Activity Info

A half day afternoon trip from Athens full of images and breathtaking views. Begin your Sounio tour with a wonderful carbon-neutral 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..

We received detailed and helpful instructions regarding pickup for the tour. Pickup and drop-off were smooth and professional. The tour bus was comfortable and there were well-planned restroom breaks. Our guide was courteous, charming and informative. We felt that there was an exceptional balance of information given regarding the site itself, the wider history and myths of Athens, and also relevant modern history. The Temple of Poseidon was well worth visiting, and we can definitely recommend watching the sunset from this beautiful natural location. All in all, we felt that the tour was extremely good value for money and we can recommend the trip to anyone visiting Athens.

The Cape Sounio trip was quite amazing. Having done 2 trips organized by Key Tours (we also did the Delphi tour), we will to using only Key Tours for our day trips.

Overall, a nice half day trip to Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, which is a stunningly beautiful site. Our guide Katerina, was interesting and Tomas, the driver, was great. I knocked off a star (should be a half star, really), because the tour didn't last long enough for us to see the sunset from Cape Sounion. We saw it on the bus, but that isn't the same.

É ótimo ter a possibilidade de visitar um templo maravilhoso, que se localiza fora de Atenas
e não é de fácil acesso por outros meios de transporte.

The coach trip was roughly an hour and our guide pointed out things of interest along the way. We chose the afternoon tour of the temple and it was beautiful, and lovely to feel the fresh sea air.
