It was an amazing tour from start to finish. We made a last-minute online reservation late in the afternoon for the next morning. The confirmation came promptly!
We enjoy exploring museums and archaeological sites in every city we travel to. This was truly a pleasant surprise—the organization was impeccable, the guide and tour leader were punctual, picking us up from the hotel and accompanying us throughout the entire tour, sharing extensive knowledge of ancient Greek history. We found the cost reasonable for a 6-hour private tour and highly recommend it to anyone seeking an upgraded service.
Our private tour of the Acropolis and the National Archaeological Museum was an well-done organized tour. The licensed tour guide Mrs Katerina who accompanied us was not only incredibly knowledgeable but also passionate about bringing the history and culture of Greece to life. I recommend this tour to those interested in museums and archaeological sites, and definitely, make sure to have a guide with you!
Must do, must see, must experience :-)

Our archeological tour of mainland Greece was amazing. Our private tour guide & driver George made it even more enjoyable. He’d tailor our stops to avoid large groups and suggest times to minimise the heat. His knowledge of the sites was vast. We even bumped into 3 other tour guides all named George, believe it or not. Must be a company policy to hire guides & drivers named George - ha ha ha. Our George navigated the best roads too as Greece had a biblical flood just few days earlier and some of the roads were still closed. We just felt at home on this trip and accommodation was great as well. We all gave it 5 stars out of 5 !!!
Glorious Greece in Depth

I can think of no better way to see and experience this wonderful country in such depth - the layers of history, the outstanding natural beauty, the delicious food. It was a comprehensive and well-thought-out itinerary, the accommodation was comfortable, and we were well looked after by our driver. We will have fond memories of this trip for a long time.
Amazing organised trip of Greece

9 Day Group Tour in Ancient Greece & Zakynthos with Cruise to Shipwreck!
3* star hotel accommodation
We traveled as a family of four adults, 2 of them who are senior citizens.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour organised by Private Tours Greece. The weather in September end was lovely and the tour itinerary was just right. We were also very happy with the accommodation and transportation provided.
Each leg of the tour was organised by different companies, but there was never a point where there was any hitches. The tour guides who came with us also kept things moving along smoothly.
There were many highlights, but Zakynthos was mine. It’s nothing quite like swimming in these waters. The food from the restaurants the tour company provided for was also very nice!
I would really recommend this tour as everything was included. Reaching out to them via WhatsApp is also seamless.
Can’t wait to go back once again to this beautiful country.
A delightful journey through beautiful Greece
This trip was a complete delight. The itinerary was perfect with everything suberbly organized. Our driver was excellent and completely committed to our care. The local subject matter experts who joined us at each of the cultural sites were both enjoyable and informative. They each provided a detailed historical context that helped give us a better understanding of both classical Greek culture and current events. The hotels selected for our trip were excellent - clean, friendly staff, great breakfasts. I highly recommend this team for Greece adventure.
Probably my favorite excursion ever
The Cape Sounio Tour with Wine Tasting offered by Private Tours Greece exceeded all expectations. As seasoned cruisers who often opt for independent excursions, this experience stood out as the best we've ever had. Before the tour, we encountered some communication challenges, struggling to reach Private Tours Greece despite having paid in full. However, once we connected, we were in for an exceptional adventure, led by the remarkable George.
The journey began when George met us at the cruise port, and we embarked on a scenic drive to Cape Sounio, reminiscent of the Amalfi Coast with its crystal-clear waters and stunning landscapes. Being a private tour and starting early in the morning, we enjoyed the temple of Poseidon in near solitude, evading the crowds of cruise tourists. George provided us with ample time to explore the temple, and the experience was truly magnificent. The drive back to Athens was equally enjoyable as George shared insights about the city's landmarks. Our adventure continued at Nikolou, a family winery near Athens. Thanks to George's arrangements, we had a private tour and tasting, even joined by the owner and treated to a delightful charcuterie board. The Papagiannakos winery also offered an exceptional tour and tasting, elevating our wine appreciation.
Remarkably, the tour didn't end here. George learned it was our anniversary and arranged a waterfront dinner at an upscale Athens restaurant. He waited for us as we dined, then surprised us with a delicious cake from a local bakery on the way back to the ship.George's exceptional service and the tour's quality left us feeling like VIPs. We can't recommend this tour and Private Tours Greece enough, and if you have the chance, don't hesitate to request George as your guide.
Pretty Patmos historical tour!
we went at a time that was very quiet so we basically had sites to ourselves. Our Guide was nice and easy to understand. Air conditioned Private transport waits for you at every site which is nice. Paying over $700 and entrance fees are not included ?? That, I was pretty upset about. Also I was contacted just two days before the tour about a time conflict and site closures during our scheduled tour time. It was supposed to be a 4 hour tour and it was not quite 4 hours because we weren’t able to see all the sites we had booked for. However still paid full price PLUS entrance fees.
