The trip to Cape Sounion took longer than expected due to a trffic accident near Piraeus, but once we had arrived, there was ample time to walk around the site and admire the setting and scenery. The Attic coastline with its various riviera-style resorts is very picturesque. Our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the site, both ancient and more recent, and was able to speak at some length on this and on life in Athens generally.
This was a very useful tour for the first time visitor, as it provided orientation of the main city sights aboard the coach, as well as extensive visits to the Acropolis and the new Acropolis Museum. Our guide was very well-informed about all aspects of the tour, and provided fascinating detail during the visits to the Acropolis and the Museum.
A very good afternoon tour, with a knowledgeable and interesting guide, culminating in the highlight of a viewing of the Last Supper. Occasional malfunctioning of headsets was, however, a problem.
