    Beautiful trip two and from as well as at the sight. guide was knowledgeable, informative, and accommodated us with adequate time to explore on our own. I would rate the Accropplis and museum and Delphi the higher priority to visit but would not have wanted to miss this trip as third priority!

    This was a nice tour. On the way to and from Cape Sounion, our tour guide told us a bit about Greek history in general, as well as interesting things we passed. At the temple, she told us the history and myths surrounding it, and then we had 20ish minutes to take pictures and visit the shop/ cafe. Definitely not my favorite tour from the trip, but also not a waste of time.

    The trip to Cape Sounion was the best part of my trip to Greece. The views are great..but windy, so pack accordingly. Our tour guide, Mina, was the best. She spoke clearly and was very entertaining, as well as, taught at a level that most people would enjoy. Ask for Mina. The large bus was clean but basic.

    You learn a lot about Athens on this tour. The bus ride is kind of long, but the views are nice. The temple itself is nice and as the sung begins to set it is beautiful. I liked our tour guide, but the speaker on the bus was terrible and honestly our ears hurt by they end.

    The sea around this cape is stunningly beautiful, but there is very little to see of the ruins of this temple.

    We were picked up from the Hilton an hour and half prior to the starting of the tour. The person in charge of organizing the pickups was very rude when I asked would we have a hour and half ride in Athens after completion of the tour. However, the tour guide was exceptionally good, well informed, perfect English and easily answered any questions regarding Cape Sounion. Sounion is a must see area in Greece. The bus ride down the coast was also very enjoyable. Tour organizer a 2 and tour guide a 5.

    Great trip along the beautiful blue Aegean coastline. Poseidon's Temple is amazing and we got there right at sunset for some great pics. The only thing I'd change or add is for the bus to stop somewhere for 20min or so for us to grab something to drink and/or snacks. The coffee shop located at the temple is limited and busy.

    Well-organized, brief trip with very knowledgeable guide. Cape Sounion is absolutely stunning and on the way from and to Athens we enjoyed beautiful views of the coast and the sunset. Highly recommended!
