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!

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!
Wonderful trip. Great guide with lots of personality and full of information on history, myths, area, even gave us a lesson (asked if we like to do it) in learning some greek words. The Cape is beautiful and a must see.
We really enjoyed this tour, We had enough time to enjoy it and our guide was very knowledgable.
A most see for those committed to getting acquainted with Athens and the surrounding area. It really contributes to understanding more about Athens' influence via the sea.
This was definatly awesome. Lots of great photos riding along the beach getting there and lots of photos once there.
This trip was our first tour after we landed in the morning. We got a good look at the Greek coast and understood why Poseidon was such an important god to the ancient Greeks. Our guide did an excellent job of explaining how and why temples were built as they were.
She was well-informed and clear.
I would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent way to spend a lovely afternoon and an early evening outside the busy city of Athens. The drive to the Cape is gorgeous, and we left right on time, and arrived in time to hear the history, walk around the temple, AND I even made it down the hill (and back up) to swim in the Aegean Sea. What a blast!!
Katia was our guide and she was excellent-so brilliant and her love for her countrymade the trip even more special.
