The tour was great. Our driver was very nice, patient, and accommodating. He picked us up an hour early (with a small fee) so that we could spend an hour swimming in Lake Vouliagmeni. He also provided a dinner recommendation on the way to Cape Sounion. If you want more of a "tour guide" along the drive, there may be other more suitable options. However, we were very happy with our trip and he did point out several interesting things along the way.

Markos was very accommodating, on time, and he knows many wonderful little places along the way. He was a great host. We stopped to take fantastic photos. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't cooperating, so we couldn't swim in the Aegean, but we were able to take in the coastline sights. We arrived at a good time in the afternoon, had an excellent meal at a place recommended by Markos. As the temple itself is open until sundown, we were able to be there at a time when most tour buses had gone. The views are incredible. Highly recommended.

El paseo estuvo genial. El auto perfecto y el conductor también. Pudimos hacer el paseo surgían nuestros tiempos y pudiendo parar a nadar en unas playas maravillosas. Además elegimos donde almorzar. 200 euros no es nada caro para 4 personas y no tiene comparación con una excursión en autobús donde te llevan donde quieren y como ellos quieren. Realmente muy recomendable.
