Athens private day tour: From Athena to Poseidon

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 5 out of 5 based on 9 reviews

Visit two of the most important cultural sites of Ancient Greece on the Athens and Cape Sounion  full day Tour. Explore 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.

 

From Athena to Poseidon private tour begins with the short ascent to the Acropolis. Stroll around the ancient citadel while your professional  expert  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, the tour returns to Athens.

Highlights

  • Visit the Acropolis
  • Enjoy a blend of modern and ancient architecture in the Greek capital
  • Marvel at the beauty of the Parthenon
  • See stunning views of the Aegean sea from Cape Sounion
  • Enjoy the services of a private expert professional guide

Dear Dimitris, Dear Helena, It was so nice to meet you and all the employees of the Athens office last week. I feel like this was exactly what was needed for us to be able to work together in a much more effective, efficient and, not the least, enjoyable way. I’d like also to thank you so much for all your nice attention to welcome. I have spend such a nice time with you! Also my friend thank you for the nice present of being able to visit the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum with such a great guide as Marianne. This was one of the most fantastic visit I ever had! We also appreciated a lot most of your addresses and tips! Finally, I’d like also to share with you 2 great address we discovered and we believe you could also enjoy: F+W (Food + Wine): is just a great place of the French gastronomy: delicious food, nice music (reservation needed, as of 10pm it is really full) The restaurant of the Byzantine and Christian museum is excellent with lovely garden and terrasse with orientation South…and yes, we had Sun! … Thanks again and looking forward continuing this collaboration that started so well!

We were a group of 4 that were looking for a day tour of Athens and Cape Souinio. From the very first email Minais was very informative. She provided us with a recommended itinerary but indicated that it was our day and there was flexibility in the schedule. We were 15 minutes early for the tour but our guide and driver were there with a large sign and smile on their face. The four of us agreed that it was like meeting a long lost relative. THe guides love and knowledge of Athens is very evident. I just want to close with a big personal thank you to Marianna. You made 4 Canadians very happy. It was a handshake when we meet you at the hotel but it was hugs all around when we left.

During our cruise of the Mediterranean, we had the pleasure of a full day tour of Athens with Key Tours. Our tour guide, Apostolos, took us all over this beautiful city, including giving us a suggestion, at our request, for a "non-tourist" cafe to have a lunch of authentic Greek food. Our van was extremely comfortable, air-conditioned, and had all the modern conveniences. Apostolos took us to all the popular sites and beautiful scenic overlooks giving us enough time to really appreciate the ruins. He made the most of our time in Athens, and even made time for us to see the Acropolis lit up at night. He was open to our suggestions, and we enjoyed listening to his knowledge of the history of Greece and Athens in particular. He was warm, friendly, and very professional. I definitely will use this tour service again on a future trip to Greece.

My tour of Athens was wonderful. Dimitris worked with me to customize my full day tour to meet my needs and expectations. He gave me a running commentary on the history and significance of the places that I visited, answering all my questions and giving me pointers on how to get the most from each site. This tour was indeed the highlight of my trip.

I just wanted to let you know how thrilled we were with our day tour of Athens that we organised with Key Tours. Our driver picked us up promptly from our ship and could not have been more helpful or courteous. Our guide , Maria, gave us an interesting & informative commentary as we drove around to each destination and also to some excellent lookouts. Maria, who was wonderful. They also took us to the Acropolis first and so there were no queues!

We only had one day in Athens and knew that we would find it difficult to see all of the sights without a professional guide and tour. The car was comfortable, the guide very knowledgeable and familiar with the city and sights so he was able to get us to each sight timely and provide helpful hints on what to see and how to avoid some of the crowds. My entire group (parents, husband and myself) had a great time and were very pleased with our tour. I would recommend this tour to any of my friends or family.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with George and Marianna. There were to be demonstrations, so we visited the sites that would be affected , like the Parliament building, as early as possible. Then we were able to see the rest of the sights in Athens before we headed to the Temple of Poseidon. We stopped for a leisurely lunch by the sea and proceeded to Cape Sounion. On the drive there and back, we got a wonderful commentary on the history of Greece and the current situation in Greece. We couldn't have enjoyed the day more.

George was my driver he was prompt, courteous, friendly, and Mariianna our guide speaks excellent English and knows Greek history in and out. I was so happy with my experience I booked another service the next day for an airport ride. They took me to places in Athens the large tour buses can't get to.They would stop for pictures every time I asked and never seemed pressed for time.
