Great afternoon tour. Bus was comfortable and clean. Good driver, maybe a little aggressive. Nice drive from Athens along the Water. Very knowledgeable guide although somewhat hard to understand. May help for her to talk a little slower. Overall an excellent trip.

This was a great tour, altho' the pickup of passengers was very awkward, and took a LONG time. The drive was about 1 1/2 hours each way, but it was worth it. Even the trip in the bus was nice because we were able to see the coast for many miles. Tour guide again was excellent, and had a great dinner recommendation for us in Athens

Beautiful side of Athens and was comfortable on the airconditioned coach bus. Would have liked more history of The Poseidon Temple from the guide though.

Easy tour - was good for us and our 3 young children. They enjoyed the coach ride as well as the view from the temple.

This was an amazing tour! I highly recommend Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon. The views are breathtaking and the drive to get there was just beautiful!

This tour is not a very hectic tour. It a half a day light tour and hence an enjoyable one. The view of the peninsula is awesome. Ruins of Poseidon temple is definitely an added attraction. Though we left before the sunset, I presume it must be very good to see sun setting in the sea.

Our guide in the tour was very good and friendly.

The drive along the coast is a bonus for this trip. It is reminiscent of Highway 1 in Northern California. Cape Sounion and the Temple were interesting and beautiful but the weather was bitterly cold and windy. Again, February is not primo tourist season. I heard this tour was cancelled the previous day because of weather so I was happy that ours was not cancelled and I got to experience the Cape and Temple despite the weather. Our guide Emma was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and eager to share her info with us. My personal story is about the tour company, guide, and bus driver: When the tour was completed and I was dropped off at my hotel, I soon realized I left my cellphone on the seat of the bus. Frantic, I had my hotel contact the Tour Company and I said I would take a taxi there to retrieve it, please don't lock up the bus without retrieving my phone! The Tour company located my phone and said the bus driver would return it to me at my hotel shortly. Sure enough, the bus driver arrived by motorcycle and handed me my phone. He would NOT accept any money from me for his efforts despite my insistence. Equally impressive was that I had folded Euros in plain sight in my iPhone case which was still there too. I informed the Tour Company how relieved I was and how impressed I was with their personnel and their company for their honesty, compassion, and efficient service. Yes, I would recommend this tour!
