Minivan Tours

For those of you who would prefer a rather free scheduled tour and who are not interested that much in seeing the Acropolis or the museums with a licensed tour guide, but would prefer to explore on their own the many attractions of the area, this is the best way to plan your private tour in Athens and its suburbs.

In organizing a private tour, transportation plays a very important role to assure a safe and comfortable trip. For families and friends that travel together we offer a luxury type, latest technology(euro 5), fully air-conditioned, no older than 3 years old 9 seats minivan driven by a professional experienced non-smoking English speaking driver. For larger parties we can arrange a VIP luxury type Mercedes minibus that accommodates up to 18 passengers. Your driver and private vehicle will pick you up from your hotel in Athens or the airport.

Book your private minivan or minibus and driver and explore Athens and the surrounding area on your own.

There are many things that will diversify your tour and augment your experience of the area. For example:

  • enjoy a city tour of Athens with your private vehicle, with several stops along the way for pictures
  • visit at one of the sandy Aegean Sea beaches for swimming and relaxing by the seaside
  • visit the southeast parts of Attica, driving all the way to Cape Sounion and Lavrion
  • ask us to organize for you a private cooking class and take back with you the knowledge of traditional Greek cuisine recipes
  • visit one of the area's monasteries and admire the unique iconography and architecture
  • visit one of the many wineries located in Mesogeia, villages located east of Athens, and enjoy a wine tasting experience

    In April 2016, I went with my family to Olympia, Greece to see the lighting of the Olympic Torch ceremony.
    For this trip I contacted Niki Vlachou of Olympia Tours. Niki arranged a very comfortable Taxi (for transportation) from Athens International Airport to Hotel, in Athens downtown, and round trip from Athens to Olympia and back with Christos who spoke fluent English.
    Christos is a very polite gentleman and very knowledgeable in Greek History. During our journey Christos explained some important features of the land and its history. Instead of taking us directly to the hotel (as most taxi drives do), he drove around the city of Athens, showing the important Monuments of the city and explaining their history.
    While travelling from Athens to Olympia, Christos showed some ancient sites and explained the significance of each site with lot of patience. Though it was about 4 hours drive we enjoyed every minute of the journey. We were very pleased with his nature and enjoyed his company.
    Mrs. Niki Vlachou was our guide in the town Olympia, for "The Archaeological Museum of Olympia and The Archaeological Site”. Mrs. Niki Vlachou explained in detail about the history of the museum and about the artifacts displayed in the museum.
    While walking through the Archaeological Site, Niki explained in detail about the salient features of the site, like Temple of Hera, Palaestra, Temple of Zeus, Crypte (Official entrance to the stadium), Ancient Stadium and Pheidias Workshop. She told us about the history of the Olympic Flame. She answered to all the questions I asked with lot patience. We learned from her about Greece which we were unaware of.
    Mrs. Niki Vlachou arranged a guide in Athens, Maria for the tour of ancient Agora. She was excellent and her knowledge about the ancient site was remarkable.
    Last but not the least I would like to say that our trip to Athens and Olympia, Greece was 100% successful.
    For the people who would like to visit Greece for vacation, I strongly recommend "OLYMPIA TOURS".

Client Testimonials

Niki's knowledge of the history there as well as how she related it to all of us was a perfect balance!
Julie
Niki knows her stuff, and she comes across as an intelligent and credible source of verified information. My wife and I used her as our group tour guide in Olympia and then again in Athens, and we were very pleased.
Tony
I definitely recommend other cruisers to book independently through Niki Vlachou.
