What You Can Expect
After pickup from your Athens hotel in the morning by comfortable, air-conditioned coach, visit the Acropolis, the crowning beauty and glory of Ancient Athens. See several monuments atop its rocky base, including the awesome Parthenon, the Propylea, the temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion, with its Porch of Maidens.
Next, drive to Panathenaic Stadium, the site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament House in Constitution Square and see views of government buildings and elegant 19th-century structures.
Get a taste of modern Athens with a drive along Panepistimiou Avenue, where you'll see the Catholic Cathedral of Athens, Academy of Athens, University of Athens and National Library. Finish with a visit to the Acropolis Museum, featuring fascinating archaeological exhibitions. Your tour will end around 1:30pm, and you’ll have about an hour of free time to relax and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) before your afternoon tour.
Afternoon: Cape Sounion Trip
Around 2:45pm, board the coach for a drive to Cape Sounion, passing the idyllic beaches of the Saronic Gulf along the way. When you arrive, see the astounding Temple of Poseidon, a gleaming white beacon perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the sea.
Admire an incredible view across the Aegean Sea and even the island of Kea on a clear day. Learn from your guide how the temple was built in 44 BC, and how many of its original Doric columns are still standing. One of the columns features a graffito left by English poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s.
After your tour, you’ll be driven comfortably back to your Athens hotel.
One feels like one is a part of history while walking in the shadow of the Parthenon on the Acropolis. Amazing structure. The tour of Cape Sounion offers unparalleled views all around.
Our guide was a wealth of knowledge and passionate about all the places we visited. The top floor of the museum is a fantastic way to feel like you are walking in the Parthenon. We got to see the sun setting at Cape Sounion. Magical!!

This is a great tour in which you get to see everything in Athens in a short time. The trip to Sounion gives you a taste of the coast and it worth while to take. Good time was had by all.
Good tour. Guide was informative. Cape Sounion was a bit far, about an hour and a half to get there and another hour and a half to get dropped back off at hotel, to only stay at the site for an hour!
I liked it because it included all the highlights. We did the Acropolis first thing and avoided crowds and heat. The guide was great and to the point.
The afternoon trip was great because we got to rest and then were taken to Sounion. We were given free time which was great.
It was great to just enjoy the sights of the Acropolis and have someone explaining and pointing interesting points I'm glad I wore good sandals there was a lot of walking
The tour guide was very informative and it worth the time
This tour was amazing!
Great tour!!! Highly recommended
