Escape to a green, nearby destination in Attica, far from the main touristic attractions of Athens, which has nothing to envy from the rest of Greece. Your off-road experience starts from your hotel or from a central location where our 4x4 off-road specialized vehicles will pick you up. The route we have designed specifically for you begins approximately 20 kilometres from the centre of Athens. The trip takes place in the wider area of Marathon Lake through dense vegetation, the vineyards, olive trees and small rivers and of course the Dam. At the end of the route, we are going to visit the Wine Museum Kostas Lazaridis and Oinotria land. A tour guide will tell us about the stages of wine production of spirits and balsamic vinegar. We will also tour the wine ageing wine cellars and we will see the barrels that the red wine "OINOTRIA LAND" and the special cellars with the aged wines in the collecting bottles. And for the end, a tasting experience, tasting on 2 wines and one vinegar

My guide Vasile met me at the Acropolis metro stop, we headed to the Acropolis, and I was the only person that had signed up for a tour that day so it was a solo tour. We stopped at the Acropolis, Temple of Hephaestus, Greek Agora, Lycabettus Hill, the glass running man, and the Olympic Stadium in my half day tour. 100% worth it, got some great photos and better memories, and would happily suggest them again.

I am very late with my review as my trip was in September 2019, but it was so amazing I didn't want to miss sharing it with all of you. We were on a cruise and Athens was a port of call. We hired Dennis for 7 plus hours and together we designed a fantastic itinerary. He showed me where to go to purchase tickets ahead of time and all things were a go from the moment we got off the ship. We saw everything! Dennis was helpful, polite, flexible and we were so lucky to get him to show us around the great sights of Athens. Athens is a HUGE city. If you are not in town long please take my advice and hire Tours of Athens for a PRIVATE air conditioned tour. We had plenty of time in each place and it was very very hot so having a vehicle just waiting for us was a no brainer. We had 6 people total and I believe we each around 80 euros for the entire day. Well worth it. Time is money! Thank you Dennis and I am so sorry for the late review.

We have a short layover in Athens. Lefteris brought us to Temple of Artemis and Archaeological Museum of Vravrona, and then back to the airport. The museum is small but delicate. The heritage is only several columns left, but the surroundings is beautiful. There are not many visitors there. Thanks for Chara’s suggestion and organization. She give us manny good ideas and discussed with us patiently in advance. If you have hours of layover in Athens, you could choose the short tour like this. 在雅典機場短暫停留期間,我們選擇Be my Guest Transfers and Tours的當地導覽。事前經由電子信箱討論可行及值得參觀的點,由他們安排接送機和導覽,服務很好,再行前和旅程中,Chara都反覆和我們確認相關細節,服務佳。
