had the best greek salad I’ve ever tasted. Then off to the ancient Roman agora! We absolutely loved Constantine’s attitude when he dropped us off somewhere, he would say just take all the time you need to see this and I’ll be waiting for you here. We never felt any pressure to rush, and he was always there waiting! As we drove back to the port he stopped to buy us some baklavah (wrong spelling!) to have on the ship as we sailed away, and we did just that remembering how lucky we were to have Constantine as our guide in Athens! Thank you so much Constantine and PK Travel! We will highly recommend you to everyone we know who is going to tour Athens!

with much gratitude,
Jan, Bill, Jackie and Dave


Hello Potoula
we had a wonderful day in and around Athens. The drive along the coast to Cape Sounion was lovely and of course the temple of Poseidon was quite spectacular. We then had lunch in the Plaka, did some shopping, and at your brother’s suggestion visited the ancient Agora. Demetrius was great. He’ is so knowledgeable about the history and mythology hard to believe he has a masters degree in engineering and not history. Please send him our regards.

Sincerely
Mitchell & Barbara


We enjoyed the trip to Athens very much through your Service – we really had a good time – Dimitri was very knoeledgeble, polite & helpful – he made the trip to Athens a memorable one for our group! Will def recommend you guys to all my friends – Good Luck !!

Malath


Potoula,
Our two days in Athens with Constantine and Dimitri were great! We saw everything we wanted to see. They are both wonderful guides and very nice people!
I’ll be sure to continue to recommend your company and to contact you again the next time we are in Athens!

Thanks again!
Ada


Hi Paul,
We had a wonderful trip to Athens. I cannot thank you enough for your efficiency, knowledge and flexibility. You provided a fabulous tour filled with great information. We loved our short stay in Athens very much. We will certainly be passing on your contact information to those interested in seeing the beauty of Greece. We loved your country! It is full of breathtaking views! Thanks again!

Kara Boynton


Hi Potoula,
We had a very enjoyable tour of Athens with Alex. He was a great driver and we really enjoyed his stories, information and the tour. Thank you!!!

Lisa Minnich


Hi Potoula
Thank you very much for the wonderful holiday we had in Athens. Please thank Dimitri & Paul on our behalf, they were both a great help and source of information. Especially Dimitri since he was with us all the days we were in Athens. Please don’t forget to thank Georgia on our behalf, she was very patient(we made her wait quite a lot) and very good at answering all our queries. I think of all the travels we have undertaken throughout the world up to now, yours was the best service we have experienced. We felt welcome and at ease at the Airport itself when Dimitri met us for the first time, by the time we left Greece, I can safely say he was our close friend. I will gladly recommend your service to anybody who wants to visit Greece. I have shot some pictures of Dimitri and Georgia, they may not be very professional. I have attached the pictures here with the mail. Thanks once again. I hope to contact you when I get my family to Athens.

Regards,
Prabeer


We are going to contact the office in LA where we bought our MCS tickets and learned about your service. We continue to be absolutely thrilled by the time we spent with you. Thank you so much. We hope and pray that good things will grow in Greece and the people will not suffer. Thank you for your many kindnesses. We felt that Athens is a very sacred place.

Marge Whitman


Potoula,
Thank you for organizing. My parents said that they – and everyone else on the tour – had a great time. They said the guide was very knowledgeable and informative. They were also impressed with the driving and how skilled the driver was at navigating the narrow streets of Athens! We will definitely recommend you to anyone else we know who travels to Athens.

Regards,
Dina


Potoula,
A few of us in the group had been to Athens in 2009 and had considered staying on the ship because we thought we had seen all there was to see there. After our day in Athens with Petrus we came away with a completely different view of your city. Petrus was courteous, knowledgeable, accommodating and perfect for our return trip to Athens. I will gladly recommend him and PK Travel to anyone I know that will be traveling there.

