Note: If your hotel is not listed in the "pickup hotels" , please note we can start the tour from any hotel in the central Athens district. [ enter the hotel details in the booking notes ]

Hotels outside the Athens center may incur extra charges.

Meet your guide at your central Athens hotel and set off on a scenic drive along the Attica Riviera. Soak up the scenery of the Saronic Gulf as you wind your way along the coast, past seaside villages, soaring sea cliffs and sandy beaches.

Arrive at Cape Sounion at the southernmost tip of the peninsula and catch a first glimpse of the cliff-top Temple of Poseidon, silhouetted against the sky. Spend time admiring the grand ruins and striking Doric columns of the Greek temple, which dates back to 44 BC and was dedicated to the god of the sea. Learn more about the mighty monument from your guide and spot the graffiti carved onto one of the columns by Lord Byron back in the early 19th century. Don’t forget to bring your camera—the views from the cape stretch far across the Aegean sea and extend all the way to the Peloponnese on a clear day.

Next, hop back into your private vehicle for the journey to Vouliagmeni Bay, a romantic seaside town framed by lapping waves and golden beaches. Settle into your seats at Ithaki, one of Attica’s most beautifully situated restaurants, where you enjoy either lunch or dinner depending on the tour option selected. Look out over the dreamy landscapes of Vouliagmeni Bay as you tuck into a 3-course spread of delicious Greek cuisine, made with fresh, seasonal ingredients (sample menu below). With your appetite sated, journey back to Athens, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Great tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Cape Sounio and The Temple of Poseidon. Maria the guide was great and gave us loads of information. Personally I would have preferred a more Greek style Taverna than high end restaurant where we had lunch.

Great tour on a hot day in Greece. Our tour guide and driver was so nice and informative. The visit to Poseidon's temple was amazing and the lunch we had at Vouliagmeni was delicous. Thank you for making us have a memorable day!

My mother and I took this private tour on a cloudy, cool and windy day in late May, but it made for dramatic pictures of the Temple of Apollo and Cape Sounion. The temple was remarkably intact and the many partridges on the site were very cute! The drive to Sounion and back was beautifully smooth thank you, Stavros! and Gina, our guide, was very engaging and knowledgeable about ancient and modern Greece. After our time at the Cape, we were taken to a lovely restaurant in Vouliagmeni with a view of the Aegean and had a nice four-course set lunch. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you both for a wonderful day!

I can not explain just how amazing this trip was. Worth every penny and more. Our tour guide was the BEST! She treated us like royalty and provided so much history and knowledge is was incredible. I could have spent my whole time in Athens with her just talking about the history. The sites are breathtaking - the lunch was very nice as well. it was the best day we had in Athens by far.
