Worth the time to see views along the coast & temple.
Linda_Y, Dec 2023
Very nice private drive from Athens to Poseidons temple on an amazing promontory.We missed the sunset due to weather but had a great lunch overlooking the waves crashing. Our driver did an excellent job circumventing road closures and unexpected protests. We were glad to have included this in our visit.

Poseidon’s Temple
Marsha_E, Nov 2023
Notis was a fabulous guide to Poseidon’s Temple.He is extremely knowledgeable about Greece, past and present! He answered every question we had and we loved our time with him. For lunch he took us to a great restaurant and we had a delicious Greek salad and fish. We highly recommend this tour! We highly recommend Notis!

It was a beautiful drive...
Jane_J, Oct 2023
It was a beautiful drive but much too hard for us to walk up to the Temple. Lunch was very good. However, our guide Michael was very hard for us to understand. He was very attentive but we didn’t catch much of what he was explaining. So all in all it wasn’t worth $333 to take a drive and have some lunch
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. Michael is a very experienced guide who has provided this tour hundreds of times with remarkable reviews. The walking up to the Temple is relatively easy and Michael also helped you to walk up there. Thank you.
This is the tour for you. Thank you George. The best.
Walter_S, Oct 2023
I love when the tour guide shows up on time and George was early and very friendly. Mercedes E Series was a plus. Very safe driver on a pretty seaside drive. He was very knowledgeable and did a fabulous job of recounting the real history of the area. Loved the politics especially. The walk up to the temple was easy and the view from the top was a bonus. He took us to an excellent waterfront place for lunch. There was plenty of great food and the service was fabulous. Dropped us right at the front door of our hotel.

Enjoyable experiwnce
Dawn_B, Oct 2023
Chris arrived to pick us up early and accommodated with our luggage. Showed many things in Athens and brought us to a Greek restaurant , which was very delicious! The gentlemen there treated us very kindly also. Chris answered all our questions and then at the end of the day dropped us off at our next hotel ! Which saves us time and money!

Perfect Way to End Our Cruise
Maria_K, Sep 2023
Very nice tour. We were picked up from Piraeus port after our cruise. Our driver took us to Cape Sounio, let us take our time there and then we had lunch at a local Greek restaurant by the water. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. My husband said that he has never had such fresh calamari in his life that he had at this restaurant and raved about the fish he ate too. We loved it. After our lunch our driver took us to the airport as we were leaving Athens that day. We did pay 90euros extra for airport drop off. In my opinion, well worth it as we had our bags and had a private driver for a day.

Informative and relaxing coastal tour
Justin_J, Aug 2023
This was one of the most pleasant, informative and interesting tours I have ever been on. Kostas answered all of our questions and then some. It was wonderful to have a private Mercedes to drive along the coast and each and every stop was a picturesque representation of beautiful Greek coastal life. Highly recommend!

Wonderful trip, beautiful sunset
HinCheong_L, Jun 2023
Great tour with Pedro, who can give us many insights into the lifestyles of the Greeks. The dinner was also very good, with a few traditional seafood dishes. Given the price of the tour package, we would have expected some expert guide at the Temple of Poseidon.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
We are so grateful for your review. Thanks for sharing your rating with us and the community. Petros is a professional with many years of experience that has provided this tour hundreds of times, but he is not a licensed tour guide. Our product page explicitly states, "Our drivers are not official tour guides, but they are knowledgeable and can provide fascinating commentary in fluent English. Although they will not enter the sites with you, they can answer your questions about the places you visit with this tour.". In addition, you could optionally book a licensed tour guide to accompany you to the sites, but we did not receive such a request. This is also explicitly stated on our product page.
So worth the trip
Aylene_C, Jun 2023
Wonderful driver who let us go at our own pace As you round corner and see Temple on the hill for the fist time it's breathtaking. Getting to see so much of the coastline was wonderful. Great to get out of Athens. And see more of the country.

Mary_T, May 2023
We had a wonderful evening trip! Our driver, Notis, arrived early, was very knowledgeable about Greece and all of its rich history and current day! The local restaurant we ate at was DELICIOUS!! We had so much to choose from, it was hard deciding which foods to eat before we were too full! 😋.
