Your driver will pick you up from your accommodation in the Athens city center at the designated time, and will drive you to Cape Sounion using the fastest route, depending on the traffic.

The tour was great, we were lucky to have Tom as our driver. Besides driving very carefully, he's also very nice and polite. He speaks English very well and we had a great time during the trip. The van was new and clean, we were picked up punctually and arrived at Cape Sounio as expected.

Great Trip to Sounion with Teens

My three teens and I used the service to go to Sounion on our first day in Greece. I was happy to see a nice big Mercedes van. The driver, Panos, was on-time, polite and a great driver! We enjoyed our time at the temple of Poseidon without huge bus crowds just as I had hoped. Panos provided us with cold water and played good music, but not too loud. I wish we could have taken more trips with him!

i think it's worth going

Due to our lack of confirmation, we were unable to visit the facility during the Easter holidays. He apologized and apologized. He was a very good driver. I would have liked to have been contacted in advance by the management, asking if it would be okay to visit the museum because it was closed.
