On my previous trips, I used to explore the cities on my own during the layovers. But I couldn't really manage to enjoy the city as I knew nothing about the local transport system - and simply wasted my time. With Kiwitaxi, I got the chance to admire the whole Athens in just a few hours. My sightseeing ride turned into a fantastic journey!
It's nice to know that the driver is already waiting for you at the airport. He met us with a nameplate and helped with numerous suitcases.
We made several stops on Athens Riviera to take cool pictures. The driver shared fascinating stories about the city and recommended local cafes with authentic Mediterranean cuisine.
