Airport Transfers

Elite Tours will take you to and from the Athens International Airport (Eleftherios Venizelos).

If your flight is landing in Eleftherios Venizelos and it's your first time in Athens, you will feel at ease knowing that a friend will be waiting for you at the airport even if your flight is delayed. We wait for you by the arrivals area holding a sign with your name on it. Once you clear customs we take you to your destination.

Also if you need to catch a ship in one of the three main ports we can take you to Piraeus, Lavrion or Rafina. If you have time, include a full day tour or half-day tour of Athens.

If you are on a business trip and need a taxi for the day to drive you to different places and wait for you, we will make sure your driver is at your beck and call no matter the length of your meetings.

If you have extra time before your flight, consider doing a half day tour of Athens. We can pick you up from your hotel, take you on a spectacular tour, and then drop you off at the airport where you can catch your flight.

Airport Connections

Elite Tours will take to you and from the airport. But, if you have time to spare we can also do a private tour of Athens or Sounion and then drop you off at the airport.

Depending your your schedule, you can take a full day tour or fit in a half day on a tight schedule. The tour schedule is flexible and can be adjusted to your needs. You tell us how much time you have and we will tailor a tour according to your preference. We can also drive you and your luggage to your hotel in the city of Athens. Whether you choose just transportation or elect to take one of our informative private tours, you will have a friendly driver waiting for you at the port and you will have a wonderful day.

If you fly directly to Athens to start your cruise, we can take your stress away by picking you up at the airport and safely driving you to Piraeus where you can board your cruise ship on time. If you have time before your ship leaves we can do a private tour of Athens.

If you chose one of our tours you will have a friendly driver waiting for you at the port and you will have a wonderful day.

Port Transfers

Elite Tours provides private transportation to and from the following ports: Piraeus, Lavrion, Rafina and Agios Konstantinos.

Arriving from a Greek island at Piraeus port and have a late flight departure? We will pick you up from the port, tour the best sites in Athens, and drop you off at the airport. When you disembark from your ship, we will be waiting for you holding a sign with your name on it.

To visit to go to one of the scenic Sporades islands (Skiathos, Skopelos, or Alonissos), you need to catch the ferry from Agios Konstantinos. We will drive you from the Athens airport, your hotel, or any of the ports.

Our friend Jeff Maziarek has up-to-date insider information on Alonissos. If you are planning a visit to Alonissos, you will find his website full of tips.

Port of Piraeus

Greek shipbuilding is renowned throughout the world and the port of Piraeus is the largest port of Greece and one of the largest in the Mediterranean Sea and Europe. Many shipping companies are headquartered at the port.

Piraeus is also known for its historical sites:

  • The municipal theater of Piraeus
  • The Piraeus Lion
  • The tomb of general Themistocles

The large new port is named after the aforementioned ancient Greek general to honor his victorious naval battle against the Persians near the island of Salamina in 479 BC. Along the adjacent Piraiki coastline is a wall that has a length of 2.5 kilometers (the original wall was 13 kilometers which was created by Konon in 394BC.) The wall had 52 towers of which only 22 survive today.
