It’s hard to overstate the influence of Athens. Often called the birthplace of democracy and the cradle of Western civilisation, this ancient city is a treasure trove of culture, art, and history. And yet, though visiting Athens can feel like a trip back in time, the city is very much a modern metropolis. There’s much to discover here, both old new. If this Grecian capital city is on your agenda, Athens airport transfers can help get you started off on the right foot. Check out our booking options to get started!
So many things can be uncertain when you’re travelling. Will the weather delay your flight? How will you find your hotel? Will you have enough of the local language to get by?

Plus, our drivers are fully insured, certified professionals who are experts at knowing their way around. There’s no waiting in the taxi rank or struggling to figure out local public transit schedules – just make your booking and we’ll ensure you get to where you’re you want to go!
If you’ve ever seen even a picture of Athens, you’ll recognise the ancient Acropolis that overlooks the city on a high rocky outcrop. Visible from almost everywhere in Athens, the Acropolis is an ancient citadel that contains the remains of several ancient buildings. Most famous of these buildings is the Parthenon, the massive marble temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. Completed in 438 BC, the Parthenon is regarded not only as the most important surviving building of Classical Greece and the pinnacle of Greek art, but also as a symbol of democracy and civilisation.
How much notice will you need for us to book? We always recommend you book your Athens airport transfers at the same time as you book your flights. That being said, most destinations served by Shuttle Direct will accept bookings up to 24 hours prior to arrival. Some suppliers will accept even less notice. To ensure you get the best transfer, earlier bookings are always better!
Amazing driver. Very friendly knew the area well gave a great overview of the city
Easy booking. My flight was delayed and the driver was right there when we came out of airport
I am so glad we booked this shuttle service. The driver was waiting for us and got us to the port in great time. I thought about taking the train to the port, but I noticed that none of the trains were running today (Sunday) since the road we took followed the tracks.
No problems.... always a plus 4 in my book.
Used this service from Athens airport to Athens cruise port. Driver - John was excellent, on time, friendly and the van was very clean. Would recommend this service and would use it again
John was friendly, on time, van was clean
The driver was waiting for us, he took our bags and he had good knowledge of the roads in Athens dropped us 50 meters from our hotel as there was no vehicle access.
Easy on line booking with confirmation email really quick
We had excelled service! Our driver was right there in Athens airport with the sign up and a friendly smile. We were even lucky enough to get Chris, when we set up a shuttle from our hotel to the Pier, again!
Chris, our driver was prompt and very nice!
