Booking these together was well worth it. Tour guides were very smart and both trips were tours I will never forget!

This is a must when you go to Athens. Make sure you wear tennis shoes and if in summer a hat. Bring water. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. There is a lot of walking and plenty of ancient history to absorb.
The Acropolis walking tour was amazing. To be that close to history was phenomenal and our tour guide Pantelis did a wonderful job of educating us about so many of the aspects of that era. We also had some free time to really see the Acropolis and Parthenon.
We then walked back to our meeting place where we had a short lunch break.
After lunch we took a bus to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. It was a beautiful drive along the coast and our new guide Effie did an excellent job of describing the sights along the way. She also gave us the history of the Temple of Poseidon.
There is a lot of walking on uneven ground for both of these tours, so if you can't navigate hills and rough terrain I would not recommend this tour. If you can, then it's a 'must do'.
A couple of expenses to note before you leave your ship or hotel:
Price of the cab ride to and from the meeting place.
Price of admission to the Acropolis
Price of lunch-the tour met at a hotel and they had a varied menu/excellent food
Really enjoyed this!
Fun to meet other tourists and also see the sights. Very happy I booked this tour
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.
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.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and not waiting in lines gave us more time to enjoy the ruins.
Our tour guide Dorina was very good. The walking allowed us the experience of the National Garden and the opportunity to see ruins in the area on the way to the Acropolis. Very enjoyable and I felt satisfied with our choice to walk rather than tour bus.
Met in a central location that was easy to get to. The walking tour showed us the highlights of the historical monuments of the city and the guide brought everything to life. Quite a bit of walking involved, and ended up at the Acropolis just around noon, so very warm, but well worth the effort!
We learned so much about the history of the area - lots of interesting details. Great tour!!
This was an excellent tour! We really enjoyed it. It was a long ride but after a day of running around, it was exactly what we needed.
These were both excellent experiences. The guides were superb. We learned and saw a lot in a short period of time. Since we were only in Athens for 2 days, we wanted to make the most of it. We also chose tours because we didn't know what the situation would be like in Greece right before the referendum. We felt very safe and relaxed on the tours. We LOVED these tours and Athens as well, and want to come back. Our prayers are with the people of Greece in this troubled time. Judith
Both tours were informative. The tour down the western side of the pensuliar to Cape Sounion provided a good insight to the local seascape.
Great tour guide. She was able to answer all questions. Beautiful views from the Acropolis. Amazing time at cape sounion to see temple of Poseidon! Athens has a lot to offer!
The morning was a 4 hour walking tour that covered the President's Palace, Olympic Stadium, Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Zeus and the Olympic Stadium. We ended by climbing the hill to the Acropolis. The Acropolis was a bit of a let down as it is extremely crowded and practically covered with scaffolding and cranes. still amazing to experience a 2500 year old monument. The afternoon was a bus ride to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon which was amazing. No crowds, amazing ocean views and a relatively pristine temple. Awesome day!
Great day - the Acropolis was great and the tour guide was excellent with information and knowledge
Cape Sounion was the highlight - unexpected and was uncrowded - a nice coach drie, then this amazing location - we had a really good day!
Awesome tour. Loved every second of it. The goes were very well informed and answer every question.
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.
