A half day afternoon trip from Athens full of images and breathtaking views. Begin your Sounio tour with a wonderful drive  along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada,Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) and idyllic beaches. As you approach Cape Sounion, one of Greece’s most photographed monuments, it rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. At  Cape Sounio where you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands).The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea.

Land masses to the west stand out in sharp profile: the island of Aegina backed by the mountains of the Peloponnese. The beauty of the surviving Doric columns has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who carved his name on one of the columns. This half day excursion is a great option if you want to discover Greece beyond Athens, enjoy stunning views and visit world famous Greek ruins..

I took the 4 hour Poseidon tour and I wasn't disappointed. About 70% of the trip there is along the coastline so you get many great views of the sea. Our guide Demetrios was excellent, along the way he told about the districts we were driving through and their history. But also many stories about the archeological factors of the site we were going to visit as well as the myths behind it. Highly recommend it

Awesome trip to the Poseidon temple which was it worth although the +1 hour bus trip. An excellent guide from Key Tours who explained a lot about Athens and Piraeus history and hotspots. Highly recommended to complete your stay in the Hellas capital.

Fantastically organized, our tour leader was a wealth of helpful information! Would recommend taking a tour with them early in your trip as they give advice on public transport, point out some areas of interest not on the tour and basically help set up the rest of your trip to succeed! Our driver was fantastic as well, got us there and back safely and despite Athens traffic we were pretty much on schedule. Truly impress how he navigated the narrows streets with that huge tour bus! The trip itself was incredible. We were able to experience sunset at the Temple of Poseidon and watch the sun sink towards the horizon of the Mediterranean with the temple complex in the foreground was majestic. Would recommend this tour company to anyone, as a matter of fact I have another trip booked with them to visit Delphi! Can’t wait!
