“Best service ever”
George was professional and kind! We all enjoy his guidance. The car is luxurious and the service as well…
“Reliable and fun”
Originally, we were only taking a taxi from the airport (from Santorini) to our hotel in Athens, when George (our driver) asked us if we’d seen some things during our stay. Most of them we hadn’t seen yet, so he offered to pick us up at 7 am the morning after, take us on a short tour and drop us off at the airport at 11 am. The tour was short, but incredibly nice and we saw a lot on our way to the airport. George was very nice to us and we’ll definitely call him the next time we’re in Athens!
“Reliable and Knowledge Driver!”
We just left Athens after having a quick change of plans in our itinerary due to the Seaman strike and flew in to spend one night in Athens. We met John at the airport to take us to our hotel, the Grande Bretagne Hotel. John was extremely knowledgeable about not only the Athens area but all of Greece. He made us feel safe, secure and comfortable. So much so, he hired him during our ride to pick us up the next day. John showed up over an hour early the next day to ensure we had plenty of time (as there was a major protest outside of the location we were in) and could leave when we were ready to plan for additional traffic. He once again made our trip extremely comfortable and took a different route to educate us on a new area of the city. We would highly recommend hiring John for any tours or transportation needs in Athens!
We meet Giorgio at the airport and he picked us up to the hotel. He is a great person, we had a nice travel along the cost with an expert touristic guide!
“Excellent, always in time”
The best and always in time. You van always count on George the driver. Best vans. Clean, spacious (7 pax, luggage included). Next time I’ll make an appointment again.
“Tour of Athens Historical Sites.”
Very helpful. Got us into sites before the crowds. Helped find an excellent local cafe for lunch in Plaka. Accommodated all our requests. He was very forthcoming with information on life in Athens.
“Fabulous Service at a realistic price”
We stepped off our air conditioned cruise ship in temperatures in excess of 35degrees with very little enthusiasm for a days sightseeing, but with a huge desire to see all that we could on our one day visit to Pireaus and Athens. As we looked around we saw George Panagiotou the driver with an immaculate 7 seat Mercedes ‘air conditioned’ vehicle. We approached him and asked for a price, which when shared by 6 was very reasonable. George gave us all very cold bottles of water and we set off…….first to the temple of Zeus (here we bought tickets to that and the Acropolis (which saved us a big queue later on) he then drove us to a fabulous viewing point for the Acropolis and over Athens, from where we could see our ship. Next we headed to see the changing of the guard at the parliament building which we would never have seen without George’s knowledge. And then he dropped us at the Acropolis where we climbed the hill to see the Parthenon, WOW!!!!!!! He then returned us to the ship safely.
We saw so much, George was very knowledgeable, engaging and friendly. His good English was also bonus as he was able to tell us so much about the area and its sights.
Thanks George, would not hesitate in getting into your vehicle again if we are in Athens and hope others do so too.
Visited August 2016
We used the van to get from Athens airport to Piraeus port and enjoyed a luxurious drive with a welcoming driver.
A week later we took a bus for 10 people for a 12h drive around Athens and again the bus was nothing less than Luxurious new bus and the driver was not only welcoming but also took us to all iconic places of Athens with shot explanations and a lot of patience to our desires. Recommended, I will use this service again.

George and John were excehellent drivers and very professional. George checked on us regularly, just to make sure we were satisfied and safe. If i return to Greece, I will be sure to use George again.
Thank you for assisting in our family’s travel arrangements and making the trip so successful.
I appreciate your identifying and modifying our itinerary in response to President Putin’s visit to Greece and providing as little disruption to our plans as possible.
I must express to you that Tasos was absolutely outstanding. He was friendly, very considerate and courteous, and extremely helpful at every step of our journey. He is an asset to your organization.

I booked my Athens tour with you on 3rd May and John was the person who showed us around. The intent of this mail is to thank you for the amazing experience we had with your company. You were always prompt in your e-mail reverts, accomodated our last minute change of plan and sent us a person as amazing as John :). John was a perfect guide during the day and showed us the place with loads of smiles and happiness :). Would cherish these sweet memories forever
Please convey our love to John as well and a big thanks to you again

George was outstanding in helping our family of five move around Athens. Although we did not have time to take any excursions outside of Athens, we would have chosen George to show us around.
A real gentleman!

