Without a doubt, one of the best tours we have taken and we take a lot!. A bit more cost for the private tour, but it felt like a friend was showing us the sights. Didn't have to worry about the always whining/late back to the bus fellow travelers- just us and our guide David. And David was amazing: friendly, smart, let us set the pace, answered our numerous questions about the sights and the country. Our pictures and memories of the day trip to Sounion are wonderful.

Excellent half day tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the scenery is excellent. It's well worth doing this tour. Remember that you will be on an exposed peninsula so dress very warmly in winter!

Our driver's duty was simply to drive us there and back, this was basically a private taxi however I think the rate was a little better than a taxi simply because it was booked and paid for in advance. Our driver was very pleasant and we had a good conversation on the ride over and back. The temple itself, even if you get there another way, is definitely worth the trip. Very much intact with beautiful views from the temple over the water and surrounding area, this was maybe the most beautiful of all the temples and ruins we saw because of how well preserved the structure was with the backgrounds. It was also nice that we were there in April, when it is their Spring so the grass was green and new and there were lots of wildflowers.

This is worth seeing - Poseidon is my favorite so I couldn't miss this - Its a beautiful ruin and well kept - Scenery is very pretty - We did go to the cafe at the bottom of the bay and the food was delicous and well priced - Owners were nice and welcoming. Our guide was nice but did not see to have much to say about the ruins - Just thought we would hear more about the history there.
