You are AMAZING Debbie! You planned the absolute perfect anniversary vacation for us!!! I hope you can enjoy some down time for yourself! And love the pictures! Takes me strait back to Greece!
This company is so professional. I have used them many times and have never been let down.
They transferred all my wedding guests from the airport to the port and back again in comfort and style, they helped me out last minute with zero stress when I mixed up my bookings, they do airport transfers for my family when they visit, I have used them to bring me to doctors appointments when I couldn’t afford to be late or stressed out and they have done it all with a smile.They are prompt and courteous and always check in afterwards to make sure we have been happy with the service. five stars for sure!!!
Since the very first moment, they gave me & my friend a feeling of comfort. Gentle, clean and nice drivers, willing to show us around and help with any question we had regarding places and Greek situation/culture.
I have been staying in Athens to study abroad since January and used this company for airport transfers. Each of the drivers are kind and very knowledgable if you ask a question. They have never been late to pick me up which is a huge plus! I love this company and highly recommend it.
Very friendly and personable tour guide. Gave great information and made the experience worth the drive! I highly recommend using this company for tours around Athens!
OPA is wonderful, and makes every effort to welcome us each time. From clean, quality vehicles to offering water, wifi and a phone charge–you are in safe hands. The best of all? -how genuinely friendly they are. Thank you, Opa. You made me feel like I was coming home, last night.
Recommended to us by a colleague of my husband, they were totally fabulous! Loved the tour package they put together for us with our #1 request of the bungee jump at the Corinth canal! Tops!!!