Thanks again.
Patti


Hi Potoula,
My stay, transport and everything else in Greece was amazing. My trip started off lavishly thanks to the pick from Alex. Alex is a great guy. Please give him my regards. Me and my wife will never forget the trip to Delphi. It was the best decision we took. The drive to Delphi in that crazy rainy weather was just amazing. The sight seeing and the lunch in the village were just exactly what we were looking for. I get to know about your services from a friend who visited Greece last year. And I m glad I get to know about you guys. I am surely passing the word around. Enjoy!

Thanks A Lot!!
Kumar Vikram


Dear Potoula,
the tour was great! Everybody loved it! Some people on the tour have been to Athens before and they told me they have never had a better excursion. I will keep you in mind if I will be in Athens again.

Sincerely,
Svetlana


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

Dana Roman (and Mitchel)


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/

Sanjay Bhasin


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

Thanks again,
Suzanne Fox


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

Regards,
Bev


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!

Melinda and Bill Cohen


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.”

Paula Thompson


Thank you for the excellent service. I will pass the good word to whoever I can. As a aircrew member, our opinions get around! Will certainly use your services again.

Paul


On behalf of our Tour Group, we want to thank you once again for your kind and excellent service. You made our trip to Athens and Ancient Corinth one that will be fondly remembered. We also thank you for the personal care and attention given to our group and the knowledge you processed on the various landmarks and sites we visited. You provided an Awesome Guide! We will defintely give you a 5-star rating and let others know how pleased we were with your service. Again, thank you so much. May you continue to prosper and be in good health, and have a wonderful 2013.

“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!!!!

Sincerely,
Ellis and Normadine Kirkpatrick and Walter and Bev Glenn


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,
Sue Beckworth


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,
Terri Matthews


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
Breezie, John and Mike


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!

Martha


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”!!!

Sincerely,
David & Marilyn Knight


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,
Sue Maher


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!!

Best regards,
Dana Mobley


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.

Keith


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

Renato Dias


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,
Jamie k


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

Hi Potoula,
Just like to say that we all had a great day In Athens- Paul and the charming Yiota really looked after us, was very interesting and informative and we were very impressed with Athens. ( a pleasant surprise for me personally) I will in time get around to leaving a positive review on TripAdvisor. Wishing you continued success with your business,

Best regards,
James


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,
Terry


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,
Elizabeth


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,
Jean & Thom Nelson

We enjoyed a delightful day with Nicholas in the Athens and Corinth area. He was a great driver and very informative plus listened to our itinerary of the areas that we wanted to include on our tour. I will recommend your company to future clients to Athens.

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
Christine


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.

Best regards,
Mandy


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

Thank you for an excellent experience.

Nancy and David Kyle


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!

Phil Shmerling


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.
Sudipa


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,
Geoff, Deb and Cameron Doyle


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,
Anita


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

Thank you again,
Luanne Webb and family


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

Kindly,
Laura


Potoula:
My sincere thanks for a great day today!

Yours,
Howard


Muy estimada Potoula:
Te agradecemos muchisimo todas tus atenciones y eficacia, ya nos dijo tu papa que tu eres la organizadora de toda la empresa. Estuvimos muy contentos y satisfechos con sus servicios, por favor saluda mucho a tu papa y dile que mi hermana le agradece mucho sus saludos. Cuenten con nuestras mejores referencias para nuestros conocidos que quieran visitar Atenas.

Gracias nuevamente,
Ma Luisa


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!
Diane


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.

S. F. Lai (from Taiwan)


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.

Anne Miller


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
Stephanie


PAUL– We had a wonderful day with Alex. He did an excellent job and our memories of Athens are outstanding. You have a very good service and we’ll recommend it highly.

Warmest regards- Mike


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.

Sally Grossman


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

Natalie


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.
Leesa


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
Margaret Fabian


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,
Alfonso Pino


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.

Thanks again
Merilyn & Cassandra


Hi Potoula and Paul,
We loved the tour in Athens! In fact, our entire group of 16 felt that this was their favourite tour of all. Thank you so much and please thank our guide!

Samantha


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.

Regards,
Mary Anne


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

Best Regards,
Ellen Weitzman


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,
Art & Pat Davis


Hi Potoula!
We had a FABULOUS time and of course, Nick was the BEST. We will be posting good reviews on TripAdvisor once we recover from the trip. Thanks again and tell Nick—thanks too!

