We were beyond satisfied with our experience today. Pascal lived up to our every expectation in both customer service and the description of the tour. We visited numerous breathtaking spots at places I would have never imagined were this beautiful. He not only made sure the pictures were beautiful but shared key information about the sites we visited, making our experience a truly amazing one. He was happy to take the pictures and ensured we had as much time as we needed to take in the stunning views. He was friendly, polite, knowledgeable and attentive. We look forward to booking our next experience with him. Pascal, thank you for the amazing experience and for your love and dedication to what you do. Adriana

I had a wonderful experience using the Electric Tuk Tuk to see and explore the back streets and historic sites of Athens. Akis, our guide, picked us up directly from the hotel and paid attention to the smallest of details. He provided blankets to keep us warm and ensured that we experienced the best local cuisine like Gelato and Souvlaki. He gracouisly stopped to allow us to take as many photos as we liked. I would highly recommend all who visit Athens to use the Electric Tuk Tuk.

We really enjoyed this tour with Takis, he was a great host. But just to explain the concept of tour for other travellers-your guide does not visit the attractions with you, he drives you to them and explains the history in front of the place of interest, then you buy tickets and enter by yourself while he is waiting for you. Never the less, we really enjoyed our tour, which is quite convenient if it is more convenient for you to walk less due any reason.

The tour was absolutely amazing. Stelios, our tour guide, was absolutely fantastic. He was very knowledgable and patient. Took us to great locations for pictures to post on social media. I would highly recommend taking with your with Stelios.

Chris was a great guide, and the tuk tuk was extremely maneuverable around the city.
