Relaxed and very well narrated excursion with a beautiful sunset!

Our guide, Gari, provided us with a well-informed and entertaining narrative throughout the trip. We arrived at our destination with plenty of time to explore and relax before entering the temple site to witness a gorgeous sunset! The return trip offered more interesting stories about Sounion, Athens and Greece in general. We were delayed a bit by bad traffic upon our return, and the Wi-Fi on the bus was rather weak, making it difficult to establish a steady connection. I would also recommend taking the coastal route there and the more inland route back to allow for better views of the coastline. Overall, this was well worth the price and my time.

Poseidon’s Temple fascinating, landscape exceptional; our guide ok

While the trip was worthwhile, our guide did not really add much. While he spoke English, his explanations left much to be desired. He added a dinner stop on the way home that was not mentioned in the information about the trip (we paid of course). While our food was pretty good, the stop created tension between those who wanted to stop to eat & those who had previously scheduled plans in Athens. Additionally the driver/guide did not know to handle the situation. I imagine with a different guide, the excursion would be wonderful.

Cape Sounion: Sunset Tour from Athens Reviewed by

Half day is perfect, Cape Sounion not really necessary

Drive through Athens with stadium, visiting Acropolis and museum and the lunch are very nice experience and I would recommend it. An hour and half drive to Cape Sounion and back just to see one more temple (after Parthenon, it is not that fascinating) I do not see as the time being well spent. And you could save 49 euro if you skip this activity. In my opinion, there is no value for money in visiting Cape Sounion.

Beautiful location, lovely & accomadating tour guide (Marina)!

Big thanks to our awesome Tourguide - we learned a lot & had fun while doing so. Marina was even so Kind to wait for a family that was running late for the trip! The bus driver also did an amazing job on the windy roads! Also the breathtaking view at cape Sounuion could not have been better - all in all a beautiful experience which I would recommend to anyone visiting Greece! .

convenient way to reach the cape and temple with lots of good info

After failing at renting a motorcycle, I begrudgingly booked this tour and it was totally worth it! It was relaxing not having to drive, and Katarina was full of fun fact from the city (Fix beer....) to the temple. I personally felt we had enough time to take in the sights and then got to relax again on the way back. All around good afternoon!
