Sunset on Cape Sounion
Patrick_S, Apr 2024
The sunset at Cape Sounion did not disappoint. Our guide was prompt and friendly, but spoke quietly so it was hard to hear all of his information. Be prepared for large portions of appetizers and salad. Save room for the fresh fish!
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Hi, thank you for taking the time to write this review. As you were 8 people the van was full and the people at the back is difficult to listen when the driver talks. It would be very helpful for the driver also , as he doesn’t want to speak loud, as this might irritate some passengers, to actually tell him to speak louder. Well noted and always at your disposal.
Great plan
Xavier_G, Apr 2024
Great experience. A bit pricey, but the comfort of going to the place on your own, with a private car for you and your family, with the dinner included, I think is a fair deal.

Beautiful scenic drive!
Natasha_G, Apr 2024
Ioannis was a great tour guide and this tour gives a different perspective of Athens . Scenic seaside drive showing multiple beaches, restaurants and recreational areas. Sunset at the temple was spectacular, especially for those who are unable to experience the Greek islands.. Dinner was authentic Greek cuisine and delicious. I highly recommend this tour to complement touring Athens city Centre

Very good experience. Our driver George picked us up early at our hotel so we had extra time to enjoy the sunset before going to dinner. Highly recommend!

No Sunset at Cape Sounion
Kimberly_G, Nov 2023
The trip was a LONG drive from Athens, longer than we expected. When we arrived at Cape Sounion, clouds settled in and we had no sunset to view. Not the fault of the tour, for sure, but it was disappointing because there really wasn't much to see if there was not a sunset. The included dinner was great, however. The location of the dinner was perfect and the dinner was enjoyable.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We always have on the description of all our tours the duration of each tour and time needed for each location. It is very unfair to our company to put 3 out of 5 even though you liked the tour, because of the weather. Unfortunately , we cannot control the weather. Moreover, if from your end, you thought that the weather was not going to be good, you could always cancel up to 24 hours before tour date as we give this option. Last but not least, Temple of Poseidon is a popular place not only for the sunset but for the history of the place, that goes long back to 444 B.C.
Great introduction to...

Best Sunset Tour!!
debraboland, Oct 2023
The entire tour was well worth doing. Harry was at our hotel on time and took us on an amazing tour. Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon was worth the trip and the sunset was breathtaking. Harry made sure that he told us all about Athens during the drive and he chose an excellent restaurant for us to dine. The whole experience was excellent from start to finish.

Beautiful sunset!!
Susan_H, Oct 2023
This was a great evening. George picked us up at our hotel and provided tons of interesting facts about the area as we drove to Cape Sunio and the Temple of Poseidon. The dinner at the seaside tavern was nice but the sunset - wow!! I think this might be the loveliest sunset I have ever seen! We loved the tour & George was great but just be aware - it is about 1.5 hours out to the Cape.

Excellent tour!
elizabeth_o, Oct 2023
George was excellent! He picked us up at our hotel and told us about Athens history as we made our way to Cape Sounion. The sunset was spectacular. Dinner at the fish tavern was delicious with a beautiful view. It was the perfect way to end our Athens adventure. The quick stop for ice cream topped off our evening and then drop off back at our hotel. It was wonderful to get out of the city and experience the coastline. Excellent tour!

Poorly executed excursion
Terry_L, Oct 2023
Our driver Socrates was great, but we were literally running from the van to the site to catch the last bit of sunset. We pretty much missed the whole point of the experience because we didn’t get picked up in time. Also, the restaurant was subpar at best. Seated far away from the water and the food was the worst meal of any out of our 12 day stay in Greece. Very disappointed in this excursion given the outrageous price we paid.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Dear Terry, thank you for taking the time to write this review. It is nice that our driver was great . You started from Athens at 17:00 and the sunset was at 19:00. We need 1:20 to reach the Temple. You had 40 minutes give and take for the sunset. it is not recommended to start even earlier as there are no places to sit at the Temple and elderly people especially will have a dificcult time to stay that long time there. The best point of the sunset is 10 minutes before sunset so you did not lose it. About the restaurant , this is a restaurant that is very popular for Athenians doing the Athenian Riviera drive, with superb views to the Temple. Probably at the time that you visited maybe there was wind so you had to sit at a more protected part of the restaurant and not directly at the sea and the wind. Also Socrates, gave plenty of time to enjoy and the drop off was 1:30 minutes after the initial offered total time. We never charged the extra time and we never made you feel rushed , thus, the tour was executed in a smooth way so that you could enjoy the most. Thank you very much for your comments and we will try to improve every aspect of the tour. Thank you!
Great overall experience. Great driver.

Great Education on the Temple and Dinner with a great view.
Christopher_L, Oct 2023
Our tour guide Melina was the best. She gave us detailed information too and from the Temple. We then had a great dinner with a view of the temple and sunset. Great food, great time. You have to do this tour and ask for Melina.

Beautiful sunset at Temple of Poseidon
Joanne_M, Sep 2023
Trip to cape Sounion was lovely, nice extra stop at Lake Vouliagmeni. Driver Giorgios was polite and an excellent safe driver, he shared some local knowledge along the way. Temple of Poseidon was absolutely beautiful. The only negative we have is the restaurant was just average. We had grilled Seabream which was served whole, hated eating between the bones, but fish was good, and grilled Squid, should have got the fried. It was the weakest Greek Salad we have had during our stay. Overall though a lovely evening.
