Sounion at Sunset

Panos was our driver last night on our trip to Sounion. My wife loved that he was very safe and she was at ease despite the sometimes windy roads. We had wonderful views and wonderful pictures. Panos stopped for us to get a quick bite at a place he recommended on way back to hotel. We had a great time. I would recommend.

Our driver was very good. Safe and friendly and spoke very good English. The trip along the coast was picturesque especially the lake. This temple is sited in a nice spot on the edge of the coast and well worth a visit.

Loved the ride down the coast & lively conversation with Manos

So glad we took this tour, as it gave us a different perspective of the Athens area from the center city area we were staying. Manos was a very good tour guide, who told us many stories about Greece and the areas we toured. He was accommodating, and gave us good advice of places to eat & visit. If you have the time, this is a trip worth taking as you take a nice drive down the coast, seeing yachts, coastal towns, a nice lake, and then, of course the Poseidon temple, which is very interesting.
