activity info

Starting from Piraeus cruise port with your luxury airconditioned mini bus, you will have the opportunity to explore Athens on your own pace with a professional guide. Visit the world renowned Acropolis of Athens and see the fabled Cape Sounion, where you can still see the majestic remains of the Temple of Poseidon, the highlight of the Cape Sounion portion of the tour. The Athens & Cape Sounion Tour remains one of the most popular Athens Day Tours.

Begin your shore excursion with a short stop to Panathinaiko Stadium where the first Olympic Games took place. Continue with a panoramic drive passing by ex Royal palace, Zappion Hall, Hadrian's Arch, Tomb of Unknown Soldier, Academy, University and National Library. Next stop is the world famous Acropolis. Stroll around the ancient citadel while your professional  expert Athens tour guide relates to you the fascinating history of such monuments as the Temple of Athena Nike, the Theatre of Dionysus and, of course, the majestic Parthenon.  

Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was hugely important to the Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that. Cape Sounion tours have attracted celebrities in the past – the Romantic poet Byron’s name is inscribed in a pillar. After time to explore the Temple and its surroundings, you will drive back to your ship.

how much do you expect from a guided tour when you take one? yeah, just another guide trying to stuff all the history in your brain till you can take no more and end up yawning and nodding without listening......but who would have thought that a historical tour would end up giving us memories that we will always keep so close to our heart. Our guide Marianna , who seemed more like a student, was extremely informative and at the same time very witty and humorous...she was a combination of fox history and your favorite sitcom.....we came to know so many facts not just confined to acropolis and cape sounion but the overall history and mythology of the country. We were a group of 8 people and none of us felt a tad bored listening and discussing about the places with her.And the best part is i remember most of it even now ,even though history is surely not one of my favorite subjects.......if there was an award for excellence in tour guiding, it would surely go to her. Now whenever we look back to our stay in this wonderful country filled with even more wonderful people, the reminiscences of that tour and our guide cum friend bring a smile to our lips....... THANK YOU KEY TOURS....THANK YOU MARIANNA

We recently went to Greece via a cruise line and decided to use outside services for our tours rather than the cruise organized tours. Best decision ever! Key tours service was a perfect solution for us. They will suggest places to go but are also very flexible if you have your own ideas for what you want to do. They picked us up just outside the port and were easy to find as they were holding a sign with our name on it. We went to the Acropolis and then a nice drive out to the coast to see the Temple of Poseidon. This is a lovely service to use in Greece.
