Our guide was so friendly and showed us interesting stops along the way. At the temple, he let us take as long as we wanted! The sights were beautiful and the temple, gorgeous!
Amazing place

This excursion is very well worth it. We were picked up at our hotel in a small van with 4 others. The driver, Pannos was informative about all things Greece :) The views are breathtaking and beautiful! Once at the Temple of Poseidon, even though it was a cloudy day and we didn't see a colorful sunset, it was just as beautiful!
Place good, guide not good

Great place to visit but our guide just left us to our own to wander and did not explain much during tour or drive to and from the place. Other tours were there and we noticed their guide went with them and explained the area the entire time.
Great tour!

Great tour guide who was happy to answer questions and tell us about the history! The site was beautiful as well! The itinerary said we would be stopping at a beach and would have the opportunity to have food/drinks if we wished but that did not happen on our tour so I was pretty hungry by the time I returned

Panos was the perfect guide -reaching out to determine everyone’s needs, and taking care of it! He explained things well, stopped for a few extra hidden gems along the way, got photos of everyone with their own cameras. Just terrific!! Thank you!!!

I contacted this tour the day before as the forecast called for rain. Since this was a sunset tour and the temple was outdoors, I didn't want to spend 5 hours on a van for nothing when our time in Athens was already limited to one day. I was assured the weather would be favorable. I thought maybe they had access to different weather report than I? They told me they would not cancel the tour. It poured rain the entire time. Not just a drizzle that you could make the best of, but hard wind blown sideways rain that would have you soaked. We took one picture of the temple from a distance and then turned around back for Athens. I understand the weather was not their fault but I wish they would have let me cancel so we could have spent our time doing something else. It was a waste of money and our time in Athens.
This was wodnerful and the most scenic route.

Great trip

This tour was an incredible experience made even more pleasant by our friendly and accommodating host/driver Panos. After making our way through traffic we were wowed by the picturesque view of the coastline all the way to our destination. Prior to our final stop at the Temple of Poseidon we stopped at a small beach below the temple where you can opt to swim if time permits. But the real bang for your buck comes with seeing the lovely sunset once at the temple. At the end of the tour our driver Panos offered to take us to a restaurant on our way to Athens which turned out to be real nice thanks to the company. All in all the tour ended up being great even if almost ruined by some tourists on our bus who were not only rude but tried to make a control the outcome because they did not want to go to dinner. Thanks to Panos ability to accommodate his guest and his professionalism it did not dampen the mood. Thanks for a great time Panos.
Must do!
