Amazing site and a wonderfully guided experience! Our guide was so well informed and engaging, giving a lot of great historical tidbits and facts about modern Greece which all make you appreciate the experience all the more. The temple and views at Sounio are incredible and this tour was a fantastic way to see it, especially as you also get a nice little beach stop on the way!

The temple and sunset are absolutely gorgeous, a highlight of our trip to Greece. Our guide told interesting stories and was generally engaging and knowledgeable. An FYI that you get enough time at the beach to swim or sit for dinner, not enough time to do both.
