It’s a family affair
Greetings! My name is George Kokkotos and this is my story.
I immigrated to Australia on the early 70’s at a very young age where I met my beloved (Greek) wife. There I worked as a mechanic – tool maker and after a couple of years we decided with my wife to move to the USA, commonly known as the land of opportunity back then. Indeed we, along with my brother in-law, managed to buy a small restaurant and make it a successful business. As years were passing by and my kids were growing up, our heart was still in our home country hence by the late 80‘s the family returned back to Greece for good.
This was the time when I bought a taxi license. Though difficult in the beginning to adjust in the Greek way of driving and life in general, I then realized that I could become more than just an ordinary cab driver. I began studying about my country’s history and by being able to speak English fluently, I offered my services to travel agencies and random tourists from the airport and cruise ships. In a short time my name was getting bigger by word of mouth and people from all over the world were asking for my services either via phone calls or by fax messages. Before I realize it I have become “George the famous taxi driver”!
As years were passing by and my popularity was rapidly increasing, I started focusing on expanding the business by recruiting and training some fellow taxi drivers. This was it. George’s Taxi company was ready to assist people take hassle-free transfers from airport/port to Athens and exciting excursions throughout Athens and the mainland. Last but not least, I am proud to say that my three sons after completing their studies decided to join the business and help continue the legacy…I look forward to seeing you in Athens!

Athens is a fascinating and one-of-a-kind city: a dynamic megalopolis with its terrific speed of life, at the same time bearing traces of the grand Greek history.
