Fotis, our tour guide, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and courteous. Since we were a small group of six, the tour felt like a family roadtrip, boarding the beautiful Aegean coast. We started early at 8:15am so he invited us to a delicious specialty iced coffee and water. We continue our tour with a stop in a nice beach where we were able to swim and relax for an hour and a half. Right after we headed to the Temple of Poseidon while our tour guide explained the interesting story of this Greek God. At the temple we were able to admire and take pictures of the breath taking views of Cape Sounion. Then, on our way back he took us to a popular seafood restaurant where we enjoyed and share as good friends or family, some delicious and tradicional Greek seafood. Efcharisto Fotis! You gave us one of the most memorable and wonderful tour we ever had.

We had a great day out on the boat. The staff were super helpful with sorting out a pickup from our location which was fantastic. Especially since we were staying in Perissa. We did leave about 20-30mins late but that’s only due to the amount of boats in the small bay and you can’t really expect anything less in summer. Swimming was great, food and drinks were good and staff were friendly. Overall loved it.

Incredibile tour with extremely knowledgeable guide. We truly enjoyed learning more about the acropolis and visiting Plaka. The tour through Greek, Roman and Turkish history was incredible.

Beautiful environment and really nice people. The horses are great and the food they served was really good as well.

Great tour ! Our guide was a wealth of information about the Island . Would highly recommend
