Itinerary
Select your preferred departure on booking and, after pickup from your central Athens hotel, set off along the Athens Riviera by air-conditioned minivan.

Pass through Athens’ suburbs of Glyfada and Vouliagmeni, and admire the Saronic Gulf, seaside resorts, and villages as you follow the coastal roads east.

During your outward or return journey (depending on selected departure), take a break beside the sea. Perhaps enjoy a light meal or drinks (own expense) or lounge or swim at a beach. If you plan to swim, bring your swimming gear.

On arrival, explore the fifth-century Temple of Poseidon perched on the headland. Listen as your guide narrates its history, including how it was dedicated to the god of the sea, Poseidon, and served as a beacon for mariners. (Entry to the Temple of Poseidon is at your own expense.)

Soak in the sunset over the Aegean (depending on selected departure), and take photos of the panoramas before your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.

Overview
Unless you hire a car, visiting Cape Sounion from Athens independently means a relatively long bus journey, with multiple stops. This half-day, small-group tour provides an easy alternative, with air-conditioned minivan travel, guided commentary on the cape’s Temple of Poseidon, and ample time to admire the ruins and Aegean views. A choice of departures allows for a sunset visit, plus there’s a beach break en route as a bonus.
Highlights
  • Hassle-free half-day trip to Cape Sounion from Athens
  • Travel in comfort by minivan with a beach stop en route
  • Admire the clifftop views and Poseidon Temple with insight from a guide
  • Limited to 11, with option of sunset trip

not recommended tour

Due to a data connection problem I did not receive the email informing me of the location and time of the pick up, so my tour was kindly rescheduled at no extra cost. However, the tour was disappointing. No tour guide was present, although it...More

Hi, I’m not sure if it’s changed, but when I went about 3 weeks ago the departure time was 4.30pm - maybe ring to double check? 4.30 is a good time to depart and do everything in between during the tour to arrive at Poseidon... More
