He had very good communication skills and was very welcoming and knowledgeable. He knew all that is to know about history and mythology, plus a lot more.

Valerios picked us up promptly in the morning from our rental house. The car was cool and comfortable and he provided expert information regarding every stop.

We booked Premier Transfers to pick us up from Athens airport and bring us to Piraeus and to collect us on the return journey last month. Our ferry was very... read more delayed on the return trip and we thought that we would miss our flight home but Valerios was there waiting for us at the port and had already been in touch with the airline to ensure that they knew that we were en route. Amazingly he got us to the airport and helped us to check our bags in so that we made the flight with minutes to spare. He operates an excellent service that I would not hesitate to recommend - he is also a very charming man. Thanks Valerios!
Seven of us cruised to the Greek Isles last week. We had a port tour with Athens Premier Transfers & Tours. It was as perfect as one could experience. Our... read more driver, Notis, was courteous, full of information, fun, professional and gave us the experience we were hopeful in having while in Athens. We saw SO much, ate at a local, family owned restaurant that was off the touristy areas. It was GREAT! We will look forward to using this company whenever we are in Athens. I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting Athens. I feel like we got the best for the best price. You won't go wrong when you book with Athens Premier Transfers & Tours.

About an hour from Athens is our first Peloponnese stop, Corinth Canal.
Corinth Canal, an impressive sea passage, was drilled and has been operating since 1893.
It is a narrow sea strip, lengthed about 6 kilometres that connects mainland Greece to Peloponnese.
If we are lucky, we will see a ship crossing the narrow canal and take many photos of the stunning view. We will have time to grab a coffee or tea from the surrounding shops.
No entrance fees required.
Next, your driver will take you to the Stalactites of Kapsia Caves.
The amazing Caves constitute a complex system of swallow-holes on the lush Mantineia mountain range.
Multicoloured stalagmites and stalactites compose a unique and impressive canvas that is reflected on the surface of the small ponds inside the cave.
Dress warmly for your visit to the Kapsia caves.
Ancient Messene (or Messini, Greek Μεσσήνη) is a significant ancient city in terms of its size, form, and astonishing state of preservation.
According to UNESCO about Ancient Messene: “The archaeological site and monuments of Ancient Messene constitute an exceptional testimony to the urban environment and living conditions of an ancient Greek city, preserving all those elements that make up the ancient Greek way of life in an ancient Greek city (secular, religious, political/administrative, residential, funerary).”
The area of Ancient Messene contains the ruins of the large classical city-state founded in 369 BC by Thbian General Epaminondas who died in the neighbouring Mantineia area. After the Battle of Leuctra in 371 BC, which resulted in Spartan defeat, it became the capital of the free Messenian state.
Today the visitor of this extraordinarily well-preserved ancient city will admire up close sanctuaries, public buildings, imposing fortifications, houses and tombs:
After Ancient Messene your driver will take you to the modern town of Olympia to stay overnight. You can spend your evening strolling in the village and your driver can suggest according to your tastes an appropriate restaurant or a traditional tavern.
After your rich breakfast at the hotel, we will visit the UNESCO site of Ancient Olympia.
Ancient Olympia lies in the fertile valley of the Alpheios river and it was the most celebrated site of Ancient Greece. You will visit both the museum and the famous archaeological site of the ancient Olympic Games.
As you stroll by the ancient paths you will see the Doric Temples of Zeus and Hera, the Bouleuterion, the Prytaneion, the Stadium, the Gymnasium, the Palestra, the Workshop of Pheidias and so many others.
At the museum, you will admire, among other masterpieces, the Nike of Paionios and the breathtaking Hermes and the Infant Dionysus statue.
After Ancient Olympia, we head northwest to another engineering miracle, the Rio Antirio Bridge.
The Bridge connects Peloponnese with midland Greece and it is a very impressive modern construction.
The next stop is the oldest (1861) Greek winery, the Achaia Clauss Winery for wine tasting and interesting facts on Greek wine varieties and methods.
The winery is at Patras, the third-largest city of Greece, built amphitheatrically by the sea.
Finally, we arrive back in Athens and we drop you at the airport or your residence.
