Enjoy a whistlestop tour of the city’s major landmarks, including the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum, before heading out to Cape Sounion to visit the Temple of Poseidon, perched on a cliff at the southernmost point of Attica.
  • Don’t just see the Acropolis: with this tour, you can see it all!

Panos is the best tour guide!
Aerial_T, Nov 2022
Even in our short amount of time in Athens we were able to see and learn so much! Our tour guide Panos was amazing and super funny! He was a great driver and we got to see everything we were hoping to see because of him. Stop right here, you’ve found your perfect tour. The private option is the best because you can see as much or as little as you’d like, it’s your pace. He also recommended a super delicious restaurant for us to try. I had an amazing time because of Panos!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
We are so grateful for your 5-star review. Thanks for sharing your rating with us and the community. Greetings from Panos.
Very nice day

Takis was a wonderful guide with helpful information. Car was comfortable. Trip was very flexible. Go to the Acropolis first to avoid crowds. Buy entry tickets on line before you go.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. Greetings from Takis. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Our driver was the Best. Because of the marathon that day in Athens, some roads were restricted, but our driver took us to all the "Must see" places in an itinerary that saved wait time at the venues. Cape Sounio was an added bonus.
Response from Host, Jan 2020
Thank you very much for your positive review! Hope to see you soon again!