Patty


Hi Potoula!
Thank you to your company for our half day tour in Athens. It was one of our favorites of the cruise! I know I am not the only one to think this, I have heard from others on my tour, too. :) I want to acknowledge and compliment our tour guide who really was one of the best of our entire vacation. She was top-notch! The vehicle was so comfortable and spacious, the driver so pleasant and professional. Everything was perfect! Thank you again, Potoula for taking such good care of us from beginning to end! It was a pleasure working with you and I hope one day to return and I will be sure to use your services again! =) Please keep up the good work!

Take good care,
Debbie


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!!!!

Suzanne


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
Roger, Ellen, Andrew, Emily


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,
Melinda Patenaude


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.

Best Regards
Peter, Antoinette, Rebekah and Jessica Mifsud.


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

Stacey Kuhn


Dear Potoula
I just wanted thank you. Once again we had a great day. Penny was absolutely fantastic. We could not have asked for a better guide. I am very grateful for everything you have done for us at such short notice.

Regards
Joanna


Hi Potoula,
Yes, we are home safe and sound. We had a fabulous vacation. We love your dad!! We also enjoyed meeting your cousin and your brother. Everything was great. More later as I am leaving for work. Thanks for everything.

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.
Ronald, David and Tom


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.

Carol Brewer


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

Cheers
Raji


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!
Denise, John, Jackie and John Merle


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


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,
Dee


Potoula and Paul,
We had a marvelous day in Athens. Dimitrios was a great driver and very knowledgable about history of Athens and Greece. He got us in and out of sights quickly and gave us 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.

Regards,
Ron Rogers


Dear konstantinos, dear potoula, dear paul
thank you very much for the 100% top service. our guide and driver konstantinos was perfect. we highly recommend your company.

simon & oana camartin


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

Thanks
Reji


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

Diane


Dear Potoula,
Thank you for helping us arrange our most wonderful family day in Athens. Nick was the perfect combination of fun, informative, professional, casual and respectful. He took us on a journey through Athens that consisted of both the “must see” places and the places we asked for. We cannot wait to return to Athens!! Thank you again for your help and for allowing us the pleasure of Nick’s company for the day.

Fondlly and with warmest regards,
Sharon and Family


Hi Potoula,
We just returned to Australia yesterday. Thank you, we did enjoy our tour with Chris very much. He spoke English very well, was very knowledgeable and very helpful. We particularly appreciated him taking us up to the Acropolis early and before all the tour buses arrived. I am more than happy to recommend your company on “Trip Advisor” some time soon after the jetlag has worn off!

Kind regards,
Kathryn Rofe (on behalf of Barry Rofe, & Richard & Vicki Mundy)


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

Warm regards,
Adeline


Hi Potoula
I am writing to let you know my family and I had a great experience in Athens. Please can you pass my thanks onto George and your father for taking care of us on the day and also to yourself, thank you for convincing me to go with your tour company. I will in future advise fellow cruisers to book with yourselves.

Many regards
Patricia


Dear Paul,
Right now we are still recovering from the tong cruise trip. We rave really enjoyed the tour in Athens and the places we visited. They are all beautiful and memorable places to visit.. Thank you four your kind service. We do hope that we can use your service again when we visit Athens and Greece in the near future.

Regards,
Shinta


Hi Potoula,
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.

Kim and Dave Yurek,
St. Thomas, Ontario Canada


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

Dina


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,
Dion Chan


Hi Potoula,
The tour was excellent and Takis was outstanding, a wonderful advert for your services. Please pass on our thanks to him from both me & my wife Joan and our friends from Australia who were on the tour with us. I shall be writing a suitably glowing review and posting on Tripadvisor.

Regards,
Jim


Hi Potoula
We were so happy with Paul – he was fantastic and we will certainly contact you if we are in Greece again. Our time in Greece was wonderful – we loved it. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family and I will give your details to my travel agent as well.

Thanks again
Evelyn Scott


We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Nikolas did a great job and made our visit to Athens much more memorable. We would highly recommend the tour and Nikolas to others.


