activity info

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

“convenient way to reach the cape and temple with lots of good info”

After failing at renting a motorcycle, I begrudgingly booked this tour and it was totally worth it! It was relaxing not having to drive, and Katarina was full of fun fact from the city (Fix beer....) to the temple. I personally felt we had enough time to take in the sights and then got to relax again on the way back. All around good afternoon!

Visiting this temple is a must. The views of the coastline as well as from the temple are unrivaled. Absolutely breathtaking! I also enjoyed all the knowledge and stories imparted by the guide during the bus ride to and while at the site. Overall, I am glad to have booked this tour. Our only complaint is the limited amount of time allowed on site (30 minutes guided and 30 minutes alone). We only had time for pictures before having to run back to the bus. It would've been nice if the actual visit could be done more leisurely, perhaps with enough time to grab a coffee at the cafeteria. It is also unfortunate that the tour doesn't allow for a view of the sunset, as this is one of the main attractions of this place. We were back in Athens by 6pm for a total of 3.5 hours (as opposed to 4 hrs as advertised).

We loved it! Perfect afternoon trip both out of Athens and to the temple. Nice drive along the coastline. Guide was great! Told us about Athens as we were leaving and then all about the temple, we then had free time.

Martina our guide was lovely and well informed while our driver was smooth. The drive along the coast is beautiful and the coach bus comfortable with big picture windows. Of course the temple site itself is fabulous.
