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.
