What You Can Expect

Athens Super Saver: Acropolis Walking Tour plus Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip

Temple of Poseidon

Acropolis Walking Tour (3 hours): 

Meet your guide near Syntagma Square, and see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Greek Parliament, where the Changing of the Guard ceremony tales place.

Next, stretch your legs around the National Gardens, and admire sights like Zappeion Congress Hall, Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Continue through the paved streets of Plaka — the heart of Athens’ Old Town — and then follow the pedestrianized Dionyssiou Areopagitou walkway up to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis.

At the top, enter (own expense) this magnificent complex of sun-baked temples and take a guided tour of its star attractions. Stroll around the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea, the Acropolis’ gateway, as you learn about their history; and marvel at the centerpiece: the Parthenon.

Having explored the main monuments, your tour finishes at the Acropolis. Say goodbye to your guide and enjoy around two hours at leisure before the start of your afternoon trip.

Afternoon Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Trip (4 hours):
In the afternoon, reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you venture south to Cape Sounion. Along the way, admire the picturesque beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear stories of the Cape, the rocky promontory at the tip of the Attica peninsula, and its famous, ancient Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the phenomenal sea views and if the weather is clear, cast your eyes over the island of Kea in the distance.

Admire the Doric columns of the 5th century BC temple, and discover the Greek myths that surround the building. Be sure, too, to check out the inscription carved by the English poet Lord Byron on one of the columns in the early 1800s.

Afterward, return to Athens where your tour concludes at your hotel or the closest point to your accommodation.

Fantastic tour. Guide Sisi was amazing for the Acropolis portion, both at the site and in the Museum. Normally I don't like guided tours of museums, but she pointed out stuff that I found fascinated that I would have missed otherwise. It's a remarkable museum.
We went on Christmas Eve, so no one was at the Acropolis and it was heaven. When we got to the Parthenon, there were less than 50 people up there. Glorious!
Cape Sounion was in the afternoon. Our driver was awesome and the ride was gorgeous. The key to the site is to be there at or near sunset for stunning photographs. Otherwise it's a meh excursion, you go down, you come back. Still worth doing if you are there are sunset.

The walking tour was really amazing. The guide was super friendly and personable in addition to being knowledgeable about Athens, its' sights and its' history she even gave us recommendations on restaurants. The trip to Cape Sounion in the afternoon was equally great. It was about an hour drive outside of Athens so there was quite a bit of sitting on the bus. This entire tour was totally worth it especially for people who don't have a lot of time to spend in Athens because it certainly brings you to the highlights of the city.

Very good experience, especially on the walking tour. Our guide Katerina was very good and she made an effort to talk to everyone separately on the walk. She also gave many interesting facts about the Acropolis

This tour was very exciting, informative, and personal. We had an AMAZING time with our guide and truly learned a lot from our experience. I would recommend this tour and this guide to anyone who plans to travel to this area of Europe. The tour was well-worth the money, and I will definitely book this tour or a similar tour the next time I travel!

The walking is a good deal if you only have a day or two in Athens, Otherwise , you can do it all on your own with 3 day trip. We enjoyed the tour. Cape Sounion is ok . Nice drive along the sea. But really kind of a yawn after seeing the Acropolis.

It was a marvelous and magical experience. We went back on time on every step we climbed towards Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon.
