You have to go and see the Temple of Poseidon! It is unbelievable! The Temple, the story/history is awesome. The ride to Cape Sounion is very nice. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, giving us most of the information on the ride up so that when you got there you had plenty of time to take it all in and shoot pictures. The only thing I was bummed about was not getting to see the sunset. This tour was great!
Brilliant trip superb guide very knowledgeable highly recommended
excellent trip and guide.
This was a beautiful trip. Maybe we could have had a bit longer at the archaeological site but otherwise it was perfect.
We took this tour on our first afternoon in Athens prior to visiting the Acropolis the following morning. We are pleased we did it this way otherwise this visit might have been a bit of an anti-climax. Very scenic drive out of Athens, lovely views over the Aegean from the site, would be great at sunset but we left a few hours before this event. This is a great tour to take on a first afternoon in the city because you get to see something of Athens, the Piraeus area, the picturesque coastline and of a course an interesting historical site.
I don't believe they actually do the walking tour; beware they will just "upgrade" you to the bus tour; which they did to me. Of course it is hard to complain about seeing the Acropolis; it is beautiful to see no matter how they get you there and you do see more of the city and stop at the olympic stadium and go through the museum. The description of the walking tour on this site is not the same that they have onsite. I mentioned missing seeing all the churches and they said that is not part of the walking tour but it is clear on this website? I also had to pay additional money for my entrance fee to the Acropolis and the Museum; which I probably only needed for the museum; so I felt a little taken advantage of. The tour guide was great and very knowledgable; you don't get as much free time as stated in the walking tour (about 40 minutes). The Cape Sounion tour was also nice; long 1 1/2 hour drive along the coast (beautiful) to see the site that takes about 15 minutes to walk around. They have a nice patio with bar service so it is actually a nice way to end the day with a drink looking up at the the Temple of Poseidon and the Agean Sea.
This tour was a painful way to spend our last afternoon in Athens. It took an hour to finish picking up the other guests, including waiting fifteen minutes for the tour guide to show up. The tour guide, though well intentioned, was nerve racking. She spoke in triple slow motion, enunciating every syllable plus adding a few of her own. She also wore too much perfume. I got a headache immediately, when she walked down the aisle of the bus. The drive to Sounion was very pleasant. It was very warm at Poseidon's temple. Thirty minutes would have been plenty for this stop. An hour and fifteen was too long. It then took over two hours to return to our hotel. Our four hour tour took five and a half hours. It is the last bus tour I will ever take. My time would have been much better spent exploring the wonderful buildings and museums and neighborhoods of Athens.
Spectacular drive down the coast to a stirring monument. Great way to spend the afternoon. Beautiful setting - dont miss it!
A great 1/2 day trip from Athen
Great scenery along the way and at the Cape Sounion. Feels like you are on an island without going into one. The bad point is that you are on the bus most of the time as the journey there takes about 1.5 hours.
Well organized and a beautiful drive to the temple. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
It was great to have visited the three points of the golden triangle.
Highlight of tour is the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum.
A long bus ride with little to see at the end of it. The guide gave minimal information, which I found rather disappointing since the other guides had been very detailed in their explanations and told the various myths etc relating to the deities/monuments on view. Not really worth the money paid for the trip.
Excellent half day trip from Athens. Pick up on time, drive was great with great coastal scenery along the way. Martina our guide was very good. She was enthusiastic, friendly and informative.
The view at the temple was amazing.
I would definitely recommend this tour.
