Professionalism and Kindness are the watchwords that describe this unique experience: the Acropolis of Cape Sounion with its imposing temple of Poseidon is breathtaking. We felt at one with nature and let ourselves be inspired by the magnificent vibrations that only that place can give you. I also underline the skill of our guide Helena who with a slow and fluid English allowed us to capture every curiosity on the spot! Interesting and highly recommended.

The ride to Cape Sounion was really fun as we drove through some really great places along the coastline. The Temple of Poseidon is the perfect photo spot. It was so beautiful to see all these colors in the sky. Having a licensed tour guide with you
