It has been a very well organized trip with very nice people who I got to know during the trip. The driver was very nice, respecting the time as well as giving the needed instructions and explanations, answering the questions with pleasure. I’ve really enjoyed the trip! Once I’m back to Greece, I’d definitely book others.

Very good tour with a very good guide! Christo was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining making the entire tour extremely engaging. My wife and I joined the tour with one other traveller. Weather was a little overcast on the day we went but the views were still pretty impressive during sunset. A worthwhile tour.

We were picked up at the place of our choice by Cristos, who has given us a very pleasant afternoon and a lot of information about Greece, Athens, cape Sounion and the temple of Poseidon. The beautiful sunset at the temple is really worth the trip. If you book this trip, make sure to bring swimwear! There is a 30 min stop at the beach where you can cool off before going to the temple.

Great trip - nice to see the Athens Riviera as we drove to Cape Sounion. Christos was a very informative guide, he was fun and engaged with everyone on the tour. We had just under an hour at the beach on the way and then an hour at Poseidon’s Temple.
