We enjoyed this most informative and relaxed half day trip, I'd recommend to friends.
This is a great 1/2 day excursion. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable.
This 1/2 day tour was amazing. We were promptly picked up at hour hotel by our tour guide from Siva Private Tours, Ioanna, and and our driver, Mike. The narration on the driving trip was just enough to make the one hour journey seem very short. We had ample time at the Temple and Ioanna walked us through the entire site and allowed some time to wander on our own. After a coffee at the cafe, we headed back to downtown Athens and our hotel, making an unplanned stop at a beautiful lake on the outskirts of Athens. We sere very pleased with Siva Tours
A must when in Athens. The tour gave my wife and myself a real sense of the importance of the Acropolis ruins. Our guide was very knowledgable and gave us a sense of why it came to be. The second part of our tour to the temple of Poseidon gave us an opportunity to see the Greek coastline. The the temple is spectacular. The commanding view was worth seeing by itself.
A really fun tour with a great tour company. If you have time, you should definitely make the trip.
I enjoyed the time spent at the Temple but was disappointed that it was just a drive past the beaches. It would have been better if we stopped at a cafe on the beach. A glass of wine while enjoying the Aegean or even a stroll down the beach would have been perfect.
4hours on the way and only 1 hour stay.... I would have had the trip on my own.
Our tour guide for the acropolis walking tour was outstanding and the tour felt very personalized to us. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun.
The tour to Cap Souion and the Temple of Poseidon was amazing. The drive was beautiful and we loved the ruins. There were only a handful of tourists there and it was nice to get to see this place without the throngs of people at places like the acropolis.
Athens tour with Joy was wonderful, she was very knowledgeable and thorough. Cape Sounion was a long drive for not much to see/learn about to be honest. The bus was really nice and comfortable, but I don't know that t is worth making a 90 minute drive even though the drive was nice for good coastal views.
Our driver's duty was simply to drive us there and back, this was basically a private taxi however I think the rate was a little better than a taxi simply because it was booked and paid for in advance. Our driver was very pleasant and we had a good conversation on the ride over and back. The temple itself, even if you get there another way, is definitely worth the trip. Very much intact with beautiful views from the temple over the water and surrounding area, this was maybe the most beautiful of all the temples and ruins we saw because of how well preserved the structure was with the backgrounds. It was also nice that we were there in April, when it is their Spring so the grass was green and new and there were lots of wildflowers.
The tour guide left half the group at Cape Sunion and went in while everyone else waited for her to bring their tickets at the restaurant. Finally we just walked in without tickets. Very strange.
If you are simply looking for a ride to the site and back this tour will work well for you. Not overly impressed with the guide or the information at the site. Love the ruins and the views cant be beat but not what I was expecting for a tour.
This tour was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and even entertained some of my historical questions after! The views, well they and #39;re spectacular!
Wonderful site, great guide, easily one of our favorite excursions while in Athens. It was the absolute perfect amount of time, not too long and not too short.
A good tour.

the tour guide was great. The vehicle we traveled in had no shock absorbers and was aweful.
Despite having 2 half days the amount of information and sites toured was amazing. I would recommend particularly if you have limited time.
I loved the trip to Temple of Poseidon. The view from there is as amazing as I have ever seen in my life. The guide was great. She gave all the information about the temple and how it came to be where it is.
I wish the trip was long enough for moon to come up specially as it was full moon day and sky was clear which would have made the scene much more beautiful. But then you can't get everything in life and what I got to see was already worth the trip to Cape Sounion.
The drive towards the Temple and back is simply awesome. Advice - if possible take the right seats on your way to and the left - on your way back to better enjoy the magnificent scenery. Guide was knowledge and friendly. The Temple itself is also a nice site and the view from it is breath-taking.
Great tour in small bus - around 60 klms. great scenery and lovely visit to Temple of Posedon. Really enjoyed the trip
The scenery en-route to the Temple was spectacular as was the Temple but we found there was not enough time.
DISAPPOINTED. THE GUIDE WAS HARD TO FOLLOW. SHE WAS ALWAYS SOMEWHERE WHERE WE WEREN'T. COULD NOT FIND HER OR HEAR HER MOST OF THE TIME. MY WIFE DID CATCH HER AT ONE POINT AND GOT HER TO TAKE OUR PICTURE. THE SITE ITSELF IS REALLY WORTHWHILE SEEING.
