Full description
Your first stop is at the Acropolis of Athens. The city’s rich history is documented on every step of the Acropolis of Athens, on every piece of marble gracing the Parthenon. You will have some time to explore the Acropolis Museum. Then, head to the Hellenic Parliament and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Take a quick stop for a photo before continuing on to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, a former colossal temple at the center of Athens. You will also stop at the Panathenaic Stadium and then Mount Lycabettus, to take a look at the city from above. You will then set off for the Archaeological Site of Sounion. Visit the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio - an example of classical architecture of the 5th Century B.C. Upon your return to the city of Athens, you will stop at an idyllic place: Vouliagmeni Lake, in the heart of the Athenian Riviera.

Panos was amazing. He was friendly and a wealth of knowledge. He gave us suggestions on where to go and the timing so we can make it back on our ship on time. Panos worked with us as well on what we want to see. Our group of six had a great time. Highly recommended.

Pick up was on time. Friendly and accommodating driver. Was helpful that we did not need to navigate anywhere, especially with the Athens traffic! Vasilis was helpful & easy going. I would say the museum we could have skipped... they wouldn't let you take pictures of anything after you got just the stairs and just turned the corner. For us it wasn't worth the 10 euros each. For having a limited time in Athens it was the way to go for us to see the highlights efficiently.

This was a great way for us to see many of the sites we wanted to see, plus some that we wouldn’t have known existed. We didn’t have a professional guide, but our driver Dimitri was excellent and helped us enjoy our stops even more. Of all the tours I’ve done on this trip, this was my favourite by far! Thanks Dimitri & team!
