    Temple of Poseidon
    Stop: 75 minutes - Admission included
    Our tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Rivera. During this relaxing ride you’ll enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs, including Hellinikon Olympic complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza. Arriving at the Cape Sounion, you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important for ancient Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that. After visiting the Temple, filled from the beauty, the history and the culture of this site we will wait to admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine. And when the sun begins to slowly touch the sea it is the perfect moment for a glass of wine, before returning back to your hotel.

This was a very nice tour. We were picked up at a nearby hotel. Very convenient. The drive to Cape Sounion is long but it’s a lovely drive. Spent about 90 minutes here. Lots of time for pics and a glass of wine afterwards. The guide was sweet and very informative. Glad we took

The sunset was amazing, but even though they said it would be a hotel pick up, we had to walk to a neighbouring hotel for pick up, and the bus arrived over half an hour late. When we arrived there was little to no communication so no one really knew if we had to wait for the

Dear Guest, Thank you for your time to send us your review. I am happy to hear that you found the Cape Sounio sunset magical. Indeed the view of the sunset in combination with the temple of Apollo and the Saronic Gulf is really majestic and one of the most renowned in Greece along with that of Santorini. As regards the rest of your comment, kindly note that we offer a complimentary pick up service to better serve the transportation needs of your company and we also offer the option to all guests to directly come to our office if they want to save time. According to our accurate tracking systems of our bus the bus arrived on time and indeed the tour finished at 10 pm which is the scheduled time to finish. I hope this helps and I always stay at your service. Best Regards, Dimitris Bistolas | Μanaging Director

While the sunset at Cape Sounion was spectacular, the tour guide did not let us stay until the sun had completely set. The activity was supposed to provide a chance to take pictures of the sunset, and also enjoy a complementary glass of wine. Our guide rushed us out before

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your time to send us your review and for mentioning that the site is worth a visit. As regards the rest of your comment, I feel very sorry for not fully satisfying your expectations on this occasion. Kindly note that since the sun has gone down and the sunset comes to an end the archaeological site of Sounio closes for its audience and this is something we are obliged to respect as a company. I hope this helps and I always remain at your disposal. Kindest Regards, Dimitris Bistolas | Μanaging Director

Joined in last minute when a tour with another operator was cancelled. They accept last minute walk-ins at their Key Tours office. Good guide and driver. Clean bus. Comes with a complimentary glass of red/white wine or soft drink. Would have given 5 stars if we left on time
