Best Sites in Greece
We sell Experiences and not Brochures.
Thank you for visiting our site Greece Private Tours, a unique and not a copy/paste Web photo site. All text and photos are personal and we do not pay for advertising... Briefly Greece is surrounded by water, but the mainland is full of mountains. Greece has very few valleys... so even if the distances between cities look near in the map it will take a long time to approach. Our website is not just designed to accommodate only clients. We have tried to include as much useful and practical information about Greece as possible to assist you in your planning. We sell experiences and not brochures. Please look through our site and not hesitate to contact us with any questions or comments. We are happy to help all visitors to Greece regardless of whether you use our services or not.
Why Greece Private Tours: Because we visit Greece as travelers, not as tourists, we get as excited as you, we love traveling, guiding and photography. We visit all the sites as travelers and try to avoid the large tourist groups' usual hours. Our website photos are a testament to this... Although we have greatly enjoyed traveling around Greece, checking out places, taking photos and writing our text, as we are sure you can appreciate, it was at great expense and also time consuming. We continue to develop the site updating and adding new information constantly. Therefore we kindly ask any interested party who wishes to copy any part of the site - text or photos - to contact us and make a proposal before doing so. Thank you for your co-operation.
Unfortunately, there are 2 websites ATHENSDAYTOURS.GR and OLIVESEA.GR by the same owner "Vassilis Vlachos", who stole our Slogan and our Photos ( I will not exaggerate if I will say 500 Photos)... If there is someone to advise us in this matter, he is welcome...
