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.
The tour was great! One of the highligts was seeing various neighborhoods in Athens. It seems the farther away you go from the heart of the city, the more eye catching it seems. Viewing the Temple was awesome and our tour guide was quite knowledable.
A great trip. The drive is great and the temple is even better
Our Guide was well equiped with historical narrative and visual aids to have us appreciate the meaning and purpose of this historic temple site we were viewing. Excellent!
Loved the cape and everything about the trip. They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back off at the same place when we were done. Very nice view and very informative tour guide.
Really great. Wonderful views and great commentary. Such an amazing place - a must see!
Absolutely fantastic, the drive up by the coast was beautifull.
The tour guide was very informative along route and whilst at Cape Sounion.
Definitely a must if travelling to Athens.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We got an appreciation of a beautiful side of Athens along the southern coast plus the visit to the historical temple was exciting and enhanced by excellent information from the tour guide.
Cape Sounion is wonderful and the temple of Poseidon is imponent.
beautiful ride along the coast; pleasant and knowledgeable guide; very thorough; a pleadant afternoon trip.
This was a very good way to cap off my trip to Greece. It's a pretty drive along the coast to get to the site, and the site itself is quite pretty. Our guide was good, spoke English well, and gave us plenty of time at the site after descriptions for taking photos and exploring the site. A sunny day would have been better, but that's not the tour's fault.
Lovely side trip to the Cape and the Temple of Poseidon. The timing is a bit off-would prefer if they offered sunset or sunrise tours. Otherwise, very beautiful ruins, knowledgeable guide, excellent pacing (not too much or too little time at the site). Try to go on a day when it is not windy if you can.
Excellent arrangement everything as planned, pity about the weather!
Great transportation, very professional, well organized and loved the historical review. We fully enjoyed it.
Excellent half day trip out of the hustle and bustle of Athens! Cape Sounion was gorgeous, and the temple was stunning, overlooking the water. There was plenty of time to explore the temple and the nearby area. Our tour guide was very friendly and tried very hard to make sure that everyone was satisfied and happy. Added bonus was being picked up for the hotel. Highly recommend this tour.
We had a great afternoon on our Viator trip and our guide was super! We loved the information provided and the trip was well planned. As always, I will continue to use Viator for all my excursion purchases when traveling.
Fabulous ! Very enjoyable and scenary was great. Definately worth the trip.
