My three teens and I used the service to go to Sounion on our first day in Greece. I was happy to see a nice big Mercedes van. The driver, Panos, was on-time, polite and a great driver! We enjoyed our time at the temple of Poseidon without huge bus crowds just as I had hoped. Panos provided us with cold water and played good music, but not too loud. I wish we could have taken more trips with him!
The tour was great, we were lucky to have Tom as our driver. Besides driving very carefully, he's also very nice and polite. He speaks English very well and we had a great time during the trip. The van was new and clean, we were picked up punctually and arrived at Cape Sounio as expected.
I preferred private service than group travel, and it was worth it. We are not mistaken. Comfortable car and good service. I recommend it. The visit ... spectacular sunset.
the driver was amazing! and very helpful! will use him again next time
Arrived promptly lovely drive out, driver gave us info.
