    The temple was amazing. Took great pictures. Wish we could have been there at sunset. If the tour had started at 4:00 it would have been perfect.

    Lovely tour guide, very knowledgeable and welcoming. Could have had a little more time at the cape so we could enjoy the facilities and beautiful view.

  • 13-Oct-2022

    a lovely coastal drive with beautiful scenery culminating in the sight of the magnificent Temple of Poseidon overlooking the sea

    This half day trip began with a pick up at our hotel. We had an expereinced guide who gave us the background to the religious cult of the temple of Poseidon. The journey was well worth the experience. The ruins of the temple, visble as we approached were inspiring and as we made our return journey, the sunset over the mountins was captivating. At the end we were dropped off at our hotel. A very satisfying experience. Hightly recommended.

    Very nice tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and informative, and the temple was beautiful. The hotel pickup was also so convenient.

    The guide should give more information and be less racist. I think she didn't like Turkey. That's the vibe I got.

    Super disappointed. Not worth the price at all. The explanation provided during the tour is very poor. Once you get to the site the guide just speaks for 5 minutes and shows 2 or 3 pictures (basically what you would get in a 3 minute google search). Then they give you 50 minutes free time. Additionally we found out that the entrance is free on weekends so basically you're just paying for transportation. Lastly, the hour of the tour (3pm) is not good. You don't even get to enjoy a little of the sunset, which is supposed to be one of the main reasons to visit this site. Don't recommend at all.

    You're only paying for the ride. When we got there we realized that the entrance to the ruins was free on the weekends. It is definitely not a guided tour. The explanation and history of the site is very poor. It is barely 5-7 minutes and it's just an overview. Literally nothing that you wouldn't find on a quick Google search. Don't recommend it at all. Also don't recommend the hour of the tour (3 pm). The sun is at its brightest so it's difficult to really enjoy the site and the view.

    The bus picked us up right on time. It was a little over an hour to the temple. The tour guide gave us fun facts the whole way. When we got to the temple she gave us some information on its creation (about 10 mins). After that we only had 40 mins to look at the temple, the view, visit the gift shop and go to the washroom. We left right away and we’re home within an hour. All in all a good trip but not much time. Very windy at the top so watch your hat

    Booked the trip the day before. And it’s confirmed! Wished the trip a bit longer. Just stayed at the temple for one hour and didn’t see the sunset. But the scenery along the coast is beautiful.
