Would love if this tour left earlier stopped at springs for 2 hours, trip itself was really good, enjoyed Swimming in the sea prior to visiting Posiedon Temple which was stunning at sunset, had a Glass of wine at Bar prior to pick up. Nice pleasant afternoon/evening after 3 days intense classics tours.

It was a well organised half-day trip, it wasn't the first time for us to visit Cape Sounion but watching the sunset there was something special. We found also good that we had 2 stops before we went to Cape Sounion, especially swimming at the bottom of Cape Sounion was really nice.

I had an unbelievably amazing time and experience. Christos was an amazing guide full of information, good humour and advice on things to do around Athens. The view from Sounion and the stops we took were incredible and almost unrealistic. I can say I will fully recommend this tour to family and friends in the future.
