This tour was amazing. Our appreciation for Matina who is a wonderful tour guide, very caring and clear in her explanations and so attentive. The wine tasting event was also such a nice experience. The scenery during the trip to Cape Sounion was breathtakingly beautiful and so was it around the Temple of Poseidon. The tour was an unforgettable event.
I had been to Athens once before and therefore wanted to explore something a little different this trip. I figured the poseidon temple would be fantastic at sunset but I was a little worried that the long trip to and from Cape Sounion would be disappointing for my family and me. It absolutely was not. The views from the bus the entire time were beautiful. We got to see a side of Athens we were not otherwise able to see. The Riviera south of Athens was lovely - beautiful beaches and small towns I didn't know existed. Very different from the crowded city of Athens yet not deserted or decaying as so many of the towns we saw inland during our drive from Athens to Meteora earlier in the trip. This was a delight. We enjoyed our tour guide and the beautiful views of Cape Sounion once we arrived. The pick up and drop off at our hotel made this easy. It was definitely worth it in my opinion and I think worthwhile even for first timers in Athens.
Great afternoon/evening spent driving along the Athenian Riviera with a quick guided tour of the temple ruins before being left on our own to watch the sun set over the water. The lighting of the setting sun was pure magic. Every photo we took looks amazing. And the glass of wine to toast to the setting sun is perfection. This was our last tour of our trip and was a perfect way to conclude our tour of Greece. Highly recommend it if you want a relaxing tour and sunset experience.
Sounion is AMAZING. It is really really a beautiful place and I highly recommend this excursion for anyone who is interested in getting out of the city. The tour guide was really knowledgeable, however I felt completely rushed. We were there just as the sun was setting and I really wanted to take in the sights and really enjoy the grounds. The tour guide was really excellent, but we only had 10 minutes to enjoy the grounds on our own before the site closed. I'm glad I did the tour you get a lot of great information that you'd never get otherwise, but if you're looking to relax and enjoy the actual grounds, I suggest renting a car and spending more time on your own. After we left the actual site, we did get to spend about an hour sipping a glass of wine and admiring the sunset from afar. This was, again, really nice but personally I would have liked to have spent more time at the actual site/surrounding areas.
Anastasia was very informative and the location was beautiful. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to see the sunset.
This tour was amazing!
There was a little confusion about pick-up point and boarding. Average tour with average guide and driver.
If only we had seen the sunset, would have been magical but unfortunately it was a wet cloudy afternoon. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us great tips for our stay in not only Athens but also Greece.
