The nice thing about this tour is that the site is an easy bus ride from Athens yet far enough away to cut down on the crowds.
This is one half day trip worth taking!!! The view of the Aegean Sea on the way is simply breathtaking!! I was lucky enough to have Dimitra as the tour guide for this trip as well!! The view from the Temple of Poseidon is just amazing, makes for some awesome videos!!!!!
Hotel pick up was on time as promised. The guide was informative pointing out many sights along the way and then a full guided tour at Cape Sounion. The views are incredible! Would recommend this tour.
Wonderful place to visit, we were a party of 5 adults and thoroughly enjoyed the drive from Athens along the coastal road and although very very windy Cape Sounion was well worth braving the elements. Our tour guide was delightful and informative and i'm so very sorry but i cant remember her name although she did say the english translation was "Silver" so hopefully she can recognise herself :)
An afternoon well spent!
Exactly as we expected, and a pleasant change from the bustle of Athens. We were picked up near our location in Athens. The driver and guide were both very professional. Our knowledgeable tour guide narrated our drive down to Sounion from Athens. We stopped briefly just short of Sounion for some distance photos. Our guide gave us a private tour of the Temple property, as well as some time to explore on our own and have cold drinks in the small cafe outside the front gates. We are a family of four, including a 12 and 15 year-old. This tour made everyone happy.
This was a really nice tour. The temple of Poseidon is spectacular and the journey to it was along the coast so the views were wonderful. Our guide was excellent. She was very informative and obviously loved her job. She not only gave us insights into ancient Greece, but also, in response to questions, talked about the problems Greece is presently experiencing. Another very nice feature was that the tour was not commercialized (unlike many tours there were no stops at shops with pressure to buy something). I was really happy with the tour.
Spectacular drive down the coast to a stirring monument. Great way to spend the afternoon. Beautiful setting - dont miss it!
You have to go and see the Temple of Poseidon! It is unbelievable! The Temple, the story/history is awesome. The ride to Cape Sounion is very nice. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, giving us most of the information on the ride up so that when you got there you had plenty of time to take it all in and shoot pictures. The only thing I was bummed about was not getting to see the sunset. This tour was great!
Excellent half day trip from Athens. Pick up on time, drive was great with great coastal scenery along the way. Martina our guide was very good. She was enthusiastic, friendly and informative.
The view at the temple was amazing.
I would definitely recommend this tour.
The place is incredible, next to the sea, by the coast, just the guide wasn't that good.
This afternoon tour was terrific!! So beautiful...The ride from Athens to Cape Sounion is gorgeous and the temple itself is very nice. Wonderful scenery for photos. I loved this tour!
Nice half day trip from Athens, the weather was lovely. We enjoyed the tour.

Lovely tour guide and excellent scenery at Cape Sounion. Would recommend this trip.
Very good guide, told a lot about sorroundings and about the temple. Showed pictures during his information, which helped understanding the ruins. Very nice day. Have been there before, but this time I understood much more thanks to the very good guiding. It was also nice to drive along the coast insted of the highway.
Hilight of the trip for my 14 year old grandson. Scenery on the trip was beautiful and the guide did a wonderful job of giving us the history.
Fanastic tour - the guide was friendly and informative. Well spoken and her english was easy to understand. It was extremely windy the afternoon we went. But who can control the weather. Maybe it was Poseidon...
It was a lovely day trip! The coach was prompt on pickup, the drive out to Sounion was enjoyable and very scenic. Our tour guide was very informative! Sounion is spectacular and worth the trip!
