Very good tour with a very good guide! Christo was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining making the entire tour extremely engaging. My wife and I joined the tour with one other traveller. Weather was a little overcast on the day we went but the views were still pretty impressive during sunset. A worthwhile tour.

DO NOT MISS! This was our favorite tour thanks to our super host Christo. The time flew by as he told us stories and history about Greece and answered all of our questions. The sunset at the Temple of Poseidon was outstanding. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Athens!

We were picked up at the place of our choice by Cristos, who has given us a very pleasant afternoon and a lot of information about Greece, Athens, cape Sounion and the temple of Poseidon. The beautiful sunset at the temple is really worth the trip. If you book this trip, make sure to bring swimwear! There is a 30 min stop at the beach where you can cool off before going to the temple.

Great trip - nice to see the Athens Riviera as we drove to Cape Sounion. Christos was a very informative guide, he was fun and engaged with everyone on the tour. We had just under an hour at the beach on the way and then an hour at Poseidon’s Temple.

Not great value for money

Theo was a great tour guide - knowledgeable, funny, engaging and attentive when one of the group felt sick on the way back from cape sounion. However, he wasn’t able to join us at cape sounion and instead left us at the gates. For the money per person this was disappointing. The experience also does not make it clear that the entry free to the temple is not included - another 10 euros each! For what you get, this tour is massively overpriced. If you’re a small group we would recommend hiring a car instead and saving yourself some money.
