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.
A beautiful ride to the Temple. We had Doreen as our tour guide and she was excellent. Very informative and helpful. We had her for another tour in the morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. She saw us on the street a few days later and remembered us! She really knows her stuff and made the tour fun and informative. A must do just to get away from the city!
This is a nice ride to Cape Sounion and our guide was nice and very knowledgable and the Temple of Poseidon is worth seeing up over the sea.
A true highlight to our trip to Greece. Tour guide was exccellent!!
Sit on the right side of the bus the scenery on the drive out to Cape Sounion was captivating, it is a shame that you have to leave before sunset which would have made it quite a spectacular trip.
This was by far the most beautiful drive from Athens to the cape. Wow, it was breathtaking. Our guide was terrific and she made everything come to life for us. We never intended this vacation to be an educational trip but we sure learned a lot! This was my favorite place on our Athens trip.
The backdrop of the Cape Sounion with the temple is brilliant.Our guide was very well informed and she kept us telling us little tit-bits of good information even while we were leaving athens......a very good experience.
Beautiful drive south along the coast, very good tour guide, quite informative about yet another overwhelming site we've visited on this trip to Athens.
This was a beautiful and scenic excursion. On the way up to Cape Sounion, it would be best to sit on the right hand side of the tour bus, and on the left for the return trip. Fortunately the day was beautiful, and we had a fabulous time.
Your drive to this destination will mesmerize you! The beauty of Athens Riviera will be on the bus's right side and is definitely where you want to sit. The ruins are extraordinary, and the natural beauty surrounding the place commands you to check your camera's memory card for plenty of space. Give yourself some time to visit the small shop where the buses park.
Sounion was a great trip. Definitely worth a half day trip from Athens by bus.
