Our tour guide did her...

Our tour guide did her best to share as much interesting information as possible about the various sites we passed by on our way to the Temple lf Poseidon and back. In the end, though, we felt like the departure back to Athens was unnecessarely rushed. We would have loved some 15 extra minutes to enjoy a coffee at the nearby bar, especially since in the end we arrived back to Athens more than an hour early.

Good tour of history

The Tour starts with a bus drive to the cape. While on the drive various buildings, and areas are pointed out as you drive by. Once at the cape the view is great and the tour guide provides an entertaining presentation of the history of the temple and area. Everyone is given time after the tour to wander the area to take pictures and admire the view. On the way back to Athens the bus driver will drop clients off at Plaka, or others areas that are on the way back to the start point; this was a great addition. Aside from the temple and the great view there is little else to see. Having a guide to explain the history added to the trip otherwise you are just standing looking at some pillars.

Good place, the tour could be a bit better

The place itself is very nice. And so was the drive to the temple. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Just one suggestion, it would be better if the tour could wait at the cape to watch the sunset. So they should decide to pickup/tour time accordingly. We left an hour before the sunset time and could not enjoy it. Also it would be great if the tour bus could stop somewhere along the road for a 10min photo stop of the cape and temple (there are designated places I saw along the road where it was possible to stop vehicles.). We missed 2 great photo opportunities due to this.

Great trip! Vicki filled the trip there with Greek history so we understood the context behind the temple when we arrived. The drive took about 90 mins each way and there's nothing to break it up except amazing sea views so if you struggle to sit still for 90 mins this might not be for you. But the end is worth it. The temple and surrounds are spectacular. If you want to see sunset at the temple, choose a tour which is specifically timed for sunset because the standard afternoon tours leave a little too early.

Another great trip with great guide. Comfortable bus, beautiful views and informative guide. Traffic in Athens sucked but it's a big city with a visiting dignitary so delays were expected.

Get out of the city!

We enjoyed the drive down the coast, by the water, to get to Cape Sounion. Once there, there really isn't much to see, just the one temple. My biggest concern is that we were told by Viator that we would be picked up at our hotel (even called to confirm this). Well, a guy shows up and has us follow him, on foot, a half mile away to where the bus was. People that are not mobile need to take this into consideration and make sure the bus will pick them up.
