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.

Our full-day private tour will take you to the most important Athens landmarks and monuments.
Your driver will pick you up from your residence or Athens International Airport in Spata and drive you to your first stop, Lycabettus Hill.
The Athens Lycabettus Hill stands at 277 meters (745 ft) and is the highest hill of Athens. That offers a spectacular panoramic view of Athens all the way to the Saronic sea, the Acropolis Hill, the whole city of Athens and the surrounding mountains.
Our Athens day tour next stop is the UNESCO listed Acropolis Hill to admire up close the famous temples of Parthenon, Propylaea, Erechteion, Athena Nike, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Dionysus Theatre. Acropolis usually needs at least an hour.
Right across the northeast exit of Acropolis, lies Areios Pagos or Mars Hill, and this is the hill where the Apostle Paul preached Christ’s word for the first time in Greece. Read more on our Apostle Paul Footsteps Private Tour here
The next stops are the nearby gigantic temple of Zeus and the Arch of Adrian, the all-marble Panathenaic Stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic games in 1896, the Greek Neoclassic Parliament on historical Syntagma Square and the changing of the guards and the Athens Trilogy with the impressive Doric and Ionic columns.
Right after, you will visit the important Ancient Agora with the fully intact Temple of Hephestus and the impressive Attalos Stoa and the in-house museum.
After Ancient Agora, your driver will take you to the New Acropolis Museum, a world-class museum of vast proportions. The New Acropolis Museum holds the historic archaeological treasures of the Acropolis of Athens and it is a must-see for every visitor of Athens.
If there is enough time, we can take you to visit and shop at the tiny alleys of Plaka old city and the iconic Anafiotika area that takes you back when Athens was just a small village under the Acropolis!
Our Athens private tour takes you to all the Athens essential monuments in the comfort of our luxurious brand-new vehicles and with live commentary of our English-speaking professional drivers!
Beginning the Athens tour you have the chance to admire the magnificent panorama of the city from Lycabettus hill at 745 ft. (277 m). Lycabettus stands high above Athens, commanding a clear view across the Attica basin and the Aegean.
It includes four of the greatest masterpieces of classical Greek art – the Parthenon (Temple , dedicated to the goddess Athena) , the Propylaea (the monumental gateway to the Acropolis), the Erechthio (Temple dedicated to both Athena and Poseidon) and the Temple of Athena Nike (Victorious in Greek).
Upon exit from the sacred hill of Acropolis, you walk up the steep Areios Pagos rock (there are stairs )just as Apostle Paul did and preached Christ’s word for the first time in Greece.
From the top of the rock, you can see the Acropolis and a panoramic view of Athens.
Continuing our Athens Tour you will visit the gigantic Temple of Olympian Zeus and Adrian’s Arch.
The Temple was designed to be the biggest temple in ancient time.
The only stadium in the world built entirely of marble.
The Stadium hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 and today is used as the final point of the Athens Authentic Marathon.
You will see the impressive shift change of the traditionally dressed guards (evzones) in front of the Greek parliament and the Marble Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. From there, you visit the Athens Trilogy, the Academy of Athens, the University and the National Library, wonderful neoclassical buildings.
It was the centre of economic life and served as a bustling marketplace. The most important buildings are Stoa of Attalos, a reconstruction of the ancient building, completed in 1956 by the American School of Classical Studies and the Temple of Hephaestus, commissioned by Pericles and completed in 415 BC.
If there is time left, you will have an hour of free time in the ancient neighbourhood of Athens close to Acropolis, named Plaka.
Plaka is full of people, music, typical restaurants “tavernas”, beautiful houses, cosy cafes and little shops with souvenirs.
You can visit Anafiotika, a small area in Plaka that reminds you of a Cycladic island.
Afterwards, we will drop you off at your residence or at the airport.
