Other Classic City Tours Services: 

Shuttle Services
Professional shuttle service is $65 per hour.  One 19-passenger shuttle bus is available. If a shuttle rental includes multiple components (ie: the group requires the use of the bus for a drop-off, and then again later for a pick-up), there must be at least 3 hours between shuttle services to be counted separately. This means that the customer will be charged for "down time" unless it exceeds 3 hours. In order to secure the use of the bus, a non-refundable $25 deposit and signed Shuttle Confirmation Agreement are required.
Call for availability.

Step-On Tour Guides
If a group with its own bus comes to Athens and would like a tour, a Classic City Tours guide can "step on" the bus and give a Tour of Historic Athens.
Cost: $50.00 per hour.  Advance reservations required. 

Specialty Tours and Corporate Tours
Classic City Tours can create tours for special events and conferences. Some of the specialty tours available include gardens, a walking tour of downtown, African-American Heritage, music heritage, and museums.
