The tour and guide were awesome. It was a great way to see the city and learn about the sites. The bus was clean and tour guide was knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Athens. The only issue I had was not having a set pick-up location given to me when I booked the tour; I had to have the hotel call the tour company when we arrived in Athens. Good thing the company was still open when we arrive since they picked us up an hour earlier (0735) than I had planned for and we probably wouldn't have been able to recover if had we waiting until morning to contact them.
Given this trip involves around 3 hours of travel (there and back) I think it's fair to say you need to be really keen on the history of Greece to do this. The temple remains are pretty impressive, but there's nothing else here to grab you attention, so to be honest even with the guide talking you through the history of the place it's done in 30 minutes. Great views over the Aegean sea though. The tour guide was great and the trip was comfortable (decent vehicle) - so would recommend if historical stuff is really your thing, but not if it's a passing interest.
too many people. trip was too impersonal. guides were good but info too general. will book private guide next time. I did a group tour in Paris with your company that was excellent. I wonder why the Athens tour was not good.....
Great trip. The Temple was amazing and the Guide did a great job.
Delphi trip was very nice, guide was very knowledgeable.
It is okay if you have only half day to get out of Athens to explore another historical site.
The tour was very easy-going and informative. The guide was nice and talked to us about Greece, the history, the language all the way and back to Athens. The Cape Sounion is absolutely amazing, the temple itself is very well kept and the views are awesome. The sunset over the sea is memorable. Excellent tour for a quick trip outside Athens.
Excellent tour very informative guide
enjoyed this very much. Lovely drive and interesting temple. Ideal tour if you are just wanting a relaxing afternoon. Hotel transfers well organized also.
Although our walking tour became a driving tour since the main arteries were closed for Independence Day parades, this was still a good way to see the main city sites, plus the Acropolis and the Temple of Poseidon. The bus was clean and comfortable and the guide was very knowledgeable. We only wish the guide had talked less and given us more free time to enjoy the Acropolis at our own pace.
Cape Sounion is beautiful and not too far of a drive from Athens. Wish we had better weather but no one controls that :) Our guide was informative/easy to understand on the bus and at the site. We were given ample time to explore and take pics.
Long bus ride to see ruins by the seaside!! It's pretty but an hour to get there and an hour back leaving about 45-55 mins to walk around the temple..
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.
