When you arrive at our beautiful newer airport in Athens, or by ship at the port of Piraeus, you want to have a friend greet you, handle your luggage and whisk you off to your hotel. That is my friend, Spiros. Spiros speaks perfect English and Greek. His knowledge of Greek history and culture is amazing. He has a great sense of humor. “He knows the best lunch spots to take us to” says Jeanette from Los Angeles. “He has lived in the US for more than 30 years and has worked as a taxi and limousine driver in New York City where he learned what Americans like- friendly and efficient service.” “I personally (the author-Roberta) have known Spiros for 14 years and honored to say that he is my friend. In fact, if it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have a vacation home in Greece. He handled everything for me from start to finish.”

Spiros is also available for tours and transfers all over Greece. Ride in his brand new E-class Mercedes Benz. “Did you know that the fee was very reasonable, much cheaper than the cruise ship tours? There were only the three of us: my husband, his sister and myself, not the whole bus loads that we saw there from the ships,” as quoted by a fellow Angelino. Here is another quote, “My mother and I booked Spiros through his website after reading the highly complementary reviews on Trip Advisor. Great decision! Spiros responded promptly and professionally. We booked the ten hour tour of the Peloponnese peninsula. Spiros is highly knowledgeable and very thoughtful. He showed tremendous consideration to my mother who was not able to make the steep climb to some of the sights. We were comfortable in his impeccably maintained Mercedes Benz. Our lunch in Nafplio was superb. Make sure you order the red mullet! When we return to Greece we will ask Spiro to plan our trip to Delphi and area with overnight accommodation. Thank you, Spiro for making our final day in the Mediterranean so memorable!”

And another resident of Los Angeles quoted, “ My wife and I wanted to visit Meteora and Delphi as part of a short visit to Athens. In the past we have rented cars, but this time, for the first time, we decided to try renting a taxi. Spiros Taxi Service turned out to be an excellent choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief two day drive with Spiros. It was pleasantly relaxing to just look at the scenery and leave it to his experience to negotiate the traffic, light he said, and find the various destinations, plus parking (never a simple matter). The restaurants he selected, plus the place we stayed at overnight, were all excellent choices. This was certainly a very good way to enjoy a bit of Greece.”

Some of the tours offered are: The Athens Tour, The Peloponnese Tour, The Delphi Tour and many more. Spiro is also available for 2, 3 or 5 day tours. You can even customize your own tour. Visit his website for more details. I hope that you also tour my second homeland!
