An amazing experience to do while in Greece and one that we will never forget. Our guides Andriana and Pathos were lovely and accommodating, from picking us up from our hotel, to the kayaking and snorkelling. The food recommended to try was amazing and the view from the table was incredible. Seeing the sun setting from the Temple of Poseidon was something we will never forget. Would highly recommend this activity for visitors in the future.

I highly recommend this kayak trip. Our guide, Foivos, was knowledgeable, extremely pleasant and fluent in English, extremely capable guiding our kayaking in open waters, and shared much information about Sounion and Greece in general, and provided a wonderful meal at the end of the kayak trip. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

We had an amazing day at Sounio, a real once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience. Kayaking around crystal water, and even snorkelling from a private beach made this excursion one-of-A-kind. Our guide was an absolute pleasure to have spend the day with us, he was both accommodating and helpful (aswell as a right laugh!). I would recommend this to anyone that’s looking to see Greece through a whole new lens.
