Perfect! Very nice driver who first showed us some highlights in Athens and stopped there to take pictures. Then towards Cape Sounion with an explanation of various locations etc. At Cape Sounion had an explanation about the origin/history. Very worthwhile: all the time and all cooperation

Informative. Historical. With a Courteous and Attentive Guide.

Taxi Driver was affable but I guess we expected a real tour

Temple of Poseidon in the cold June rain Pros no one else was there and Poseidon probably loved the weather -- grandkids loved having the site to themselves Cons Tour of the resort area along the water outside of Athens was compromised by flooded roads and gray weather-- nothing more depressing than a seaside resort on a rainy cold day This is really a taxi trip out to The temple of Poseidon and not a true tour. Mercedes e type is uncomfortable for 4 passengers plus driver even if 2 are children
