    This tour was so beautiful!!! The ride to Cape Sounion was picturesque! My tour guide, Teddy, was absolutely amazing! He made the hour ride entertaining and engaging. We stopped at a beach area to swim or eat at restaurant, which Teddy helped out with food suggestions, like ordering Bouyiourdi. The Temple of Poseidon is a sight to behold at sunset and I'm so glad I got to experience it because of this tour. I definitely recommend anyone looking for great pictures to sign up for this tour.

    It was such a lovely experience. Christos, our guide, had such great energy and you can tell he loves his job. He told us stories and educated us about the gods and the Athenian landscape. We stopped at a few spots on the way to stretch our legs and hear new stories. The temple at sunset was breathtaking!

    The sunset was magical! The sunset was AMAZING! And there was a a cool breeze that felt refreshing. A lovely swim before we entered the site was welcomed after an extremely warm day. The only down side was the heavy traffic on the return - something to keep in mind if you book on a Sunday. All of Athens goes to the beach on Sunday’s.
