Excellent tour of all of Greece
Visiting Europe I usually just rent a car and have some general idea about the things I want to see. Being unfamiliar with Greece, the language, and the alphabet, I though it prudent to engage a tour company. I wasn't wrong. Our dedicated car and driver sped us all around Greece for fourteen days. We changed the itinerary on the fifteenth and sixteenth days to add an excursion to Santorini. The tour company handled the change (hotel, flights, drivers) flawlessly. For a price, we also arranged for guides at the major sites. Again the tour company got great guides. We saw more of Greece and learned more than we could have on our own. I recommend Private Tours of Greece.
Truly tailor-made Greece
We had given Private Tours a briefing, which included our suggested itinerary and preference for historic and traditional sightseeing. They came back with a 2-week trip, starting in Thessaloniki and ending in Athens. We were a party of 4, so for this trip they provided us a Mercedes Van Viano, which had plenty of space for all our luggage and was most comfortable. Most importantly, the man in charge of this vehicle (I don't like to call him "our driver" because he was much more than that), George, bent over backwards to give us the best possible experience of his motherland. He was competent, interesting and entertaining, all while bending the program to suit our preference and timing. Private Tours organized local guides at every important stop and George complimented this service with his own knowledge and (strong) opinions. We travel to have a good time, but we also want to learn as much as we can from the local history, culture and traditions - we got all that and more from this exquisite trip.
I would have no hesitation recommending Private Tours to anybody who wants to explore Greece in a little more depth than the average tourist
