The tour was wonderful but where we were dropped off when they could have dropped us off at Brown Acropol was a bit questionable considering we confirmed we were happy to have just been dropped off back at Brown Acropol. Thus, we had to walk a fair bit more. It was raining. More surprising was to catch up and see our tour guide being dropped off at Brown Acropol! That was so strange!

My comments are not gripes nor compliants. I want others to know to be prepared for lots of waiting. Wait to be picked up. Drive around picking others up. You may want to bring a snack/drink. Long drive back too. The tour itself is fabulous. I went to see the Temple but this coastline blew me away. The beaches here are so cool. Numerous little coves. Lots of places to jump off something high. Lots of beach clubs. I was taken away about thinking about a locals life here. Our tour guide was clearly highly educated and sitting in the front on the way back I really enjoyed the additional conversation and insights she provided What a country they have here!. I highly recommend taking this tour. I’m using Key Tours again tomorrow to go to Delphi.

Nice trip

Cape Sounion is very worthwhile to see the sunset. Even if you are never alone, you will still find a quiet spot. Before you get a short tour and afterwards there is still a little time to drink the included wine. The tour guide and the bus driver were very nice. The ride was also very safe and pleasant. According to the plan and according to the confirmation, I was to be picked up at 6:30 p.m. In fact, however, I (the first in the collection route) was already collected at 5 p.m. maybe I did not receive an email directly from the organizer - so it is advisable to have the time confirmed again beforehand.
