Athens: Temple of Poseidon and Cape Sounion Sunset Tour

1. Athens: Temple of Poseidon and Cape Sounion Sunset Tour

After traveling for a few kilometers through the South Coast and the Athenian Riviera, you will be bedazzled by the famous landscapes which surround Sounion. Sounion (or Sunium) was an important ancient Greek religious sanctuary dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena. Spectacularly located on a promontory in southern Attica, the site is dominated by the temple of Poseidon perched 70 meters above the sea on the cliff edge. Sounion is the setting for several episodes in Greek mythology, and is specifically mentioned as a place of religious significance in Homer’s Odyssey. In some myths, this is also the spot where the Athenian king Aegeus threw himself into the sea in despair upon having sighted the black sail of his son Theseus’ ship returning from Crete after his battle with the Minotaur. If you are keen on visiting the outskirts of Athens, such as Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, you will be able to do so with a private tour. In a luxury limousine van with a private driver, you will be driven along to the Athens Riviera down to the famous Cape Sounion and back to Athens or Piraeus.

Amazing trip with George! We even called an audible and went to dinner after buying tickets at Poseidon so we didn’t have to stick around and wait. George took us to a great seafood restaurant with fresh catches and amazing food. We then drove back to Poseidon where he got us right up to past the ticket booth. After we finished he was right there to take us home. George gave us great local insights and stories of the towns we passed, his life as a pro motorcycle racer and playboy, jet setting his way around the med. He settled down to give tours after finishing first place (again) and wrecking. Great stories and many laughs! Book the tour, you’ll love it! My kids stayed entertained the whole time so worth every Penny!

We enjoyed our tour. After being picked up at our place, we were given audio tapes to listen to on way to the destination. We stopped several times during the drive to take pictures and make “pit stops”. We arrived at the beautiful temple in plenty of time to eat dinner and check out the souvenir shop before heading up the hill for sunset. What a view!! Truly am amazing feeling enjoying the fabulous sunset knowing we were standing in the footsteps of so many others (including Lord Byron). Our driver/guide was very nice and was happy to stop whenever we asked. We would highly recommend taking this tour.

Amazing from the moment we turned up. Fantastic service and great guide with Marina so caring and engaging. We loved every minute. Recommend 120%

Bikes were awesome, guide was great- was flexible in anything we wanted to do or places to stop. I HIGHLY recommend!

Such a great way to explore the city. Especially with an 11 year old boy. Guides are great and super friendly.
