“Beautiful sights on the edge of the Aegean Sea!” This was a great trip. It was very convenient to be picked up from our hotel and driven to the sight from there. The Temple of Poseidon was amazing. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable as the tour moved from Athens to the Temple of Poseidon. There was time to experience the sights and the coffee/gift shop before heading back to Athens. The only thing that would have made the trip better, would be to have waited for the sunset at the site. Great overall experience!

This tour was very enjoyable as we travelled through different areas of Greece along the sea line. On the way there, the guide provided A LOT of historical information and background on the Temple of Poseidon and Greece which was presented in a very captivating way. The view from the Temple is amazing and you can take nice pictures if you are not afraid of heights too much. Because of long travel time, it's critical to have a good guide who can provide information in entertaining way, so you don't get bored on the way.

Itse kohde oli kiinnostava, mutta siellä olemiseen jäi kovin vähän aikaa odottelun ja "pick-up-servicen" viedessä ajan. Olimme reissussa 6h 20min, josta paikan päällä 1h 15min. Vaikutti siltä, että isojen hotellien kohdalla pick up service toimii, mutta muut saavat odotella pitkiä aikoja. The Place itself was interesting, but there was too much waiting and sitting in the bus. They should plan pick up service routes better. Now customers of big hotels are served quite ok, but others have to wait and wait.

I went on an afternoon trip to Cape Sounion. A taxi arrived a bit late to pick me up from the hotel and I was dropped off outside the Ket tours office where other people turned up and eventually the coach arrived. The guide was informative during the trip and the journey along the coastline was really pleasant and scenic. It was well worth the traveling time to visit the temple of Poseidon and it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

We used Key tours as our transfer to and from the airport to the hotel. They were on time and very friendly, making it an easy start and end to our trip. When i booked the transfer i got a seperate email from them with the itinerary, detailing exactly where they would be in the airport to pick us up and what time they would collect us from our hotel which was very helpful. Whilst in athens we found we had some extra time so we booked an afternoon tour with key tours to cape sounion. The guide, Gemma, was absolutely amazing! So friendly, knowledgable and made it a very fun and enjoyable trip! The tour was a great lazy afternoon trip and the views were absolutely stunning! The drive along the scenic coast was so relaxing and cape sounion was indescribale! I would deffinatley recommend this trip to anyone! I wish we had booked all of our other excursions with key tours as they seemed to be more efficent and friendly than chat tours.

Breathtaking views Breathtaking views of the Athenian coastline. Temple has a perfect 360 degree view of the coastline. A little confusing when and where to meet for this trip. the ticket said 3pm, but thats when the bus leaves for the temple-not when it picks you up in the lobby. Worth the trip, cant find anything else at this price with a nice tour guide to that area.
