In addition to the Temple site itself, this tour provides a good opportunity to see the southeastern seaside suburbs and beaches of Athens - a very nice drive. Our guide was excellent - very friendly, helpful and engaging. The temple is spectacularly located on a high headland with cliffs down to the sea and views in all directions. The site is well restored and impressive, and it's easy to imagine the ancient sailors gliding by reassured by the site of the temple above, heralding the approaches to Athens, still some distance away. A café-restaurant is located near the car park and offers a good range of refreshments. If looking for a pleasant afternoon break from the hustle of Athens this tour is well worth taking - very good value.

Our tour guide Xenia, was the best that we had the entire time that we were in Greece. She was highly knowledgeable and patient. The tour itself was also very beautiful and a must see while in Athens/Greece.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were picked up on time and then headed out of the city to see the Temple of Poseidon. The ruins are quite remarkable and the view surrounding the area is breathtaking.
