A highlight of my stay in Athens. The bus is very comfortable and the guide is very friendly. They provided some information about the stops and the places we passed by. Not too in depth about the temple of Poseidon, but adequate. This is a great way to spend half a day!

We were hesitant if we want to go out for a trip or enjoy one of our last days in Athens by the hotel pool. To go for the trip was the best decision and one of the highlights of our week in Athens. We are going to remember it for a long time. Our guide Christos picked us up in a luxury minivan in front of the hotel in time, the van was comfy, air conditioned and equipped with fridge with complimentary water. During the journey Christos gave us interesting info about the city districts and history of Athens and we even did an extra stop to see the lake Vouliagmeni. We had enough time to swim on the beach close to Poseidon's temple and the sunset itself and views were simply stunning. On the way back we got to chat about the life in Athens and other stuff we were interested in. I almost felt sad that the journey was ending and the way back is not longer. The whole experience was great. We highly recommend!

The guide was amazing he knew so much of history and also got to talk about life in Greece and athens. The guide picked me up in the hotel, he arrive on time and then he picked 2 couples, we were 5 in total. He took us as an extra to see a beautiful lake as we were good on time and it was quick stop to take picture and then we swam in a beach that has the view of cape sonium, it was beautiful, we also got enough tome in the beach for eating. Then we went up to see the temple and saw sunset, plenty of time to see it. Arrive back af night to my hotel, they drove me back. Many thanks!! P. S. That van was luxurious! I was even able to charge my phone from my seat (had the cable with me)
