Traveler Tips


The countryside is beautiful and when you have a good group on the bus, it can be real fun.
If you’re a small group we would recommend hiring a car instead and saving yourself some money.
There is a 30 min stop at the beach where you can cool off before going to the temple.

Temple of Poseidon
Rosemary_S, Dec 2021
Shotiris was an excellent guide who made us feel welcome. He was very knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable during our tour
Temple of Poseidon Day-trip
Jeffrey_A, Dec 2021
My wife and I greatly enjoyed this quick trip down the coast for the amazing views of and from the Temple of Poseidon. The guide was very personable and shared many insights of the areas we passed during the drive down and allowed us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves once at the site. Would very much recommend this as the vistas are outstanding.
Excellent experience
Irlanda_C, Nov 2021
Teddy was an excellent tour guide! He was very engaging and interactive with the people on the tour, playing a trivia game with us all, which made time fly. He was very knowledgeable and professional. My family and I had a great time on the tour. Highly recommend!
Lovely spot
janine_c, Nov 2021
Bus was clean, comfortable. The stop at the lake was for a very brief look from outside the fence. I would have given 5 stars if the driver hadn't told some hugely unnecessary lies about other Athens attractions. Still puzzling through that...
I Won't Let The Sun Go Down On Me

Great way to spend an afternoon. Granted it was overcast so there wasn't much of a sunset to speak of, but the visibility was good and it was a nice drive along the coast. Our tour guide, Teddy, was very knowledgeable and he only added to the experience. If you want to get out of Athens for a few hours then I would recommend this tour without hesitation.
Teddy was awesome! 10/10
Cristian_B, Nov 2021
The guide, Teddy, really made this trip awesome. I highly recommend it. The trip was fairly long but the fun games took our minds off of it. The temple itself is nice, but the views are incredible. One of the best trips I've had through Viator.
Teddy is a great guide!
Heather_J, Nov 2021
Teddy was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable and made it fun. He made the drive enjoyable and answered all of our questions. The temple was beautiful at sunset. I would highly recommend this!

Views from temple was nice Our driver/tour guide was great Pickup from the hotel was convenient The entrance fee would have been nice if included in the price
Good trip to Temple of Poseidon
Robert_W, Nov 2021
We had a great trip going to Cape of Sounion. After a stop at a volcanic water pool Lake Vouliagmeni we headed to Temple of Poseidon. There was a lot of discussion on the way about Greek methology and other topics. Sundown was absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately some clouds got in the way.
Half day trip from Athens
