Our journey kicks off early in the evening so you can catch the magnificent coloring of the sky, while you soak up scenic views of the Athens Riviera on our way to cape Sounio. You will soon get to gaze over the Doric-column Temple of Poseidon settled on the top of a craggy coast hill overlooking the blues of the Saronic Gulf and the Aegean Sea; follow the clues of Lord Byron and meander around the same place where King Aegeus led all the days of his life.

Take your partner or family and join us for a natural spa experience in the thermal waters of Vouliagmeni Lake; get the chance to visit the sanctuary of Artemis – the Greek goddess of hunting - in Brauron; follow us to a wine tasting escapade near Sounio and meet with wine connoisseurs that will introduce you to the art of organic wine.

Some of the monuments you are going to visit:

The temple of Poseidon

The construction of the Temple of Poseidon started in 444 BC and was completed in only 4 years. This all-marble temple was the epicentre of Poseidon's cult with his colossal bronze statue of over 20 ft. laying inside the structure. On the site, the Athenians offered as a votive offering a whole Persian trireme that was captured after the naval battle of Salamis. The temple was decorated with a frieze, so fragmentary today that scholars do not agree on its iconography although it is rather safe to say that it depicted scenes from Centauromachy,  Gigantomachy, and some deeds of Theseus.

  • My friend and I wanted to do a last minute trip to Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon before we left the next day back to Los Angeles. Greeking.me was able to book us an amazing private tour down the coast to the temple. It was perfect timing to catch the sun setting. Everything was perfect! Thank you!

  • We booked four tours with Greeking.me [Night tour, Foodies, Acropolis and Cape Sounion]. All four guides were super,professional, knowledgeable, interesting and fun. Nikos, the owner of Greeking.me, is quick to respond and eager to help you have an unforgettable visit to Athens.

    - Deborah K
  • We were a group of 10, who booked 2 one day tours to get an introduction to Greece and Athens. We couldn't have been happier. First, Anna and Nikos, spent a considerable amount of time helping me develop an itinerary that would give us a good balance of the "must see" sites with a taste of what life is like for local Athenians. The end result was enjoyable, comprehensive and very reasonably priced.
