That is what happened to us. However, we were very pleased with the driver he provided. We toured the sites in Athens and then drove to Cape Sounion where we saw the Temple of Poseidon. We stopped along the way for lunch. We had a wonderful day.

We and another couple used Spiros this past summer and he was our guide/driver. He was wonderful, a very caring and considerate person. I recommend him highly. We are planning on being on another cruise this summer that stops in Athens and are going to book him to do a tour to Mycenae and the Pelopenese area if we can find another couple to join us.

We booked Spiros for last October for Cape Sounion and we had George who was a wonderful guide with very good English.

I would thoroughly recommend Spiros, he is very prompt with his emails and George arrived on time and we were in a very clean Mercedes limo.
