This 1/2 day tour was amazing. We were promptly picked up at hour hotel by our tour guide from Siva Private Tours, Ioanna, and and our driver, Mike. The narration on the driving trip was just enough to make the one hour journey seem very short. We had ample time at the Temple and Ioanna walked us through the entire site and allowed some time to wander on our own. After a coffee at the cafe, we headed back to downtown Athens and our hotel, making an unplanned stop at a beautiful lake on the outskirts of Athens. We sere very pleased with Siva Tours

We used KEY Tours 3 times plus had them arrange airport pick up as we were coming in ahead of our cruise package. Alexis was very helpful in helping us plan our trip to Athens as it was our first visit. The first tour was for just my husband and myself to Corinth, Mycenae, and Nafplio. Our driver/guide was great! There were no time constraints and we saw and learned so much--including a stop at a local winery in Nemea to try some Greek wines! In fact we got back much later than the tour stated! When our friends joined us, our group of six had an Athens city tour with Marianna as our guide. By leaving early we were able to see most sites before the crowds arrived. She was extremely knowledgeable. One of our members had mobility issues and she was able to minimize walking for him. Before meeting our ship we went out to the Sounio Peninsula. Again a fabulous day. It was the first time any of us had booked private tours and we are sold! I don't think you will be disappointed in any of the tours that KEY TOURS provides.
