What You Can Expect

Athens Super Saver: City Sightseeing Tour and Half-Day Cape Sounion Trip plus Delphi Day Trip

Caryatids at the Acropolis in Athens

Athens Morning Sightseeing Tour and Half-Day Cape Sounion Trip (Day 1 or 2  your choice):

After a morning pickup at your Athens hotel or a central meeting point, settle into your air-conditioned coach and begin your sightseeing tour.

With your guide, admire Athens’ historical and modern highlights, including bustling Omonia Square and Syntagma Square, home to the Greek Parliament House. 

Pass the Panathenaic Stadium, the arena that staged the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, and then enjoy a guided walking tour of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis — the cluster of classical monuments on the rocky outcrop above the city.
 Admire the 5th-century BC Parthenon; see the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion, and learn more about the Acropolis and its ruins at the Acropolis Museum.



Your sightseeing tour then comes to an end, leaving you free time to relax and have lunch (own expense) before your trip to Cape Sounion.

In the afternoon, leave Athens by air-conditioned coach and pass the pretty beaches of the Saronic Gulf as you travel to the tip of the Attica peninsula, where a rocky promontory forms the cape. 

Here, visit theTemple of Poseidon, a semi-ruined white marble temple on the clifftops. Learn how the temple was built in 44BC, and hear the ancient myths that surround it as you absorb the sea views.

Your tour finishes at your pre-booked Athens hotel or at the start point.

Delphi Day Trip 
(Day 1 or 2  your choice):
Board your air-conditioned coach at your Athens hotel or a central meeting point, and journey to Delphi, one of Greece’s most famous classical sites.

After brief stops on route, arrive at this archaeological wonder on the slopes of Mt Parnassus and take a walking tour around the highlights as your guide recounts how the site was dedicated to the god Apollo and home to the legendary Delphic oracle.

Stroll around the Temple of Apollo, the 4th century BC temple where the oracle sat, see the reconstructed Athenian Treasury, and gaze at Delphi's stadium, where the Pythian Games — athletics contests held every four years — were staged from 582 BC.

Afterward, visit the Delphi Archaeological Museum to view some of the treasures excavated at the site; and enjoy an included lunch of Greek dishes at a local restaurant.

Lastly, travel back to Athens, where your tour ends at the start point.

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.

Katvah was a wonderful guide on part of this tour. This two day experience was a great choice for us. The guides should always use a portable mike so all can hear. Not a problem on the bus.
The antquities at Delphi and Poseidn were amazing. Highly recommend this choice of the City tour and then Poseidon' temple
