TRANSFERS AND TOURS
DEEP BLUE TOURS
The people behind Deep Blue Tours are Dimitris and Akis, two young men of Greek-Australian descent, who spotted a “gap” in the quality tour services market in Greece, which was their parents’ homeland, and decided to set up a company which would offer reliable, professional private tours and personalised excursions for visitors.
Dimitris, studied at the University of Sydney and has extensive experience in the tours sector, gained by running his very own transfer and tour business in Sydney, which he kept going until he relocated to Greece and set up Deep Blue Tours.
Akis (short for Efthymios), graduated in Economics, Modern Greek and Greek History from La Trobe University, and for a number of years worked in the luxury transfer and tour sector, offering his services to politicians, celebrities and top executives. Putting the role of employee behind him, he co-founded Deep Blue Tours with Dimitris.
The third member of the team is Eleni Karachaliou, Operations Manager at Deep Blue Tours. A graduate of the American College and the University of Athens, she worked for Singapore Airlines for 21 years, gaining valuable experience in passenger/customer relations, which she is now utilising to successfully grow the business.
Deep Blue Tours’ services
Extensive experience in the private tour sector, the advantage afforded by fluent English (since it is the owners’ mother tongue) and a passion for quality services that paint Greece in a glowing light for visitors, are 3 key features of the Deep Blue Tours team. Our fully professional, superior quality services always respect the individual needs of travellers. We offer top class service in Athens and the wider metropolitan area, as well as mainland Greece, whether it's a daily or a longer excursion.
Our drivers speak excellent English, offering information about points of interest, and providing visitors a first acquaintance with the city and its sights. That said, they are not professional tour guides and so do not have permission to accompany clients to historical sites, museums or monasteries.
If you are looking for a tailor-made tour, Deep Blue Tours does collaborate with professional tour guides who can offer well-planned and detailed tours of archaeological sites and attractions at an additional cost to you. If you’re interested in something like that, just let us know as soon as possible so we can check for availability on the date you prefer.
In addition to our tailor-made classic whole- or half-day tours, Deep Blue Tours can also arrange a host of other tours to suit your needs.
Drivers & Tour Guides
It is important to know that even though Deep Blue Tours’ drivers are very knowledgeable about Greece’s history, they cannot replace tour guides, and vice versa. Drivers cannot accompany visitors to sights, but can offer sufficient information about the locations they are about to visit. If you’d like a more detailed tour at any location, official tour guides are available for most sights, though for most they are not necessary. If you’d like a tour guide to accompany you for the whole tour, that can be arranged at an additional cost.
All drivers speak excellent English and Greek. If you’d like us to book a tour guide, please specify what language you would like to have the tour in.
