Know More about this tour

Our tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Rivera. During this relaxing ride youll enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs, including Hellinikon Olympic complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza.

Arriving at the Cape Sounion, you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of poseidon with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important for ancient Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that.

After visiting the Temple, filled from the beauty, the history and the culture of this site we will wait to admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine. And when the sun begins to slowly touch the sea it is the perfect moment for a sparkling glass of wine, before returning back to your Hotel.

    Easy way to see the sunset and poseidons temple. Also some interesting information and related mythology on the bus ride and subsequent tour.

    While I'd recommend going on a Sunset Tour to Cape Sounion to see the spectacular sight yourself, I wouldn't rush out and recommend KeyTours as the best operator to see it with. Staff in the office were very rude and when the coach was late didn't like us asking for updates. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and I found him fascinating but he narrated pretty much non stop for the entire journey which some of our group found boring. We got to the site and the tour there was pretty rushed and we didn't get the headsets promised at booking so it was hard to hear over the wind. I'd recommend going but maybe hire a car instead of KeyTours.

    Très belle expérience, merci à notre Guide qui nous a donné un maximum d'information sur l'histoire d'Athènes et de l'acropole

    The tour and tour leader , Anna, were great. The bus was an hour late picking us up with no notification. They did respond to an email I sent but simply said they would be there in 10 minutes. For an hour delay, I would think they would contact me - they had the emails. No excuse

    This is basically a coach trip to Cape Sounion and back. Long journey there as the coach stopped for many pick-ups and then a 15 minute wait for the tour guide to arrive. She talked the entire 2 hour journey, which was painful. She knew her stuff but it was very dull and just went on and on. The sunset at the temple is stunning - top tip is to grab your pix just after everyone leaves. Bring your own drinks as the queue for the bar (and the loo) is long. Well worth the trip to see the cape and the sunset but I wish we'd just hired a car for the day.

    This was the perfect way to end our vacation. I did not know about if before we came to Athens but started searching for tours and this one always came up. It was worth the drive and the sunset was amazing.

  • 22-Oct-2022

    Sunset was wonderful. Gave a 3 because the bus pickup was very bad. They sent us to the wrong location for pickup and we had to scramble at our expense to get to the revised location.

    The drive and the sunset were beautiful! It was worth the time and money. The guide was good too!!!!

  • 16-Oct-2022

    Great passionate guide! And extremely knowledgable. You should not ask 100 words for This, as it discourage you complete the review and sometime few words are enough!

    We had a very windy and cloudy afternoon at Cap Sounion in the middle of October but were donated an extraordinary mixture of the lights and shadows. Our guide, Lisa, did a very good job in telling us a lot about the historical aspects of Cape Sounion and the Poseidon Temple. One piece of advice: in this tour, please be prepared for last minute changes in the starting time of the tour due to changes in the sunset time, so please watch your e-mails, SMS messages and other communications from your tour operator frequently on the day of the tour.
