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.

Meteora monasteries date from the 14th century and are unique in the world because of the amazing treasure of Byzantine and Christian items you can witness. Items such as the classic attire of the monks, elegant paintings and etched glass.
In 1981 Jame’s Bond film ‘For Your Eyes Only’ was partially filmed in the Monastery of Holy Trinity.
