Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After morning pickup at your hotel or other designated meeting point, climb aboard an air-conditioned coach equipped with Wi-Fi for a comfortable journey. Begin with a city sightseeing tour that takes you past some of Athens's most important contemporary monuments including the Panathinaikon Stadium (home of the first modern Olympic Games), Presidential Palace, National Library, Catholic Cathedral, and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of Parliament House.

No visit to Athens would be complete without a stop at the mighty Acropolis that rises above the city. Walk among its sacred ancient monuments such as the Parthenon, Propylae, Temple of Athena Nike, and Erechtheion, and delve even deeper into the history of the UNESCO World Heritage Site with an optional visit to the New Acropolis Museum.

Rest and recharge with an included lunch of typical Greek cuisine at the Amalia Hotel across from the beautiful National Gardens. In the afternoon, leave the bustle of the city behind and travel along scenic coastal roads past sea coves and beaches like Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza on the way to Cape Sounion. Here, be greeted by spectacular views of the Saronic Gulf and its many islands, with the ancient Temple of Poseidon towering above the Aegean Sea. Explore the archaeological site and learn about the many legends that surrounded it, including a story from The Odyssey in which Menelaus stops at the sanctuary during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman.

Relax on the return coach ride to Athens, where the full-day tour concludes back at your original departure point in the early evening.

Fun day out
Ranjeetha H

We had a lovely day of touring. We enjoyed the trip to the Acropolis and Cape Sounion. For the museum tour, although it was guided, we joined it partially (at the start and the end) and spent some time on our own in the museum to explore. Lunch was really good-very generous portions and tasty food. Please be prepared for an uphill fast pace walk to the Acropolis and huge crowds.

The acropolis was was just monumental. It felt great to be in the birthplace of Ancient Greece, then to see the wonderful historic pieces in the acropolis museum. The museum design is a piece of art in itself with its delightful open space concept. I feel so enriched by this whole experience👌

REVIEW OF Athens, The Acropolis and Cape Sounion Full-Day Tour with Lunch
smahanta53
, Jul 2019
Tour guides were excellent, professional, knowledgeable, bus services was excellent, reliable, helpful, supportive, and informative. It seems like we were the only family had full day tour with Lunch but believe me or not that lunch was excellent, it came with starter, main menu and desserts, we could not eat the whole menu. Overall we enjoyed the tour beautifully, gathered a tons of information about Athens and the tour guides ( there were 2 guides, one for Athens city, another one was for Cape Sounion) was excellent. 5 stars.

The tour started a little chaotic when the bus was late. then the guide did not explain the process and what was to expect so we sat on a hot bus for some time while they coordinated all the passengers. Once the tour got started it was really great. the lunch was amazing. and the afternoon tour to Cape Sounion was beautiful. My only issue is that we did not stay for the sunset. I wish that the afternoon tour started later and stayed for the sunset or stopped at a local beach area for people to walk around. otherwise it was good. VERY HOT.

Great guides but disappointing and bad first impression

My first time in Greece and with any new country I visit, I like to dive right in. I was met by a representative at the pick up site and I was then transferred to another hotel which appeared to be the meeting point for several tours with the local operator. It was chaotic, and quite off putting. I booked a full day tour so when my tour bus arrived, I was confused as to whether or not there was a bus for the half day passengers and another for the full day like myself. I asked a woman who was directing us like cattle and she was extremely RUDE. Without the tourists, she doesn’t have a job, let’s be honest. My interaction with her, is mainly why I can not rate this trip higher. The guides for the morning and afternoon tours were excellent and very eager to share their knowledge about Athens with you. The lunch which was included was quite disappointing honestly.

We were not aware that this tour was two tours combined. The morning part started at 9. The Acropolis part was good. The rest was not that great. The guide was not that good. The lunch was good. The afternoon trip started at 3pm. After lunch we have to sit around until 3 for the second trip. The guide for this trip was not that good at all. Overall it was an ok trip

Full Day Athens Tour

This was a nice tour with a bus to the Acropolis with guide narrative of Athens along the way. The guide give some history but after a while I got lost in the names, dates, battles, and details. I just wanted to get to the top. We had over an hour at the top which was fine. Lunch was good and lots of food. The drive to Cape Sounion was about 90 minutes and you get a lot of history on the way. At the Temple of Poseidon there is a nice little restaurant to relax after exploring the temple. If I had to do it again I would do the Acropolis on my own after visiting the museum first but do the tour to Cape Sounion. Overall it was a good booking and the guides were all great.

This is a very good tour. Personally its best to choose the option with lunch when purchasing this tour. You can request to be picked up at your hotel within the city limits of Athens. Hotel Amalia is the meeting place for the bus if you choose otherwise. Hotel Amalia is a 4 star hotel which has a nice atmosphere. The morning will begin around 0845-0900 and last approximately until 1115. Acropolis Museum is an option as you will be asked if you would like to pay for this. I choose not to because The National Archaeological Museum in Athens houses some of the most important artifacts from a variety of archaeological locations around Greece from prehistory to late antiquity. Since I choose not attend the extra charge of the Acropolis Museum, Hotel Amalia prepares a beautiful lunch for you. Afterwards, you will have approximately 3 hours of free time if you are doing Cape Sounion in the afternoon. I walked to the Mitropoleos Square which only takes less than ten minutes to walk. Here you can purchase many different items for negotiable prices. This is one of the better places for shopping in Athens for tourists. Many times at the tour locations, the prices are slightly higher. Cape Sounion is noted for its Temple of Poseidon, one of the major monuments of the Golden Age of Athens. Its remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. Cape Sounion will depart approximately 1445 from Hotel Amalia. This was the highlight of the trip in my opinion. It takes about one hour to drive. Most of the driving is along the coastline because Cape Sounion is located on the southernmost tip of the Attic peninsula in Greece. Once you arrive ensure you walk the entire grounds. Dont just focus on the Temple of Poseidon. You can take beautiful pictures if you walk the steps/trails.