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.

Susan and Doug Williams


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.

Sincerely
Dennis Tungate


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.

King regards
Sue and Peter


Hi Potoula,
The tours were amazing. We feel very blessed to have had that opportunity. It made our whole Athens experience so much better. And thanks for your help as well.

Regards,
Sharon


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,
Edie


Thanks Paul your tour was amazing:

Hi Potoula,
We had such a wonderful time in Greece. Paul and Constantine were fantastic guides. They both had great recommendations and really made our trip special. The next time we are back in Athens, we will definitely be using your services again. :-) Take care.

Regards,
Shira Tarby


Dear Paul,
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
service on your website. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to further recommend your services.

Sincerely,
Steve, Lori & Ryan Harlan

PS–Ryan said he had an awesome time!!


Dear Mr. Kalomiris:
we had a wonderful time. I’m glad I choose your company. Be sure to tell your son thank you for the treat! Thank you.

Sincerely,
Nicole


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!

Best Regards….
Beth Beheler & Ginger Strivelli


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!

Susan G.


Ok, I am from New Jersey, so I am not afraid to say what I have on my mind….. Seriously! Came to Greece with my son for 4 days (he is a student in Florence) as a quick get away from Italy that would have interesting sites to see. I got Greek Taxi’s name from this site and e-mailed them directly from the States. Paul and Nick came up with ideas for two days of tours that also fit my budget. Their suggestions were PERFECT and the attention to detail and our wishes was extraordinary. We were picked up each day in a near new Mercedes. Nick made my son’s “day” when he went out of his way to find him his first Starbucks in four months. This is a family owned and run business that really did make us feel like they were looking out for us. The tips on shopping and dining were excellent. The tour guide was young and enthusiastic. You always get what you pay for, and I am sure they aren’t the cheapest in town, but, the value we got was awesome. I can also tell you that their prices are 20 to 25 percent less than our hotel suggested (Hotel Bretagne) we pay from their guides. There is no possible way another guide company could be better. I think we’ll return this summer…. in part because of Nick and Paul… +30 6972-030853/admin@greektaxi.team21.me. Have a great trip and TRUST these guys.

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,
Krista


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

Thanks again,
Brandy and Kendal Mouser


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,
Pam and Paul


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.

Warmest Regards,
Joe Siegel & Joanna Baker


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!

Thanks again,
Lyne


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. I will recommend Greek taxi and specifically Konstantine to anyone that is going to be going to Greece. 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.

Cheers,
John & Kerrie McColl


Paul,
recently our family travelled to Greece on vacation. We decided to book some touring with www.greektaxi.team21.me and we are glad we did! We learned more about Greece’s history and sights than any other Canadians could. Our driver, Dimitris, was knowledgable, funny and very accommodating to our requests. He was always early to pick us up, provided suggestions on sites and restaurants and even gave us advice on attractions to see on the days we did not have tours booked. I highly recommend you use www.greektaxi.team21.me, they are professional and an excellent tour company. Paul, Dimitris and all their folks are a pleasure to deal with and make the tour process a breeze.

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

Tom and Shelley Landon


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,
Rick and LaVerna Stapler


Hi Paul,
I just want to tell you that Demetrius did an excellent job in showing us Greece; we have enjoyed his Greece’s history especially me. I will definitely share my good experienced about your company in Trip Advisor reviews. I wish I had met you when we were there; but Demetrius told us that you have a large group of people for Acropolis tour. Again, thank you for everything; my brother is coming here in Greece at the end of this month; I will ask him if he had booked his tour with someone else or else I will recommend you to him.

God Bless
Jennifer Torino


Hi Paul,
Thank you for all your help… very glad it worked out! Our driver (Chris, I believe it was?) was absolutely amazing… courteous, safe, professional, and even took us around downtown Athens a little so we could see some of the sites on our way to the airport. We will definitely use you again should we ever be lucky enough to return to Athens, and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know who may be travelling there!

Thanks again,
Kevin


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!

Kind Regards,
Dennis Maiotti

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

Regards
Gavin and Allison


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,
Alice Martin


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.

