    Must do! Theo, the guide tour, built a fantastic atmosphere with all the Mythological references (OMG very knowledgeable not only of Mythology but of history and geography); he seasoned all his interesting stories with proper and funny comments. He also made the effort to have everyone in the tour to get to know each other and participate in the conversation. The Trip allows to get a glimpse of a nice area of the coast and the Cyclades islands. The temple is absolutely worthwhile visiting and the sunset, today, was spectacular. Cherry on top: with a full moon illuminating the sky, the trip back was magical. A kind salutation to the driver who managed to cruise the traffic as if gliding.

    Iliana and Alex were great! Alex was a friendly, helpful and safe driver. Iliana was full interesting information and paced the discussion well, not filling every second with information but telling the historical and mythical stories in a very engaging way so that you didn’t notice how long the car ride was. The temple was fascinating on its own, but the views at sunset really made the tour worthwhile.

    Liked the tour. Theodore was very informative and entertaining. Picked us up on time. Saw the Temple. Had lunch. Then dropped us off. Traffic was bad on the way back.

    Geri the tourleader was awesome. She filled the journey with lots of myth and history about Greece and Gods. The trip was magical and the sundowner at temple of poseidon worth it!

    Beautiful temple and fabulous views- Theo and Alex were a great guide and driver who made everyone welcome and were very well organised!

    Friendly bus tour to Cape Sounio to see the sunset. The concept is simple; you will be collected from your hotel and driven to the Cape. There are no extras so bring drinks and snacks if you need them. There is a stop mid way either at Lake Vougliameni or Sounio Beach depending on the time of year and weather. What makes this enjoyable is the great tour guide who shares some Greek mythology and stories of Greek history. The drive was fun and relaxed and we enjoyed the atmosphere very much. Our guide was Gari and she was absolutely marvellous! The cape is beautiful and watching the sunset over the Temple of Poseidon is magical. Definitely worth a trip from Athens as it is stunning.
