Nothing quite like a Greek sunset from the Temple of Poseidon!

A fun, educational tour with a few extra stops along the way. Teddy, our tour guide, was very funny and even gave us Greek names at the end of the tour. We stopped at a beach bar (Castus), where we could swim in the water if you brought swimwear. The minibus was comfy, water was provided, and they had aircon! Reaching the Temple of Poseidon by sunset was quite a spectacular experience! Highly recommend doing the sunset tour, as the view from the temple is breathtaking.

We had an excellent time on the sunset tour with our tour guide Teddy. Teddy has great energy and made everyone feel comfortable and excited about the trip. He was very informative, while maintaining good humor which we really enjoyed. The pick up was easy and didn't take too long relative to other tours I've taken. The coach was clean and comfortable. The attractions we visited were all worth it and the beach bar food and drinks were reasonably priced and reasonably good. While you could probably visit these same places on your own, this tour was worth it for the informativeness, ease of travel and the great vibe of the group.

The private tour to the Temple of Poseidon was a great way to spend one of our days in Athens. The drive there was lovely and our guide gave us lots of interesting information. We loved walking around the temple and taking in the views. We had a lovely lunch at a restaurant on a nearby beach which our guide recommened. It is a very nice contrast to the busy side of Athens and the acropolis. Our guide was so friendly and informative. The van was super clean and comfortable.

Had a fantastic day out with Garry & our group. It was really interesting & Garry was a great tour guide. The temple of Poseidon is beautiful. Remember to bring a jacket as its pretty windy. We had a lively lunch in a taverna overlooking the temple. It was right on the beach & the sardines were delicious. It's quite a long late afternoon & evening trip so was glad we ate before we got back to Athens. You learn a lot about the history & culture of the Greek people & the drive there is really scenic so we wd highly recommend it. It's good value for money we think. Enjoy!

Teddy our tour guide was absolutely hilarious and very knowledgeable. He kept us laughing during the whole trip and shared everything he knew. We had a few stops along the route including a short time at the beach to relax and grab dinner. Would’ve been a good idea if they gave more information on the beach stop so we would’ve come more prepared. The temple was beautiful during sunset! Shame it was cloudy but a must see nevertheless. A great tour!

Perfect tour of Sounion and Poseidon temple.

"Teddy" was an outstanding tour guide on our 6-person tour. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and personable while at the same time testing our knowledge of Greek mythology. The tour was unrushed and he was flexible to allow us extra time/stops for photos. Ultimately, "Teddy" bestowed each of us with a Greek name and declared us honorable Greek citizens. Could not be happier with hotel pickup, tour, tour length, driver (Alex), or our tour guide!

Sunset at the Temple of Poseidon

We had a nice time and the temple is lovely. The guide needs a bit more experience. It would have been nice to know that we would have a one hour stop for lunch along the drive. We were happy as we had not eaten but several people ate before the tour not knowing we would stop along the water. I'd provide a more detailed description. Lovely views from the Temple.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Dear Mary, Thank you for your time to send us your feed back. Just wanted to clarify the following: The beach stop is described in the itinerary in the “ tour details “ section. The beach stop is not necessarily for dinner or lunch. Our company strictly does not deal with pre- arranged touristy restaurants or any kind of pre- arrangements. The purpose of this stop is relaxation and have a break from the drive from Athens before visiting the Temple of Poseidon.We choose a location that everybody can have multiple choices to spend this time. Some clients have dinner, others swim and many others just have a drink and relax. The main idea is to stop at a location that everyone could be satisfied. Nevertheless, your opinion counts.. and we will bend over your remarks and try to improve more… Thank you once again!

Great half day trip!! lots of nice little stops on the way to see different sites and to break up the journey. Our guide Gary was very knowledgeable and bubbly, she kept us entertained the whole trip. We were hoping to see the sunset at the temple, however it was overcast, the temple is still in a stunning setting. Gary elevated the trip for us with the excitement and interest she provided whilst telling her tales, she also provided us with some reading recommendations, our group have all purchased the books when getting home!!

The experience at the actual temple was wonderful and breathtaking, our guide Tito was awesome and so funny. Unfortunately we lost half of the trip due to the van breaking up and even the door got jammed and it wouldn’t open. So basically we only had time for the Poseidon temple that’s it. We lost almost two hours of 4-5 hr tour. True, they gave us free tickets to the temple (10 euros or so) but still, I don’t care about that I cared about seeing Greece I didn’t come all this way to be stuck in a van for hours with no air conditioning. So I have mixed feelings about this trip, I know it was beyond our tour team to do anything but still it shouldn’t take two hours for the company to fix this (we were still in Athens not in the middle of no where). So the company needs to do better, I won’t be booking trips with this company anymore and I wouldn’t recommend them either.

Dear sir, We perfectly understand your disappointment for the bus failure. We did our best to replace the van the faster possible. This is Athens you are very correct! A big city with traffic jam, big distances and consequently slow response time. We are happy though, that our staff did its best to provide the best service possible. So, once again we do apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you.
