Customer Reviews

  • Stuart Thompson

    The tour to Cape Sounion went well. Left on bus from our end of the Plakas pick up point around 4:30 and got there about 6:30, with two brief stops enroute for photo opportunities. Sunset not till 8:15, so we nestled in the windy cafe adjacent to the Temple and got snacks and drinks while we waited. This evening the sunset was somewhat blocked by clouds and a small mountain but still powerful. Back on bus a little after 8:30 and faster return, with no stops and little traffic. The Temple looked similar to half a dozen temples we have seen around Greece so far, but excellent top of the mountain perspective and not a bad walk up to it.

  • Rachel Fogarity

    1 issue with the trip was that we had to pay to get up to poseidon ruins which we were never told of. the trip from Athens was nice on an A/C coach with a few others all english speaking and having audio commentary added to the journey. some nice pictures and destination was worth it.
