Bit of a long drive but worth it when we got to the Temp,e of Poisedon.
Great tour, except Cape Sounion which was a long drive for not much to see, especially compared to Delphi.
The Cape Sounion tour guide was not very enthustasitc.
This tour delivered everything it promised. Our guide, Daphne, was exceptional. She was very helpful to the older ladies that had some difficulty climbing and was very aware of their limitations. She stayed with us extra time to ensure the ladies got down safely, got something to eat and we all knew where to pick up our second tour. Even got a few minutes to shop in Plaka but not much more. Beautiful sunset over the beaches on the drive home.
This is a great tour for a half day. The guide was informative and friendly, I learned a great deal.
A BIT LATE PICKING US UP FROM THE HOTEL BUT TOUR GUIDE EXCELLENT.
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO START EARLIER I.E. 1PM NOT 2PM AS GETTING DARK AT SOUNION BY THE END OF IT.
Nice combination of the Acropolis + Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion for a good feel of Athens and ancient Greece.
Very beautiful site, however long drive, short stay and high cost made me rate it a 3, you can probably do it much cheaper on your own.
I and my wife had a very good time in our honeymoon during this tour. Acropolis is amazing as well as Cape Sounion (Poseidon Temple)!!! The road sight to Cape Sounion is very beautiful... So, we enjoyed too much this trip! The time inside the Acropolis museum was quite long for us, then we left there before the group. Anyway, this is a very good tour to do when visiting Athens!
This was a very good tour. The guide was very pleasant and informative. The 90 minute motorcoach ride to and from Cape Sounion was beautiful and our guide gave us the backstory on the Temple of Poseidon. The site itself is really something to behold - if you have the time and want to see a bit more than what central Athens has to offer, this is a relaxing and very worthwhile experience.
If you don't have a car but wanted to see a classical Greek site without the mad crush of tourists, this is a good little get away. Our tour guide Aphrodite (yes, like the goddess) beguiled us with stories of Athens, its different landmarks, how the city has changed, and linking the past and the present during the ride out to the site. As we get closer to it, the view of the Ionic Sea framed by the rockiness of the coast and offset by the sun and clouds made for an spectacular introduction to the drive leading to the Temple of Poseidon. While at the site, you can get some spectacular views of the Aegean and the Ionic Seas and understand why a temple dedicated to the god of the sea would be built at that location. Aphrodite not only guided us through the history of the port city, she also guided us through the myths to the anthropological history behind the myths. But like she said, we should all forget about the history and just remember the romantic stories surrounding the myths.
Vicky as she calls herself in English is pretty well versed and knowledgeable guide who can give you give a lot of information in a short duration. Starting from mythology, to food, culture and traditions she ensures that the 1.5 hour ride is worth every penny. I took the tour in mid-october and sun was still bring in the evening so i couldn't see the sunset, not sure if this the case otherwise but beyond this small disappointment ! everything has been wonderful !
Scenery and narrations of history were amazing.
