What You Can Expect
You’ll be picked up at your Athens hotel in the morning and taken by comfortable, air-conditioned coach on a sightseeing tour. With your guide, explore the city’s historic and modern sites, including central Omonia Square and Constitution Square. Drive past the Panathenaic Stadium, the site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, and visit Athens’ crowning beauty, the Acropolis.
Stop by the famed Parthenon, Athena Nike Temple and beautiful Porch of the Maidens, and learn more about the Acropolis and its ruins at the Acropolis Museum.
Enjoy free time to relax and enjoy lunch (own expense) before embarking on a journey to Cape Sounion in the afternoon, passing the idyllic beaches of the Saronic Gulf along the way.
Arrive at the astounding Temple of Poseidon, a gleaming white beacon perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the Aegean Sea. Your guide will tell you all about this incredible site, which was built in 44 BC. Afterward, you’ll be dropped off at your pre-booked Athens hotel for an overnight stay.
Day 2: Delphi Day Trip
In the morning, relax on the drive to Delphi, making several brief stops along the way. Arrive at the archaeological wonder and take a guided tour, where you’ll learn how the site was dedicated to the worship of Apollo and was once home to the most important oracle in the classical Greek world.
Visit Delphi’s most important building, the ancient Temple of Apollo, now a poignant collection of pillars and steps. Follow the sacred path to the restored Athenian Treasury, a classic temple designed with Doric columns.
You’ll also visit the site’s stadium, where musical competitions and the Pythian Games, similar to the Olympic Games, were held beginning in 776 BC. Then, visit the archaeological museum, filled with gold, bronze and ivory statues, and enjoy a Greek lunch in the nearby modern-day town.
After your tour, reminisce on your amazing Greece experience on the way back to your Athens hotel.

The tour guide is what made this tour. She explained everything so well and brought the history of Athens to life. You will see all the major sites of Athens on this tour, and your ticket is good for four additional days to visit all the archeological sites of Athens.
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.
