An outstanding tour from start to finish. Our guide, Dominic, offered us the flexibility to adjust all aspects of the tour in a way that was most preferable to us, from the length of time we were able to spend at each location, to the amount and depth of information he provided us. All of the important areas were covered at a comfortable pace (Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Changing of the Guard, Temple of Poseidon, among others), and we were allowed to explore on our own and simply contact Dominic when we were ready to be picked up. He took our personal preferences into account in making a restaurant recommendation partway through the day, which was truly one of the best meals of our entire vacation. The personal vehicle in which we rode couldn’t be more comfortable, and the personalized nature of the private trip made each stop much more enjoyable and immersive. Thank you, Dominic!

Great visit and our guide was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to show us more of the sites. We have already recommended him to other people we met in the resort.

Dominic was absolutely amazing. Great with all three generations, especially with the kids. Wonderful sense of humour and great knowledge of Greek history, names, dates, and culture. Thank you so much for an amazing experience.