Tory


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 8:30 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.

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.

Kirk


I was chosen to be the person in our group of 10 to choose our shore excursions in each of our ports for our recent cruise. From our first communication, I knew that Paul at www.greektaxi.team21.me was the right choice. When we disembarked, he was waiting right where he said would be. His van was comfortable and clean. Paul was informative, entertaining, efficient and flexible. All of us agreed that I had made the right decision. We would certainly tour with him again when we return to Athens.

Thanks again Paul,
Denise


Paul–
We had a wonderful time. As you probably expected, Nick was great, very comfortable with wise advice about how to conduct our tour. I really appreciate him sharing your country with us and meant to tell him that.

Respectfully yours,
Steve Kissinger

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!!!


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

BR,
Anssi


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! He definitely made our trip special!! Again Thank you!!!!

My wife and I visited Athens for one day via a cruise stop. We booked a half day tour of Athens through the Greek Taxi web site. Everything was as advertised. We were met at the pier by Constantine, the car was clean and very nice. Constantine proved to be an excellent tour guide. He used photographs to show “before” and after images of all attractions, explained culture, pointed out sights, got us to the changing of the guards on time and in an excellent location, answered all questions, etc. His English was very good. It was a most enjoyable and entertaining tour of Athens. We most highly recommend Greek Taxi, and we will use them again on any future visit.

Hi Paul,
The quick answer is YES! We thoroughly enjoyed our very interesting day with Demitrius /ios? He was a mine of information, his English was excellent, our tour was very relaxed and comfortable. We can happily recommend your service to other visitors to Athens.

Thanks again,
Ken and Sandra.

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.

What a fabulous time we had on our tour to Corinth and Athens. Nick gave us a wonderful and informative tour. We could not have been more pleased. Thanks to you and Nick! We will refer you to our friends!

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

We were on a cruise visiting Athens, Greece on January 27, 2011. We hired Greektaxi for our guided tour in Athens. We hired a driver as well as a licensed tour guide. We were met at the port by our driver and our guide Anna. We chose the half day Athens tour. Our guide, Anna, was with us every step of the way. She was professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Greektaxi. Mr. Paul communicated by email with us to set this tour up. We thought it a real plus to have a knowledgeable guide as Anna with us every step of the way.

Many thanks to her and Paul,
Barb Bazen


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 Dimitrios 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.

Thanks,

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 Paul -
Just arrived back from our cruise last night. Yes, all of us very much indeed enjoyed our tour of Athens and the all of its many attractions. Our lunch in the Plaka was great! Petros did a very nice job for us and was a very good guide and a very caring man.

Thanks!

Hi Paul,
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.

Best.

I just want you to know that Konstantinos 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.

Hi Paul,
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.

Thank you again

Hi Paul,
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.

Paul,
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,

Hi Paul,
Just wanted to let you know we had a great time today. Konstantinos 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.

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!

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 Konstantinos, 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 Konstantinos 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! Konstantinos 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,

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,

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. Hope you continue to prosper and again Thank-you.

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!

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 – 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,
Ben, Carol, and Sam Greenspan

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),

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!

Hi Paul,
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. :)

Kindest regards,

Dear Paul,
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 8 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.

I just got the credit card bill for the tour you gave for my group on May 2nd. It reminded me to write and thank you for the hospitality and the excellent tour you and your guide gave us. I wrote a Cruisecritic review of our trip and included your name and company with a very favorable review. If you ever need a reference please feel free to use my name, phone number and e-mail address to any of your potential customers. Again, thanks for a memorable day in your wonderful country.

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.

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.

Sincerely,
Judy and Ralph Weir

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”

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,

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.

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.

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.”

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,

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.

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

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.

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.

The International Olympic Committee’s Marketing program was extremely successful and a significant element of that success was the very efficient and supportive service you provided. You have shown your good qualities and they have proved invaluable to our common achievement of the high goals set. I wish you all the best in your adventures to come.

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.

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.

Sincerely,
Carol Rasmussen and Marilyn Rossman

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.

Sincerely,

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,
Lisa & Charlie
