Full description
Enjoy a private 4 hour excursion to the southernmost point of Athens and visit the 5th-century Temple of Poseidon. On this tour that’s priced for up to 4 persons you’ll pass beautiful suburbs such as Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza, on the Athenian Riviera.

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
