Morning Athens Sightseeing Tour:
 Begin your morning Athens sightseeing tour with a pickup from your Athens hotel, or alternatively, at a meeting point in central Athens.

Relax into your air-conditioned coach and drive to the Acropolis, the ancient citadel of Athens perched high above the city on a rocky outcrop. Head through the gates with your guide, and stroll around the top Acropolis attractions, including the Temple of Athena Nike, Propylea, Erechtheion, and the spectacular Parthenon.

Having explored these classical masterpieces, continue to the Panathenaic Stadium, the arena that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Snap photos of the all-marble stadium and then drive to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Greek Parliament House in Syntagma Square.

Admire the handsome government buildings around the square, and then head along Panepistimiou Street, one of Athens’ main avenues. See St. Dionysius Cathedral with its arcaded portico, and pass the elegant buildings of the University of Athens, National Library, and Academy of Athens.

Lastly, pay a visit to the New Acropolis Museum, the ultra-modern museum that houses many of the classical statues, friezes, and artifacts recovered from the Acropolis. After viewing the highlights here, conclude your sightseeing tour, and enjoy free time to relax or have lunch (own expense) at a local taverna before your afternoon tour.


Afternoon Cape Sounion Trip:
 Reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you journey south to Cape Sounion. As you travel, admire the beautiful beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear tales of the Cape and its showpiece: the glimmering white Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, leave your coach and walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the awesome sea views and if it’s clear weather, gaze out over the island of Kea in the distance.
 Admire the Doric columns of the ancient temple and hear about the Greek myths that surround the building. Then, see the inscription made on one of the columns by the English poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s.

 Afterward, travel back to Athens where your tour ends at your hotel or the original start point.

CHAT Tours was the tour group. Weather for great for excursion both am and pm. The guide for the AM was very knowledgeable and shared great information regarding history, got us to areas when people volume low. Advised us on best areas at sites to do pictures. Excellent guide for the Archeological Museum. Gave very good instructions for meeting back at bus. Afternoon in Sounion was picturesque. Beautiful seaside views from Athens to Sounion and back. The afternoon guide provided good info & communicated meeting places.

Good tour of the Acropolis & the surrounding area. It can get very crowded with other tourists at times. The Sounion trip is not worth the 2 hour roundtrip travel.

Our guide was horrible! She was unorganized & unclear with directions. She did not meet group where she had specified. Other guests just happened to run in to her and were told that the bus was not where she said it would be. We were left behind and had to meet up with the group at the museum. We lost 1 1/2 hours of the tour waiting for her at the museum. She did not use her flag (for tracking her through the crowds) and did not speak very loud, making it difficult to hear anything that she said. The Afternoon Half-Day Cape Sounion Trip was amazing! Great guide with lots of knowledge. He was organized, clear, animated and very interesting!

This tour is a must if you want to have a well-informed professional guide to take you to the Acropolis and the most important museums . However, the trip to Cape Sounion was wonderful. Seeing the Temple of Poseidon was thrilling, but the seashore was spectacular. Beautiful countryside,and magnificent seascapes. The trip was excellent value.

We enjoyed our tours. We were on the "City Sightseeing Tour" and the "Half-Day Cape Sunion Trip" It was thorough and informative. The guides on both tours were very knowledgeable about the sites and easy to understand. While traveling on the bus to Cape Sunion, the Tour Guide pointed out several sights & interesting facts along the way. I would recommend this to anyone touring Athens..

Athens city tour Good. Sounion Not So Good.

On this tour you will first board a nice bus and head off to the Acropolis where you will disembark and climb up to the Acropolis. This is fantastic. Afterwards you will board the bus and be driven around Athens to pass/stop by some of the top sites (e.g. Olympic stadium). This first part of the tour concludes roughly 3-4 hours later and you will have a break to eat on your own (about 1.5 hours) before boarding another bus to head to Sounion. The drive to Sounion takes approx 2 hours before you arrive. While the views are nice along the coast and in Sounion, the reality is that you spend about an hour viewing one temple and then drive back to Athens for anther 1.5 to 2 hours. If I had to do this tour over again, I would skip the Sounion tour and focus only on Athens. Also, a word of advice, if you decide to leave your tour guide when viewing the Athens museum in the morning tour, get your entrance ticket from your tour guide so that you can visit the underground ruins. We left on our own in the museum and attempted to get into the ruins but you had to have your entrance ticket which we were not given by our tour guide when I let our tour guide know that we decided to tour the museum on our own. So, we missed out on the ruins because we could not find out tour guide. Frustrating. :-(

Hello from Chat Tours, Thank you for your comments. We are glad to learn that you enjoyed the guided tour of Athens . As far as the afternoon tour to Cape Sounion is concerned , we would like to note that this is a leisure trip that includes a pleasant drive along the coastline of Athenian Riviera and a visit of the archaeological site of the Temple of Poseidon. This schedule is carefully written at the description of our product and at your prepaid vouchers . In other words , when you chose this special offer package you have been informed about the itinerary of the second part, too. In addition , we have set specific dates for our visits at the New Acropolis Museum . All the groups take group tickets for their visit in order not to spend time waiting at the long lines . The guide of the group holds the group ticket . If somebody is interested in visiting on his own the underground ruins , he will need to let the guide know about that . Guide will gather all the guests of the same interest and he will give you the ticket at the end of the guided tour inside the museum . In this way , everybody interested in visiting them would have access . It is very important to let your guide know about that as we have also explained you through our phone conversation . We hope to see you again in Athens ! Always at your disposal, Angelina Skyla.

City tour was waste of a lot of time. L2 hours til got into the Parthenon then only 40 mins inside. 30 mins in Acropolis Museum. Not guides fault but overpromise and underdelivered.Peak season but no benefit to go on tour no skip the line!! Cape Sounian really worthwhile lovely coastal drive an hour at the site. . Great guide

Hello from Chat Tours, Thank you for your review. We would like to clarify some points of your review. First and foremost,the bus has GPS system and we can always prove time spent for the sightseeing and the stops at the sites. Secondly, we have to predict the time spent due to traffic and the thousands of visitors at the sites, too. The Athens Sightseein Tour is a 5-hour tour with one and half hour at the Acropolis , one and a half hour at the New Acropolis Museum, short stop for photos and information at the Olympic Stadium and sightseeing tour of the city. Last but not least , we are glad to learn that you were satisfied by our guides for both of your tours. Always at your disposal, Angelina Skyla.
