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.
Would choose this company again!

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.

The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hosios Loukas Monastery (alongside the monasteries of Daphnion in Athens and Nea Moni in Chios island). Hosios Loukas was actually a military saint who prophesized the re-conquest of Crete.
The Hosios Loukas Monastery is one of the most important monuments of Middle Byzantine art and architecture founded in the 10th AD by monk Loukas.
The Monastery complex, set in a serene imposing natural environment, includes buildings and cells next to the two churches, a large collection of Byzantine sculptures and fantastic frescoes such as the top gold mosaic of the saint.
As soon as you reach the mystical site of Delphi, you will walk through the ‘Sacred Way’ uphill to all the Temples and Sites. Some of the sites that you will walk by are:
The Τemple of Apollo, The Theatre, The Stadium, The sanctuary of Athena Pronaia with the Tholos and the Kastalia.
Afterwards, you will stroll to the beautiful alley, a short distance towards the adjacent Museum with permanent rich collections of findings from the site:
The famous bronze Charioteer, The Sphinx of Naxos, Friezes of the Siphnian Treasuries and The Statue of a philosopher said to be Plutarch or Plato.
There are public facilities if you would like a coffee or tea and plenty of time for your photos before we proceed to our next stop.
