Know More about this tour

Accompanied by your considerate & knowledgeable English speaking tour driver, depart from your hotel or cruise ship & begin your journey. Exclusive to your group alone, leave the city behind for an hour of beautiful coastal scenery past some of Athens most prestigious districts. Finally we leave the last settlements behind as our road skirts the beautiful cliff line high above the sea until we see on the farthest point of the Attica peninsula the sight of one of the ancient worlds most important and impressive sites, the Temple of poseidon.

Perched on the shear cliff edge with vast open views, the temple forms a historical, cultural and awe-inspiring experience. Take the time you need inside the site to enjoy the magnificent sea views extending to the islands of Kea and the Peloponnese on a clear day and a stop at a nearby picture postcard beach for lunch (in season) making this a wonderful half day trip from Athens for all.

    We had a fantastic tour of Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. Our guide/driver, Apostolis (Tolis), was fantastic and really made it a memorable trip for our family. We were worried about the drive given we have young children but it was a comfortable trip and we were given as much time as we needed at the sites. Would definitely recommend!

    We had a great trip to Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon. We had just arrived in Athens and arranged for Tolis to pick us up and take us directly their. It was a great trip and wonderful way to begin our Greek holiday. Tolis recommended a wonderful seaside restaurant for lunch run by a lovely family. There we were, having lunch on the sea with the view of the Temple of Poseidon behind us. Truly a great day! Thank you, Tolis!!

    Tour operator was flexible and accommodating when I wanted to add some friends to the car and add a second pick up spot. Driver was knowledgeable and friendly. Temple of Poseidon is a must see and I am very glad we did it comfortably in a private car on our own schedule. Great tour, I would recommend to anyone

    Our guide Demetrius was very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited the Temple of Poseidon first we got there before it was open and they opened early for us. It was a beautiful spot and it was amazing to be there by ourselves. We added on a stop to an olive grove for a tasting and tour of the farm. It was a really nice day, I would highly recommend.

    Our group of 6 spent a delightful day with Valerius, enjoying the drive along the coast and visiting the fantastic ruins of the Temple of Poseidon. We went in the morning, so that we had the temple nearly to ourselves without all the tour buses. Valerius was very informative and delightful company, and on our way back suggested a great restaurant in the Pireus area by the water that turned out to be our gest meal in Greece. I highly recommend this tour.

    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.