Aristotelis thank you for the unforgettable city tour to my cousin NIkos and his family from Boston!
I the outset, let me say that Greece is an AMAZING country: the mileau, the people and the food. Have been to 15 countries, and Greece is in the top 1%.
We did the Best of Greece Tour by Trafalgar. Not only was the tour well-priced, we had the best Tour Director ever. Everthing was well-organized, and the Tour Director made each person feel special.
So, check out Greece. ..and give Trafalgar a shot. Hsppy traveling!
George picked us up at the airport after a week of volunteering on Lesvos. He quickly cheered us up and got us excited about seeing some of Athens on our last day in Greece. He took us to the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Olympic Stadium, and the most beautiful overlook of the entire city. George is a true professional and we feel so lucky that he was our guide!
We really had a good experience with George, he took us from and back to the airport to our hotel and also from and back to the port where the cruise ship arrives, all went very well. Nice clean and new Mercedes van/all OK.
We got a very good service with George. We used him twice. A very good driver, so helpfull and nice with us. Even the car was perfect, nothing to say.
I recommend really this company to everbody gooing to Athenes.
After a long trip finally I arrive to Athens and get the BEST service from Best travel and the BEST Aristotelis. I really love this time and get full energy.
Excellent service with excellent minivan for sure I will use the same company and I highly recommended to anyone!!!
Wonderful tour guide, George; very familiar with the city and the vicinity surrounding Athens, including Delphi. Would definitely use him again.
Six of us wanted a more personal tour of Athens than our cruise ship excursion list offered. Our driver George was at the pier and quickly gained our trust that he could provide us what we were looking for. The vehicle was exceptionally clean and air conditioned. He brought us to the major sites that we requested and patiently waited while we toured and had lunch. George provided water to us at no extra charge. I highly recommend Private Best Day Tours in Athens.
We only had one day to explore Athens. We were picked up at of cruise terminal promptly. We were shown all of the major attractions. The tour guide and the driver were both friendly and professional. The van was also new and very comfortable! I would recommend tis company again.
George is a classy, typically Greek driver – a real gentleman who made my ride to the airport (unfortunately) the last very pleasant experience. I highly recommend Best Day Tours Athens and sure will come back to book him on my next trip to Athens which will hopefully be soon. Thank you George and best wishes for the New Year to you,
When we got off our cruise ship, we contracted with George Panagiotou to take us to Athens for the day. George was wonderful! He saved us time and money dropping us off at the main sites at least busy times and efficiently gave us the most time for the price.
The Mercedes van was new and very luxurious! George was not only a former professional footballer, but proved to be a professional driver and guide as well. It was a great experience providing us with great memories of a lifetime!
Thank you George!
Ottimo servizio, cortesia ai massimi livelli e direi anche prezzi fantastici! Veramente consigliato sia per muoversi da e verso l’aeroporto sia per fare lo splendido tour proposto!George the best!!
Your service is truly the “Best.” We would use it again, anywhere and anytime.
Wassilis was informed, friendly and a pleasure to spend time with. What was most impressive was his willingness and enthusiasm to customize your tour to our interests and itinerary and yet sprinkle improvements throughout it.
Dennis was likewise a sheer delight and became almost a member of our family. He viewed our problem with the passport as his problem or as the problem of a close friend. He really helped and was very comforting.
We are back from our travels and wanted to send a quick email on the service provided.
We LOVED our guide, Denise. She provide such a wonderful narrative of the history of Greece she made our day all that we had hoped it would be.
The driver was also a gem and we appreciated his skill in taking us around the city.
I will definitely recommend your company to anyone I know that is traelleing to Athens.
Thank you again for your help in planning our day and making our short stay so memorable.
You’re expensive but very much worth it. We will recommend your service to anyone we know heading off to Athens.
Thank you for making our trip very memorable. Our guide was great and very knowledgable. A wonderful person. If I hear of anyone going to Athens I will be sure to recommend your company.
Thank you for everything once again.
Looking forward to book with Best Travel Tours soon.
Thank you for checking in. Everything was just wonderful! Your guide and driver were both lovely, and the van was very nice!
I would recommend you to anyone who is traveling to Athens!!
