Stunning sunsets.

Wonderful experience made all the better with a great guide Theodore (Teddy). He kept everyone occupied on the journey with his quizzes and information which helped pass the travel time. He also suggested the place to eat which was fabulous. The location is stunning and everything you could possibly want. Not too crowded and the photo opportunities are great. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful summer excision to Cape Sunio with Sotiris!

I was so happy I booked this tour. Booking it online was very easy and it took me literally two minutes the night before. The guide was a very pleasant man named Sotiris, originally from Crete. He picked me at the hotel at the exact time - I was traveling solo - and in a few moments I found myself in a new air-conditioned mini bus Mercedes in the company of the other tourists from the USA and the UK. This trip is especially great because it includes swimming in the end! The lake Vouglimeni and the Poseidon temple were gorgeous and I took awesome photos! We came back to Athens around 3 PM. Everything went great! I would recommend the guide to tell a bit more about Greece and it’s history, about what we were going to see on the way. Probably, our guide did not have a chance since our group members were talking and having a lot of fun on the way. Thank you, Sotiris!

Small group (only 5 participants). Very confortable mini-van. I was picked-up at the hotel on schedule. Very knowledgable guide. The temple of Poseidon is an amazing place to visit.

Our guide was Teddy. He was friendly and knowledgable. We enjoyed visiting the temple on Cape Sounion at sunset. The temple is impressive and the sea coast there was very picturesque. We also really appreciated getting Teddy's recommendations for where else to go on our trip.

The Cape is beautiful! And our tour guide was friendly and entertaining. But the tour is basically just transport to a photogenic area -- not sure it's worth the cost.

Not value for money

The tour involved picking up from the hotel in the centre of Athens and driving to Sounion with a stop at Lake Vouliagmeni. There was no guiding provided by our guide, during the driving or at the stops. It was just a long drive from Athens to Sounion rather than a "tour". Considering that there isn't any public transportation to take you from Athens to Sounio, if someone's visiting Greece for the first time, I guess it's a good option, but not cheap (£46pp and we were 2 so approx. £92). Alternatively I would recommend to rent a car for a day (around £50 for the day) and drive alone so that gives the flexibility to explore more areas.

This was one of our favorite trips! Teddy was so much fun and informative. We had lots of time at the beach where some people swam, but we decided to get a beer and some seafood and watch the boats. The view at the temple was unbelievable. Honestly you have to go if you have the chance
