: Excellent service by our driver Tazos He picked us up 7:00 am so that we could make it to the Acropolis before the crowds. He knew exactly were to go, explaining in detail the history of his country and every place. He took us to every must of Athens and gave us time to walk on our own while he waited for us , very close in the van. He was kind and friendly with the kids (16,14 and 6 years old) At lunch he took us to an authentic greek restaurant with delicious food and excellent orices. We could customize the tour according to our interests and own pace. We had a wonderful day.
