Athens: City Highlights & Cape Sounio Private Combo Tour

7. Athens: City Highlights & Cape Sounio Private Combo Tour

This tour of Athens takes us to the most famous sites of the city, both ancient and modern. Undoubtedly the most famous landmark of Athens is the Parthenon. It is the ancient temple which was dedicated to Athena, the goddess that Athens got its name from. It is on top of the Acropolis Hill, which is visible from many parts of Athens, and around it there is the historical centre. Moving away a little bit from the area just around the Acropolis, we will see the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament. These guards, known as Evzones, are the elite force of the Greek Army and until the Second World War they were known for their bravery and honor. The costume they wear was introduced by King Otto of Greece, inspired by the traditional clothes of the mountain warriors and bandits who formed the resistance to the Ottoman Empire. We will also see the stadium where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896. We will visit the Temple of Olympian Zeus, with only a few of its original 104 columns standing, and the monument known as the arch of Hadrian, a Roman structure dedicated to Theseus and Hadrian as the founders of Athens. Then travel along the coast, to the southernmost tip of the peninsula of Attica, Cape Sounion. A getaway that is very close to Athens and it is famous for its beaches, fish restaurants and the striking ruins of the Temple of Poseidon. Set high on the promontory, the temple forms part of a triangle of ancient sites, including the Acropolis and the Temple of Aphaea on Aegina. They are all equal distances from each other as the crow flies, and on a clear day maybe you will be able to see the other two monuments. Sounio is also where Aegeus tragically fell from the cliffs when he saw the black sails that his son Theseus had forgotten to change and thought that he was dead. The Aegean sea was thus named after him. It is a beautiful place to watch the sunset, the white marble columns framed by the sky and the lovely blue sea!

Aegina Island & Temple of Athina Aphaia Private Day Tour

9. Aegina Island & Temple of Athina Aphaia Private Day Tour

If you are in Athens, traveling to Aegina (Aigina) island is one of the best island day getaways but also a real Greek experience. A perfect PRIVATE day trip to the pristine beaches of an authentic destination without the “hordes of tourists” but with small-scale beauty and simplicity. Looking for an authentic experience? The boat trip, the island feeling, the food & drink, the culture & history? It is all there! We start with a hotel pick-up and then to the port of Piraeus for a great boat ride enjoying the views from the ferry’s decks or the air-conditioned sitting areas for 1 h and 10 minutes. Just enough time to breathe the sea air but not too much to make you feel tired or bored! The tour is operated with our private cars for your transfer from Athens to the port and then for exploring the island, but we use the commercial ferry boat to travel to the island. We do not provide a private yacht! Aegina island is a pine green island that you’ll explore privately with your tour leader and full flexibility. A beautiful, relaxing island in the Saronic Gulf facing Athens with small fishing villages, and a “swimming pool-like” water. We’ll visit the island’s famous Saint Nectarios monastery, explore the Perdika fishing village, and enjoy the Temple of Athena Aphaia with its amazing views. Finally, your tour leader will recommend the best location for an authentic lunch right next to the water before returning to the return boat trip. Depending on the time of the year, you could enjoy an undistracted sunset while cruising back to Athens.

It was a complete treat to travel with Takis, our friendly driver, out from Athens to Thermopylae and on to Delphi, coming home via Arachova. This was a most relaxed way to experience these rich archeological sites with no rush and lots of much appreciated local advice and information along the way – including a delicious lunch recommendation with a spectacular view in Delphi itself. It was great to experience the juxtaposition of the sparse site of the Battle of Thermopylae with the vast number of ruins on the site at Delphi, and the drive out from Athens, between all the sites, and back into Athens was beautiful to experience as a passenger. The car was comfortable and the cold water was much appreciated. The drive through the UNESCO listed olive groves that surround Delphi as an unexpected highlight as well. Very grateful we were able to do this: it was a day to remember.

This trip is not to be missed! We enjoyed the ride to Delphi which passed by a very beautiful town. At Delphi, we witnessed a magnificent view of the entire place and a gorgeous mountain view. We enjoyed this visit way more than Acropolis. Many thanks to our driver guide, George who picked us up on time, provided us sufficient time for toilet breaks and recommended a nice family restaurant where we enjoyed the most delicious Greek meal.

Dimitri is an awesome guide. He made sure the tour was thorough but enjoyable! He helped us see so many great sites and was flexible so we got to spend more time the ones we enjoyed the most. I highly recommend his tour and can’t wait to visit Greece again!

A very interesting excursion with a friendly driver who also offered photo opportunities. Suggestion for improvement: More information about Thermopylae and Delphi could be provided before or at the beginning of the tour.

Great day, staff were really friendly & helpful, will def do again on next trip to Athens
