Wonderful trip

It was exciting to see Poseidon’s temple emerge over the cliffs overlooking the sea! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and gave us wonderful background information! The drive to the temple was along the coastline which was stunning as well! Would definitely recommend…

We really enjoyed this experience. Tom was great! The vehicle was clean, new and well kept. We spent about an hour at the temple, and Tom made a few stops for us to take pictures. It's a beautiful place and worth the drive!

Best tour in Athens.

Tom was the BEST. We stopped and he bought us a coffee. He gave us a beautiful tour along the coast. We stopped at the warm Springs for a picture and a bathroom break. When we arrived at Poseidon‘s Temple he gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. Then traveling back a different way we stopped at an authentic Greek tavern for a fabulous lunch. I would highly recommend this trip it’s one of the best we have had in Greece

The best way to explore Athens and surroundings
Daniel_H
, Oct 2021
We didn’t have a tour, but just private transfer which was very convenient. We were not limited in time and didn’t feel rushed. After Temple of Poseidon we asked for a local restaurant for dinner and we’re taken to a beautiful small family place on a water just in time for sunset. We liked our transfer so much, that we ended up using them 4 more times. Prices are very reasonable, plus water and wi-fi. It’s probably the best way to explore Athens.

Personable Greek Experience!

Gregorios was our guide. He made the 4 hour trip so interesting, giving us facts about Greek life and culture during our drive. He was an excellent driver, and concerned with our comfort. He was very professional yet extremely personable. He made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy the sites and not feel hurried along. We would highly recommend Gregory and Viator for a great Greek experience.

You're in charge on this private tour

First: a word about Greece. The landscapes are stunningly beautiful: coastlines, mountains, blue water. You will walk among 2,500-year-old archaeological sites. The food is every bit as good as you imagine it will be. But the best part of Greece is its people. I had not one bad interaction with a local Greek; they were consistently gracious, friendly, helpful. This country deserves to be on your bucket list. Greece has something like 38 million visitors (in a country with 11 million residents) in 2019. That number is less than half right now as they recover from the pandemic. Now is the time to go to Greece! Bring your swimsuit, appetite, and camera. It’s the trip of a lifetime. We booked a private tour through Viator to kill time between disembarkation from the NCL Jade and check-in at the Electra Palace Athens. Driver showed up at exactly 10am to meet us in the hotel lobby. His name was Petros. His first words were, “Sir, you have as much time today as you want, whatever you want to see, just say so, no rush.” This was welcome news as large tours sometimes rush you through when you’d like to slow down and take in the moment. The standard private tour minibus in Greece is a 7-9 passenger Mercedes van, very comfortable. Driver acted as a tour guide. The drive down to Sounio was stunning. Beautiful Aegean Sea coastline, beaches, mountains and islands. Temple of Poseidon was empty when we arrived because it was a holiday. You will buy your tickets (ten Euros each) at the temple. The temple is an impressive structure. You’ll also have time explore the cape and take in 360 degree views of the blue Aegean Sea. Petros took us to a small restaurant on the water. We were literally sitting over the clear blue water, nothing like this in the U.S. The food was excellent. This was a local place, no tourists. The owner came out after our feast to ensure we enjoyed the meal. Plenty of gelato shops in the area. Petros showed us around the Plaka before droppings us off at the hotel. I strongly recommend this tour!

Sounion at Sunset

Panos was our driver last night on our trip to Sounion. My wife loved that he was very safe and she was at ease despite the sometimes windy roads. We had wonderful views and wonderful pictures. Panos stopped for us to get a quick bite at a place he recommended on way back to hotel. We had a great time. I would recommend.

Our driver George made a few “pit” stops along the way that enhanced the trip. The coastline road down to Cape Sounio is truly picturesque and beyond description here. Perfect half day tour which will meet your expectationss.
